PodCon2 Contest!

The PodCon2 Hangover Contest is here!

We have returned from PodCon2 in Seattle! It was an enlightening experience. Highlights included:

  • Meeting other podcasters and some of our Patreon supporters
  • Spending time in the Alba Salix community and conversation pit (I always enjoyed listening to that show, and they’re such good people)
  • Multitude Productions‘ generosity of knowledge, with strategies, tips, inside information and understanding of how pre-production, press and sponsorship work
  • The Audio Fiction* panels, with great insights from creators about how sound and story harmonize. I’m still thinking about what Mischa Stanton said about sound texture, and the hinges in the cabinet doors in The Far Meridian.

Needless to say, Vince and Lindsay ate and drank their way across Seattle, and had a wonderful time getting vertigo at The Space Needle.

fullsizeoutput_1dd8If you attended PodCon2, you know that stickers are the coin of the realm. If you met Vince and or Lindsay, you know that they were so mentally consumed with the #federalshutdown and the #TSAworkersplight that they FORGOT TO BRING THEIR STICKERS. But, they can be yours, because we’re having a…

PODCON HANGOVER CONTEST! 

Participation in the contest is easy. Here’s all you have to do.

Send an email to jarnsaxa@jarnsaxarising.com with answers to the following questions.

  1. What kind of food did Eric offer Jarnsaxa in Season 1?
  2. What kind of fruit did Hel offer Eric in Season 2?
  3. What color shirt was Alexander Danner (of Greater Boston and What’s The Frequency) wearing at PodCon2 on Sunday?
  4. What color blouse was Elena Fernandez-Collins wearing at PodCon2 on Saturday?
  5. Who (specifically) helped Jasper get to Yggdrasil in Season 2?

The first 30 people to email us answers to these questions will get one of each sticker above (except not the Stickermule one, I just put that in there because, hey, they sent it, I might as well promote them, right?), mailed to them, via USPS.

ONE person who can answer all of the the above questions correctly will win the Jarnsaxa Rising t-shirt of their choice from TeePublic. And yes, we are adding new designs! In the event of a tie, we will figure something out.

CONTEST DEADLINE:  Thursday, January 31, 2019, 12pm, midnight, Eastern, US (Philly time).

By participating in this contest, you give permission for us to mail the stickers to the address you provide, and to send you email in the future about Jarnsaxa Rising, and news about 6630 Productions’ future projects.

GO, GET ‘EM, TIGER. And thank you to everyone at PodCon2!

 

*You say fiction, I say drama: potayto, potahto, tomayto, tomahto, let’s call the whole thing off.

Thor takes her to Yggdrasil. Reunited with Eric, she must make hard choices about the future for her own children, and Eric’s.

Podcasting is sometimes a lonely business. After the recording is finished, the process of editing and promotion means a lot of time spent at your desk in front of a screen. Reviews like this make it all worth while. Thank you, ladies, for making us feel like real, live artists.

More new art for Season 2 of Jarnsaxa Rising!

Have you seen Sif and Eric yet?

Her hair’s shorn (if you’ve heard Season 1, you recall that unfortunate incident), and she’s on a journey. She’s reluctantly agreed to bring Eric along, since they have a common wound from Loki’s trickery.  But where is their next stop? And who’s chasing them?

SEASON 2 IS GO

The first two episodes of Jarnsaxa Rising are available for your listening pleasure!

Episode 1, We Who Contain Multitudes: In September of 1944, Jarnsaxa wakes in her witch bottle on the island of Sottunga. A plane crashes, bringing strangers to her realm. Will they free her? What are their intentions? Are humans worth her loyalty?

Episode 2, Only The Best & Brightest: Jarnsaxa and Loki infiltrate The Hei Shui Corporation, using the bodies of Bachman and Eric. Familiar voices distract them from their mission. Eric wakes in the Land of the Dwarves and meets Sif, only to risk making an enemy of her. Thor prepares for another of Odin’s murderous errands, and Heimdall demands answers.
