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 email@example.com) 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

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

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.

Recording has begun for the pilot episode of North East Geek Feast, the new comics, TV, film, action figure, wrestling, etc, etc podcast from Daniel and Lily (et al).
From the moment we decided on the podcast’s title and gimmick, I knew exactly what I wanted from the segment links. Well, over the weekend I put Lily’s considerable vocal talents to task and recorded some great titles. Yes, it was a bit stressful due to the time of day we were recording at (late on Saturday night) but the finished recordings were exactly what I wanted - SUCCESS!
I also put together a nice little jingle for the podcast, which will go down in history (or not) as my first songwriting/arranging post-Squares.
On Tuesday night we’ll be sitting down to discuss the feature on Paper Jam Comics Collective and the featurette on Trenchfoot. We’ll hopefully get a few interviews recorded on Thursday.

This will be a monthly banquet-themed podcast bringing you the latest news and commentary on comics, books, film, TV, toys, music and video games.
Each episode will be broken up like so...
Starter: News and reviews
Palate Cleanser: Shop-talk with Mike Thompson
Main Course: A feature on a hot-topic
Desert: Feel-good featurette
The first edition will be produced during March for streaming/downloading in April.
Speaking of which, the only thing I haven't worked out yet is where/how I will get the podcast hosted...any advice?
