Hyper Nonsense is back! And in an attempt to make things even more complicated, Shawn attempted to stream the show live over Facebook Live Audio. (And yes, it is another sad, depressing, solo show. Sorry?) Shawn is going to the upcoming Podcast Movement conference in Anaheim! He is excited about it, but also dealing with the usual levels of anxiety and dread that go along with leaving the house. In a previous episode, Shawn talked about how he and Jen are considering donating their old car to charity. Shawn gives an update on that situation, and shares his feelings about being car-free (definitely not care-free). Shawn talks about his quest to be known by name at ever pizza parlor in town. And more!
We’re back! Well, one of us is. Yes, it’s a solo show. Yes, I’m sorry. On this episode, I talked about all the reasons why Jen’s not on the show. I gave an update on my ongoing problems with sciatica and why I’m now taking Norco. I gave our first ever Pokemon Go update (complete with music). I talked about our new audio mixer and the testing I’ve done with Facebook Live. And more!
We’re 5K-ing it! In this episode, we talked about my new computer, then we got an update on Jen’s health situation. We’re running an exciting campaign to get all of our listeners to #UnsubIn16! We decided to talk about the presidential election and all of the insanity surrounding it. We read some listener feedback and launched a new segment called Twitter Callouts! Then, we finished the show with an article about which American state has the most virgins.
We’re back with an exciting new podcast! In this episode, we talk about the high-tech headphone cable clip Jen made with a pipe cleaner. Then, Jen tells the story of how she pitched an article to popular website xoJane (which was accepted). We’ve got a shiny new Internet connection but we aren’t entirely sure just how fast it is. But the big news in this episode is we finally talk about the legal matter we’ve been mentioning for months. Yes, we’re filing for bankruptcy and we give the long and sorted history of our financial woes since moving to California. In an attempt to finish things off with some humor, we talk about how Cards Against Humanity sold actual bullshit on Black Friday.
It’s time for Hyper Nonsense! The best podcast you’ll hear right now… unless you listen to something (anything) else. We started out the show with ambient furniture noises, which lead into a story of the last couple of chairs I bought from Staples. Jen explains how it feels to never leave the house. We talk about the new social net that’s all the rage with the kids. I relate a story about how my sister’s car was broken into and what happened to her stolen iPod. I’ve been cooking more at home and researching recipes. I discovered that food bloggers can be kinda self-important.We read some listener feedback and we take a look at what American products are called in other countries. And more!
We’re not live but we’re also not dead. We’re un-live and we’re preparing for an exciting trip to Las Vegas! But we decided to make a pod before we leave. Tech problems, we got ’em (again). Apple’s conspiracy against us continues! We have now soundproofed our closet so we can use it as a vocal booth. We recently celebrated my birthday, which included a nice dinner and airplanes. We responded to some listener comments. Jen wants to see shipping containers and pretty lights in Vegas. I want to go to the mob museum. Nobody wants to see Carrot Top or Criss Angel: Mindfreak.
Some somber news to report, including a diagnosis of pterodacylism (with random outbursts of pterodactyl speak). We recap our experience at the Classic Car Show in Pismo Beach, CA. That lead to a lengthy discussion about the humanities (?) and the declining nature of car culture in America. We speculate on why some people who ride buses are some combination of anxious/depressed/sad. We talk about how gullwing car doors are cool but deadly. We review a sorta nautical-themed eatery. We went over the feedback we’ve received since the last show. We read an article about “bedtime procrastination.” And more!
We’ve done it! Yes, it’s true. We’ve successfully doubled the number of episodes we’ve produced so far. In honor of this milestone, we’ve decided to end the show. Just kidding! How could we quit now? We’ve got listeners leaving us comments, tweets, even calling us at home in the middle of the night! We’ve got new audio gear and we’re happy to tell you about it, even if we do have “more money than sense” in buying all of this stuff. We also discovered that the Australian prime minister has apparently been listening to our pods for years. Star Wars references! We got those, too. And daring helicopter-based escapes from Canadian prisons.
Welcome to our very first podcast ever! That we’ve ever recorded…? Maybe not. In this episode, we recount our history in podcasting going back to January/2005. We talk about the state of our work situation and how we’re going thru the process of starting our own business. We encounter a small technical glitch with the recording (sorry!) and then we finish off with a fun news item about drunks burning down a pizza parlor.
