Episode 80 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

If you were a child or early teen in the mid 80's, then you're probably familiar with our main topic of this week's episode.

Whether you were exposed to them in their original comic, you found them via their cartoon, or their first live action film, these "heroes in a half shell" were something completely new, fun, and a bit insane.

And we loved it!!

Please enjoy as all FOUR hosts of Daydream Instruction Manual share their memories of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Episode 78 - Our Nerdy Collections

Baseball Cards, Hotwheels cars, intricate models, or action figures, a lot of us out there have some sort of collection.

It may be so large that it requires an entire room, or so small that it fits on a shelf; but either way it's a fun and interactive way to display your passion. Whether it's your favorite sports team, superhero, or pastime, a collection can bring you all sorts of fun and enjoyment.

Join us as we discuss our personal collections, what they mean to us, and pose some great questions on the idea of collections in general!

Episode 77 - David Yost at O Comic Con

As if being the partner podcast of the one and only O Comic Con wasn't cool enough, we also got the privilege of hosting several panels as well.

And this one was a doozy.

One of our fellow Daydream Instruction Manual members, Billy, has been a Power Rangers fan for as long as he can remeber and the chance to host this panel was essentially, a dream come true.

We were lucky enought to host the panel of "Billy the Blue Ranger" David Yost!!


Mr. Yost has kept busy from becoming an award winning gymnast, to being the Blue Ranger from the worldwide smash hit televison and film series "Power Rangers", to producing television shows, co-creating "Affirmative Clothing", and being an advocate for the LGBTQ community.

Mr. Yost shared great stories of being a part of the beginning of Power Rangers, what it took for him to succeed in his life, and had some truly fun and informative interactions with the audience at O Comic Con.

Please enjoy!

Episode 75 - Rob Paulsen at O Comic Con

Getting the opportunity to host a panel at O Comic Con is an absolute privilege. Having the chance to host the panel of someone like Rob Paulsen is honestly such an amazing, surreal, and humbling expereince, the only thing you can really do is sit back, be yourself and enjoy the experience.

Mr. Paulsen has a career that spans decades and houses a body of work that honestly I could spend hours typing. Voicing characters from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Jimmy Neutron, and so many more that it's honestly best if you head over to his IMDB page and check out his entire resume there.

Mr. Paulsen was such fun to be around, and interacted with everyone so genuinely and authentically, that it was honestly one of the high points of our Podcasting careers at this point.

THank you to O Comic Con for the chance to host his panel, and thank you to Mr. Rob Paulsen for being such a great speaker and guest!!

If good things come to those who wait, then this episode is going to be GREAT!! We kept missing Jesse Kiefer of the Grawlix Podcast and Tank-Zombie Studios at every turn while we were at O Comic Con!
