Mister-Sam Shearon rounds out my team for iNTO THE FRAY. He encouraged me throughout the process of creating the show and is also the brainchild behind my logos, artwork and upcoming merchandise. I am lucky to call him a friend as well as a colleague and will be joining us on our many adventures down the rabbit hole. He has had many interesting personal experiences, a few of which we touch on in this episode. P.S. Send me the emails about your anomalous, large insect sightings. You’ll understand why later. But first, Ryan and I discuss big Interstellar news, and then touch on a flying humanoid report out of PA.
Sam Shearon (born 15 March 1978), also known under the pseudonym Mister-Sam and credited as published also sometimes as Mister Sam Shearon is an English dark artist born in Liverpool, England.
