Episode 55: Fanart Part 2

cover art in which Merlin wears a headset with microphone and holds up a finger to his lips as if to tell you to be quiet

In today’s episode, MissSnowfox and Xancredible are again joined by Amphigoury and Altocello to finally continue and conclude our talk about fanart! This is the second part of a two-parter, in which we’re talking about where you can go to find fanart, and how we feel about people making money off of fanart.

The episode is roughly 2.5h long, which is yet another miracle job of editing work by Rox because still none of us can shut up, and the raw file is 4h long.

To get in touch with us, send an email, an ask on tumblr, or tweet at us on twitter. You can also join our discord and find our podacst on iTunes!

If you’d like to tip us for the work we do for this podcast, you can find us on ko-fi.
