Episode 050 Sneak Preview

July 9th, 2009 · 6 Comments

While our official one-year anniversary was July 7th, it is traditional to celebrate episodes 50, 100, etc. as milestones in the course of a podcast’s life—especially given how many podcasts never make it to episodes 50, 100, etc. Monday, July 20th arrives with our 50th official episode (not counting so much of the bonus content we deliver on Thursdays).

To whet your appetite, here is a sample of episode 50 (as well as a retrospective of the previous 49).

We hope you enjoy.

TPC is Nominated for a Parsec Award!

June 25th, 2009 · 5 Comments

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!

For our show releasing Monday, April 20th, you’re in for a rare treat. Matt is in St. Louis! His job in the Grand Canyon is done and we don’t have a specific date on when he’s shipping out again. That means he gets to record with Adam/David and Luke! That means he gets to participate!

Behold the Wild Matt in his native habitat. He’s a rugged beast with a peculiar mating call.
