New Echo episodes

In the first non daily episodes of Echo Romeo Kilo One One since NaPodPoMo in November, I have released some more “outdoor” episodes. Don’t forget that Echo is a separate podcast to Erk Pod and there is a separate website and feed.

 

Some of the recently released episodes of Echo were originally Erk Pod episodes. Regular long term listeners of Erk Pod may have heard these episodes before but new listeners would not have. This episodes are:

  • Echo 31 – Beach Pod 1 from Avoca Beach, Central Coast NSW. This was originally Erk Pod 112 and stars Erk, Drue and BJ the Research Guy.
  • Echo 32 – Beach Pod 2 from Main Beach, Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast Queensland. Erk flies solo during his road trip of 2008. Originally Erk Pod episode 117.
  • Echo 33 – Beach Pod 3 from Byron Bay, far North Coast NSW. Erk returns to the beach during his 2008 road trip. Originally Erk Pod episode 119.
  • Echo 34 – Go Kart Pod. This episode was recorded at Eastern Creek International Kartway. Originally Erk Pod episode 114.

 

Also, newly recorded for Echo was Echo 35 which was recorded during a Monster Truck meeting on Boxing Day 2008.

Busy weekend of podcasting for Erk – Some Guys In A Car, 24 Hr Podcast

Last weekend was a busy weekend of podcasting for Erk. On Saturday there was Erk Pod Round Table 12 and after party. Then on Sunday, Steve from Some Guys In a Car was looking for guests to appear on Skype so I called in from my train. You can hear me for about the first 20 minutes of Some Guys In A Car episode 32. Audio is from the Some Guys in a Car website.

Some Guys In A Car episode 32 – 1 hr 47 minutes. Listener discretion is advised.

Then a little later into my day at work after my meal break, I made a cameo appearance again from my train on the 24 Hour Podcast hosted by Todd Cochrane. Todd started podcasting at 3am Sunday my time and continued all the way through to 3am Monday. I wasn’t in the Erk Pod studio so I made do. The audio isn’t available yet but I was on during the tail end of hour 15 with Rico & Nico from Arizona.

Erk Pod Round Table 12 – show notes


ROUND TABLE 12 WITH HOSTS ERK & DRUE WITH A CAST OF VARIOUS PANELISTS
SATURDAY 20 DECEMBER 2008, 12pm Sydney time

On Erk Pod Round Table 12, we celebrate a year’s worth of Round Tables, 12 months of Drue being the co-host of Erk Pod, Xmas, New Year and who knows what else! This is the biggest (and funniest!) Round Table ever!

 

In the Erk Pod studio were:

Joining in via Skype at various stages were:

 

All music on this Round Table is courtesy of Ariel Publicity and comes from the following track list:
NOTE: We had some major recording FAIL so the audio was supplied (thankfully!) by Richard at his end via Skype. During music, we mute the studio mics and Skype so conversations normally do not come onto the recording. However, the audio you will hear was recorded by Richard so you will hear conversations between people on Skype that people in the studio would not be able to hear. Drue was on Skype for the latter half of the Round Table and he tells Erk that the conversations were very interesting. So I’m going to leave them in. I will be putting the songs played on each episode at the end of each episode un-interupted so you can hear and enjoy the song properly.
Once again, a massive thanks to Richard for saving our bacon with the audio! If it wasn’t for Richard, there basically would be no audio from the Round Table!

Merry Xmas – here comes Round Table 12 audio!

First of all, I’d like to wish all of the Erk Pod family and all of our listeners a very Merry Xmas. Now that I am full of Xmas potato, steak, turkey and ice cream, I will be editing Round Table 12 episodes so I don’t have a Nanna nap. Thanks to Richard for the audio and thanks to Drue for arranging to obtain the audio after our audio FAIL.

I hope you’ve had a great day!

Round Table 12 Update/Review

Round Table 12 was recorded on Saturday afternoon in the Erk Pod Studio and via Skype. We had a wide range of people involved including 3 people making their first visit to the Erk Pod Studio, 2 guys called Mike making their Erk Pod debuts and a few of our regular panelists.

 

All in all, it was an enjoyable Round Table and a great way to see the year out. We had a mixture of serious topics, some funny one liners, some music, some wacky stories and a lot more!

 

This will be the last Round Table and Erk Pod episodes for the year although Erk plans to record and release some Echo Romeo Kilo episodes over the Xmas/New Year break.

 

Unfortunately we had audio recording FAIL. Thankfully (again!), Richard records everything at his end anyway so we can use that. Interestingly, we will be able to hear the Skype conversations that were going on during the music. While we mute the studio mics and also Skype from the mixer so we can talk and not worry about being recorded and talking over the music, people on Skype can still talk to and hear each hour. Drue was on Skype for a while himself and tells me that some of the Skype conversations were quite funny so we’ll get to hear them because Richard’s recording recorded whatever was going over Skype. In case you DO want to hear the music without people talking over it, each episode of the Round Table will feature the song/s played on the episode in full and un-interupted.

 

I am hopeful that I can start editing and uploading parts of the Round Table after work on Xmas Eve. It is our longest Round Table ever at 6 hours in duration. When I add the songs at the end of each episode, the total duration will be around 6 & a half hours in duration.

 

When the Round Table is being edited and uploaded, the (work in progress) Show Notes will appear on the Round Table 12 – December 2008 page. Click the link at the top of the page. 

 

I’d like to thank all of our panelists for their assistance, patience and good humour this year. We have enjoyed it a lot and have enjoyed speaking with you. A special big thank you to Nathan, Shawno, Richard, Ben & Drue for all of their assistance in various ways since Round Table 1. I listened back to Round Table 1 last week and it is amazing how far we have come since then!

Erk Pod 162 “Some tea and a chat”. Show Notes

[Right click to download audio]

Erk Pod episode 162 – 50 minutes

Welcome to episode 162 of Erk Pod which is also episode 31 of Tea & Chat.

 

You may remember back to mid November where I interviewed Tea & Chat host Stephen as a part of NaPodPoMo/Nannapoopoo on Echo Romeo Kilo One One (episode 16) 

 

On that occasion after the interview, Stephen tells Erk that he had some massive software FAIL so Erk volunteered Echo 16 to be that week’s episode of Tea & Chat. Not quite one month later, Stephen returns the favour and turns the tables on Erk and interviews him about Erk Pod.  We look back to the origins of Erk Pod and we also look forward to the future.
