[0:15] No featuring your muppet.
Hey portal
It's seriously seriously good.
Hey. It tried very very good to be back even though you know, technically, we record other episodes but this is the first one. Anyone's gonna hear. Well, this is it. I don't know why you're saying that.
It's good to see you Lee. It's been like 300,
Yes. I know. And it's true. Very sad. I don't like. That's not at all. But I don't like it when I don't see you. It's not. I don't like it. Yeah.
I don't like it when I don't see you either. So, hi, Lee. And hi to all of our friends out there that are news listeners, and or watchers, or our veterans, veterans.
Yes I salute our veterans. Oh that probably works. Yeah. Or.

[1:39] Long time listeners first time callers.
Desire to do this but maybe doing a live calling show sometime this year.

[1:55] Sure. Sure. Why not? Why not? We haven't been in trouble enough yet,
Oh, it's only, it's only day 50 day. 49. Well, it's more than 49 days today. As we record this. Right. It is day 15.
The podcast will technically up tomorrow morning this this one will go tomorrow morning,
Awesome. So, so but Lee, if you accept this, so you I I know you have to take it. We're having this argument beforehand. We're just now bringing it. That's brilliant. Please pick up.
When does Dragon Con start then?

[2:50] Night be 1 PM but yeah I think it was I think it might be later cuz I mean right now as we here let's just let's just look at the official calendar here real quick,
I am the talent of this podcast cuz John said that,
That recording forever and ever and ever.
Yes, sir. Captain, take pants, which is what I have,
Yeah. Oh, that's interesting. Okay. So, as we record this, 49 and 22 hours. So, what minus so 2 o'clock, I guess is no one.

[3:39] 1 o'clock. I think you're right, 1 o'clock. 1 o'clock. Yeah, cuz the 49 minutes is a burger. 10 AM or 1 o'clock. Yeah, I don't know. Yeah. But at 10 AM, people are
There and wondering people will be there wondering Wednesday,
So, that's okay. You are just.

[4:12] I'm sure. 100% true. There will be a rock. Rock.
And Sarah's there on Tuesday,
Yes a lot of people come very early and,
But first of all, you got the high museum which always has wonderful, wonderful, just regular paintings and great exhibits. You got the Center for Puppetry Arts.
That is absolutely amazing. You've got well, you got Coca Cola. If you like World of Coca Cola, it's great. Georgia Aquarium.
Whoo good and then there's also at the Georgia Aquarium Dragon Con Night. Hmm. So, you can look for those tickets as well very very soon.
But that's really cool and then also I'm very worried that there might be a Braves game that weekend I'm gonna look,
Yeah, but here's,
At least. Maybe three Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I don't know but I know there will be due and that's always fun as well. But there's a lot.

[5:29] Yeah and Sarah's the botanical garden Sarah.
The botanical gardens are gorgeous and right now they have origami in the park which are all these beautiful sculptures of,
Using origami techniques or made to look like origami and they're huge and beautiful and awesome.
So, that was good. Also, if you are here and have access to a car, I went,
And they have a very nice little nature center,
And that was a lot of fun to be around too. I got to have a nectar stick and I had butterflies. All over me. It was great. Oh, we planned it on my hat too,
No, I don't.
I don't usually Instagram. So, I don't know if you, I don't know if you watch only murders. In the in this building. What? In the building.
Yeah I'm only murdered in the building and I did watch season one we're gonna have to.

[6:46] Oh I'm,
Feeling to pull her name but the the the female in the in the show. She,
I still have no idea what's going on still. So, that's what my my grand thing. We didn't really introduce ourselves or what this podcast is about for those people stumbling across it although I would imagine the name says it all. But Lee, you wanna
Some background.

[7:22] 13.

