Beach Pod – Erk Pod goes on the road!

We have been talking about it for a while but finally, we have been able to lock in a time to head up to the Central Coast and see BJ the Research Guy. A few episodes ago, we mentioned doing a podcast on a local beach and this Thursday (personal circumstances permitting), Drue and Erk will be getting into the car and pointing it north.

Drue and I are also looking at doing our Bogan road trip while Erk is on holidays from work. Hopefully we will be able to do this before Erk goes on a road trip to Queensland in a couple of weeks. During the trip, I’ll be doing some recording. Meanwhile, Drue will be having a couple of weeks off relaxing while Erk is away.

Erk Pod features on “Inside My Head”

If you have listened to recent episodes of Erk Pod (especially Round Table 5), you’ll be aware of the Hyper Nonsense podcast with Shawno & Jen. On the Round Table, Shawno mentioned that Jen has a podcast of her own for people who want to hear more of her. Jen’s podcast is called “Inside My Head” and it is about what goes through Jen’s head, as the title suggests. It’s not as hyper as Hyper Nonsense but still worth a listen!

In the most recent episode here, Jen gives Erk Pod a shoutout and also plays a promo for us. Thanks, Jen! :)

Also, I have ordered a Bunny like appeared on Erk Pod Round Table 5 with Shawno & Jen (hosts of the Hyper Nonsense podcast) so I can’t wait to see how that goes once it arrives!

Massive iPod

In Erk Pod Maxi episode 104, Drue read a story about a prisoner inmate in Ar-kans-us (that’s a story in itself!) who was suing because he was losing weight in jail. In the article, the guy says that he is stuck in a pod all day and not exercising. But play the snippet to hear what happens next in true Erk Pod style.

Now I am chatting with BJ the Research Guy and he found some interesting photos, two of which are here for your viewing pleasure. The first one is an Irish iPod from an old blog post (read more here) from a blog called “Mad Irishman’s Musings”. I will have to do some reading of this blog later.

So Drue, there can be a man in a massive iPod! There are a lot more on this post here on Engadet. I wonder how many songs or podcast episodes can fit on these iPods!
