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!

A shout-out from the Fit-2-Write Podcast!

by The Shrinking Man March 21, 2012 Podcast

Got a surprise this morning! The Shrinking Man Project got a shout out at the end of episode 3 of the Fit-2-Write Podcast! Fit-2-Write is the pod-child of Justin Macumber, Tee Morris, and Lauren Harris, three writers trying to manage their weight and get into shape, while still making time to write, market, and publish their work. The podcast is an interesting round table discussion looking at the fears, pitfalls, and frustrations of getting and staying fit, and how our heroes deal with them.

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!

Back after a long hiatus, and posting just a bit late for the content, but it is time to celebrate the first anniversary of The Shrinking Man Project!

I have not podfaded!

by The Shrinking Man January 13, 2012 Podcast

An extremely rare blog post here today. Just wanted to let folks know that the next episode is in the works. I actually recorded Episode 39 between Christmas and New Year’s day, but there has been a hold up in the editing step. My lovely wife, Kee, does my audio editing, but she has been unable to do much with this episode due to extreme demands on her time. Back on December 28th, I had surgery to fix a circulation issue, so my wife’s time has been split between taking care of me, keeping the household running, and dealing with computer problems. Normally, I would take over the editing myself, but the afore-mentioned surgery has limited my ability to do that.

Special Episode 2 – Building an Exercise Program with Sandra Wickham

by The Shrinking Man November 19, 2011 Philosophy

Hello, folks. This is the first Special Episode for your enjoyment while I am off working on my NaNoWriMo project. For this episode, I got together via the magic of Skype and talked with personal trainer Sandra Wickham about how to develop a training routine, how to find a trainer, and what kind of information you need to get the most out of having a personal trainer and developing a workout.

Enjoy!
