Ericast 242 - What's My Profile?

Click here to listen to this week's episode!

It's listener feedback week!  And that comes on the heels of my going to the Social Media Breakfast last week (for the first time in a really long time) to hear "Minnesota Headhunter" Paul DeBettignies talk about Personal Branding.

So, so many fun topics in this week's episode.  You'll just have to listen for yourself and find out what fellow listeners like you called in to discuss.

I love doing this, and you guys -- you listeners in general, and Matt and Jonzer this week in particular -- are what keep me going.  Thank you!

Want to join in the voicemail extravaganza?  It's easy!  Just pick up the phone and dial 206-339-3742, which conveniently spells out 206-339-ERIC.  Or, if you want to do some sort of text-based response, I'll accept that when you email me (eric) at

Ericast 241 - Half Mile Deep

Click here to listen to this week's episode!

What's a half-mile deep and made of solid rock?  Sounds like the start of a poorly-conceived joke, but it's actually "The Soudan Underground Mine State Park in Northern Minnesota's Iron Range".  Which is where we went when we took our annual Spring vacation to Duluth this year.  Other interesting (albeit obscure) sights on that trip were the Laurentian Divide, plus some hidden gems in the Duluth city limits:  Waterfalls at Chester Creek, Tischer Creek and Lester River / Amnity Creek.

By the way, the post mentioned in this episode where Steve Borsch reminisces about the "old days" of podcasting can be found at his Connecting the Dots blog.  Other mentions include the height of the Radisson hotel in Duluth (which, it turns out, isn't as tall as the Alworth Building... but Duluth is so hilly it's really hard to tell what's taller than what when you look at downtown), Grandma's Marathon, the IDS center in Minneapolis,  and some other stuff that you can document for yourself in the comments area of this episode's blog post and help future listeners who follow in your auditory footsteps.

Thoughts?  Comments?  Suggestions?  Call 206-339-3742 (a.k.a. 206-339-ERIC) or email me (eric) at  Of all my email addresses that had hiccups during the hosting transition, that one has been safe.  Email at will!
