Show 135: The One About The Big Damn British Shindig and Comics

Big Damned British ShindigHello from an unseasonably warm UK.

Welcome to the January show – the first of  2016, and I hope that everyone has recovered from “STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS”?!

As I said in the December show, I’m talking about the “Leaves on the Wind” comic series from Dark Horse.  This was something that wasn’t talked about in any depth on their release, so it’s nice to revisit.

I also speak with Sarae Bettany and Steffani Benton about The Big Damn British Shindig which is scheduled for the UK August Bank Holiday weekend (that’s the weekend before DragonCon!) in Penzance, Cornwall.  If you’re interested in attending (I know I am!) you can visit their website, here, for tickets.

As always, I 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!

Join me in February.

Take care

“Spectrum” comic

Spectrum comic coverA short note from PJ Haarsma regarding the “Spectrum” comic:

Spectrum Comic from Con Man
Hello everyone! I am so excited to start sharing with you the Spectrum comic that you helped create. Did you know that free, physical copies will be available at your local comic book store during Free Comic Book Day? Yep, Spectrum is one of the selected comics BUT you need to call them and ask them to order you a copy this week.  It would help us a lot and make them aware of Spectrum. Free Comic Book Day is on May 7th this year. Here is a handy store locator to find one near you:
Click here for the Comic Book Store Locator here.

Spectrum is on page 39 of the Previews book from Automatic Publishing. (If they ask you!)

And, here is a little taste of the first three pages! We will send you a digital version of the whole book when it’s ready in May. Don’t forget to call and thank you!

Click here for Spectrum’s first three pages.

Enjoy!

Lots of love,
PJ Haarsma

Odile

Yes, if you have already listened to the latest show; yes, it is true – I’m afraid that Odile has left the podcast.

I want to thank her for the past almost six years for all the contribution she has made to the success of the podcast and I know she will be greatly missed.

It means that for the time being, I will be continuing alone, and so although there will be some changes – mostly show length, it is my intention to continue to focus on the fandom, so it will be pretty much the same content you have come to expect from the podcast.

I hope that you will stay with me as our journey is far from over!

Stay shiny!

Wendy

Show 133: The One with the Shadow Gamers

Welcome to our November show!

IMG_2949This month we fulfil a promise to Toyvault and play their new “Firefly” board game, “Fistful of Credits”, and we also spoke with Jocelyn Fischer, Executive Producer of the new fan film, “Shadows on the Wind”.

We are pleased to say that John Mullaney (Serenity cutaway artist) and Gareth Cooper (writer and singer of “It’s Not About Politics”) joined us to play “Fistful of Credits” and talk about what they’re up to.

Must admit that we approached the game like buying furniture from IKEA, so we really were playing it as we went along. We managed to get the rudiments of the game fairly quickly for a basic play. This is a great game for something like a shindig, or a meet up where you’re not time luxurious or you don’t have a lot of space. It looks good, it’s a lot of fun, and I hope that you’ll consider buying it once you see it.

In case you don’t know, “Shadows on the Wind” currently has an Indiegogo campaign (16 days left!) and they are looking for your support, here. We were so pleased that Jocelyn was able to speak with us from Afghanistan and go into depth about their campaign. Very much looking forward to catching up with them again once they have the project finished.  Please watch their campaign video below.

Lastly, Odile bids us a fond farewell as real life affirms itself.

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 132: The One from CSTS London

IMG_1414 (2)Odile and Wendy make it to a 2015 CSTS event!

We had such plans for this year, Odile was hoping to get to Edinburgh, Wendy had planned to attend Beeston, but unfortunately, life got in the way and the only one we were able to attend was the London event in early October.

It was a fabulous venue along Regent’s Canal and Sue and her team organised a great event.

I must point out that due to the lovely weather, Odile and I decided to take advantage and recorded outside and so there is a lot of background noise.

Wendy also caught up with Annie from CSTS North Texas to chat about their event which took place in late September.

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.
