30 Episodes in 30 Days

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.

Electable – NaPodPoMo-015

It’s 2004 at the Democratic National Convention in Boston. Some delegates of Dennis Kucinich think it’s too early to throw their support to John Kerry. But there is a lot of pressure to do exactly that. http://media.blubrry.com/quoted/content.blubrry.com/quoted/Q_NPPM_015_2017_96_Convention.mp3

The Studio – NaPodPoMo-018

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. http://media.blubrry.com/quoted/content.blubrry.com/quoted/Q_NPPM_018_2017_96_Personals.mp3

The Party Planner – NaPodPoMo-020

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. http://media.blubrry.com/quoted/content.blubrry.com/quoted/Q_NPPM_020_2017_96_Phone.mp3

Windy Moon – NaPodPoMo-021

Craters of the Moon was really beautiful. And windy. It was really windy. I can’t think of a better reminder of the time the three of us climbed up these endless hills. http://media.blubrry.com/quoted/content.blubrry.com/quoted/Q_NPPM_021_2017_96_Moon.mp3

Aha Moments – NaPodPoMo-023

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. http://media.blubrry.com/quoted/content.blubrry.com/quoted/Q_NPPM_023_2017_64_Aha.mp3

The Machine – NaPodPoMo-024

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. http://media.blubrry.com/quoted/content.blubrry.com/quoted/Q_NPPM_024_2017_64_Machine.mp3

Bus Ride – NaPodPoMo-027

A Greyhound bus crashes into a semi truck just outside of Macon, Georgia. This is my mom’s story, which she retells when her grandson asks her about the shoe. http://media.blubrry.com/quoted/content.blubrry.com/quoted/Q_NPPM_027_2017_96_Bus.mp3

Your Messages – NaPodPoMo-029

I share a few messages from listeners. Plus, an invitation to produce a QuOTeD episode. Also, the vacation report. The Badlands get high marks. Wow! Beautiful! Go! http://media.blubrry.com/quoted/content.blubrry.com/quoted/Q_NPPM_029_2017_64_Mail.mp3

Moving According to Voicemail – NaPodPoMo-028

A continuation of episode #NaPodPoMo-25 where we listen to more phone messages. While my friend Dan makes arrangements to dramatically downsize, George W. Bush is elected president.
