Friday, 7pm: 20 Years Later: Cardcaptor Sakura: Cardcaptor Sakura has returned with a new show after 18 years. Let's talk about the original show, how it holds up today, and what's changed since then. Panelists: Leona Thompson (mod), Devin Jackson Randall, Joshua Kronengold, Lisa Padol

Saturday, 3pm: Building Musical Bridges: There are several musical communities under the fannish umbrella: filkers, SCA bards, comedy musicians, and wizard rock, to name a few. What qualities do these communities have in common? How are they different? Can some of the conflicts that have arisen be bridged and misperceptions corrected? Panelists: T. J. Burnside Clapp (mod), Lisa Padol, Joshua Kronengold, Darren Zieger, Decadent Dave

Saturday, 7pm: The Music of the Late Jordin Kare, Rocket Scientist: In addition to his career as a physicist and aerospace engineer, Jordin Kare, who passed away in July 2017, was a songwriter and performer in the filk community. This special program will feature a selection of Jordin's best songs, including parodies, science songs, and his Pegasus Award-winning space anthem "Fire in the Sky". Participants: Emily Lewis, Bob Esty, Roberta Rogow, Dr H Paul Shuch (Dr. SETI), Tim Griffin, Harold Feld, Lisa Padol, Joshua Kronengold, Gary Ehrlich

Sunday, 7pm: Fictional Works of Fiction: From The King In Yellow to Camp Pining Hearts, fictional works of fiction have always been an essential part of, well, fiction.

Panelists: John Ashmead (mod), Scott Roche, Martin Berman-Gorvine, Darrell Schweitzer, Lisa Padol

Sunday 8pm: Concert: Josh Kronengold & Lisa Padol
