STS 009 - Christmas in the virtual barber shop

We won't call this the Christmas Special, but that's what it is in reality.

In this episode, I will take you to the virtual barbershop; an audio illusion that will freak you and your ears out  (in a positive way I mean).

Also, there's sound (and vision, see below) of a bunch of top-notch voice-over cators that are reading a classic Christmas Tale.

Happy Holidays, you all!

STS 008 - Funny laws worldwide


We will cover a lot of ground in this episode and will do our very best to answer a few pressing questions. For example:

- What are the most funny laws worldwide?
- At what time should we start playing Christmas music?
- Why was I so sad to hear that Tom Magliozzi died?
- Does Leonard Nimoy (aka Mr. Spock in Star Trek) know everything?

STS 007 - The Halloween Special

This episode is being issued on the eve of Halloween, so it has every right to be named The Halloween Special. We'll talk about Fat Girl Halloween Costumes at Walmart, the spooky sound of outer space and some great tips to improve your productivity (it involves lukewarm lemon water). The episode ends in style with a gorgeous song from Georgia, the former USSR republic, not the US state.

STS 006 - Stick it

I admit, this podcast starts rather strange, with me walking home after I forgot my keys in the office. After that nice evening walk, I continue in the studio to talk about my stay in Seattle, a funny Youtube commercial and the hamburgers at McDonalds.

STS 005 - We are back

Aaaaaaand ... we're back!

After about six months of radio silence, it is time for a new episode.
We will discuss what has been going on in my life these past few months, talk about roundabouts in Canada and share some details about National Podcast Day. Also, the BBC had to make excuses after an embarrassing On Air radio mistake.

STS 004 - A microphone shoutout from New York

This episode, we are broadcasting on location. How exciting! Episode #4 is coming to you from Niagra Falls, NY. Say what?

I'll explain the reasons behind this little field trip and I'll do the microphone shoutout I have been promising for a while. The mic's I used are listed below. Click on the image for more details.

We also received a surprise audio clip from my friend and former radio colleague Floris Daelemans, see the picture above. Find him @florisdaelemans. And by the way, here's the gym room I recorded parts of my audio in:

STS 002 - Accents sound better

What a great response we had after episode #1, thank you so much!

In this new episode, we revisit our baseline: 'everything sounds sexier with an accent'. Don't take our word for it, just read what the good folks at CNN write about the sexiest accents in the world.

We discuss a new microphone I am using, the Audio-Technica ATR2100 and our two podcast plugs of the week are Broadcast Basement and Warp 10 Podcast.

Enjoy!

STS 001 - There is a first for everything

There is a first for everything.
Like the first episode of this podcast for example.
Welcome to the English version of a Dutch podcast I have been doing for a while now.

In this very first episode, I share probably the best prank ever that somebody pulled on a telemarketer, courtesy of Tom Mabe. There's podcast news coming from Ice-T and the podcast plug of the week is featuring The Podcast Answer Man.
