And joining me as though it's the lovely never in surprisingly never quiet but yet,

you know it is sometimes hard to do this thing that we do with the podcasting in the buttons and there's lots of buttons and it's fine I must say you're sounding a lot better,
I'm like I am finally oh my God,
yes I think I've gotten the early concreted whatever it was on the way please God don't let me get it again,
yeah I have a lovely lovely coffee summer cold going around Atlanta and it's just miserable.

[2:06] Today is the day were actually recording this was the deadline for directors,
I got my stuff in I'm very proud of myself so Eddie McClintock still is not the Grand Marshal of a parade,
any you gonna be doing operates oh is fifty percent,
well i mean it's out of my hood kids did early heck knows what might happen we got like three days many days till we're probably it were thirty eight days a,
as this one gets posted yes it will be this will be this will be day 12 recording so yeah so what 38 days out from Dragon time,
and i'm pretty sure that nobody wants to hear me set talk about anymore dates or times this points and after yesterday's broadcast.

[3:05] We could totally figure out you know we could do a totally different time because you know everybody gets a job all these working actors,
and everything changes but it's not going to I mean don't don't get too worried about that but you know it can happen but,
you know what i think is really amazing is just the gray gas we have the great tropics we be there is something for everyone there's there's a there's a lot of,
verse of the well enough or whatever its sandals with a lot of people than welcome to stop telling other women did you stop i'll get there.
There are a lot of different things.
A lot of different people who love those random there are a lot of people who love many different things in those fandoms so you know that kind of.
Difference of opinion that kind of.

[4:00] Jena se qua of phantom is always great
but I think what's really amazing is how diverse we at DragonCon a really really working to be I am trying John Hush little funny,
but I want interview has a new track.
Jarvis hi this is John and we told you it was going to be able to get there we're sorry what's the name and what is your,
your plan and what are you doing what your mission what your missing forgot okay the diverse the track is titled the verse the inspector fiction and literature.
That's a long title did that the little,
little code for you in the project the pocket program in the Apple be like div what do you think,
csfl or net worth.
Tsfl is what you are.

[5:16] You know big gover suggest names different and make sure,
that in this track want to make sure that all the different factions and individuals,
and represented well in Dragon.
So so the the the mission here is.

[5:41] Exploring exploring the various various
what the fuck
yeah we're looking at race ethnicity and gender social economic status nationality citizenship religion sexual orientation
ability and even hate wow.
So and so how about i mean is the new trend this year so what was the impetus for.
Okay i've been a friend of when pear season right.
And i met him through black size fixes it which is a nonprofit organization that i found it like ten years ago,
5000 black people from around the world that like science fiction,
and so he no new mr. Patrick Henry.

[6:52] I mean having conversations with them and myself,
we decided to where they decided to move forward with with this track and I was lucky enough to,
i brought on to run it as the tractor,
yeah okay.
Come through the parade.

[7:30] I mean I mean I mean I mean the computer go beep.
Well I mean so so you actually volunteered to do this right is that with it that you weren't one of those you weren't one of the folks that they've said that you have a sale you know this would be good idea and they said okay great so now you're the director.
But you actually you actually saw this out.
Oh yeah I left it at the opportunity because DragonCon is like this huge humongous immense cultural.
You know thing and I'm like if I can be part of that that would be great,
well it is really I think one of the things I started noticing.
I think I always nervous but really kind of work to notice a couple of years ago was we've had more people of color coming.

[8:30] DragonCon which makes me very happy I love.

[8:33] And especially more people of color that I've seen especially in Cosplay and that's always been kind of neat to see,
have a friend who does Ally the cosplay in the cosplay photography so that's been really good and yeah you might know.
Mom and other people so I think that it's really DragonCon.
Wants to encourage this it's not just you know it's not just for those,
destroys Super Bowl but it's not a middle-aged black guy.
DragonCon is you know the first rule is don't be a jerk and accept all and if you can't do that we're going to have problems so yay.

[9:16] Just FYI work that great yeah it's wonderful that has been,
one of the things that has differentiated DragonCon from other cons,
awesome awesome so what are some of the programming you're doing this year so I do not want you to list your whole schedule cuz,

Real life has made my Facebook time unfortunately a lot smaller so.
Believe me i understand i'm saying is i'm saying i think it's so that i will
John you should be really nice to Jarvis not making play the game but I want to make sure I get back to the condo forever cuz it came up last night when I was
I'm yesterday's podcast was reading a lot of dates and times for lots of things
what kind of forever is on thursday night nine but i can't seem to find the exact location of it.

[26:18] It's in the embassy something or other,
i get first ball is probably in one of the embassy ballroom which if i am rack and the sum of and the high at imperial ballroom oh the ballroom isn't a.
That's it then. Okay let me just say this.

[26:43] Subject to change check me out please,
go go go go go go cuz I'm going to be over I think we are going to be for our party on Thursday night we start at 8:30 ish.
I am we're going to be over at the Sheraton so you can come and check us out at the Sheraton,
and nicely walk yourself to the Marriott and check them out you can do,
you can do a lot earlier parties and then those late-night parties and then those rage that my son will be there with you with glow sticks at 3 a.m. in the morning it is important remind everyone though.
Unless I'm mistaken you still you need to have your badge by then though,
if I'm correct I think volunteer I think bad registration John I'll check and adjust your open until at least like 6 or 7 that night and possibly even later let me go check right now
no I was about ready to say I think they moved animal registration for the record,
her no is no don't get confused them vanilla oh there's i seen your call last year there was a table it was so the.

[27:56] Maybe that probably wasn't for that it's probably something else I'm thinking is
terrible games you're going to make us feel alright so as we've been doing this this season 50 days is DragonCon I've collected various trivia games throughout my career most of them some of them are
art themed like Marvel,
marvel family feud is star wars family feud the harry potter true.
Trivial Pursuit,
we played a couple of them this one is actually just going to be a generic movie quiz and as as I found them usually they're like on clearance or there,
TJ Maxx or,
or Ross or Tuesday morning or dollar stores or whatever these things are horrible their questions are terrible in fact,
let me get let me just for this example and I don't believe the proof right or anything but who or what is Rosebud in Citizen Kane.
So you saying lee what what is what was legg it's yeah yeah except for the answer on here says a sledge.

[29:16] What a sledge.
Oh my God these are either really easy or there.
They're really horrible one of the other there's no play testing involved here so we will start with.
We will start with you Jarvis hours for registration before we go into the plane.

And it is registration hours are thursday from kenny and it's ten pm okay so you have time to go get your badge except if you're trying to do that raven all night but,
