No Market Radio (syndication01)
Summary: Oh, death, where is thy sting?! When your wife starts writing love letters to Dick Cheney, what would you do? Put it on a podcast! Also, we share our thoughts on a variety of topics from week to week. Anything goes.
We're back with a new pod! Jen has more free time now because she doesn't have as much writing work. We actually watched a TV show. Related: It's hard to find legal free TV on the web. We live in a construction zone. It's hard to breathe. Jen vehicular manslaughtered me. Jen's been looking for work on Craigslist and she's found a lot of spam ads as well as cleverly-worded responses to those spam ads. We recapped what we did for my birthday and our wedding anniversary. Also, the Renn Faire and Mid State Fair (Van Halen concert). We're trying to get to 100 subscribers on our YouTube channel so we can unlock live video streaming. Please click the link and subscribe. We finished things off with another round of Table Topics.

It's time for a new podcast episode. And Jen is back! It was really hot here last weekend. We need to go back in time to help keep all of these planes from falling out of the sky. There was a power outage and that was kinda weird. Our neighbors are apparently fixing a roof. A roof infested with termites. I hurt my back. To remedy that, I took some hippie drugs. The hippie drugs made me have really weird dreams. Jen has been called for jury duty this week. She is currently on telephone standby. We chose another exciting question from our Table Topics cards. We finally got our Keurig coffee maker. Send us your favorite K-Cups! Leave a comment below or send us an e-mail: info(at)nomarket(dot)org Leave us a voice mail by dialing 805-725-5085.

It's another fun-filled solo show. We won't blame you if you stop listening now. I thought it wasn't too noisy outside to record. And then it was. So I closed a window. Our neighbors (surprisingly) have raised the height of the fence that divides our properties. We're not entirely sure why they chose to do that but we're not complaining. I played a song by Peter Block. You can find this song in our ongoing Spotify playlist. I've canceled my Spotify, Netflix and World of Warcraft accounts. Related to that, we're trying to improve our finances and I've got plans. Follow No Market on Twitter! Leave us a comment below or send an e-mail to info(at)nomarket(dot)org.

Another solo show. Recorded in the morning. I'm sorry. Jen's asleep. I decided to do a short show because she's very busy with a writing project. It's overcast later in the day right now thanks to the June Gloom. The video we made on Jen's birthday is edited and ready for viewing. A nerdy monologue on the nature of using YouTube ensued. We've been getting e-mails, probably from spammers, who want to contribute to our website. Our web host sucks and we'd like to move to a new one. We discovered yesterday that our fish tank was leaking water. We're pretty sure it's the filter. I played a song by Deborah Holland. You can find this song on our ongoing Spotify playlist. In an attempt to improve our finances, I canceled my Spotify Premium account. I'm contemplating canceling my World of Warcraft account, too. Thank you for listening!

You may remember us from the TV show we did in the Denver area: We went to Strawberry Festival. Sign up for our newsletter, get bonus content. We saw Star Trek: Into Darkness. The crowd funding campaign for Jen's birthday was a success. We talked about the birthday celebration and our experience dining and hanging out at Madonna Inn. Jen wrote a thing called 40 Pieces of Wisdom upon turning 40 years old. We played a song by Laurie Morvan Band. We talked about Myspace. And Justin Timberlake. And other social network sites. We had another exciting round of Table Topics. e-Mail us at info(at)nomarket(dot)org or leave a comment below. Leave a voice mail by calling 805-725-5085. Subscribe to this podcast via RSS or iTunes.

