TPC is Nominated for a Parsec Award!

June 25th, 2009 · Joe · 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!

    Congrats! Fingers crossed.

    On a sad note, Ivan my Ipod is no more. Still figuring out what I’m going to do for future podgelistening. :(

    This isn’t really the nomination period- it is, but everyone is on this list if so. After the clip shows all go in, they choose the actual finalists who are the “real” nominees.

    Meg, ya, we know.

    Some of us are a little gun-shy about awards and we’re making fun as much as we can. ;)
