Or will be shortly.
Well...the story goes a little something like this...
Acr0nym: You should totally do a podcast.
Acr0nym: Because it would be fun!
Jane: But I don't have anything to talk about on a podcast.
Acr0nym: Sure you do! You blog every day, yeah?
Jane: Yeah but...that's different.
Acr0nym: No, it's not. It'd be great! AND! I have all the equipment to record and edit a podcast.
So I think about it. And then Owen's birthday party happened and I realize I have interesting people in my life who are funny, irreverent, smart, informed...did I mention 100% irreverent about, well, everything?
So, I went back to Acr0nym and agreed to do a podcast.
Then he went on a shopping spree for equipment.
Jane: I thought you said you had everything we'd need for a podcast?
Acr0nym: Well, I did. But this stuff will make it better, nicer, more professional. [Acr0nym is a gear head but not about cars. No, no. Electronics gear head. He can't stop.]
Jane: Ah. OK. So...what should we talk about in the podcast?
Acr0nym: OH! Well now see, I don't care about any of that. It's prolly gonna suck no matter what you talk about.
Jane: But you were the one who said I should do a podcast!!!
Acr0nym: Oh yeah. I know. And you totally should! Because Dave Winer is your secret boyfriend. [?!] But I don't actually care what you talk about. I just want to play with the podcast technology and needed an excuse to upgrade my equipment.
So, I'm getting a podcast for my birthday. And, no matter what Acr0nym says, it's going to be AWESOME! Because I'm awesome and I have a face for radio and I have a voice for radio (which is a laugh riot if you know me and know what I do for a living) and I also have fabulous, incredible, irreverent friends...a lot of them...who have mercifully agreed to star in podcasts with me, your Infinitely Wise *cough* host.
