So my free webhost (DirectHosting) changed servers on the weekend and I neglected to make the changes to the domain name right way – which in turn meant that since Sunday some time this blog has been down. Woops! I hope you weren’t in dire need of an update (which there was none this week). I was also on a whirlwind trip moving some things across the province so was a bit busy.
Anyway, I thought I’d mention some podcasts I’ve been listening to lately. Something I haven’t done in a while.
- 372 Pages We’ll Never Get Back – This started off as a podcast reviewing Ready Player One. As a follow-up, the hosts (Mike J. Nelson and Conor Lastowka) decided to read Ernest Cline’s follow-up, Armada. Unfortunately they aired their final episode covering Armada this past Friday. I’m not sure what they’re going to do to follow up these books, if they are in fact doing anything. Disclaimer: I enjoyed both RP1 and Armada, but I also enjoyed how Nelson and Lastowka ripped apart the books.
- Radio Free Burrito – Wil Wheaton is back! In episode 51 he talks about a crippling depression he faced in 2017 and how he’s gotten better. I recommend listening to back episodes but hopefully the fact that he put out a new show is a sign indicating more new shows to come.
- Missing and Murdered: Finding Cleo – An investigative podcast from Connie Walker, and a follow-up to Missing and Murdered: Who Killed Alberta Williams? All episodes are available to download, and it’s turning out to be an important podcast series rather than “just another true crime podcast”.
- Incoming Game: A ReBoot ReWatch – With The Guardian Code (trailer) coming out in the US in March (and June, in Canada), ReBoot is suddenly relevant again. Listening to this show prompted me to start my own rewatch. The hosts are still getting their rhythm down but it’s entertaining.
