(File: https://www.dragoncon.org/mediarelations/2017Podcasts/DCMR_podcast_2017_01.mp3)

Dragon Con Interview Manager, Samm Douglas, joins Dan Carroll, Director of Dragon Con Media Relations to talk about the variety of interviews available at Dragon for approved reporters. Since this is the first podcast of the year, Dan and Samm go over some basic administration for reporters at Dragon Con including, how best to contact the Dragon Con Media Relationts Team (email), where to pick up badges (Greenbriar Room-Hyatt), and how to apply for interviews.

Interviews covered include:

  • Walk of Fame Guest Interviews: These interviews are by invitation only and are limited due to the limited time available with the Walk of Fame Guests. If you are invited to apply for these interviews, you will be given a passcode that is used to request interviews. If you have not gotten a passcode, it is most likely you were not selected for these limited interview slots.
  • Interviews with Writers/Artists/Comic Creators/Other Guests: These interviews are open to all reporters. When the form is available for requests, we will announce it on Twitter and via email to all approved reporters.
  • Dragon Con Director Interviews: Approved Reporters can interview Dragon Con Directors by phone or skype prior to the convention. This is an excellent way to get a insider’s point of view on the convention as well as highlight areas that might appeal directory to your fanbase. Please understand that Dragon Con Directors are unable to grant interviews at Dragon Con due to their work loads.
  • Dragon Con Media Relations Director/Spokesperson Dan Carroll Interviews: Dan Carroll, Dragon Con Director of Media Relations for 9 Years, is available for interviews prior to the convention as well as during the convention. We recommend that you secure a time with him early (either on site of prior to Dragon Con) so that you can get some fantastic insights into Dragon Con.
  • Podcast Space at Dragon Con: Request a time for designated podcast recording at Dragon Con, right in our Dragon Con Media Relations Room. We will be providing a number of tables and electrical rigging to conduct your interviews. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide an internet connection.
