As I type this, there are just 25 days to go until Dragon Con. If you’ve never been, this was a short (but very fun) look at just some of what’s at Dragon Con that was done for broadcast on PBS.
And while you’re checking that one out, this was a later documentary by the same crew.
You can also check out the fine people at Earth Station One who regularly do an amazingly entertaining podcast and who countdown to Dragon Con every year with their ESO Dragon Khan Report. They’re up to 7 so far this year.
They’ve just tonight put up Day 25. Sorry, but I’m not linking every one of them. They’re available on iTunes and their site is easy to navigate. When you find one, especially this time of year, you find them all.
If you’ve never been, this will all give you an idea of what it’s like. Oh, if you’ve never been and are thinking of going you might also want to check out this Facebook page started by fans to help newbies who have questions about what they need to do to prepare. Lots of useful tips. And even if you’ve been to Dragon Con, some of the above is just plain entertaining and worth checking out anyhow.
Hope to see you there.
