120 - All About WorldCon (DisCon III) w/ 2021 Co-Chair Bill Lawhorn
WorldCon, AKA the World Science Fiction Convention, is one of the oldest and most storied conventions anywhere, the home of the Hugo Awards and the source of much fandom lore. The 79th annual WorldCon will be in Washington D.C. at DisCon III, August 25-29, 2021. DisCon III Co-Chair Bill Lawhorn joins Rob & Jesse to talk about the history & meaning of WorldCon, what to expect in 2021 (Sheree Renée Thomas & Malka Older hosting the Hugos, yes please!), and how DisCon is addressing certain *ahem* issues that previous WorldCons have faced. Listen in & get all the details!
