Projects and Podcasts Status!

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by Mike and Carrington, hosts of the No Quarter Podcast. After 125 episodes Carrington was stepping down from the show and Mike was looking for a new co-host. Based on my podcasting experience and arcade knowledge the guys thought I would be a good fit for the show. Mike, Carrington and I spent a week standing up a new website and getting the new feed added to iTunes and Stitcher. The weekend before last Mike and I recorded our first episode together and then had to wait a week for all the technical web glitches to work themselves out before we could post the show. (Yes, it was hard keeping the secret for an entire week, especially when speculation about me joining the show grew!) The show went off without a hitch, and I’m looking forward to another long run of No Quarter shows with Mike.

For those of you keeping track, I am now currently recording five podcasts: No Quarter (an arcade game-themed show), You Don’t Know Flack (a collection of stories related to old computers, games and technology… and sometimes other stuff!), Sprite Castle (my Commodore 64-themed show), Throwback Reviews (dedicated to reviewing movies from the 1980s), and Rusted Metal (a show dedicated to rock and metal bands mostly from the 70s and 80s).

To somewhat keep my sanity, I’m now doing Sprite Castle and You Don’t Know Flack on alternating Mondays. The next episode to be posted will be episode 9 of Sprite Castle, next Monday morning. No Quarter is weekly and goes online Sunday evening. Throwback Reviews is recorded monthly, and Rusted Metal is done when time allows.

At the top of this page is a link that says Podcasts. You can click it (or this one) to find web pages, iTunes links, and RSS feeds for all of those shows.

Podcasting isn’t the only thing I’ve been using my microphone for. I’ve begun recording the audiobook version of Commodork: Sordid Tales from a BBS Junkie. The original print version of Commodork contained 13 chapters. The audiobook version will contain 26. Each chapter will be followed by a completely new bonus chapter that will contain “behind the scenes” notes about writing the book along with updated information about things that have happened since the book was published. I’m very excited about this project and I don’t think it will take long to complete.

Work continues on Gastric Steps: He Said/She Said my (and Susan’s) book about gastric bypass surgery. I am still working on the book’s final chapter. I hope to finish it sometime this summer.

I’m probably forgetting some stuff but those are the ones that have space dedicated to them on my whiteboard at the moment.
