We are thrilled to announce that The Prancing Pony Podcast has been invited to take part in Mythmoot V as guests! We will be broadcasting a LIVE episode from the conference on Saturday, June 23 — but we won’t just be two guys with a mic walking around and trying to find people to talk to during a fan convention. Instead, as guests, we will be on stage in the plenary room as the only event in our time slot — and, during the 90 minutes we’ll be broadcasting, we’ll be joined by both Corey Olsen and John Garth!
This is a truly exciting opportunity — not just for The Prancing Pony Podcast, but for our listeners! Those of you interested in going to Mythmoot were just given yet another reason to attend — to meet us and appear on the show! And those of you who aren’t able to go this year are now able to live vicariously through us as we will not only be bringing you a live episode, but also will do spontaneous live broadcasts throughout the weekend.
But we’re going to need your help to make this work. When we started our Patreon campaign during the summer, we’d hoped that we would eventually get to the $1,000/month level — it would take several months at that point for us to have the revenue for the two of us to travel to, and attend, one of these events. Well, we’re still only about 2/3 of the way to that level — and we need you to help make this happen, since MMV is in just five months. If you’re already supporting us on Patreon, thank you — but if you’ve yet to sign on to The Fellowship of the Podcast, we’d ask you to please consider helping us reach that goal. Even though we no longer have to pay to attend the event, we still have round-trip airfare and lodging expenses to consider and those are not insignificant.
Shawn says it’s my turn to write a Prancing Pony Pondering this week, but instead of giving you 20 pages of my ramblings, I’m actually going to take this opportunity to update all of you on what’s been happening here at The Prancing Pony Podcast and — more exciting, I’m sure — what will be happening over the coming months. Please be sure to comment, or ask questions that you may have, in the comments below.
Where We’ve Been
Just a bit over six months ago, I wrote our ‘birthday’ post, celebrating the one-year anniversary of The Prancing Pony Podcast. At that time, we talked about a few of the plans we had for the PPP in its second year. Specifically, we had five exciting things to share, so it’s time for a report card!
Just in time for our Patreon campaign which launched July 5, here’s a pretty stroke of fortune: a chance for Alan and Shawn to show their quality!
That’s right, we have new Outtakes up from our last few episodes! We offer The Simpsons impressions, Shawn fails to grasp a basic time travel concept, and more… including the return of Alan’s ancient nemesis.
The newest outtakes are on page 4, starting from #34. Or view all of them starting here, and check back regularly for more laughs at our expense!
We need your sword, your bow, your axe! Come and join the Fellowship of the Podcast by becoming a patron on Patreon! You’ll have a chance to help us do more for our listeners, and at the same time, get great rewards like bonus episodes, signed postcards, T-shirts, and chances to join us live on the Prancing Pony Podcast!
