Every week, Joel sits down with a guest (or two) to chat about what has been consumed in the realms of sci-fi and fantasy movies, television, books and games.
The show name, The Citadel Cafe, came from wanting to communicate the casual nature of the show – like sitting down and chatting at a cafe – as well as evoking a bit of the worlds we love in both sci-fi an fantasy. As it turns out, giving a nod to the historic Citadel Hill in the shows home town of Halifax, Nova Scotia, worked out on all fronts!
The Citadel Cafe was pioneered by Joel, Paton and Chad. Joel still hosts and produces the show, but Paton and Chad have produced minions, and moved on to devote time to their families. Now, The Citadel Cafe welcomes regular rotating co-hosts and guests who share their unique takes on their favourite entertainment genres.
