DrunkAndRetired.com Podcast Interview in OnJava

As I mentioned last week, Chris Adamson of O’Reilly’s OnJava interviewed Charles and I about the podcast. We’re in the second part of the “The Java Podcasters” series, which is now available.

We answer some questions about how the podcast started, what we think makes a good podcast, and some other inside baseball.

Like I said last week, Chris seemed like a cool dude: check out his comments on Resident Evil.

The series is also going to be used to seed content into one of O’Reilly’s podcasts, Distributing the Future, so we’ll post a link to that when it comes up.

[DrunkAndRetired.com Podcast] Episode 37 – Web as Platform, GUI vs. Web-app

In this episode, I ask Charles two questions:

  1. What do you think of “the web as a platform” concept?
  2. Is all that hassle with web-apps really worth it? Wouldn’t you rather be GUI programming?

The is the tail-end of last week’s recording, so you might consider this part two of that episode.

As always, leave a comment on the blog entry, email comments (text or MP3s) to comments@drunkandretired.com, or call out Skype number and leave voice-mail: drunkandretired or +1-512-879-6339.

The Java Podcasters, Part 1

java-podcasters

Chris Adamson contacted Charles and I a short while ago with some interview questions about Ye Olde DrunkAndRetired.com Podcast. We, of course, gleefully accepted, and had a good time talking with him. He seems like the type that doesn’t get all uptight about people being fast and loose, which, of course, is a pre-req for our podcast ;>

This week is
part 1 of the interview series. There’re several podcasters interviewed, and as they say, Chris looks to have saved the best for last: we’ll be in part two next week.

Until then, check out the first part, and keep hittin’ reload on that site until you see part two where Charles and I will answer all the questions you’ve ever had about the podcast.

(Well, probably not. If we don’t, send those to use, and we’ll answer them.)

Best 30 Seconds of DrunkAndRetired.com Podcast?

Dear listeners,

Another podcast wants to excerpt 30 seconds of our podcast in a larger show about podcasts. We will be searching for that 30 seconds across all 35 episodes, but I thought I could use the wisdom of crowds to make the work more efficient.

If you have a favorite 30 seconds — or even just an episode — please leave a comment below to help us out. Perhaps we’ll even take all the suggestions and put together a best of show, prefixing each with, “Mr. Jomdom liked this one best…” and the like.

Oh, and we need to get it to the dude by tomorrow, Thursday ;>

[DrunkAndRetired.com Podcast] Episode 36 – Fans and Focus!

In this episode, we talk about some recent positive comments — and cash-money from Jomdom! — and the tediousness of dealing with focus in web browsers. We also catch up on Charle’s indie-programmer life-style.

And, don’t forget to add yourself to our frappr map: you can check out where other listeners are!

[DrunkAndRetired.com Podcast] Episode 35 – Zombies, More Goddamn Ruby on Rails

In this episode, Coté lays out his master’s thesis* on the current story trend in the Zombie genre: zombie evolution.

As if that weren’t enough, we try to finally close out the Ruby on Rails conversation — spanning 4-5 episodes — by responding to this comment.

* It’s not really Coté’s master thesis. C’mon. That’s
about as believable as Coté and Charles being retired!
Yeah. …it’s his doctoral one.

Podcasts

For quite some time now, I’ve enjoyed listening to and creating podcasts. Podcasts, of course, are self-produced shows in MP3 format that you can listen to on your computer, iPod, burn to CD, or anywhere that can transmit the audio to your ears. There’s plenty more explanations of the word “podcast”out there if you’re interested. The point of this page is to simply list all the podcasts that I’m involved in. Here’s the list:

DrunkAndRetired.com Podcast


The first podcast with my friend Charles Lowell and the occasional guests. We mostly talk about programming and other dorky and tech things. But, mixed in a fine dose of little boy and geek humor.

An audio only version of the feed is available.

RedMonk Radio


The (usually) weekly podcast about the software industry from RedMonk‘s view. I do this podcast with the two partners in my industry analyst firm, Steve O’Grady and James Governor.

I do several podcasts at RedMonk, including RIA Weekly and the IT Management Podcast. All are included in the RedMonk Radio feed. Also, check out the videos on RedMonkTV.

Austin’s Very Own


My wife Kim and I do a more or less weekly podcast on, you know, nothing in particular. We simply talk about what’s been going on recently. Occasionally, we do video versions or may do specials about things around town, like Domy books.

DrunkAndRetired.com Stories (neé)Gravy!


Each of the episodes in “Stories” are just little things I record here and there, sometime with my wife, sometimes myself, or other people.

Back in 2005, I split off some extra material to a podcast I called “Gravy.” For whatever reason, I started another one recently called “Stories.” The two are now merged. If you’d like to get the first 8 Grady episodes, they’re available in this old feed.

Austin Nag Podcast


Tips and advice for out-of-its like myself. That is, how to be more like an adult and less like a dark-room dwelling computer dweeb.

podcasts4u


A podcast of other podcasts and audio that I liked. When I heard a podcast I think is pretty good, I tag it in del.icio.us with podcast4u. So, if yo subscribe to this feed, you’ll get an earful of audio that I recommend.

[DrunkAndRetired.com Podcast] Episode 32 – Where’s Charles, Other Podcasts


Charles Bowling

This week, I explain why Charles hasn’t been around for the past 3 weeks. I talk briefly about Austin Nag, our new group-blog with “daily coping tips for people who lead busy (or lazy) lives.” Also, for your listening pleasure, I recommend some other podcasts I’ve been enjoying:

And, the lovely Kim Skotak fills us in on some late breaking Charles news.

More Gravy for Your Biscuits: Episode 007

I put up another gravy podcast episode this afternoon. It’s pretty crackly, which is terrible. I need to figure out the secret to recording with the iMic without it sounding like shit.

You can get the episode by downloading it directly from the online feed, or by subscribing to the feed in a podcatcher.
