Ericast 100 - "Being Emotionally Healthy"

THIS IS IT! Lucky episode 100! Thanks to all my loyal listeners, and greetings to all my new ones! I'm happy to have both of you on-board.

An important warning to all Ericast subscribers: Next week (the week of February 1st) I'm going to "push the button" on the conversion from Feedburner to Google. I have no idea what's going to happen... but I have a sinking feeling that a bunch of old Ericast episodes are going to come flooding back into the feed. If so... my apologies in advance.

This week's episode is a celebration of work-life balance. I wish I could say something more dramatic, but I can't. At least it's out in-the-wild now!

Call in with comments to 206-339-ERIC (206-339-3742 for the letter-challenged) or send an e-mail to me (eric) at Follow my daily updates with my Twitter account at And don't forget to connect to me on LinkedIn or Facebook (if you need help, send me an e-mail and ask me how).

By the way, speaking of e-mail, you'll notice that I only reference the fact that you can e-mail me (eric) at Why is that? Because I don't want any horrible evil SPAM-bots to figure out what my e-mail address really is. It's not rocket science, sure, but if I put my exact e-mail address "in print" I think I'd be in trouble. When in doubt, call the Ericast listener feedback line and get in touch with me that way.

Ericast Update From-The-Keyboard

This is just a quick update coming through the old "Ericast Update From The Keyboard" function, which was built on a service by (That's T-A-L-K-R .com, with no 'E'. All the cool Web 2.0 services have to drop out the vowels, right?) From the looks of it, the feeds and the service are still active, which surprises me -- most services like this, rather than getting more popular, have actually disappeared. Here's hoping that this one stays around.

If you know of anything similar -- that is, a web service that takes written text and converts it to a spoken MP3 which can be pulled into a podcast -- let me know. As always, you can drop a note to eric at, or call our listener feedback like at 206-339-3742.

Until next time... take care!
