Verity! Episode 54 – Who Gives a Caretaker

VerityEpisode54Welcome to a spirited episode of Verity! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we vociferously disagree about the relationship and soldier issues in “The Caretaker”. It’s a boisterous discussion in which we once again prove it’s possible to strongly disagree, and yet still remain fast friends. Which Verity thinks Danny is turning into a jerkface? Who thinks he was justified in everything he said and did? Who can barely form complete sentences at the start of the podcast? And who has the plague? Listen and see!

What did you think about this ep? Is the Doctor a huge jerk? Is Danny? Is Clara? All three? And what about Courtney Woods? Let us know in the comments!

Hey, Kat here.

As some of you know I’m a member of the Alberta Browncoats which is a not-for-profit society who regularly raises money for charities through screenings, fundraisers and shindigs. All these events are relatively local but we all know fandom doesn’t stop locally.

A certain Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) wisely imparted upon us a suggestion that we branch out in our fundraising activities to share our donated goodies with the rest of the world. Unlike the residents of the Torchwood Hub, we listened to him.

This year we launched the first of what we hope will become a tradition:

An annual online charity auction. Bids from all over the world are accepted.

Items will change as the month progresses. Items so far include Firefly, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Castle, comics and MORE! Go and register, bid and then bid some more!

The proceeds of this auction will be split between Edmonton’s Youth Empowerment and Support Services (a shelter & support program for homeless teens), Kids Need to Read (a US-based children’s literacy charity), Equality Now (an international women’s advocacy organization), and the Comic Legends Legal Defense Fund.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 USD to split between these wonderful organizations.

Doctor Who items already posted include (much more coming very soon):
