Over the past few weeks, several of my peers in the podcasting community  have reached the milestone of 100 shows.  Congratulations to Mark and Bob at the Canadian Podcast Buffet, Isabelle and Dave at Broca’s Area, Mitch Joel at Six Pixels of Separation, and Javier, Gerard and the crew at the Hands and Feet Show.  The Bob and AJ show is at show 98 and should be able to release their 100th show before Podcasters Across Borders in June.

My current episode of For the Sake of the Song with Kyle Heimann from Popple is Episode 50.   I was feeling a little down that it will be some time before I reach my 100th episode, then I started doing soime math.  I currently have  6 more shows ‘in the can’ to be released between now and the end of June.  With podcast extras, and other special episodes I have 65 produced shows on my For the Sake of the Song site.  I also produced 25 audio podcasts for my Lenten multimedia project, 40 Days of Catholic Media on my Catholic Canadian site. We produced 14 episodes of the Podcamp Toronto Podcast this winter.  My recording of my brother in law, Drew Beatty’s podcast novel, White Trash Land has 23 sections.    Since October 2006, I have hosted about 20 episodes of the Librivox Community Podcast.  I have also completed 89 sections of public domain books and poetry for Librivox.   There are probably a couple special one-off projects with groups like Twisted pines that I’m overlooking as well.

Just a sec while I do the math here.

65 plus 25– carry the one,  add 14 plus 23, then 20 more add 89 equals…

236 audio programs that I have produced in the last 18 months or so.

(give or take a few)

Well none of my projects is currently near the century mark, I do believe I’m amassing a fair body of work.

Enough of blowing my own horn.  I now return you to the regularly scheduled conversations with some wonderful songwriters.

— Ductapeguy’s Podversary

This episode of the Librivox Community Podcast marks my (ductapeguy’s) one year anniversary of podcasting. To celebrate, Jim Mowatt and I had a wide ranging skype conversation. I really consider being a Librivox volunteer and helping to produce the community podcast was my University of Podcasting. During the conversation we talk about current news around the Librivox community, as well as my other podcasts, For the Sake of the Song, and White Trash Land.

Sean’s Really Bad Review

Sean and Jim discuss a terrible user review Sean received on podiobooks.com and the librivoxian response to it. The discussion continued into the time honored, “What if I suck?” into styles of reading and the privilege and responsibility it is to be a reader of another person’s words.

I have no guest for Episode 4, just little old me and 2, count ’em 2 brand-spanking new songs.

 

 

 

Theme Music: For the Sake of the Song (©2003 S. McGaughey)

Last week I was deeply moved by this picture in the Toronto Star on Thursday March 29.

 

angels1.jpg

The picture, by Cathie Coward, from the Hamilton Spectator shows the impression left when a 5 year old boy fell 9 stories from a balcony– and lived to tell the story. That very day I wrote the song, Angels (© 2007 Sean McGaughey). I hope it moves you as much as it moved me. The article and picture can be found here (from the Kitchener-Waterloo Record).

 

Every week the volunteers at Librivox.org choose a public domain poem to be recorded by as many volunteers as possible. This week’s poem is Beautiful Soup by Lewis Carroll from Alice in Wonderland.

Song #2 Beautiful Soup ( Written by Lewis Carroll Arranged by Sean McGaughey). I have dedicated my arrangement of Beautiful Soup to the public domain.

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 podiobooks.com. .
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.

Listen below for the official

      White Trash Land trailer #1

and

      White Trash Land trailer #2

Feel free to download these trailers for use on your podcast.



The last two days were very busy internet days.

  1. I set up this blog and domain https://ductapeguy.net.
  2. I was featured on
          Episode 37
    of Bill Dey’s Country Music Podcast.
  3. My audio recording of my brother-in-law Andrew Beatty’s novel, White Trash Land has been accepted for distribution on podiobooks.com. It should be available for download in the coming weeks.

All in all, an insanely busy week, but it’s all good.
