Edinburgh Man #264

June 22nd, 2017

I realise it seems like, both by the photo accompanying this post and by the words that come out of my mouth during the first podcast in a few weeks, that the lack of recent episodes are the result of me spending all my time watching Twin Peaks and playing The Legend of Zelda. This may be partially true, but really the fact there are now two small children to wake up the adults at Edinburgh Man towers at 6am each morning has broken me both physically and mentally. Any tiny bit of spare time I’ve had in the last few months has been spent sitting on the sofa in the evening trying to build up enough energy to get up and go to bed.

But, the good (?) news is that I’ve bunked off work this afternoon and recorded a new show! Although annoyingly, five minutes in, two truck loads of builders turned up and started erecting scaffolding at the neighbour’s house. Apparently that basically involves hitting metal posts with hammers for pretty much the the exact duration of a podcast.

A podcast! Wait, is this thing still on? Why hasn’t there been a podcast for the last 2 weeks? Well, aside from playing with Lego I was ill, and then my computer was ill. But both are fit and well (more or less) this week, so let’s celebrate with an all new podcast. Although this time, I can’t hear my voice as a record it, so your host is going to be more awkward and uncomfortable than normal – if that is at all possible.

No podcast last week on account of a throat infection, but everything is all sorted this week and we’re back with an eclectic mix of great music. Today itself was a very tiring day with Edinburgh Man Junior, who was off because his school was being used as a polling station. Somehow we managed to do the Zoo, the Botanical Gardens, and even a trip to the ballot booth in the same day. Although I’m not totally sure he understood the intricacies of Single Transferable Vote, to be honest.
