Topic Time! - My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Memes!


Please note: You are more likely to have your email read if you begin them with a greeting and end it with your name. This way we don’t have to guess what you would like to be called. Otherwise I’ll just refer to you as “Cow Pattie.” (I’m not allowed to swear on the google doc :/) -Starry

I have postponed sending an email and i felt now would be an off time but oh well. I think i speak for most of us when I say i LOVED the table top games episodes. At first I was kind of upset that it wasn't your normal podcast but I hooked at the first ten minutes. Before i had found myself growing distant from the fandom and that was just the jolt I needed to get back in. So now for a question, do you think you will do any more of those and could it possibly be an every 5 or 6 episodes thing( or maybe shorter than that) as always i love the podcast and please keep up the good work, and starry knight if you are there I wanted you to know i was overjoyed when you replied to my question "would you like to be a tree" on your tumblr.

To the Bronyville cast,

I am a recent listener of your podcast, listening to #032 as I type this, which is a nice way to fill the break between seasons. But, anyways, my story for this email...

While taking a walk through the University of Washington campus, I saw a message on the ground scribbled in chalk saying "This way for Ponies" and an arrow pointing down the sidewalk. As a fan, my first thought went straight to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. And, with my curiosity peaked, I followed the arrow and several messages. When I reached the point all the arrows were leading to, I found an enormous chalk drawing of Applejack in front of an apple tree with Derpy hanging upside down from a branch and a boldly written message saying "Join The Herd" in the middle of the campus.

Pictures of both attached.

P.S. Discord is best character, but Rarity is best pony.

Dear AC, Chef Sandy, Starry Night, Guests, and the rest of the Bronyville gang,

  Hi. Before I start, I'll begin with basic things everyone puts in their letter. You guys are amazing! You're podcast is so entertaining and interesting to listen to. Best pony out of the Mane 6 is Rarity, but my overall favorite pony is Octavia.

  Okay! So...QUESTION TIME! How has My Little Pony effected your life? And the next question...When My Little Pony ends (which is a day I dread and I hate to bring it up)what do you see yourself doing? Will you continue the podcast?

  Okey dokey lokie! That's pretty much it!

Thanks for reading!

Dear pri- umm i mean hello fellow bronies of the Bronyville podcast, and what ever insane guest you happen to have derpin' around. my question is, what (if any) background ponies would you like to see have a story in season 3. i would personally love to see the mane six help out vinyl scratch with a gig. also i would love it if you could do a call out for me. i am a brony rapper just starting out and i just can’t seem to get out there. i am looking for other brony rappers to colab with. i am warebrony on youtube if anyone wants to contact me. thank you if you read this email and have a nice ponytastic day.


P.S. pinkie pie and twilight are best ponies. sandy, it’s ok to be wrong

Dear Princess Celestia, Apple Cider, CEREAL VELOCITY BEST PONY and most wonderful guest(s),

I am an aspiring musician, and I need some advice, or perhaps a suggestion for someone I could ask for advice or help. My musical talents are not very developed. I play a little guitar, and I understand some music theory, and I even have this great sound software, but I have no idea how to use it to record/mix things. I'm interested in pretty much all kinds of music, but I just have no idea how to go about making it. Where could I go for info, or who could I contact?

Also, I personally want to see some of Tank with Rainbow Dash in season three, it's like he disappeared or something!

And finally, I would like to wholeheartedly support Chef in his love of Rainbow Dash (insert AC disdain here)

Anyways, I love your show, and I hope to catch you guys at Everfree this summer!

Dear Princess Celestia,

Hey you, me again. I’m mailing along our latest episode to you. Sandyface wasn’t able to make the show but Cereal Velocity from Equestria Daily filled his spot. Our Guest was Amanda, a web researcher at and we have a roundtable about the fandoms perceptions, various memes, and eventually fully convert her to the herd! She was willing too! Anyway, give it a listen as it’s a fun one!
