Nov. 10, 2016: EBASS/B.J. Knapp/Everyone's Hero Cosplay/Super Megafest, Part 3

Hailey Magee and Hannah Siglin
Hailey Magee makes her return for the monthly EBASS segment, along with singer-songwriter Hannah Siglin. We talk about music videos, the different options out there, and what to consider before shelling out the cash. There's so many ways to go about it, especially in a city like Boston.
Hannah shares some live acoustic tunes, what it's like transitioning from the state of Washington to Boston, and her family's musical background.

Author B.J. Knapp talks about her new book, "Beside the Music," a tale of an aging rock band and their decision to record a new album in the home of a very devoted fan. Suffice to say, not all sides are in agreement, and hilarity ensues. B.J.'s a diehard music fan herself, and her own love of rock plays a role in the story.

Cosplay artist Everyone's Hero Skypes in to share the facts on the 40 costumes he's made since joining the cosplay community two and a half years ago. From Nick Fury to Batman, he has a wide array of personas that he's adopted, learning as he goes and doing a lot with sometimes limited resources. He's gotten to know so many cosplayers, and he has some great stories to share.

BONUS: We've got Part 3 of the Blackout Bootleg series from Super Megafest! Author Blake Renworth talks about her debut book, "The Exiled Seven," as well as her own work as an editor. Stacey Longo has a slew of titles to her name, including several collections and her first book, "Ordinary Boy." She and Max talk about her journalism background, and if the characters that she's met while on the beat made their way into her stories.
