Issue 167 – The Legend of Bold Riley & Tech Fail

Greetings Programs! We curse the technology gods as we lose Scott’s interview with Stephen Gyllenhaal and Joel David Moore as they talk about Grassroots. Sorry folks. But please, it’s a great film and we urge you to catch the film, opening 6/29 at the Fox Tower in Portland. What do we get this week? A big slice of awesome with Leia Weathington and her debut book The Legend of Bold Riley. It’s a truly great discussion on heroism, cultural tropes, and the fear of jumping in head first. Be sure to say hi and buy her book this Saturday at Bridge City Comics from 6pm to 9pm. Thanks all. We’ll chat next week, with 100% more show!
