On My iPod

I thought this would be a good time to share with you lovely folks the things that are on my iPod and any thoughts I have on them currently. This isn’t a review of any of them per se. You can be that if they’re on there, I enjoy them to some degree (unless it’s something that I do plan on reviewing later). It’s also worth noting that I have several podcasts that are in iTunes waiting to be updated.

Decoder Ring Theater – Decoder Ring Theatre presents new stories and characters inspired by the classic broadcasts of the Golden Age of Radio. The crimebusting exploits of The Red Panda – Canada’s Greatest Superhero! The mystery of that hardest-boiled of detectives, Black Jack Justice… all this and more in full-length, full-cast recordings.
Commentary – I’ve been listening to this podcast for years. The variety of stories is great and most if not all of them are family safe. If you’re into old school radio drama this is a fine choice.

Every Photo Tells – On first day of every month we present a photograph on this site and follow it up with at least two short stories inspired by it. We may come up with different stories about the main subject or completely unrelated tales about what is happening in the background. The stories are released in the form of a fortnightly podcast available for free download from this website. Guest writers provide additional stories based on the same prompt, increasing the frequency of episodes each month.
Commentary – I’ve written some stories for this podcast. It’s fun because I get to hear stories from friends. The best part is the readings by Mick and Katarina.

The Roundtable Podcast – Each week, Roundtable hosts Dave Robison and Brion Humphrey – joined by authors, publishers and other literati – invite writers to present ideas for stories they’re developing. What follows is a no-holds-barred discussion of the story’s plot, character, pacing, and theme, in an attempt to transform rough concepts and unformed ideas into literary gold.
Commentary – This podcast has undergone some changes. The description above is for the backlog, well worth listening to. Lately they’ve been doing more topical shows.
