PODCAST: August 28th, 2011, "The Road to Dragon*Con"

This week, much like I am right now, the show is all about Dragon*Con, which will be happening this coming weekend. For the uninitiated, Dragon*Con is a convention held every Labor Day Weekend in Atlanta, Georgia, attracting about 40,000 fans of things like: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Films, Comics, Animation, Gaming, Goth/Darkwave Music & Culture, and much, much more.

This will be the 25th Anniversary edition of Dragon*Con, so I've devoted this entire episode to all things Dragon*Con: The guests, the bands, the themes that will be featured at the Con this year. Think of this episode as a primer that might be listened to on the way down, or while you're getting ready.

If you have no interest in Dragon*Con, or are terribly sad not to be going this year, you might want to skip around this episode and listen to just the music. The talk breaks are filled with info about panels, and where to go at the Con to see various guests.

As always, I will be working for the Dark Fantasy Track of programming at Dragon*Con this year, hosting panels about Goth/Darkwave/Industrial music, Horror/Dark Fantasy films, and more. Our current panel schedule is right here.

**Note: Just in case there is any confusion, Dragon*Con does not officially sanction or endorse my podcast.

Oh, and in case you thought I might have slipped on my promise to always deliver something new on each show, this episode features brand new music from (rock stars of "The Venture Bros." universe) Shallow Gravy! HAH!
