Initially I had planned to have a Content Blues podcast hosted here on the blog, but because I don’t have a WordPress Business Plan and don’t intend to shell out for one, that won’t be happening. Instead, I switched to Spreaker as a distribution service for both this and the Shallow & Pedantic Podcast. The point of Whatever: A Content Blues Podcast will be to collect all the shorter posts (Quick Reviews and such) into an audo format, and leave the rest of the blog to the longer, essayish posts.
This went up on the Patreon last week for subscribers, and went up on iTunes and Spotify not long after. It a podcast in theme of earlier episodes: exploring the gulf between a novel and its film adapation (in this case, The Shining) and what it is that Horror does. There’s some loud mike action in the early part of the episode: we were recording through masks and Mike brought his a little too close. But that evens out after the first stinger.
Now would be a good time to repost that Patreon link. There’s a new issue of Unnamed Journal out this month, and the way to get it is to be a subscriber ($1 a month) or buy it direct from our Gumroad. More on this in the coming days.
We’re three episodes in on this endavour now. Below is the most recent episode, recorded in March. We planned to do it monthly, but circumstances have gotten in our way.
Recently via Skype we planned out our next set of episodes, so we should be able to turn them out at a regular clip once Normality 2.0 is fully downloaded. YouTube channel link here, that you may mash that subscribe button. It’s also available on iTunes.
Of course, the best way to keep up with all our Shallow & Pedantic doings is to subscribe to our Patreon.
So I talk about sequels. Irony, far out.
Incidentally, I decide that there are new “seasons” of this podcast when there’s been a really long break between doing them. I’d like to do them more often, hopefully I will.
I call it a New Season when I start again after a Hiatus. Usually, I change the cover art, too.
In this episode, I talk about the future: how social media is the thing we love to hate, and how analog records came back from the grave.
In the lastest in the new season of my Podcast, I lament Disney’s devotion to live-action remakes, defend the adverb, and amuse myself by saying “blog” too much.
After an unforeseen hiatus, Thumbs Down, Thumbs Up returns! We discuss the darkness in the American Political Climate as seen in the reactions to the March for Life incident, And we wax… poetic about the Poetry Foundation’s app. No sponsor ship from the Poetry Foundation or anything, we just really like the app.
Too Much TV is Not a Stranger Thing.
The episode is short, compared to others, but I was able to get it written and out in a quick period of time. I find that meets the doability threshold that busy working folk need to actually create content. In any case, it’s free to listen.
