Sundays with Jonas: Show #3 (August 19, 2007) 2/2

August 19, 2007

Part 2 of 2 – leave us some questions for next week’s broadcast!

Sundays with Jonas: Show #3 (August 19, 2007) 1/2

August 19, 2007

Another Sunday Morning with Jonas, this time from Boston. For some reason, Hipcast keeps publishing after the first 10 minutes… so yet again we have two segments. I’ll work on fixing that later. Also, as Jim keeps reminding me, we need to get these into an RSS feed… that’s another weekend project. Enjoy!

Sundays with Jonas: Show #1 (July 15, 2007)

July 17, 2007

For those of you who listened to the podcast earlier this week, this is the same podcast, just edited and cleaned up a little, as well as stitching the two versions together… it’s for EchoRadio, but we’ve been having some difficulties so I posted it here…

I’ve started a new podcast series, a Sunday morning conversation with my father-in-law Jonas Aarons. He is a rather amazing polymath and an impressive conversationalist. What is our show about? Well, everything. A Ben Jonson quote comes to mind:

“Here are the raw material of facts and thoughts, wood, as it were, so called from the multiplicity and variety of the matter contained therein. For just as we are commonly wont to call a vast number of trees growing indiscriminately “a wood”, so also did the ancients call those of their books, in which were collected at random articles upon various and diverse topics, a wood, or timber trees.”

This week our discussion included an examination of the changing nature of correspondence, Marshall McLuhan, bagels, Neil Postman, and how to appreciate art. You can download the MP3 here – Sundays with Jonas: Show #1 (July 15, 2007).

Sundays with Jonas, Part 1

I’ve started a new podcast series, a Sunday morning conversation with my father-in-law Jonas Aarons. Our first show got interrupted into a couple of chunks, so here is the first part – there’s about 30 seconds of silence at the beginning – I’m working on editing the two parts into a single file, but for now:

Junglecasts Forever!

December 28, 2005

Last March I visited Chiapas, Mexico (photos here) on the invitation of my friend Dave Pentecost. While there, we recorded several podcasts while romping around the jungle with Dr. Ed Barnhart, founded of the Mayan Exploration Center. We put these podcasts up on EchoRadio as the Junglecasts – and they have gathered quite a following. Most recently, Wired News featured them as part of “Beyond Porno: Free iPod Content”, a collection of cool free content for your iPod. The junglecasts have also appeared on and a number of other places, but far and away my favorite was this email Dave received:

Just letting you know these Jungle Podcasts are great and they are being heard as far away as Antarctica! Keep up the good work, cheers.

Podcasting Delight

May 17, 2005

Although my true podcasting home is with EchoRadio (you can even get the Junglecasts in a special section now), on Monday I was at the Personal Democracy Forum and couldn’t help myself. I was so jealous of Brian Reich’s sweet podcasting setup that I had to take to the mic myself for some podcasts. Most notable was the podcast about, a blog that uses Harry Potter to analyze the political dynamics of the country. I’m not kidding. Take a listen; it’s short & worth it. I swear.
