The Dragon Con Report

The Dragon Con Report

Dragon Con is one of the ESO Network’s favorite conventions of the year. Dragon Con is the Largest Multi-genre and Pop Culture Convention and Since 2012, we’ve devoted a monthly podcast to countdown to the big event over Labor Day weekend. While you work to perfect your costume, and your batch of apple pie ferments, give a listen to Mike Gordon, Jen Schleusner, Channing Sherman and many others while we deliver all the news, notes, tips, and tricks for newbies and veterans alike.
