Introducing CommentsCast – Episode 1.5

As a child, I had a tendency to take the lazy route when trying to justify my need for instant gratification.

“Mom, so-and-so has a (insert your favorite toy/gadget/etc. here), can I have one?” little Mikey would say.

Which would invariably be followed by my mothers’ canned response, “if so-and-so jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge would you do that too?”

Today Comments from Left Field has jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge, joining the rest of the lazy political blogging world by producing our own podcast, CommentsCast.

Today’s podast, recorded a week ago Sunday December 14, is not actually the our first attempt in this area. Kyle and I actually recorded a test podcast the week prior but, for now, that will remain a demo only. As a result, we are classifying our first episode with a 1.5 leaving room to possibly pubish version 1.0 at some point in the future.

So, without further adieu I give to you CommentsCast Episode 1.5. Enjoy!

UPDATE: CommentsCast is now available on iTunes so you can keep up to date with the latest from your favorite bloggers on your iPod or iPhone. Alternatively (or in addition) you can subscribe to the RSS feed for CommentsCast.

UPDATE II: During this podcast I mentioned Chuck Pennacchio’s current efforts on behalf of the citizens of Pennsylvania to deliver universal single payer healthcare and Kyle suggested I provide a link. Well here it is; Health Care for All Pennsylvania.

    Mike, did you get my email about the microphone?

  2. Yep, got it. With the holidays we will have to hold off on doing another podcast for a couple weeks but when we do you are in!

  3. For some reason, the download buttons just take me back to the front page, and any attempt to right click and save has me saving as an html document. And I can’t get the player to play on my work computer.


  4. Kathy says:

    Awesome, Mike! I can’t wait, although after listening to the podcast you and Kyle did together, I’m going to have a tough act to keep up with. You guys rocked!

  5. Ok, the links should be fixed. It looks like the podcasting statistics options in PodPress were messing things up so I turned them off.

  6. By the way, thanks Kathy although I am not so sure I agree with your assessment 😉


  7. Tobias says:

    Reminds me of your WIDR days!

  8. That would be OUR WIDR days Toby.

  9. Kathy says:

    What’s PodPress? Is that something I should have?

  10. No Kathy, it is just a plugin running on our server.

    Wow. Gotta say I’m thoroughly impressed you guys, top notch there for a first published episode. It looks like I need to get dragged off around the world more often; every time I have to drop thing and head out the door I come back to cooler and cooler site additions.

    Just one word of advice. Mike, buddy, quit squeaking your pledged table… please. 🙂

    Also, Kyle: Anyone ever told you you sound like one of the guys from the Gamers with Jobs podcast? Had me confused for a second, I thought I was listening to the wrong download, lol.

  12. Duly noted Dustin, now comes your part (you had to know that was coming).

    We need to create a link along the top menu bar that contains only the posts with the podcast [Home – About – Contact – CommentsCast]. Also, it would be nice to have a little mini-feed right below the Donate to CFLF area with the Podcast posts.
