On July 2nd, 1776, the second continental congress voted to declare the independence of the American colonies from the kingdom of Great Britain. Two days later, the congress approved the declaration of independence. A few years after that, David, Joe, Luke, and Matt started the PodgeCast, an exercise in our liberties.
Happy Independence Day to all our American listeners.
The Parsec Awards are dedicated to rewarding excellence in various aspects of Speculative Fiction Podcasting. Founded by Mur Lafferty, Michael R. Mennenga, and Tracy Hickman, the list of available categories includes Best Gaming Podcast, for which the PodgeCast has been nominated.
Podcast shows are nominated by fans, and finalists are chosen by a yearly steering committee. Those finalists are then voted on by an independent panel of judges from outside of podcasting. As part of the process, we had to submit a sample of our show during the eligible period (for us, that was episodes 1 through 39). If you’d like to hear more about the Parsecs, you can listen to their promo.
We hope you can join us at Dragon*Con when we claim our Best Podcast trophy (either from the Parsec people or the chump who wins when his back is turned—we could use the extra muscle). Wish us luck!
