Otakon 2017 — A Capital Idea

I wouldn’t really think a convention like Otakon would have to go through “growing pains,” as it’s been around for over 20 years now. But that’s the situation we find ourselves in going forward.

This was the first year of Otakon’s new/temporary home in Washington, DC, until the situation is ironed out with Baltimore. They’ve taken up refuge in the Walter E. Washington convention center, right in the heart of the capital itself. The fandom waited with baited breath, wondering how well (or terribly) the new location would go, and how long (if at all) it would take people to yearn for the halcyon days of Baltimore.

Episode 353 : It’s Not That Is It? Because It’s Not.
