I was recently over at Mike’s house for dinner and, after I’d discovered and drank the beer he tried to hide from me, we got talking about the blog. One idea I’d had was a VERY infrequent 4P podcast (once or twice a year). For those of you living in 2007, podcasts are basically just audio files that you play on your computer or you can download to your iPod. You’d play it whenever you want (it wouldn’t be a “live” show) and it’d be like a radio show starring those wacky Four Pillars characters.
In terms of a general show format, Mike and I would convert our advertising revenue into beer, setup a microphone, then talk about finances while we drank. The show would end when we are intoxicated enough that I’m ranting about gender-specific, single-user washrooms (they make NO sense!) and Mike is talking about how much he loves cheese. Maybe we’d throw in a prank phone call to another Canadian PF blog while we’re sober enough to dial.
Mike wasn’t wildly enthusiastic about the idea and was worried that beyond the novelty of what we sound like there wouldn’t be much interest. If this *IS* something you’d be interested in, please leave a comment below to try to convince Mike. Say something about what you’d want to hear in the show (if you just want to hear what we sound like, make something up). Format or topic ideas would both be good or even just a “sounds good, you should do it” comment. Hopefully if there’s enough interest Mike may change his mind (or I’ll just wear a hidden microphone next time we hang out).
