What is Podfication?
An informal convention for podfic creators and listeners! Join us in Minneapolis for our third year of hanging out, discussion, and recording.

When and where is this thing?
October 20th & 21st, 2018 at the Geek Partnership Society's Event Horizon community center. (1121 Jackson St NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413)

So kind of like a convention?
Exactly like a convention! But our events take place at the Geek Partnership Society's community center rooms rather than in a conventional hotel.

Why Minneapolis? Isn't Minnesota COLD?
Because that's where Bess and Jo live. And look, it's PROBABLY not going to snow in October. Probably. (Also, more seriously, we have direct access to facilities and resources here, and autumn in the Midwest is actually very lovely.)

So where am I going to stay?
The Event Horizon center is a convenient bus ride from downtown Minneapolis, which has many hotels. There may also be some locals who can accommodate a few people, at their discretion. We encourage finding roommates and renting some local Airbnb's within walking distance of the venue, which has worked out wonderfully the last couple years! You can check the Lodgings Finder post to help find roommates for the weekend.

Geek Community Center, huh? That sounds kind of neat.
Yes! And it is! We have access to three rooms, one that has some comfy couch seating for hanging out and chatting, one for recording that's as sound isolated as we can manage, and one that can be used for panels. We also have access to a small kitchenette.

But let us manage your expectations a bit. There isn't much within walking distance of it. The ceilings are high, and it's right next to railroad tracks. The building is shared with other groups so sound can and will bleed between the rooms and from outside. It's not perfect, especially for recording, but it is a space we can all gather and talk about all things podfic for a reasonable cost!

I have a question about accessibility.
We want to accommodate any accessibility needs that we can! You can find our accessibility guide here. If you have any concerns or questions, please reach out to us.

Are you gonna talk about the *whispers* fanfictions?
You bet we are. And since those discussions can be of a mature nature, we ask that attendees are 18 years of age or older. Children under age 1 are welcome in the con space as long as they are attended by their parent/guardian since they are unlikely to be adversely affected by discussions around the nuances of the omegaverse, MPREG, and the one where they're shrimp.

Who's behind the curtain?
[personal profile] revolutionaryjo and [personal profile] bessyboo primarily, but it takes a village! If you're interested in helping us staff this thing believe us we're interested in your help. Get in touch. If you're not up for that much responsibility, but still want to help we'll be calling for volunteers closer to October. Keep an eye out!

Sounds great, I'm in!
Awesome! You can register using a variety of payment types here for $42.00 + $2.71 Eventbrite fee (USD).

I can't make it, but I think what you guys are doing is rad as heck and I want to contribute!
*through tears* Bro. BRO. Get in touch with us using one of the options below and we'll figure out how to make that happen. You're a superstar.

I have so many more questions.
So do I, friend. So do I. We'll be periodically updating this community as time goes on with more information. In the meantime, if you want to ask us a question directly, shoot us an email (podfication at gmail), send us a tweet (@podfication), an ask at, or drop us a comment here. We look forward to hearing from you!
