What better way to celebrate May the 4th (Star Wars Day) than listening to the wise and talented Mandalorian actor Giancarlo Esposito, along with Clone Wars and Bad Batch composer Kevin Kiner, on a brand new podcast! LA Comic Con is launching the very first episode of their nerd-centric podcast titled: “The “Comic Con Meta*Pod,” featuring the above mentioned special guests, on May 4th.
Esposito is always a treat to listen to, as I wrote about in my coverage of LA Comic Con this past December. I can’t wait to hear what he has to say, along with checking out this new podcast hosted by Hector Navarro (podcast host for Nerdist Book Club! SpongeBob BingePants and Heroes Reforged!) and Executive Producer for the iHeartPodcast Network and art/culture critic Joelle Monique (writer for Teen Vogue, Playboy, and Vulture).
The podcast will focus on comics, gaming, sci-fi, and pop culture news, feature celebrity guests, music spotlights, and epic trivia battles. This week’s trivia contest will feature The Droid Builders versus The Mandalorian Mercs. Future celebrity guests will include: Donald Faison (Scrubs, Clueless), Seth Green (Family Guy, Robot Chicken, Austin Powers), and Sarah Chalke (Rick and Morty).
Comic creators such as Trina Robbins (Wonder Woman), Peter David (The Incredible Hulk), and Jim Krueger (Justice) will also be featured on the podcast.
New episodes of Comic Con Meta*Pod drop every Wednesday, and you can listen to the first episode by clicking here!
