[13:44] Sugars japanese but but so the television series watched the movie.
What is the series are really enjoyed completely different than the movie completely different,
not start again is the word i'm trying to say,
yeah yeah acting really good choices as far as how to take the story and differentiated from the movie and then set it up for a really accusatory ben,
renewed four seasons two and three really yeah so hey portal watching it for that reason,

The tracks which are what you and i have extract pockets rising thrones.

[15:22] Hello put together some prep recorded that are gonna go up on the three dragon feat what did you record this year that people are gonna be able to see when the schedule comes out sometime next week john don't even.
I'm trying the app right now to see if it's been update hold on tight talk to be quiet,
yeah so we got four panels repeat recorded more still waiting to see which ones all be put up that we did
replay flexible old favorites that were really popular in the past we did apocalyptic throwdown aliens versus zombies
i'm so good bunch of writers together and give them some a different kind of alien a different kind of farm by and a random location and they get to debate would win.

[16:17] Ok now that's what i want to see now okay sister
i love that idea that is brilliant yes i'm in it we did it why we love to destroy civilization so it's kind of like ydg so many authors love to end the world and why do we love reading it,
look at that we did
pandemic we wanted zombies not masks and that's actually really interesting and change our behaviors,
what's up with that you know is how we were preparing for a disaster.

[16:58] Ok or did we need to change it or you know how do you do a hurricane shelter
cancel transplants derek king place yeah is reversing the snap so it's a look at after,
tony stark's holy versus daniels' snap and fifty percent of life returns to the universe like how does that look like how do we sustain it.
Can do that rm structure to relationships since i called you like all i got stuff.
I don't actually wonder that wun two because i always stop the interesting parties when steve's leading that focus group in their like i went on a day to see you cry when did you cry in
i'm like ok four now he just got on a date.

[17:49] Add his partner spouse whatever term is about to show up m. i. m. e about things like that and then you know
what that was your house but i've been here for the last five,
yes so many questions so many feelings in just like industry changed jobs
it's important children like brothers are now older,
weather sisters when the snap happen like in high school their boyfriends are now you know girlfriends here now five years older than they are the whole,
the second after the snap which talked about.
What happens after fifty percent of the population disappears yeah we're talking about what happens when they come back
what was really yeah i thought the descent job of showing you know all the boats that just are there things that are just sitting their i thought it was really interesting john kids get snapped and one does it,
suzanne five years later you're reverse in age.
Ok to my daughter is my daughter with snapchat so there an hour what does that do the sibling.

[19:07] I am i probably nothing.
Really like for thirty years old anyways so let me know there is that there is no cuz my sister and i actually talk about this one point.
Five years don't matter i'd like that yeah that the the kids haven't really ever had that sort of older younger
play ghostbuster for years by wiley enough worried we're not gonna take it exactly you know what,
i just flip my hair i think you know when you talk about.

[19:47] What kind of parallels for going through now like the leftovers in things like that were where it's at smaller amount of people what you think about that bass number that isn't even two percent of the.

[19:58] Set the world what that you know what the disney and never coming back.
No the leftovers with show i did not watch on johnny depp tell me to watch it and then when did watch it on like.
Ok this hurts this very moment story no title
yes pretty well done really hold on behind his dark
increase actors and actresses good stories actually liked the stories in the arcs made cents that was always important ok so what you doing that,
yes we saying the schedules gonna come out we have shannon and i don't know anything special
set a about what's gonna be we win so just as i am that rich brian here with you a wonderful guy so look at those.
And then are you what your social media presents gonna be used about that or we have a couple panels
hopefully a mix of live and prep recorded but i'm finding everybody's like i'm not going on dragon i'm gonna go on a vacation is the only labor day and never gonna be able to go anywhere other than atlanta
so it's all,
panels one is on the rise and fall of alien invasions on television as genre.

[21:26] Can you looking at colony falling skies as you know primary examples i'm looking at the genre.

[21:31] Add rosa doing conspiracy twenty twenty year of the apocalypse
how many facebook gonna look at apocalypto conspiracy theories
i will i will just say for some reason it
seem to see find a lot of them or they find me let's just go with it one of my favorites was it was all because of bats because somebody at one and then also.

[22:03] Did other things with a bad and i'm like.

[22:06] No i need to watch the movie with matt damon and buenos beltre because that's how it works somewhere so.
Yeah that should be a really fun panel to watch i am looking forward.
Trying to find that one yeah that's it trying to do we trying to keep it light and funny because i mean our topic is very now obviously and everybody's getting a lot of it all the time and,
dragons fun we don't wanna keep it
shuffle different,
oh yeah very much so awesome.

