The results of The Geek Life’s first “Iron Brewer” are finally here; with a rare, live recording of all the Geek Lifers in the same room! SPOILERS! Commentary on the Doctor Who 50th anniversary is also discussed! But after that, we get into the beers that were created, with the challenge ingredient: Honey!
Today on the show, “insomnia”, Mat listens to the voices in his head tell him to do his homework, Breanne ruins her Mother’s shopping trip, Dan is a cellphone magician, and Fish finally tells us a tale scarier than her Badyear Tire story.
Mr. Chris (from Playing with Props) joins Ben Carver and Fes Works for another newscast edition of The Webcomic Beacon! Comic news and discussion mostly includes a discussion about fair use, and how to meet your heroes. Very full episode for a return Webcomic Beacon of the newscast kind!

From people being complete jerks and outright stealing or cutting out the credit, to the people reposting it without thinking, it’s a huge problem in the social media work and the creatives world.

Ok! The last webcomic review until January 2014. A new request for submissions for review requests will be put out in mid-December. The next “trial run” will incorporate a podcast version and/or video version, in addition to the article itself. We’ll see how that works out.
So, a quick heads-up about the Webcomic Beacon Reviews, Trial Run. There will be one more after this, and then December will only have Comic of the Week picks. We will open for another round of review submissions in December, for a new bout to start in January.
The Webcast Beacon Network (aka the WCBN) has moved to a new server! Hopefully the transfer went well (and it appears to have), but please let us know if you find any broken links or missing content!
Welcome to the experimental, Monthly Press Release post! I don’t promise that all submitted press releases will be posted on these, but we’ll see how this will go. For now, we’ll be playing around with assorted press releases, including book releases.
While there are many ways to contribute to the WCBN and its shows, including submitting your own original article, one can also submit promotional information via Press Releases. While I would encourage everyone to read the entire FAQs page first, I’ll give a quick overview on what we are looking at.
