Summer Brooks from Dragonpage.com on Technorama!

Last night was a lot of fun. Summer Brooks from Dragonpage.com was kind enough to join us for the entire show on Technorama. Over at Dragonpage.com, they produce 3 podcasts. Slice or Sci-fi, for mainstream news of Movies and TV, Cover to Cover dealing with print media, and Wingin’ It, which is whatever comes up and she works as producer, and fact checker.

What started as an interview turned more into a chat. It was a lot of fun to do, and I am sure a lot of fun to listen to.

So go and have a listen!

Engadget 1985

Over at Engadget they have a post that looks like it was written in 1985, complete with images and ascii art. It is a great post.

Back in June on my podcast Technorama that I co-host with Chuck Tomasi we did something similar. We produced the show as if it was June 15th 1987. It was a lot of fun to do…but thinking like it was 1987 as opposed to 2005 made my head hurt.

Calling Doctor Floyd!

Welcome to another edition of “Kreg’s: How’d I Miss That!”

My buddy Chuck Tomasi whom I co-host Technorama with, pointed me to Doctor Floyd. I am kicking myself in the rear trying to figure out how this one got by me. This podcast is like crossing Jimmy Neutron with Rocky and Bullwinkle. It is short, about 3 – 5 minutes each, and funny. It is done in the style like an old serial radio broadcast.

Season 3 starts Monday August 1st, but to catch up Seasons 1 and 2 are available for download off of thier website. Since the episodes are short, you can buzz through each season in about 30 minutes.

Definitely worth listening to.

Podcasters stats surge because of iTunes…

I have heard a lot of Podcasters talking about their surge in listenership since iTunes 4.9 was released. I am sure that is taking place some, but I wonder how much of the surge is not new subscriptions to podcasts as much as it is people “Previewing” their show from within iTunes. I believe that would count as a download…

Just thinking out loud.
