Missing Con? Watch Us Talk About It
Heidi MacDonald wrote about the economic effects of a year without conventions. There have been no big shows since C2E2 in Chicago at the end of February, and everything else has been cancelled (except for ReedPop’s New York show in October, but I can’t see that happening).
Heidi also does a convention-based podcast called “Women in a Hotel Room” that I’ve been part of. The most recent were two C2E2 episodes, found in that link above, and we also had a great chat at SPX last year.
Our latest get-together took place on video chat last night, as I, Heidi, Brigid Alverson, Deb Aoki, and special guest Leonard Sultana all talked about what we were missing and some of our history with the San Diego Comic-Con. We’re live streaming a second part tomorrow night (Saturday, July 25, 6 PM Eastern time) if you want to watch. Here’s the recording of last night:
Update: And part two is now available, with special guests John Bivens and Henry Barajas.
