Just a quick note to let folks know that the hosting company that handles quirkynomads.com hosting (where I keep the files for this show) has just emailed us saying that they’re migrating our site to a new server with new DNS info. Therefore files will not be accessible for this podcast for a few days until all the DNS stuff migrates.

After putting up the latest episode I started doing a bit of tidying and other housekeeping here. And so I wanted to pass on a few things.
First off: It has been almost a year but there is now an FAQ. Please have a look. The number one message I want to get out is this: We are welcoming of new contributors of all skill levels. All you need is an opinion and some recording equipment. If you haven’t participated yet, now’s your chance.
Second: I got a bit tired of the old theme. I realize this one isn’t quite it either but it’s a little brighter and what with winter coming along and along with it the winter blahs, I need some colour in my life.
Third: Commenting on episodes has been a little thin as of late and I’d love to know who is listening. My stats are showing a fair number of folks are downloading but as to who you are, if you’re enjoying it, or if there is anything you’d be interested in hearing talked about, I’ve not heard. I’m sure that our contributors would also love some feedback as well. Please be sure to comment! Let me know also if there is interest in a voicemail line for audio comments. If there is any interest, I’ll set up a number.
After a few interviews for this show I realized I actually really like doing interviews and so I have finally started another show. I have always wished someone would do a show introducing me to subway musicians and I realize now that if I want to find out about them I’m going to have to do it myself. And so, you can now listen to Underground Music over at Whole Wheat Radio. I’m shooting for one show a week and will post direct download links for each show after it is aired online. The first episode is now available for download. At this point there is not an RSS feed but depending on the preference, I can include it in this RSS feed or create a separate one for it…

Nearly everyone rebels to some extent during their teenage years. However, some folks continue to rebel well beyond their teenage years. In this episode I talk with Shamez Amlani of Streets are for People about what motivates him to keep rebelling as an adult.
