[4:09] Hold that is filled with vampires wolves and other demons to get on science,
i don't know if you make it through that black hole of the warehouse in vampires and demons
maybe somebody there can tell us what kind of the vampires and demons in another street.
Ugh me even been a new monsters a medical expect to see over there
is there someone that is that you know what we got somebody who got the relief that carroll who is the director of urban fantasy.
I like hi hello hello how can anybody in my face and doing last ten years or still get my like my first question for real tho
has it because it seems to be the only cast members it's missing i'm has the actor who plays danny other side can you drink on this well.
For my zombie have number i have not heard that yet add what what what what what if i don't understand what if literally if we can i submit your dragon.

[5:16] What did can still on for real yeah you played major yeah it has just announce yeah.
Put in that work graduation special loved getting worse but even that even that serious that yellow
the entire cast the entire cast is coming back good he has a nice zombie who is it played on me and
um i don't dining offers scotty is well busy display it google search i be donnie and i'm great so you just start talking about whatever and feeling so good so pure minded what is urban fantasy.
Blame not nobody ever ask me that question no i had called broken inside i'm looking for fantasy is distinguished from
some other types of fantasy by it's setting for one thing it's worth it.

[6:15] Place an recognizable world are for example it could be,
just u know the pay could be a real place,
that exists because some stories are set in atlanta or it could be a made up city or area but it still recognizable world that's not something that
you know it exists and just in someone's imagination or whatever it is its a real.
Life setting but with the supernatural involved and that can be in the form of magical creatures
are all sorts of you for mentioned vampire werewolf but can also be things like you know a joke.

[7:02] Men's n all that sort of thing that magic is always involved for the most part so.
I had my yeah what people at flight why is why is this between this track to that track another one
here all day i can run hard track and myself get that alot of times cuz we kinda see the overlap each other but like everything about it it's weird and some how the government involved or governmental agency.
I hate weird and government is involved is probably carol is probably true fantasy.
And now it's just weird when there's a whole lot of blood and gore it's probably there,
how would a thumbnail for it so what is your government yes was it really really blood no okay that sleep hey
yeah set up now i feel like i was correcting my zombie isn't falls on your crack right.
Yes yes cancel it to iphone lol yeah it's a it's not quite a monster,
series but just a place to organize and then no recognizable studying in seattle ummm sometimes to see some help um ainda.
And it's yummy bowls so museum and it's not.

[8:27] I mean there's a zombie the third what other shows falling under your um track is well.

[8:36] However i have a whole bunch of them actually this shit this year things that are current but in terms of shows that
are not currently airing that i do cover but also are now under the just hoping fantasy because they don't that's what.
What are essentially we can always call it that back then but that's where they work and uh i'm got.

[9:03] Add milk from the different show cast that i have coming this year in addition to the zombie i have lucifer
and yes and we have to cast member list for coming and we have the magicians we have some folks from there salt,
very excited about that as well and then we have supernatural
for the first time since my track has been in existance were actually getting some supernatural cash so that's very exciting and when i try to push more thrilled to have back so those are.
Five examples right there right because of the ones that we have cast members will be at cannes but there are.
You know number of other things that we cover as well american gods falls under would a track we had some of them come last year and that was that was what they were great.
Yeah what are you gavin and the wrappers are a cute my love that show i got a zombie i sent her papers in.

[10:07] What movies and more i mean you loved one is gonna read it i tried to get they're gone sorry but you're no that's awesome can banana original.
It's a good embarrassment of riches and we are and we love it and squeeze it in college george because you know theyre yours when it's
pretty tight for any of it any other gas so,
read what are some more like this not get star panels would just like gasping fan panels you're doing like in your room.

[10:39] I'm doing fan panel on all of the shows the cover on the track,
create ad with the we did have i.

[10:51] I'm calling a combo fan panel which is going to cover seven different shows and the reason for that is because
well there are only so many hours in a day i've already got fifty
55 of them schedule so you know you can only do it just so many and i just kind of fond of them together,
and i have
the piano has representatives
that will be talking about each one of the shows and so they will be and then being able to interact with the audience so that was something different never done that before i think the only time that we never did anything with slightly similar to that what is
when is one time i combined vampire diaries and originals panel because they were no
most people to watch one watch the other and that one was great the other but this is something totally different shows and they will be listed in the app which ones are you going to be
covered by the discussion set the i'm gonna see how that goes how to be kind of an odd,
hi new thing for us we do have
55 different authors being featured on the track wow that's a lot of authors that's so cool.

[12:11] No that will be you know appear and all kinds of things that i've i have authors that enjoyed taking part in the fan panels as well so i try to do a mixture of you know the.

[12:24] The author who are really into it or returning professionals and then also the uno.

