    There's a part of me that wonders if Grill is more deserving of it's own podcast that Funpub is.. but maybe i'm either very cynical about Botcon matters (especially this year) or just being a bit of a bitch perhaps ?

    But i'll listen with interest nonetheless.

    I always enjoy the convention prep shows; one year I'll be able to put all this advice to use.

    I also hope folks are able to enjoy themselves this weekend in spite of all the craziness surrounding Funpub lately.

    Great podcast! Thanks guys for the info. I'm actually just going to TFcon, but I feel like this was good info for all cons.

    So please do one for Tf:con?

    Oh, and one question- can you/should you haggle with the actual "companies" in the dealer room?

    Thanks!

    I figured you would, considering you did one again for Botcon, just don't get weary.

    I'm bringing some friends who aren't as imbedded into the franchise as I am, so I'm looking forward to sharing your thoughts so they can get prepped.

    Speaking of which, I really hope somebody goes to a panel & asks if Silas is gonna be a Kiss Player.


    Yup.

    Speaking of Susan B. Anthony gold coins and DART, the last time I rode the train into downtown Dallas, the ticket machine was dispensing change using those coins. Not sure if they still do. I thought it was neat at first, but after using a twenty for a ticket carrying around 18 big ass coins in my pocket all day was kind of annoying.

    Just finished:

    Thank you again for this, being my first botcon, hearing this info really helps me out, though i laughed out loud when you guys discovered about the dart train.

    Then seth mentioned thomas and mister conductor and how the little kid in my heart still thinks that way as i ride on a train and i went "aww :( " :lol 

    don't worry, i'll keep my horse and my 12 guage double barrel shotgun and my ten gallon hat at home this time, so nobody will die this time

    and i'll totally poop on a table, just for you seth

    I don't care how many BotCon preps you guys do, these things are ALWAYS fun and informative. I was busting up laughing while driving to work today listening to all of the BotCon stories. Good stuff guys.
