Interloper Radio, formerly Tales of the Con Posts

Featured Post

“Tales of the Con” is now “Interloper Radio”

Back when we started Tales of the Con we had a plan of traveling to and covering every comiccon and convention we could. The logistics and costs behind constant convention coverage just weren’t feasible for us. We needed something to fill the content gap between the cons, and that led us to creating our podcast. The podcast quickly outgrew the rest of our site and content. The podcast also evolved to be about a lot more than just conventions. It’s a sometimes filthy, comedy-focused podcast that discusses all facets of nerd culture, pop culture, video games, and real-life stories. We’re proud of it.

Today we announce that Tales of the Con is now going to focus on podcasting with a new name: Interloper Radio. We don’t fit into any one category or subject and we like to talk about whatever we want. Our main podcast will be here with the new name, and our other shows in development such as the Odd Pod will continue. Fred, Chris, Alex the Human, Laura, and Alex Rudolph are still involved. If Covid-19 ever goes away and conventions come back we’ll probably still check them out too. No topic is off-limits.

tl:dr we changed our name cuz we ain’t just about cons.

The Odd Pod – Ep. 1 : The era of the remake

The Odd Pod is our newest podcast starring Alex Rudolph from 6 Shooter Comics. A monthly deep dive into nerd life and nostalgia. Join hosts Chris, Red, and Alex the-Not-So-Human with their rotating crew of misfits and guest stars while they walk on the weird side. Mature language and salty ‘tudes may be present as we rock the pod and keep it odd.

In this pilot episode we go down a nostalgia path and discuss our favorite 80s and 90s shows and their “new” versions. Thundercats, Powerpuff Girls, She-Ra, Sabrina, Archie, etc. Star Wars the old republic cinematics are better than the sequel trilogy. We also get into our guilty pleasure shows… “These characters are dumb…” “but it satisfies something in your heart.”

TOTC Podcast Ep. 147 – Space ghost incestuous love, cloning yourself, and demigod animal abuse.

In one of our silliest episodes in a while, Fred and Chris discuss space ghost loving, cloning yourself for love (and combat), and sacrificing villagers for power in our favorite games. These topics and more!

Today’s episode is brought to you by The Verde Valley Comic Expo – Saturday March 21st 2020 from 10am to 5pm at the Rec Center in Cottonwood Arizona.
