Antony Johnston and the Incomparable Network

I am a fan of Antony Johnston’s comic The Fuse and have read some of his work on series like Daredevil. I listened to the episode of Surviving Creativity on which he was a guest, which was how I found out about his podcast Unjustly Maligned on the Incomparable podcast network. I love the high […]

Henry Rollins and Silly String

I haven’t been in the best mood this week, but this video of Henry Rollins being shot with silly string by his assistant just made me laugh and laugh. I have started listening to their podcast, and looking at that page I ran across this. Funny stuff. Also on:Twitter

Podcast Moment from the Early Days

Chuck Tomasi sent me this photo that he found from the first New Media Expo (called I think the Podcast and Portable Media Expo or something like that.) There are four early podcasters visible in the shot. I’m not sure about the cats in the background, if you can identify them let me know. Cool, […]

Matt and Mattingly Goofiness

From a recently listened-to episode of Matt and Mattingly’s Ice Cream Social: Matt Donnelly: “What is that stuff on fancy cakes, the shiny decorative balls?” Paul Mattingly: “Fondant?” Matt: “No, I’m still looking.” That one made me laugh like a fool. They really snuck that one in. Also on:Facebook Twitter

Editing Fun

I am working on the podcast with my friends from Beyond the Wall. It is a big scale, long duration job editing a 150 minute conversation with five people. Additionally, at patron request I am for the first time adding in chapter marks for the conversation. That’s another big job as well as completely new […]

My Audacity Wishlist Feature

If I could get a FOSS genie to grant me one wish in the open source world, it would be for Audacity to have pitch correction on the playback so that when you listen sped up you can do it without the chipmunk effect. Especially as I am reviewing and editing a 2.5 hour file […]

Jimmy Dore on WTF Podcast

Here’s a funny quote from Jimmy Dore on this episode of WTF: “One day my brother out of nowhere starts complaining about the estate tax. ‘Hey, we got to get rid of this estate tax.” I said, ‘Phil, what are you talking about?’ He said ‘That’s when you die and you have millions of dollars, […]

Bill Gates on Nerdist

I am listening to Bill Gates on the Nerdist podcast. I know it is one of those things that is a “good get” for the program in that he’s an extremely famous person. However, the first time the handler jumped in to steer the conversation back to the Gates Foundation, I thought very hard about […]

Kickstarter Hatred

I am currently listening to Episode #2 of Ditchdiggers with Mur Lafferty and Matt Wallace. They are discussing the Stacey Jay Kickstarter fiasco and how the YA community gave her enormous grief about asking for readers to support the creation of her work. Which is the basis of EVERY KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN EVER! On Thursday evening […]

What Say You, Fast and Furious?

I really enjoy the What Say You podcast with Brian Quinn and Sal Vulcano. I went about things bass-ackwards, first listening to and enjoying their podcast enough that I decided to try an episode of the Impractical Jokers TV show. I’d expect most people went the other way around. I was already a listener of […]

How I Play Music into Google Hangouts

tl;dr – This post is about how I finally got a full setup where I can play arbitrary computer audio into a Google Hangout or other conference; save a copy of the audio to my local media with no repeating; and use a single microphone for all of the above. This information is Mac OS […]
