In our latest episode, we were given the pleasure of talking to the director of technology for Anime Magic 2019 John Santiago and were given a lot of insight to what goes in to making a first year convention work. For your convenience we're posting the interview separate from our review of the convention for those who want to only listen to the interview. We can not express our thanks enough to the staff of Anime Magic for allowing us this opportunity to learn how much work truly goes into making the events that we love happen.
