Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for June 7, 2015 – Aspirations and Reality repost

Note: this was originally posted with the wrong episode attached. I tried to fix it and it seems like problems persist so I am just creating a whole new post so that subscribers will get it. Sorry for the problems, listeners. On the upside, the number of people who noticed and cared was pretty gratifying. Thank you.

In this episode, I play a song by Steve Conte; I talk about the smallness of what prevents action; I talk about beer and how the term “session beer” kind of impugns the craft beer movement; I discuss ceasing to drink sodas; I talk about topics that came up from Marc Gunn’s and Derek Coward’s recent podcasts; I close by talking about the gap between aspirations and reality.

My New Podcast – Pull Box Picks

elric-balance-1.jpg

Out of the blue, I started doing a new podcast for Derek Coward‘s Reader Feed called Pull Box Picks. I decided I wanted to do a review show of short episodes I could record in my car, and Derek has generously built such a platform for podcasters. It’s a meta-feed made up of various focussed sub-shows. As far as I can tell, mine is now the only one on there that isn’t focussed on specific characters or series. I might have broken the premise but oh well. I flat out love a few of the shows in that feed such as Ronin Rabbit about Usagi Yojimbo, Devil in Your Ears about Grendel, and the Love and Rockets show.

I’ll put the first episode here in my feed as well. On it I give my review of the new series from Boom Studios Elric: The Balance Lost. I’m torn whether to do it with all episodes or just this one. I’ll let the EGC subscribers tell me. The default is just this one, but if popular sentiment runs the other way I have no problem putting them all in.

I had so much fun doing the first episode. I recently received my newly purchased Zoom H2 Recorder. I spent the drive into work profiling how different settings sounded, and on the drive home I recorded this show. I did another one today that I’ll upload soon. I’ve been highly non-prolific with the EGC podcast for years now, and the baby doesn’t help anything. The fact that I haven’t gotten around to recording my seventh anniversary show is telling. Recording a five minute show about comic books, doing minimal editing and uploading it to Derek feels like podcasting heaven to me. Perhaps this is how I get my groove back.
