We delve into nerd culture with Pete Kilmer, Q95 personality and owner of Downtown Comics, and Gregg Nowling, movie prop collector and creator. We talk Marvel Universe, comic books, Indiana Jones, and how one gets started in making replica props for a living (hint, an ex-wife plays a major role in this story and no punches are pulled).
We also reveal that Hammer has never seen a single film from a certain major movie franchise centered around Harrison Ford, yet instantly recognizes Pee Wee’s bike from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure.
We also discuss the many cons that make up our lives these days (Comic Con, Indy Pop Con, Gen Con, and many more cons).
