We're An Unhip Couple, Now Give Us Your Money

I've been pretty upset about things lately, especially with the amount of husband and wife podcasts that are popping up that are trying to be something they aren't. And if these are their real personalities, then I feel bad. Something about these oh-so-hip, cutting edge couples seems very disingenous to me. I guess what I'm trying to say is that when everyone is jaded and cynical, then no one is.

Ugh. I don't think I made the point I wanted to during tonights show and as I'm writing this, I still don't feel like I'm making the point I want to make. Hopefully, people will undestand what I'm trying to say. And at the very least dig it. If not, then I expect lots of people to point and laugh. Just as if I were riding a recumbant bike.

Running Time 44:34

Every day is an education.

Apparently, the kebabs we talked about on a previous show are not shiskebabs as folks in the States are familar with, but something that looks like a Gyro sandwich:

It would be very difficult to anyone to get impaled on that, I would think.
Thanks to Neener, our psuedo-British correspondent for the information!

Listen Here. It's a little bit hard to hear the questions, but with a good set of earbuds, you'll should be able to make everything out.

Rocketboom's Homage to Jawbone?

Today's installment of Rocketboom features a laugh track...Hmmm...seems like someone has been listening to Jawbone shows for their material, doesn't it?

Kidding. Actually, Amanda admitted that they hadn't heard our show and that if they had, Andrew would have credited us.

Not a big deal. I just found it funny. I guess it's true...great minds do think alike.

The Whacky Brand Name Fiesta Show

It's official. I am a podcasting expert. At least to the folks at Ligget-Stashower.

George Nemeth of Brewed Fresh Daily, Matt Wardlaw from The Metal Show, David Lay of the Cleveland Podcasting Meetup Group and myself were invited to Ligget-Stashower Advertising in downtown Cleveland to speak to their PR department about podcasting. Incidentally, the building that Liggett Stashower Advertising is located in was prominently featured at the begining of The Drew Carey Show. It was the building that Drew worked at. Neat little bit of Cleveland trivia, eh?

BTW, there is a little contest involved with this podcast. Since we spent part of our meeting talking about embedded ads in podcasts and viral marketing, there are TONS of brand name references in this cast. If you can figure out how many brand names we mention in this podcast, you can win a pretty nifty prize. One winner will be chosen from all the correct entries we recieve. Local Cleveland winners will recieve two tickets to the Improv Comedy Club. If you win and you're not from Cleveland, you'll win a pretty cool Official Jawbone Radio T-shirt. So listen in from brand names and start tabulating.

Send your guesses to And remember to send along your mailing address with the entry. Good luck!

Running Time: 43:00 on the dot.
The walk to Liggett, I am accosted by a world-famous Cleveland panhandler.

Our Future Fat Guy Habitat

For those of you who have been listening to our show for a while, you know that we have been doing a basement remodeling project. You may also know that we plan on growing a fat guy in our basement over the course of the next few months with the hope of having to cut him out around Thanksgiving time.

Well, our project has neared completion and we would like to share some before and after photos as well as some images of what Neil, our future fat guy, may look like as he grows to morbid obesity from his new habitat.

You can check out the before and after photos here. Enjoy!
