Episode 37 – San Diego Comic Con 2012 Survival Guide

It’s almost here!  We’re just over two weeks away from international Geek Mecca, San Diego Comic Con 2012!  The panels, the parties, the comics, THE SWAG!!!  We can’t wait to get out on that show floor and tear it… oh yeah, we weren’t able to get passes this year.  BUT WAIT!  We know people who did!  Join us this week as we are joined once again by The David, our Comic Con guru, as well as the oft mentioned “The Girlfriend” (aka Amanda) as we discuss some tips and tricks for surviving four days at SDCC, both inside and out.  Gas up the Batmobile, pack extra underoos, and watch out for hobos (true story) as we prepare for four days of awesome geekdom on a whole new episode of Monkey in the Cage.

  1. I think the girlfriend guest (Amanda) was vivacious and full of life. Love the bubbly personality. She’s a keeper on the show. : )
