Culture on My Mind
Totally True* Tails of Dragon Con
August 29, 2022
This week, I’m thinking about the stories from Dragon Con. Some true, some not, and others somewhere in-between.
On August 25th, Joe Crowe and Gary Mitchel were joined by an all-star cast of characters, including Kevin Eldridge (The FlopCast), Sherman Burris (Nerdburger358 on Twitter), John Hudgens (director, editor, producer), Shaun Rosado (pneumaz on Twitter), Sue Kisenwether (Women at Warp), Cristie Walker-Pettis (hvnslittledevil on Twitter), and Deanna Toxopeus (RevolutionSF) to swap
tails tales about the best convention in the history of ever.
These Classic Track Quarantine Panels will be held once every two weeks (or every fortnight, if you will). If you want to play along at home, grab your internet-capable device of choice and navigate the webs to the YouTube channel and/or the group on Facebook. If you join in live, you can also leave comments and participate in the discussion using StreamYard connected through Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch.
If you want to connect with the track, Joe, and/or Gary on the socials, you can find them on Twitter (ClassicTrack, JoeCroweShow, and sneezythesquid) and Instagram (SciFiClassicTrack, JoeCroweShow, and Gary_Mitchel). And, of course, to celebrate more pop culture awesomeness, you can find Dragon Con all year round on the internet, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
The next panel will be live at Dragon Con 2022! Like, a whole five days of them! After that, Joe and Gary will take a little break before picking up this series once again. After that vacation, you can find those discussions and more every other Thursday as the American Sci-Fi Classics Track explores the vast reaches of classic American science fiction.
The episode art each week is generously provided by the talented Sue Kisenwether. You can find her (among other places) on Women at Warp: A Star Trek Podcast.
Culture on My Mind is inspired by the weekly Can’t Let It Go segment on the NPR Politics Podcast where each host brings one thing to the table that they just can’t stop thinking about.
