187: Man, It's A Hot One

Belated podcast for August, American summer is just like that. No idea what we talked about, but I know we had a good time. [more inside]

185: A very wearing my bathrobe all day day

It's episode 185 of the MeFi Monthly Podcast, with Jessamyn and I talking for a good chunk up front about the whole process over the last couple months of figuring out transferring ownership of the site from me to her. We also talk about, like, good stuff from the site for most of it. [more inside]

184: Sentences are music

I didn't edit or write this month's podcast (other than this little bit)! Thanks so much to eotvos for all his work on this; note his note at the end of the podcast about other possible contributions as well! In any case, Jessamyn and I talk about MetaFilter as we are wont to do; it runs the usual 90-ish minutes. [more inside]

183: Severance, not Succession

It was a very busy turn of the month so we're wandering in pretty late with this episode. I talk a little bit about my recent decision to transition away from running MetaFilter (but we'll, inter alia, keep podcasting); Jessamyn and I talk about MeFi stuff as per usual; we establish that she started watching the wrong show and couldn't figure out why people liked it; and we chatter about at least three words we're not sure how to pronounce and establish, once more, that neither of us can read IPA. Runs our usual "about 90 minutes". [more inside]

180: Is Sunset A Local Phenomenon?

I checked in with management and apparently we have to do a 2022 now even though we just finished wiht 2021. Jessamyn and I do our best to roll into the new year and talk about MetaFilter stuff and get in a philosophical discussion of the nature of the literal horizon qua solar objects. Runs about 90 minutes. [more inside]

179: Calendrical Is Totally A Word

In our triumphant return to posting podcasts at the turn of the month, Jess and I talk about time management and reminders, complicated conversational dynamics, the assassination of JFK (but only very briefly), and a bunch of somewhat more MetaFilter-centric things. We time-managed our way up to about 93 minutes. Also I play a euphonium. [more inside]

178: Leisure Suit Larry's, Uh, Pixels

We got a rootin' tootin' podcast here. Darn tootin'. Can you both rootin'- and darn'- something that's tootin' in the same paragraph like this? I don't know. I really don't know. I might be going to podcast jail. Before that happens, though, here's me and jessamyn chattering about MetaFilter, the nature of daylight, representation vs. allusion in crappy old Sierra erotic comedy adventures, MetaFilter, the concept of (for some reason) No Nut November, "Meta", and who knows what else because we're both still getting used to the time change. It runs exactly, precisely, to the second 90 minutes. [more inside]

177: Good Soup

I accidentally wrote "make a podcast" on a colander instead of the calendar, so on the downside this episode is pretty late but on the upside it has been thoroughly rinsed. Is that anything? Can we do anything with that? Anyway, here's a podcast, it's about 90 minutes, and it involves me and Jessamyn getting off on at least a couple different tangents on the subject *of* getting off on tangents, so it's a very MetaFilter podcast indeed.

176: Low-Key Podcast

Jessamyn and I managed to stumble our way into and through a podcast despite both having the needle pegged hard to E this afternoon, and here is recorded evidence of that fact, at about 75 minutes. [more inside]

175: Don't Throw The Banana Peel In The Toilet

It's only the first day of August, but the weather in Portland is such that it already feeling like plural dog days have elapsed. And yet, through it all, a podcast episode drags itself through the sun-baked streets to appear, sweating and winded, on your doorstep. Come along with Jessamyn and I as we...chatter about MetaFilter? Basically what we normally do. This one's about an hour and 45. [more inside]

174: Knobs and Dials

Jessamyn and I were both feeling excessively chatty today so this one clocks in at about one hour fifty five, with discussions about MeFi, Ask, etc. along with a bunch of wanderings and heat wave chatter. Also there is a spider and a bird, and Jessamyn saw a bear outside her window. Also I fixed my goddam GarageBand, so we have music tracks again. I missed those. [more inside]

172: I'll Get There At Some Point

I'll be straight with you: this is an episode, of a podcast, and it's me and Jessamyn, and we talk about MetaFilter and stuff adjacent to MetaFilter. There's no sugar-coating it: this is 90 minutes of MeFi-adjacent chatter. [more inside]

169: Soon May The Podcast Come

It's Febuary, Februr, uh, it's Ferbur—it's not January anymore and here's a new podcast episode.

