Gaming podcast The Real Basement Dwellers took some time aside to interview some of the top brass behind the operations of Lunacon. Like Podcasts? Want to learn more about how Lunacon happens from the perspective of its highest-level gamers? Check out the podcast! Chatter about Lunacon starts up at around the 14 minute mark, but it's preceded by some fun console wars nostalgia that video gamers will want to hang along for. Enjoy the interview, then come in later this month to enjoy the largest tabletop gaming library of a non-gaming-specific convention on the East Coast.
Update to the podcast: Since the recording, Lunacon has brought onboard New York Jedi and The New York Lightsaber Academy. See them at their Fan Table, keep yourself in shape with a mid-morning, Force-based workout, and check out their performance of excerpts from the original play, "The Jedi Macbeth".

Fans unite! Three other conventions, three future Worldcon bids, and four nearby organizations now have Confirmed Fan Tables in the Westchester Assembly (Meeting Level, see Floorplan for details). If you'd like for your group to have their own table representing them, it's easy to make a request for one! They're free for other conventions and for charitable organizations.
