The Nerd Machine has started announcing their first wave of panels for their 5th annual “Conversations for a Cause” at Nerd HQ, which will once again be at the New Children’s Museum.

The schedule includes Zachary Levi, Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion, Stephen Amell, cast members of Teen Wolf, Supernatural, Orphan Black, ColonyDrunk HistoryWorkaholicsCon Man, and more. [UPDATE] The second wave of conversations include the men of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Scott Bakula, Robot Chicken, a second Stephen Amell and Zachary Levi panel, and more.

As with years past, we can likely expect panels to be added as we get closer to the convention, and we will update this post accordingly. In fact, in years past, Conversation panels were added DURING the convention itself, so be sure to keep an eye out.

Tickets for Conversations will go on sale through BrownPaperTickets.com, for $22 each. [UPDATE] The second wave of tickets have an on-sale date of Monday, July 18.
