Podcast


I am thinking about doing a weekly podcast to go with this blog. I feel I am a better talker than writer.

Since I have started writing this blog my grammar has improved and I have occasionaly started to beat Tracy at Scrabble. 7 letter words are the key, although good use of the triple letter score box can yield surprisingly good results. Scrabble is my favourite board game.

When I was young we used to listen to a radio programme every week on the BBC called "Alistar Cookes letter from America", we didn't have a TV on religious grounds, but I am not to scarred by that.

Anyway I loved the programme, maybe it could be similar "Brian Heasleys letter from Ibiza" except it would be a podcast! just like Alistars was a radio broadcast not a letter!

Should I have a theme, Ibizan life? God stuff? or just general randomness?

A friend has said they will get it set up on itunes for me, which is cool, I am thinking 10 minutes!

Be interested in what you think?

Brian's Randomness sounds great. I look forward to it.
P.S. I'm not allowed to play Scrabble anymore. :(

I have fond memories of Alistair Cooke, it reminds me of when we were all young and I was even younger. Funnily enough scrabble is my first memory of our parents many years ago in the upstairs of a church, thanks. And I banned Tanya from playing scrabble, for arguing too much.

sounds like a class idea, although i have no idea how it works! Being an English teacher, I say horray for scrabble, although i am pants at it!

go on! go for general randomness. Check out the Ricky Gervais show podcast with Carl Pilkington for some inspiration.

Could be an interesting idea. If it's going to help you get across the message you want to then give it a go, spreading the love of God in all forms of culture is our call.

I would love to know what you think of my blog, not because I'm looking for praise etc, but as I'm wondering if it's worth continuing with and hope that people start to engaue with it and that it sparks debate and passion and ideas that help us transform ourselves and our world.
