Ep-41: Doin’ the Charleston at Intervention


This gif works amazingly well with our theme song.

Joined by our friends Ben Taylor and CW Cobalt before a live audience at Intervention, we go back to 1982 and discuss the upperclass English adventure story in “Black Orchid.” The Doctor arrives in the early 20th century countryside for some cricket, a spot of tea… AND MURDER.

Intervention: The Premier Showcase of Online Creativity

Intervention Convention

You know how it is, right? You’re sitting around the house surfing the web and you start thinking to yourself, “Wow, Self, I sure would like to meet a podcaster but they only exist as digital audio online. I guess I’ll be sad and play more Facebook games to fill my time.”

Well now you don’t have to be sad! This August 23rd through 25th you can meet real life podcasters IRL (that’s “In Real Life” for all y’all n00bs). Not only that, you can meet a plethora of webcomic creators and Internet celebrities PLUS play awesome games and buy fabulous merch (that’s apparently what the kids call merchandise these days).

Now you’re probably asking yourself, “Self,  where can we meet and hangout with these awesome Internet celebrities, play games and buy what the kids call merch?” That’s the easy part, just head to the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville in Rockville, Maryland this August 23 – 25 and attend Intervention.

What’s “Intervention”? Again, super easy, Internet + Convention = Intervention

And now is the time to head over to the Intervention website and purchase your tickets. The regular price for the entire weekend is $40 but if you purchase your tickets before 1 July you can save $5 and only pay $35! The entire weekend for only $35! How awesome is that?

This year you’ll be able to meet Jennie and me at the Reality Amuck/Playing Doctor table. We will be there Friday, Saturday and Sunday selling copies of my book, handing out Playing Doctor cards and having a blast meeting all of our awesome readers and listeners who show up. I will be doing a few panels where we’ll talk about Comics, Doctor Who and maybe even podcasting.

The weekend is full of programming and it is always a blast. Jennie and I want you guys to have fun, you know you want to have fun, so join us at Intervention on August 23-25 in beautiful Rockville, Maryland.
