    Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for August 20, 2009 – “Fifth Podiversary”

    Here is the direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for August, 2009. I play a brand new song by Rocket City Riot; I talk about the first five years of this podcast, how I got here and where I want to be and where I want to go in the future; I play a special song from the Gentle Readers; I celebrate our medium in my own special way; one more brand new song from Rocket City Riot and it’s on to the second five years of this show.

    My MP3s didn’t have an album name in the metadata, but in fact the Rocket City Riot album is titled Saturday Night Angels.

    EGC Clambake for August 19, 2008 – “Fourth Anniversary, Big Whoop”

    Here is the direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for August 19, 2008. I play a song from Rocket City Riot and then try and fail to read some user mail; I play a song by the Harvey Girls; I discuss this being the fourth anniversary of this podcast, why I started doing this show and why I continue and how I feel about the state of our medium; I mention New Media Expo and Michael Geoghegan and the “death of podcasting”; I play a song by Glass Eye and then groove my way on into the night.

    This turns out to have been an unusually foul-mouthed episode. I guess it happens when you wind the monkey up. That’s why I disclaim this up front, kids.

    Rocket City Riot Drops

    I feel paternal about this item. A long time back, this podcast was serializing the new Rocket City Riot album one song at a time as he finished them. We were doing a short interview every Saturday, which was a lot of fun. At least one of these was done with John Mark while he was in Bangladesh. Well, that album is now out and available for purchase from Magnatune. RCR was the first band I ever paid money for at Magnatune, and I’ll be doing it for this one as well. High energy indie rock and roll that not only moves your booty and makes you bang your head, but also sticks it to the man! It don’t get better than this.

    EGC Clambake For August 29, 2006

    Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for August 29, 2006.

    I decide on the spur of the moment to throw myself a second anniversary bash for this podcast (which began on August 20, 2004 – we start the party early around here, you frigging late-comers). I play the music of friends of the show – Paul Melancon, Rocket City Riot, Jonathan Coulton, the Gentle Readers, Steadman and Michelle Malone. I talk in the interstitial bits about life and love and loss, about why I podcast and why I care and who I care about and why we all need the little bits of joy we can scrape up in this shitty life we are in. Thanks for sticking with me, on to the next two years and beyond.

    Clambake Episode for July 24, 2005

    Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for July 24, 2005.

    Today is Rocket City Riot day, with our weekly interview and song from John Mark King; I talk about doing interviews via Skype; I play an out of context quote I find funny; I talk about and play a song by the Kropotkins, whilst pointing out how comforting I found it to live close to Mo Tucker from the Velvet Underground; Wired Jesus is responding to my show about god; I play competing clips from David Coursey and Lawrence Lessig; out of time, must go.

    Once again, I didn’t quite complete one of the main thoughts. When I was saying that the big media guys make a big deal about how the amateurs aren’t as good as the pros (which I suggested be filed under “no shit Sherlock”), the conclusion that I didn’t say was “that the pros are relying on that fact for their livelihood, they should be frightened at how close the amateurs are to them in quality and the speed with which they are closing the gap.”

    Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for June 12, 2005.

    A new experiment begins as I premiere the new Rocket City Riot album one track at a time and kick it off with an interview with John Mark King and play the first song; I play a promo for the Escape Pod podcast; I talk about whether I was “attacking” the guys from Echo Ditto (short answer: I don’t think so); I discuss the beginnings of my thoughts on “blockbusterism”, why I think it is harmful and why podcasting should fight against it; I play a song by Jill Sobule and toodle. This should in general have better sound levels than the first few Audio Hijack Pro episodes as I kind of figure out what I’m doing in this new setup. Also, I managed to get rid of most of the latency so I wasn’t slowly driven insane by the delayed echoes of my own voice.
