    We wanted to do something big for the special Buffy 20th anniversary edition of the podcast, and get everyone involved. With this in mind, we have come up with a theme and we would love it if as many board members as possible could get involved with it.

    The theme is "What Buffy means to me"

    Some people have been fans of the show for 20 years, others might be more recent, however we are all intrinsically linked by our love for the show and we all have a story for why we love it and what the show means to us individually. :)

    We'd love to hear your stories about why you love the show, what got you hooked, maybe even how the show influenced your life or helped you out. Why does Buffy the Vampire Slayer still resonate for you twenty years after it premiered? We want you to get involved in this special anniversary edition of the podcast and we want to make it really easy for you to choose your level of involvement.

    There are a couple of ways you can get involved with this episode of the podcast. You can PM either myself or Taake with your anecdotes on what Buffy means to you personally and we'll read them out on the show and mention you by name when we do so.

    Or if you want to feature on the podcast yourself - you can! :D Use your your smartphone to record a short audio clip of yourself reading your thoughts, email it to us and we'll include your recording in the show. Just make sure in the recording (or corresponding email) you say who you are so we know who to attribute the recording to. You can email audio clips to omwpodcast@gmail.com

    The closing date for submissions (either audio or written) is March 17th 2017.

    The small print: If your thoughts are very very very long, we may have to edit them down, however we will try our best to avoid this if at all possible. Basically, please try to avoid writing or dictating a large essay! We already struggle to keep the podcast length to 90 minutes and Taake and I talk enough as it is
    :D

    Any questions, feel free to ask :)

    That's cool. :)

    Are there going to be any other 20th anniversary activities on the board?

    Yes, there's obviously the drabble contest and we have some other ideas we're mooting too. :) Obviously if anyone has any specific ideas, let us know, we have a couple of weeks til the (official) big day :)
     
    GwenRaiden: Something involving art would be good? I know we still have a few art makers kicking around the board.

    @ChaseRules I think there has been a misunderstanding. You have til 17th to submit an anecdote, so you don't need to be around on the 17th ;)

    You can send me a written piece for Taake or I to read, or record something. We just want to know why Buffy means so much to you personally, and we'll create a podcast around that :)

    1 week to get something to us :)

    We appreciate some people may not be keen to record their own thing and be featured that way. That's absolutely cool, don't let it put you off submitting something in writing. Taake & I will try our best to do your submission justice with our own special vocal delivery & gravitas :D

    Or we'll just write it ourselves and sign your names to it... not that we would. Would we? Nooo... would we?
     
    Last Watcher: Probably turn out better than I could come up with..... ;)
