Discussion

To start off our discussions, we have to get into a topic that’s unpleasant for everyone: The recent thing with Everfree Northwest. Specifically, Kyle Elliot, the board president of the convention. He said some rather unprofessional things to several people on Twitter, including ex-staff and vendors. It’s not a great situation. (The best resource for specifics right now is Horse News. Go at your own risk: http://www.horse-news.net/2018/09/boycott-efnw-mlp-convention-head-goes.html)

On a lighter note, Nemesis and Alca7raz talk about “What Lies Beneath!” An episode about the student six. And their trek through the school’s basement. Or something like that. They talk about the various things that showed, how the student six are getting fleshed out a bit, and some of the more disappointing aspects of the episode.