We're makin' pods in pod land! I talked about my new life philosophy of Maximum Efficiency. AKA, Max eF. I've been drinking Guantanamo Bay-grade coffee. We met the Lanntonio of Fresh and Easy. We participated in the Shattered Soulstone Diablo III one-year anniversary gaming night. Fun was had. Colin wrote an excellent piece about movie theater etiquette for our site. I'm gonna be starting a music podcast soon (™). Jen's gonna be bringing back Inside My Head soon (™). I asked Jen if she could guess the singer of this song: (She guessed correctly!) We went over this list of hit songs that were originally meant for other artists. Some nerds made a thing that changes the words "the cloud" to "my butt." We had another exciting edition of Table Topics! There's still time to contribute to Jen's birthday fund. Leave a comment below.

We're back in the studio! A moment of silence for the end of Starbucks Frappuccino Happy Hour. Blackberry Storm. Anybody remember that? Our website has lots of stuff on it. Including the new Destroying Debt channel. Our coffee maker died. Thankfully, I'm trading an old stereo to a friend for a coffee maker he doesn't need anymore. Jen got a new writing gig. She's done with it for now but there may be more writing work for her in the future. (Thanks to Matt for helping Jen to land the job.) We watched all of the Avengers movies as a lead up to the newly released Iron Man 3. I plugged my guitar into the mixer. And then, there was a song. Jen said it was an unplanned tribute to recently-departed Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman. Then we had another (timely) edition of Table Topics. You can still help to make Jen's birthday awesome!

Today's podcast was recorded while I was on a walk home from downtown San Luis Obispo. I recorded this podcast using the voice recorder app on my iPhone. I was also running the Runkeeper app, and I was concerned that if Runkeeper threw up an alert, it might kill the recorder app. I'm no longer using the Couch To 5k app. I've just gone back to taking walks. This month is turning out to be super busy already. Jen's picked up some more writing work but it hasn't entirely made up for the reduction in work she experienced earlier this year. Jen now knows about the crowd funding campaign I've started to help pay for her birthday celebration. (As of the time of recording, we had received one donation from Tiggr. We have since received another one from Nathan.) This happened because we had a somewhat serious conversation earlier this week about the state (and future) of our finances. We've started a new channel here at No Market called Destroying Debt and we'll be blogging there about our experiences in trying to improve our finances. (Here's the first post in the series, which I mentioned during the recording.) I talked a lot about our finances and gave some details about the debt we're trying to pay off. I then talked about how the death of Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman made me really depressed. And yeah, I finished the podcast off with "Seasons In The Abyss:" Leave a comment below or send an e-mail to info(at)nomarket(dot)org Leave us a voice mail by dialing 805-725-5085 on your telephone handset.

We're hand craftin' some WAV's onto our wav-canvas! I think we need an air conditioner in our studio room. In honor of Earth Day. We talked some more about the phenomena of crowd funding. The Heat Kills campaign I mentioned on the last show was funded! In the wake of the bombing at the Boston Marathon, a bunch of related crowd funding campaigns have popped up. (Including for a boat.) If I ever have the money to buy a boat, I won't settle for anything less than a mega yacht. And if I had that kinda money, I'd just secretly crowd fund things all day long. Somewhat randomly, I was made aware of a Facebook "event" for a local lost cockatiel. Jen and I spent about an hour on Friday morning searching for the missing bird. I recently clipped one of our cockatiel's wings for his own health and safety. I made a week's worth of breakfast burritos! I have trouble with tying shoelaces and untying knots. This is why I'd never make it on the TV show "Survivor." We played the song "Wreckage" by Silver Lake Chorus. Find this song in our ongoing Spotify playlist. We went thru another exciting round of Table Topics. Jen is now writing movie reviews! You can read the first couple here: Evil Dead (2013) and Evil Dead (original).

