And now for part two of the Revcast's indepth discussion on how fandom should deal with the tricky moral issues that crop up from time to time.  Once again, Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel talk with Tegan Hendrickson about a variety of different issues that have cropped up and how well or poorly they were handled. They come to some sort of concensus at the end, but like any complicated issue, there is no black or white, one-size fit all answers here.  It's an honest and engaging discussion.
