GCP: 39: Norwescon - Cajun and The Rev
The first episode in our series recorded at Norwescon 38. In this episode The Reverend EnFuego (from the BJ Shea Morning Experience), Cajun the force behind Dethcon, and Brogan introduce Scott to the convention. Brogan, The Rev, and Cajun have been attending Norwescon for close to two decades. This was the first time for Scott.
Brogan and Cajun discuss Dethcon, the party group that supports the convention(not represented by the convention), and for the last 12 years have put on an after-hours room party at the con. The hosts of the party use their own money to provide a place for people from the panels to relax after, have a drink, and enjoy the convention. The party this year included Nerd Core hip hop and a burlesque show.
They also discuss the numerous reasons to attend Norwescon, from the daily activities to the interesting people that are on the panels. They have live music and even games for the kids. They run Thursday – Sunday events happening from 10 am – midnight. This year’s guest of honor was George R.R. Martin, author and co-executive producer of the HBO show, Game of Thrones.
