Each year the ESO crew look at the amazing four day event that takes over downtown Atlanta, Georgia every Labor Day weekend known as Dragon Con. This special series of podcasts, their Dragon Khan Reports, update you on what’s happening as the convention gets closer and talks to people with valuable information to give on what to expect, getting ready, tips and tricks that are useful for surviving you 1st Dragon Con or your 29th Dragon Con, and some of the things that you may want to take a closer look at while at the con.
Plus, hey, they’re just damned fun podcasts.
The six episodes so far, with the most recent one having just dropped, can be found on Stitcher Radio, iTunes, and at the ESO website at the links below (partial episode descriptions included for each.) The listings on the ESO website also include useful links related to everything they discuss on each podcast.
