Speakin’ Geek at Leakycon 2017 The Sequel

After last week's episode with the special guests this week I met with some of the heroes of Leakycon, the purveyors of magical goodies. I chatted with several of the retailers at the stalls and what I came away from each interview was that they are all highly enthused fans of Harry Potter and the world he lives in.

Speakin’ Geek at Leakycon 2017

I was at this years Leakycon because lucky me it was held here in Ireland at Citywest Hotel. I met a ton of incredibly passionate fans, met some idols of mine, and I sat down with some incredible talent including Evanna Lynch, Jim Cornish, and Dan Fogler. The interviews were fantastic, a lot of fun, I learned a lot, and I bonded with Evanna Lynch over Prince of Persia,( yes she's that cool). 

This is easily one of the fun episodes, and I hope you enjoy it. If you enjoyed it be sure to like, favourite, tweet, do all the social media shenanigans and if  I met you at Leakycon let me know how the long magical weekend treated you when we parted ways.

Speakin’ Geek & That God Damn Dark Tower

This week on Speakin' Geek Graham and Steve sit down and stir the shit with Stephen King's latest film adaptation The Dark Tower. Starring Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, and newcomer Tom Taylor this adaptation has been over a decade in the making. There's been, JJ Abrams and his Marvel Comics inspired version, then came Ron Howard and his man Akiva Goldman who were going to create a series. They eventually went on to be a part of the team that would make the film audiences were "treated" to. 

With two different perspectives, a lover of the book, and a lover of fantasy there were hopes for The Dark Tower. Sadly they were dashed, and now we get to listen to two relatively young men grumble like old people.

Stay tuned for the next episode of Speakin' Geek and if you enjoyed this episode be sure and leave a rating on Itunes, good or bad. We love any human interaction; we're very lonely.

Speakin’ Geek Dublin Comic Con ‘17 Special

On this episode of Speakin' Geek the lads are away but Graham was lucky enough to attend Dublin Comic Con this past weekend so we have a bunch of fun interviews with some incredible talent. 

Graham got to talk about Declan Shalvey and Philip Barrett about their new title Savage Town, a brutal look at crime in Limerick City. It's a brutally poignant comic depicting life in Limerick City and it's a comic everyone should check out.

Graham chatted with Tracy Sayers about her work on Freya her mythic adventure story about a faerie/human hybrid. Her origins, her other work on sites like Geek Ireland and discussed her appreciation of the talent of the young artist she has with her.

Also, Graham sat down with Gareth Luby about his incredible work, reminiscent of legendary artist Todd Nauck. They talk about his history with hair and Graham sadly goes off on a ridiculous tangent, but don't worry he reigns it in.

Finally, Graham reunites with Paddy Lennon famed author of the Flare series as they reminisce about how Graham and Paddy have discussed this series through every year of its inception. Not only that Paddy talks about his love for action figures and how his panel on them became the number. 2 thing to do at Dublin Comic Con 2017. Check out all the links below to check out their work and be sure to spread the love for Irish born talent. Stay tuned for next episode when Steve and Graham bring down the Dark Tower.
