Our animal companions depend upon us to do the right thing by them… to be kind, to be caring, and to be good friends. Unfortunately, sometimes we let the animals down, and that’s where the SCPA (Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) steps up.

Join Claire and Ian Corlett as we help the British Columbia SCPA provide much-needed care and protection for pets and wild animals that haven’t received the treatment they deserve. Your support gives stray animals a second chance, hunts down people who are abusive to animals, and provides low-cost pet care. When you donate, your dollars will be further stretched by a one-for-five donation (up to a hundred dollars in matching funds) by Caerdwyn, so click-donate-done!

And as a special incentive, there’s another hundred bucks in matching funds if we can beat how Scootaloo and Applebloom did… that high-water-mark is $1182. Who’s the best charitable Crusader? Let’s find out!

Ask not for whom the Sweetie Belle trolls.

On Monday the 28th of July, at 5pm PDT on Stay Brony My Friends… she trolls for thee. Brace yourselves, it’s Claire Corlett!

scheming belle

These two are up to no good.

Claire, the craftiest Cutie Mark Crusader of them all, will be joining us to discuss… well, crusading, Speedy and Stretch, how to be a dinosaur, and about a billion other things.

As if that’s not enough, Sweetie Dad Ian James Corlett (who himself is an animation voice actor with a filmography a mile long… I mean, holy crap, he’s freakin’ GOKU) will be along for the ride. In addition to everything else, he brings his own pony cred as Silver Shill, that sneaky sidekick of the Flim Flam Brothers… yeah, we’ll be keeping an eye on him…

These two are kinda dodgy too…

If there’s ever proof needed that talent runs in families, well, here it is.

Cutie Mark Crusaders Manly Guest Cutie Marks!

(So what WOULD Goku’s cutie mark be..?)

Manly Challenge – the Multiple Sclerosis Society

This week’s challenge, brought to you by Charlotte Fullerton in honor of her friend Lydia Mayo, is to support the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. And we’re gonna do it!

manly challenge - MS - Charlotte

Multiple Sclerosis is a terrible disease that causes its sufferers’ immune systems to attack their own central nervous systems, causing paralysis, chronic pain and blindness.Two million people around the world are affected, and that’s two million too many. The good news is that good progress is being made in understanding its causes, and there are treatments being developed which slow the progress of the disease once diagnosed, but that’s far from victory. There is no cure (yet), and no way to restore the damage (yet). And that’s where we come in, fellow bronies.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is leading the fight, and we’re going to support them, every step of the way. Your donations will go directly to research and to assisting people with this lifelong burden. As always, your donations will be matched one-for-five (up to a hundred in matching funds) by Caerdwyn, so let’s stretch those dollars!

Keep ‘em walking.

Suited for This Guest

On Monday July 14, at our normal 5pm PDT time, Stay Brony My Friends is happy to welcome Charlotte Fullterton. We are crazy-excited!


She knows what ponies wallow in.

Charlotte has written quite a few episodes (most recently, the more-fun-than-anything Power Ponies), but the crowning jewel is what many people consider to be the best episode in the entire series: Suited for Success.  Come, find out whether you pack warmly for going into pony-exile!

Manly Challenge: “Because I Am A Girl”, part 2

This week’s manly challenge, brought to you by Maddie Peters, is to support “Because I Am A Girl“. We’ve done it before, and we’re gonna do it again!

manly challenge - Because I Am A Girl - Maddie Peters

Plan Canada, one of the most effective charities in the world, is taking on one of the most shameful problems in the world: underfunded female education. There are many places where education for girls is not considered important, or even actively discouraged. Girls in those places are also last in line to receive medical care. Ladies and gentlemen, this is wrong wrong wrong, and for this reason the “Because I Am A Girl” project was created. If the creeps running things in those parts of the world won’t fund educating or caring for their girls, it’s up to us to help Plan Canada to do the right thing.

