Question 65 // Hey, Can I Come To Your Sci-Fi Convention? (feat. Jonathan Palmer)


Jonathan Palmer is the president of one of the midwest’s largest sci-fi/fantasy conventions, CONvergence. I’ve never been to a sci-fi/fantasy convention before and when a friend told me it was taking place while I was in town, I knew I had to check it out!

I reached out to Jonathan to sit down and learn more about the convention, but what ended up taking place was a conversation that taught me about community, solidarity, identity, and how, if it weren’t for racism, a map of Minneapolis' highways would look entirely different.

Join me as I sit down with JP, over Scotch, for a conversation that is… the reason I do this podcast.

Recording Location: CONvergence Convention, (The Hyatt Hotel) Downtown Minneapolis.
