Episode 247 – I Want To Hear Your Podcast and Writing Updates

January 30th, 2020

Seanorama discusses his commitment to find new Podcasts to listen to and how he plans to do it. If you have a podcast and want a mention, send me yours and three episodes of your choice to listen to. I plan to listen to 2-3 new podcasts a week. The Traffic is particularly horrible in this episode.

He also offers an editing update on his book: changes have happened to how and when he works. He discusses flow, establishing the setting, build-up, building intrigue and suspense. He also talks about the Twitter movement for and against editors and releasing first drafts.

Episode 244 – Self Checkout, Costing Jobs or Saving You Money

January 20th, 2020

Seanorama and FastFretFingers chat about self checkouts and bagging your own groceries. Does having self checkout save you--- the consumer--- money, or simply put people out of work? How does Costco fit into this with designated cashiers and employees that pack your shopping cart? The second half discusses Ikea, the Swedish phenomenon and their checkout process and their other innovations. And in another bit, the both talk about Canada’s conversion to the Metric system. And finally, Seanorama talks about his impending arrest.

Teases: The boys offer a hint for an upcoming episode about the Mandalorean and Star Wars and a tease for a guest spot on someone else’s shows. And a shoutout to James Beaver (@BeaverDoes) and Roger Boyer (@kojbfilms) for an amazing episode of Beaver Does Movies.

All of this was recorded during a cold spell in Winnipeg. They slip in winter talk, shovelling driveways, and slippery streets.

Episode 241 – Spider-Man

January 10th, 2020

As always, recorded live and in the raw (sorry about the quality on this one). Seanorama talks history with Spider-Man. What is it about the character that makes him remain so popular almost 60 years later? This brings up talk of bullies and jocks, the relatability of Peter Parker, and the life lessons he gave me. He also talks about Spider-Man on the small and large screen including all its iterations from the 60’s cartoon, to Nicholas Hammond’s live action version, to the 90’s Spider-Man cartoon, leading up to why we were lucky enough to get Sam Raimi’s 2002 Spider-Man.

He also addresses WHY “comic-book” movies like Spider-Man ARE cinema and are so important to the world and WHY they changed the game, probably more so than those other “real” cinematic films.

Here is Marvel’s page on him: https://www.marvel.com/characters/spider-man-peter-parker
