Should I Enter The 21st Century?

My Sunday begins as usual I would like to post on something that is not the same dismal stuff we all hear daily….but first….

Have you noticed that the nose picking, ass scratching Right can only handle one issue at a time?  Must be a hard life when your mind is that slow.

The staff after a day of reading Right wing flap-trap……

I guess they will be NO help in today’s post…..

Shall we talk about something interesting?

Recently I wrote a post about reading where I explained why books and reading are important to me and in closing I stated that maybe I should do a podcast called “Breakfast And A Book”… small attempt at humor…..apparently very small for most never got past the title……

Well my daughter read it and came by the house and told me that I should start a podcast.  I have been told numerous times that I have a face for radio…..

Not being the sharpest pencil in the techno babble box and being that I am an old fart….I had to ask….what the Hell is a podcast?

In case there are other old farts with a limited knowledge maybe this will help….

Podcasting is a form of audio broadcasting on the Internet. The reason it became linked with the iPod in name was because people download the broadcasts (audio shows) to listen to on their iPods. However you don’t have to listen to podcasts only on iPods; you can use your computer with some music software such as Windows built-in Media Player or iTunes for mac (which has a podcast library), or your smartphone, or even in your car. It really doesn’t matter, as long as you have some way to play music on your computer you will be able to listen to podcasts.

Or maybe this one will help……

But in short, a podcast is an audio and/or video recording made available on the internet, for which some mechanism of subscribing exists so that new ‘episodes’ can be automatically downloaded or the user automatically notified.

Their usage is limitless: News discussions, interviews, political debates, tutorials, etc. If there is a potential for a series of audio/video recordings on a specific topic or type of topics, podcasts are an option to be considered.


Now that we got the niceties out of the way……I would like to ask my followers and readers to weigh in on this situation…..would you guys be interested in a podcast from IST?

I was thinking a half hour show with discussions on the day’s stories…of course the stories I think should be talked about…….I would like for my readers to offer suggestions if they would….

If I do start a podcast it will be after the first of the year, 2017….time enough for me to get my stuff together to see if I can make it work…..

Please….let me have your feedback…it will be appreciated….

  1. Ah yes, “…The nose-picking, ass-scratching Right… ! I love it! I am a master of using these kinds of insults myself even though I have been told not to do it in the past…. I still love it because some of the insults are so appropriately directed. I am one of those “Nose-picking, ass scratchers” and I admit to doing both. Nose picking is dangerous though because you can cause an infection in the nost that can go to the brain and ultimately cost one’s life. Ass scratching is an entirely different matter but it does require frequent hand washing.

      1. It would be on IST and I think all you would have to do is click on the icon…..but like I said more research is needed….and I face a face for radio…LOL

      2. Thanx for the support…..I’m a techno idiot so I will have to take it to my research assistants and they are resting….as you can see in the photos…LOL

  2. Sounds like a plan. I don’t know much (nothing is more honest) about pod-casting, but I’ve got the people at Vimeo all hot-to-trot to get me to post on their site. Apparently it’s as easy as pie to upload videos on Vimeo. You may want to check that option, if it has anything in common with Podcast. Anyway, could be fun. I’m always being prodded to put pictures in with my postings. I don’t know. A picture may be worth a thousand words but the wrong picture may subtract a thousand words in distracting properties. Should we always assume that someone reading a “serious” piece needs to be entertained or s/he won’t finish it? That to me says much about the writer’s inability to present a theme in a coherent and instructive way. My other problem is hearing: without subtitles I can’t follow sound bites anyway. It’s words for me.

    1. I am not good in front of a camera so…this would be like a radio show…I guess…like I said would take a bit of research on my part….thanx for the comment….chuq

  3. At our age, bro, it’s important to prove to the whippersnappers we can still out-geek them… Plus, it’s good for us to learn new stuff, anyway. I know enough to say it won’t be that hard to pick up on; it’s fairly straightforward, and there are a number of ways to do it… Video blogging isn’t much harder to do, either, if you have a laptop less than six or eight years old; they’re all equipped to make it an easy process for inexperienced users…

    If you haven’t guessed, my take is: go for it…. It will be fun to learn, at the very least….


  4. Totally do a Vlog entry. You don’t technically need to call it a podcast. Tons of sites out there that literally walk you through the process step-by-step. You also have a geek right here to help if needed 🙂
