Thoughts from your host…


Dearly Beloved –

We gather here today to pay respects to the podcast segment “Come Talk to Me”. It was born in the spring of 2010, and passed away peacefully in the spring of 2015. It is survived by its host, Ryan Michael McNeil

Jokes aside, as much as I loved reading notes, tweets, and comments from you fine folks on-air, the truth of the matter was that the feedback was dwindling, and my audience is too small to support such a feature. The big shows might get comments in the dozens or hundreds – I usually get a handful, and even at that it usually requires several prompts on social media. So while I’m always around to interact with my meagre listenership, I’m going to leave that off air for the foreseeable future.

In the meantime, we have a very cheerful and intelligent guest lined up for this new episode. Considering that I’ve only been following her work for a few months, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. So when the tape started rolling and I could hear that she was bringing the goods, I considered myself one lucky host!

There’s been a lot of great discussion happening on the show in 2015…both for bad films and good. The way this charming lass was able to keep the trend going really did make my day!

That and Daredevil, lots of Daredevil…


Thanks for tuning into episode one-hundred-thirty-five.
