NerdHQ’s 2014 Conversation for a Cause Panel list leaks online

Joss Whedon Conversations for a Cause NerdHQ

The first phase of the 2014 NerdHQ Conversations for a Cause leaked online today, and we’ve got those details.


Zachary Levi’s NerdHQ has become a staple of the San Diego Comic-Con since premiering in 2011. One of my favorite parts of what NerdHQ brings to the table is their “Conversations for a Cause” series. The most popular panels at the Convention Center are held in massive caves of rooms, but at NerdHQ, they are much more intimate affairs. And while they are ticketed events, the entirety of the proceeds go to Operation Smile, a Virginia-based (yeah!) charity that does incredible work.

The Conversations are always put together at the last-minute, as the NerdHQ team has to wait until after the official SDCC schedule is announced to confirm their offerings. This year, though, it seems that the schedule is taking longer to put together. 2013’s first announcements were on the Monday nine days in advance of the Con, but NerdHQ still hasn’t been able to make their list official.

This afternoon, however, some of that schedule was posted on the website for Brown Paper Tickets, the vendor that handles the ticketing for the panels. As of this posting, that schedule was pulled down, but we were able to capture it in the meantime. All of this data is obviously unconfirmed at this point, and is likely to change. Also, if the messaging was to believed, it looks like tickets will likely go on sale this Sunday.

Levi and David Coleman said on the SDConCast Thursday evening that they would be adding more panels after the first release (they also confirmed that Nathan Fillion would be back, even though he’s not listed bellow). They also say the schedule is pretty full, which again indicates that this list is incomplete.

  1. Wow – they frakked up? HA! Whoopsies. Not a lot of goodness at this point, I hope it’s better when official!

  2. Damn, I’m going to be on a flight back home when Joss is there. Good thing I’ve already met him before or I would be devastated, haha.

  3. Are the tickets being sold yet? I got the nerd hq app and so far it has been completely useless.

    • As I mentioned above, the messaging on the website at the time indicated that the tickets would go on sale Sunday. My guess is we’ll see an official announcement Saturday noon.

  4. Tickets go on sale starting SAT at noon then another at 12:30 and announced throughout the day according to an email they received…some people don’t even see the schedule on the app as of now…that kinda defeats purpose of downloading it??

    • On sale Saturday at noon, or announced Saturday noon? My guess is the later.

  5. Saturday at noon for SPECIFIC panels…and every 1/2 hour thereafter…info on their Nerd HQ app
