At Podcamp Toronto, I hung out a bit with Doc Wu. He had a wealth of knowledge about podcasting, a great sense of humour, and a never ending bag of the neatest recording gear. This week, I am the featured artist on the Buffalo Live! Music Podcast with Doc Wu. He interviewed me about my performance and my music. A good portion of our discussion concerned Librivox. He certainly puts in a good word for me and Librivox on the podcast (not to mention playing a whole whack of my music Smile ) .

Last week I posted that my friend Russ Clayton played the Duct Tape Song on his RussTV YouTube program for children. This week he asked me to be his guest on RussTV: Episode 4- Guiters and Banjers.

Russ had to heavily edit the program to fit it into YouTube’s 10 minute limit. I have the audio of the whole show.

On March 10, I played at a benefit bonspiel for the Minesing Swamp Unplugged Festival. While I was there I recorded a few episodes of my new podcast: For the Sake of the Song: Conversations with Song. I also learned podcasting hard lesson #1. A little ambient noise is OK in a live recording, but recording live shows 30 feet from the refrigeration room of a curling rink is not OK. There is a lot of hum in the recording, but it was great to talk with Steve. I had not seen him perform in over 6 years.

To begin, I’m planning to release episodes biweekly on the odd Thursdays. I have recorded a couple of shows and I plan to release one this week. In the meantime, listen to my song,

White Trash Land Cover

For a surprise Christmas gift, I recorded the novel White Trash Land by my brother-in-law, Andrew Beatty. Andrew wrote the book a couple years ago and you can read the whole thing on his blog.

The recording of White Trash Land will soon be available as a podcast novel on .
Think of it as an old-fashioned radio serial with the internet. Stay tuned for announcements of how to listen to the podcast novel chapter by chapter.
