Getting ready for the Season 2 launch

You might notice that the Season 1 podcast feed disappears and reappears today. Nothing to worry about (knock wood). We’re doing a little bit of housekeeping, and getting our RSS feed ready for Season 2.

In the meantime, you can subscribe to this blog for updates, and follow us on Twitter or Facebook (just search for Jarnsaxa Rising), so you’l be able to get the story as soon as we launch.

Thanks!

New Review and Dramaturg Love!

Working on the website re-design means double-checking links which means having Google serve you up some delightful review surprise goodness!

Carolyn Ducker did a deep listen and wrote a review about Jarnsaxa Rising Season 1 at Geek Girl Authority. This review is really well-written, going into details of how all elements worked for her. I’ve read a lot of reviews in my time, and Ms. Ducker is very good with structure and prose, pointing out how her listening experience worked. In particular, I’m very excited because she praised our dramaturg, Kit Gordon. Dramaturgs are essential to writers, directors and producers, providing an advocate for the best possible story. They never get enough love.

Thank you, Carolyn!

We are testing out the new Jarnsaxa Rising merchandise store! Right now, we have only one design up on the site. That’s going to change: we’re scheming and making plans. In the meantime, from now until Monday, May 28th, 2018, you can get a Jarnsaxa Rising t-shirt for only $14. All of our other merchandise (tote bags, pillows, sweatshirts, etc) is 30% off.

Show your commitment to independent science fiction revenge tragedy audio drama today! 

In the meantime… we’re still working on Season 2. Soon it will be ready for you. Soon. We promise.

Review from Matt Versus AudioDrama

As we’re getting ready for Season 2, Google decided to finally inform us that nine months ago, Matt Durkin of Matt Versus Audio Drama posted a review of Jarnsaxa Rising on his YouTube Channel.

This blows my mind. I only started following Matt a few months ago, but I’m hooked. His YouTube channel is utterly charming, sort of like wandering onto the front porch of the home of a graduate school professor and catching him between cups of strong coffee and scribbling thoughts in a stack of several interconnected notebooks. I had no idea that Jarnsaxa came up on his radar.

In any case, after watching this, I’m definitely subscribing to Mirth Defect. Thank you for putting wind in our sails, Matt!  Reviews are for podcasters what any noises an audience makes are for actors.

Work continues on Season 2. We have recorded A Feast in Niflhel, and many surprises are on their way.  We can’t wait to get Jarnsaxa’s saga in your ears.

She’s coming back.

Rhinegold_and_the_Valkyries_p_138Season 2 of Jarnsaxa Rising is coming. It’s recorded, we’re working on editing, and you should expect to see a lot of new things here soon. We’re planning to re-design the web site, and make some rewards available for our loyal listeners. Right now would be a good time to subscribe to this web site, so that you’ll get all the updates as they happen.

It’s also a good time to catch up on Season 1 and refresh your memory, leave a review and show us how you feel, or recommend Jarnsaxa Rising to a friend.
