Screen shot 2014-10-11 at 17.07.14As the UK is starting to feel the first low temperatures of the season we aim to misbehave… erm.. no, that’s not what I meant to write… force of habit… some words are just meant to be together… so… as I was typing, we aim to warm your heart by talking to two fantastic women who ran or are about to run two great events!

Our first interview was with Phillippa Paterson who was in charge of the 2014 Aberdeen CSTS, you can still view their web page here.

Then Odile got to chat with Mandy Rollins in the run up to the 2014 Browncoat Ball! For more info and tickets click here!

DSC_0163Welcome to our September show!

If you found us by the few postcards given out at the Discworld Con, LonCon and DragonCon this year – welcome to the Shindig!

In this show we chat with a returning Zac Pensol from Toyvault who is talking about and exciting new “Firefly” happening for them and while Wendy was attending DragonCon last month, she caught up with Serenity Richards from the SouthEastern Browncoats to find out the latest about them.

Big blog shout out to the newly formed group in Iceland, Vikings of the Verse, and you can follow them on Twitter at @NordicBrowncoat and you can find them on Facebook.

Our blog pic is from the dance routine during the Whedon Track’s The Avengers Ball which was fab and if you attend DragonCon next year. most heartedly recommend their party!  Also got to see Mikey Mason at one of his sets during the con and if you have the chance to see him live – go!

We play out this show to the new offering from the Big Damn Heroes Band, “Out of Gas” and there are some more photos from DragonCon 2014 at the bottom

Show 119: The One With Phonic FM

 

FF tribute nightA friend of mine asked if I was aware of a “Firefly Tribute Night” in Exeter on 30 August?  I said no, but immediately contacted the organiser, Lee Rawlings, to ask if he wanted to talk about it on the show.  He had an even better idea, and this show is that idea where I joined him, Mojo and Marcus for their show on Phonic FM talking about their event, Browncoats and SF in general.

You can find out more about the tribute night on their FB page here.  Wishing great success for the evening!

As always, we hope you will enjoy the show and if you do, you can leave comments here or on our Facebook page or Twitter.

Show 118: The Short Summer Show

CSTS Poster London 2014While we were recording in June and looking ahead, we both considered that it may be an idea to “rest” for August as we were both rather busy.  We thought the same thing in July, and no sooner agreed than, suddenly, there were things to talk about!

You would already have heard the first of those “things” with Wendy’s chat with Amy Pascale in our last show.  This is our main August show where we speak with Mark Madeley, organiser of the London CSTS 2014 on 4 October.  Tickets are available from here and you can find all details on his mightfineshindig.blogspot.co.uk

As well as that, Wendy talks about the unexpected Browncoat presence at the 2014 UK Discworld Convention and shamelessly plugs the panel that she is doing along with Les Howard, Kari Haley and Andy King at DragonCon.  If you are attending, please consider joining us as I’m sure it will be lively as we discuss our contribution into keeping The ‘Verse alive.  We are in the Chastain FG room at the Westin at 4pm on the Saturday.  The Whedonverse schedule can be found here.

Lastly, if you enjoyed following our “Firefly” RPG, please consider contributing to our GM, Ryan, fund-raising for Macmillan Cancer.  His Just Giving page is here.

As always, we hope you will enjoy the show and if you do, you can leave comments here or on our Facebook page or Twitter.

You can find our podcast on itunes, here is a direct link to our page.
