Erk Pod 205 – Southern Erk & Friends. Show Notes

[Download episode – 60 minutes]

Welcome to episode 205 of Erk Pod. This episode was recorded in two stages.

The episode starts in San Antonio, Texas. Erk is chatting with Jennifer (@epodcaster on Twitter) who founded NaPodPoMo (National Podcasting Post Month) that Erk, Drue, Orange Tim and Squeak took part in last year. She also is currently co-hosting Tech In Twenty. During the chat, we talk Texas, podcasting and a lot more as we walk and talk our way through San Antonio.

The episode then moves across to southern California and the last interviewee of Erk’s American trip, Megan aka Podcast Junky (not surprisingly, @podcastjunky on Twitter). We find out what’s on Megan’s iPod, visiting Disneyland, what Erk didn’t get to see in SoCal and more. Apart from being a Podcast Junky, Megan also produces her own podcast where she tells us what  is on her iPod.

Erk’s Chat With Tee Morris at Balticon 43

Balticon 43 was a massive weekend for both Erk & Tee Morris. Tee was a great guy to hang out with over the weekend. Apart from being his usual self, he also arranged many of the interviews on “The Balticon Special That Never Ends.”

 

This interview was recorded late on Sunday night and you’ll hear a very different side to Tee than you ever have on Erk Pod. But that is the way that the weekend was. 

 

Straight after this conference, Tee was off to New Zealand for a 2 week visit talking about podcasting, social media and more. So what would Tee do on a plane for 18 hours?

Erk’s Chat With Evo Terra at Balticon 43

Depending on your point of view, you have Evo Terra to partly blame or partly thank for Erk continuing to be a podcaster. It was the “Podcasting For Dummies” book at Evo co-wrote with Tee Morris that really helped Erk learn more about podcasting and getting motivated in 2007.

 

In this interview, we find out more about Podiobooks.com, Evo’s current podcast Evo at 11 and more.

 

This is a part of “The Balticon Special That Never Ends.”

Erk’s Chat With Peter Prellwitz at Balticon 43

Peter has an extensive collection of paperbacks as well as audiobooks in the Shards Universe that he has created.  Find out more in this interview which is part of “The Balticon Special That Never Ends.”

Erk’s Chat With Richard White at Balticon 43

As a part of “The Balticon Special That Never Ends”, Erk chats with Richard White. Richard is a media tie-in writer. As you will hear in the interview, Richard writes books that ties in with pre-existing franchises including Star Trek, Stargate SG-1 and more.

 

This presents a new set of challenges for an author that does not happen when you are writing your own work. Not only does Richard need to get approval from the franchise he is writing about, he also has the fans of the series as his harshest critics.
