As you probably already know, in the US, we are currently in the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. It is a time when many stop and give thanks and express our appreciation for what we are grateful for in life.
Therefore, this posting is an opportunity to express my thanks to everyone that has listened to and supported Doctor Who: Podshock over the years. That in all likelihood means everyone reading this post.
Now in our fifth year in production, we could not have done it without you.
I thank Ken Deep and James Naughton who have been there since the very beginning, as we would not be where we are today without them. They volunteer their time and efforts on an ongoing basis to bring you the show you know and love.

This Doctor Who: Podshock default cover art "TARDIS Trio" Style D was actually designed in the summer of 2009 reflecting some of the changes concerning our podcast as well as some anticipation of a logo change. It made its debut in the Gallifreyan Embassy Café Shop, August 2009
While listening to TARDIS Tara’s semi-live Comic-Con reports Podshock Episode 157, and reading and hearing various other reports on the Doctor Who panel, one comment really stood out in my mind. That was Julie Gardner’s comment on what made her fall in love with Doctor Who. She reported that the first story that Russell showed her when they started work on the series was the Season 17 story “City of Death”, and from that moment she said she has been a confirmed fan.
Thanks for the welcome to the blog so far! This installment is a little bit more newsy than opinion - but rest assured I have more opinions to come!
Listeners to Podshock episode 157 will hear Jarrod Cooper, the chairman of the Hurricane Who convention (http://hurricanewho.com) taking place in Orlando, Florida from Friday October 30 - Sunday November 1 2009, mention a new endeavour taking place in New York City associated with DWNY - Who York.
Plans are still being made and will be revealed here shortly, but our first event is expected to be in November, 2009. If you bookmark http://whoyork.com you will see that we are already putting some preparations in place.

How can I play AAC files on my non-iPod player?
We have two feeds, one is the enhanced podcast AAC format that will play in any device or software that is compatible with the AAC format (this automatically includes all Apple products such as the iPod, iPhone, iTunes, etc.). Enhanced podcasts include chapters, images, and URL links. They also support higher quality audio without increasing the file size. Our other feed is a plain MP3 format feed which should work in just about any device or player.
