Pulp Gamer Takes Two Parsec Awards
Two podcasts produced by Pulp Gamer have been awarded Parsec trophies.
Benson, AZ – (Sept 5, 2007) - Pulp Gamer was honored with two trophies at the Parsec Awards ceremony at Dragon*Con in Atlanta Georgia last weekend for two of their podcasts. For the category of Best Infotainment Podcast, Pulp Gamer's, “Out of Character” claimed the honor. The best gaming podcast went to another Pulp Gamer production called, “Inside Track”. Both podcasts are hosted by Don Dehm of Benson, Arizona, Derek Rex of Benson, Arizona, and Jeremiah Lynch of Maplewood, Minnesota.
Accepting the awards on behalf of the Pulp Gamer crew was Jeremiah Lynch. He was elated and reported being a bit surprised. “It was an honor just to be nominated against so many fine podcasts.” When talking to him after the ceremony he wanted to be sure to point out the quality of the event and the fine hosting job done by Michael Mennenga and Mur Lafferty. “The ceremony was a professional production and very well done.”
Millions are taking advantage of podcasting. Podcasting is the new talk radio, except it is downloaded and played from your computer, portable mp3 player, and some of the newest cell phones. Subscribers of Pulp Gamer learn about new games on their drive to work, while exercising at the gym, or while they work at their desk.
The podcast, “Out of Character” is a community show that is largely driven by listener feedback. Hosts use the feedback to springboard discussions and introduce news topics to the gaming public. “Inside Track” consists almost entirely of a single interview of a game industry insider, such as a game designer or author. More information about these podcasts and several others can be found at www.pulpgamer.com.
