Dragon*Pod - Your Audio Guide to Everything Dragon*Con

Dragon*Pod - Your Audio Guide to Everything Dragon*Con
« on: May 01, 2009, 01:56:55 PM »
Hi everyone,

I wanted to share a resource for Dragon*Con newbies and regular attendees alike. 

It's a podcast called Dragon*Pod.  I'm one of the hosts along with Derek and Swoopy from Skepticality.  They are also the track directors for the Skeptic and Podcasting tracks.

We discuss news as well as other general information about the con.  In addition we also do occasional interviews with track directors and other con insiders. 

We released five episodes in the spring/summer of 2008 leading up to last years con and we will start releasing new episodes for 2009 very soon.

Along with our regular episodes we also released a few bonus episodes that were done by fellow podcasters who created Dragon*Con specific shows offering tips and general suggestions for the con.

While some of the material in our episodes from last year was specific to 2008 there was also a lot of discussion of things that are still relevant for 2009 and beyond so folks might still find the information helpful even today.

You don't need to be familiar with podcasting in order to enjoy our shows.  You can listen to them right from our website by just clicking on the 'Play Now' link for each episode.   You can also download them to play on your iPod or other MP3 device if you like.

You can find us here...

Enjoy,

Kevin

Sorry if I was sounding too anxious.  No need to run out and listen to the episodes the moment they come out.  :)

Just want everyone to know it's an open invitation to offer us feedback and suggestions on how to improve the podcast.  It's for the community so any thoughts are appreciated either here in the forum or privately via our feedback page...

Glad to hear it...already building notes for our next show.  One of the items we plan to mention is the existence of these forums!

Just got a positive response from a track director I contacted earlier this week about an interview.  I believe Derek will be at the staff meeting this weekend and he has a couple of other people in mind as well.

Kevin,

Great job!

Thank you...always like to hear from the listeners to know what we're doing well and what we can do to improve things.

Based on our current commitments we will likely do one show per month for the next couple of months (May and June) and then try to do a couple per month in Jul and Aug.  A lot depends on lining up some interviews with track directors and other folks associated with the con.

Do you need a theme song?  haha

Kevin,

Forgot to mention...best part-from my view-was the part about the guest line up, about some of the bigger names usually aren't posted till sometimes a few weeks before the Con.

all the years I've been going, and my friends and I never picked up on that factoid.

Some folks seem to think that the celebs are being paid big appearance fees so they don't understand why the lineup isn't 'set in stone' months ahead of time.  Part of that might be because of the way the Creation Entertainment cons are run.  It's like comparing apples and oranges.
