Thanks everyone who was able to make it to the Music in Podfic panel moderated by myself and bessyboo!

You can grab a copy of the presentation slides in PDF format here. The clips of course will not be playable but you can find the URLs to the originals and a whole slew of recs in the handout, also in PDF format.

A couple potentially useful pages brought up at the panel:
- Freegal is a public library service (at least in the US) that allows free music downloads via participating libraries.
- is great for instrumental tracks, not just sound effects.

And someone mentioned something about a Garage Band link that has escaped my now mostly illegible notes, so if you've got that handy drop it in the comments!

And a modly by-the-by, if anyone else would like to post notes from their panels to the DW comm here, you're more than welcome to do so. :)

Hey folks, we're in need of some volunteers! Sorry the request is so late in the game, we've been waiting on some logistical info about when we'll be able to access the venue.

If you're in town and free on Friday morning at 11am, we could use 2-3 people to help set up our panel room! It'll be unstacking chairs and putting them into rows, pulling the whiteboard and whatnot out storage, and just generally making sure the room will be ready for use first thing on Saturday. Shouldn't take more than an hour.

If you're a morning person and/or just raring to go first thing Saturday, we'll need another 2-3 folks at the venue at 8am to help set up the recording room in 106A. For reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, we can't get in there any earlier. It'll be more of the same: setting chairs out, propping up the pipe and drape, and making sure the recording space is ready for use.
Update: We are good for volunteers for Saturday morning! Thank you!

We'll need 2-3 folks to help set up the sandwich lunch event in the kitchenette area! We'll also need the same numbers of peeps to help clean up after it's over at 12:45pm!
Update: We're good for setup volunteers! We could still use some clean up helpers though.

We'll need 5-6 people to help clean up and teardown after things are all over! It'll be restacking chairs, general cleaning up, and putting things away before we head out to the Sunday offsite dinner.

If you're willing and able to commit to any of these things in advance, please drop us a comment, a tweet, or email to let us know to expect you! WE WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER.

I’d like to get feedback from YOU on what y’all want to see covered in this panel! Does anyone have specific questions? Have a piece of cover art (by you OR anyone else) where you think the text is particularly good? Got any examples where you think it’s kind of lacking and would like tips on how to improve it (highly preferably by you or a friend who has given permission; I'd prefer consent for showing “bad” examples)? Tell me what you would like to hear/see!

Podfication is coming up fast! We hope you're as excited as we are, but it's okay if you're a little nervous too. This year we're trying out a con buddy system, so if a little more social structure would help you out (or if you can contribute a little more social structure), read on!

New to podficcing or Podfication and don't know anyone else attending? Not-so-new but feeling a little anxious about a room full of people? Want a familiar face in a crowd to touch base with or plan to go to panel or two with?

On the flip side, maybe you're a podfic veteran looking to welcome a new-to-you face. Maybe you're new yourself, but extremely gregarious and were planning to Meet All The People anyway. We'd love your knowledge or social skill sets to help other people feel a little more comfortable at Podfication.

Some things buddies could do together:
- email or Skype before the con
- plan to go to a panel together
- plan to record something together at the con
- introduce your buddy to folks (ex// "You should meet X, you both really love this obscure thing!")
- be someone to sit beside when your buddy isn't sure where to go

You don't have to be new to podficcing or Podfication to want a buddy, or to have been around for a long time to be one. The buddy system is to help people feel more comfortable and have more fun, so ask for the role that's going to make you happiest.

Please fill out this form if you'd like to participate in the buddy system.

We'll guarantee a buddy for anyone who signs up before October 1st (matches will go out no later than October 7th) and we'll try our best with anyone who signs-up after that date.

The con buddy program is being coordinated by [personal profile] bessyboo and [personal profile] cantarina/[ profile] vworpvworp.

Live performance sign-ups for 2017 are now open!

This event is a chance for anyone who'd like to do a reading for a live audience at the convention. We should have enough time for 10-11 performances. It's a lot of fun!

You can do something new, something you've recorded before, an excerpt from a longer work (give us a heads up on that please), arrange or join a multi-voice performance, or whatever you like so long as it abides by the rules below!

While this is mostly an event that's performance for performance's sake, we'll be recording it. After the con, we'll post it to AO3 for everyone's enjoyment. There is an opt out if you'd rather not have your performance included and/or if you don't have author permission.

To make sure we can fit in everybody who wants to read:

  • Performances should not run longer than 20 minutes total.

  • 1 sign-up per individual.

  • In addition to a solo performance, you can participate in up to 2 multi-voice performances.

The form will remain open through September 23 30*, 2017 at 11:59pm CST.


Any questions, just let us know! Drop us a comment, tweet (@podfication), or email us (podfication at gmail).

*Belated realization that the submission form was listing a cutoff date of Sep. 30th while this post had the 23rd. Going with the later of the two in case anyone was banking on that. Sorry for the mixup!

Panel requests for 2017 are now open! Click here!

We're accepting submissions up through 11:59pm CST on September 9, 2017.

Never run a panel before? No problem! The stakes are low and the Podfication crowd is super chill. If you've got a topic you want to talk about with people for an hour, you can run a panel! Interested in running a demo, game, or event instead? No problem! Submit your idea through the same form and tell us all about it.

A few things to be aware of:

  • You can submit more than one idea!

  • If we run out of space and you've submitted more than one idea, we may have to choose between them. So if there's one topic you favor over others let us know!

  • Have an idea but don't want to run it alone? Drop a comment on this thread asking for co-panelists!

  • Would you like to help run a panel but don't have a good topic of your own? Check the comments!

Some more relevant info:

  • We'll have a screen, projector, and speakers for the panel room, but you'll have to provide your own laptop or other device to connect up to it. The projector has a VGA input. If your device exports through HDMI, we've got an adapter for that you can borrow. If all you need is audio, as long as your device has a standard audio jack you're good.

Any questions, just let us know!

For folks not in easy driving distance of the Twin Cities, you can use this post to find roommates to share a hotel room with or connect up with some of the locals who are able to host some attendees for the weekend!

The GPS Community Center is located at 1121 NE Jackson St., Minneapolis MN 55413. There are quite a few hotels in downtown Minneapolis that are an easy bus ride away. Google Maps should be able to give you the logistical lowdown on that, depending on which hotel you're looking up. Metro Transit also has your back.

Many people last year stayed in groups in Airbnbs near the venue, which worked out really well, and we highly recommend! While we'll leave actual rental & group organization up to you, we definitely encourage you to use this option :)

Note from Jo: You may be tempted to stay at the University Inn off of 4th St as it's the closest hotel to the center, but trust me and do not do the thing. Maybe something has changed in the last decade since I lived in that area, but I know it as a place to avoid and am thus passing on this important info.

Locals, if you have some guest rooms or couch space you're able to spare, please chime in! Any space available at an individual's home is at their discretion, of course.

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.

Hey folks, we have a little poll for you over on Twitter that's open for the next week. Stop by and let us know your thoughts!

The long story that doesn't fit into 140 characters is that we had high hopes of finding an alternate venue to run another year of Podfication due to the noise issues we had last year, but life and things got in the way. It seemed like most everyone had a good time despite the youth ministry's highly enthusiastic drummer though, so we're gauging interest. Would you like if we had another Podfication this year in the GPS rooms again? Or would you prefer to wait until a future year when we can find a more appropriate venue? Dates have yet to be arranged, but if we go for it with GPS, we'd aim for mid-October again.

If you can't do Twitter polls for whatever reason feel free to reply here, via tweet, or whatever channel you're comfortable with! We're looking forward to hearing from you. :D
