Epicinsanity here. I have a few pieces of business that I would like to throw out to the community. Many of you are aware that BlizzCon 2013 is just around the corner (November 8 & 9). This will be the first time I’ve ever been to BlizzCon and I am pretty pumped for it. With BlizzCon, there is an amazing event called World of Podcasts. This event is a huge event set up by Ceraphus (The Sundering, Azeroth Pirate Radio), Lignar (Epic Podcast), Medicakes (Epic Podcast), Xantar (Holy Shatt) and Xia (The Sundering). This event is a meet and greet where you are going to be able to interact with all different types of podcasters, podcastees, and community personalities. Best part is podcasters can finally hang out with the people who actually put up with them talking on the internet.
I’m excited about the event because I am pumped to meet the people in the community, and maybe a podcaster or two!
I’m not hear asking for YOUR money, I’m just asking for you to help Epic Questions support World of Podcasts. More information on that down the page.
The second thing I want to inform the community about is that Ghemit (@GhemitHunts on Twitter; GhemitHunts.com) is doing a 24 hour stream for a Cure! All the money raised from this event will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. His goal is to raise money to help find a cure, and I want to help him easily reach his goals.
You may be thinking, “But Epic, this has nothing to do with Warcraft?!” But Breast Cancer does. You may be shocked to hear this, but women do play World of Warcraft. And breast cancer doesn’t just happen in Women. Earlier this year my Aunt was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. It’s been a really hard time for my family. She’s a fighter, and I want to help find a cure! Instead of just throwing my money at the Foundation like a spaz, I want to help Ghemit reach his goal.
I am not asking you to donate money to the stream, or to the Breast Cancer Foundation, but I am asking you to support to cause if you feel the desire too. But I am going to ask you for your support today.
How You Can Help:
Here is how Epic Questions is going to support Ghemit’s Live Stream and also support World of Podcasts.
For every Question, including segment questions (Know Your Host Hot Seat, “Would” of the Week), that the show receives from TODAY (October 5th, 2013) to October 31st Epic Questions will donate $1 to both World of Podcasts and Ghemits Live Stream for a Cure.
So if we get 10 questions, $10 goes to World of Podcasts, and $10 goes to Ghemits Live Stream. But you want to get your questions in NOW because Ghemit’s stream is on October 15th starting at noon until October 16th at noon. The max amount that I will be donating is $100 to EACH event, so a total of $200.
Epic Questions is NOT asking for your money, you work hard for it, keep it in your wallet/purse/man bag (Kilroy has one of those). But send us your questions, and make me open my velcro Superman wallet and donate some money!
For those who have never heard of Epic Questions, we are a World of Warcraft podcast that answers questions from the community. We try to bring two different perspectives to each and every one of them. No question is off-limits as long as it is World of Warcraft related. We have answered some really random questions, to some very serious questions about gun control/video game violence.
So, send YOUR Epic Questions to us!
