Episode 39 – Conventional Thinking

Iain has big plans for the first Giant Brain convention but Jamie is not so sure. Luckily our convention correspondent Mark Cooke is back from Essen with lots of excellent advice. This episode the team cover abuse allegations, industry deaths, awards and more. Iain’s been working on something in the basement and it proves very useful when getting to the core of what convention organisation is all about. No interns were harmed in the making of this episode.
