This week, we’re launching a new podcast that will be sharing the Everyone’s Got a Thing feed, Two Guys, a Girl, and a Goblin. This new podcast will drop every two weeks, alternating with the release schedule of Everyone’s Got a Thing. For more information, visit the show page.
For episode 3, we sat down with Aaron Todd Allison, AKA Brother Todd, to talk about comic books. Todd loves comics, especially Marvel Comics, and he gave us a rundown of his history with comics, as well as a history of Marvel itself, how it started and how it got to be the company it is today. I’ve been a casual comic book fan for a good portion of my life, and a fan of Marvel in particular, but I learned a lot from talking to Todd, and we had a lot of fun in the process.
Below are the episode notes for Episode 2 – Animation Overload, with links to the things we talked about. I realized about half way through that there’s a thing called Google, so I decided to just list the items and only link to the things that might be a bit unclear.
If you would like to buy some of the things we recommended during the show, please visit this episode’s Amazon Store Page for a curated selection.
For episode 2, we sat down with Samantha Kampersal, aka Sammy Kammy, aka Jim’s girlfriend, to talk about animation. Sam loves animation. If it’s a sequential series of drawn images, Sammy will probably watch it. We talk about anime, Adult Swim, The Simpsons, South Park, and a bunch more. Also, we have a theme song! The new EGAT thing is Soul Time by Achtung Spitfire Schnell Schnell, courtesy of Mevio, musicalley.com, and their podsafe music library.
Update: Not long after posting, I got notification from Apple that the feed had been approved. It will be a few days until it’s available everywhere. I still stand by what’s below.
When I got a wild hare up my ass and decided to do this podcast, I thought my biggest problem would be getting people to sit down to talk to me, and getting people to listen. While I’m still not sure about listeners, my problem is, instead, a matter of platforms. I submitted EGaT to iTunes last week, and it entered Apple’s “approval queue” where it waits to be allowed to be listed on the iTunes store. I realize that it was towards the end of the week, and stuff is probably not happening on Saturdays and Sundays, so it’s not completely surprising that it’s not been approved at this point.
This isn’t a complaint about time, but rather about the process itself; though Apple lists criteria for being included (and reasons why it might be rejected), the process couldn’t be more opaque.
Here’s the pilot episode of Everyone’s Got a Thing! Aaron and I sit down and talk about soccer, or as they call it pretty much everywhere outside of the US, football. We’re without a theme song, sponsor, or most of the other trappings of a podcast, but it’s definitely an audio recording encoded as an mp3 and saved to the Internet.
