Now more than ever, we need your support! Become a Supporting Subscriber today.
We are holding a Meet and Greet on the Thursday evening before the convention ("Gallifrey Eve," if you like) at the same hotel. It is at 10pm PST on the 25th of February. It is late enough to allow many of people flying in on Thursday to check into the hotel and get some dinner beforehand. The Meet and Greet is an informal (leave the tux at home) gathering where you will have a chance to come by and say hi, meet the Doctor Who: Podshock hosts, correspondents, and regular contributors to the show. Learn more about our Meet and Greet here. If you plan on meeting up with us there, please RSVP here.
If you are a Podshock Supporting Subscriber and you are going to Gallifrey 21, please let us know if you haven't done so already. In addition to the Meet and Greet, we would like to plan something special to do with supporting subscribers at Gallifrey 21. What that might be, depends on how many will be able to join us. It is because of the support of supporting subscribers we are able to bring you the show and do these events. Please if you haven't done so yet, please consider supporting us by becoming a Podshock Supporting Subscriber. It doesn't cost much and it means so much to us.

On Thursday, the 25th of February ("Gallifrey Eve") 2010 at 10pm (PST) we will be holding a 'meet and greet' in the lobby of the Los Angeles Airport Marriott Hotel (same hotel as Gallifrey 21).
It is an opportunity to come by and say hi to those involved with Doctor Who: Podshock, the hosts Ken Deep, James Naughton (all the way from the UK), and Louis Trapani, various Correspondents (Billy Davis, Tara Wheeler, Mike Doran, Amy Krell, Joshua Lou Friedman, etc.), regular contributors (Eric Escamilla, Barnaby Edwards, etc.) to the show and of course other listeners.
The Sunday tradition continues at Gallifrey 21 this year when once again Doctor Who: Podshock takes the stage for a live recording of our show! Now at a new time, 1pm PST on Sunday the 28th of February at Gallifrey 21 (February 26-28, 2010).
The live show will be bigger than ever before with special guests including Georgia Moffett, Andrew Hayden-Smith, Louise Page, John Fay, and more! Plus like last year, we will have a surprise or two, yes special surprise guests (outside of the convention guests)!
Oh. Yes. Tweet me if you're going to be there at the Silent Movie on Fairfax on Tuesday. Bruce Robinson? A 35mm print? Heaven!!!

This video came my way courtesy of our own Tara Wheeler who is actually in this video. No, she is not the one dancing, nor is that her TARDIS which is dancing, but she and her TARDIS are there nonetheless. She quickly takes to safety in her TARDIS when the dancing one enters the room at Gallifrey 20 (February 2009). I know that is what I would had done as well.
Gallifrey One has announced a date change for the Gallifrey 2010 convention in Los Angeles next year. Due to a hotel booking error, the annual premier North American Doctor Who convention has had to move the date of next year's Gallifrey One: Blackjack 21 back one week to February 26 - 28, 2010.
The Los Angeles Airport Marriott where the convention is being held had essentially accidentally double-booked another event in the same space. Gallifrey One agreed to move the event back a week and by doing so the hotel has reduced the cost of hotel rooms from $114 per night to $100 per night for not only the 2010 convention, but it is locked in for that price through 2013 now to $114 per night for 2010 and further down to $100 per night for 2011-2013. Thus saving money for not only 2010 convention goers, but for those attending for the next few years.
