    On the seventy-first edition of Reality Bomb, we’ve given over the entire episode to a special report on convention safety. We’re doing a 90-minute deep dive on the topic on harassment at conventions and what convention organizers need to do to make cons safer.

    We talk to outside resources and experts as well as people in fandom and survivors including Christine Chapman of Uplift, an organization which has a special outreach program that creates codes of conduct for conventions and trains volunteer staff. We talk to Trickssi of the Cosplayer Survivor Support Network, an organization supporting survivors of abuse at cons. And we talk to Doctor Who fans Sage Young and Felicity Kuzinitz about their perspective within Doctor Who fandom about con safety. We also talk to regular contributor Heather Berberet, who offers her insight as a psychologist on the issues of harassment. Finally, we offer the stories of survivors of harassment at conventions.

     

    For more information:

    Uplift – an organization dedicated to combating sexual abuse in online communities through education and advocacy.

    Convention Resources by Uplift – an initiative which offers staff and volunteer training to conventions and consultation on creating codes of conduct and more.

    Cosplayer Survivor Support Network - a support network for members of the cosplay community who are survivors of harassment, trauma, sexual assault, or abuse. CSSN offers a report card on convention harassment policies.

     

    If you or someone you know is a survivor and needs confidential support:

    This is a special edition of Reality Bomb remembering a special person: Paul Condon, who died late last week. Paul was brilliant, funny, thoughtful mischievous and kind. He was a much-loved Doctor Who fan and we're paying tribute to him by presenting two interviews he did: the first (from episode 048) was recorded the day after Jodie Whittaker was cast as Paul explained who Jodie Whittaker was and what to watch of her work. The second is a Gallery of the Underrated from episode 047 as Paul explains why he thinks Delta and the Bannermen should get more love -- and offers a mind-blowing interpretation of what actually happened in that story.

    Paul Condon was the best of Doctor Who fandom. And he will be missed.
