RadioZoom#65 – iTunes Frustrations; Corner Gas; Hockey Talk

Today’s episodes dives a little further into what I am trying to do with this podcast and the frustrations that I am running into as I try to progress. Also, I give some appreciation to one of my favorite television shows, grown right here in Canada, Corner Gas. Finally, some discussion about the Canucks and the television sports outlets in this country. It’s safe to say that we get more hockey here than the states do by leaps and bounds.

RadioZoom#64 – Podcasting Supporting Music; Canada Election Outcome; Voting Soundseeing

Post Canadian Election Day episode! This episode boasts more than just some info about the election and my thoughts about it. I took the MiniDisc around and captured something of the sounds of the city on election day as well as sounds at one of the polling stations. I also take a moment to highlight some thoughts about podcasting supporting music artists.

RadioZoom#62 – 2006 Canadian Election Rundown; Figuring Out the Mixer

The federal elections in Canada are the prime focus in today’s episode. Dave Olsen (podcaster – Canucks Outsider, Choogle On with Uncle Weed, etc.) chimes in with some audio detailing the election taking place on Monday, January 23rd. A newcomer to this country, he has a lot of good insight as to the process and the people involved from his perspective. Also, a brief mention about hockey and some email from listeners. Only three songs today as most of the time is spent talking about the election. Consider it an education rather than political discussion.

RadioZoom#61 – Feeling Better; Tech News; Hockey Talk

There are a few topics that we hit today that I wanted to glance over. This is the second episode this week in quick turn around fashion, but I’m getting the handle on this new mixer and feeling a lot better. Hopefully this makes up for the lack of episodes as a result of my sinus infection from last week. I hope to post another episode on Friday, if not by the weekend.

Topics for today include a RadioZoom in Tech segment about some new things from Apple, Hockey Talk about the Canucks and Sidney Crosby, and some listener feedback. I also share a handful of stories in the mix of things.

RadioZoom#60 – Sinus Infections; New Intro Music; New Mixer; UBC Museum of Anthropology

Rebounding from a hellish sinus infection, The RadioZoom Podcast is back. There are a slew of changes in this episode. First off, thanks so much to my brother’s family for the Christmas gift of a mixer to help make my podcast sound much better. I have been able to break out the Shure SM7 from the closet and create quality episodes once again. Also, thanks to Vate for his permission to use some of his music as my new intro theme to my podcast. It was time to change things up a bit.

In today’s episode, I chat a little about being sick, the new toy I have to learn and play with, little adventures in Vancouver, and a slight piece of hockey talk.

RadioZoom#59 – Big Media and Podcasting; MSN Messenger Sucks; Hockey Talk; Story About Mexico

Another episode this week as promised. For the most part, I feel like I have my mic issue resolved, but this should be resolved by the new mixer I am getting for Christmas from my brother’s family. Topics for today include some thoughts about major and non-major media outlets getting into podcasting, why does MSN suck, a little talk about hockey, and email feedback about beer, which results in a story about an experience I had in Mexico at the age of 17.

RadioZoom#58 – New Years in Vancouver; The Flu; Hockey Talk

Happy New Year! Running straight into 2006, I hope you can handle this episode of RadioZoom. In today’s episode, I talk a little about my new years celebration in Vancouver, being sick with the flu, some hockey discussion, email feedback about Canadian beer, and the music you’ve come to expect from me.

I’m still stuck with this awful headset, but not for much longer. I made some changes midway through the podcast, so you can notice a difference in my voice as it goes on. I already recorded the whole episode, so I’m putting it out anyway. I have a Christmas present coming from my brother in the next few days, so watch for the quality of my podcasts to get much better.

There’s new snow on the mountains! I said that I would post this picture in the show notes, so here it is. This is good news for the local skiers, which I’d try to be one of if I had health insurance.
