podcast #9: pinging the universe

Standard

In this episode, Matt and I discuss Facebook and Twitter. I also misuse the word “demographic”, overuse the words “literally” and “honestly”, and make up a whole new word — “foresaw” for the past tense of “foresee”.  There, now I don’t have to tweet about it!

We graciously accept requests for future topics, so leave a comment if you have something you are dying for us to dissect.

[Edited to add: A kind commenter pointed out that “foresaw” is a word after all! Serves me right for using a pocket dictionary offline.]

podcast #8: the end? of print, part 2

Standard

In part 2 of our query into the end of print, Matt and I discuss books, e-books, libraries, the Kindle (timely!) and my iPhone snobbery. Matt busts out with the phrase “the democratization of distribution” which is merely one of the reasons why he is so awesome.

I eagerly await our listener Ned‘s comments on my library-related diatribe. If you haven’t read his comments on part 1, you’re missing out. Every podcast should have a Ned. But not our Ned. Go get your own.

podcast #8: the end? of print, part 1

Standard

Matt and I talk about the end (question mark) of print in this episode of “… and scene”. We had a lot to say about the topic, so this podcast comes in two installments. The first is about the fate of the newspaper. Tune in next week for the second!

podcast #7: sequels

Standard

After our “creative hiatus” of over two years, Matt is not rusty, but I sure am. In this episode, he is charming and funny, while I am bitter and annoying. My opinions on vampire novels are sure to alienate the whole family! Don’t miss this!

and scene

Standard

Once upon a time, two friends decided to podcast.  The subject: nothing in particular. The result: “… and scene.”

They took a ridiculously long hiatus for no apparent reason. But now it’s 2009, and a new episode has just been recorded …
