About The Show Episodes/Segments
Bob Nelson, or “The Bobisodes”
He’s just plain crazy. Filmmaker, poet, author, publisher, former coffee house owner, Internet radio voice since 1999, event organizer, director of a book festival and a writer’s conference and general all around annoyance, Bob Nelson leverages his ADD as best he can to run a non profit (Anthology, inc.), Brick Cave Media and Proxima Emporium while simultaneously providing logistical support to super heroes in his home of Mesa, AZ.
He doesn’t think he’s won any awards, at least none that he can remember- well, except that the poetry slam he founded won Best Poetry Event in Phoenix in 2002- but that was in spite of him he suspects. We’d link to his website, but he spends all his time working on this one, so we’ll just say – welcome to Bob’s website.
