National Podcast Post Month
National Podcast Post Month (NaPodPoMo) is a challenge to podcasters to post 30 episodes in 30 days. Here are the daily episodes I posted in November 2017. In most of these episodes I share clips from some the old cassette tapes that I’ve been lugging around for years. This project gave me the right level of motivation to start digitizing and logging these tapes.

Is there a home for Liberals in the Democratic Party?
The kids get together to make some prank phone calls. Do kids still do that in the age of evil teleswindlers?
Using a shared public access television studio wasn't always convenient. But the space was inviting and the rice krispie bars were a big plus.
About eight years ago, I made a super short movie based on a story a friend told me. I called it Dollar Signs. In this video, the way I used some old interviews about work and school is similar to the audio montage style that...
My sister gets the credit for organizing a family reunion. Every detail has been considered and now the impossible has happened. Most of us will be there for my dad's birthday.

Brian and I continue a conversation about podcasting. I mention one of many aha moments where I realize that podcasting feels like the right track.
The reason my voicemail is often full isn't because I'm a super busy person in high demand. It's because I don't like to delete my messages until I've had a chance to archive them.
