This person or team is new to podcasting in the past Parsec eligibility year, becoming a significant voice that has contributed to the community as a whole.
I'm working on finding audio segments from the show to submit to the Parsec Awards Steering Committee. If you'd like to help, please let me know some of your favorite parts from the past year (from May 1, 2010 to April 30, 2011).
I need to provide 10 minutes from the show, with up to 3 segments. If you think the podcast is ineligible in any of the 3 above categories, please let me know. Also if you could let me know where some of your favorite segments from the show are (episode number and starting time mark), that would help.
Emails/comments regarding this are eligible for the GOWM Comment contest - http://gowmainframe.blogspot.com/2011/04/geek-out-contest-1st-year-celebration.html
