EGC Clambake Episode for Dec 31, 2004

Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for December 31, 2004.

This is either the last podcast of 2004 or the first of 2005 – we’ll have to see how the official scorers mark it. There is an odd intermittent clicking that I didn’t hear at record time, so I might have to burn some of that karma I talked about in the Wired article. Oh well, you podcast the audio you have not the audio you want.

In this episode, I send my good wishes for a speedy recovery to Tony Kahn; I discuss my correspondence with Russian composer Artemiy Artemiev; I play some listener audio feedback; I talk about the Wired article and Kevin Devin; I talk about how the linearity of speaking things causes me to wig out sometimes; I play a song by the Bambi Molesters and talk about sneaking them into WREK’s rotation; I talk about how I accidentally dumped 3 months of radio shows I was saving and how that made me feel free; I discuss my own issues with anal retention; play a bit from a BBC 4 documentary on Dungeons and Dragons.

EGC Clambake Episode for Dec 20, 2004

Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for December 20, 2004. Yes, I know that’s three days ago. It’s like, you know, the holidays and stuff.

This is the infamous episode recorded in Hartsfield airport in Atlanta that I wasn’t going to publish. In it, I talk about the yuppies with the stink eye in the terminal; I discuss the piece on the power laws and the “pod squad”; I play my newest favorite XMas song by American Heartbreak. In the preface, I mention Mur Lafferty’s Geek Fu Action Grip but fail to note that it is a podcast as well as a weblog. Yikes!

Flop is Flipped

OK, I’ve been talked into it. I will post the episode of the clambake recorded in the Atlanta airport. With work and preparation for the holiday houseguests, it might not happen tonight. I’ll try to steal a few moments here and there to assemble this. I normally edit out the rough spots, but when there is this ambient bed of noise, especially the announcements over the airport loudspeaker, it defies smoothing those out. Every time it happens you can hear an audible jump that just screams “EDIT” on each one, and ultimately can be more distracting than the part I edited out.

So, I relent. Expect this one to be posted before XMas, but there probably won’t be another episode of the clambake until the middle of next week.

I made a false statement in here, in the heat of passion. I say that “no one has asked me anything about Bittorrent in podcasting.” That’s not true, a few people have. I was thinking of some specific people who are exploring it and haven’t, but after I finished the episode I remembered a few who have asked for and received my input. Sorry guys, didn’t mean to diss you.
