Welcome everyone to our 200th episode of Canned Air! We spend the episode looking back on our favorite moments, welcome some friends from the shows past, and play play our very own version of Canned Air Street Smarts!

We start in the Retro Roundtable by playing some clips of our favorite moments from the last 200 episodes. The journey to 200 has been nothing short of amazing and has exceeded our wildest expectations, so join us as we look back on a few of our favorite memories.

After that, we welcome back to the show Richard Rivera and Alex Lobato to not only catch up, but to talk about their Kickstarter for Shadow Play #1, running until Sept. 13. Shadow Play is an all-ages fantasy/adventure starring two unpopular high school students who become friends. Soon they discover their pasts are mysteriously linked and, through a magical mishap, Bard loses his shadow. Now they must venture into the Shadow Realm to save both Bard's ... and his shadow's ... lives. Don’t miss your chance to back this great comic!

Then we close the episode playing our version of the old TV game show, Street Smarts! Jack and Jake have to guess whether or not our 3 mystery guests answered the questions I asked them correctly or not. Come on it and play along. Thanks to everyone who has helped make Canned Air possible over the past 4 years!

After an exhausting weekend at the convention, and a week off to recover, we return with another thrilling episode! We welcome comic creator Travis Sengaus to the show this week to first help us celebrate the career of Tom Hanks in our Retro Roundtable. With a long list to choose from, there’s hardly a soul alive who doesn’t have a favorite Tom Hanks Film. Apollo 13, Sully, Castaway, Captain Phillips….on second thought, let’s title this Retro Roundtable “Why You Should Never Travel With Tom Hanks!”

Then we turn our attention to Travis to discuss his comic BIG HITTERS, which was successfully funded on Kickstarter. BIG HITTERS is a full-color sci-fi, buddy comedy, action/adventure crime story about a pair of hitmen trying to make a living on both sides of the law in a post-war galaxy. Think Lethal Weapon in space meets Guardians of the Galaxy in the streets, raised on Saturday morning cartoons and R-Rated movies. Be sure to head over to TravisSengaus.com.

Greetings loyal listeners and welcome to our coverage of the 2017 Wizard World Columbus Comic Con! We had a great time, met a lot of amazingly talented people, and watched a lot of great entertainment!
We started in Artist Alley where Jake interviews Ryan Ruffatti of the comic Teleport, and friend of the show Brian Lau and his comic Staunch Ambition. Two great comics that you won’t want to miss, so come in and hear all about them.
Then we get to talk with Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk) about the Hulk and what he thinks of the characters evolution, followed by a chat with Thomas Ian Nicholas (Rookie of the Year, American Pie) about his films and band, The Thomas Ian Nicholas Band. 
Thomas, along with Lani Sarem, was also promoting and selling pre-orders for Sarem’s  upcoming book, Handbook for Mortals. Handbook for Mortals is the first book in the series of this urban fantasy, paranormal romance series by author Lani Sarem. Following Zade through the trials--and romance--of finding her own place in the world, readers will identify with their own struggles to fit in, reflected in the fantastic, yet mundane world of Zade's life.
Stay tuned after the show to hear our audio footage of the David Tennant (Dr. Who, Duck Tales). Some of it is a bit difficult to hear, but its sure to please any Dr. Who fan! Thanks to everyone who took the time to speak with us!

This week we focus our attention on one of most influential, and misunderstood, organizations of the 20th century, Playboy. In this weeks Retro Roundtable, we discuss our memories of the magazine, our desires to visit the Playboy mansion, and that some of us did actually read the articles as well!

We then welcome author Patty Farmer to the show to discuss her new book, Playboy Laughs: The Comedy, Comedians, and Cartoons of Playboy.

Playboy Laughs invites readers onto the sets of the organization’s groundbreaking TV shows, Playboy Penthouse and Playboy After Dark. These popular variety series brought top-tier comedians, impressionists, and monologists―as well as the finest musicians―into people’s homes each week.

Readers will learn how before he ever dreamed of conquering the magazine publishing world―and along the way establish a worldwide brand―Hugh Hefner harbored aspirations of making his mark in the world as a cartoonist.

Playboy Laughs delves into the darker aspects of the time as well, tackling the ways Playboy and its comedy stars helped break down social and racial barriers as well as sexual ones.

Known for her devotion to meticulous research and clear, honest storytelling, Farmer has gained the full cooperation of the Playboy organization―and Hugh Hefner himself―making this not only an entertaining read but a trustworthy history of an under-appreciated aspect of American comic culture.

Be sure to visit Patty-Farmer.com and pick up a copy of Playboy Laughs!
