Signal Boost #12: A Conversation about Conventions, Economics, and Inclusion

18 Jul

On today’s Signal Boost, Shaun and Jen discuss conventions, the economics of attendance, and how they can be more inclusive. They’re particularly concerned with how convention culture tends to be somewhat exclusive, how conventions often fail utterly at disability access, and how something called WorldCon should MAYBE travel around the world a bit more.

Then they squeeeeeee about this week’s mini-boosts. Make sure you let us know about things that YOU love that we should share in future boosts!

*Note: Jen conflates SFWA with WSFS. SFWA is NOT in charge of the Hugos, WSFS is!

We hope you enjoy the episode!

Show Notes:

  • Mini-Boosts:

Our new intro music comes “The Launch” by Chronox (CC BY 4.0), which has been slightly modified to include sound effects and for length purposes.

That’s all, folks!  Thanks for listening.  See you next time.
