Recommendation 1 – Andrew Mayne

Just a short post, Andrew Mayne has recently started uploading a new podcast audiobook on Itunes.
And this is my recommendation… GET IT and get it now. I haven’t had time to listen yet as it will be some good bedtime listening for me.

But everything Andrew Mayne does is golden, his magic is amzing, his podcasts are exciting and books are riveting. This post might as wel just say ANDREW MAYNE. He has the brains of a science wizard and the skills of a master magician.

Here is a link straight to the podcast.

When the citizens of Boston begin to go missing in the fog in 1890,
it’s up to the mysterious Smith, inventor and adventurer, to figure out
what’s going on with the help of his assistant, April Malone. They’ll
have to face off against a secret society, corrupt policemen and a mad
psychologist hell-bent on dissecting Smith, in order to find out what’s
going on and to save the city from a graver threat.

This 4.5 hour science adventure novella is the first story about Smith, a mixture of Tony Stark, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Who.

I might as well just plug the rest of his stuff here too while i’m here.

His own site for his magics – http://www.andrewmayne.com/

Weird things website and podcast for weird stories and strange news from around the world or mainly eastern europe in many cases – http://weirdthings.com/

He is also one of the mayne (see what i did there) guys behind a very good magic news and review site – http://itricks.com/news/

He seems to also be a regular guest on anther podcast too – http://nsfwshow.com/

Also he works with the JREF now and then to help promote skepticism and to help administer tests – http://www.randi.org/site/

I will start doing alot of recommendations on here, due to me reading, listening, watching and playing alot.



Best Yet

Ok so i know this will most likely change but the last podcast session was awesome. Super fun. It may not be the longest episode i have done but to me it was the funniest.

We did a thought experiment which just meandered off into randomness.

But all in all it was fun. Go give it a listen. Episode 5.

This is linked with one of the things i spoke about.


New Podcast

Finally did a new podcast today but i couldn’t do much of one due to my laptop and it being broke. Pity but all i spoke about was QED and a few SITP events that are fairly local.

So woo hopefully it is absorbed into the beast that is Itunes by now.
Might get my ticket after pay day and then it’ll be time to find a suitable place to stay and maybe someone to go with.

Something to look forward to

So today i downloaded the Geologic Podcast which if you haven’t heard just go find it now it is the worlds best podcast with music, comedy, interesting bits of info and whatever else he thinks of. Amazing.

Anyway i was listening and found out that Geo, Mr George Hrab himself is hosting something called ‘QED’ which stands for Question Explore Discover and is a skeptical science festival which is going to be held on the 5th and 6th of February in Manchester. Jointly run by members of the Merseyside Skeptics Society and Greater Manchester Skeptics Society. It will also be the stage for the new stunt for the 10:23 campaign.

Anyway here is the link Boom!

Who is going? I want to go. I have even got work booked off which is weird as i booked that week off about 4 months ago. So i am pleased that my random holiday booking has worked in my favour. Yay.

So yeah this is something to look forward to and if any folk from Mansfield are interested in going we could get a mini bus or i can overcome my fear of driving far. Really far, far far far away…. i have Far by Geo in my head.

So let me know if you are wanting to go and maybe i could go with you or vice versa.

And to any people who actually have listened to my podcast i will be back on it next week i have been insanely busy with various things but hopefully all should be well next week and maybe i will have my theme completed and maybe a guest host of some sort or even a co-host. Well we’ll see…

I Love Amazon

How efficient and just awesome are Amazon. I ordered a new laptop charger because of my incident as described in my last post and yeah, a new came straight on through the little mail flap this morning which is amazing.

So speedy. Also it was really cheap, the charger was about £11 so i’m happy with that, it beats the £50 charger i saw in PC world.

Anyway yeah that means i am back to my blogging. Yay.

Hopefully later i may get episode two of the Skeptic Podcast Of Doom up on Itunes. Recording soon with Rich, which will be awesome hopefully i get my stuff together and i make it a good one. Well better than the last anyway.

Apparently i sound quite common and northern which amuses me but then again…. i suppose i very nearly am in a way.

Yeah if you want anything mentioning on my podcast let me know on here and i will pop it on.

Anything at all, Advertisements, Random Sillyness, Trash Talk. Just go For it.


Ok then after much hard work and stressing out my Podcast is uploaded there is a feed link on here if it doesn’t work for you i can send you a link just find me on facebook i have a link for that too.

I have it on google feedburner and hopefully it will be shortly be approved on itunes, but this may take a few days apparently. Anyway the feed that is up is mainly a test till i get a name for the podcast and till i pop a theme tune in.

But anyway take a look and let me know what you reckon to it and i know my accent is bad, i will try and kill it once and for all during the next recording.
