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.

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.

Per the agreement made with them for my creation of content of material for their site, enough time has passed for me to republish it here on my own blog. I wrote for this for Dragon Con 2014, but, with a few tweaks, it remains just as true this year.<]]

It’s that time of year again. We’ve endured the winter’s snow, ice, and traffic nightmares, we’ve survived the Spring’s annual blessing of yellow rivers that drift lazily through the air, coating our homes, cars, and lungs with a carpet of pollen, and now we’ve finally reached the hot, sauna days of summer. And, if you listen carefully, you can hear the anguished cries of desperation as thousands of cosplayers throughout the land clutch their latest project to their chests and whimper, “I don’t have enough time. It’s less than 60 days away!” This can only mean one thing: Dragon Con is upon us once again. DC Logo (more…)
