Goblin Talk

A random, short format, variety show goblin podcast

And it is going to be amazing, as it has been year after year.

With Wedji, and Azog, and Gandersnitch and all of our strange magical friends, plus musical guests Frenchy & the Punk, Woodland, Jessica Star, Gandalf Murphey and the Grand Slambovians, and all sorts of other incredible talent as well.

They have a new road to the campsite, to help alleviate last year’s challenges with carriages stuck in the mud, “secret” musical revelries in the woods after sunset, and of course out favorite: Sparkle Chai! The Goblin Embassy will be there, and the Troll tribe with their bridge, and Gandersnitch’s Tea Parties, and the Elfchess Tri-Realm Championships! Listen to the episode, which will give you a taste of the vision of the festival, but don’t forget to buy your tickets and come to the party! Seriously, this is one you do not want to miss.


triogoblinsWe have decided to move to a bi-weekly format, in solidarity with… you know, people and stuff. Because you shouldn’t judge, or so they say. But do those people in turn judge those who are judging? Who judges the judges? That’s what I want to know…

Right, sorry – since people are having withdrawals from the schedule change, and are all discombobulated from the time change over in America, we decided to make things a bit more bearable and give you an extra special early episode this week! (Or late, if you were expecting it last week.) This one is all about our four favorite faerie festivals! It is also seven and a half minutes long, because we wanted to make sure all of them got a good bit of time. We also determine once and for all, which faerie festival is the best of the best!

Now, I know what you are saying – but these don’t start for over another month, and one of them isn’t even till the summer. This is true, but you have to plan now people! Buy your tickets, book your cabin, secure your tent space, take the kids out of school, come up with an excuse for forgetting Mother’s Day, and practice your emergency floatation survival skills in case of flooding! Don’t wait till the day before… Unless you do wait till the day before… I mean you can still go, even if you decide at the last minute. You could even wait till it has started and then come, that’s ok. But don’t wait till the day after, cause then you would be bored and all alone and tasked with cleaning the whole mess up.

If we didn’t name your favorite faerie festival here, it is because we either don’t know about it, have never been invited to it, or might have been banished from it, it requires us to swim across an ocean to get there, or we forgot about it in the magnificence of these other four.
