Get A Life, A Second Life with the Gallifreyan Embassy and Doctor Who: Podshock

Join us for another Gallifreyan Embassy / Doctor Who: Podshock Meet Up!

Once again, we will be meeting up via Second Life for another exciting and fun meet up. Best of all, you don't have to drive there to attend. No matter where you may live in this world (or any other), as long as you have a broadband internet connection and a relatively contemporary computer you can join us!

After a very successful return to Second Life last May after having our first in 2006, we received tremendous amount of interest on us doing this on a more regular basis. We listened. We are now holding these meet ups seasonal

Happy Anniversary to Us! 24 Years of Time and Space.

It was 24 years ago today, that the Gallifreyan Embassy was founded. It was a different world at that time. The current Doctor was Colin Baker. His stories had just started to make their way to the States. Doctor Who was being shown across the country in the US via local PBS stations. There was no BBC America, no Sci-Fi Channel (or "Syfy"), there wasn't even the World Wide Web then. There were conventions, both dedicated Doctor Who conventions and science fiction conventions with Doctor Who guests and many fans looking to meet and feed their addiction in between cons.

Tara Takes a Knitting Break

Tara Takes a Knitting Break

For who have the urge to smoke, will step outside to take "a cigarette break" -- for Tara Wheeler, that translates to an urge to knit. Here she is outside the pub at the DWNY and Gallifreyan Embassy joint meet up on June 15, 2009 to take a knitting break. This is how scarves are made. (Photo by Louis Trapani taken with a 1st gen iPhone)

An Introduction to Our Second Life Meet Ups

As previously announced, our Second Life meet ups are now seasonal. We will be holding them on a regular basis. Last month, we had our very successful Second Second Life Meet Up which took place after a long gap without any. Victor1st of the land of Katrina on Second Life prepared a video that introduced Doctor Who fans to the Doctor Who Experience on Second Life. He had also created a new one specifically for those attending our meet up.

Although our Second Second Life Meet Up was last month, this video still serves as a good introduction to Second Life for our upcoming meet ups. Our next will be in August. We thank Victor for making this greeting and tour for those attending our meet ups there.

In February 2009, Doctor Who: Podshock (Ken Deep, Billy Davis, and Louis Trapani) attended the DWNY (Doctor Who New York) Meet Up. Also attending were special guests Paul Cornell and Tony Lee. During the event, DWNY President, Barnaby presented the two with DWNY mugs, here is a short video clip of the presentation.

Celebrate 24 Years With Us

June marks our 24th anniversary! Join us as we celebrate it at a special joint meet up with DWNY on Monday, 15th of June 2009 at 7pm at the Peculier Pub in New York City. It is not the first time we will be joining DWNY at a meet up at the Peculier Pub. If you attended before, you know what a fantastic group DWNY is and how wonderful their meet ups are on a monthly basis. This one will be no exception.

In town joining us will be Doctor Who: Podshock's West Coast Correspondent, Joshua Lou Friedman for the event. Plus, we will have a very special guest WHO will be on hand too.

Second Life Meet Ups Now Seasonal

Thanks to the enormous success of our Second Second Life Meet Up in May, we had an overwhelming amount of requests at the event for us to do it on a more regular basis. To that end, we will be holding Doctor Who: Podshock / Gallifreyan Embassy Second Life Meet Ups now regularly. 

Second Life is a virtual 3D environment that enables club members, listeners, website visitors, and all Doctor Who fans to come together to meet up, talk, dance, hang out, party, etc. no matter where you live. All that is needed is broadband internet access and the free Second Life client software (and a computer capable of running it). It breaks down the geographic barriers and make it easy for us to connect. It's the next best thing to being there in person.
