Amazingly I have appeared on two podcasts in the last week. Hot on the heels of meeting up with the voices and commenters at Sidepodcast.com last week when an impromptu chat was recorded with a whole group of us, I also joined in with the Sidepodpanel on Sunday night! It was a lot of fun and I hope to go on again at some point in time, if they’ll have me. The edited podcasts are now live on the site so go over and check them out!
This is an irregular feature on the website and the Science Museum Meetup provided an ideal chance to hold a version with everyone actually present in person. I had a few words to say but preferred to mill around listening to everyone else speak, as much as was possible with so many people in an open space!
Head here to listen to the podcast, it comes in at a tidy 16 minutes and you can listen on the page or download the MP3.
Although I sent a voicemail just before Melbourne, this was my first ‘proper’ podcast appearance with me talking live and direct into the mike. A very strange experience!
Sidepodpanel (Series 2 Panel 10):
This is a regular series in which two teams of three guests answer questions set by a guest host, with points awarded by Christine who is the host of the other podcasts produced by SPC (as I’m sure you don’t need telling, being regular listeners yourselves).
I was placed with Team Fish & Chips alongside Alex and Scott. We were up against Team Alex’s Trousers comprising Gavin, Steven and Andy. The guest host was Chris Evans (not the TV/radio one). Don’t ask about the team names. 🙂
Before listening to this one you should be familiar with this video from the former ITV commentator James Allen.
It was a hell of a lot of fun to take part so thanks to everyone concerned! It was very, very nerve-racking being put on the spot and coming up with something but everyone was nice about it and encouraging – after all, they were all newbies once too – and actually it was a good thing because it meant the questions were pitched at the right level, and made us all think. Nice job Chris!
Head to this page to hear the podcast! This one comes in at less than 40 minutes. Download it and listen after this weekend’s racing action if you prefer.
Don’t forget to catch up with all the Bahrain action with their other podcasts across the weekend including the brilliant aSide with Joe featuring Joe Saward of GrandPrix.com, calling direct from Bahrain.
