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.
