Skepchicks, I lurve ya’s for telling it like it is.

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

Skepticism extends beyond used cars, religion, and diet fads. It is, essentially, having an active BS meter armed with accurate-as-we-can-manage knowledge about the world we live in, and giving a second look at everything, including our own cultural assumptions.
The Skepchicks just posted an article about several of the things that make me not want to [...]

Feed shift to new website

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

Due to some unexpected alterations and with the generous help of Chris Lester, author podcaster of the Metamor City podcast fiction yumminess, I’m rebooting the podcast over to the much simpler to remember URL: and forwarding the old feed to this page through iTunes. I say I’m doing this with the definition of [...]

Another interview, on another feed, on another topic…

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

If you head over to the Steampod podcast, I just intervied Gail Carriger, a childfree author whose first steampunk novel comes out this fall. There’s an on-page player and a download link. I can’t wait for her book to come out. Gah! Gah, I say again!
The next episode of TASCF will [...]

TASCF is leaving Farpoint Media, so enjoy the closing tag music, because the message will change. No podosphere drama, and I’m welcome back. Explanation in the audio. The feed may be altered, particularly if you’re using a phone to download your mp3s. iTunes SHOULD be ok. Here’s hoping.
Docs… allergy/ear not [...]

Nope, I’m baa-aack! Read previous blog posts for details.
This is a feed test as much as an “I’m not dead” post. Resubscribing may be necessary in the near future. Check this page for whether that’s happening and other details.
Happy Things: free tools, ferrets and finishing crafts (pics on my flickr), and the [...]

Voice back, now for the energy level…

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

Tree pollen season has ebbed enough to allow me to speak again. Unfortunately, that took a whole week, and this week I’ve been crashing around 2pm each day. I’m not entirely sure if I’m fighting off some lowgrade something or if I’m backsliding after the first stressor after the antivirals have well and [...]

Ye gads, I’ve been taken out by a tree!

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

To be more specific, no episode is going out this weekend because tree pollen counts have risen beyond my allergy medications’ abilities to cope. I have gone froggy-throated from drainage (TMI?), with a high chance of voicelessness by tomorrow. If I still can’t talk by Tuesday, I’ll put out the prerecorded PSA. [...]

For new listeners, the “best of” lists

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Particularly for new listeners who want to hopscotch through the archives to get a feel for the show, I have selected 5 episodes from each year that seemed of most enduring interest. The links go to the permanent pages of the episodes, which have the download and player buttons for the mp3.

Year 1, March [...]

Yay! I’m finally better!

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

That just dragged on for way too long. OK, now to work on podcasting, now that I sound normal again.
Expect a post with pics of knitted things, shiny things, and a big trade have/seeking list with photo links in a few days. I know we’re all short on cash, but perhaps the stuff [...]

Ugh. Nyquil level sick.

Friday, February 6th, 2009

The podcast will not be going out late this week, but rather, early next week. I feel wretched when I am awake. Nyquil tends to fix the awake part. Back soon,

TASCF-063-Hello 2009!

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

3 news items:
1. Bowling Green Group now meeting,
2. the Uterus recall (hee!)
3. It has reached a point where it almost makes sense to ask each health care provider what their definition of abortion is before you let them treat you….. Those of you using IUDs and other device-based birth control, be careful and attentive to [...]

My iRiver is dead. All hail the iRiver.

Friday, January 9th, 2009

The warning signs didn’t lie. Poor ol’ thing’s HD doesn’t even hum a bit when trying to power up. *sniff* It was a lovely lil box while it lasted. I had just recorded 2 things for other folks and transferred them to my PC, so you may hear my voice elsewhere [...]
