Discussion

To start things off, Nemesis and Alca7raz once again go back to season 1 and talk about “Bridle Gossip!” You know, the one with Zecora. Talking about this episode felt a bit… timely. They related what happened in the episode, ostracization solely because you’re different and unusual, to some current events. Yep. And of course, they talked about the lighter elements of the episode as well.

They also had an interview with the co-chair of High Roller Pony Con (@HRPCVegas), StarStorm! He tells us all about the 2018 Vegas convention, including the… wariness the fandom has about one of those after LPU happened. It’s interesting, and quite informative, if we do say so ourselves. So make sure to listen in!
