SHareCon Group Interviews

In our previous episode we talked about the panels, vids, and games at SHareCon 2019. But what was it like to just sit in the main convention room, listening to fans chat with each other about Starsky & Hutch? To capture that atmosphere, we did four small group interviews, covering everything from fandom friendship to the fascinating features of PMG’s face.

Group 1: Carmen, Asha, Maria Priest
Group 2: Lorraine, Anachron, Suzan Lovett
Group 3: Elaine, Dawnwind, Silver Chipmunk, Kat
Group 4: Keri T, Hardboiledbaby, MatSir

Starsky is Driving. Hutch is Turned On.

Little details, lines of dialogue, and whole scenes get lost in the journey from script to finished episode. We pour over the script for Gillian, discuss the changes, and act out the missing scenes. Listen and be shocked by how much worse some of the dialogue was in the script! And then be delighted by some suggestive screen direction!

This was our favorite screen direction from the Gillian script.

It’s that time again: when we take a break from talking about Starsky & Hutch and instead try drinks we’ve never had before and review them! Also, we still talk about Starsky & Hutch quite a bit. Hutch would be into kombucha, right?

In this episode we try two traditional kombuchas and four soda-kombucha fusions.

Episode 19: Sharecon (part 2): The People of SHarecon!

What do all SHareCon attendees have in common? A love of Starsky and Hutch, and a desire to befriend other fans. Other than that, the differences abound! We set up a microphone at SHareCon and interviewed a flock of fans: fans from the original broadcast run, new fans just discovering the show, long-time con-goers, first-time con-goers, cosplayers, artists, vidders, readers, writers, and editors!
