The Talks:

 

“Unlucky Rabbit’s Year: How the Aztecs Prepare for the End of the World” by Kevin Garcia
While the rest of the world thought 2012 would be the end of everything, the Maya people knew it was just another year. However, the Aztecs believed that a particular new year cycle could bring about great disaster – and that time is fast approaching!

Kevin Garcia is a teacher, Marvel Comics researcher, and co-creator of comic books about Mesoamerican heroes.

 

“Hare Raising Tails from Across the Bunnyverse” by Mickey Delp
Let’s go down the rabbit hole and dig up some weird and wondrous bunny lore from around the globe and across time.

Mickey Delp is an engineer, maker, teacher, entrepreneur, raconteur, and one of the Nerd Nite Austin bosses.
