14 - Geek - How to be a Great Fan with Amanda Conley

Robin meets with Amanda Conley, blogger, panellist, writer, cosplayer, owner of too many YuGiOh cards, and self-styled 'princess of unpopular opinions', to discuss fandoms and how to be a great fan. It can be challenging to share your love of a fandom in an ethusiatic and welcoming way and the two cover the important elements of finding the right people, expressing yourself, fried butter, Red Dwarf, Marvel, DC, Harry Potter and much more.