[12:33] Turn the highest they can all kinda picks it up together and that's it seems to be working so far so good
will be doing more of that i will have
in addition to all of the ematic panels that we do like you know talking about we have one that's gonna be about ware wolves we have one that
that would be about the buffet in auburn fantasy what about music either.

[13:01] Authors who write it or by the yeah what role does music actually play in.
You know in the books themselves.
So we have we have has been addition we do have the yellow cube with jim what's your and patricia briggs and sharon canyon.
What are the reasons for that is that you want you want them to his fans to be able to have a chance to ask.

[13:35] I was that person so that when those other people when those people are on panel with other people if you know it's it's not just.
I'm getting questions to see if that makes sense and it anyways so we do the solo que andas we have we have those three coming up for those folks,
will we do have and we do not go.

[14:03] Ugh last week that stuff goin' on,
will in um you talk about cheryl ng canyon there is a big group in the parade every year better share a link indian fans and does that mean there and i would also say
look for if you got fandom their probably somewhere in there,
who yeah yeah baby in there somehow somewhere because we have like all things dragon con is a big thing and a lot of people are like just four of us that wanted to march today but.
Find out tomorrow june where are bars in morgan and i'm like yeah them up and she gets more ready and it will be great so yeah that is kool um.
Send john has made have thursday programming are you doing anything on thursday,
how i am gonna say that again till we get wednesday programming stop
i swear are actually doing something on thursday evening so i did last years well but i have but i want to try something different this year and.

[15:12] Yes i don't want people who miss the picture show and it that use to be able to start with starting out as an annual event and then it became i just said every other year and.
Get out now it's been a few years since we bought it and i want to kind of do something
forwards or going to scream just the episode and the track room on thursday night so hopefully,
will there might wanna come and just say it with a bunch of other fans and i had somebody comment when i said i was doing it
comment on the facebook page instead well um it's okay sing along and i said what courses you know go forward so.

[16:00] Add that is what we are doing thursday night that is your cuz everybody loves me it's cold out.
And even if i can only saying i got the mustard out that they got the most out of is always good as always get no i'm world since i came out there times now most of your,
can also understand it just because you know that it before our family friendly for general audience is there anything to do on light at ten o'clock hour that moves us into,
adult only time on eighteen and over time.
The only exception to the only thing that we have marked a as much is we are doin
the fan film that i read something which is a dressing universe fan film and it's screen before at a couple of years ago and i was actually the first time that it
i was in two thousand seventeen and i will it premier dat dragon and we are showing it again and it it's
it's march mature mainly because of language i mean it's not you know it's not a.

[17:13] I have that in the minds think alike to bring their you know,
tim try out with them or something that's the only reason why is first item can remember that it's marked that way but i would like yeah have any other late night program and usually stop at ten or do you have any other,
i do it i wish your i do have something going on at eleven thirty but it that's only because it kind of seemed to fit in,
thanks is what we're doing is kind of
gonna pretend we're around a camp fire over not going to actually build a fire in the western dinner anything like that um don't we have a group of authors who are going to be either reading or an least one case
tell me a spooky story the things written,
and then we also have the,
wonderful band valentine walls is going to be there and they are going to be playing in between each the readings and they will be doing some some underwear.
Let me know some accompaniment so under scoring to end parts of the ratings as well we are feeling that as the details on haunted mute hunting music and i'm hoping that you know people will enjoy it.

[18:34] Open the play but there's nothing about it that needs to be marked as.
Make sure you are signing people are welcome to bring whatever so let's get me that's good because then you know you got it.
Say hello anybody can't do that because there are people.
I have younger people that can stay out very very late um,
my child was able to do that when he's like fourteen or fifteen and go into an urban bourbon story webeng great knowing his father would've had to take him cuz i take a nap i'm going to bed
hi i'm not been on going to sleep,
show yeah that's no that's really cool i get you doing that jon what your scary is that woody the short rib in you know can also setup i thought of one which is.
I got the dragon con and i forgot my deodorant and then the cds and peachtree center was all out.

[19:36] Have a good scary or a fine yes i will be absolutely hard and,
and i had to stand outside waiting and waiting for the parade to start.
Yes yes outside and i don't have time to shower between the next panel and helping what is call waiting scary and way too real,
hello give me some recommended books in it recognizable system settings so i had no idea are you doing anything for your charity this year do anything special event for charity.
Where do we collect donations for whatever dragon con this charity is for that deer is a way called the battle of the track show fandom
and i have a little container
is the represent each of the shows that we have around the track and,
people who wish to show their support for particular show will put their money
end that particular container and then we added all up at the end and tell you who the winner is now it's usually true that the
the ones who win are the ones that have cast members there because they've got.

[20:48] You know that some extra fans and opportunity to do so but then i also last year.
Hey category of container for people who want to contribute but didn't you want to pick between shows or where.
Could care less about the shows and so i just called the pocket.
And it and they could donate that way because i since i do cover both.

