NW NERD gathers a panel of perspectives on dating and relationships. Is it possible to date in a small cosplay community? How can you get a partner more involved in your comic con passion? And what's the deal with Seattle / Northwest men? Harris O'Malley (aka Dr. Nerdlove), Jay Edidin, and Stacy Rost with Single Living Seattle weigh in. 

News about Game of Thrones showrunners getting into the Star Wars franchise, just in time for the new "Solo" trailer -- what can be assumed after watching that. Also, Washington state's attorney general is suing an East Coast man who used bots to buy concert and sports tickets out from under locals.  

Special report: Nick and Dyer discuss a controversy at a Northwest convention after it changed its dress codes and costume standards. Why attendees were not happy with the way the new codes were presented, and why the convention felt the need to make the change in the first place.
