Show 154: The One About the Browncoat Ball 2017

Browncoat Ball 2017I am so very pleased to welcome back Matt Black to the show to talk about 2017 Browncoat Ball which is being held in Gettysburg, PA, 11 – 13 August.

As longstanding “Firefly fans are aware, Joss Whedon has often cited the novel, “The Killer Angels” (which is about the Battle of Gettysburg) as one of the inspirations for the show.

If listening to Matt has whetted your appetite for attending (and I do hope it has!), you can find all information about how to buy your ticket, how to book your accommodation and details of the Ball’s events at their website, www.browncoatball.com, or their Facebook page, and you can keep track of them also via Twitter and Instagram.

As always, I hope you will enjoy the show and if you do, you can leave comments here or on our Facebook page or Twitter.

You can find our podcast on iTunes, here is a direct link to our page.

Of course you can also download the show directly from here. Or listen to the show on PLayerFM by clicking here.  We can also be found on Stitcher.com here.  If none of those are for you, then you will always be able to listen to the latest show via soundcloud.com here.

Show 145: The One From DragonCon 2016 and Sean Faust

Was a bit quiet in September and anyone who has been to DragonCon knows that it takes a little while to recover from a DragonCon …

For the October show, I chat with the 76th Battalion prior to their marching in the annual DragonCon parade and you can keep up with them on their Facebook page, here.

I also chatted with Serenity Richards, from the South Eastern Browncoats in the closing a0046546949_2hours of the con catching up on their activities.  They are a great group to link into and have a brilliant line of fan merchandise and their website is here.  They are also on Facebook, here.

Lastly, Sean Faust and I chatted about cabbages and kings (which was mostly cut – sorry!) but mainly about his new song with Mikey Mason, “A Man Named Jayne” which you can buy via Bandcamp, here; Sean’s website is here; his Facebook page is here.

Incoming news; the location of the Browncoat Ball 2017 has been chosen and it will be held in historic Gettysburg, PA!  Congratulations to the organisers.  The Browncoat Ball 2017 Facebook page is here, The Browncoat Ball Facebook page is here and the website is here.

Joss Whedon is coming to the Alamo Drafthouse in South Lamarr, Austin TX on 14 October!  He is taking part in a Q & A earlier in the evening with local singer, Shawnee Kilgore, about their musical collaboration AND he’s staying to introduce a screening of “SERENITY” at 22:30 the same evening.  Full details about the “SERENITY” screening can be found here.

Of course, I can’t finish this without saying “congratulations” to Alan and Charissa Tudyk who got married last weekend.

Of course you can also download the show directly from here. Or listen to the show on PLayerFM by clicking here.  We can also be found on Stitcher.com here.  If none of those are for you, then you will always be able to listen to the latest show via soundcloud.com here.

Screen shot 2014-10-11 at 17.07.14As the UK is starting to feel the first low temperatures of the season we aim to misbehave… erm.. no, that’s not what I meant to write… force of habit… some words are just meant to be together… so… as I was typing, we aim to warm your heart by talking to two fantastic women who ran or are about to run two great events!

Our first interview was with Phillippa Paterson who was in charge of the 2014 Aberdeen CSTS, you can still view their web page here.

Show 83: The One With Added Tea

Tea and podcasting... how british of us!

November is here and we bring you our show for the month.

We continue Odile’s interviews/chats with fellow Browncoats at this year’s Browncoat Ball, including Matt Black and the organisers of next year’s ball!

We also remind you all about the Whedon Winter Ball in Gloucester, UK in December and then realise that neither of us have anymore news…

Both of us want to say “thanks” to Phil Towle for all the fab work he’s doing on our behalf with this page – believe me, neither of us would have done this!

Enjoy!

Show 81: The One That’s Pretty Short

Welcome to our September show!

The night’s are now drawing in, the leaves are falling from the trees, but we are trying to keep some notion of an indian summer by talking about the Beeston Browncoats wedding in August, the Browncoats of Gloucester’s trip to the London Equality Now offices, Odile’s forthcoming trip to the Browncoat Ball (not too late for tickets), but do jump to the end of the year when we mention the Whedon Winter Ball.

You can buy your ticket for the Whedon Winter Ball at www.bigdamnfanevents.co.uk.  If you want to listen to the music of John Mullaney’s band, “The Last Picture Show” ahead of the Ball, you can stream from www.myspace.com/lastpictureshowuk.

Lastly, did you attend B3 in December 2006?  Or help organise?  Would you be happy to speak with us about your experience for the forthcoming show?  I hope so, please contact us at sendingawave@gmail.com.
