      Brazilians have an A1GP team and we don’t?! We better get something done, we can’t let brazilians be ahead of us. It does sound interesting though, I’ll have to check it out. It better be more fun than F1… Anyway, i love the french swear word segment! Keep it coming, this kind of stuff you don’t learn in french classes.

      Guys,

      Can you clarify something for me?

      Is Steve Hunter Scottish or not? 🙂

      Keep on casting,

      Alasdair.

      Bob, I was just checking out the “Mostly Tunes” site and noticed a “NO RIAA” sign. I think you need to put that sign on this site also. This is a talk and music show after all.

      P.S. All Podcasts that don’t play Riaa music need that sign. (FTR)

      I feel honoured as the recipient of the world’s funniest apology.

      Great show guys. In particular, three really great tunes from wildly different genres.

      I think the next question for consideration should be:

      Is Sheik Al McToom Scottish?

      Coronation Street… will it ever go away! I used to work with an older woman who talked about this show all day long. She loved it. Damn soap operas.

      No beer? I thought you guys would do anything for your #1 fan?! Guess the cd might help, not sure if Nico’s artwork will get me out of here!? LOL

      Zedcast was funny, Bruce did a great job on that past 2 shows of skydiving.

      I think the independent podcasts started losing when all these groups were created. When Adam Curry went to Apple, that was the end. Sure there’s pros for everyone from this but I think the cons will kill this great audio format. We are seeing this already with big companies coming in, even the US president is posting some speeches on iTunes. I have noticed alot of videocasts popping up. I’m watching more of those 10-20 minute shows because it’s a nice alternative to TV. Podcasts and videocasts are more entertaining than TV for me now.

      You guys should start videocasting, it would be funny to watch you guys podcast in the basement. Start a poll, guys.

      I respectfully disagree Jon, indie podcasters aren’t losing anything. Our numbers haven’t gone down once since this whole ride started. Sure the big companies will get their listenership, but honestly, I don’t think many of those people would dig what we’re doing anyway. Everyday, more and more people learn about podcasting, and we pick up listeners because of it. I’d much rather put out a show that friends recommend to each other than one forced into people’s faces by big media..

      As for videocasts, I can’t speak for AJ, but I really don’t have much desire to be seen. I enjoy this radio-ish medium too much to turn it into something else.. Though I could see it being fun to use as an add-on to special events, like show 200 or something..

      I hope you’re right and the small podcasters still have an audience and voice. I liked your soundscape podcast when you guys went to the liquer store. A videocast of a soundscape would be cool too.

      Quiet round here, isn’t it?

      Just a short note from a new listener to Bob & AJ: Cool show, great tunes.

      Cheers & Prost from Berlin (Germany not Scotland),

      Alan.

      PS: I think I have a poster with Polish beer labels stuffed away somewhere… Send me an address where to send it, and it’s yours.
