Geek Dads Weekly #53 – So Lonely, Oh So Lonely

by Daniel M. Clark on December 11, 2010

In which Daniel goes again on his own. Walkin’ down the only road he’s ever known. Like a drifter, he was born to walk alone. But he’s made up his mind… he ain’t wastin’ no more time.

Whitesnake lyrics? Srsly?

It’s just me this time, as Joe is down in Atlanta packing up the rest of his house to finish the move up north to the Boston area. I decided against bringing in a co-host because as I get closer to 2011 and the launch of new podcasts, I decided that I want more time behind the mic solo. Practice makes perfect, as the saying goes. I opened the show with a bit of a podcasting lesson about the differences between solo and co-hosted recordings.

I then announced the winner of our fifth Affiliate Summit Gold Pass – John from WickedFire! I’ll be DMing him on Twitter shortly after I post this with his special registration code. Thanks for participating, John.

Speaking of Summit, I signed up for Purpose Inc’s poker tournament in Vegas on January 9th. Wish me luck. I hope to be able to do both the tourney and the ShareASale Under the Stars party.

Next up, I talked a bit about LinkedIn and why I don’t use it. My time is limited, and I have to pick and choose how I spend it, and LinkedIn just isn’t on the list right now.

Penultimately, a synopsis of the recording schedule through January. In a nutshell, it’s like this: up through December 19th, normal. December 23, 26 and 30 are up in the air depending on what my co-hosts have planned for the holidays. January 2nd should be back to normal, but then we’re in Las Vegas for Affiliate Summit. We’ll be putting out shows while we’re there, but not on our normal schedule. More on that as we get closer to the event.

Finally, there was a short bit there at the end about the differences between talk radio and podcasting. If you’re a podcaster, if you produce podcasts, don’t call your show “an internet radio show”. It’s not radio. Radio’s got nothing to do with it. It’s like going to see Avatar and calling it a play.

Thanks for listening! We’d love to hear your thoughts. Leave us a voice mail at 281-826-2112. Also, you can email us at
