Welcome to But Why Tho? the podcast, where we talk about the parts of popular culture that people say matter and ask the question but why tho?

 

Kate, Adrian, and Matt answer this question with through passion, geekdom, history and even some scholarship.

Jul 11, 2017

Kate and Matt went to their first Rooster Teeth Expo in Austin July 7-9th. They got to experience the fandom around Rooster Teeth hits like RWBY and Red VS Blue and the communities that have formed around Achievement Hunter, FunHaus, Kinda Funny and more! They take you through the cosplay, the charities, the community, the exclusive RTX 2017 content, and the massive line that ate RTX day 1. If you went to RTX Austin 2017, let us know what you thought about the convention!
