Ericast 114 - "Interactive Audience Feedback"

An experiment this week on the YouTube side of things: The video has a few DVD-style menus built in. The video will pause, and you get to make your choice as to what you hear (and see) next.

This means that the audio-only podcast will make slightly less sense than usual... but it didn't have very far to fall, so I think you'll be okay.

As always, comments are welcome -- an e-mail to me (eric) at ericast dot com or, better yet, a phone call to 206-339-ERIC (a.k.a. 206-339-3742).

Let me know what you think of this one; it was somewhat tedious to put together, but I think the concept has potential...

Episode 113 - "Dealing With Liars"

No, not "lyres" -- this really is as inflammatory a title as you think it is. You'll want to comment on this one, and here's the method: call 206-339-3742 (206-339-ERIC if it's easier to remember the spelling than the number), or e-mail me (eric) at

It's also on the old-time Ericast episode schedule -- a smidge over 20 minutes. What's the topic? This week's discussion is about Proverbs 15:4, as read from the Daily Audio Bible podcast. Want to know more? Stop reading this summary and listen to the Ericast episode!

I also mention in passing my little side-project where you can donate to the podcast: (note the dash). More info on the story -- there's always a story with me! -- is available at the sister-site of the blog. But whether you want to read the back-story or not, you can still click the donate button at and give a few cents directly to me (as little as a dime!) as a "thank you" for the years of dedicated podcast entertainment that I've provided to you and the rest of humanity.

Hey, if you don't do "the ask," there's no chance that anyone will give, right? Let's see if it works...

Ericast 112 - "Selling My Dream"

The only thing saving this show from the scrap heap of the Recycle Bin is my dedication to you, the Ericast listener. Or viewer. Neither experience is optimal this week; too stilted for a smooth audio recording, too awkward for pretty video. But the topic conveyed is an important one to me, commemorating the death of a dream:


Speaking of communication and contact and discussion... do get in touch with me here at the Ericast, even if it's just to say "Hi! I'm listening!" You can call 206-339-3742 and leave a message (quick and painless), or drop an e-mail to me (eric) at And to clarify that e-mail address, in case it's its cryptic anti-SPAM phrasing here that's keeping you from successfully sending something... you type in the letters e, r, i and c, followed by an "at" sign, and then the domain of "Very simple, very easy" as Chef Tell used to say.
Does anyone remember the late Chef Tell from PM Magazine? Does anyone remember PM Magazine, even? Write or call and let me know!
