The 6.5 Questions
1. How long have you been podcasting?
Almost since Podcasting began! Umm...October 10, 2004 :-)
2. How many shows have you done?
A total of 12, as well as occasional hosting duties for Indiefeed.
3. How has your quality/performance changed since your first show?
There is a good reason that only episodes 4-12 are archived...My first show was basically an experiment. Ok let's be honest: they sucked. I took a "let's see what unfolds" attitude, with no real format or idea if/how Insomnia Radio would evolve. Since episode 6, I've absorbed tips and critiques from the podcasting community, and found just the right direction to steer the show towards. As far as quality, I podcast @ 128k Stereo, and though the filesizes are large, the music deserves it.
4. What podcasts do you listen to and which are your favorites?
MY Podsquad is: IndieFeed, RadioZoom, Mathcaddy Radio (back from the dead!), Eric Rice, iPodio, In Over Your Head, Jimmy Jett's Podcast About Nothing, Radio Clash, Not Work Safe Radio, Bob & AJ, Tracks up the Tree, The Scout.net, and the $250 Million Radio Show.
5. Tell us about your show and who should be listening to it?
Anyone with a passion for music and a distaste for mainstream radio. Ultimately, the show aims to be a platform for promoting unsigned and lesser known indie bands. Radio has generally failed to deliver the promise of great new music. My goal is to give my listeners a fresh dose on a weekly basis.
6. What is your background (especially if relevant to your podcast)?
I have absolutely zero broadcasting experience. Here's the story in shortform: I bought an iPod. Sitting down to google for some 3rd party software, I came across the word "podcasting" with a link back to Adam Curry's weblog. I realized instantly that I HAD to do this. 24 hours later I met up with ilk from Not Work Safe Radio who taught me how to hand code the RSS and offered to host the mp3 files for me. In turn, that experience is what fueled my desire to continue. A community that lifted me off the ground and helped start the engines.
6.5 Is there anything else your listeners should know about you, your show, etc?
Go subscribe to IndieFeed. There are great things in store there...

Last but certainly not least, it's all about the 'podience.' Thanks for listening you guys. This show is, ultimately, for you...
