Show 150: The One From The Browncoat Family Reunion

bfu-2016Welcome to the January Sending A Wave – and a milestone of the 150th show!

In December 2016, Wendy attended the 10th anniversary event for 2006’s now “fabled” B3 Back-Up Bash in Los Angeles.  As the event drew nearer, it was decided to rename it the “Browncoat Family Reunion” and I’m pleased to say that that was exactly what it felt like.

I was able to see old friends, and re-acquaint myself with fellow fans not seen for a decade.

Thanks to Drew and Sheelagh from the Alberta Browncoats for their quintessential Canadian hospitality by allowing me to roomshare; to Scott Atkins for not only reminding people of the 10th anniversary, but also being a chauffeur for part of the weekend; and to Greg and Suzanne Edmonson for coming out to see out us

Ron Glass: 1945 -2016

Ron Glass had an infectious laugh.

I know, as I heard it on a few occasions seeing him at cons.  He also had no problem with playfully chiding UK con attendees for only having the same questions or pauses.  I could see his point, we’d paid a lot of money to have him come a long way …

He unassumingly supported the Wooten Centre in Los Angeles.  The Hollywood Reporter carried a lovely piece about this which you can read, here.

You can donate directly to The Wooten Centre in memory of Mr Glass and full details are here.

He will be missed by the fan community.

Show 147: The One With Frima Studios

I did say there was more this month!

You’ve downloaded the game and sent Joss to clean out rubbish bins while having Kevin frima-studiosSmith chase after Nudy Judy countless times; so now listen to the team behind “Con Man – The Game”.

After a brief meeting at the “Con Man – The Game” launch party at DragonCon, I was able to get Charles Anthony, Jon and Eric together in a couple of rooms to talk about how they came to be part the project.

If you are interested in the other games Frima has produced or what to keep up to date with what they are up to, then you can follow them via Twitter, @FrimaStudios and Instagram.  Their English website is frimastudio.com and their French page is here.   They are on Facebook and LinkedIn.