Runs about 85 minutes. [more inside]

165: Take What We've Got

It's July, which is podcast season, or so the man at the podcast store told me. So jessamyn and I bought ourselves a podcast and took it out on the lake and, honestly, I don't know where I'm going with this. It's Friday, I'm pooped, we talk about MeFi stuff a bunch, it's about 90 minutes long, here you go. [more inside]

164: It's Been A Rough Week

Podcast time, and jessamyn and are I back talking about a bunch of stuff we liked from MetaFilter as usual, and talking a bit about the hard stuff surrounding George Floyd and Minneapolis, and also absolutely plotzing about having two new mods join the team! Welcome again, travelingthyme and loup. This episode is long even for us, about an hour and forty total. [more inside]

163: You must understand!

It was a time known as The Great Resetting, when, after a months of wandering in a week late or so with episodes, jessamyn and I finally managed to release a new episode smack dab on the 1st. It was spoken of in legend as...episode 163 of the MetaFilter podcast. [more inside]

162: Grip It And Rip It

Jessamyn and I do what we do best: manage to show up and record a podcast despite it all. We talk about (a) a bunch of COVID stuff and (b) a bunch of stuff that has nothing to do with COVID and (c) the whole process of trying to navigate that balance. I drink most of a tall beer. Jessamyn is hopped up on decaf coffee. It's wild. Runs about 80 minutes. [more inside]

160: That Was A Bood Posscat

Like Frodo and Sam enduring the travails of Mordor, Jessamyn and I have managed somehow to surmount the difficulties of the world to produce a podcast episode this month. Instead of getting a finger bit off we just lost some of our usual running time, so this is a lembas-thin 56 minutes. Also just to be clear there is literally no discussion of Tolkeinian mythology in this episode, I'm just punchy on a Friday night and you're getting whatever comes out of the keyboard at this point. Elevensies. [more inside]

159: Enter The Talkredoers

Kicking off the year with a podcast that tried very hard not to happen, but by god me and jessamyn pulled it off after all, despite reschedules and weird recording problems that cost us a little bit of audio early on. Runs about 80 minutes and features some robot noises. [more inside]

157: That's The Title, Everyone Get Back To Work And Thank You

It's our Halloween episode, which is not particularly spooOOOOooOOoooky because I accidentally left it out on the counter overnight after we recorded it yesterday. But jessamyn and I catch up on the last month of MeFi stuff and you can't prove that there wasn't also a ghost on the call. Runs about 90 minutes. [more inside]

154: I Learned It By Reading

We're back after a skipped month with an unsurprisingly longer-than-usual podcast episode, as jessamyn and I chatter about all the ususal site stuff (a month's worth is generally too much, two months definitely so) and also talk a little about MeFi history, recent site challenges, the 20th anniversary, and so on. Runs just about two hours total. [more inside]

153 - Josh Ruins Taiga

It's time for that monthly podcast: jessamyn and I caught up yesterday on the last month or so of all things MetaFilter, Ask MetaFilter, Projects, and so forth through the ol' enumeration of subsites. We also talk about trivia a little, and as a result I ruin taiga and possibly everything else. We also got to wondering whether Jeopardy would throw you off the show for refusing to answer questions in good faith, so, hey, Jeopardy folks: any good stories there? [more inside]

148: 2019 New Year Call-In Episode

Sheesh, it's a week into the year and I still keep trying to write "2018" on my podcasts. But it's the new year, and Jessamyn and I catch up on what's happened on the big blue linky sea lately. Also occasionally featuring my neighbor's rented wood chipper! But also, more importantly, featuring messages from a whole bunch of MeFites who called in to share well wishes, new year greetings, old year ass-and-screendoorings, and some lovely and heartfelt thoughts about where they are, where we are, and hoping for us all to keep getting there together in the next year.

147: We Forgot What We Were Gonna Call This One

November isn't even quite over yet but Jessamyn and I are entirely done with it, and document a bunch of the good bits and some of the not so great ones in this episode of the MeFi monthly podcast. Also there is a very clever bird and some nude cats. Also I make a pretty solid joke about clouds. It's actually not very solid. The joke I mean. Also obviously not the clouds, they're made of vapor, c'mon. Yes. Okay. Hello. [more inside]

146: GO VOTE

It's a remarkably short one this month—just over 50 minutes—because my throat was sore in what turned out to be the preface to a nasty cold that knocked me out all weekend, which is why we recorded this last week and it's only going up to day! But here it is! Also, vote! [more inside]

In this podcast ep, I talk with Jessamyn about going camping, driving a stick-shift VW camper van, getting a cold, having a cold, and also a great deal of MetaFilter stuff.

I obsess about house numbers a little, and we chatter about weddings and downtimes and some of that recent Stack Overflow stuff and so on. Runs about 90 minutes. [more inside]
