EGC Clambake for March 30, 2008

Here is the direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for March 30, 2008. I play an audio promo for our Create South conference, and a song by Chris Yale. I talk about the new MacBook that I’m doing the show on, apologize that things aren’t quite the same when I reach for them and about how I feel like at age 40 I still need adult supervision. I talk about screwing up seeing the Siderunners play live and then play a live Siderunners song. I walk down the well worn hallways of discussing the economy and our scary economic times. I play an unreleased track by the amazing Jill Sobule and mention her interesting album funding project.

The audio on this show is not perfect by a long ways, mostly in the levels. This were just weird enough on new versions of the OS and Quicktime that I had a hard time getting everything the same. By next show I hope to have these kinks worked out.

    I used to wonder the same thing you guys did… how that guy afford that $80K car? What does he do? Turns out he leases his car. Or worse, he used his magic equity and bought it on his line of credit.

    I think you’re right to be mad about getting sucked into the economic downturn. People (with access to an order of magnitude more money than us put together) leverage themselves to the hilt, then bail. This time enough people did it that has rippled to the mainstream and touched those of us with sound fiscal responsibility.

    Leave no post or podcast mentioning the Siderunners uncommented; that’s my motto. Especially since “Kick in the Caboose” is my favorite ‘runners song. Good show; loved the Chris Yale song, and the economic observations.

    I could ramble on about economics here, or I could do it on my own blog. I’ll take the latter route; stay tuned,

    Good show!
