Edinburgh Man #253

February 18th, 2017

Some poor technical planning this week has prevented a live podcast. So instead I’m recording this early on a Saturday morning while I try to recover from a intensive week of school holiday fun with Edinburgh Man Junior. We managed to do soft play, the zoo and the Lego Batman Movie over three days and now I just want to sleep. But no, it’s the weekend, so there are still two more days of craziness to go.

Edinburgh Man #252

February 9th, 2017

I’m all full of adrenaline and talking 100 miles per hour on today’s show. I tried to post a link to the live streaming page on Facebook earlier this evening only to discover that the show’s website had been redirected to a “domain parking” page. For a few minutes, I was totally terrified that I’d let the domain expire and was about to get blackmailed thousands of pounds to get it back. In the end, it was some random DNS issue, but my heart was still pounding by the time it came to record the show.

A show which… I really enjoyed doing! What I mean is, I forgot how much fun the live shows are. Thanks to everyone who listened and tweeted at me. Please fee free to join in the fun(?) each Thursday at 9pm.

Edinburgh Man #251

February 2nd, 2017

It’s the first live podcast in ages! Actually, it’s the first podcast in ages… well, in a month. But it feels like a year or two since the last live one. I find myself wondering, did I used to need so many wires to do a live show?

Anyway, we got through it and it was quite enjoyable. People listened. One person tweeted at me. Once. So all in all, I consider it a success. Same time next week?

Best of 2016

December 31st, 2016

It’s Hogmanay, so that means I’ve just managed to scrape together the infamous Edinburgh Man best of the year show at the last possible minute. As with last year, the tracks have been chosen by myself. It’s not because I don’t trust the public to vote for the right answers (although if 2016 has taught us anything…) it’s because I left it too late to do anything else. Also, in what is quickly becoming an Edinburgh Man tradition, I have an incredibly painful sore throat. So not much chat, and lots of music. See you 2016 – don’t call us…
