Episode 24 – Balticon Almost Live

by The Shrinking Man June 3, 2011 Check In

This week we have the audio from Balticon, which unfortunately isn’t complete. A power failure in the middle of the podcast cut the audio short, but here is what we managed to get recorded, plus my check-in for this week. In a few weeks, I’ll get back in touch with Val and Tee and we’ll […]


Episode 23 – Countdown to Balticon

by The Shrinking Man May 27, 2011 Check In

This week is all about getting ready for Balticon 45! Next weekend has a full schedule and lots of great activities. So much, I can’t get them all in the podcast! But I do talk about where you can find me at the convention, and I hope that I’ll be able to record some in-person […]


Episode 22 – Convention Survival Strategies

by The Shrinking Man May 18, 2011 Check In

This past week has yielded some unexpected results. I guess sometimes things just happen and you don’t know why. You take what you can from the experience and move to the next phase. This week’s promo is from Thomas Reed and his series of Bitstrips web cartoons. Enjoy the show. See you next week! Show […]


Episode 21 – The Good, The Bad, and The Exhausted

by The Shrinking Man May 11, 2011 Check In

Getting back onto plan this week. Not the easiest of starts, but more success than bumps in the road. This is a very busy time heading down the road to Balticon 45, but I’m still managing to keep afloat. Looking forward to seeing you there! This week’s promo is for J. Daniel Sawyer’s Free Will […]


Episode 20 – Breaking the Tyranny of the Scale

by The Shrinking Man May 6, 2011 Check In

Sometimes a thought and a plan will just converge. This week’s Philosophy section was something that I had planned way back when before I started the podcast, but Julie brought up something last week that fit in perfectly with this topic and with what I’ve been going through. It put a new spin on things […]


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 16 – The Yo-Yo Effect

by The Shrinking Man April 7, 2011 Check In

Wow. What a week! Some exciting Balticon news came out this week. I hope you will be able to be there this Memorial Day Weekend! This week’s we are featuring a promo for Katarina Maimer’s new podcast novel, Wiener Blut. Literally, this translates as “Viennese blood”. It is a story set in the coffee culture […]


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 […]
