Welcome to the brand new Fantasy Movie Podcast website!

Welcome to the brand new Fantasy Movie Podcast website!  Now the blog won’t suck.  Who hoo.  Note that the podcast RSS feed will not change!  So no reason to change any subscription options.  The url won’t really change either as long as you have http://www.fantasymoviepodcast.com or http://fantasymoviepodcast.com bookmarked.  If you have the old libsyn address bookmarked (http://thepoweroffriendship.libsyn.com/)  please update your bookmarks because that site will no longer be updated.

We now have a competent commenting system on the blog! There are threaded comments, you can reply to one another, get notifications from other people who have replied to you, spellcheck your comments, have gravatars, etc.

The blog also is nicely indexed with podcast categories, tags, and an episode index listing what topics we cover in each episode.

We also have a FORUM! There’s not much there right now, but I hope we can grow it into a nice little community where people can chat about fantasy movies, tv series, and books.

Fantasy Movie Podcast Promos!

Kasey on a UnicornWe’ve been meaning to get to this for awhile and we finally recorded a few promos this weekend.   These are meant to be exchanged with other podcasts, spammed on forums, and to generally terrify people around you.   Use with caution.

Fantasy Moive Podicast Reviewed on Podcast Squared

Funny GifI submitted the podcast to be reviewed by Podcast Squared which is a podcast that reviews other podcasts.  And they actually reviewed us!

Check it out here: http://podcastsquared.com/2011/07/12/podcast-squared-56-more-real-than-real/

I have to agree with everything the podcast said especially the criticism about pauses being too long.  We record in two seperate files through skype and when I put them back together I struggle with the editing. Since we don’t see each other, I have to edit out the many times we talk over one another.  When I add pauses I have trouble finding what length sounds ‘natural’ in the added pauses. I’m not sure how to fix that, other than to keep practicing I guess.


New Facebook Page and Twitter Feed

The Fantasy Movie Podcast has a new Facebook Page!

Check out our facebook page and make sure to click the like button on the right sidebar of this page:  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fantasy-Movie-Podcast/211189822241533

I also set up a Twitter feed for the podcast:  http://twitter.com/#!/Fantasymoviepod

I’ll use both services to give everyone a heads up when a new episode comes out.   I know episode releases have been sporadic lately.

Guest appearance on the Midnight Movie Club

I, the amazing Kasey (that should be my new title), made a guest appearance on The Midnight Movie Club.  My guest appearance is on their special segment “Three of the Best”.  I did three of the best dorky fantasy movies.  I originally did three of the best Studio Ghibli movies, but there were technical difficulties in that one.  So I made up another one on the fly (because I’m amazing).  It starts at 51:18 on the recording, but I recommend listening to the whole thing.  The two hosts have great repartee with each other and their selection of nostalgic movies are pretty closely aligned with many of the shows we review here.

I was kind of nervous (it was my first time guest starring) but I think it came out alright!

New totally awesome Itunes Icon!

Fantasy Movie Podcast Itunes IconThe super mega wonderfully talented SprinklexEater  has gifted the podcast with a new Itunes and  Album art  Icon!   Isn’t it pretty? We don’t have to use the ghetto pink and black icon anymore! Yeeeahhh!   We’re like all grown up now and stuff.   With  UNICORN POWAHH!

Please, go over to SprinklexEater’s deviantart  page and check out the rest of her stuff. I really like her quirky sense of style.   I’m particularly fond of her chubby unicorn pic.   Her style vaguely reminds me of Jhonen Vasquez’s work, which is a double plus in my book.

About Us

What is a Podcast?

A podcast is essentially an internet radio show.  However, unlike traditional radio shows, anyone with a microphone can create a podcast.  Also, because they don’t have to worry about sponsors or the FCC they can cover an infinitely wide range of topics.

How do you subscribe to the podcast?

Most podcast listeners subscribe to their favorite podcast rather than only checking a podcast’s website. This way whenever a podcast updates they automatically receive the new episode hassle free.

Subscribing is simple.  Most people subscribe to their podcasts through Itunes. Simply search the name of the podcast you’re looking for and click subscribe. Easy.

The Hosts

photounicorn3Kasey

Kasey is a thirty something long time anime fan and all around lady geek.  She’s been an anime fan for over twenty years and has seen some interesting highs and lows throughout the fandom.  She has been a fantasy fan all her life and was allowed to watch The Last Unicorn so many times as a child that it might count as child abuse.  As a fan of video games, fantasy books, anime, manga, superhero comics (go Deadpool and Booster Gold!), former Star Wars fan, and reluctant fan of Star Trek she’s an all around geek.  Kasey has a degree in Communications and so is not even remotely qualified to talk about fantasy movies with any kind of authority.  She’s also the main producer of the podcast which she isn’t qualified to do either.

Melanie

–  Melanie has been Kasey’s friend since high school and has agreed to periodically watch stupid movies and review them on the podcast all in the name of friendship.  She studied video game design in college so she can say lots of smart stuff about computer graphics that often confuses Kasey in its smartness.  She’s been an anime fan since high school, including an active member of the yaoi fangirl community.  She’s an artist at heart who draws what she feels in her soul, or something like that.
