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.

    EGC Interview Saturday Jan 10th at 10:30 PM EST with Evo and Sheila

    5255105158_e3e3c9ebb3_o

    I did an interview with Garrick van Buren via Google Hangout last week and had an absolute blast doing it. That interview will be published to the podcast as soon as I can get it together. I wanted to do it again,and give people a little more warning this time.

    Tomorrow, Saturday the 10th of January I am going to do another Hangout with Evo Terra and Sheila Dee. They are leaving their home in Arizona, not for California like Loretta but for … nowhere and everywhere. They are going nomadic, starting in Europe and making it up as they go. We’ll talk about why, how, wtf? All the burning questions.

    The hangout page can be found here. It will be broadcast live on YouTube. I will try to get the user interaction stuff working. I’m a relative novice to this but my guests know more than I do so maybe they can talk me through it. This will be at 10:30 PM EST, 0330 GMT and whatever that is in your local timezone. The recording will be available afterwards for those busy or asleep.

    I’ll even put this little embed here. My understanding is this will show the conversation live when it is happening. We shall see.
