Hello Internet!

This is another Roundtable episode because Erin got in late from LibertyCon and David, Oddball and Xander all attended as well, so it became an impromptu after-action report of the convention.

We mainly discussed LibertyCon and its events, but there is discussion of a few current 2A topics, and Erin got VERY tired at the end.
