Hey everybody! Dave here. I just wanted to let you all know that Wasting ALL the Time has launched a Patreon page in order to allow us to take this podcast to new heights. As you may know, we recently moved into a new studio space and we have plans to start making even more new and interesting content beyond our weekly show. With your help (as little as $1 per month), we see a bright and glorious future for Drowning Man Productions and this little podcast.
As always, thank you ever so much!
(PS. Goodnight, folks! - Jon)
Hellooo!! We are excited to announce that Drowning Man Productions (we) have an online store for podcast-related merchandise! It is being run through Zazzle and we have a link to it under the "SUPPORT US!" tab of the navigation bar.
Welcome back to Last Century… This week I listened to Ep. 74 - The Vinnie Jones Method which had Jay Patrick as our guest. In the cold opening we talked a little about how popular podcasters are. Jay is an actor in the Sacramento area that all three of us have performed with at one time or another. A funny guy! He most recently joined us on Ep. 156. ...
Ladies and gentlemen! It's about time we get ready for our annual American Independence Day special episode. To pull this off, we need your scene suggestions regarding the important moments in early United States History. To help us out, we ask that you submit your ideas through our special July4 contact form.
This week I'm going to listen to Ep. 73 - Marmoset Day. I began this ep with an unnecessary apology for sound quality because we used to record right next to the air conditioning unit. Yeah, it sounds different. Yeah, it's not great. No, it probably didn't need to be called out before it even started. Whatevs. This was the first appearance of fan and most frequent guest, Will Reed! This episode begins with a not un-typical scrambled beginning segment, followed by Will introducing himself. We talked about the Women in Science LEGO sets and the Brick Breakdown segment on the All Us Geeks podcast. ...
Well, well, well... time for another look back at 100 episodes ago! This week we're listening back to Ep. 72 - Your Dukeliness. Jon begins by explaining that the Geneva Conventions proscribes our time-wasting efforts. He also points out that if you want to see us prosecuted for war crimes, you should rate and review the podcast on iTunes to make us popular enough to go after.
Welcome back to Last Century! This week we released episode 171 so let's take a look back to Ep. 71 - The Evil Geniuses Without Borders Association. This episode kicks off with a long-ish cold opening with some fun random banter that happened before we began the official session. Someone let a "thyme" joke happen. We're sorry.
Well, now is as good a time as any to let you all know that the three of us will be giving a panel at BayCon 2016 about our experiences with podcasting! We're going to lay it all out on the table... Who thought it would be a good idea for us to podcast? How did we actually start? Why didn't we stop? Where and how have we recorded all this time wasting? How have we improved and what are we doing to continue improving? So much to talk about and it might even be fun!
On May 22nd, 2014, we released another "reserve" episode that was titled Ep. 70 - The Sharket. Obviously, May was a difficult month for us to schedule recordings.
The cold open was us discussing how to handle the dated intro song for that episode.
For What Have You Been Up To? Jon pretended that we were once again dead (hence the need for a reserve ep). I was hoping that we would share fantastic stories about how we had died, but we didn't discuss that ahead of time and wires were crossed so it didn't happen. Instead, I complained about Ted the Intern. ...
100 episodes ago was Ep. 69 - Super Mega Ginseng Adventure -- GO! for May 14th, 2014. This episode was the first time that Cody and I recorded an episode by ourselves. Jon was unable to record that week and we were unable to get a guest to take his place. It was scary! What would happen?! As I recall, this is one of the few episodes that we recorded in the garage of Cody's own house. If I'm not wrong, there was a really obnoxious compressor of some sort for an appliance of some sort that made a harsh buzzing noise of some sort that ruined our recording flow of some sort for some reason. ...
