After a lot of discussion, planning, and private medieval jousting, The Skiffy and Fanty Show podcast has opened its very own Patreon page.
So why are we there? We want to do more — and we want to do it better. More episodes. More World SF Tour goodness. Better quality. Better features. Better experiences for you, the listener.
Patreon is the first step in making The Skiffy and Fanty Show (and its related podcasts) into something more. We’re turning to you, the listener. You can have a hand in helping us create new content, improve the overall quality of the show, and pave the way for a brighter podcasting future.
So head on over to our Patreon page, check out our Reward Levels and our Milestone Goals. We’ve got some big plans listed there, and even more plans for the future. It feels like we keep saying this every year, but it needs repeating: this is only the beginning.
All but one of the Robogoblins will be at CONvergence this year in Minneapolis, MN! If you’re planning to attend, make sure you come to some of our panels, including the LIVE recording of The Skiffy and Fanty Show on Saturday. You should also make sure to follow us on Twitter in case we host any impromptu events (walk-by sessions, hangouts, etc.).
Here are all of our official panels and events (all times are in EST; parentheses indicates who will officially be there or on the panel): Continue reading
A little while ago, we ran a listener survey to learn more about how you access our show, what you listen to, what you like and dislike, and so on. That survey garnered a lot of wonderful responses — thanks! As such, The Skiffy and Fanty Show will be changing a bit.
These changes aren’t permanent. They’re an experiment. We’ll reassess in a few months to see how it’s working out, and we’ll ask you all for feedback again (because you’re awesome).
Here’s what you can expect around these parts for the foreseeable future: Continue reading
If you missed it on Twitter, we’re currently seeking feedback from listeners about various aspects of the show. The hope is that it will provide us some anonymous information which will help us improve the podcast for the future.
So, if you have a little bit of time to offer your thoughts about The Skiffy and Fanty Show, please take our little survey.
Thanks again for listening (and for your time)!
As you may well be aware by now, we have a new theme in 2015: Women and Non-Binary in SFF. This post will serve as a handy guide to our show for the next 11.5 months and as a nice place to go in case you want to be a part of the show or the blog at some point in 2015.
The Theme: What We’re Doing
Throughout 2015, we are going to put particular focus on the contributions of women and non-binary people to science fiction and fantasy.

Though we’re not setting a hard quota for the year, we expect that roughly 75% of our content will be women- and non-binary-centered.
As such, we have two levels of “open calls” for guests: Continue reading
