Save the Date: Relay FM Meetup WWDC 2017

This year, WWDC is moving to San Jose, and Relay FM will be there. We are hosting a meetup on Monday, June 5th, from 7 - 9:30 PM at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles.

The event is free and open to all ages. There will be beer, so if you want to drink, you'll need your ID on you. We aren't doing a live show this year; this is just a good, old-fashioned social event.

This event is sponsored by MacStadium.

We will have tickets available in early April after Apple's WWDC lottery is complete.

To be alerted when tickets are announced, sign up for a one-time email list. They will go fast.

Our event is dedicated to providing a harassment-free event experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of event participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate including Twitter and other online media.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the event organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of event staff immediately. Staff will all be wearing a lanyard displaying the Relay FM logo and their name. Venue security and staff will also be on hand.

Event staff will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.

Announcing Almanac, with Andy Ihnatko

Today we are thrilled to unveil a new show that Andy Ihnatko has been working on. Almanac is an audio exploration of all of the things that pique Mr. Ihnatko's interest. He'll be covering the news of the week that has caught his eye, as well as bringing together a cavalcade of interesting characters to discuss topics ranging from the arts, to modern life, to technology. In Andy's own words, 'You'll never know what you'll find inside, but you'll find it interesting'.

Andy has been such a pleasure to work with as one of the hosts of the Material podcast, and we couldn't be more excited to be working with him on this new show. We're really excited to see the ways that Andy is going to be pushing the format of his show in to wonderful and varied areas, to create something different to what you've heard before.

Episode 1 of Almanac is available today, so go subscribe now!

Introducing Mixed Feelings

Today, we're very pleased to announce the newest show on Relay FM: Mixed Feelings.

It's a show about news, politics and pop culture.

Every episode, hosts Quinn Rose and Gillian Parker talk about their favorite stories of the week. Topics vary from the serious to the silly, with most episodes featuring at least one random current even that has nothing to do with ... anything, really.

Mixed Feelings is a new kind of show for Relay FM, and we are super excited about it. Gillian and Quinn are great together, and while their points of view on the world don't always agree, the show is always respectful, thoughtful and entertaining.

You can subscribe to Mixed Feelings a bunch of different ways:

Relay FM for iOS Update Adds iMessage Stickers

When considering the next update to our app, we didn't have to look any further than Myke's sticker-covered laptop and iPads.

You can now cover your iMessage conversations with artwork inspired by your favorite Relay FM podcasts. Bringing jokes from the shows into your conversations is easy as a tap and drag on your iPhone or iPad.

Our app is powered by Tapjet, an amazing platform for building and updating the content within iOS apps. Testing new stickers and content is as easy as uploading to a folder for previewing.

Version 1.5 of the Relay FM app is free and can be downloaded from the App Store now.

Introducing new Relay FM T-shirts and Stickers

We're happy to announce new t-shirts and stickers are now for sale over on our Merch Store:

Both shirts are printed on TeeSpring's Premium shirt in a rather fetching gray. Sizing information can be seen on the individual product pages.

We are keeping the old t-shirts on the store until stock is depleted. They've been marked down, so if you want one of that design, act quickly!

In addition to the new shirts, we have a sticker using the art that Myke got tattooed on his arm.

We don't recommend you apply these to your arms. That's going to sting when you take it off.

Both items are in stock today and will ship starting tomorrow, September 16.
