Contribute to hurricane relief

First and foremost, please consider sending a donation to charities providing relief to the victims of Hurricane Katrina. You can donate to The American Red Cross, or check out Charity Navigator for links to other organizations that are working in Louisiana and Mississippi.
Not in much of a mood to do a show today, especially show 50. Back soon.


Back to the usual drivel

Today, there's an update on my week, lots of listener mail, and an extended remodeling update from me and The Fabulous Frank.

The Crawford report

This show chronicles my trip to Crawford Texas to observe and be a part of Cindy Sheehan's vigil near president Bush's ranch. I interview a few people, and discuss the environment in Crawford. Yes, dear friends, this is a political show. Some of you will be inspired. A few of you will not. If you don't want to hear the opinions of people who object to the way the Bush administration has run the war, catch the next show. I'll be back soon with a "regular" podcast. I will point out, however, that unlike most of what you see on cable news, this podcast is not an argument or a debate between ill-mannered media bullies. It's the story of how real people who love their country choose to communicate.

River dance

The return of tech talk on the show, including new iRiver models and why better is not always better when it comes to Skype. Also, the remodeling update returns.


The most laid back show ever

#46 is a quick podcast from the iRiver. This is my brain on pain meds. If you think this show is boring, please stick around for the next one. Chances are good that I will be sitting up to record it.


Counting up to show 50

The next Shelly's Podcast will be #46. My busy little brain has begun to work on the problem of how to make Show #50 a spectacular event, but one that is not self-indulgent. Your thoughts?


Material girl

I turn my entire life into show material for you, my beloved audience.

Frank cast

On today's show, the Fabulous Frank joins me for a walk.



If you vote for me I'll have more votes

It's the first of the month and time for all podcasters to ask their audiences for a little love at Podcast Alley. You can vote for Shelly's Podcast using the Vote link on the left nav bar.

To add value to my shameless request for your votes, here are the shows I'll be voting for this month. The links below go directly to each show's voting page.

Hey, could someone make me a script that would cast all my votes at the same time? I would like to enter the names of all my favorite shows once, then run the script each month to cast the votes. The input could be an OPML of my subscription file, but with the option to mark a subset of the list for voting.

Yeah. Someone needs to work on this for me.

Chewing sheet rock

Here's a very short remodeling update. I'm planning a proper show for later in the week.
