“I understand we’re all shitting for the fun of shitting…”

Bill Doran of Punished Props (and our last few Dragon*Con panels) joins Brandon, Josh, Eric, Tom, Jen and his friendly rival Harrison for a rowdy group discussion about this year’s PAX East and SwarmCon highlights. Then, after the break, the gang dives into the end of Homestuck, Nintendo’s E3/Zelda/NX bombshell, and Alex St. John’s embarrassing baby tantrum aimed at “wage slaves” and “mouse pushers”.

Plus: a couple of listener emails!

“Jump Kick Punch: What else are you gonna do?”

It’s our second LIVE Dragon*Con panel! Professional thing-makers Harrison Krix (of Volpin Props) and Bill Doran (of Punished Props) join Brandon, Eric, Josh and Tom for a public discussion about propmaking, entrepreneurship, trust issues and becoming absolute best friends with your personal heroes. Then, after the panel, join an after party at Eric’s house as some friends both old and new sum up this year’s convention highlights.
