Otakon 2018 — And We Were So Optimistic, Too

Man, listening to the last couple of episodes before the trip to Otakon are rather jarring in hindsight, don’t you think? I couldn’t quite explain it, personally, regardless of how much I look back on it, but I was jacked for Otakon more so than prior years.
