ALL THREE RECORDINGS ARE NOW LIVE.
Part 1: mp3 direct link | aac direct link New Business (Mario 3D Land), Zelda and Listener Mail
Part 2: mp3 direct link | aac direct link Nintendo Game of the Year, Radio Trivia and Memoirs of a Gamecube feat The Battlefield Bomb
Part 3: mp3 direct link | aac direct link Famicast Special feat MarkMacD/sprsk/onsen, Jeopardy Goes To Hell, and Shenanigans.

WHO?
Radio Free Nintendo, the main podcast of Nintendo World Report. Regularly hosted by Jonathan Metts (GAF user Jonnyboy117), editing god Greg Leahy, noted curmudgeon James Jones and ex-Canadian dudebro Jon Lindemann, who has a medical condition related to the hoarding of unopened games named after him.

What?
This particular event is a live podcast stream that is extended by donations to Child's Play. A Chipin link (100% of proceeds going right to Child's Play, receipts provided for tax purposes), the stream and a link to a chatroom can be found here. The stream starts at 12:00 Eastern (9am Pacific, 1700 UTC) on the 19th.

They did this last year and raised over $2500. The goal this year is $3200 AND IT GOT BLOWN OUT WITH FOUR HOURS TO GO.
2010 Site link
2010 GAF thread
2010 recordings: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

What else?
Well, it's a podcast for grown-ups. Despite the fact that this is a Nintendo-focused show, the language can and will get explicit. Especially if the last round opens up.

Last round?
As the donations increase, so does the content. This year, the goal is to go past 8:00pm (Eastern). The schedule as it stands now:

12:00 EST - Intro / New Business (Free)
1:00 EST - Skyward Sword Spoiler-Free Review Roundtable with Special Guests
2:00 EST - Listener "Mail" Call-In Bonanza
3:00 EST - Game of the Year Roundtable
4:00 EST - Radio Trivia Live with TYP and Greg
5:00 EST - Memoirs of a GameCube w/ Billy Berghammer
6:00 EST - Famicast: Live from Japan w/Gaming Jesus and sprsk
7:00 EST - NWR Connectivity Jeopardy
8:00 EST - Shenanigans!

Do I want to know what Shenanigans refers to?
This crew once set something on fire during a podcast recording and had to have a 20 minute corrections segment after one infamous episode in particular. If they're still going at 8:00, I am disavowing all responsibility for what happens.

What's Radio Trivia?
A few songs will be played from a game released on a Nintendo platform, and the audience must guess the game. First one to do so wins a prize of probable quality, though you may end up with a copy of Learning With The Pooyoos Vol. 1 if you're not careful.

If you're not musically inclined, there may be other opportunities for prizes as well.

Prizes?
Oh yeah. The first set of swag has been revealed with more to come:

Super excited for this. Last year's show was excellent. Forget how many hours it went (5?) but it was good shit. But I expect nothing less from the best gaming podcast around. They had Craig Harris, formerly of IGN Nintendo, last year so hopefully they have snagged some equally awesome guests.

RFN is a fantastic and underrated podcast. It's a shame it does not get more love on GAF. Well worth donating if you can spare the change.

Thanks, everyone! I am excited to say that the new Weekend Confirmed will include a promo for this event, thanks to Plan B. Also, we will have Jeff Kalles of Penny Arcade (formerly Nintendo of America) on one or two segments. We are finalizing plans with some other special guests, and I hope to be able to announce those to you sometime on Friday.

Big update to the OP: Full set of swag, available for Jeopardy/Radio Trivia winners and some other possibilities.

Also, schedule has been updated. The Gamecube segment had to be moved back, but it will contain Jeff "Two Ns One T" Cannata if it gets reunlocked.

Little over 3 hours to go!

Decided to stay up and listen to the first hour. Nice job. I really enjoyed the Ace Combat and Mario impressions. Best of luck in reaching the $3200.

The joys of doing it live... mild technical difficulties, stand by.

Edit: We're back. 7 minutes left in the Zelda segment, then it's an all Listener Mail section.

Radio Free Nintendo is consistently great, but the others are really hit or miss.

Jeopardy is the only segment of Connectivity I always enjoy. I usually get all of the questions right, too, because I am a fucking nerd who remembers every inconsequential fact about everything.
