New Podcast Coming

I’m about to start a new mini-podcast called “DrunkAndRetired.com Stories.” They’ll just be little recordings here and there. My desire is for them to be easy to for me to spit out, ad hoc, and short-ish, kind of like my old Gravy series, but not just focused on tech.

My plan is that they’ll be infrequent in that they’ll be driven more by the availablity of anything to talk about than a scheduled time. I’m just going to dump them in the DrunkAndRetired.com Podcast feed. If they get to be annoying, just complain, and I’ll seperate them out.

So, look forward to ’em!

Update: actually, I decided to put them in their own feed ’cause that’d be easier for some hand-waving issues. The page for the Stories podcast is here, and the feed is here.

[DrunkAndRetired.com Podcast] Episode 79 – Applying dynamic languages to HTTP Client in Java, Hitler’s Monads, PGP and Email, Charles’ Day, Getting to Continuous Personal Improvement and Backlogs

For this episode, instead of a description, I opted for a long title.

That said, here is the description for this week’s show, from #drunkandretired:

cote: I’m almost done editing this week’s episode.
cote: Now. I know what you’re thinking, Mr. Chess Clock.
cote: “Coté, what are you going to do now that you finished off that last bit of that bottle of Wild Turkey?”
cote: Never fear, my friend, I am well stocked.
cote: I was a Boy Scout after all.
cote: And their motto was “WE-BLOW!”
cote: Oh, wait, it was actually: “Be pre-paired.”
cote: Which helped influence my thinking about XP.

[DrunkAndRetired.com Podcast] Episode 77 – The Best Episode Ever!

Kim in DrunkAndRetired.com Podcast, Episode 77

Something weird happened to the recording of this episode. It cut out every now-and-then. I managed to salvage about 11 minutes of us talking about ancient civilizations, Borat, Dick Chaney’s, spelling before right-click, cursive, jinx, random kung-fu, and other exciting stuff.

Coté! Zombies!

Zombie from Undead

In case you didn’t know, zombies are quite popular now-a-days. Why? I’m not really sure beyond the fact that they’re awesome.

This morning, while in the coffee-in-room laden Biltmore Hotel in Santa Clara, I was thinking, “I don’t have enough podcasts and podcasts on the way. I like zombies. I mean, I really like zombies. I should start up a zombie podcast.”

Now, there is The Crazy Zombie Podcast, but I’m not sure if it’s based on solely on zombies.

Perhaps I’d call my podcast “The Zombie Newz” and just go over all the latest zombie news, trends, and discussion. We could review at least one movie, TV show, etc. an episode as well.

(I’m only 25% kidding.)

I despise solo-podcasts, esp. making them, so I’d be looking for 1-3 partners. Anyone interested?
