DragonCon is already here again! As many of you know, this is our hometown convention, and it's HUGE, and so much fun. It happens every year in Atlanta, GA on Labor Day weekend. Check out the link for more details. If you plan to come out, PLEASE do yourself a favor and get the DragonCon app. You can navigate the con, you can easily search for us in the schedule and get current/ updated panel times and locations, and you can help us out by rating the panels!
This year we are pushing ourselves to the limit and doing FIVE fully-produced presentations. Our panels are sort of like live versions of our videos - funny and informative, with lots of research and visual aids. We will be rolling out announcements of our panels all week long, so check back to see what we have in store.
Side note: We always get asked if we will be posting the panels on the YouTube channel... the answer (as always) is yes. However, whether or not we post them in real time via live stream remains to be seen, as there are a number of technical hurdles to giving you all a good quality video. Ultimately, it's more likely we will wait until just after the con, edit them, and post them in higher quality. So now, with no further ado, here are our panels!
