10155853_10152382430364365_6530021521251584133_nToday on the program we make friends with a gentleman that sounds like god, Joshua Beard. He is a photographer traveling Asia to teach kids about creativity. Do we really need to say anything more than that? I don’t think so. Go back and read that sentence again…

He is so awesome, that we spend almost ten minutes chatting with him. Well really, we spent over an hour talking to him and cut it down to the most informative 10 minutes. And there was still so much more to say. But we can’t do EVERYTHING for you. Listen to the podcast, and then check out his blog: www.strangetinypeople.com. Trust us, you will be glad you did!

azog

Today we bring you a BONUS episode – all about everyone’s favorite over-sized lump, Azog Greater Goblin! Or at least that was the plan… But Azog is too to be bound by clocks or schedules. Seriously, if it is a fancy or expensive clock, he should not be anywhere near it, bound or not. Seeing as how time is money, and money is basically non-existent over here, we could not waste the recording session. And the nasty little gnomes in line behind us were adamant about starting their gardening program on time this week. So here it is: Waiting For Azog.

chai

Everybody loves Chai! It is like the sheer essence of Autumn in a single gulp. This is what the Greeks meant, when they talked about the ‘Nectar of the Gods’. But like any good Greek tragedy, our friends from Sparkle Chai are in trouble. Their carriage has been felled, their finances tested, their mission of mercy to bring Chai to the needy masses of goblins has been placed in jeopardy, and they might just pissed of Zeus by not sleeping with cows. I mean, we don’t know how it actually happened, but that is the best guess I have got.

Anyhow, Bucky and Emily are our favorite Chai people. And heck, lets be honest, some of our favorite people period. And they need help to get stuff fixed and things rolling to the first festival of their season, Spoutwood Farms May Day Faerie Festival. And that is where you come in. Go to their site, support their fundraiser, get Chai. Easy right? Seriously. Do it. Right now. And reap the rewards of being a loving, and supporting fan. www.gofundme.com/SparkleChai2014

Or don’t… in which case there will be no Chai, and all treaties are off, and the goblins will be cranky, and we don’t take any prisoners. Just saying. The first option is way better for everyone.

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.

Here are the links to the websites of our four favorite Faerie Festivals:
Festival of Legends – April 26th & 27th – Chapel Hill, NC.

Spoutwood Farm’s May Day Faerie Festival – May 2nd to 4th – Glenn Rock, PA

Maryland Faerie Festival – May 10th & 11th – Darlington, MD

NY Faerie Festival – June 27th to 29th – Ouaquaga, NY

dali_pma_05_17We were supposed to get together and record this weeks podcast… Instead, Wedji and Azog were all excited about this new game they had found and insisted we try it out. Something about digging up graves and collecting the moustaches of famous dead people. Sounds gobliny enough for me! And then Azog had this awesome idea for a new segment of the show. So today, you get a bit of a backstage look at what we do when we aren’t exactly doing what we are supposed to do. Enjoy!

Oh yeah – you can find the game we played here: http://www.amazon.com/Moustache-Name-that-Stache-Game/dp/B00A0E0ZX8

hissing cockroach like what Travis put in his mouth.  VS.  Fluffy! Wedji's pet bug

Today on Goblin Talk we get back in touch with our good friend, Travis Fessler. (www.pickledbrothers.com)
We discover the secrets of google, other things you can put in your mouth, and why genetically modified food might not be that bad for some folks. As always our show is short, to the point, and reeks of insanity. But don’t take my word for it – give it a listen.

Our very first holiday special! And in honor of the occasion (and the fact that a few folks have bought swag already – you guys rock!) we have created an extra special extra long podcast! This one clocks in at a whole 6 minutes and 10 seconds. That is 23% more awesome! And just what is so special about this episode? The winner of the nose picking poll speaks out, Wedji dishes on the secrets of Goblin beauty and dating, Gandersnitch reveals his “unauthenticated” romantic entanglement, and we figure out what to do when you are dating noisy musicians! Check it out, today. Or tomorrow, if you are busy today. That’s ok with us too… Slackers.

travisfessler

In this episode we chat with the amazing Travis Fessler of Pickled Brothers Circus from Cincinnati, Ohio. As a professional circus freak, and thus a kindred soul to Wedji, he regales us with tales of his exploits while we discuss pickles, circuses, and cutlery.

As always, it is only five minutes long! So listen to it already!
There are no excuses! Resistance is pointless… Or something like that.