When (not if… WHEN) you donate by going to the donation page and clicking “Sponsor Me”, remember to include your name so we can enter it in the thank-you prize drawing! Maddie has helped us out by creating the donation page herself, so all we have to go by for the drawing is the thank-you list. Make sure your name is on it!

And as always, Caerdwyn will match one-for-five, up to a hundred dollars in matching funds. Stretch them dollars!

SPECIAL CHALLENGE: We’ve visited this charity before, when Michelle Crieber (Applebloom) gave us this challenge. We did great, booking 700 dollars. But can we do better for Scootaloo? EPIC DONATION BATTLES OF EQUESTRIAAAaaaaaa… BEGIN

Scootaloo, you drive us Maddie

This time for sure! It’s time to welcome Maddie Peters, the voice of Scootaloo, to Stay Brony, My Friends!


Maddie will be joining us on Monday June 30 at 5pm Pacific. We know that’s where you’ll be at that time, right? Time to give the mad(die) props to Scootaloo, ask your questions, and show her the good time that the hardest-working Cutie Mark Crusader deserves! I mean, really, if you weren’t bawling like a baby at the end of Sleepless in Ponyville, there’s something massively malfunctioning. Off to the Reponification Gulag with you!

Scootaloo. The cure for atrophied feels.

Manly Challenge – The Alzheimer’s Association

Alzheimer’s Disease is one of the most dehumanizing of all conditions. Watching someone you love slip into dementia over the years, watching everything special about them erode into a mere memory, watching a strong mind slipping away… this is an evil nobody should have to endure. And it’s time we put a stop to it.

The Alzheimer’s Association is supporting promising preventative and theraputic research, and is supporting families and individuals already affected. Join us, join our challenger Kazumi Evans, and show your Element of Generosity as we fight Alzheimer’s Disease together!

By donating, you are quite literally helping to save minds from destruction. As always, your donations will be matched one dollar per five by Caerdwyn, so magnify your bucks!

It’s the right way. It’s the brony way.

A song so beautiful it must be Rarity

This Monday, at 5pm PDT on Stay Brony My Friends, we welcome the singing-voice for Rarity… the one and only Kazumi Evans. *FAINT*


Art by the amazing Muffinshire@DeviantArt

There is a reason Rarity and Luna have angelic singing voices, and it’s Kazumi. We all knew that, of course, but there’s so much more to know! What’s this about Chinese sword-dancing? And what’s this about working at arch-rival Mattel? Come get the scoop!


Holy alicorn horns, Flutterbat… she even LOOKS like Rarity.

Manly Challenge – Epilepsy Foundation of California

This week’s Manly Challenge, brought to you by Amy Keating-Rogers, is to support the Epilepsy Foundation of California. We are on that like AJ on an apple pie!

Epilepsy is one of the most misunderstood diseases in the world. When people hear of it, they imagine whole-body seizures… and yes, that’s a part of it. But there are also blackouts, uncontrollable changes in mood, and other sudden crises in the sufferer’s brain. The worst thing, however, is that there still persists medieval fears and superstitions; there are still places in the world where epilepsy sufferers are persecuted in the name of religion.

Fortunately, epilepsy is much more controllable than it used to be. There is still a great deal of work to do, however, and some of the most critical work is dispelling the myths surrounding epilepsy. That’s where we can help. The Epilepsy Foundation of California is one of the leaders in public education, as well as supporting research and supporting patients in their daily lives. Your donations (which as always are matched one dollar per five by Caerdwyn) will to towards the goal of eliminating this problem once and for all.

It’s what we do. Damned RIGHT it’s what we do.

She’s baaaaaaack

Who is back? She is back! That’s who’s back, on Monday July 2 at 5pm Pacific on Stay Brony My Friends and–

Of COURSE we’re talking about Amy Keating-Rogers, writer extraordinaire, awards-nomination-collector, and ninja. Didn’t think she was a ninja? That’s what they all want you to think.


this is what a deadly ninja looks like

Join us to get all the low-down on season 4, thrash-metal ukelele tips, and hollow meteors filled with Oreo cooking filling (I’m not joking about the latter, it’s a thing!).
