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.

Here in the UK, ALS is better known as motor-neurone disease (MND), but some of our Whedonverse alumni have been challenged – and accepted:

Take Back the Sky to Appear at 2014 Pittsburgh Comicon

Originally posted on Take Back the Sky:

By now Comic-Con International is already in full swing in San Diego, and while Take Back the Sky wasn’t lucky enough to make it out to the world’s biggest, most famous festival celebrating all that is great about geekdom this year, we are happy to say that we won’t be staying on the bench for the entire convention season!

ComiconLogo_1_copy

It has been confirmed that Take Back the Sky will be in attendance at the Pittsburgh Comicon again this year.  The 2014 Pittsburgh Comicon will be held September 26-28 at the Monroeville Convention Center, and Take Back the Sky will have a table at the con where Browncoats, space enthusiasts and anyone else who’d like to support the cause can stop by, sign our petition and learn about other ways they can convince Elon Musk and SpaceX to name their first Dragon V2 capsule Serenity.

We won’t be reprising our Browncoats…

Show 116: The One About Leicester and Grande Prairie

Welcome to a currently hot and humid UK!

Already over half of the year has gone and we are well into CSTS 2014.

Odile and I attended the Leicester event earlier in this month and although we spoke with a number of people, time restraints meant that we have only included a couple – sorry!  It was a fabulous event and full marks to Tabbie and her team for all their work on the day.

We also reconnect with Nyssa from the 28th Fighting Swans way, way, way up in the Great WhiteNorth, Grande Prairie, Alberta who fills us in as to the current happenings as to her third CSTS event on 28 September.  If you can support them in any way, you can connect with them via their Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/Fighting28

We are also pleased to learn that there will be a London CSTS event this year in October at The Mad Hatter Pub and you can find all details on their website, here.  We hope to be able to attend and may be we will see you there!  As always, keep up to date with any new CSTS events via cantstoptheserenity.com – click on “find an event”.

We were contacted by John Mullaney (Serenity cut-away artist, still available via QMx; @jonnymakesjam) with a new “Firefly”-inspired song by a friend of his and we’re including it because we think it is very funny and hope you will too.

Now that the Whedonverse Track schedule is available on their website – yet another shameless plug for the “Fans Are Doing It For Themselves” panel on Saturday, 4pm in the International DE room.  Please join Wendy, Mike Dougherty (“Browncoats: Redemption), Les, Kari and Andy (The Signal podcast) as we talk about our efforts to keep The ‘Verse alive.

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.

Of course you can also download the show directly from here! Or listen to us on PLayerFM by clicking here!
