BlastCast: Rapid Fire Fandom Fridays Vol. 8 switches things up as Sophie and Phil from Bright Tree Radio take over to host the episode and put Bryan and Shelby in the question seat. Bryan discusses his fandom of The Dark Tower book series, and Sophie talks about her Adventure Time fandom. As usual, they compare those subjects with Star Wars which makes for an interesting discussion.
