Anomaly: Sci-Fi / Fantasy Geek Chats (convention panel)
Fun, conversational episodes since 2007 on Sci-fi / Fantasy and geek culture. We cover: fan conventions, sci fi fantasy TV, book, movies and more. In addition to the 50 episodes available here, you'll find many, many more at anomalypodcast.com.

That's right, it's another panel from Dragon Con!  Earlier in the week, Sue put up a poll in the Anomaly Facebook Group which included all of her recorded panels from Dragon Con 2016.  Well, nearly everyone wanted to hear the Jessica Jones panel from the American Sci-Fi & Fantasy Media Track.  This was one of the last panels of the entire convention, on Monday afternoon, and it was a packed house and a great discussion.

Jessica Jones: Dealing with Your Demons

Season Review. Based on the Alias comic book series, little-known hero Jessica Jones impacts the small screen with serious human issues - and a villain who can literally blow your mind.

We're back from Dragon Con!  And that means that it's time for Anomaly Supplemental to bring you some panel recordings!  Moderated by Sue and with KC as a panelist, this is Truly Outrageous! Female Heroes of Classic Sci-Fi.

The annual "Truly Outrageous" panel on the American Sci-Fi Classics Track at Dragon Con focuses on the women of classic sci-fi who influenced the panelists as children and young adults. It's always a convention highlight, the pride of the Classics Track Directors, and a good time, whether we all agree or not.

In this episode of Anomaly Supplemental, KC (Dragon Con Newbie) and Sue (Dragon Con Eternal Member) and joined by Gary Mitchel, the Co-Director of Dragon Con's American Sci-Fi Classics Track.  We discuss what makes Dragon Con different from many of the other big cons, talk about our panels, guests and events we're looking forward to, the community service aspect of the convention, and answer some of KC's n00b questions.  It may sound like we're doing a really long commercial for Dragon Con, but we just love it so much, and encourage everyone who is able to check it out at least once.

Recorded on Wednesday, August 24th.  Because we're currently at Dragon Con!

The annual "Truly Outrageous" panel on the American Sci-Fi Classics Track at Dragon Con focuses on the women of classic sci-fi who influenced the panelists as children and young adults. It's always a convention highlight, but this year was extra special...  While usually a fan panel, this year we were joined by the one and only Terry Farrell (Jadzia Dax of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) to discuss our favorite female heroes of classic sci-fi and discuss some of the bigger issues and questions surrounding the representation of women in science fiction.

This episode is another panel from Dragon Con 2013:  "Does a Contract negate Non-Consent?" That's a wordy one, but it's a panel from the WhedonUniverse Track, discussing the world of Joss Whedon's short-lived series Dollhouse starring Eliza Dushku.

Even though this discussion is more about the world of that Caroline, the actives, and the Dollhouse exist in, I do want to sound the spoiler alert for anyone who has not watched both seasons of the show.

Additionally, this panel gets into ethics, the philosophy of law, and the question of personhood, as well as topics like coercion, consent, bodily autonomy, violence, abuse, and even rape. So if you are uncomfortable listening to discussion of those topics, you might want to skip this one.
