In this episode, I play a song by The Royal Arctic Institute; goodbye to long time listener and friend of the show PJ Cabrera; I no longer have the Kasey Kasem dead dog dedication memorized; Tiago Forte and his Buildling a Second Brain method is changing how I work; slow burn is definitely better than … Continue reading Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for June 10 2021 – Podcasting by Pinata

The Dog Days of Podcasting challenge for 2015 began yesterday. In this, a group of podcasters (23 this year and climbing) spend the month trying to podcast every day for 31 consecutive days. This will be my third year on the challenge and I did succeed at it both of the previous years in that … Continue reading Dog Days of Podcasting 2015
In this episode, I answer two questions from James Ghofulpo: Why did I move to Conway SC and do I ever re-read my comics? Here is the direct MP3 download for the Evil Genius Chronicles podcast, Aug 4 2015 Links mentioned in this episode: Support this show on Patreon Auphonic podcast production tool is so … Continue reading Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for August 4 2015 – Dog Days of Podcasting 1
Dear podosphere, I’m never going to consider “topping the iTunes charts” as synonymous with “#1 podcast in the world” no matter how often you try that game.
Dear Len Peralta and Brian Ibbot, re your discussion on Geek A Week about long-running podcats: You were correct about Dawn and Drew’s show being older than Coverville, however you missed a few. Both my podcast and Michael Butler’s Rock and Roll Geek Show are still going and older than Coverville. There may be others, … Continue reading Podcasting History Note
The Dog Days of Podcasting I am participating in The Dog Days of Podcasting this year, which is a project organized by my friend +Kreg Steppe. The deal is that you podcast every day from July 30th to August 30th. That's 31 podcasts in a row, which I'm not sure I've ever done even when … Continue reading The Dog Days of Podcasting
A few years back, I formulated Slusher’s Law of Podcasting, which roughly states that the more people are involved in a podcast, the less I care about it. Here’s someone who feels like I do about some multi-person podcasts: Bungie. I tried. I really really tried. Your blog is full of interesting information. But for … Continue reading Slusher’s Law of Podcasting Redux
Here is the direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for July 26, 2009. I play a song by Wolf Parade; I play a sponsorship announcement from Bob’s Institute of Time Control; I talk about vacationing in the North Carolina mountains and trying to refocus on what is important; about enthusiasm for and history of … Continue reading Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for July 26, 2009 – “The Alan Bean of Podcasting”
Partly because I think it is fun when the guys at Good Clean Fun do it, I’ve started experimenting with streaming it live when I’m recording episodes of my podcast. Thus far, I’ve only done it once. As I type this, I’m about to do it again. You can see it at my very own … Continue reading Streaming Podcasting
I pointed the other day to Cheryl Colan’s discussion of Epic-Fu. Because I’m watching old videos on my Zune, I am just watching some of the very early episodes of the precursor program the Jet Set Show. I also watched Zadi’s Karmagrrrrl blog even prior to that. The interesting thing is that as you progress … Continue reading Podcasting Art and Artifice
Here is a guest blog piece that follows the post the other day about new media serving either the audience or the sponsors but not both simultaneously. J Wynia wrote me a very thoughtful email on the subject and with his permission Iâ€™m blogging it here. Everything from here out is him talking. I started … Continue reading Podcasting and Money: Round Two
There are certain debates in new media that I’ve had so many times that I end every exchange thinking that I will never get embroiled in that particular turdfight again. The “make money fast” end of podcasting is one of those I’ve sworn off many times, just like someone who quits smoking over and over. … Continue reading Podcasting: Who Will You Serve?
Via Read Write Web comes the news that Yahoo’s podcast site is shutting down on Halloween. Very scary! I’m not neutral on this, as I have a dog in this fight with AmigoFish. It would benefit me if everyone that formerly used the Y! podcast thing (or even a fraction) would come to my site … Continue reading The Death of Yahoo Podcasting
Several years ago, I came home from the BloggerCon in Palo Alto and mused on this blog about holding a blog conference in the Myrtle Beach area. I got a lot of interest, enough so that it wigged me out a little because it meant that I’d have to really do it right. At the … Continue reading A Blog/Podcasting/New Media Conference in Myrtle Beach?
Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for October 3, 2007. This is a quick cast done in a stolen moment, mostly discussing the idea Michael Geoghegan put out in his “link bait” post about podcasting being dead as a term for those wanting to make a business out … Continue reading EGC Clambake for October 3, 2007 – “Podcasting is Dead, Long Live Podcasting”
OK, I’m being ridiculously bold and naming a rule of podcasting after myself. This is to formally encapsulate a mathematical formula to express why I don’t so much like banter-driven podcasts. I find that a lot of the shows I really like tend to be one person affairs. This makes sense since I publish one … Continue reading Slusher’s Law of Podcasting
Here’s an example of what podcasting can do that normal media just couldn’t. Derek Coward turned me on to Indie Spinner Rack. In a recent show, they had some correspondents at the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo who did a freakish level of coverage of the Howard E. “Gene” Day Prize. They recorded the … Continue reading Podcasting Use Case for Comics
I was listening to to Sam Whitmore’s Tech Media This Week yesterday. In it, he made a statement not unlike what I’ve heard him say a few times, which is that “podcasts are too long.” His particular length that he ascribed “too long” to was 10 minutes. Good gravy, Sam! He is keeping his show … Continue reading Podcasting Questions Have No One Answer
I had a plan to record a show last night, had a window of opportunity, sat down to do it and was 10 minutes into it when I realized all the files I was going to use were not what I thought they were. The interview clips I thought were levelated and ready to go … Continue reading Hitting the Podcasting Ditch
