Good day mastercasters, masterdebaters, and master guests.

I'm curious why you folks don't do much in the way of merchandizing? I don’t know a lot about it and am curious what some of the things are that you need to consider.


Here is another question, what merch would you like to sell? Personally I’d like to buy a set of Bronyville headphones.


Have a wonderful convention,


-Pie Pie


P.S. Did I get you there Cur Cider, I doubt it. You have become wile and wise in your old age. Still I have enjoyed delaying your tabletop sessions. Sadly I have run out of sickness to spread and with the convention wrapping up my influences as to the inner workings of Sandycon will no longer be able to reschedule meetings. Oh well, your sadness was entertaining for a time and I should soon have a tabletop podcast to look forward too. Mwahaaahaaahaaa…

P.P.S. The upcoming Nightmare Night fire status had nothing to do with me. My plans totally did not get out of my control… Though perhaps Sandy can reassure us that fire safety will be sufficiently implemented at the con.

Dear Fla ... er ... Apple Cider and Chef Sandy,


Since AC there was having some issues remember exactly where my site was a week or so ago now I though I would be nice and throw a link in here ... I mean its not like all of your past projects are on there or even that this pony show is.


Oh wait, it is.


However the site which Sandy actually found my current archive for on the internet archive is - now admittedly it is currently being re-modeled, however the by-year mega feeds of every podcast on the site are up and running on the 'mind our dust' page - at least up to 2012 anyway.


So yes, please feel free to click over and hear AC in his past incarnation before he caught fire and turned into a small pastel equine on such shows as Clawcast and Anthropodcast.




Kyte Pheonix



p.s. AC if you see that weird Flain person around would you tell him he still owes me copies of the Clawcast reunion and one of the final Anthropodcasts.


p.p.s. None of Sandy's previous work is anywhere on this list because naturally Chef is an innocent pony who would not be associated with anything but innocent podcasts such as this one.


p.p.p.s ... AC you so did to know about the robbery at Chef's place way back when - I believe the semi drunk comment was 'and in order to help out our fellow podcast in need please send donations to' ...

Howdy Sandy and Cider, I'm just wondering how y'all went about setting up your podcast seein' as how I want to set up one of my own.  Thanks a bunch and great show by the way!

Dear Apple Cider, Chef Sandy, Starry Night, and wonderful guest(s),

I'm afraid I found this amazing podcast too late and I am only halfway to where you are now (so much pony time to love). But I've noticed that many fanfics you have suggested have been either on fimfiction or Equestria Daily and was wondering if any of you read fanfics from other websites that may involve your pony brothers and sisters? Regardless of that I have nothing else to say except you both are amazing. AC in my opinion is best host for his hilarious randomness, however I must agree with Chef that Dashie is my favorite pony. Good luck in the future and make sure to let Starry know that her opinion is always given a warm welcome from me.

p.s. Sorry for being greedy, but may I have a Fluttershy yay?

Your faithful listener,

Trey Smith

Dear Princess Celestia,

Greetings Sovereign of Equestria. We come with tidings and audio files which you can use for your utmost enjoyment. Apple Cider was joined this week by his very own Starry Night. Between the two of them getting into trouble and Starry throwing non sequiturs they managed to finish the show and give you an audio file. Could you ever ask for more? No.