We are back, and recording on a Saturday night (the best time for "making pods"). Neither one of us had a whole lot of energy for this show, but we managed to find some interesting stuff to talk about anyway. * I actually went outside (and had sushi) (and saw a palm tree made of balloons). * We briefly discuss the wide variety of foods at restaurants in downtown SLO. * Despite this, Shawn only goes to a few places. This concerns him. Pluto's Louisa's Place Woodstock's Mo's Natural Cafe Que Pasa Muzio's (which is no longer there): * Shawn was a guest on Nathan's App-A-Day Podcast number 300. * A discussion about the different ways that people listen to podcasts led to: Shawn: I'm, like, the last person on Earth that is always syncing their iThing to their i.... mac, or whatever they got on their desktop. Shawn:Am I just ... efficient-a-sizing my self, or am I crawling into a box and going: "NOOOOOOO!" I don't think I'm doing that. Shawn: Am I, like, turning into some sort of... stale.. middle-aged-person now? * Big Announcement: The Inside My Head podcast is coming back soon-ish! * Anybody know where I can get a job as a fact-checker? Let me know! (I'm good at it!) * We read, and respond to, listener email and Tweets. Thank you to: Jon from Seattle, Nathan, David, Nevik, Erk, and Colin (who likely didn't know we "borrowed" a clip from Ourobouros). * SongPop @Songpop1 Shawn played a little bit of "Asleep" by The Smiths: * Find out when your Twitter Birthday is (if you care about stuff like that). * CrowdTilt sounds like a really good thing. We talk about one that was trying to raise money to help prevent heat related diseases and death. (Since this episode was recorded, this one managed to get the amount of money that was requested). * We also mention another one that was to help a family have more children, and a third one that was to help a man who was living in his car with two dogs after a job fell through. * We talked a little about Kiva, which is another crowd-funded type thing. * We played a song by Efterklang called "Apples:" Listen to this song as part of our
We recorded a midnight podcast! We got a new Brita water-filtering pitcher. Apparently, its name is Bella. Our previous episode was saved thanks to the Mixlr recording of our live show. Jen talked about developments with her health insurance. That reminded me of these classic Eagle Insurance TV ads: We played the song "So Low" by The Controversy. Jen picked a question from our collection of Table Topics cards. I gave a Couch to 5k update. I'm concerned about whether or not I'll be able to do my walk/jog today because the SLO Marathon is happening.

We recorded this one live via Mixlr! And we even had a few people show up to listen in. We were both experiencing low energy levels. Most likely due to whatever the Earth is putting into the air right now. I tried to offset this by drinking a mediocre bottled coffee beverage. Nathan, Nevik and Ben joined us during the live show. We found out that if you follow our account on Mixlr, you'll get an e-mail alert when we go live. We picked up a pizza earlier in the day from our new favorite hippy grocery store. We were surprised to find an actual pizza pan in the bottom of the box. Facebook is an endless Pit of Sorrow. Also, a comment (thru Facebook!) from Ken Turetzky. I gave an update on my latest experience with Couch to 5K. We got a card in the mail warning us of foreign lottery scams! Jen needs a new external hard drive. We played the song "Say Sayonara" by JOANovARC We introduced a new segment called Table Topics, based on this.

We recorded this exciting podcast last night. Live via Mixlr! Jen was sick. And I kinda was, too. I told her it's OK, tho because it's not her fault she was made wrong. We went thru a couple rounds of listener feedback during this episode. I unveiled our two-prong Mission Statement: 1.) Heal the world. 2.) Get rich or die tryin'. Next year will be my 20-year high school reunion. I decided I'm only going if I can legitimately show up in a chopper. We played a voice mail from Robert. I also want to wear cape-appropriate attire to the high school reunion. We replied to Robert's voice mail and talked about how we used to record multiple Hyper Nonsense episodes in one night. We got a door hanger from Charter telling us that we were receiving "illegal" TV service we didn't even know about. We went over feedback we received from Nathan, Matt, David and Erk. Follow me on Spotify! I did some live video testing using CamTwist and Livestream. We discussed the correct ways to participate in Earth Hour. I introduce my new character, Pod Passion Android Guy. I talked about my new iMac stand. I gave an update on my experience using the Couch to 5k app. We played the song "Kiss Me" by Laney Ann Thompson. Find this song as part of our ongoing Spotify playlist. Our last bit of "feedback" was a kind donation we received from David via our Tip Jar. Thanks, David!

