The Ultimate Con Bag
When you go to conventions there are some basic necessities like water, snacks and phone chargers that you bring, we’re going to assume that you have all that already, but tonight we’re imagining that we can have any items from the Fandomverse in our packs to solve any problem that we can imagine, and then maybe some real world things we can do to solve the problem. Our items come from Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Stargate and even Disney Movies. Reach out to us in the comments to let us know what items you would want to bring with you and why.
If you are looking for more realistic suggestions check out last year’s SLCC survival guide, most if not all of the tips are still applicable today. https://fandompodcast.com/episode-29-how-to-survive-slcc/
You can find a series of shorter episodes for FanX at www.FandomPodcast.com/fanx16
If You’re looking for a good 20,000 mah Battery charger that won’t break the bank check out this one http://amzn.to/2bf4DVA
This week because of time constraints we didn’t share a Random Fandom but we are still taking submissions. The Random Fandom is the segment where we talk about the Fandoms that are near and dear to your heart that don’t have the largest main stream adoption. We’ve talked about childhood cartoons, books that got us reading, comics that once were and many other things that listeners have close to their heart. If you want us to share your random fandom get a message to us using the links at the bottom of this post or over on social media and we will spend some time geeking out about your favorite fandom.
