WANC 21: The Dragoncon Experience

The WANCers make their triumphant return from Dragoncon. In this episode Mike and Jason discuss their experiences from Dragoncon. For extra fun in this episode, Mike is hopped up on oxycodone. Not too surprisingly, he doesn't sound much different. It just required more editing during the parts where he would drool and stare into the distance at the pretty lights. So strap on your headphones and make sure you've got your tickets before you press play, 'cause your going to Dragoncon. In this episode we discuss:
