Radio Free Burrito Archives: Episode Eight

ShellymortonlogoToday, it's a brief political rant (you have been warned), then it's all questions and answers, no stupid meta-talk about what I'm going to do, just getting down to it and having a good time.

A lot of people have asked if I can change the numbering of the episodes; I did that on this one. It's called 008.RadioFreeBurrito. I hope that works for ya.

Show Notes:

Thanks for listening. I hope you enjoy it.

Update: Your friendly local .torrent creator, Brian shook his magic tree and look what fell out:

High (orig):

Low (mono, VBR bit rate range 0-24, 13 MB):

Mirror for the Low..

This file is one of the biggest yet, so use the mirrors and seed the .torrent, if you can. Thanks, Brian!

Radio Free Burrito Archives: Episode Seven

MarclogoWell, here's episode seven. I went over ten minutes, but I think that's okay. This episode focuses on two things: how the ten minute challenge is going, and how the blog in general is going. Warning: I'm feeling really unhappy right now, and I talk about that, too.

Radio Free Burrito Archives: Episode Six

wil, · Categories: Books, RFB Archives

TowerlogoHere is Radio Free Burrito Episode Six, as the great ten-minutes-per day experiment moves on to day two. I've already figured out that ten minutes is just not enough time for a long-winded, tangent-prone guy like myself, so I don't know if trading off manageable time for more content is really worth it. We'll find out in a few days, I guess.

Thank you so much to everyone who has sent in logos! Holy crap, you are a talented bunch of people. I'm going to try on lots of different ones this week, send them all out on dates with the Crushinator, and figure out which logo will be permanent via a reality tv show in the coming weeks. If you haven't sent your logo idea in, please don't feel like you missed the boat; I'd still love to see what you guys come up with, and there's a very good chance I'll be able to use more than one logo for different things.

Show Notes:

Anyway, here it is. Your feedback is always appreciated, and thanks for listening.

Radio Free Burrito Archives: Episode Five

wil, · Categories: Music, RFB Archives

15118203_32335060cf_missued myself a challenge a few weeks ago: do one ten-minute podcast a day for a week. Then I went and got sick, and wasn't in any shape to do begin the challenge . . . until tonight.

I thought that it would be very manageable to commit ten minutes per day to do a show, but don't know if I like the format; ten minutes is hardly enough time to get started, let alone do an entire show, so I will thank in advance those of you who endure this little experiment with me over the next few days. I am nearly positive that by the end of the week, I'll be back to 37 minutes at a time.

Oh, and before I get into the show notes: does someone want to do a Radio Free Burrito logo? I am thinking something simple that is inspired by the old RKO logo (a radio tower on top of the earth) or something similar like that. I'm a big fan of simple, 1940s-looking radio design, if you know what I'm talking about.

If any of you guys with crazy Photoshop or GIMP skills want to send me something, I'd love to see it. If I pick your design, I'll give you credit by name and with a link to your website or blog, and I'll send you an autographed book. I should probably put in some legal language, like, uh, anything you send me becomes my property, and I can do whatever I want with it, even put it into a shotgun wedding with the Crushinator. You can put "Wil Wheaton's Radio Free Burrito" and use the tagline ". . . an interesting podcast" if you want.

Here are a few show notes for this very brief episode:

Okay, that's it for today. I hope you enjoy the abbreviated Radio Free Burrito. Thanks for listening.

Update – Thank to to everyone who sent in (or linked to) logos. There are so many cool logos, I will probably use several of them this week before I settle on an "official" RFB logo. I appreciate your time and creative efforts, everyone!
