Brooke Candelaria, ([htownbrooke](https://www.drupal.org/u/htownbrooke)), the new Conference Director for the [Drupal Association](https://www.drupal.org/association) joins Mike Anello to introduce herself to the Drupal community as well as to provide a preview of [DrupalCon Nashville](https://events.drupal.org/nashville2018) as well as her thoughts on the evolution of DrupalCon Europe. Topics discussed include trivia night, the decoupled summit, rodeos, Hurricane Harvey, The Princess Bride, the DrupalCon Europe licensing bidding process, shoulder pads, and perhaps the greatest answer ever to our always challenging "exotic animal" question.
* NOTE: We accidentally mentioned that the sprints ran Tuesday-Friday. They actually run Monday, April 9 - Friday, April 13, 2018.
