Guest Appearance on ‘The Functional Nerds’

Last week, I had the pleasure of spending a few minutes chatting with John Anealio and Patrick Hester of The Functional Nerds podcast. It was a lot of fun, and they were very gracious hosts. John has been a guest on The Geek Side of Life, and I’d like to have Patrick on the show sometime soon.

Hope you enjoy!

Episode #8 — Interview With Rubiee from Pandora Celtica

I am tickled pink about this episode because I got to interview Rubiee, one of the singers in my favorite Celtic music band, Pandora Celtica. I first heard them at Dragon*Con 2010, and they’ve been on my iPod ever since. We talk about their music, the recently-concluded Kickstarter campaign, stories behind some of the songs, what their recording sessions are like, and their upcoming schedule of appearances.

During the course of the interview, you will hear me mention a song that I thought was titled Admiral Taylor. Rubiee suggested that I meant General Taylor, a song from their first CD. Actually, the song I was referring to is Admiral Nelson, a clip of which you will hear in the interview. It is a well-prepared podcaster who gets song titles right.

In addition to the song clips and musical discussion, we touched on:

Episode #5 — The Same Old Story About P0rnbots, Cattle Breeding and Trading Cards

Inspiration can come from anywhere. In the case of this week’s story, it came from a conversation I eavesdropped on between two friends on Twitter. This is one of my original stories, titled The Same Old Story About P0rnbots, Cattle Breeding and Trading Cards. If you wonder what those three subjects could possibly have to do with each other, you’ll just have to listen to the story!

I’d love to hear what you think! Leave your thoughts in the comments.
