The Adult Space Child Free Podcast

The (temporarily roughly bimonthly) show is all about childfree news and social issues, as well as defending Adult Spaces from improperly socialized kids, parents, and Disneyfication. Also a glimpse into Chris\'s childfree life, currently somewhat curtail

Skepchicks, I lurve ya’s for telling it like it is.

Thu, 04 Feb 2010 23:28:26 +0000

Skepticism extends beyond used cars, religion, and diet fads. It is, essentially, having an active BS meter armed with accurate-as-we-can-manage knowledge about the world we live in, and giving a second look at everything, including our own cultural assumptions. The Skepchicks just posted an article about several of the things that make me not want to [...]

I say I’m doing this with the definition of [...]

Another interview, on another feed, on another topic…

If you head over to the Steampod podcast, I just intervied Gail Carriger, a childfree author whose first steampunk novel comes out this fall. There’s an on-page player and a download link. I can’t wait for her book to come out. Gah! Gah, I say again! The next episode of TASCF will [...]

Tree pollen season has ebbed enough to allow me to speak again. Unfortunately, that took a whole week, and this week I’ve been crashing around 2pm each day. I’m not entirely sure if I’m fighting off some lowgrade something or if I’m backsliding after the first stressor after the antivirals have well and [...]

Ye gads, I’ve been taken out by a tree!

To be more specific, no episode is going out this weekend because tree pollen counts have risen beyond my allergy medications’ abilities to cope. I have gone froggy-throated from drainage (TMI?), with a high chance of voicelessness by tomorrow. If I still can’t talk by Tuesday, I’ll put out the prerecorded PSA. [...]

Ugh. 13 hour crash post-drive was not enough. CFS specialist was bewildering blend of scientific approach, quackery-BS, and phlebotomy. # Planned to finish next TASCF at hotel, but laptop’s audio went nonfunctional. At least had dinner with friend. # @WNDRWolf Files firmly in hiding. Again, laptop… I’ll record the lines again and send them Monday. Now, aren’t [...]

My 6 weeks of rest started at 4:40 today. Let the napping begin! # @PhilippaJane I cannot wrap my brain around the last 3 words of that tweet. # Today: finish car repairs and find new dentist. Then pack for drive down to LA for specialist. Also nap. Also supervise laundry minion. # Does anyone else think [...]

This morning I had 4 days’ worth of work to do in the last 2 days. This evening, I have it down to 2.5 days’s worth to do on the last day. # Happy birthday, @MWSmedia and many happy returns… to the top 100 list on Amazon! # Making strawberry ice cream, to be followed [...]

Awake again. Time for dinner. Then fun style guide comparison and perhaps Hogfather. # @PhilippaJane It is for this reason that the AMA Manual of Style “discourages” the use of the word “billion” in medical literature. # @mightymur I was just considering the same confounding questions, only WRT the next 2 weeks. Good luck! # OK, week. [...]

Awake. Brave Men Run ordered, temporarily out/backordered already! Obviously, I reserved a backordered copy. # @mwsmedia Congratulations!! You’re sold out already, backorder only!!! Yay!! (yes, I have backorder-reserved my copy) # Face wet w/tears, I turned away from the end of the WALLE credits and saw a theatre floor littered w/cups and trays. We r [...]

My neighbors are clearly going for a new volume record for sex. What does it say about me that I want to loudly “Oh-Oh-Oh”+break into yodel? # Y’know, get a little neighborly dialog going. # @CASizemore Thank you, sir. I think they wore themselves out/were doing some kind of tantra-workshop-exhibitionism exercises. Sleepytime. # Just stopped crying [...]

Today’s work lunch went well enough. 2 work days to go, 4 work days of work to complete first… but not until Monday! Weekend time! # Cogshire, Pneumatic City, Copperopolis (real ex-mining city), Aetherville, Automata County, Shankshire… pls check your Direct Msgs, sir. # Good luck, everyone in line at Apple stores!