[23:07] That's gonna be a really interesting panel probably needs really big,
no i got it right the new rockstars right we was ben combined to our track from which is a good size but like in twenty twenty one a lot of this stuff is gonna be at the forefront of everybodys.
Wake interests in and stop so yeah we're gonna have to start looking at without my door audience.
Yes that should be very interesting a good idea attack for me for january it wasn't.

[23:44] Narrator says no no when we just found in a different light you have any of the anxiety dreams
provide conditioner yet is a director usually don't remember my dreams i'm just in general one of those people
what pad affirmative waking a good if not better yeah right
yes trying to get the whole world is trying to coordinate people and fun fact
almost every independent author has taken to an rv and his now driving around the country looking for inspiration for the next mabel
trying to get wi-fi am i think that's because i'm sure what did learn from
best things i keep saying is there is a whole lot of unintended consequences unintended.

[24:46] Lessons learned.

[24:49] Not everybody has wifi at their house or is going to get easily right you know my sister's kids started school and south carolina and they got computers.
End this call was like everybody gets high and the city is trying to figure out how to do free wifi for everybody so yeah i mean it's just things like that.
Unintended consequences i don't know that ever feel comfortable going back to a restaurant.
I hope i am i love going at eleven set yeah i miss it previously.
Upside this is like giving new value to things that you took for granted
no i really appreciate hang them before the needed before so you know it's like to look on the bright side all the time.

[25:52] I was just thinking would godzilla be on your track coming,
is hannah things like that is not is not i think so before anybody else we have had discussions before about,
what you like nino and the world by kygo panel that we've done before first pacific rim not the second,
set the wiggles carter,
so thats good ok john you have a question i can see it in your face research real quick in the world
how many times has shawn been died twenty five times twenty five times but he's actually fourth on the list the kids john hurt is number one with forty three,
time is died on the two others between there is built in vincent price.

[26:54] Which you think of eric bellinger easily play dracula
skill time wants to the monsters will some twenty five but still
no put on maxwell that's respectable for an actor i think is also interested prices
that was a time when there were i don't want to see you anymore movies in the army now cause i don't think there are but there were,
what those types of movies of the dracula's in night of the living woman not like of the living dead but day of the triffids is always when i like throughout their coats plants,
taking over the world and eating as is also scare don't care coming for.
Yes so so what last year listen to the last year how how we do panels go what was your favorite thing that happened favorite things that happen was or something that that went off lot better than you thought it was gonna go offer.

[28:02] Honestly i would have to say i'm already mentioned his theme after the snap channel we were hoping it would be popular with something that my team.
Add a not dead like a lion a people out the emigrate we're not a line it up panel track people are different line of fire stuff
well but you know people just wonderin but that was like a lion out full room like standing room only just really interesting discussion enjoyable
cancel that was why not we decided to bring back like a companion to it this year.
Disaster preparedness and prepping for kids so we did something that was kind of,
what's my disaster is not so scary for kids and help parents figure out like how to be prepared for a disaster with their kids and talk to the kids about it was pretty cool,
i think that's a really good idea because you know during all of these when it started you know there are a lot of comic book men some other books that came out that were free downloads or whatever because kids don't.
This idea that they can't go play with your friends right now yeah you got understand it too understand very differently or.

[29:24] Should understand very device so on the interwebs you're too late,
don't have two main platforms use for your social media for apocalypse,
where do we are mainly on facebook yeah so that's a primary filter instagram and twitter,
and then this year where we're kick it up a youtube channel
where create a youtube channel so we're gonna put our new content on it for this year for the weekend and then depending on how this goes and how much interest there is we might look at doing panels on a more regular basis through the year,
what's cool water two months just like
keep people on their toes in fresh we forgot to talk about the beginning almost famous back to you is the discord server.

[30:26] No join the ranks of the discord it's actually really cute the way that they did it.
Ok i'm gonna get this is getting broken a hotel lobby general chatter,
when they have the broken by tracks so we have an announcement one for us to make announcements and then there's a programming one you can talk,
programming one more gonna do once find out when our panels are gonna be airing is that we're gonna try and get her panelists together on the disco channel or like a facebook room
so that you can ask questions what you're watching it and they will be there in real time to answer your questions.
Since we were able to have that hole live given back to scores me figure that way at least people we will answer questions and answers.

[31:22] Ok well i will tell you right now i'm having a problem finding our server.
That's probably not somebody else just let go right now better when she online dragon con,
