Here's the thing, ok, for the uninitiated. Podcasts are radio shows, basically, that are meant to be downloaded as mp3 files. This feature is the one that is the revolutionary part of it. Because we never have to miss a show again. And we can listen to the 7am news at 8am. And of course there are archives. Now certainly you can go visit the website and download it like one by one, but you can download special programs to automatically download it. Podcasts are acompanied by show notes, sort of a summary of the show.
First, an introduction to podcasting in general.
Wikipedia's article on Podcasting
Ok, the program to download automatically.
Now this program is particularly good because it's cross-platform, meaning you can use any kind of feed (.rss, .xml, .css, blah) without worrying about incompatibility. I use it. User-friendly too.
Right. Now here are two links so far to the two best podcasts I have heard so far. I stumbled upon them just picking podcasts off iTunes 4.9 to subscribe to.
Delta Park Project | Comedy Podcast
hosted by Jason Ruby and Anna Johns (husband and wife team)
Might be abit dry. I dunno. It's my kind of humour.
Ok anyway, moving right along...
Feast of Fools
hosted by Fausto Fernos and Marc Felion
Technically, it is comedy. Strictly, it's gay.
No no, as in, it's gay. Queer.
It's a splendid show hosted by a gay couple. And if you're getting turned off because of the word gay, you should be ashamed. It's a radio show, not an orgy for goodness' sake. Listen to them for their wit and humour.
Well I will be putting up more links as we go along, as time passes... As I get older...
In other news, I got a haircut from Speed today. My hair was making my head itch, and seeing me scratch my head when it's filled with millions of relatively long hair is not a pleasant sight. Neither is combing my hair.
The woman who cut my hair was probably on speed. She was totally lightning. Just cli-cli-cli-cli-click. And my hair was falling all over my face, body... And when I put on my specs again.
And she did some splendid double-talking, I suspect, that shut me up. Something like, yes of course if you ask me to make it short it has to be thinned isn't that no sideburns no layering this is how it would look like.
Fine. I'll just spike it or something. Or just leave it alone lah... At least I don't have to worry about it every like 10 minutes or so, starting from 6.45 in the morning.
Why me? Why me?!
