155: No curses, no whammies

After several technical hiccups, Jessamyn and I managed to record a podcast, and here it is! Lots of MeFi and Ask; lots of users' first posts, lots of animal posts, even several first animal posts. Runs about 90 minutes. [more inside]


154: I Learned It By Reading

We're back after a skipped month with an unsurprisingly longer-than-usual podcast episode, as jessamyn and I chatter about all the ususal site stuff (a month's worth is generally too much, two months definitely so) and also talk a little about MeFi history, recent site challenges, the 20th anniversary, and so on. Runs just about two hours total. [more inside]


153 - Josh Ruins Taiga

It's time for that monthly podcast: jessamyn and I caught up yesterday on the last month or so of all things MetaFilter, Ask MetaFilter, Projects, and so forth through the ol' enumeration of subsites. We also talk about trivia a little, and as a result I ruin taiga and possibly everything else. We also got to wondering whether Jeopardy would throw you off the show for refusing to answer questions in good faith, so, hey, Jeopardy folks: any good stories there? [more inside]


152: Get Jobbed At Steve MetaFilter Jobs

151: A Birdwatching Mecha

It's podcast time, and it's a (relatively) brief, (relatively) under-produced episode this time, with me and Jessamyn chatting about MeFi stuff for about 70 minutes because my voice was a little worn out. [more inside]


150: Taking a Dinger

Here it is. A podcast. It's a podcast and here it is. Yes. Yes? Yes. [more inside]


149: IROC-Z FOMO

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME PODCAAAAAAAST because this is an episode of one. It's me and Jessamyn and a whole passel of Januarial content from MeFi, along with some youthful car stories and our belated discovery of the Spanish word for sock. Runs about 90 minutes. [more inside]


148: 2019 New Year Call-In Episode

Sheesh, it's a week into the year and I still keep trying to write "2018" on my podcasts. But it's the new year, and Jessamyn and I catch up on what's happened on the big blue linky sea lately. Also occasionally featuring my neighbor's rented wood chipper! But also, more importantly, featuring messages from a whole bunch of MeFites who called in to share well wishes, new year greetings, old year ass-and-screendoorings, and some lovely and heartfelt thoughts about where they are, where we are, and hoping for us all to keep getting there together in the next year. [more inside]


147: We Forgot What We Were Gonna Call This One

November isn't even quite over yet but Jessamyn and I are entirely done with it, and document a bunch of the good bits and some of the not so great ones in this episode of the MeFi monthly podcast. Also there is a very clever bird and some nude cats. Also I make a pretty solid joke about clouds. It's actually not very solid. The joke I mean. Also obviously not the clouds, they're made of vapor, c'mon. Yes. Okay. Hello. [more inside]


146: GO VOTE

It's a remarkably short one this month—just over 50 minutes—because my throat was sore in what turned out to be the preface to a nasty cold that knocked me out all weekend, which is why we recorded this last week and it's only going up to day! But here it is! Also, vote! [more inside]
