Like pretty much every con that wasn’t in January or February, Dragon Con is going virtual this year. The con will be in bits and pieces all over the web, including DCTV, on Facebook, on YouTube, on Zoom, on Discord, on Twitch, and possibly elsewhere. Here’s a guide to the virtual con including everything that will be on DCTV, and here’s a Google doc that shows what the various tracks will be doing as supplemental programming on their Facebook and YouTube feeds.
This is my current schedule. There are two prerecorded panels I did that have not yet been scheduled, and once I get the times for them, I’ll edit this post.
8-9pm: “The End is Near: A Supernatural Fan Panel” w/Damian Allen, Kristin Jackson, Gail Martin, Marx Pyle, and Carol Malcolm (archived on YouTube)

By Dragon Con standards, this is a light schedule for me, honestly. With the added bonus of no crowds, no half-hour waits for an overcrowded elevator, and I can sleep in my own bed! Woohoo!
Looking forward to seeing folks on my laptop this weekend!
