This year’s Dragon Con is August 30 – September 3, 2018.

Every year for more than just a few years now, the Earth Station One crew has produced an annual series of shows designed to let fans- both newbies and long time Dragon Con veterans alike -know what’s going to be happening at that year’s Dragon Con while also dispensing some great advice along the way. The show- already under way now -has guests on who have a wealth of experience with the convention as well as guests who can give anyone a lot of tips and tricks to help prepare for and survive any convention; but especially the now five day nonstop party that is Dragon Con.

Combined with the The Unique Geek’s annual, just before con launched 50 Days of Dragon Con series, there are no podcasts that are better for getting you set for the big event or better at doing it in an entertaining way.

A little something to make your travel time to Dragon Con go by a little faster (or at least a little more pleasantly) with some great Dragon Con 2016 talk and panels from Dragon Cons past via Needless Things, Earth Station One, Earth Station Who, The Unique Geek, Arrow Squad, White Rocket, and others. Plug in some podcasts and hit the open road or the friendly skies next week with a little something to amp up your Dragon Con spirit.

Red DC Logo IconI’m a huge fan of Dragon Con. Ask anyone who knows me well. They’ll tell you that I’m practically a walking, talking, breathing advert for the convention during the parts of the year that I’m not there and enjoying myself at my favorite home away from home. In the last few years I’ve even had more than a few people call me, depending on how kindly disposed they were towards me, either the most loyal or most fanatical fan of the convention that they know of. But the weird thing (Funny thing?) about that is that if I had gotten my way about it, I would never have been a fan at all

A four podcast Needless Things flashback of the ghosts of Dragon Con panels past. A nice little collection of fun shows taped at Dragon Con panels that cover the topics of the G.I. Joe toys of old, Conan the Destroyer, and The DC Puppet Slam. There’s also a chat with DJ Spider and Sean Patton. Just a little something to hold you over until it gets here.
