We have had an incredible response to our Blog Talk Radio Extension for both our live listeners and our in-archive listens. This format has given Podioracket a chance to provide extended interviews and do some fun things outside our short bi-weekly podcast format. August is another out of control BTR-PR schedule! Mick Bordet, P.G. Holyfield, Christiana Ellis, and Philippa Ballantine make for a fabulous and full week.

Mick Bordet

Monday at 2:30 pm PST/5:30pm EST Mick Bordet will be joining us LIVE from Scottland. His new Podiobooks.com release Some Other Scotland has been very well received and has a growing following. This is to be our first interview on BTR-PR with a Podiobooks.com author who is out of the country. And there are three way to win LIVE on our show! Set a reminder! Thank you, Mick, for giving back in very cool and unusual ways.


1. Mick is giving away free download codes for The Lunacy Board album, “Stockholm” (currently costs around $5) music used in his book. Simply twitter the upcoming show link and include @mickbordet so he can DM you the download code. After the show airs, you can email Mick and put Podioracket in the subject line or send out a twitter with the archived show’s link. This month only!

2. There are three new characters who have been introduced in the latest episode, none of whom have been named so far. We will take one (sincere, please) name for each person who wants to give one. Mick will pick the best one for each character during the show. Chatters can give only one name so Mick will give us a brief description if the character and we will go from there.

3. The best question of the show will be chosen at the end of the show. The winner will receive a signed copy of the ‘Some Other Scotland’ spin-off short stories that have appeared on the Great Hites podcast.

Christiana Ellis

Also on Monday at 6:00 pm PST/9:00pm PST Christiana Ellis, the creator of Space Casey and Nina Kimberly the Merciless, Parsec winner, and finalist for this year, will join us live. Set a reminder!


P.G. Holyfield

On Thursday at 6:00pm PST/9:00pm PST P.G Holyfield, author of Murder at Avedon Hill, brings us the news about his new anthology Tales of the Children. Set a reminder!

Philippa Ballantine

Finally, on Friday at 6:00 pm/PST 9:00pm EST Philippa Ballantine ,winner of the Sir Julius Vogler award for Chasing the Bard, joins us to close out her contest! The winner of that ‘goody basket’ will be announced LIVE on our show. You still have time to enter. Leave a review of her latest Podiobooks.com release Weather Child, blog about it and shoot her an email so you have a chance to win. Just picture that hamper of New Zealand Goodies. Set a reminder!