[21:20] I have a number of people who come.

[21:26] I want ipa programming or the other and i do have people who come to us but i bet there are some distinct groups that come just for the one type of thing and so,
yeah i think we'll get out there with some directions that last year so we'll see.

[21:45] Alexa better that's super cool i'm are there any other inf.
You know like you know you liked a definite like to highlight that you're doing this year i know we talked about before hand is like,
well if i highly pissed won the melbourne doesn't get hunted men when did i get so yeah trying to figure out which one of your children you wanna keep,
good af what's the love them all but there are a couple that little bit more connected tiny bit of time yet,
now one thing is that we're doing is that this year is the twentieth anniversary of an angel
and so you are fan panel about iran that shes gonna be kind of looking back over the show and talking about you know.

[22:38] What started out as i spend half.

[22:42] Can you tell my daddy so you know the progress and stuff,
that sounds anyway so it's gonna be kinda fun in that was
no trying to also recognize the fact that the show has been around that long we will also have a
something i should've mentioned before dec your stalker will be back with us again this year doing a presentation on saturday and he is the great grand nephew of grandma
i would a wood like oh that info,
that is interesting yeah and and this is his third here
tell me to dragon con but he wasn't able to come for the whole can this year so what he's doing is doing a presentation on my track about the writing of a book,
it was actually a pretty cool.

[23:33] Hey and i had a co author and they did this together that's pretty cool to dracula his talking about.
How they did thus on his presentations are really very good and then i will but later hes gonna be doing one for derek on the horror track and then they're actually after that they're gonna be talking about tho.
The yeah movie so i wouldn't eric talk to you about those whenever he
gets to come on with your bitch de gonna be there doing office stuff in one day kind of spread out over the over the time but that there is certain that something that's a bit more than usual and it.
We have we have the return of the horror the horror.

[24:18] Could be depending on who's on the production connection kinda hey bot the return of the panel we do that every year i am an urban fantasy and it because i want people to feel that.

[24:33] Hey,
kinda not really a requirement because there is some out there that doesn't have any or doesn't have much but it is whatever fantasy that doesn't have a thread of humor so.
That panel is always very popular no.
Different with different people and the sheer that i ordered last year and it is so should be a lot of fun.

[25:01] That should be out of that is really getting in the how did i not know that great great,
nephew wasn't there before i sent this like it's the year and i was just on,
sum of one something today it was one of the reports we review and like i didn't know this isn't a pizza.
I don't know because he was there.

[25:26] This is this being the third time not that his car and he's a he's a wonderful speaker he is a lovely person he's really,
you know that has become what he.
I have spent most of his time i doing these days is kind of.

[25:47] What can to make sure the people are aware of his am getting open.
What what he.
And you know that's not the direction was not the only think you wrote the most famous thank you road so in a case that that's wrong
very exciting that we're going to have him back with us again and i'm sorry you didn't know before.
That's okay i did know exactly what i just noticed the payment how worried that's really nice.
So you know we have to mention that is where is the truck actually located who has done,
who is that is correct and then yeah juneau gets a little wilder every year but still not it's not
still not as wild as some of the other places so we're on the,
the main floor that what i said man for the one that you command
add to the most people coming to the hotel from that front entrance and six for beers the chest and level we're all the way back
behind the escalator and the one thing i'd like to tell people is that,
if i don't want to have to come through the crush is the that firm.

[27:10] Hallway that's the main floor there on that six four you can actually coming from the side of the hotel
and you can come in the side door which is like a handicap ramp and it has stairs to bit it's me you can get in that way you coming on the fifth floor and if you take the escalator up one level
right there right there right in front of you when you get off so that's a convenient way to.

[27:39] What's the track and believe me i do not like myself going back and forth between usually the hyatt and a lot of are in a big house and being so.
Enough because you have big name stars and fandom their are really let that fans really love their family so hey roommates.
Who's the pastry while i'm there always there.
Would you share a bedroom with a few other track so when we can get all the time so we do have,
we do have a fair number.
There and then this your hands no canada because we know that sarah planned for by great like going.
That is what we do have some big puddles in the highest and we can have a coupon the marriott this time that has the best of time and twilight that i've done that yet so we're
you know we're getting even a little bit more spread out this year but.

[28:43] Will i want to track is in the western enough because overall dragon con has an embarrassment of riches which is great and we are not embarrassed by it we just very thankful,
show your even having to share the hyatt,
we have so many so that is great you add john and i,
well i don't know how we get it but don't the peachtree ballroom that is four panels is in the western.
We corrected that a lot because yellow perfumes what is in the western wear party with harold and before that we were gonna say any other hotels to get on computer.
Welcome when weston yes.

[29:24] Create four yes i guess you had several people correct and that's good.
Thank you for thinking we will do for us so we will now that i'm the person who is talking about there are activities being in there never requested weather.
