I am back with another piece of the Balticon 46 Wrap-up. We recorded this piece of podcasting goodness at 11 PM on Friday night and it is the Late Night New Media Meet and Greet. In this episode, moderator Grig (Punkie) Larson talks with Trish Wilson (who writes as Elizabeth A. Black), Paul Elard Cooley, and myself about what we’re doing in the world of new media. And, yes, with a late night show, this episode isn’t work safe!

Show notes below the cut.
