Things have been quiet here for the past year. Some of you may think that I’ve given up.

Not quite.

Episode 49 – Summer Projects

by The Shrinking Man June 11, 2013 Podcast

Welcome back, my friends! We’re doing something a little different this summer, and we’d like to have you be a part of it.This summer, we’re putting the Check-ins aside and focusing on you, the listeners, and on building a community around The Shrinking Man Project. Things have already gotten started over on the Fans of the Shrinking Man Project on Facebook. Each week I’ll be asking a Weekly Question on Wednesday, and issuing a Weekly Challenge each Sunday over in the Fans of the Shrinking Man Project. Please let us know what your summer projects are, and share your answers to the Weekly Question and the Weekly Challenges.

Special Episode 4 – The Shrinking Man Project Live!

by The Shrinking Man February 25, 2013 Philosophy

Time for another special episode recorded at Balticon 46. Like last episode, this one got held up for a while  because of the Balticon Wrap-up feed I’m doing over at Swimming Cat Studios. This is another simultaneous release, so if you’re subscribed to both feeds, you’ll get the same episode twice. Sorry about that. This is the recording from The Shrinking Man Project Live! with special guests, Veronica Giguere, Starla Huchton, Justin Macumber, and substituting for Tee Morris, Lauren “Scribe” Harris. This started as a revisiting of The Shrinking Man Project Live from Balticon 45, but ended up a little more like an episode of The Fit-2-Write podcast, a podcast that Lauren, Justin, and Tee started to talk about their own weight loss challenges. The topic for this panel was Inspiration, both for creative endeavors such as writing, and for starting and keeping with your weight loss program. We didn’t have a huge audience this year, but I think we had some really good discussion.

Special Episode 3 – Walking and Talking with Nathan Lowell, and M. G. Cady, and Veronica Giguere

by The Shrinking Man January 28, 2013 Special Episode

Hello, everyone! Today we have a Special Episode recorded one morning during Balticon 46. This episode was originally a chance for me to do a cross-over with Nathan Lowell’s Talking on my Morning Walk podcast, also known as #tommw. In fact, if you listen to Nathan’s podcast, you’ve already heard this audio. So why did it take me so long to release this audio? Well, one reason was that both Nathan and I were recording, and I wanted a chance to be able to combine both audio streams to create something that was easy to listen to. Nathan didn’t see the point in waiting. The other reason was that I’d decided that I was going to do a special podcast of audio recorded at Balticon and release it over at my Swimming Cat Studios site. While I started the project with the best of intentions, it quickly got pushed off to the side for other things, and it wasn’t until I got back to it that I re-discovered this audio.

I hope this will help warm your hearts in the cold winter months, and you’ll be able to pick out some of the projects that we talk about.

Time for some walking and talking!

Episode 47 – So Long 2012!

by The Shrinking Man December 31, 2012 Check In

I’m not dead yet! But 2012 is almost over, so here is an uncut retrospective episode to round out the year. This has been a year of ups and downs, but I still think there have been plenty of good things in 2012 worth remembering. If your year has been filled with more problems than blessings, remember the blessings and plan for more of them in the new year. Have a great year, folks!

Episode 43 – Slacking

by The Shrinking Man May 19, 2012 Check In

Yes, it’s been a month. And then almost another month after recording this audio before it was ready for release. But now I’m back with a new episode! It has been a month of ups and downs, and a lot of different things going on behind the scenes. It has been a long, tough month. I think the stress has been getting to me in different ways, but I’m trying to find my way past it.

This week we have a promo for Jeff Lane’s Podiobook “One Way”!

And we’re still counting down to Balticon!

Episode 42 – Gotta Get Out There!

by The Shrinking Man March 15, 2012 Check In

This week’s episode is a bit longer, and somewhat more rambly. I’ve taken a page from Nathan Lowell’s podcast Talking on my Morning Walk. This week’s episode was recorded while I was out walking my two-mile route near my house. It’s a little noisy, and there is a certain amount of heavy breathing, but what’s not to like?

This week we have a promo for the Kickstarter project for The Dark Wife Audiobook!

I’m still counting down to Balticon!

Episode 41 – On the long, slow slide

by The Shrinking Man March 4, 2012 Check In

In the weeks past, I’ve had some luck with maintenance, but lately, it has become clear that I’m not yet where I need to be to be able to maintain my weight without much effort. In recent weeks, it has become obvious that I’m on the long, slow slide to gaining it back. This episode isn’t a bit of Philosophy, but rather a reflection of what it means to be on that slide, and realizing it is time to get back to losing.

This week we have a new promo for the Secret World Chronicle, Season 5!

And there is some good news for folks planning on going to Balticon!

Episode 40 – Setting Goals

by The Shrinking Man February 6, 2012 Check In

It is the beginning of a new year, and this is the time that most people start looking at setting their goals for the new year. So, I thought it was time that I take a look at the goals that people set and the different ways that they prevent themselves from meeting them. Time to set some realistic goals. And have a great year!

Sorry, no featured promo this week.

Enjoy the show. See you next time!
