What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
After hosting fan podcasts for several years, I thought I'd share my experience for others to learn from. I also wanted to address some problems I see with the current state of entertainment criticism.
"Bobby's Always Here"
Bobby Hawke called in with a Once Upon A Time theory as “Robert From Bradenton” a few months after we started the show in 2013. We loved Bobby’s voicemails so much we gave him “pride of place” in our Feedback section. For the majority of the 500+ podcast episodes we produced, Bobby’s voicemail was the first voicemail we played.
Bobby quickly became one of our most prolific contributors, there in the chat room for every live stream, sending in a voicemail ten minutes before we went live, and creating unique content we never asked for and always loved.
Bobby Hawke joins us for our panel at Tampa Bay Comicon in August 2016.
We got along with Bobby so well, we eventually handed him the reins to our first podcast, Greetings From Storybrooke, after we stepped away for reasons I’ll discuss later. He even appeared with us at a live Legends of Gotham panel in Tampa Bay, near Bradenton. Bobby was always there with support and encouragement. His presence made our podcasts better. When we’d set up to go live, we’d invariably open the chat room and have this exchange:
Bill: Well, Bobby’s here.
Anne Marie: Bobby’s always here.

Bobby’s always here, and I hope he always will be. I don’t get to talk to Bobby as often as I’d like these days, but we’re still tight. Our kids have met. I know that, whenever I’m hatching my next creative project, I can always depend on Bobby to participate, or at least cheer me on. I can count on Bobby Hawke.
