Originally written for Fandom Following.
I used to be a John Campea fan. I listened to his podcast when it was AMC Movie Talk, I cried with him when he quit to do something else, and I even made the switch when the crew moved to Collider. I may have put money into his Kickstarter. I put a good bit of thought into rolling with him when he decided to do his own thing whilst also covering San Diego Comic Con, because I liked John Campea’s opinions about films and television. I also agreed heavily with something that he had once said about fandom.