We recorded this episode during Earth Hour (not Earth Day). Technically, it wasn't during the Earth Hour for the time zone we currently live in. However, it matched up to the time zone we used to live in, so we figure that's good enough. This meant we could not do a live show for this episode, or use our computers, microphones, the mixer, or the lights. Despite these limitations, we managed to record a podcast anyway, by using Shawn's iPhone. Yes, we are that dedicated to our lovely listeners! We discussed the following topics: * What's Earth Hour? (Hint: It's not Earth Day.) * The auditory differences between our studio and our bedroom. * Shawn's shares a "life changing experience" that he had the day before we recorded this episode. (Hint: It involves soda.) * Enzo's * We still aren't ready to talk about a couple of projects we have coming up. * What does a freelance writer do when she lacks paid writing work? * Books! We got lots of them. We are getting rid of lots of them. We talk about why. This time, I'm the one with some interesting quotes: * "That's the guy that cut off his ear. There's his painting!" * "There's no stability in teaching!" * "What are all these books doing in the Apple store?" * "It's mine forever... until I sell it." * This, naturally, leads to a discussion about "The Evil Bookstore", changes in the book industry, and the pros and cons of eBooks vs. paper books. * Redigi * We also started talking about digital books vs. digital music, and the issue of storage. Music by: * Moreish, with a song called "Reason to Die" Leave a comment below. Or send an e-mail to info(at)nomarket(dot)org Follow No Market on Twitter.

In the last episode, we promised that we would record another episode on Wednesday of this week - and we did! Imagine that! We did this one live on Mixlr again. It doesn't seem to have any ads (unlike other companies that let people stream podcasts live) and we like that! * Shawn is "not really well today". Mercury is not in retrograde, so that's not the reason why. He's a little "off" in this episode, so it's probably good that I've started doing the show notes. Shawn shares more about how his brain has gotz the dumbz today. * Due to this, he came up with some interesting sentences like these: - "I can't blame my problems on Mercury for a whole three months." - "I'M MAKIN' PODDDDS!" - "Burn it in yer burn barrel" - "You can't not tell me that all of nature's creatures don't love having more chlorofluorocarbons." - "I just don't think.. with as off as I feel right now, I just don't think I should be swingin' a huge knife blade around". And my favorite one: - "For so many long, of the times... the thing is is that.. weeee... were having troubles... I mean, in the sense that, like...Jen used to work more." * We give listeners a brief "behind the scenes" of Hyper Nonsense was like. * How do we get Zyrtec to be a sponsor of No Market Radio? * We share a comment that David VanSunder was kind enough to leave for us, and we respond to it, too. * Last episode, ROOStar was in the live chat room, and he sent us this article from Infinite Dial to read and discuss. We were out of time to do it for that episode, so we put it into this one. * This eventually leads to a discussion about people playing video games and streaming it online and other people going online to watch people play video games. * Shawn talks about his first dental appointment in 12 years! He shares why it took him so long to finally see a dentist, and what happened on his "dental adventure". * Jaws from the James Bond movie. * Somehow, we got into a conversation about what Shawn edits that I could, quite possibly, start editing for him. * This show includes another SongPop challenge - live! * Shortly before the SongPop challenge started, Ben sent Shawn a comment on Twitter about the Couch to 5K app that he mentioned in the previous episode. Obviously, this meant I immediately needed to get Ben into the chat room. SO. MUCH. FUN! * Shawn has been posting stuff on eBay. Anybody want it? * We played the song "Manner of Traveling" by Hot Fiction. Shawn picked this one out. (Listen to this via our ongoing Spotify playlist.) * Shawn shares a little bit about his OCD with y'all. * Enjoy the on air "planning the podcast meeting" as we try an figure out when to record another episode of No Market Radio.
