Felicia Day & Ryan Copple – Building an Alien Nation

At the forefront of fandom and geek culture, are the brilliant minds of Felicia Day and Ryan Copple. Felicia — a long-time actor and founder of Geek & Sundry — is an internet and pop culture original, with hear early work, The Guild, recently becoming a part of the Smithsonian, and numerous roles in works like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Mystery Science Theater 3000 and more. Ryan has worked as a producer and writer on a slew of Geek & Sundry projects, and works like Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, as well as the duo’s most recent creation, Voyage to the Stars, a new multi-platform improvisational space comedy podcast (that is a mouthful) — an experiment in and of itself within an already relatively new form of storytelling. On this episode of The Crush, the two discuss everything from the importance of interpersonal chemistry, to convincing others of their visions, to feeling alienated — all with a smile and passion.