[7:28] 13, 14, 15, 16, 1718, 1921, 14. You're right. 14, you're right. So, 14 years ago,
John and I, John invited me on a podcast, and then we started doing this, which is just to talk about Dragon Con and talk about
The wonder that isn't dragging the wonder that is dragons on and everything else.
Hmm. So, we will be bringing track directors. We will be bringing other directors. It's not all tracks at Dragon Con as I'm sure
We're gonna see about maybe getting some artists who wanna talk to us about their art and maybe even some movie makers because
Dragon Con also has a film festival which most people I think know if you've gone to Dragon but the great thing about this podcast is especially if you well,
Two things. Or great about this past year. Number one is if you're a veteran or a dragon, you're gonna hear about something that maybe you didn't know about before.
As a veteran sometimes we can keep our fans squeeze just a little low but then all of a sudden it's like ah oh my
Yeah, I've never seen Joe Flanagan in a panel. And Lee, I was, I was looking at something else. Did you, you mentioned, did you mention that you were you've been a director at Dragon Con for? I.

[8:57] I was a director,
So, it's been kinda awesome. I've loved the time I spent with it. It was time to.

[9:19] Very very strong second of Deb you know I'm into the extract room before so that's great but as I was saying so number one is Veterans you're gonna hear about something,
Or oh my god I've never heard that person being there. I don't know that Michelle or has ever been here. She's on the guest list and she's roughy her card,
So you got that. But then if you're new to drinking, drinking hunt is,
And it's not just about the guests. Hey, the reality is that the the guests are just added feature but go ahead. Sorry.
Plus parts usually of the Atlanta America's Mark Atlanta's mark that is near the western,
In those five hotels,
There's everything. I mean, there that's where the tracks are but that's also where the main programming is. Then, there's gaming in a part of it and then there's an art show and then there's all this. So, especially if you're a newbie and you're just like,
Oh, this is too much. Don't be too much. Can you candy? Hey, you're gonna hear and it can be. It can be too much even for those of us that have been here many a year. I am holding my hand up because wow, it can get really big.

[10:44] But it'll be great because then you're gonna hear from some people who are like oh great I'm glad I am a fan of stargate Atlanta so now I know,
That I need to go to American side five military to talk about those programs and,
Also that the the guest may be both in main programming and on those pages although those guests that they're bringing which is Rachel Lutrell and Joe Flanagan right now,
Maybe more later you'll never know at Dragon Con. That's the other thing,
So, you know, and that's the other thing. That's our featured guest right now. As I said, Joe Flanagan, I've never seen him in a thing. I'm so excited. I can't stand him. There he is. There's a cute little slipper. And yes, his ears look like a little.
Healthiers. Watching episode. You don't believe me? Watching episode where the hair done cover em. They look like little itty bitty. They're not like totally a point.

[11:41] They are very very close to a point. I would think yes.
Possibly some Elvin.
You're gonna love it and you're gonna have fun and you're gonna hear about what is called a drum circle.
It's all hydrauma.

[12:31] Dragon Gon is like a really big family reunion,
And my understanding is this year they're looking at guest number around 60 members of 60 1000,
Yes, John. Not gonna be that high. But members will be 60 house, yeah. I think I just,
Rachel just had a little bit of a and doesn't know what's almost put this way everyone a dragon cunt is a guest,
You just mean I'd have an official title I suggest.
I should point out to you about this particular podcast and it will we will say this throughout the season,
No. Full stop.
Our opinions are on our own. Even when I was attractive director on this podcast.
I speak as Lee the big fan.
We're getting there. We're getting close. We're getting close. We're getting close. And I'll I'll I'll hit that effect a second.

[13:52] But it was it's great and we love doing this and we love sharing the joy that is dragging con. So, you can come on and be here and be happy and find your found family.
And the great thing about this found family.
You are gonna wanna talk to a whole lot of those,
And somebody talked about music.
So, John, will you bring that future guest list up again? Oh, yes. Certainly. Well, well, you've been. And thank you for making sure I remember that.
Sharon but,
This is like.

[15:04] We enjoy their music.
And so that'll be great and you've got all these others and if you go to the Dragon concert Dragon Con. Org you can actually go people to see and you can see the guests,
The performers and the professionals in john,
Okay. So, let's explain the difference. Just really quick. Yes. Between a guest, a performer, and a professional.
So a guest is someone who does their job for a living and it's paid at it IE and actor comic artist a writer,
Those are the people that are guests sometimes those guests are also,
So that's who a guest is and guests are,
Get invite they fill out applications or have their agents or somebody else do it and then they get accepted and then they come to dragon caught,
One thing I do wanna say,
That right now dragging on is on,
All the guests right now. You're always gonna have the guests and performers and professionals do have to back out.

