Movie Mazz is co-hosting a podcast! This makes her orange with joy!
Australia's premiere geek event - the Supanova Pop Culture Expo - kicks off at the RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane tomorrow afternoon. Running until Sunday, there's a massive line-up of pop culture personalities appearing at the convention including Val Kilmer (Batman Forever, Top Gun), Christopher Lloyd (Back To The Future), Billy Boyd (The Lord Of The Rings trilogy), Colin Morgan (Merlin), Julie Benz (Dexter, Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Renee O'Connor (Xena), Evanna Lynch (Harry Potter franchise) and many more.
Also broadcasting from the event is film and pop culture internet radio show The Reel Thing. Usually recorded in Melbourne, host Paul Turner will air the show live from the event at booth 76. I will be co-hosting the podcast which will include interviews with Michael Parks from Kevin Smith's Red State, Claudia Wells from Back To The Future and Michael Gross Family Ties.
There will be three recordings of the podcasts on Saturday and another three on Sunday and Turner says it's a great opportunity for the Supanova crowd to ``have a chat.''
"We're going to have some fun, talk to some cool people and get the crowd involved,'' he says.
"We want the audience to be able to ask some questions of our guests and there will be prizes, quizzes and give aways too.''
Of all the talent to be interviewed, with more acts yet to be announced, Turner says Parks will be a fascinating guest.
"He used to sing with Johnny Cash and he's done so many things people don't know about,'' he says.
"I love the work he's done with Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez as Earl McGraw.
"He died in the first movie they did together but has come back with a role in six more.''
