What is Podfication?
An informal gathering of podfic creators and listeners! Come join us in Minneapolis for a couple days of informal hanging out, discussion, and of course recording.

When and where is this thing?
October 21st & 22nd, 2017 at the Geek Partnership Society's Event Horizon community center. (1121 Jackson St NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413)

So kind of like a convention?
Okay, Jo is finally owning up. Yes! It IS a convention. But not your typical convention because there's no hotel. The Geek Partnership Society is kindly renting us their community center rooms for the weekend.

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 also encourage finding roommates and renting some local Airbnb's within walking distance of the venue, which worked out wonderfully last year! You can find the post on lodgings right here.

Geek Community Center, huh? That sounds kind of neat.
Yes! And it is! But let us manage your expectations. 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 including a Christian Youth Ministry and their highly enthusiastic drummer. The sound can and will bleed between the rooms. We know it's not ideal, especially for recording, but it is a space we can all gather and talk about all things podfic!

Don't get us wrong, there are lovely things about it too! 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.

I have a question about accessibility.
We want to help accommodate any accessibility needs that we can! You can find our accessibility guide here.

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 for $40.00 +
$3.19 Eventbrite fee (USD) here through Eventbrite. We know, it's a not insignificant increase over year one. Now that we know how much one of these things actually costs, we know how much we need to make it happen without relying on additional donations.

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, join up and if you want to ask us a question directly, shoot us an email (podfication at gmail), send us a tweet (@podfication) or drop us a comment.

One thing that I haven't seen addressed, neither here in the [community profile] podfication community nor at the Geek Community Center's web page is accessibility for those with disabilities.

I think it's something that needs to be mentioned, somewhere.
