A (Very Self-Serving) Call to Action

March 2, 2015 11 comments

We need to ask a big favor of you.

We were nominated for a People’s Choice Podcast Award this year and we really, really want to win it.  But to do that, we need your help.

You can vote for us as often as once per day at podcastawards.com (you’ll find us in the “Religious/Inspirational” category) and you can also tell all of your other friends and family to do the same.  This is the most coveted honor in the podcasting industry, and while we don’t have anywhere near the largest audience in our category, we’re counting on the fact that we have the best audience in our category.  The award will go to the show with the most votes, so it will really all depend on how many of you are willing to vote every day.

Also, and this bit is important, every time you vote, you’ll receive an email confirmation.  If you don’t click on the verification link in that email, your vote won’t count.  Voting opens today and runs until March 24th, so you have a total of 21 chances to vote for us.

This is our first year of eligibility for a podcast award and it’s a huge honor to be nominated.  It would be exactly one order of magnitude more of an honor to win.  Please help make this happen for us.  We’ll owe you viable body parts.

If you have any questions or you’re having any trouble voting, we’ll be happy to help.  Leave a comment below and we’ll get back to you ASAP.

Thanks again for helping us get this far.

(PS Our good friends Tom & Cecil are nominated in the News/Politics category as well, so while you’re over there voting anyway, we strongly encourage you to give them some love as well.)

Pre-Shownotes Note for episode 106

February 26, 2015 3 comments

I have a bad habit of fucking around and not getting the shownotes up right away the day the episode comes out.. And in my defense, when I say fucking around, I mean not finishing all the editing and stuff until 4 am and then passing out before I can take care of anything else.  But I wanted to make sure nobody who checked in before I got caught up missed this one.

At the open of the show, our friend The Anonymous Dr. Steve discusses his appalling perversion of justice he’s trapped under at the moment.  If you want to help, please take a second and sign the petition linked below.  And by all means, share it all over your social media.  This is one of those things that should piss off even your Christian friends and family (especially the non-Catholic ones).


Good luck, doc…
