As promised, you are about to make the transition from “loyal readers” to “loyal listeners” thanks to a new addition to the State of Affairs experience. It gives me great pride to announce the first episode of SoA LIVE, featuring an interview with Brent Chittenden and Adam Grant of the popular podcast Two Assholes Talking About Nerd Stuff.
Brent and Adam have been longtime friends of the blog; we’ve collaborated on a number of projects in the past, including a three-day stint at Toronto’s 2009 Fan Expo. They graciously agreed to appear on my first foray into podcasting, and they even toned back their signature foul-mouthed style at my request. I say “toned back” because I’m still putting a parental advisory on the podcast, but don’t worry – it’s no more crass than what you usually find here.
SoA LIVE is available for download below. I would have streamed it, but frankly WordPress is not very good at that, and comparing the two minutes to download the show versus the twenty minutes to wait for it to buffer, well, I figured you’d appreciate that.
Today features part one of the TATANS interview, with part two coming later in the week. If you like the interview, check out Brent and Adam’s podcast at the Two Assholes Blog. The guys can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is still an experiment, my loyal listeners, so whether you love it or hate it I want to hear your feedback. You can leave a comment in the space below, or you can contact me directly at email@example.com.
Thanks for listening, and welcome to 2010, State of Affairs style!