[16:25] Go into that understanding with dragon con that it is a very flexible type of thing that there are gonna be things that happen like that one of the jokes all of us make a dragon con is that the panel.

[16:40] Isn't official until your butt's in the seat.
And it's also we make another joke which is nothing is official at Dragon Con until the Tuesday after it's done. Yeah. And I always said that the panel didn't occur and that panel hasn't. Right. It doesn't exist until after it's over.
That's exactly right. Because you never know.

[17:19] Being in the panel whether that's in the track rooms or in a gaming room or wherever cuz gaming does have panels as well folks.
But if that happens and then all of a sudden you're like okay well they've also got two more people up there,
Okay so that's who I guessed it,
These are your bands,
I'm actually looking through it again to see. I guess I could just do it. There will be. Everyone can watch well ideas. Yeah, there you go. But yeah, most of these are.

[18:21] Either single performers or a band and they'll be there as well and there's a lot of places there are very late night performances.
That have these people? DJs, things like that, yeah. So, DJs, oh and DJs too, yes. Oh, late night. So, those of the performers that will be there but they're very late night and yes, Dragoncon is a lot of people say, oh, come on, it's really not 24 hours.
It is 24 hours a day,
From when it starts at,
Monday? No, you can't count. And we know that you don't read either John.
Don't don't don't try confusing yourself.
The jokes but but but when we start this podcast.
You know, we start it.
Somewhere afternoon on Friday. Right. And so we kept saying.

[19:35] Going across. Lower, lower,
But now to start officially on Thursday I I think even when they start on Thursday like a couple of years back it was,
It was like five or or 7 PM or something like that. Yeah.
At the at the very beginning.

[19:58] Hey.

[20:10] Expensive. We're gonna kick it right out of there.
We're gonna kick it right out. We're gonna hit it out of the ballpark not kick it out of the ballpark. I know the difference. I do like sports. I'm just very tired. You're gonna.
We're gonna yeah we are gonna we are gonna grab the golden snitch,
Okay so but.

[20:52] 24 five. So, this there is something going on. If it's 4 AM,
Is that your personal assistant?
But yeah there's gonna be a drum circle maybe at 4 AM at 3 AM I can promise you there are raves,
That start.
We're asleep.
Yeah. That was wrong with this. Oh no.
But so you got all this time and the only reason I can promise you that yes there is there are raves going on at 2 AM is that my son? 23 years old.
And the first year he went to array.

[22:18] He didn't even get in the bed. He put his butt.
If that's how we slept.

[22:33] I got a picture on the wall. Actually, put it on during a panel cuz I thought it was so funny. But it's great and so you'll do that. There's something going on. There's also,
A dinners. They're dance parties. People are gonna be saying, hey, do you wanna go get early breakfast,
Have fun and there's gonna be a lot of stuff like a couple of people have pushed out that they're,
Starting at 10 PM is,
Open filters.
They are exhausting because Rob is also a DJ who gets very tired at the but there are a lot of fun.
I can say this cuz I know we're.
And and then how we got in all of this started, right? Was I was explaining guest performers and.

[23:51] So professionals.
We use a term loosely.

[24:08] Invited.

[24:10] Professionals this year and so for some of us that must be a very lucy goosey. Right, that's what I'm saying. It's a little.
But there are others that are very
Very sad. Yeah. Yeah. I have been to know father Brian Small who is a Catholic priest.
Is listed as a professional because he'll come and talk about the Catholic church but then he will also just talk about how much of a fam boy,
Of I think it's supernatural and so many other shows he is. So,
Yeah and that's always great. People like with PHDs, a lot of the scientists, those all coming under,
Under professionals other podcasters come in under,
Typically come under front. I mean, I I assume if if some of the bigger podcast folks come in, they would go in as guests. Probably yes. But but for the most part, most of anybody's in the.
Podcasting is attending as usually professional. If they if they applied.
They stopped in June folks. Do not apply.
Being added to this. This role of,
There is also people who have unfortunately already had to cancel.
And that happens folks. This is real life and let's not joke. Right now, COVID is not done with us no matter how much we are tired of COVID.

