A return to regular podcasting

I have been incredibly bad at getting my podcasting going again. Apart from one episode of Purser Explores The World (which I need to repush because of the site breakage a little while back) I did absolutely nothing last year.

This is very bad.

So I've set myself a target. Starting on the 5th of February I am going to produce a weekly Lunch Time Science podcast. It will be half an hour long, and have the following format:

Good news everybody!

This week I've started pulling everything together to bring both For Science! and Purser Explores The World back to the internet airwaves :)

I won't reveal what the return episode of Purser Explores The World is going to be about, but suffice to say it's going to continue the same explorations and interview style that previous episodes had.

Tired but looking up

Ye gods I'm tired.

Mostly I think this is due to the prodigious amount of travel that I've been doing to Melbourne for work, which while interesting, has left me with very little time to get a handle on things that I want to do outside of work.

There is a light on the horizon though, it looks like the Melbourne sojourne is coming to an end, and that means that at the very least psychologically I can start looking at committing to doing things around Angry Beanie that I've been meaning to do for the past six months.

So here's a rundown of the tasks I've set myself.

End of the week notes

Well it's been a busy week work wise and Angry Beanie wise, over all I'm pretty happy with how things are going.

I'm currently working on making some changes to the Angry Beanie site. I've already added the three latest episodes as blocks on the front page featuring HTML5 players, but I'm also looking at rebuilding the Show and Episode pages. I'm just not happy with the layouts, too busy and not exactly attractive to look at.

Another For Science! out the door

Last night saw another episode of For Science! released.

We spoke about the child who appears to have been "functionally cured' of HIV, a new form of locomotion for robots, bacteria from Lake Vostok, Mars and cloning.

You can find the MP3 here:

Working things out

The last couple of months have been interesting for me.

I've had a couple of short contracts working with Drupal and Joomla and I have to say, I'm still very much a Drupal person. Joomla just doesn't seem to have the same polish, either in the core system or the module set around it. You may disagree but meh, everyone's different.
