Ignite Phoenix No. 15's Official Presenter Lineup Announced
Hot dudes sporting cosplay gear, acrobatic "flow ninjas" leaping over fences, bookworms obsessing over Jane Austen tomes, and hipster haberdashers looking decidedly snazzy. So is this the bizarre cast of characters you'll find starring in one of the fall television season's newest shows? Negatory. Instead, it's just a small sample of the wide array of subject matter that will be delved into during Ignite Phoenix No. 15 next month.

The organizers of the ongoing locally focused discussion series officially announced late last week which presentations would fill the 18 slots at the event, which is happening on Friday, October 18, at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. And, as with essentially every other Ignite Phoenix that's occurred since its debut in 2009, the lineup is equal parts eclectic, unusual, and interesting.
After eyeballing the official list of presentations that will be made at Ignite Phoenix No. 15, which was posted on Friday afternoon, there's arguably a little something for pretty much everyone. Tech-oriented topics like NASA, foodie interests, geek obsessions, and art-oriented subjects will all be featured during bite-size symposiums lasting no more than five minutes apiece.
Given the short timespan of each, the speakers are generally energetic and the mood can be a little manic as they breezily and enthusiastically dish on their passions and obsessions in life like beekeeping, swing dancing, or mural painting.
What else will presenters be talking about? A complete rundown of Ignite Phoenix No. 15's presenters follows.
