EPISODE 031 - Scott Loxley, 501st Legion Hero

Our guest this week is a man who exemplifies the 501st Legion's catch phrase, "The bad guys who do good".  Mr Scott Loxley recently completed a 15,000km trek around Australia to raise over $100,000 for the Monash Children's Hospital, and he did it all in his Stormtrooper armor.  We sat down to chat with Mr. Loxley about his hardships & adventures along the way, and used our Mind Probe to get to know him better as a Star Wars fan.

And even though Scott is back from his adventure, there is still time to donate to the Monash Children's Hospital.  Please send them a few dollars if you can by visiting

Also in this episode, Dan plays the role of psychologist to dissect Tims aversion to spoilers (and does so without letting any spoilers slip).  And speaking of spoilers, we tease a special two part episode of The Expanded Spoilerverse coming soon!

EPISODE 030 - Michael Corley, from The Vox Box Star Wars Comic Book Podcast

We here at The Expanded Fandomverse Podcast love not just producing Star Wars themed podcasts, but also listening to Star Wars themed podcasts!  We recently stumbled upon the new show, The Vox Box Star Wars Comic Book Podcast, and instantly fell in love with it!  So much so, they we knew we had to have it's creator, Michael Corley, on the show right away!

Michael joins us this week to talk about not just his show, by his work as a storyteller, a voice actor, a magician and his background in radio.  We then bring The Trench Run out of retirement and quiz Michael all about the classic Star Wars comics from Marvel Comics published in the 1970's and 80's.

This week we also chat about some recent Star Wars news, and just a warning, we get a little more into spoiler territory then we normally do.  Nothing major.  Nothing about the storyline of The Force Awakens, just  a few tidbits from the newest Star Wars comics (which are part of the canon now, and MAY later affect the films), and we discuss an image from Mexico that is making the rounds.  And finally, Jason and Tim compare stories about their time inside the plastic pants of a Stormtrooper costume, and some recent adventures they've had both had as TKs.

Show Outline…
Intro - 00:42
News - 3:19
Interview - 18:12
Trench Run - 49:14
Ending - 59:33