[25:40] Getting tired of us. It loves this little nom nom nom noms.
Cuz I put Durham State,
Michael Williams.
Rolling man. I, you know, you may know who these people. I don't like,
But i don't know who this comic book guest is but you will cuz this person's been doing dark horse comics for 20 years and you can't wait,
2000. Those will be things.

[26:23] No. How many guests? What was it? What was the guest countdown?
Then do we remember
We actually technically talked to
Some folks the other day that
That could have covered it. We didn't actually go into it but that much. Because really the the realities right now, everything is still in forks.
But yeah if you if you've attended in the past and.

[27:12] You
Or 2018 or 2017. Those are really, really, really, really big shows. I know that they've capped. They've they've capped attendance to numbers lower than that right now. Soft cap.
We got a science track. We got a space track.
We got it all. So, you know, if you're.

[28:01] Particle physics,
That's great but then also show them that there's a science track with people who probably will be coming to talk about quantum physics and string theory and
All of that stuff,
Is showing the different tracks. So, there's that. But also.

[28:41] I would not save a lot of people like 50% of the people dress up at Dragon Hot. I would say it's more like 25 or 30%.
But the people who do dress up in costume cosplayers and costumers,
And I'm always just absolutely blown away and I've been watching Star Trek Strange New World and I rewatched the Fantasy episode last night and I cannot wait to see me some,
Those costumes. I I cannot wait to see Uhura in that big old wide dress. That was gorgeous. Oh my god. That was gorgeous. So, I can't wait and it's awesome and you're gonna love it.
So but that's what dragon honey is and we like to talk to it. We like to talk about it. We like to bring people on who wanna share the joy that is dragging con. We wanna get that message out.
The other thing about Drying Kong which is very different than other conventions you may go to is this is a fan,
And John what does that mean for our listening audience? Well, what it what it means is that.

[30:02] For the most part the staff of Dragoncon is actually fairly small it might be,
It's 20 at less 20 years or less. I don't even wanna venture a guess. I don't even know. But it is it is very small. For for the convention it's very small.
Two digits. Yes.

[30:21] And.
Is Regina.
Oh yeah, technically, she's bosto board.
We'd we as fans are that the track director's mostly. Decide what the panels are gonna be, what panels are gonna have. There's some input.
But they they decide
You know sort of where it's gonna go and it's from input from the fans and the fans participate in the lot of lot of folks they you can apply to be moderate or not a moderator but a panelist
And it's up to each of the the directors sort of sort that out. The discussions that come up are are usually generated by,
The interest in that particular track and and what the what their interests are. So, the point is is that at the end of the day.

[31:39] Just folks like you and me that are doing,
Yeah, there is no fun and profit. It's for fun and it's,
Because we love it and we wanna give it back.
Pants optional for panelists. We just got that question. Nothing wants to know.
Pants are not optional. If you are there
You know what? That's between you and that track director. I don't wanna see it. I know you wear. I know Madman. You wear your Batman Fox debris but yeah.
No. So do that.
But yeah so that'll be interesting and this year again just like last year and it's my understanding it's all of the Phantom tracks this year are doing two virtual panels,
And they will,
During dragon condo will be a different times during that period but they're up during dragon hunt. So, you will be able to see those as they go out. They promise you they'll be on the dragoncon app. That's something else we'll talk about in just a second.

[32:59] They'll be on the dragon hunt out. They'll be on Facebook pages. There's the app. We'll tell you all about it. The app is not out yet. You need to hush your,
And it's wonderful. The app is absolutely.

[33:19] App is.
And it only comes out,
Any earlier,
Is Sarah Sarah just said it hurt she goes to the whole app
In marks everything and anything and everything that she this is just a general dragon roll for those people that have are new to dragon,
Because who knows? It could be you know whatever.

