Everyone has personal preferences when listening to or creating podfics: length, music, story telling style, rating, etc. Come talk about them at pod_aware on DW, LJ or Tumblr to find out.

I thought about this topic for quite a while, and really, what is more 'personal preference' than what podfics we like. So, two recs for you:

1) [Podfic] beautiful and afraid of nothing by [ profile] croissantkatie, text written by [ profile] lady_ragnell - Les Mis - Cosette Fauchelevent/Éponine Thénardier - 17 min.
Summary:My best friend is here, and well, she's a little shy, but we do everything together, Éponine is saying, purring.

This is where the target dies, and he doesn't even know it.

I am a recent convert to Les Mis, and the lack of fic for this pairing left me desolate. This podfic really works for me and I loved the dark dynamic between the characters. I LOVE how [ profile] croissantkatie captures these two awesome women and how their relationship is conveyed through Cosette's point of view. [ profile] croissantkatie really gets underneath the 'good girl' persona and shows us a different, darker version than we're used to. The performance builds a really ominous atmosphere and I could not stop listening, luckily the podfic is only 17 minutes, and what a captivating 17 minutes it is. This is a truly fantastic podfic!

2) [Podfic] A distinct lack of tutus by [ profile] aethel, [ profile] argentumlupine, [ profile] bessyboo, [ profile] exmanhater, [ profile] klb, [ profile] marianas, [ profile] Rhea, [ profile] rivers_bend, and [ profile] templemarker , text written by [ profile] Fahye - Brooklyn Nine-Nine - Amy Santiago/Rosa Diaz - 18 min
Summary: Full-cast podfic of a fic by Fayhe, recorded at Pacificon 2014.

Author's Summary: "Sure, whatever," says Diaz. She slouches even further into today's leather jacket. "Women hit on me all the time. I know how to handle it."

First of all, multi-voice podfics are a delight! And multi-voice projects where all the readers are in the same place are like fannish magic. I feel like the energy comes through in the performances, I feel like I can hear how much fun the readers are having. Brooklyn nine-nine is a perfect fandom for such an amazing pool of talent. I love how the different voices capture the ensemble cast of the show and it really worked for me as a listener. Every single performer in this piece is fabulous. [ profile] Rhea's narration is stellar, I love how Amy's inner monologue is so perfectly captured. [ profile] templemarker's Rosa is perfection. [ profile] bessyboo's moments of Peralta are golden! I could literally list every actor here, because they are all awesome. An A+ choice listen.

Podfic isn't made in a vacuum and can be heavily influenced by or can rely upon other fanworks to exist. From the fic a podfic is of, to the coverart, to collaborations, podficcers often work with other fans to create their art. Check out pod_aware on DW, LJ or Tumblr to learn more.

I woke up this morning with feelings about podfic and fan mixes. Here are my (in)coherent thoughts.

Today is the last day of [community profile] pod_aware. It is feedback day.

Fan artists love feedback and podfic creators are no different. Feedback can motivate us, inspire our muse and help us create more of our art. Feedback on podfic is often rather light so more is always welcomed. To find out how you can help increase feedback for podfic check out pod_aware on DW, LJ or Tumblr.

I am leaving ALL OF THE FEEDBACK today :D

Also, I am totally cheating and recycling a resource, but I think it's still relevant.

Podfic Feedback Toolbox:5 ways to give great podfic feedback is a fantastic meta post about podfic feedback written by [personal profile] klb and I recorded it for last year's [community profile] pod_aware

Podfic doesn't have to be a solitary fanwork. It can be fun to collaborate with others create multi-voiced project, to work with an author on the story, to add visual or extra audio to a podfic. o find out more information on podfic and podfic collaborations, check out Pod Aware on DW, LJ or Tumblr.

Hello! I am at T-17 hours with my essay, and I'm resisting edits like the plague!!! I just want to spread the pod_aware love.

Day 1:
There are so many ways to create podfic and so many ways to listen. We might engage with podfic curled up in bed, in our closet, while commuting or at the gym, in our bathroom with makeshift soundproofing. To find out more information on podfic and how we podfic, check out Pod Aware on DW, LJ or Tumblr.

Day 2:
For many of us, podfic is more than just a fanwork, it's a community. We form friendships, support each other, discuss our shared passions and push each other to new forms and heights of creativity. To find out more information on podfic and podfic fandom, check out Pod Aware on DW, LJ or Tumblr.

I SUPER rec this podcast with [personal profile] dodificus and [personal profile] pennyplainknits about the audioarchive.

FULL NAMES IN YOUR AMPLIFICATHON POSTS PEOPLE! Even when I know the fandom and characters I am super paranoid about spelling. I squeaked out loud when they said my name. I am the archivist with the ridiculously productive fandoms - Teen Wolf and Avengers (and the social network + rpf, but that's mostly me archiving my own stuff, which I'd do anyway). Also, anyone in those fandoms who doesn't want to post to amplificathon, but DOES want their podfic archived - message me, email me, twitter me, and I'll archive your podfic for you.

I have not been able to engage much, but after this essay is defeated: ALL THE POD_AWARE:

plans for awesome )

Um, I have an explanation, just ... later. : ) 

Podfic as a fan art is still relatively small, even if it's growing quickly. There are positive steps that can be taken to help podfic as a fan art grow. To learn how check out [ profile] pod_aware on LJ or DW.
Enjoy Bden and allow him to encourage you, while I get my thoughts in order.

Repodding is when a podfic is made of a fic that has already been podficced. Podfic is awesome, therefore two podfics is even more awesome, right? Every podficcer brings something different to the table and it's fun to see how different podficcers approach the same thing. To find out more about repodding, check out [ profile] pod_aware on LJ or DW.

Also: beta credit to [ profile] ina_pok for both versions of this podfic. She has been really great in getting my pod_aware stuff back to me despite the fact that she has a real life.

I talked about this a bit on the repodding podcast - but that's Saturday, so I'll break it down for you. I've been informed that [ profile] paraka talks about me in today's podcast, but as of now I don't know what she said, so anyway...

Every podficcer has an accent; sometimes that accent matches that of the canon character, sometimes it doesn't. Every accent is special and brings something to the podfic, it represents the podficcer and reminds us just how diverse fandom can be. Come celebrate accents and learn more about them in podfic at [ profile] pod_aware on LJ or DW.

I meant to do an introduction post, about what [ profile] pod_aware is, but I think this post by [ profile] anatsuno sums it up pretty well.

On each day there is going to be a podcast addressing the days topic. You can find today's here with [ profile] paraka [ profile] podklb and [ profile] bessyboo. It is seriously awesome to listen to! I took part in TWO - feedback and repodding. On the day of, I'll go into more detail.

I'll have things to post on accent, feedback and repodding day. But, I'm going to try to post a little something (if just my random thoughts on the topic) every day.

[ profile] paraka deserves all credit for being AMAZING!

So, without further ado - DAY 1 Podfic 101/Or Why We Podfic.

Podfic: it's an audio recording of a fanfic, like an audiobook, how awesome is that? Fans from all over put their voices out there so you can enjoy fanfic on the go or just in a different way. To find out more about podfic, why we do it and how to get started, check out [ profile] pod_aware on LJ or DW.
