MikeyPod 9 | The Committee to Free Frances Newton

Tonight I went to a meeting of The Committee to Free Frances Newton. Frances Newton is on death row for allegedly killing her Husband and two children. She is scheduled to be killed on September 14. I am going to continue podcasting at each of the events of this group that I participate in, and will be conducting interviews with people who are close to Frances and the case.

MikeyPod 7 | Soundseeing at Rat Park

Due to the liberal use of the brown word in this episode, listener discretion is advised.

notes:
Stereo Total “I Am Naked” from the album Do The Bambi buy it!

Promo: Illumination Audio

After reading an article in The Houston Press about a Downtown park that is infested with rats, Brandon, Holland, Kortney, and I (I think she said it was spelled with a K) decide to hunt for rats on our own. If nothing else, this soundseeing adventure should illustrate perfectly why I don’t date girls.

MikeyPod 6 | Dancer Jane Weiner

I recorded this week’s show in Audacity after reading Todd Cochran’s Podcasting: The Do It Yourself Guide. I am quite happy with the sound this week. YAY! Let me know how it sounds!

Hopestone Dance’s Artistic Director Jane Weiner is my guest this week. We spent a rainy friday afternoon together to discuss her upcoming performance The Cooking Show. Jane’s contribution to the arts in Houston, as well her dedication to bringing the arts to children who are at risk made her a perfect candidate to be a guest on the show. I hope you enjoy the interview.

MikeyPod 3 | Midtown Farmer’s Market

This weeks episode includes a visit to the Midtown Farmer’s Market with my pal Frank. I talked to Monica Graham from The Animal Farm , sampled some baked nummies from The Center, and talked to the Culinary Diva herself, Monica Pope, who helped to dispell some myths about how the farmer’s market began.

Also in this episode, podsafe music from Climber and Sweet Billy Pilgrim, two of my current obsessions.

In my hurry to get this show done, I neglected to mention my new friend Scott Mindeaux who was kind enough to help me get lots of stuff worked out last week when I was having a hissyfit over at qPodder trying to get my show posted and my feed straightened out. Check out his show, he does a weather forecast for all of his listeners, I thought that was just cool as shit!

Until next week!

MikeyPod 2 | Artist Roberto Cervantes

WOW! It was a pain in the ass to get this thing posted, but at last, here it is!

This week I interviewed my pal Roberto Cervantes, a Houston based artist, builder of furniture, painter of murals, animator and all around bad-ass. We decided to let him be DJ so he picked some of his current favorite songs to share with us. This show is longer than usual (usual?? this is only the second episode) but with the songs inside, I figured, what the hell?

Featured music:

  • The Lake-Antony and the Johnsons from The Lake EP
  • O’oh-Yoko Ono from OnoBox (disc 6)
  • Till it’s Time for You to Go- Cleo Laine (Buffy Sainte-Marie cover) from At Her Finest
