Official Podcasts

During the week of posting, each morning in the official post for the day a podcast on the day's topic is included. If you are interested in organizing/being on one of the official podcasts, please leave a comment here.

If there are more people than is feasible for a single podcast, we can organize multiple podcasts for that day, so don't be shy about signing up, the more voices and opinions, the better!

2014 Topics

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?

Pod Aware 2014

November is just around the corner, so you know what that means! Pod Aware! This year Pod Aware will run from November 10-14*, but I need your help to make this happen!

First thing we need, are some suggestions for the daily topics.
Our first round's topics were: Podfic 101/Why We Podfic, Blanket Permission, Author/Podficcer Relationships, Accents, Feedback, Repodding, and Encouraging Podfic.
The topics of our second round were: How We Podfic, Podfic Fandom, Recs, Acting, Special Effects, Collaboration, and Feedback.

As you can see some of those topics have been repeated, and we can repeat them again this year if people want or we can introduce new topics, but I need to know what people are interested in.

Secondly, I need volunteers. I'll need help creating the round up posts, which link to all the entries from the previous day. I'll also need help creating the podcasts that get posted each day.

Please comment to volunteer or share ideas.

*I initially listed the 13-17 as the days, but that's because I fail and was looking at the month of October instead of November.