[34:16] Yeah you got all of these lists and you you've like highlighted them however you wanted to on,
What you might wanna do like I do a lot. I'll put like four things there and then on my app I have them in color coded for me.
So that that works. And you know, this is not trying to say, get off my lawn. But for all of those people who are like, why can't,
It's 2 weeks beforehand I promise you will have enough time to look at it,
Get off my lawn buttercup because it used to be you would stand in line for a very, very, very long time. Get your badge and to get a paper out,
Good night. You kids don't know how easy you have it.

[35:11] Before global warming.
We would run out of highlighters,
No not very true. But yes. So, yes, smells like mouth bells in here right now. Yeah. Get off my lawn, you people. But that's great. You will also,
It's just wonderful to have the app because you can do that and then it's also because you can share it with your friends.

[35:44] And by sharing the app where you are they can go okay wait,
And you can look at you can search by any hotel,
Depending on how you feel. Like if you're at the Sheritan that's one of the few you actually have to be outside for the day ball. Right? You have to walk from wherever you go walking from to the Sheritan. So the day ball will hit you.
And tell me why I just can't take the day ball right now. It's,
Yeah, I just, it's too hot. It's too muggy or it is pouring down rain.
And I just can't,
What would I like to go see as my number two choice or my number three,
I am over here in this little tiny area in the Hilton.
You can look up the hilton you can figure out what's around you and do it that way and it's wonderful to be able to do that because it really does help
The other thing I love about the is that it is very easy to explain the joy of dragon con later.

[37:00] Because people be like, what do you mean by the app? And I'm like, look,
Feedback. You'll have lots of those. Guess what, folks? They really mean it. As John said,
I better go.
The volunteers and the dragon caught overall,
So, when you do that, always use the rating. Thank you, Damian.
And then,
Tell them that, right? Tell them that. And there are certain things, especially for me as a track director, one of the worst things I would ever get is,
Panel was great but I really like that. I really dislike that short, white, crazy woman with the weird hair.
Well, that would be me. Well, okay, why do you dislike me? What did I do? Oh, is this a question for me?
No. Not at all. I would never ever ask. Do that. Unless you want me to start with you.

[38:15] No it's okay. No no. No. Okay. So but that's really it. It's really,
That helps and that's constructive.

[38:34] Don't just be mean to be mean don't give a rating of one because I had to stand for 2 hours to get into this actor panel.
Yep I'm sorry you did it,
You gotta you gotta be really,
At Dragon Hon one on one or one on our,
4000 fans to one person,
Most of those people are volunteers so we're not getting paid. They aren't getting paid, not we anymore. John, I,
Oh, I'm having problem with that. So, there's that. So, yeah, we don't always, we don't get paid. Be nice. It the people are volunteers. At the end of the day, people are volunteers. They're there. They're, right?

[39:26] If they,
They could be doing other things. They could be going to see the panel that you're trying to get into.
Okay when will you guys get a podcast panel or live show and people are saying that stole my question yeah yeah yeah.
We don't know that we are if because that would be like 54 days of dragon con right.

[40:09] We're not gonna do one today. I don't think. No. We might be on other panels. I hope to be on other panels because I love talk. I have so many fandoms and I get very very into them and I get into the minutia
Just an unholy squeeze,
I just,
I just need to entertainment show and I still will go back to it same way we do so,
But there's that so that's always good. So, yes, we would, we might have a live.
Panel. We might be able to ask some people if they'll let us use their track room. Yeah, it all comes down to,
It all comes down to.
Let's say Rose also likes target universe apparently.
Hey thank you for,
Actually dialing now that they've kind of sort of got this stuff sorted up.
Rob wants 365 days of drag gun that means at least at least one 1 day every 4 years we get a day off.

[41:28] What time is it?
These people are so.
Come on. Come on over. You have no idea.
How exhausted you can be and it's a lot of but you've also had a lot of,
So Rob did close that loophole unfortunately he does have 366 days for leap years so.
And both of y'all are,
But that's what we're gonna do with this over the next 50 days. Will we John? I'm going to ask you. Will there be 50 podcast for 50 days?
So, 50 days of dragon is a little bit of this number. We try to get close. We try to actually my goal is typically around 40. We have.

