NaPodPoMo 2008

“What are you doing every day in November?”

Apart from National _________________ Awareness Month, November is NaPodPoMo. Let’s go really slow with this one. NaPodPoMo was created using NaNoWriMo as a base. NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writers Month) started in 1999 and the idea was to write a novel in a month. Anyone who writes over 50000 words in November is a winner.

Last year in 2007, the concept of NaNoWriMo was adopted for podcasting. NaPodPoMo (National Podcast Post Month) is coming up.  Both NaNoWriMo and NaPodPoMo take place in November. Despite the name, both events take place within and beyond the borders of the US.

Using experience gained with Erk Pod Mini, Erk decided to take part in NaPodPoMo this year. Because November is the 11th month of the year, the aim was to do a minimum of 11 minutes each day for November in addition to regular Erk Pod episodes. That certainly was achieved!


Erk knows that he could NaPodPoMo pretty easy because of doing Erk Pod Mini mostly uninterrupted from January to May this year. But that is not where NaPodPoMo ends for Erk Pod. Erk invited co-host Drue, Orange Tim and Squeak to join in as well. So the plan was for Drue, Orange Tim, Squeak and Erk to do separate podcast episodes each day. These episodes can be heard via the Erk Pod Mini feed. And we did it! Thanks to everyone!


There will be no change to regular Erk Pod episodes.

There are pages for each NaPodPoMo aka Nannapoopoo show from the Erk Pod Podcasting Commando Team. Audio and show notes (as written by each host) can be found on each show’s page.

More info will be placed here as the month goes on.

Erk – Echo Romeo Kilo One One

If you haven’t been paying attention, Erk is the host of Erk Pod. He hasn’t decided what to call his show for NaPodPoMo yet. Having said that, he has experience in daily shows having done Erk Pod Mini for 5 months earlier this year. As a result of that, he thought that he would invite Drue the co-host, Squeak and Orange Tim along for the ride.

Drue – Da Novemba Advencha (DNA)

Drue is the co-host of Erk Pod. His show is called Da Novemba Advencha. This will be the first time that he will be producing a podcast and will do some (if not all) episodes with Ben the Podcast Trader as well as other guests.

Warning – may contain explicit content and adult themes. Listener discretion is advised.

Squeak – A Podcast For November

It’s November and in the spirit of NaPodPoMo, Squeak is getting into the spirit of the month with his daily show called “A Podcast For November.” But what happens if you decide to keep going past November, Squeak? After hearing Erk Pod and being a guest on Erk Pod on various episodes and Round Tables, Squeak decided to start a podcast called Squeak Pod that lasted one episode. However with more water under the bridge, we will see how he goes for NaPodPoMo!

Orange Tim – Despatches from Agent Orange

It’s a big change from turning up and sitting in front of a microphone and talking but Orange Tim is preparing for a new challenge. For November, he will be doing a daily podcast for NaPodPoMo and is even now talking about a weekly podcast after that. You will be able to hear all of Tim’s shows on the NaPodPoMo combined feed and the Erk Pod Mini feed. You can also hear and download them on this site each day.
