We have covered a lot on this Dog Days of Podcasting stretch, and Tee has talked a bit about putting the readers first. And you should. There are times, however, when it’s not about the readers or the fans. Personal space. Public reputation. Sometimes, it is all about you. How do you handle it?
Back from the 2017 Murder As You Like It Conference, Tee brings his experiences at different events to the Dog Days of Podcasting just to remind writers (and fans, on the rare occasion) that the world does not necessarily revolve around you, even when you are keynote speakers or Guests of Honor.
A special episode (dropped into the Shared Desk feed via the Geek Wolfpack Podcast feed) where Papa Wolf (Nick Kelly) and his special guest (Tee, first time in studio!) recap the events of MAGFest 2017. Hear these two discuss the unique vibe of this festival, cosplay, retro gaming, our panels, and all sorts of insanity from this incredible Washington, DC music and gaming festival over fine, malted beverages…

With Tee and Pip flying solo in studio, the original topic for The Shared Desk is set aside for the controversy and the (important) debate fans, geeks, and writers of Game of Thrones have been engaging in since Sunday night. Has everything that could have been said about what happened in Westeros been said already?
Tee and Pip don’t seem to think so…
