My Electric Sky podcast didn’t hit stride until I had an epiphany.
Today, December 1, 2010 is the great Canadian National Day of Podcasting — an excuse for Canadian podcasters to shake the dust off their long dormant podcasts for a single day reunion of sorts. Participation rates so far have been great. You can follow which shows have joined the event by following the comments on […]
People who know me well will be surprised to know that I attended The Leadership Summit 2009. It’s organized by The Willow Creek Community Church, a 7,200 seat Evangelical Christian church in Chicago and this year was broadcast via satellite link to 144 sites around North America. I attended at the Cedarview Alliance Church in […]
My Remembrance Day tribute was released in November 2005. It remains one of the most emotionally powerful shows I’ve ever produced. In this commentary I talk being fearless in gathering streeters, scraping ceremonial coverage from the radio, getting permission to use music by Bryan Adams and The Duhks, and making audio elements fit together tightly […]
In order to make some space available for some personal projects, I have decided to put Electric Sky on hiatus. The site (including a recent wave of new shows) and RSS feed will remain online and fully functional.
As many people have pointed out, it has been far too long since I’ve published regular episodes of Electric Sky. I won’t defend the hiatus except to say that it was anything but intentional. I have a few shows recorded that I have to produce. Expect something in the coming weeks.
While most of my back catalog of Electric Sky podcasts make me cringe because of quality issues relating to either me or the audio production (or both), I’m particularly proud of an episode I produced two years ago today: A tribute to Remembrance Day. So, even though it’s a bit cheap to re-release something from […]
As an interviewer, it’s always exciting when a guest delivers great answers and insight. As a producer, it makes the task of streamlining the interview to fit a specific format extremely difficult; even stressful. Miles Copeland, former manager of The Police, was an amazing guest. I published our interview on the Electric Sky podcast site […]
In March 2006, I took a day off of work to spent time with the residents of Harvest House, a recovery program based in Ottawa. It was an incredibly educational and emotional day. I am currently producing a thirty-minute documentary based on my experiences that day. The program will be available at Electric Sky later […]
The band I’m in is performing, tonight, as part of the festivities at the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life in Stittsville, ON. The concert will include my debut as lead vocalist on “Hide Your Love Away”. I will be performing in support of my friend Derek K. Miller, who is kicking colorectal cancer in […]
