Thank you to everyone who made suggestions about what the topics for this year should be; I couldn't have done this without all the great input I got. Because pod_aware
is for anyone interested in podfic, I've merged some of the ideas together, or put them under a broader heading so that non-podficcers can participate as well.
Without further ado, here are the topics:November 10: The History of Podfic
This can be the overall history of podfic or your personal history with it. November 11: Podfic and Other (Fan)Works
It's pretty rare for a podfic to not be related to another fanwork, the most obvious being the fic it's a recording of, but it also other works like cover art, fanart, or fanmixes. What is podfic's relation to other fan audio works? Or non-fannish works like audiobooks?November 12: Podfic Community and Beyond
As the popularity of podfic grows, podficcers start spreading out and popping up all over the place. Where are those interested in podfic hanging out these days and how are they supporting each other?November 13: Personal Preferences
Everyone has personal preferences when listening to or creating podfics: length, music, story telling style, rating, etc. This is a chance to talk about some of your favourites, or about various stylistic choices. November 14: Podfic in the Broader Fannish Context
Why does podfic take off in some fandoms more than others? How can we encourage it in fandoms? Get podfic included in more fannish challenges/exchanges? How is podfic perceived by those who aren't as familiar with it?
