Thermal and Papa Wolf were able to attend two days of the first ever BlerDCon in Washington, D.C. They were joined by Happy Hour from the Tower host Tee Morris, and had a blast at this convention that celebrates diversity among geeks and nerds. Take a listen to the Wolfpack as we discuss what we learned at this incredible event!
