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.

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

This month Wendy speaks with Steve Barnett (@sine_cera_carp) about how he is helping keeping The ‘Verse alive through his hip flasks available via his store on Etsy – https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/SineCeraCarpentry and also to Natalie Jones, one of the organizers for CSTS Wales who are kicking off 2014’s Can’t Stop The Serenity season with their event in Blackwood on 14 April.  All details can be found on their website http://cstswales.webs.com/

We also very briefly talk about our second “Firefly” RPG play and at some point, if Ryan (our GM) can stop showing us how wonderfully creative he is not only in his game devising, but also with the incredible props for the game he makes, he will be editing the full play we recorded and it will be released on our feed if you wish to hear just how we got on.
