    Hey there, people! Pony 411 is here for another week, and we have a bit to talk about. Like some quick hits, including a season 2 DVD release, the final fate of Fighting is Magic, that Equestria Girls thing, and more. Oh boy.

    Afterwards, Nemesis, LordFunkyFist, and Artfan talk some more about Unicon. Yes, we're still on about that. We discuss some of the new information since last week, and rehash some old information as well. A more detailed talk of Unicon's effect on other cons is had, plus some judgements are made on the situation in general, fair or not. Listen in!
