Episode 121 – King Arthur Is All Fanfic

This episode of Nerd & Tie was recorded in a Super 8 in Dekalb, IL, as Nick, Gen and Trae were all at Karoshi Con! In the headlines we tackle Cherry City Comic Con’s confusing cancellation and uncancellation. Then we talk about the revelations surrounding the late Justin “JewWario” Carmical that have come out in the wake of #ChangeTheChannel.

Just a content warning, that story includes a frank discussion of sexual assault and grooming. If you can’t listen to it, you can jump to our main discussion topic at the twenty-five minute mark.

That main discussion is pretty fun though, as we let Nick talk about King Arthur — and mostly how every single fanfic trope you can imagine went into forming the “canon” of Arthurian legend.

Lancelot is just someone’s OC guys. Seriously.

Trae Dorn

Trae Dorn has been staffing conventions for over twenty years, and is a co-founder of Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con. Trae also writes and draws the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell they have time to actually do anything anymore. Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”
