“Where’s the new episode of Geeked on History!?”

Hi folks!

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve issued new content for the Geeked on History community. Some of you may have some concerns, but have no fear!

In lieu of a brand new episode, I’d like to let you all know what I’ve been up to.

About 3 weeks back, I had the pleasure of bumping into a veteran of the Berlin Airlift. I knew right away that I would have to ask him for an interview, and the next week I was able to sit down with him and ask him some questions about his immediately post-war experiences in the service in the city of Berlin.

Right now, that episode is being edited, and I hope to have it out sometime in the very near future. He has some crazy experiences, so you’ll definitely want to make sure you download that when it is available!

I was also invited to be a part of “The History Podcasters” network. I have submitted a 10 minute podcast to their history collage on influential women, and so I encourage you all to check it out once it’s ready.

Finally, I’m not sure if I’ve ever made it clear in the past, but Geeked on History up until this time has been 100% my baby. I have always done all of the research, recording, editing and publishing on my own, but because of some slight inconsistencies in editing quality (and frankly the time it takes to produce a full show) I have decided to enlist a little bit of help.

A close friend of mine, Ryan will be helping me out with the editing of the podcast from now on. I hope that this will enable the show to come out on a more consistent schedule, and will free me up to improve on the quality of research I can do for each show.

Thanks again, loyal geeks for taking the time to visit the site, read this post and listen to the podcast. And until next time, stay geeky!

Moulin Rouge Re-issue

Hello, geeky colleagues!

Here at the Geeked on History podcast, we like to maintain a certain standard of recording and editing quality.

It’s my personal opinion that a podcast that sounds like it was recorded in someone’s garage can be distracting and detract from the content of the speaker. Bad edits tend to do the same thing.

A listener of the podcast (thank you very much to the listener for letting me know!) pointed out that the Moulin Rouge podcast had a couple small issues with the editing.

So to show that I am truly comitted to the quality of the podcast, I would like to re-issue the Magical Mystical Moulin Rouge with improved edits. If you’d like the reissued version, it is now available by reviewing the previous blogpost on the moulin rouge, or by downloading from Itunes.

If you hear something amiss with the podcast, I encourage you to let me know so that I can rectify the issues in quality. If it bothered you, it surely bothered others.

Thanks, and stay geeky!

The Endless Winter of 1816

In 1816, unusual global weather patterns caused what would have been the summer months, to be an extension of winter. Crops failed, and many died from starvation and disease throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Listen to this week’s podcast to hear more!
