On this latest episode, Matt welcomes Julia O’Connell — blogger, goth nerd, and panel coordinator for this year’s Dark Side Of The Con III in Parsippany, NJ, presented by VampireFreaks.com. The two chat about how Julia got her start writing for VampireFreaks as well as creating her own Gothic literature blog, The Gothic Library. We also discuss how she got involved with Dark Side Of The Con III, what she’s most looking forward to at this year’s event, and what panels Matt will be appearing on. Finally, we discuss the tropes and stereotypes about goth culture, and how this con looks to challenge those.
