Josh and I got together and compared notes on our Pax East experience. This podcast is the result. It’s 35 minutes long, so you can think of it as a spoiler warning without the video portion. Or the other hosts.
Sorry I didn’t have time to make a transcript, which is a common request whenever I post audio like this. If you’re of a mind to make a transcript yourself, please feel free to email me and I’ll post it so the audio-less folks can get in on the conversation.
The audio player below (assuming it shows up for you) is a WordPress plug-in and it behaves a little wonky on Chrome. If it doesn’t work for you just use this direct download link so you can listen to it on your Sony Walkman, which I guess is what you young people are using these days.
