  1. Hello! My name is Bryn. I'm trying to get the word out about a small convention that I love called Wincon (, and I was wondering if you would consider mentioning it on your podcast?

    Wincon has been around for nine years and is hosted in a different city each year (more about our history is at We're a multi-fandom convention celebrating all aspects of geeky life, and we usually average around 100 people a year, but it can be pretty expensive to run a con with a small attendance, so we're looking to expand to around 300 people in 2015. To make sure we can afford the con next year, we've set up an Indiegogo campaign ( so people can order their tickets in advance (a basic weekend pass is $55) and also get other great fandomy perks for other donations. The campaign is running until Jan 5th, but if we don't make our goal, then the convention will be cancelled and all payments/donations will be refunded.

    Please let me know what options are available to get the word out to more geeks and fangirls/fanboys :) Thank you for your time.
