Podcast Crashing

Good morning, peoples! I hope you all had a good weekend! I know mine was pretty good, what with the family being around, even though it was a bit cold and wet so we couldn’t go out and do much. It was a normal weekend, doing a lot of the same stuff, with grocery shopping, Disney films with the Geekling, spending time with my folks, and just general relaxation.
I did have one unique experience on Saturday evening that was really cool, though, that did rather break the norm.
In case you don’t know, I love the Twitter. It’s mindless, it’s fun, it’s 140 characters or less of pure enjoyment most of the time. I’ve stumbled into a network of local people who are fun and a joy to mess with, and I think they feel the same because I haven’t been blocked or reported for spam yet.
One of those people is on my list from Friday, the “regional celebrity” known as @BgKahuna. This man is very influential around Indianapolis in both the subjects of Unicorns and Kitten Pictures. He is famous in at least 3 zip codes, and can tell you how to keep your Personal Brand strong in his sleep.
And he mainly exists in cyberspace. At least, as far as this blog is concerned, because it’s his online identity to put out there, not mine!
On Saturday, he posted up that he was doing a podcast, and so we threw back and forth on that for a bit, then I thought nothing of it. Then, later that evening, after a full afternoon of playing catch with my daughter while watching Disney films , my phone told me I had a message on Twitter. It was the Kahuna saying that the podcast was going to be at a certain location, and feel free to crash it.
So, I did what any sane adult would do on a Saturday night. I drove over and crashed it.
I think the crashing went off well, but I’m not going to ruin it just in case that podcast ever gets released. I would like to say, though, that what was supposed to be a quick crash of a 30 minute podcast turned into 3 ½ hours of shooting the bull with a couple of great, funny guys, most of it on the mic. Recording with Josh and the Kahuna was a lot of fun, and I’m glad that they asked me to stick around. It’s something that I hope I can do again soon, but it’s their game, I was just lucky enough to play.
I don’t know the name of the podcast, when or where they’re releasing it, or if it even survived the recording process. If it did, I’ll post up where it is. If it didn’t, then I’ll describe what happened. Until then, no spoilers.
Either way, it was a great experience.
Thanks, guys.
