Episode #4 Something a little different
Thu, 08 Dec 2005 13:28:23 PST
(please click on the title above to listen to the latestest episode.)
It's been along time coming, but episode #4 is here!
This episode is a little different. Instead of an interview I took a moment to share with my audience the purpose, hopes, and desires of Risepod. This is a great opportunity to listen and find out more about what Risepod truely is and the man behind it.
In this episode:
I gave mention of Warren Kelley who hosts View from the Pew Radio Podcast. http://pewpod.blogspot.com/
I give a shout out to my buddy Paul Nichols of PodcastPaul. www.podcastpaul.com (this is the guy that got me started in podcasting.)
I play an incredible song called "Glad" from an amazing musician named Pat Brown. (drop me an e-mail if you want to know how to get his CD.)
In the next episode I will interview a very dear friend of mine about her work in Ukraine. We will also hear from the very talented Andy Baker. (He has been highlighted on Podcastpaul.)
p.s. I used a lapel mic and an audio interface for the first time, so please forgive the sound level and the mono parts. I am still working out the bugs. But the sound quality is great.
What's in store for you
Sun, 23 Oct 2005 09:05:01 PDT
Hello to all my listeners and readers. I wanted to take a brief moment and apologize for taking so long on putting up another podcast. I am working on setting up the interview for the next show. I am happy to announce that on the next show I will be playing a great song by singer/songwritter Pat Brown. He is an amazing musician. I am also in the process of changing jobs myself, so my free time lately has been devoted to training for my new job. The new podcast is coming very soon, and I know it is going to be incredible.

New Podcast coming soon
Wed, 05 Oct 2005 09:57:42 PDT
Hello to all my listeners,
I have been sick with the flu for a few days, so that set me back a little. But, I did manage to do an interview with a dear friend of mine. That show should be up in the next few days. I am also tweaking the format a little by adding some indie music and a new section called turntable. Turntable is a portion of the show where the very people I am interviewing get a chance to grab the mic and interview me with any questions they have. If you have any questions you want to ask me than please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

(If you want to hear the podcast, click on the title above.)
Well it's been a long and grueling process but, it's finally here. I have now successfully created an RSS feed to this page and provided a link to my first interview. All of this from a guy who is about as computer illiterate as they come. Man, I have learned so much techie stuff in the last few weeks. Well enjoy the podcast.
P.S. I will be adding music from up and coming artists to the show in the near future.
Ciao for now,
Rss feed work.
Sat, 17 Sep 2005 21:59:24 PDT
I am right now in the midst of working out the RSS feed so that the podcasts will be downloadable. I am also in the works of learning about post production, filters, and such so that sound quality will be better. Please forgive the first few podcasts, as I knew nothing about post producing sound quality.
Podcast with Congo Missionaries
Wed, 14 Sep 2005 21:46:56 PDT
Just wanted to let everyone know that I did an interview with some missionaries to the Congo today. I should have the Podcast on the website with in the next few days. Keep your eyes and ears opened for it. Also wanted to let you know that I eventually would like to also highlight Christian musicians on the program. I will be talking to some people about that very soon.
Sick Missionary needs Prayer
Fri, 09 Sep 2005 11:47:32 PDT
Everyone I just wanted to make you aware of a special need. Here is the need directly from the missionary herself.
Dear Ministry Partners,
I wanted to send a special request out to you. I have been diagnosed with Typhoid. I've been battling it for about a week now. The first few days were horrid and then a couple of days ago I felt as if I was well enough to get back to work, only to be knocked back down again the next day, feeling as I had before. Yesterday, I didn't have the strength to sit here at the computer and write to you. Thank God that I at least have some strength today. It has been frustrating not to be able to work. I have lost 16 lbs already but praise God that I have not been dehydrated. Please pray that God would continue to heal my body, kill the bacteria that is causing this whole mess, and get me back to work!
Thank you for always prayerfully supporting us here in Durango. I'll have exciting things to tell in my newsletter next week!
Your fellow servant in Christ,
RisePod website up and running
Thu, 08 Sep 2005 22:36:43 PDT
Well, I just got www.risepod.com up and running. There is still a few quarks to work out. I know there is only one podcast on the site, but you have to start somewhere, and I have 3 potential interviews alone next week. I am still working on setting up rss feeds to the podcasts. So for now everyone will just have to listen from my site. Things are looking bright for the future.
Fri, 26 Aug 2005 00:15:17 PDT
So tired. It's about 2:30 in the morning. I am in the early stages of developing and launching a ministry for the encouragement of missionaries. I'll right more later.
