Galacticast and The Parsec Awards, A Celebration of Speculative Fiction Podcasting


Thanks to twitter (@bbluesman aka Mark Foreman, creator of many outstanding audio podcasts), I found this great mini-movie video created by Galacticast. GALACTICAST is a weekly comedy show parodying all the worlds of geek-dom. From their apartment studio, Casey McKinnon and Rudy Jahchan (along with the other Galacticast players) mash-up their love of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, comics, and video-games to bring you hilarious sketches every Monday morning.

Their latest release is “Star Fleet Academy – To Boldly Go Where No One Wants to Go“, a spoof of the Star Trek shows. Mark twittered (tweeted?) about it so I followed link and was entranced. It is really, really well done and very funny. And it is only one of their many great podcasts. (Sorry for the too large size, I can’t control the size of the video).


Galacticast was nominated for 3 Parsec Awards (A Celebration of Speculative Fiction Podcasting) this year,: Best Fan Podcast, Best Video Podcast and Best Video Production. Here is the list of all the finalists and you can view/listen to all the amazing podcasts that were nominated this year here and you view by category by using the selections listed in the left sidebar. And here is the list of the Parsec Award Winners.

If you have some time to kill, go look through the Parsec Award nominations and the Galacticast videos. You’ll be glad you did!