[42:51] As I'm sure everyone knows it well besides lives but as as I'm sure everyone knows.

[42:58] I wanna get back to Brandon's question just a second.

[43:07] There's just things that happen. It's just too much to try and do one every single day. We try to stack them up sometimes. If you, if you follow us on Instagram, Instagram, why do I keep saying Instagram?
Way over 30. So, I'm no longer on Instagram,
But we are on things like Facebook you know the thing your grandma uses I don't go there anymore but
I guess Twitch you can see when we're on Twitch.
The unique geek across all of them. It's the unique geek that,
Dot com.
You will see when we post sometimes we'll do two recordings in a day we'll do we've been doing this live cuz it's just A it's easier for me to edit,
It down the audio that comes out of here.
But but the the.

[44:14] Where is it going with this? Oh, you you can you can watch the stream. You can watch, you can also go back later and watch the streams if you, if you wanna see, if we said something and you wanna figure out what the heck we were talking about, that was only visual. There's that.
A lot of people we have told us that they say that they're way of driving down to Atlanta or getting here on the plane or whatever is that they will pop on 50 days and that's,
When they start getting really, really, really excited and,
For listening we think all of y'all from,
We try to target,
But the ideas that we start,
Read the question. Is there going to be prerecorded.

[45:27] We had just had that argument just me. It's actually gonna be posted tomorrow morning. This this particular podcast you're listening to right now will be tomorrow morning then we'll start the other ones. If you if you've been following along we're sort at least we also sometimes record added order,
They're depending on when we can get people is really what it boils down to.

[45:48] I forget who we were but basically we were busy.
Who is co-chair of Dragon Conor? Hey, Mandy. Who is the CFO?
But it might be hard for people to listen to because his audio was he was recording as he was driving to a wrestling,
To to do some announcement stuff. But it was fun. The times we got to talk to him for the we've all we we always enjoy talking to all of our directors. But Joe is Joe is a special character.
All in his own you can see his stuff over on Facebook for his track. They keep it up year round. They do 365 days of American sci-fi classics.
Actually there is a lot of stuff they put up at least one a month if not two so that's really good and I love
Don't what Dave says I appreciate all the days you must do thanks for all the hard work we appreciate,
Thank you all for listening because,
Talking to air. Zan thinks we're gonna hold the do the podcast recording in my hotel room. That's assuming I have a hotel room at this point. I'm not sure if it's. Well, that is assuming that you.

[47:10] It's great and remember there are also a lot of things that also go on for charity at Drankon. There is an official charity for Dragon Con every year. This year, it is project opened up Atlanta.
Which helps those with HIV and some other chronic illnesses get meals and have companionship and people to talk to,
That sometimes is desperately needed because they don't.
Yeah there are people that don't have anybody else there is also there will be a charity art show there'll be a charity auction all of this money goes directly to charity and the great thing is up to 100 K,
Dragon con matches dollar for dollar. Yeah. So, it's awesome. We get 100 K.
By the way 100 grand,
Attendees members, members.

[48:33] By the way we always beat that,
They don't see this kind of donation come in all at once and so it's it's a nice thing that the dragon does they don't do not have to do it there's no reason for them to necessarily have to do it but it is it is I'm sure there's,
There's a little bit of benefit probably from taxes or whatever but that's that's besides the point. That's not even not even scratching a surface of that right. So it's not hesitate to even,
Right and then there's also a blood drive. We do a blood drive every year and that goes for all 5 days. It will start early,
It will continue past when dragon concluses on Monday. After,
On on Thursday the following week is I wanna 3 PM personal Monday,

And that helped me stop and stabilize me. I can't give anymore due to other health issues. Mm hmm. But and I know there are other people who cannot give blood and.

For a year,
Well I can't. Can we still be yeah no so much. But we technically I've been part of most of my life but I was born in Boston. See. There you go. But those are the things to know and it's just always wonderful.
