Edinburgh Man #248

December 7th, 2016

I’ve finally managed to find the time to record a podcast! As I wait in the car outside Edinburgh Man Junior’s school while he takes part in his primary school nativity play. I know what you’re thinking – surely I should be in there watching him. Well, maybe. Although I do have tickets for tomorrow’s performance. Hopefully by then they’ll have perfected their lines.

Anyway, tonight’s podcast is recorded on my laptop, so the quality is somewhat poor. It’s not helped by the fact I don’t actually know where the in-built microphone is. So basically I’m sitting in my car, in the dark, shouting in the general direction of my laptop screen.

November 19th, 2016

Good morning, and welcome to the weekend! Time for a coffee? I’ve been finding it increasingly difficult to record a podcast every week. There’s something about juggling two small people that seems to take up a bunch of time. Anyway, this morning in an act of quality parenting I plopped Edinburgh Man Junior down in front of Transformers, and Thing 2 is being subdued with a white noise generator app. Giving me just enough time to record show 247. How did parents cope before Netflix and smartphones?

A late podcast, due to 1) illness and 2) an ill-advised halloween costume building exercise that consumed way too much of my spare time. But there’s some great music to return with, include a track from the wonderful Belly of Paris and a live version of Jeff Lewis’s Leonard Cohen inspired Chelsea Hotel song.

1. Belly of Paris – “Boys” (Played courtesy of Belly of Paris)
2. Tenineight – “All My Heroes Are Ugly” (Played courtesy of Flowerpot Records, Released under a Creative Commons licence)

Edinburgh Man #245

October 19th, 2016

At Edinburgh Man Towers we are currently trying to get used to something that we’ve never had to experience before – school holidays. Just when we were starting to get used to this crazy new routine, a spanner is thrown in the form of the October break. One week (and a day) of child juggling excitement. To get away from all this, Thing 2 and I made our escape yesterday morning, armed with a baby carrier, suitably hipster reading material and a fully completed reward card for Brew Lab.

But the good news is that for the first time in 2 months I’ve had a good night’s sleep. I actually feel relaxed. Will this make for a less shambolic episode of the podcast? Hmmmm… probably not.
