Today's show comes to us from the Highlander Worldwide Gathering 10 Convention held this past weekend in Los Angeles. This celebration of 25 years of Highlander brought together the community of fans, cast and crew.
The guests were fantastic and the panels and workshops interesting and exciting. A time of old friends, reminiscences and bittersweet memories. The Peace Fund would like to thank Carmel Macpherson - a portion of the proceeds from the event paid for The Peace Fund to ship books to kids affected by the hurricanes in Houston and Miami.
Neo Edmund, Paul Roberts and Kevin Otte joined Adrian and Ethan for the first part of our show.
Neo Edmund is an actor/writer/producer many of you know from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Power Rangers Zeo and Alpha Huntress.
Paul Roberts and Kevin Otte are with the organization Ghost Watch Paranormal, a group of paranormal researchers in Los Angeles sharing photos and experiences from their investigations.
The conversation touched on the recent hurricanes that touched the lives of many children in the Southeast, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean islands.
While waiting for Adrian to return from a panel, Ethan took a few moments to talk with Kevin Reitzel and Norman Lao of Blood of Kings, a Highlander Podcast. BLOOD OF KINGS is the Fandom Podcast Network show dedicated to exploring the Highlander fandom; one movie, one television episode, one novel, one game and one aspect of the Highlander universe at a time.
Elizabeth Gracen and John Bierly join Ethan and Adrian in the second half of the show. You all know Elizabeth Gracen as "Amanda Darieux" on Highlander: The Series and Highlander: The Raven. Some of her other work includes Coherence, War of the Worlds: Goliath and Suspense, a revival of the classic 1940s-1950s television and radio anthology series, with different stories of mystery and the macabre every week. She has now established her own publishing and film production company.
Elizabeth is wonderful supporter of The Peace Fund and has joined us in our Interactive Storytelling Initiative, bringing a love of reading to young children in Los Angeles.
All of our listeners know the intrepid John Bierly who has brought us amazing stories about our Peace Fund Heroes of the Week, young people who have done amazing things in their communities to make a difference in the lives of others less fortunate.
Kimberly O'Keefe and Chad Hawthorne bring us our Peace Fund Hero of the Week segment where we learn a little about Chad, our latest addition to the team.
