ACDC = Armchair Dragoon Digital Convention
I was happy to be asked to host a slot for the convention's talking heads series. I interviewed Harold Buchanan, who arranged for a couple of surprise guests (well worth checking out).
Harold is a podcaster, a wargame designer, publisher of the online magazine Conflicts of Interest, and head of the San Diego HistFest convention. And a guy with some spicy opinions about our hobby.
