#33: Thrown Into the Unknown

A lot of things are happening at once. Someone bought the house we’ve been living in and we have to move soon. We’re also getting a new car and my partner’s leaving for India for a month. My stress levels are through the roof! I spend most of this episode thinking about things and how my time here might be extended. I also talk about my new toys and new recording equipment. After the break, I talk about the car and that I’m also having some slight health issues as well which makes me a little sad. (Possible hospital stay coming up…)

Fishing for Feedback

Do you listen to my podcast? Would you mind answering a few little questions about it? You don’t even have to provide your personal information if you don’t want to. (Well, you can if you want to or want me to create an account for you.)

I’m mostly looking for new ideas and improving on what I’m already doing.

As I’ve always said, I’m not looking to make podcasting my career or anything like that. I am, however, interested in developing the underlying software so that perhaps I can sell a service at some point (to other podcasters, audio providers, etc). I just want to be entertaining enough in the meantime too!

So, if you would be so kind, could you fill out the few questions, and optionally, if you’re interested, I can set you up with an account to help do a little testing?

Nevermind – I changed my mind 😉

Thanks heaps! (And no, I don’t know the muscly Indian guy with the fish. I swear to you that I was looking for pictures of the fishing nets in Kerala but yeah, this caught my attention.)

#32: A Year of Podcasting

It’s been one year since I posted my first episode of this podcast! A huge thank you for those of you who have been listening for this long! I talk about the future of this podcast, new equipment, and the redevelopment into Complicated Noise. I’m also developing a system to reward those of you who link to me, leave feedback, etc. I also chat about what’s happening lately and finally getting a new car.

TIPped Off

It’s been one year of The Idiologic Podcast! Can you believe it? Instead of throwing a huge party and inviting all the friends I don’t have here and making a huge speech, I’m just going to say a huge thank you to all of you who have popped in every so often to hear about what’s happening in my life. I know sometimes it’s really not all that exciting. I’ve said it a dozen times: I don’t expect that to be what I’m remembered for after I die anyway.

But, there is one thing I can tell you is that a name change is coming because well, I was never that impressed with the name of my podcast. It doesn’t really make much sense. I am not even really sure what an Idiologic is. I don’t expect anybody else does either because it’s pretty much misspelled anyway.

NOT the cover… even I know it’s ugly.

I’ve been in the process of renaming my podcast to Complicated Noise. It won’t be really changed much as far as content goes, but I hope that it gets better, especially at the end of the year. I’m looking forward to keeping the project going and to make it better. I’m pretty excited to get back to tthe USA and start recording again.

That’s why I’ve been really quiet lately (that and work has been keeping me busy). When things are working how they are supposed to, I will share it with you here.

I’ll talk more about this in my next podcast episode. 🙂

#31: USA-Bound (in Nov)

So, I’ve booked my trip back to the USA for about 10 weeks starting in November. I talk about my upcoming trip and my anxiety/stress levels with work and the crappy stuff I order from Wish.com. (This might seem like one of my ‘forced’ episodes because, well, it was. If I put it off, it was likely that I would get lazier and lazier.) I’m here though and that’s something, right?

#30: Too Soon?

It’s been about 5 days since I last recorded, so I stumble around a bit. I talk about my uneventful holidays and the next holiday on Thursday, ANZAC Day.

#29: Peep Show

Happy Easter to you! In this episode, I talk about my past Easters, what I’m planning to do this year, going back to the USA and my draft plans of what I’m going to do.

#28: Inferiority Complex

I talk about my inferiority complex and how it’s both hindered me and what I’ve been doing to overcome some of my problems related to it.

TIP #27: Small Town Talk

I talk about my partner and me arguing over who is having the busiest days (with work and his visa application) and the distribution of housework, growing tired of the small town stuff, work junk, and work email stops me recording. I might sound a bit drunk in this episode, but I’m not. It’s Benadryl/antihistamine hangover. 😉

TIP #26: News and Views

I talk about what’s been going on lately. I’ve acquired new technology, talk about work (and drop hints about what I do professionally), start to rant about anti-vaxxers (this little juicy episode is coming soon), and I give some pretty solid (or liquid…) advice at the end. (The music at the beginning is from Animal Crossing. It’s my favourite: KK Faire.)
