~~ TURBULENT TIMES ~~

We do try our best to keep our political leanings or opinions out of the show, as we find that once you are in the thick of a busy convention, those opinions do go mostly by the wayside as people dive into their fandoms with gusto. However, with recent events in the US political landscape, it can’t be avoided that new policies could make an significant impact on the shows we love.

Could artists, writers and creatives, especially those based outside of the US, make the decision not to make the journey as a protest to the current administration? More alarmingly, could some of those creatives be actively denied entry into the country, because of their home country? Alyssa and Leonard will be looking into the issues raised, as well as talking about the recent announcements from Comic-Con International. Hope you can join us!
