I have a problem

Actually I have a couple of problems. The first is that whenever I think of something to write about comics, I think "oo, I should save that for the podcast." Hence a string of content-free posts about the podcast. Podcast, podcast, podcast. This is the Jan Brady of blogs, and I need to have a Very Special Post in which I explain that sometimes mommy and daddy need to have a discussion about comic books that is recorded with audio equipment, but that doesn't mean we don't love it very very much.

The second is that Aaron and I are having preposterous amounts of fun doing the show, and I really really want people to hear it. And some people are hearing it, and being very nice about it, but I want more. More more more. It's hard out here in the online comics community for a pimp. So if you have any ideas for zany promotional initiatives, please share. I want people to say "have you listened to that podcast with that funny dude and his crazy bitch wife? It's OUT OF ITS MIND."

Anyway, these are my current conundra (Blogger spell check wants me to write "conundrums," but I say go to hell red-dotted line). Maybe tomorrow I'll annotate Hellcat or something.

I USED to hold a bit of influence but not anymore i'm afraid - otheriwse id be promoting you for sure.
All i can suggest is to keep doing what you;re doing and eventually word of mouth will kick in. That or kidnap Josh and take over his chair for an episode of ifanboy...

Hi Evie,
These are superfun! Any idea how to download this to my ipod so I can listen while on campus?
(I am podcast-ignorant, you understand).
Ciao,
Amy

Thanks guys! Amy, there are several ways to get it to the iPod--the first is to download the podcast from iTunes (there's a link to the iTunes page in the sidebar under "Feed Me," or in the post below). Then you just transfer it to your iPod the way you transfer anything from iTunes (I assume if you have an iPod you use iTunes). If you downloaded the episode directly to your computer from this blog, just transfer it from wherever it is on your computer to your iPod the way you would a song. But really, the short answer is, a podcast is just an mp3, so just do whatever you do with a song :).

Hi Evie,
Got it! Remember, I am a Victorianist. Sometimes I am so caught up in pre-1900 literature, technology baffles me (I *know* I have an ipod, but I am not quite sure just *exactly* how to use it).
Thanks for the interesting walking material! I look forward to listening.
Ciao,
Amy
