Show 130: The One From Two Continents

Browncoats FranceHello all!

We have a nice bundle for you all to listen to this month!

Both Odile and Wendy spoke with Laura and Sylvain from Browncoats France about their CSTS event on 10 October.  This is only the second CSTS event to have been organised in Paris, and they need our assistance with funding as I’m sure we can all appreciate that each country has their own regulations when it comes to public buildings.  They recently launched an Indiegogo campaign which you can go directly to here and even if you could only support them with 1 Euro …?  They also have their website, Browncoats.fr (how fabulous is that domain?!), Facebook page, and Twitter, @BrowncoatsFr.

Wendy spoke with Nyssa of the 28th Fighting Swans, Grande Prairie, Alberta in Canada about their preparations for their CSTS event for 2015.

Our last chat for this show is with the Toyvault team behind their new “Firefly” board game, A Fist Full of Credits.  We think this will be a great way to either kick off or add to any shindig due to its fairly short game play.  Once the game is available at your local gaming/science-fiction/convention dealer outlet – let us know what you think.

We also thank both Stuart McKay and Robert Moore for their virtual cups of coffee and tea this month.

If you are a “Con Man” contributor, don’t forget to respond to the second Pledge Manager email you would have recently received!

And lastly, this came through hours after recording; all congratulations to Alan Tudyk who is currently shooting the first of the stand-alone “STAR WARS” films, “ROGUE ONE” here in the UK.

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!

Lastly, if you have liked what you have heard, please consider donating a virtual cup of coffee or pint of beer to us via our donate button on the right-hand side.

Join us in September.

11048737_10153253157795067_8083610095053680812_nWelcome to the July show and I’m back from my travels, and Odile is finishing her school year!

I had a simply marvellous time meeting Browncoats in at the Supanova Sydney Comic Con and we will hear from Jen Cummings (New Melbourne Browncoats and CSTS) and Kirsty from the Adelaide Browncoats.  Thank you for speaking with me.  Jen has also started a Browncoats Downunder FB group, so if any Browncoats are travelling to Australia post there to let them know and hopefully fans can meet!

I also spoke with Kerry at Shipper Haven about her fab “Castle”/”Serenity” tee shirt, as well as her other tees.  You can find them all on her FB page here.

We also spoke with Graeme from the Edinburgh Browncoats (FB group here, CSTS tickets here or you can make a donation!)

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.

Gareth Cooper: “Not About Politics”

Long-time listeners will know that quite a while ago, we included a fabulous song, “Not About Politics” by Gareth Cooper in one our our shows.

I’m pleased to say that there is now a video to go with it and it is as great as the song is.

Thank you, Gareth, for letting us play it.

May Bonus Show: The One About “Con Man”

May the fourth be with you

Five words for you:  Alan Tudyk and PJ Haarsma.

We are very grateful to them to take some time out while location scouting to speak with us about “Con Man”, how cons have PJ and Alan Con Manchanged, one of the largest shopping malls in England, fans in Dubai, smoothies and artisan cheese.

Our huge thanks to them and Jasper at RedbearTV for his deft co-ordination.

Now that the Indigogo campaign is finished; you can keep up to date with all the “Con Man” happenings via their Facebook page and Twitter (@ConManSeries).  To assist them with the ongoing awareness for the project, PJ and his team have created all sorts of social media images for everyone to use – this link will take you to their FB post and you can use the link contained there.  Don’t forget that they still want to see how creative fans are with art, fan fiction (no higher than PG-13!), bakes (yes, I think there’s a new Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood BBC series there – “The Great Fandom Bake Off”)

Although we didn’t have time to bring it up, we are very pleased to learn that “Firefly”, “Dr Horrible” and “Much Ado About Nothing” alum, Shawna Trpcic, is part of the production team.

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.

Suzanne Edmonson and unofficial website for “Firefly Online”

If you are in or visiting the Pasadena area until 16 June, Suzanne Edmonson (wife of Greg) is exhibiting her artwork at the Playhouse 7, The Pasadena Arthouse ’15.  We’re sending our congratulations and you can view Suzanne’s work at www.suzanneedmonson.com

During this week, we had a fabulous email fly into our inbox regarding, “Shindig” which is a new, albeit unofficial, website dedicated to the forthcoming “Firefly Online” game.  If you’ve been regularly playing the Cortex app and are looking for conversation, then Shindig is going to be the place for you to discuss all aspects of the app, game developments, etc, etc.  So if this is taking your fancy then head over to their website and join in the discussion!

We’ve got our big May bonus show coming up soon – don’t think you’ll want to miss it.

Wendy
