Welcome to another episode of your favorite comics and pop culture podcast! This week we welcome writer Cody Sousa to first help us look back into pop culture history in the Retro Roundtable. This week in 1982, Late Night with David Letterman first premiered, so we talk about all of our favorite late night talk shows. We cover some of Letterman’s most memorable moments, the war for 11:30 pm between Jay Leno and Conan, and remember some of the musicians who played sidekick to our late night comedians. 
 
Then we turn our attention to Cody to discuss his comic, Sonatas. Mysterious voices lure a man back to his hometown to visit an abandoned house that he used to frequent as a child. But as he journeys through his old hangout, he encounters a supernatural presence that forces him to face his past and his darkest fears.

What If… Science Fiction Inspired Technology? Well of course it did, but to what extent? We welcome Greg Smith to the show this week to help us look at some of the items we use in our day to day lives and see if their origins are rooted in science fiction. Automatic doors, cell phones, smart watches, what would have they evolved to without sic-fi to help along the designs? What kind of inventions can we expect tomorrow that are inspired from the science fiction we have today? We tackle these questions and more. Let us know if we missed something on Twitter!

We welcome film makers Dorian Weinzimmer and Brant McCrea to the show to first help us remember some of the cities across pop culture who have met their demise in this weeks Retro Roundtable. We’ve watched for years as cinema has destroyed some of the largest cities around the world, and even some places that only exist in fiction. Come see if we name the first city to come to your mind!

Then we turn our attention over to Dorian and Brant to talk about their film, Chicago Rot. After years of rotting in Joliet, Les, a wrongfully imprisoned street legend known as "The Ghoul," is released into a mad search through Chicago's back alleys for the man who slaughtered his mother and robbed him of his soul.
Aided by enigmatic benefactors, he must delve beneath the city into a modern labyrinth of gutters whose tendrils have grown deep while he was gone.

What unfolds is a desperate tale of brute force tragedy set in the supernatural underworld of Chicago, where heroes are reduced to horror-shows, villains dream of their own demise, and good and evil prove to be antiquated concepts.

This is a movie like non other and provides a truly original experience. Be sure to check out the film at ChicagoRot.com!

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!

Happy Holidays and welcome to another Christmas themed episode of Canned Air! We are joined by comic creator Wes Locher to first help us list off some of our most memorable Christmas gifts in this week’s Retro Roundtable.

Let us know on Twitter what your most memorable gift was!
 
Then we turn our attention to Wes and talk about his comic Unit 44! Agents Gibson and Hatch forget to pay the rent on the facility's off-site storage unit, and the secret contents are sold to a couple of backwoods rednecks at a public auction. Now an alien invasion threatens planet Earth, and the agents will have to recover an item from the locker if they have any hope of stopping the extraterrestrial threat.
