It's been a while, we've been busy, we've missed you! Last night we felt vaguely sorry for ourselves. I have no more access to a pottery studio and Daniel is in the middle of waiting for art so we had some pent up creativity. We decided to vent this on a speedy podcast, it was six o'clock and we had to get it done by 12. Who doesn't love a challenge? So we gave you some news, some reviews of this little event.

And a discussion about something called the Super Fun Readers' Club. It's a mysterious club shrouded in mystery, want the skinny? Are you too square to be hip? You need Episode Nine of North East Geek Feast. Yup.

Oh, and we're so fly, we were finished by 11, who can live up to a self-imposed deadline? North East Geek Feast, that's generally who.

Geek Syndicate Network

Hello, y'all!

You can now find North East Geek Feast on the Geek Syndicate Network.

If you don't know what this means, it means we won't be on Mevio or our usual iTunes feed anymore. Instead, we'll be on the Geek Syndicate iTunes feed and on the Geek Syndicate website. It also means we're mint. Because the other Geek Syndicate Network podcasts are mint.

Yep, there have been a ton of episodes since our last post, but the newest are Episode 6 where Lee Grice from SPBM joins us for reviews, then it goes very well when I try out a 24hr Comic Challenge and I interview Sgt Mike Battle creator, Graham Pearce.

In the last episode, the BICS Special I interview Graham again, Russell Hillman from Halloween Man, Matthew Craig from Hondle (Etc), Terome/Tom McNally from Little Old Man Comics, and - finally - Paul Cornell and "Jimmy Broxton" about the Knight and Squire comic. And, yes, this was Jimmy's first interview on a podcast and first interview after coming out as James Hodgkins.

Writers Wanted

North East Geek Feast is relaunching with the next episode and will soon feature radio plays every other month. Or Pod-Plays, as I'm calling them.

What we're looking for:

1. A one/two paragraph pitch (to featuring a protagonist, some clue to their character, what they want to achieve/have to struggle against and the outcome - in terms of whether they succeed and what changes in their character that causes.

2. Although the length and medium is great for a short story with a twist at the end, we're still looking for something that makes a statement or raises questions about the situation/issue you're delving into.

3. No more than 4 voices (including any narration).

4. Clever use of audio - the listener is 'blind'. 5. Sci-fi, horror and fantasy genre pieces. We also need you to understand that there is no money in the podcast game but it'll be great exposure and a learning tool - hear your work read aloud/work with editors.

Yeah, that's another good point - you should be able to take, respond to and utilise constructive feedback in terms of script-editing.


Daniel, Lily and Garrick

Episode 4 in your ear holes

Yeah, you heard right, Episode 4 of the (not yet) award winning podcast is up on mevio (find it here) or on iTunes, just give it a search.

So this month we reviewed a lotta Doctor Who and we let the wunnerful Mike from Travelling Man tell us all about what's hot and whats cold. We have an in depth probing interview with two of the organisers of Caption Comic Convention (everyone, the fabulous Jay Eales and Selina Lock!) and a discussion about the roles of recommendations, did you contribute? Wanna hear yourselves again? Click on de link!

For those who have yet to get involved, who are hiding like kids who don't want the teacher to ask them, put your hand up! We need geeks and their snookums to tell us Are Geeks Good Lovers?

So let the good times roll, on the bus, in your own homes, while naked, we don't care. Listen up and listen good, get involved, let us know what you'd like to hear and all that jazz.

Hugs and Kisses, North East Geek Feast.x

Episode Two...revealed!

Now that April has come to an end (or - at least - it will within a matter of hours) the next episode of North East Geek Feast is in the process of being put together.

It's very exciting that nearly 500 people have downloaded the first episode straight from Mevio (and we have no idea how many have just streamed it) and it looks like we might've sorted out getting it on iTunes (more on that when I know it's sorted out)! All great stuff.

The next episode will feature...

STARTER Reviews of Whit it! and Cemetery Junction, Doctor Who, X-Men: Second Coming and Great North Museum's Culture Shock exhibition.

PALATTE CLEANSER Retail Review with Mike Thompson of Travelling Man Newcastle.

MAIN COURSE A look at what we're geeky about. Me and Lily will discuss what we're passionate about in comics, film, TV, books and our major passions in life. Peppered with some input from the Facebook discussion and some vox pops.

DESSERT In conversation with Chris J Allan about his blog, '365 days of Film'.

Hopefully, this will all be up on Election Day - May 6th 2010. Hopefully.
