In September 2012, I decided to attempt podcasting as an experiment, which lasted about a year. At that point, I was simply reading off the copy of posts I’d already written, mostly to spare the listener from hearing me trying to formulate thoughts on the fly. The equipment was pretty bad, and in late 2017 I re-recorded nearly all of them with a better microphone, so the only one with the original equipment that still exists is the introduction.

In mid 2016 I started again with a different approach, mostly unscripted, and though the mic was better this time, I didn’t get a truly good one until November 2016, so from June through September they’re a little rough – but still interesting.

If you have any issues with the sound files not playing, or if you have any suggestions or comments, feel free to contact me.

These are now listed in reverse chronological order, latest first, so traveling backward in time. I can offer no help for the confusion that might arise from this.

The older, original podcasts below were audio versions of posts having to do with critical thinking, philosophy, and religion. A little more structured, not really folksy or off-the-cuff.

The theme music, as of March 2021, is my own composition, nearly all electronic studio work with a simple MIDI keyboard and several software packages – more details, and the entire song, can be found with the 2,000th post. It’ll get changed again at some point, ideally for the better.

The theme music for all previous podcasts (all 57 of them, give or take – I don’t think they all had music) is the instrumental bridge from the song, ‘Walkabout,’ off of the album Walkabout by The Fixx. The entire song can be heard on the Welcome page. It’s true: despite my influence, the album existed before this blog…

‘Camphor’ from the same album is pretty good, too ;-)
