A 101 style introduction to kink, BDSM, and the meaning of life. Well, maybe not the last one. Come learn about what all the letters stand for and talk about what 50 Shades of Grey got right and what was just plain wrong.  This panel will cover the basics of BDSM, from definitions, to consent, to finding and exploring your local scene, and basic safety. Ages 18 and up.

Fan Guest
To say that I enjoy podcasting and new media would be a gross understatement. My credits include mentions in high school and collegiate papers, newspapers, Podcasting for Dummies, and Advanced Podcasting Tricks. I have been called an innovator, having created the first fandom podcast (RotO), the first podcast for an Independent Wrestling Federation (Halo: Hardwired), and distributed the first comic book made available via podcast feed (Podcast 9). I was the force behind the official Troma Podcast and a former host/editor of the 501stCast, the official podcast of the 501st Stormtrooper Legion. I produced the long running Amazing Pulp Adventures Radio Show starring Mister Adventure, serving as writer and primary voice actor for recorded and live stage versions. I have done commercial voice work as the voice of CRASH, SWE and GOUGE Wrestling, Volaris phone systems, Howards RV and Fit Family NC (also providing puppeteering). I have MC'd numerous conventions and events, host/creator of Thinkin' While you're Drinkin' Trivia, am the house MC for Succubus Sorority, Riot Kittens and Nerd-Vana Burlesque under the pseudonym Richie Muenster. Between the podcasts, requested voices from other shows, father of 3, various audio sketches and dramas have been heard on ChronoRadio, Star Wars and Beyond, SwitchedOn Show, the Geeklabel Podcast and Dragon Pages' Wingin' It syndicated show, (plus countless guest appearances on other shows) of which I am very...
