Ericast 203: Holiday Train Spotting

Click here to listen to this week's episode!

Having coined the term "zeppelinspotting" back in Ericast #173 I now feel a tad odd turning "trainspotting" into two words... but, hey, we're all entitled to botch a podcast title or two in every series, right?  Maybe you could argue that it's really a pun on "Holiday Train", so we're "spotting the Holiday Train" instead of "doing trainspotting on a holiday"... maybe?

This episode talks about "the show I've never been able to make" because I can't score the interview that I really want to have.  So, instead of that, I have two very special guests summarize our experience with the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train as it stopped here in the Twin Cities.

(For those wracking their brains trying to figure out the bulldog reference I made, you want to do some research on Spike and Chester... and just think of me as a "fawning sycophant," as that site phrases it.)

Questions?  Comments?  Train-related thoughts?  Got a caboose in your train of thought and want to talk to a voicemail box in hopes the train starts up again?  (That metaphor needs work...)  Call the listener feedback line at 206-339-3742 (a.k.a. 206-339-ERIC) or email me (eric) at
