The Earth Station One crew attended two very cool conventions over the Memorial Day weekend. Mike Faber and Jennifer Hartshorn were guests at TimeGate along with fellow ESO Network personalities Dr. Scott (Doctor Geeks Laboratory), Jason and Rita (Transmissions from Atlantis), Debbie Vigue (The Thirteenth Hour), and Phantom Troublemaker (Earth Station Who). They found time to interview the amazing Moxie Magnus and there’s a rumor going around that they even met a Doctor! Meanwhile, Mike Gordon and the award-winning author Bobby Nash crossed state lines for the Alabama Phoenix Festival, where they met up with Joe Crowe (RevolutionSF podcast) and finally tied Van Allen Plexico (White Rocket podcast) to The Geek Seat!
