As I have a few times before, this year I will be attending Dragon Con as a media representative; this time I will officially represent Sci-Fi Party Line, the podcast that I’ve had the pleasure of being associated with since 2009. This will be our first year in an official media capacity at Dragon Con, and I am looking forward to bringing our listeners some fun stuff in the coming weeks.
Some of the things I am looking forward to at the con:
- all things Harry Potter related (duh) and guest Chris Rankin
- Sleepy Hollow panels with guests Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, and John Noble
- Game of Thrones panels and guests Kristian Nairn and Finn Jones
- cosplay, cosplay, cosplay
Dragon Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film. Every Labor Day weekend, about 40,000 people crowd the streets and take over the hotels of downtown Atlanta to meet friends, celebrities, cosplay and totally geek out. This year’s event will take place September 4-7. Ticket information can be found on the official website.
