Episode 30 – Post Gen Con 2018

SWAG Discussed:  
Psst… We have a super-secret Patreon page. It is super-secret because Adam accidentally flagged it as adult content. So until Patreon reviews our account and determines that our nudes are in fact *tasteful* (j/k), you can only find this page through the links we post. Go ahead join. Tell your friends you supported RPX before they sold out and went mainstream.
