Podcast Ping 49

This episode contains music and poetry about the coming of winter.

I'll release the rebuild of 23 in a couple days. I've also finished episode 50 and a rebuild of Bonus 9, but I want to release those in December. I'm also considering doing a Christmas episode for this year, even though I'll have the rebuild of last year's Bonus 9 and a posting of "A Pickle for Christmas" which I had trouble posting properly last year.

Podcast Ping 1-10 Special

This is a collection of the poems from episodes 1 to 10, excluding those re-used for episode 41. I've been meaning to do this for a while and remembered while working on episode 50.

This is just poetry alone. No music. The poems have been re-recorded. Most of the rest of the stuff from the earliest episodes were just me talking or some of my guitar playing. It was at episode 11 that I started on the current format with the podsafe music, so doing a full rebuild of the first ten episodes wasn't worthwhile. And I have been meaning to do an all-poetry episode for a long time.

I called it a "special" instead of a "bonus" episode because bonus implies additional material. And it's not a proper "rebuild" because I'm only using select parts of some of the podcasts.

This is just part of the wrap-up process for the season. I've decided that episode 50 will be the season finale and after 50 I won't be touching any of the old material except for publication. So no more rebuilds or best-ofs, just all new material. Of course that may wait a while until I've finished THE UNSTOPPABLE RIDE. (The first chapter of which will be about the only thing carried over into season 2.)

Podcast Ping 32 Rebuild

Here's a rebuild of episode 32.

It's getting a little hard to keep track of which rebuilds I've released, but I've only got a couple left. Just the rebuild of 23, which I'll get out this week and the rebuild of Bonus 9, which I'll release in December. And of course I've got the new episode 49 coming out soon, likely this week as well. I don't plan on doing any more rebuilds after Bonus 9; they were mostly done because I wanted to torrent them and felt it was worth the work since it would improve the quality.
