Official Q&A Videos

NOTE: see a clickable list of the Q&A sessions with brief summary of each below!

Awaken Realms does a weekly Q&A video with Marcin. You can be part of the live session that typically happens on Mondays around 4:00 pm UTC (10 am USA Central time). There is no advance link to a specific Q&A, you need to just go to the Awaken Realms Facebook page at that time and the link appears when it starts.

I typically watch each Q&A twice and type a highlights list of everything related to ISS Vanguard that comes up during the Q&A session along with a time stamp under the video window.

So, you can just quickly scan over the highlights and in less than a minute find out the latest from Marcin, or if you can find a specific item that interests you just click the video link and jump to the time indicated to watch that portion!

Here are the Q&A Sessions in the order they happened beginning with December 21, 2020. They all include my summary and highlight notes as well as a link to the video itself!
