Got Lost?

October 1st, 2005

As I mentioned in the last show, we’re taking a break this week. Actually, it’s our ‘fourth week hiatus,’ anyway, but it’s just as well, as I’m talked out after putting together “The Transmission,” our spinoff podcast about ABC’s hit television series, “Lost.” If you absolutely must hear my wife’s sexy voice, that’s the place to find it right now!

HiUP #25 – Sweet Sounds

September 18th, 2005

Show number twenty-five is a double music feature, with artists from Canada and California sharing their unique sounds. Local news touches again on gas prices, as well as hurricanes brewing in the Eastern Pacific, Hawaii unemployment figures, the Akaka Bill, and the Eagles. Jen and I recall the special advance screening of the season premiere of “Lost” in Waikiki, then recap some favorite movies. A familiar voice shares her favorite Hawaii memory, and a couple of local podcasters get major props.

HiUP #23 – Brothers

September 4th, 2005

Show twenty-three opens with a reminder of how the world can change in an instant, and an invitation to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina by visiting RedCross.org or calling 1-800-HELP-NOW. The news round-up touches on the local link to the disaster, the amplified effects it will have on local gas prices, the supposed boost in the size of local paychecks, and a belated congratulations to the Ewa Beach boys and their big Little League win. Jen returns with more movie talk, and I tell you about two great new local podcasts. A listener comment wraps things up.

Rest

August 26th, 2005

No show this week, folks. No bad stuff, just taking a break. As I think I’ve mentioned in previous shows, while sometimes it’s fate that has other plans for me, I plan on pausing every fourth week or so just to recharge, and to tinker with other things (like my videoblog). Oh, and yeah, there’s that whole “family” thing, too.

Maybe I’ll work on the all-important “podcast promo” instead, or hunt down a few more local musicians to feature. If you’ve any thoughts on either count, speak up!

HiUP #22 – Tax Hacks

August 19th, 2005

Show twenty-two tackles teachers, taxes, and TV DVDs. A lush Hawaiian tune is featured, as is movie talk with the wife. We hear a few more island memories from HawaiiUP listeners, and give away another prize. Finally some upcoming podcasting events are previewed. Much to my surprise, it’s another 40-minute monster!

HiUP #20 – Pithless
