The Tumblr account and its mirror Twitter account were created and modded by anatsuno with help from Helens78. It was updated regularly between 2012 and 2013--initially on a daily schedule--and sporadically after that, with a final submission posted in 2016. This is presumably due to a lack of new submissions.
Hey! Welcome, we’re glad you found the platypus!
This Tumblr is currently (wo)manned by anatsuno (yes, all lowercase) with the generous help of Helens78.
If you get confused by some of the terms used in the jokes, we recommend looking them up on http://fanlore.org
And if you don’t know what podfic is, you can probably start with this post!Keep the submissions rolling in :))
Why a Platypus?
Anonymous submissions included comments on all aspects of the podfic experience, from the points of view of writers, podficcers, and listeners; it touched on the specifics of the podficcing process as well as on the wider discussions and debates happening in podfic fandom.
- Anonymous asked: I know nothing about podfic, due to some bad early listening experiences of "aah! someone is hissing in my ear!". I know resources, and thus recording and general sibilant quality, has improved greatly since the early days-- but I have no idea where to look to figure out the ins and outs and standard practice.
