The Grizzly Cast

Posted by on Jul 31, 2008 in Uncategorized | No Comments

I have had in the back of my mind for quite some time the notion of doing a podcast. I have all the hardware and software to record, edit, and publish right here on this computer. So I finally took a little time and learned how to bring it all together into an actual podcast.

It was nearly as easy as advertised.

So after a couple weeks of tinkering, writing, and researching I am happy to introduce The Grizzly Cast. This podcast will be slightly different than the others you might already subscribe to. Instead of news or race reports I wanted to focus on telling stories, anecdotes, experiences. It will more or less be an audio version of the type of content you read here.

I have long been a fan of This American Life, and Garrison Keillor. I love the way they paint pictures with words and music and sound. And so, the cast will be my attempt to mimic their style, and hopefully establish my own along the way.

I have set it up so you can subscribe in iTunes, Google Reader (or any other feed reader), or simply listen at the website itself. There are two episodes available right now. Give them a listen, and let me know what you think!

    I shouldn’t have listened to it at work. It makes me want to ditch out and ride.

    My only request/suggestion is that you try to put it out at regular intervals (e.g. every Sunday night) so I know when to expect it and can look forward to listening to it.

    As a regular TAL listener, I like the style of it. Thanks for doing the work on it.

    Hey, did you know you can roll your own podcast without the assistance of, or need for itunes? A podcast is essentially a formatted xml file that uses RSS to reference your media files and allows the user to subscribe with the software of their choice.
    Feel free to look at my podcast file for ideas:
    (download and unzip it)

    Keep up the great work, and I hope this helps!

    Nice Adam. The “bacon story” rocked. I too have seen the amusement in the eyes of passers by during a hundie or solo.

    Your voice makes me want to take a nap now. It’s very Morgan Freeman like. 😉

    Funny, last night I had a video clip about the PTSB3 installation done and ready to download, and I killed it because I didn’t like the sound of my voice! HA!

    Keep up the creativity.
