Erk Pod 146 – Show Notes. “A Massive Launch for Mixer V3.0!”

Erk Pod episode 146 – 104 minutes

[Right click to download episode]

Welcome to a massive episode 146 of Erk Pod. This was the first episode recorded using the new mixer. Erk and Drue in the Erk Pod Studio are joined by Orange Tim on Skype with Squeak joining in shortly after the start of the show. As this was the first recording with the new mixer, it was a good test prior to Round Table 10. Erk & Drue are aware of some echo and feedback in the episode and we need to eliminate the source of that.

Indeed even after Erk and Drue called time on the episode, the Zoom H4 recorder was kept running and then we return to after finding another story that just couldn’t wait until the next episode. As a result, this is a MASSIVE episode!

  1. This was a top episode, guys. Had major fun listening to it. I always get a good laugh when Drue gets impatient with bunny.

    People talking on mobiles on public transit don’t bother me. As long as they’re not screaming, of course. New mixer sounds good. I think it’ll be a good fit for the future needs of the Erk Pod empire.

    And don’t worry. I won’t be looking for any royalties.

    What would be a typical commute for someone in SLO, Shawno? I’m glad you enjoyed the episode. It was a lot of fun to both record and listen back to later.

  3. Commuting inside the city of SLO by car shouldn’t take more than 15-20 minutes most days. And that’d only be if you were driving from one extreme end of town to another. By bus, however, is a different story. Takes about 20 minutes to get from where I live to downtown, and then at least another 15 to get anywhere else from there. If you’re busing it to the northwest side of town, from where I live, that’ll easily cost you an hour each way. Fortunately for me, I rarely need to do that.

    Shawno, I’m lucky that I live directly on a bus route. It’s generally a half hour service except for Sundays which is hourly. Depending on traffic, it takes about 5-10 minutes from my stop to the train station. It takes about 15 to walk the same distance albeit on a more direct route.

    One problem that we do have is that while the train times have been changed, the buses haven’t changed so there is sometimes a massive gap between bus and train.

    Having said that, it takes me (at best) about 30 minutes door to door to get to work in the car (40km/25 miles) which is mostly freeway driving. I’d be lucky to do the train/bus option in an hour. So in the 15 minutes that it would take for me to walk to the train station, I’d be halfway to work. No prizes for guessing which mode of transport I most use……

  5. I love that when y’all were listing off female listeners of Erk Pod, I am the very first one mentioned. :) !

    “I know what I find more annoying… bunny alert!” Priceless! Made me giggle. I also laughed at “why didn’t you swerve”, and the suggestions about what to do with a seven foot inflatable condom. So many parts of this show made me lol. :) Wonderful!

    Hyper Nonsense Awareness month in May? I love it! And, there’s a Dyslexia awareness month? Who knew?

    And, no, sorry Erk! It’s not me who does the “Mmmmm …. very good” sound that we use on Hyper Nonsense. Sorry to disappoint. It’s a sound clip from Iron Chef, (Japanese Version). But, I could probally fake it for ya sometime :)

    NaPodPoMo = National Podcast Post Month. I have been declared “the poster child” for this project, because I started my Inside My Head show on the first day of NaPodPoMo last year. Yes, it is one podcast a day for the entire month of November, and yes, it is open to international podcasters as well. Something like the writer one, and likely inspired by that.

    “Twitter twitter hahaha.” So happy that made it into a show!

    Sounds like Catherine isn’t just the youngest podcast listener, she’s now also the youngest podcast guest as well!

    Looking forward to Round Table 10 :)

    Jen, mmmmmm very good! ;)

    Glad you enjoyed the episode! It was a lot of fun to not only record but also to listen back to.

    And we have joined in the NaPodPoMo action, too! ;)
