So I’ve been holding off on announcing this but I can’t contain how stoked I am!!!  This week we shot the first test run at‘s for the CBS!/VGS! Presents: The ComiCast and I am REALLY excited about what we’ve got cooking.  Ok sorry…I know I come in around Chapter 7 paragraph 3…at least that’s what the wife tells me 🙂

About a month or so ago I got a call from my good friend (and CBS! member) Carter Swan over at Triggerstreet.  If you don’t know about Triggerstreet check them out! ( They have been at the forefront of building an amazing online community and Carter and Dana have been doing their podcasts since back in 2007.  From doing that and getting great feedback Dana decided to build a studio in their offices…and having already done our trial run show out of there I have to say I was thoroughly impressed.  Ok so back to the call…Carter buzzed me and said “hey Ben remember when we did that radio cast with you way back when…well would you want your own show?” Um, yes please? We bounced some ideas around and then zoom off to the races!! I called up one of our other members, Alexis, since we go way back playing D&D and her knowledge of anime far surpasses mine and said “Alexis, you down to co-host?” and wallah…the ComiCast is born!!

The show is going to be live in the studio with pre-produced segments and live interviews via Skype or in-studio.  We are lining up a great kick-off show with give-aways, in-studio sword/gun fights, and lively interviews with top folks in the field! One thing I also want is to make the show an extension of this newsletter where we can spotlight creators with pages from their comics, short films both live and animated, websites, etc.  But all in all it’s going to be an extension of the party feel of CBS! as we hang in the studio, shoot the proverbial shit, and have fun!

So I’m proud to announce that CBS!/VGS!/Triggerstreet presents….THE COMICAST!!!  I’ll be producing the show and hosting it along with Alexis Earl and we’ll be taking CBS!/VGS! to the next level!!!!

know your roots