@tadamec I love my Sigma EX 55mm 1:2.8 DG Macro D. It’s my favorite lens out of the 5 in my bag. # @WNDRWolf I understand and second Pgholyfield’s comment. Still sucks. Good luck. # Tomorrow my work team is using my impending absence as excuse 4 lunch out on the company. I was [...]

Tweeting mad, I tell you!

Sun, 06 Jul 2008 23:56:46 +0000

While I keep up with my tribe in a non-cheery-voice-required way, I’d like to share the conversation with you guys. I’m ChrisFixedKitty on twitter and LiveJournal, so say hi! Yes, this is a test of the Twitter tools plugin for WordPress. CF

Bravewolf, you got it!

Sun, 06 Jul 2008 22:09:08 +0000

As the only response, you get your way! I’ll try some carcasting to get the intro done. I’ve been sleeping 12 hours/night plus naps this weekend, so the usual Fixed Kitty cheer is finally back! I am not currently sounding like a Zombinc. employee! (Mur L has a rockin new [...]

Slight delays and gnashing of teeth

Tue, 01 Jul 2008 04:42:57 +0000

Gah. It’s been a bad stretch, and I don’t like to record when I’m this tired and grumpy. It’s very plain in my voice, and I wouldn’t want to listen to it, so I don’t post it. I have 2 theories on why my neighbors-beneath have resumed their thumpy bass every night at 11:30 [...]

Woo Hoo! and other stuff.

Fri, 20 Jun 2008 20:40:21 +0000

First, thanks to all for info and offers of support. I’m driving down to LA to a specialty clinic next month. (the local place was a forwarded phone number… coming to my area this fall) Second, the next interview is edited. It will air in 2 halves, the first next week, then (gasp!) [...]

TASCF Ep057: Childfree Step-parents

Wed, 04 Jun 2008 01:19:10 +0000

Thanks, Happy Things, a Brave Men Run promo, and an interview with Kim, a childfree woman dating a divorced dad. Warning: we swear. On the mega-plus side, thanks to Nobilis for the lead on a local doc who deals with CFS. Next week, I have an appointment. Now let’s hope [...]

Media Files:

OK, episode 57 is coming soon…

Sun, 01 Jun 2008 20:55:17 +0000

My voice is back (again) and I’m recording the intro/outro. I expect the file to be up and posted tonight or later during the week if I have the near-constant posting problems. *sigh* I haven’t podfaded so much as kept hitting the pod snooze button. But really, it’s coming!

CFS cry for help from the podosphere.

Wed, 21 May 2008 05:59:34 +0000

OK, I give. I need help from you guys trying to get treatment. Here’s the file that I would greatly appreciate you hearing and passing along through the podosphere: I will put it into the other feed this week. Please pass it along and help if you can. Thanks.

Media Files:

OK, so only minor breaks, I think

Thu, 08 May 2008 23:29:54 +0000

The feed subscription buttons may not be working, or at least the images are gone. Back soon, once this is fixed. Swearing under breath, CF

Not dead. Just sick.

Sat, 03 May 2008 21:26:14 +0000

I’m nicknaming this one “Frogthroat Fever.” Costume Con was awesome. See May 1st at my Live Journal. Yes, I’ve been sucked into that web community thingy, but it’s not as bad as the Twitter crack. Back soon, I hope. I need to do an upgrade on WordPress, so if this breaks, please [...]

Gah! file fall down.

Tue, 08 Apr 2008 03:32:35 +0000

See the comments on the previous post. I’m working on it, but it may take a few days. I will also put up another file in ~ the next week, depending on the amount of time the fix takes. She of a thousand naps, signing out.

I recorded the Contraceptive News Chunk on Friday, but couldn’t finish the whole episode before losing my voice entirely. Hopefully next week I’ll have the next podcast up. I’m home sick today, after the fever came back briefly at work yesterday. I’m still voiceless but less out-of-it. Henry and I have had tickets [...]
