On 13th October Mary Franklin earned her TEDx Wings at Leamington Spa as part of Rhythm 2018, and now she has shared her talk for all.
The Force of Fandom! It’s all about YOU, pop culture fans. My TEDx talk is now live on YouTube! https://t.co/I1HsbFxmyO If you could share and help spread the word how powerful fans are, that would be fan-tastic!
