Skypestravaganza, part deaux


More skypestravaganza fun! This week I roll out part 2 of my hundredth show celebration. We talk TV (yes, you read that right), audio commentary for movies, MST3K, Macintosh accessibility, blindcasting (or not), Shelly’s “how I learned to use the Mac” story, more accessibility stuff, Frank and other podcast guests, weather in multiple countries, The Rolling Stones in Zilker Park, football/rugby/soccer/Aussie rules, you say Brisbin, I say Brisbane, the German name game, zed, magazine writing, evil iTunes 7, and miscelaneous chatting.

We begin with greetings from Joe & Lisa of Cheap Date, and end with Steve from The Holmesgrown Podcast

Show 100: the skypestravaganza, part 1


I invited friends and fellow podcasters to join me for a marathon skype conversation. People drifted on and off the call for several hours. We had a great time; so much so that I have to save half of it for next week.

This week we anticipate Podcast Expo (this episode was recorded a week before the expo), talk about the friends we’ve made in podcasting, moving, bad customer service, iTunes 7, Podshow, DragonCon, movies, and much much more.

And of course, big thanks to Bruce Murray from The Zedcast, and Slau for their hundredth show good wishes.
