One could just about create a "best of podcasting" podcast based only on
the output one produced for that little project. Having lost my own
personalized K7 number to this phenomenon, I understand the importance.
And it'd be kinda fun to do.
Hell, I'll do it myself. All you need to do is click on the PayPal
"Donate" button on http://grizzly.libsyn.com
once a month, dump in some
nominal amount, maybe a buck, and a note indicating the podcast, the
number, and some personal note if and only if you listen to the incoherent
babbling I spew on my show. If you show is one I listen to, you'll also
get a voice comment by the International Celebrity Host of Grizzly's
Growls. (Hey, half a dozen countries listening counts as International
Celebrity, though Jay Leno might disagree.)
Given that the -only- phone I have is my cellphone, and that costs me
fifty cents a minute, you'll get what you pay for. And I'm a brilliant
commentarian. Or I will be. And since there's no such thing as a
commentarian, whatever I do will define the industry, and is therefore by
definition brilliant. So you're welcome to post comments declaiming on my
brilliance and selfishness. Err... selflessness. Yeah, that's what I
meant to say.
Assuming I actually say anything.
But, hey, you get what you pay for.
