Welcome to a very magic themed episode of Canned Air! We are first joined by Richard Rivera of Stabbity Bunny and James Haick of Scout Comics to help us recall some of our favorite fictional magicians in this week’s Retro Roundtable. With so many different types of magic strewn across pop culture, this was a deep well to take from. From Dr. Fate to Mary Poppins, see if we name one of your favorite!

 
We then turn our attention over to Richard and James and talk about the newly formed relationship between Richard’s Stabbity Bunny comic series with Scout ComicsStabbity Bunny is a tale of mystery and suspense steeped in horror. Innocence is pitted against a ruthless, cynical evil as Grace must overcome a foe hell-bent on gaining power and revenge. Stabbity, Grace’s toy rabbit, has been with the family for nearly 100 years. Heard over to ScoutComics.com and check out Stability Bunny, as well as a lot of other comics.
 
Then we welcome magician/ writer Nate Staniforth to the show to talk about his career and new book HERE IS REAL MAGIC: A Magicians Search for Wonder In The Modern World. HERE IS REAL MAGIC is an earnest and heartfelt memoir about rediscovering the importance of wonder in everyday life, from professional magician Nate Staniforth. Filled with humor, wisdom, and a genuine sense of adventure, HERE IS REAL MAGIC is about that single moment of wonder in a magician’s performance—that instant when someone realizes they’re seeing something magical and their eyes go wide—and the journey to find it in our daily lives. Visit NateStaniforth.com to find out more about Nate and his book, and go to RealMagicTour.com to see if Nate will be performing a magic show near you!

We are joined by pop culture royalty this week as we welcome actor and puppeteer Mike Quinn to the show! Though Mike is best known for his portrayal of Nien Nunb in the Star Wars films, his work can also be seen in The Muppets, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Toy Story 2, Jurassic Park 3, and many other films. We talk with Mike about how he started working with puppets, how he came to work with Jim Henson and the Muppets, and his mark on the Star Wars movies.

 
Having done CG work on Attack of the Clones, bringing to life many of the puppets in Return of the Jedi, and reprising Nien Nunb in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, you would be hard pressed to find anyone else who can give a more in-depth look at what happens behind the scenes on a Star Wars film. A must listen for any fan!

Merry Christmas to our loyal listeners and welcome to our special Christmas themed ‘What If…’ episode where we ask the question What If… Santa Really Existed?! 

 
We are joined by comic creator Ryan Little to help us ask what if Santa’s sleigh had crashed in Times Square and there is now undeniable proof he exists. How would the world change? How would the world leaders and governments react? How would society be impacted? With Santa’s many different abilities, he would certainty be sought after by many!
 
Then we spend the last half of the episode discussing our thoughts on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. With four rabid Star Wars fans in front of microphones, you can bet some heavy opinions are gonna be heard! Whether you loved the movie or hated it, you’ve got someone at Canned Air on your side. So throw a log on the fire, pour some egg nog, and get into the holiday spirit with us. Happy Holidays!

Welcome back to another satisfying episode of your friendly neighborhood podcast! We welcome our first in-studio guest to the show this week, John Orlando of PVDcast.com. We start the show talking about our favorite Christmas movies and specials in the Retro Roundtable. This list isn’t going to sing praises to the same old movies everyone talks about. No, we list some of the most unconventional and rarely seen movies and specials. From He-man, The Simpsons, to a man with scissor hands, we show you how to have a holiday movie night the right way, the Canned Air way!

 
Then we talk with John Orlando about his show, PVDcast! Having just celebrated 5 years of his show, John shares some of his most incredible moments creating his show, his career as a wrestling ring announcer, and his inspiration behind becoming a podcaster.

We welcome DaiQuan Cain to the show this week as we first talk about and celebrate the greatness that Harrison Ford is! He’s stared in some of the best movies ever, brought to life Han Solo, and walked away from 2 plain crashes. If that doesn’t constitute a badass, then I don’t want to know what does.
 
We then talk with DaiQuan about his Kickstarter running for his comic The Silent Descendants, running on Kickstarter until January 6th. Following a hometown tragedy, a grieving family and their friends seek vigilante justice after several of them gain mystical abilities.

    We welcome comic creators James Roche and Daniel Farrand to the show this week to first help us remember and celebrate Toys-R-Us in this weeks Retro Roundtable. With the recent news of the company going bankrupt, it’s hard to look back at our experiences with the store and not shed a tear.

    Then we turn our full attention to Daniel and James to talk about The 4th Monkey: An Anthology for Awareness, running on Kickstarter until October 15th.

We welcome Ryan Little, creator of the comic series Lonesomes, back to the show to first help us celebrate Mark Hamill in this week’s Retro Roundtable. Mark recently received the news that he’d be receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2018, and we here at Canned Air say, “It’s about time!” He has defined, and redefined, some of the most iconic characters that pop culture has ever seen. Come in and help us celebrate the man, the myth, the legend, Mark Hamill!

Then we turn our attention to Ryan Little to discuss his new comic starting on Kickstarter July 11th, Prometheus. You've heard the legend of Prometheus before; the titan who stole the flame of knowledge from the gods and gave it to mortal man, allowing us to grow and thrive.

For his trespass he was locked away to an eternal punishment at the hands of "The Eagle", a creature of Olympus that would make sure humanity's martyr would suffer for all time. Soon Prometheus faded from fact to fiction to legend, but he never a gave up on us.

The story begins with a battered Prometheus mysteriously liberated from his captivity and dying to see what mankind has made the knowledge he's suffered so long for. And what did he find? Our modern world of nonstop pop culture, rampant anti-intellectualism, and a burgeoning classism. One thing became abundantly clear through the noise of humanity's struggles: someone has stolen the flame of knowledge. And now he's going to get it back.

Be sure to check out the Kickstarter and throw some support toward this project!
