My Podcast Debut

I had the great privelege of appearing "live" via SKYPE on my very fist Podcast on 27 October 2008.

The ERKPOD is actually several podcasts, origiating from Sydney, Australia. Hosted by Erk (of course), Drue, Squeak, Leigh "The Voice-over Guy" and various friends, the feeds including Erkpod Round Table, they also produce the Erkpod Mini, Maxi, NAPODPOMO (National Podcast Post Month), and Echo Romeo Kilo One One. They vary in length, with the Round Tables lasting several hours, but the feed is broken up in one hour increments.

I was involved in Round Table Ten (ERKPOD 151-154) which included emminent podcasters and storytelling authors Tee Morris and Pip Ballantine. (Full disclosure: I own two of Tee's books, and one of Pips, but I'll try not to let that influence me!!)

I just happened to be paying attention to my Twitter, and @druey and @erkpod sent out
tweets announcing a live recording available for viewing on their site (via ustream.tv. After Tee and Pip (may I be presumptious enough to call them that?) I was invited to join the round table via Skype. OMG...

Now, I have no idea how many subscribers they have, but as far as I was concerned, it could be 10 or 10000. They are a group of friends who meet on a regular basis, and just talk about stuff. There are no show notes, until afterwards (corrected post), and digression is not only allowed but encouraged.

To say my 15 minutes of fame was a blast is an understatement, and I was invited to be involved in the November Round Table. You can bet I'll move mountains to be there, even if I have to take a nap (yeah, I'm not too proud to admit they are a good thing) and be awake at Aussie time!

We were more than happy to have you!

If you would like to come on for an episode of Echo Romeo Kilo One One (one on one) sometime in November, let me know.


Minor correction though - the show notes are written after the show by me to give people an idea what we were talking about rather than written before hand.

We often have no idea where a conversation is going. Indeed we were not expecting to hear from you (I blame Drue LOL) or Grizzly who was in a bar at the time!

That Round Table was a lot of fun!
