The Speakeasy: The main podcast where we discuss what we’ve been watching, reading, and playing, plus occasional other topics.

Jul 25, 2014

We talk in-depth about panel preparations thanks to us being fully immersed in our own panels for upcoming Otakon 2014. We tackle the topic from many angles starting with the decision to run a panel, then on to submitting to a convention, then of course to the intense creation of the presentation. At the end, we also talk about troubleshooting and worst case scenarios. We hope this will be a helpful guide, but we are still learning a lot about doing panels ourselves!

And now your helpful bartenders at The Speakeasy present your drink:


  • 1 oz vodka
  • 1 oz rum
  • 1 oz gin
  • 1 oz Southern Comfort peach liqueur
  • 4 oz orange juice
  • 1 oz amaretto almond liqueur
  • 1 oz grenadine syrup

Mix all ingredients in tin over ice. Strain into shot glasses and enjoy!
