Appearance: DRS Ep. 80 – The Philippa Ballantine Interview

I know I said to go over to the Dead Robots’ Society website to subscribe, but I had to include this episode in my feed. Last week I had the opporunity to interview Philippa Ballantine, our own Gloria Platt (and oh yeah, an author that just got a publshing deal with Ace Books!).  Enjoy.

Dragon*Con 2010

Dragon*Con is next weekend. This will be my fifth straight year attending, and the fourth doing panels on the Podcasting track. Here are the panels I will be on, plus a couple of events I’ll be attending. I hope you can come out and join us crazy podcasters in Atlanta!

  • Thursday, Sept. 2nd, 7:30 pm – Star Party 2010 – This is a special event the day before Dragon*Con officially begins, a charity event for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The event will be hosted by renowned astronomers and hosts of AstronomyCast, Pamela Gay and Fraser Cain with special appearance by musician George Hrab. (I’m just attending. I’ll be the one looking for extra drink tickets :-) ).
  • Friday, Sept. 3rd, 1:00 pm – Podcasting Track Kick-off Panel – I’m honored to be part of the kick-off panel for the track; my primary goal is to remain calm while being at a table with Tom Merritt, Veronica Belmont, Bobby Blackwolf, Len Peralta, and Brian Ibbott. (Did I mention Veronica Belmont?)
  • Saturday, Sept. 4th, 10:00 am – Podcast Authors Roundtable – with Scott Sigler, Gail Z. Martin, Michael A. Stackpole, Christiana Ellis, and Gabrielle Harbowy
  • Saturday, Sept. 4th, 4:00 pm – 5th Annual Parsec Awards – I’ll be attending and presenting two awards. Gabrielle Harbowy’s Tales of the Children story “Swimming Lessons” is up for the Best Speculative Fiction Story (Short Form), and The Dead Robots’ Society is up for Best Podcast about Speculative Fiction Content Creation.
  • Sunday, Sept. 5th, 2:30 pm – Dead Robots’ Society Live!
  • Sunday, Sept. 5th, 7:00 pm – Geek Radio Weekly Live! – I’ll be in attendance, but have been known to crash the party…

As always, it is sure to be a blast. If you are attending, please stop me and say hi (and yes, I’ll have books for sale if you have been waiting to buy it at D*C!!).

DragonCon 2010 – Podcasting Track Kickoff Panel

I was on the kickoff panel at Dragon*Con 2010 for the podcasting track. I got to sit next to Veronica Belmont on the panel, so everything else after this was just gravy. Just kidding of course. Lovely lady, and one of my favorite podcasters out there. Please visit Dragon*Pod for more audio from the podcasting track of 2010.

This panel also featured the diverse talents of: Tom Merritt (Sword and LaserTech News Today), Veronica Belmont (QoreSword and Laser), Len Peralta (Jawbone RadioGeek a Week), Brian Ibbott (Coverville) and Bobby Blackwolf (The Bobby Blackwolf Show).
