Hey there Leaders,
New idea. Actual show notes...
Strong Female Needs
Debs: English women's football team
Colleen: Sea of Tranquility
Main Feature - Conventions!
Conventions are, perhaps inexplicably, back. Those of you who follow the Strong Female Leads twitter account will know that I was down at London Film & Comic Con this weekend and it was a BLAST but there have definitely been some changes since 2019! So we were thinking - what does the future hold for this fundamental geek space?
Difference between virtual and in person
Less merch now and feeling less specialised BUT ALSO a growth in independent operators
Is there still a space for virtual cons?
Lessons learned (or not) - news in the press about Joseph Quinn
Are you going to change your behaviour around conventions going forward?
Bonus Feature - Phase 4!
Look, we bang on a lot about Marvel but perhaps you've lost track of all the telly and movies and life is short - is it worth catching up on? Can you just get the highlights?
