HTP Episode 113 – Jarrod Alberich Returns!

Jarrod Alberich comes back to Hungry Trilobyte (after discussing James Bond in another episode). Today he adds his perspective to our discussion of the connection between fandom and mental health. Jarrod has taught leadership courses in which the concept of Emotional Intelligence is a main topic. He and I take that and apply it to internet culture as a whole.

HTP Episode 112 – Bekah George

Bekah George is a life coach and therapist.  She comes to Hungry Trilobyte to share her experience with mental health care at Shear Visions Coaching.  She and I get into the specifics of why it is so difficult to discuss mental health care in our culture, and how we can make it easier to approach care.  We get into the specifics of what separates a therapist from a coach, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of taking a faith-based approach.

The chat I had with Bekah is the first part of a series I’m calling #Fans4Healing.  This is a project that examines how living in a fandom has helped people with depression, anxiety, and other mental health struggles.

HTP Episode 111 – Jason Pollock

Jason Pollock, host of the It’s Me Jason podcast, gets together with me to swap stories of how fandom has built its own cultures. He has some great insights into stand-up, and even rolled one of his bits into a coloring book titled “The Fly That Refused to Die“. When we hit talk of MST3K, I recount to him the story of how Jackey Raye Neyman Jones rediscovered Manos (as she tells in her book) and I challenge Jason to watch Manos Returns, directed by Tonjia Atomic.

HTP Episode 108 – Michael Lloyd

Michael Lloyd is a fresh actor who loves podcasting and has a lot of great views on fandom. He schools me on why he loves horror (and I’m a horror dummy) and we get to compare it to Star Wars and Marvel fandoms. On a more critical note, we get to compare how different fandoms respond to an excess of sequels and reboots.

Laura Banks is known to Trek fans as the Augment navigator Wajahut in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, she and I discuss her experiences on set, what the fandom means to her, and how her character was developed in Trek fiction.  Specifically, I mention To Reign in Hell by Greg Cox. I also compare her account of the experience with what George Takei said in his book To the Stars.

We also venture into more real-world topics.  Recently, she was interviewed for an independent film about the legendary movie year that was 1982, as well as a book about the history of the development of Star Trek II.  She has a new movie called No Vacancy with Sean Young.  Laura shares her experience as an improv and stand-up talent, as well as a podcaster with a specialty in astrology.

There’s also a really fun side-chat about how film fanatics were able to research movies in the VHS era, compared to the DVD and streaming eras.
