WCA 2019: Nerdist / Geek & Sundry head to WonderCon Anaheim this weekend

Panels and live presentations of a number of the shows that Nerdist and G&S put on will be represented, including NERDIST NEWS with Jessica Chobot, RELICS & RARITIES featuring MARVEL’S DAREDEVIL‘s Deborah Ann Woll, and their latest hit show, VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE, which will present their first ever live episode presentation, right there on that there stage.
