Bye, bye amazon.com

In response to Amazon’s decision (something they’ve called a “glitch” in their swift and misguided damage control campaign) to remove books about gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transsexual lifestyles from their ranking system (both adult and children’s literature), I have joined a growing number of people who have removed all of the links to books and other merchandise sold by amazon.com from their sites.

You will no longer find links to amazon.com on this site.  I encourage you to make your online purchases from an online retailer of your choice.  For books, I recommend both Powell’s Books and Chapters.

Commentary on the Remembrance Day episode

I’ve published commentary on the Remembrance Day episode on my blog site, markblevis.com. In the commentrary 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 like an elaborate puzzle.

Commentary on episodes

During the month of August, I will be recording commentary on a small selection of my own podcast productions that are near and dear to me for any of many reasons. These recordings will be published on my blog site, markblevis.com. The first of my Producer’s Commentary series was published earlier this week.

If you have a particular Electric Sky episode you’d like hear my commentary on (e.g. guest and question selection, recording process, editing decisions, production techniques, etc…), send an email (electricskypodcast@gmail.com) or call the Electric Sky Podcast listener hotline (+1.206.350.6487) and tell me which one you’d like to hear.

Stay tuned – Electric Sky will be back

In order to make time 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.

Stay tuned.  Electric Sky will be back!

You may have already noticed that I haven’t been releasing shows regularly for the last few months. I needed to forgive myself the weekly production schedule during a particularly busy spring. I plan to produce a few shows over the summer on no particular release schedule and will be back into regular production in September.

Have a great summer!

This week’s episode of Electric Sky is heavy on the editing and production side. As a result, I will be publishing this week’s episode in the evening of Monday, March 26.

Thank you for your patience.

Server and feed problems

I had some pretty severe server problems yesterday – Friday, December 8 – which resulted in all sorts of problems, most of which were resolved around 5amET today. As a result, most of my sites were down, and my feeds went crazy for a while.

My apologies for the inconvenience!
