AmeriNZ 293 – Resumption

A new year, a new start. That means updates, starting with the holidays and moving on through the diet as well as some things a bit more exciting (for me, anyway…). Then, it’s a whole bunch of updates about various podcasts I’ve been part of, including this one. The voicemail phone line is no more, so I offer some suggestions on how you can send me an audio message.

We’re recording a new 2Political Podcast this week, and there will be a new The Third Colony on soon (maybe even this weekend!). And THIS podcast will be back again soon!

By the way, I’ve made a slight change to the way I do links: They’re still clickable on the website, but I’ve also included them in parenthesis so people can get the links from the MP3 file details without having to go to the website. I wanted to try this to make sure it works the way I intend it to before I mention it on the podcast itself.

AmeriNZ 257 – Winter now

It’s winter, and a new season means some new changes, and I start with that. The deck is finished, which is good. I had some health news which was less good, but not horrible—yet. I decided I’d talk about that in case it’s of some help to someone else. From there, it’s updates on the natural disasters plaguing New Zealand, including news from today on the Christchurch earthquake. As part of that discussion, I play a clip from my other podcast, 2Political, in which I talked about liquefaction. Despite the serious subjects, I still manage a few giggles, of course.
