The second podcast of the week! I’m not totally convinced I’ve got this thirty minute podcast thing sorted out – it feels so weird. It’s also a bit strange because it’s the second podcast using my DIY standing podcasting station – which is basically a collection of boxes stacked randomly. At any point the show may abruptly end because I’ve knocked something over in some sort of podcast jenga.

Anyway, music-wise we kick off with a remix of Wozniak’s Five Star, a new track from Brooklyn’s Arm Candy, and a whole loads more besides.

Ahahahah. I’m already regretting this two podcasts a week lark and I haven’t even started the first one. Hopefully you didn’t listen live, and instead went to see Deerhoof in Glasgow. In a spectacular babysitting fail I’m unable to go and see one of my favourite ever bands. Organisational disaster.

Never mind, there’s a packed musically eclectic podcast for you today including multiple tracks from Olympia’s G.L.O.S.S from the release of the week!

1. G.L.O.S.S. – “G.L.O.S.S. (We’re From The Future)” (Played courtesy of G.L.O.S.S., Released under a Creative Commons licence)

3. Gleemer – “Party Girls” (Played courtesy of Gleemer)

Back when I started this podcast I made it 30 minutes long. Partially because I had no idea what I was doing, but mostly because I thought that 30 minutes was a good length of time for a new music podcast. Over the years it hass grown in size to 45-60 minutes in length for a variety of reasons. However, recently I’ve been listening to lots more podcast during my commute, and I still think there is a sweet spot round about half an hour. So, as an experiment, we’re reverting to 30 minute long podcasts for a few weeks. I don’t want you to feel like you’re being short changed though, so there’ll be two a week! Starting next week. 8pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

In other news I shaved my beard off. My chin is cold and my son laughs hysterically at me.

What a day. Today was the day I tried (and loved using) a standing desk. I know, I’m about two years too late to this fad, but now, as I sit (SIT!) at my normally podcasting console I wish I had a standing desk for that too. That said, I’m a bit shattered. I guess standing up for most of the day probably contributed to that somewhat. In fact, I’m really looking forward to lying down.

On the podcast I talk at moderate length about standing desks, porridge (yep) and poo filled soft play areas. If only I’d stuck by my promise last week not to talk much.
