NaPodPoMo is now here!

EDIT: In the Erk Pod universe, it is now the start of NaPodPoMo (National Podcast Post Month) with Erk, Drue, Orange Tim and Squeak producing separate daily podcasts. We have been preparing and TODAY is time to speak up and get the job done! You can follow all the action via the NaPodPoMo page on this site with show pages for each person. You can hear all 4 shows on the Erk Pod Mini feed or the combined NaPodPoMo feed with many of the NaPodPoMo shows on the one feed.

New Podsafe Music provider for Erk Pod!

Erk is pleased to announce that Erk Pod can now feature music from Ariel Publicity. For some time, Richard from the Wasting Time podcast has been playing music from Ariel Publicity’s artists. However, it was not until the most recent Geek News Central podcast that I learnt that Blubrry (Erk Pod’s podcast community) now has a relationship with Ariel Publicity.

So Erk Pod now has access to a lot more music. During a Round Table, we usually play about 5 or 6 songs. On the weekly Erk Pod episodes, would you like to hear a song too?

Stay tuned to Erk Pod for a lot more entertainment, talk and music!

Rant Cupboard for Richard

I saw this open Fire Hydrant cupboard at work the other day. Before I closed it, I got a photo of it. I thought of our mate Richard from the Wasting Time podcast and how he likes to rant. I thought that the Rant Cupboard would give Richard a laugh and some cover art!

Photocopier FAIL

Last night I was wanting to do some photocopying at the Fire Control Centre and I got what I think was an error message.

I only knew it was an error message because it was in red and I was not getting my copying done.

I am presuming it is written in Japanese!

Erk on episode 133 of Hyper Nonsense

Hyper Nonsense episode 133 – 114 minutes

[Right click to download episode from Hyper Nonsense]

[Hyper Nonsense website]

After more than 5 hours of podcasting on Saturday for Erk Pod Round Table 10, I was at work on Sunday afternoon as Mr Shed. I took my laptop to work and was doing some editing when I saw a message from Shawno from Hyper Nonsense who on Twitter was looking for someone to record an episode with him. So I put my hand up and spent nearly the next two hours on the show.

During this time, I was working and you will get to hear that during this episode that was recorded by Shawno while I was (safely) on my Nokia N95 on Skype. During the recording I went to KFC for dinner and (safely) moved some trains around the depot. We covered various topics including a wrap up of Erk Pod Round Table 10, train driving, travel costs, NaPodPoMo and a lot more. It was a lot of fun talking to Shawno. It certainly helped the day pass by a lot quicker!
