Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for September 30, 2013 – “Don’t Give Me A Story When I Want Information”

Here is the direct MP3 download for the Evil Genius Chronicles podcast, September 30, 2013.

I talk about my podcast listening workflow and my mostly frustrating search for a satisfactory Android equivalent; I continue to talk about the podcast economy and Flattr’s possible role in that; I use the professional poker world as an analogy for how this might work; I talk about how little I care of most issues that inflame the social media lately; I discuss about how I don’t want my information as “stories” despite being told repeatedly that is the way we need everything.

Podcast Yearly Statistics

Podcast Yearly Statistics

I was curious about these stats because of the #dogdaysofpodcasting  event and my recent return to a regular publishing schedule. Here are the number of shows I have published broken down by year:

2004:   64  (Started in August)
2005:   85  (First full year)
2006:   46
2007:   24
2008:   15
2009:   11
2010:   10
2011:    2 
2012:    5
2013:    41

What you can see from this is that in less than nine months of 2013, I have published more episodes than the previous four years, and I will soon surpass the previous five years. 

Admittedly, there are different scopes at play. 2010 and earlier tended to be longer episodes with music and more production. 2011 and later tend to be shows recorded in my car. There's a bit of an apple and orange situation, but I am pleased to be more prolific. It definitely sucked when I went to publish and episode and realize it had been six months since the previous one. 

Thanks +Kreg Steppe for giving me the kick in the butt I needed to get back on track!

I discuss that specifically and also point out that the notion that technology is why our kids are worse is an ancient idea; I talk about the book Generations by Strauss and Howe and use Dr. Laura to refute the nostalgic notion that things used to be better; I talk about how most of my friendships are now a hybrid of online and off in a satisfying way.
