I was caught completely by surprise last night by the email notifying me of my nomination. I won a Parsec for Best Tech Podcast three years ago. The steering committee revised the categories the following year, eliminating that category. I have attended the ceremonies when at Dragon*Con in the intervening years but otherwise not followed the Parsecs all that closely since.
My nomination is in the Best Fact Behind the Fiction Podcast category. The description says, “Podcasts that explore the facts that influence the fictions – the science, history, culture, and mythology that inspire these stories.” I am amongst amazingly good company, including among others GeekCred, Astronomy Cast and Skepticality. I can honestly say it is an honor to be nominated if I am to compete against these great casts. Thank you to whomever nominated me, I very much appreciate the thought.
I have until the 15th of this month to get my submission together. If any of you have ideas about segments from the last year of shows that best exemplify the spirit of the category, let me know.
