Episode 19 – The Medical Mystery Tour

by The Shrinking Man April 26, 2011 Check In

Reports of my death are extremely exaggerated. Really. If I were dead, it would be a lot harder to do this podcast. Or it would be a zombie podcast with a lot of moaning and such. But I am back for another check-in, and I’ve logged my share of time in waiting rooms for this […]


Episode 18 – On the Plateau

by The Shrinking Man April 20, 2011 Check In

Another week of speaking from the plateau. It has been a frustrating time, but I believe that I will be able to endeavor through. I just don’t know how long it might take. Other than being stuck, things seem to be going rather well, but it is hard to take joy in it when my […]


Episode 17 – Take Your Time

by The Shrinking Man April 13, 2011 Check In

This last week wasn’t bad… it just seemed like nothing quite worked out the way I expected. Yes, that’s the way things usually work out in the world, it’s just that this week there seemed to be more of it than usual. I survived, and I live to podcast another day. And of course, no […]

Episode 15 – Declaring Victory

by The Shrinking Man April 1, 2011 Check In

I am back with another check in. I hope everyone enjoyed last week’s Philosophy episode, long and rambly as it was. I shall try to keep things on the short side this week. This week’s we are featuring a promo for Brand Gamblin’s new podcast novel, The Hidden Institute. This is an excellent steampunk tale […]

by The Shrinking Man March 25, 2011 Check In

Welcome back, folks. We’re finally back to Philosophy this week. This week we are looking at The Hijack Highway, and what it is that makes you react instead of think. Usually with results you really wanted to avoid. This week we are featuring a new promo for Nutty Bites! Have you been listening? Enjoy the […]


Episode 13 – Takin’ care of business

by The Shrinking Man March 15, 2011 Check In

Another week has gone by, and it is time for another check in. I’ve spent the last week getting things done and out of the way. I’m still not caught up, but I’ve managed to get some long-standing things off of my plate, and figure out how I can manage to get other things done […]

Episode 12 – Reboot

by The Shrinking Man March 9, 2011 Check In

This week we’re starting over. Trying to get back to the beginning and set out on the right foot, bringing things in one by one as I can. The hospital saga has been left behind, I’m feeling better, but I can’t just drop back into the same old routine. So it is back to the […]


Episode 11 – Shattered

by The Shrinking Man March 2, 2011 Check In

Last week started off in control, on target, and right on schedule… and then it exploded into chaos. The wheels came off in just about every sense except the literal one this week. This week’s check in is a study in what stress will do to you. This episode is kind of its own thing. […]
