Hello,

I am happy to announce that Fox and the City was nominated for a People’s Choice Podcast Award. Specifically, the program was nominated for “Best GLBT Podcast.” I am thrilled about the nomination for a number of reasons. First, iTunes continues to deny queer podcasters a category that makes it easy for listeners to find content relevant to the GLBTQ community. This attitude is echoed in the actions of PodCastAlley, who, to date and despite the support of several queer casters, has never featured a gay themed podcast or video cast. Some might argue that queer categories promote a form of segregation, something akin to “separate but equal.” While I understand the logic behind this sentiment, I believe that podcasts serve a unique function in the gay community. Members of the GLBTQ rarely see or hear mass mediated depictions of gay life that come from members of the queer community. Gay voices made public on podcasts promote a sense of shared discernment among queer people, many of whom are invested in seeing themselves in the media. I am happy to see the People’s Choice Podcast Awards acknowledge the unique contributions of LGBTQ podcasters. It would, however, be insincere of me not to mention the notable absence of lesbians and transgendered people nominated in the GLBT category.

I am also tickled by the nomination because I’ve invested 100s of hours of work into making Fox and the City a consistently funny and thought provoking podcast. Many people have flippant attitudes about awards. I am not one of those people. Few people are paid to podcast. Most produce shows for the love of it. Recognition doesn’t hurt in a digital world where disconnection and displacement rule the day. I appreciate all the people who nominated the show and who plan to vote for it.

I encourage you to visit www.PodcastAwards.com and vote for Fox and the City (or, really, for whatever podcast you most enjoy in the GLBT category). You can vote once a day until August 11 but you may only vote once in a 24-hour period. After you submit your vote, you will be asked to check your mail and confirm by clicking on a link embedded in your email. If you have ever enjoyed listening to the show, I hope you will take the time to vote. I submitted a vote last night and it took me less than a minute.

One final note, new episodes of Fox and the City have been posted to FoxintheCity.Libsyn.com. You can also access the show via iTunes, where, despite the absence of a proper, gay friendly label, the program continues to be a featured comedy podcast.

Thanks,

Ragan “I Don’t Need Heath Ledger to Tell My Story” Fox

Hey Kids,

I'm almost done with the new special. Would one of you help me out with artwork? In a nut, I need a promotional flyer type thing that includes a picture of me (any up at the flickr site), the title of the special (Ragan Fox is America's Next Top Bottom), the date of the show's release (June 15, 2006), and www.raganfox.com.

xoxo,

Ragan

listener party
In LA? Want to meet and hang out with Ragan and Rachel Kann? This Sunday (Oct. 30), we're planning an informal listener party. Lots of booze and cursing! Pop culture! "F" us in the "A" and give us a "PJ" (pod job). We're basically going to do a FatC/Eat Bird pub crawl. Hope to see you there.

P.S. You have bird flu!

go to the above link and click five stars. my arch-nemises, a podcaster who shall remain nameless and neckless, has been doing stupid shit to me all day (i.e., lowballing my reviews on yahoo, signing my email address up for a bunch of stupid mailing lists, etc.). also, those of you who don't have iTunes, you can subscribe to the show on yahoo.

Okie dokie, so, here's the deal: podcastalley is the hub of podcast
directories. Each month they rank podcasts based on the number of
votes each podcast receives. At the end of the month, each podcast
starts over on the vote-o-meter. Now that we're at August 1, it would
mean a lot to me if you took two seconds out of your day and voted for
my shit. The voting system
requires you to enter your email address and then go to your email and
click on a link to verify that you are in fact the owner of the email
address. The more votes I receive, the more exposure the podcast
gets.

Go to http://podcastalley.com/one_vote2.php?pod_id=3875 and
click on "Vote now!" Enter your email address. Then you'll have to
confirm your email.

give it life! LIFE
hey ragan, can we use this community to comment on your shows and stuff? the libsyn forum is kinda clunky and its interface isn't as sexy as livejournal's.

ps. i LOVE your podcast. i listen to every episode at work and i've got coworkers listening to you too! we lip-sync to your "f me in the a" intro... it's precious, truly precious.

It's the start of the month. This means that PodcastAlley has
reset the votes and I NEED YOUR HELP. So do the Williams sisters, as
a loyal fan has promised to pay for their gender re-assignment surgery if you VOTE for Fox and the
City.
