Well, it’s been a long time coming, and now, at long long last, after lots and lots of behind the scenes work, my podcast, Samuel’s Persiflage, is online.
This, being the first episode, I run through what Samuel’s Persiflage is all about, and why I chose the name, then there is a brief discussion of the John Kerr situation.
Next up we have an interview with Dave Smith from the Plain English Campaign where we discuss all manner of things to do with Plain English and the campaign, including a look at some of the gobledegook they found in their latest Plain English Awards. A minor technical issue created some telephone line echo during this interview.
There are some interesting little news stories and even an email from a listener.
There is also have an interview with Gary Floyd, a teacher/librarian who used to work in radio, he has an interesting tale or two to tell.
There is a bit more news, and then it is time to wrap up the show.
The file itself is available here, and is 49:01 in length (22.4MB) at 64kbps mono.
For those of you who are using podcast software to receive your podcasts, the feed can be found here. I actually decided to hand code the feed as I didn’t like the way WordPress produced it, and also felt that I had more control over it by hand coding it.
I am currently waiting for the podcast to be added to Itunes, I have submitted it, and just have to wait for it to go on the list. I will also be submitting it to other podcast directories shortly.
