Open Your Toys Cast - Episode 036: BOTCON 2010!

This is a day late and a dollar short. Well, more like a week late and hundreds of dollars short(er). That’s right, I have finally somewhat caught up from yet another amazing Botcon. That’s three years running. Thought for sure I wouldn’t be going next year. But guess what, Botcon 2011 will be back in [...]

There are show notes that outline all [...]

Imagine my surprise, when I arrived home several [...]
