The crew and fans of the DARK DISCUSSIONS podcast get ready to see THE MEG at the Regal Cinemas Waterford 9 in Waterford, CT at our annual meet-up in August of 2018. From left: co-host Abe, listener Kevin, listener Leo Pond (also host of THE DORKENING podcast), co-host Eric, co-host Phil, me, listener Pam and co-host Mike.
Wanna watch a movie and attend a taping of Dark Discussions? Now’s your chance! The crew—myself, Phil, Mike, Abe, and Eric—will be in Mystic, Connecticut, once again this summer for our annual meet-up.
The DD crew and listeners kick off the weekend in true film-lover’s style at Mystic Pizza in Mystic, CT, at our annual meet-up, August, 2018. Counter-clockwise, from front left: co-host Eric, co-host Abe, me, listener Leo Pond, co-host of THE DORKENING podcast, co-host Mike, listener Kevin, and co-host Phil.
The weekend almost always kicks off with a dinner at Mystic Pizza (yes, of film fame). We see our movie the next day, and sometimes there are other activities in between or on the Sunday. This time around we’re hoping our film will be Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but what we see depends on what’s playing nearby. (Last year, for example, we were hoping to cover Searching, but the movie’s release date was delayed, so we saw The Meg instead. You can listen to that episode—taped with a couple of our fans at a Panera Bread—here: http://www.darkdiscussions.com/Pages/podcast_351.html )
The DD crew records a bonus episode Sunday afternoon at our annual meet-up in August of 2018. From left, me and co-hosts Phil, Abe, and Mike.
Last year a few of our fans joined us as well, and it was a blast. For more details, reach out to me through my Contact Page.
Hope to see you there! Here are a few other photos from the weekend.

When eating at Mystic Pizza, it’s always a good idea to stick with the classics to get the authentic taste! We got a cheese and a pepperoni.
How cool is this Dark Discussions shirt? Co-host Mike had one for each of us!
The shirt was even MORE COOL when I saw what was on the back!

I know, this shot’s bizarre, but here we all are around an outdoor table space at a Panera Bread following the movie.
