Long time no talk.
We just wanted to give everyone a heads up that there is lots going on behind the scenes for our new podcast. It’s taking a little bit longer than we planned to get started, but stay tuned here for new about our TV review podcast called Broadwaves. I will post all the link information here when we are ready to start our show discussions, so keep your eyes/feed active!
Also, on a personal note, I wanted to let everyone know about a couple of projects I’ve been working on in the meantime. The first is a podcast with the crew from Heroescast called Is Anybody Watching… We started with a review of the AMC show Into the Badlands and are now covering the show 11.22.63. If you are interested in a little bit of banter after you catch up with each episode of those shows, that’s what we do.
The second project I have been working on is voicework with Audioblivious Productions (which is run by one of my childhood friend’s husband who is a pretty talented guy). I have played a couple of roles for him and have had a blast doing so! Check it out if you like audio drama comedy.
Thanks for sticking with us!
We promised to keep yall updated on our new projects, so I thought I would share my latest podcast endeavor.
One of the shows I always enjoyed (and in fact created a podcast for in the past) was Heroes. This week they are rebooting the series starting five years after the events of the previous series and calling it Heroes Reborn.
At first I was skeptical, but I went to watch the webisode prequel online called Dark Matters and loved the premise. So, we got our The 9th: Heroescast group together, well a few of the group, and started a new podcast.
It will be mostly a roundtable discussion of the show with feedback and news we hear, but if you are interested in the show please come and listen/join in with us.
So I and a couple of mates went to London Super Comic Con last weekend. Lot of fun, well organised, got all the comics I took with me signed by the respective artists and writers I wanted to get the signatures of – and a very enjoyable panel to celebrate 10 years of a very sucessful comics podcast – Comic Geek Speak.
And I just happened to record the whole thing – which turned out to be handy as neither the con or CGS were recording the panel. I sent Pants (seriously) the link to my file this morning and it is already out as episode 1544 of Comic Geek Speak! That’s what I call a fast turn around! (And yes, they’ve been doing podcasts – a *lot* of podcasts for 10 years, all for free and all very in depth with the knowledge of Comics)
Something my comic reading buddies and I have been planning to do is make our own comics related (‘cos we don’t just chat about comics) podcast that essentially will feature the often amusing and entertaining chats in the pub every Saturday before or after going to the comic shop (Comic Connections in Banbury) – basically just your average Brit comics buyers shooting the shit in the pub (hey, the Irish Pubcast do it, so why can’t we – theirs is very good BTW)
We’re calling the planned ‘cast AlcoComics Annonymous. I’ll post when we get the first proper episode out 🙂
So, here is the link to the CGS panel – recorded with my Zoom H4 basically just plonked on their table, so it’s not terrific quality, but you can hear most of what is going on and I did ask a technical question regarding editing – I’m with Pants Philiosophy on that one 🙂
Oh and as well as CGS, I got a bumper for AlcoComics Annonymous from Garth Ennis. Yes Mr Garth “Preacher” Ennis. Who was great BTW and signed my 1st 3 issues of Hitman. Been reading his stuff a long time and it was a genuine pleasure. (Preacher BTW, if you don’t know, is simply one of the best graphic novel series ever made (originally single issues, but available as 10 trade paperbacks). I rate it as highly as Warren Ellis’ Transmetropolitan, Alan More’s Watchmen and Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. It is a comic epic you simply *need* to read if you like comics.)
So I guess we’d better make this bloody AlcoComics Annonymous ‘cast 🙂
Sending a Wave Bonus Show – Jan 2015
Wendy over at Sending a Wave has just posted their Jan 2015 Bonus Show, which is a recording from DragonCon 2014 of the “Fans Are Doing It For Themselves” panel.
As well as Wendy the other panellists were myself, Les and Kari, thanks to Wendy for recording and sharing this.
Just letting you know that I’m writing a new audio drama, but this one is unrelated to Firefly, and unrelated to the Signal.
The audio drama will be called “Quantum Leap: The Impossible Dream”. It’s a series. It will air on The Quantum Leap Podcast. Albie says the first episode should air before the 15th.
And as you might have guessed from the title, it’s a spinoff from Quantum Leap: new leaper, new adventures.
