0997 - Poorly Recorded Thoughts On Rural Computing | 2012-05-28

lostnbronx sends in a show which brings us down to earth when we talk about poor reception and slow Internet speeds.
Sorry for the sound quality. I recorded this in the car, Dave Yates style, with my Sanza Fuze v2, running Rockbox -- but my car is loud, and I had the Fuze hanging precariously from my jacket, where it was covered over half the time.

0778 - George Washington Carver | 2011-07-26

The summer shorts are intended to be shortform twitter like audio updates. In this summer short we are introduced to George Washington Carver, a personal hero of lostnbronx http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Washington_Carver

His very brief listing at the Podsafe Music Network can be found here, but it doesn't do this great man justice.

By all means, check out his Wikipedia page for a nice overview. His career was shorter than it should have been, but he had no equal.

May he rest in peace.

Dramatic Audio Media, And Its Context

Shownotes -- In No Particular Order (Yay!)

First off, there's the Wikipedia page for audiobooks (strangely, they don't seem to have one specifically for podiobooks -- at least, when I looked. Someone should fix that. But not me. I'm too busy. Or something.)
