Random Nerdness: Geek Fallout reached episode 100 in 2014!!!

This was the essay I wrote for Geek Fallout episode 100. Now here it is in written form for you to read. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!!

For me it all started with the Random Nerdness Podcast. The first episode of RN debuted October 16th, 2012. I had been inspired to create my own podcast for The Atomic Geeks Podcast Network based on my blog after having appeared on the ‘Nerd Lunch’ podcast as a fourth chair guest. I had no experience with editing a podcast but as it happens my brother-in-law Sebastian and my sister Brianna had just moved back to Canada from Sweden, and Seb had actually gone to school for sound engineering.

All Good Things Come To A End…

So on July 3, 2014 I posted about the podcast Random Nerdness ending (Post Here). But something happened and we kicked it off for another season! Sadly it seems that this will be it’s last season as a whole :(. The reason is money and space. What is happening tho! Is that all planned podcast eps are going to mixed with the Geek Fallout Podcast. Basically making an all in one podcast. Here is a Statement From the Chris Lockhart, the creator of these podcasts:

Hello everyone, this is your old pal Chris Lockhart with some new news in regards to the podcasts going forward. I am going ahead and cancelling the Random Nerdness podcast. For the money I am paying for it and for the listeners that actually tune in it’s just not worth continuing. However that does not mean that we have to cancel any plans for RN episodes being prepared. I have 3 episodes planned and I know Jason has some ‘Stargate’ episodes planned. Now those episodes will be done as back-up episodes of ‘Geek Fallout’. As you know sometimes we run into technical difficulties and issues with scheduling from time to time. On those instances we cannot sometimes get a new episode of Geek Fallout out, now these “back-up” episodes can fill those gaps. This way we can ensure that we put out an episode each and every week. And the invitation I extended to everyone to create and Host your own podcast episode that we had been doing on RN still stands. So if you have an idea for an episode that you really want to do that would fall outside our regular GF podcast format feel free to record it (and make sure you have an editor lined up to record and edit). We will put it in the back-up episodes folder and use it when needed or use it sooner if you like.

We have 300MB of monthly storage at Podbean which means if our regular weekly episodes fall short of the 300MB and we have room for another episode we can insert it in. So some weeks we may have 2 episodes of GF that are released. Going forward “new” episodes of GF will be released on Mondays. So that being said when we listen to an episode of GF it will be a week old. The reason for this is to give Chris Gaida and Jason Roberts time to edit without being rushed or interfering with their personal lives. This will mean our “news” may be outdated but that’s ok. We’re not so much about the news aspect but rather more about the discussion about said news. Chris and Jason will forward their edited episodes to me via our Dropbox account and I’ll put them up on Mondays. And on a personal note I have decided to take an even further step back from being on Geek Fallout.

Between Hosting and editing GFCBEps and Trek1701 and (trying) to write a book, and with family obligations, and starting a ‘Faith’ based podcast and other such stuff I need to free up some time. I can certainly drop in from time to time when needed (or if I’m bored and wanting to talk to my GF buddies), but between the number of podcasters we already have and the fine job that Jason and Chris are doing at editing I think it’s safe for me to step back at this time. I will continue to be the overall Executive Producer and I will continue with the quarterly newsletters.

If you have any questions or concerns please let me know. Thank you all for the great job you are doing and helping to make RN/GF Podcast Productions a true podcasting family!

– Chris”
I fully understand this move and looking forward to what is to come 🙂

2014 In Review For Nerdy Life Of Mine

Podcast News Updates: Random Nerdness Is Ending, Geek Fallout Will Continue

RNlogo1701

So the other day I got the heads up from Chris that he is ending Random Nerdness Podcast. All tho it is sad to see it go, it’s fully understandable on the reason why.  Here is what he said:

“Hello everyone. It is with a sad heart that I am announcing the end of the Random Nerdness Podcast. It’s just getting to be too much juggling 4 podcasts. I am going to be twaeking the July schedule a bit to help me, but the tweak will not affect our episodes being recorded next week. I’ll have the ‘tweaked’ July schedule AND the August schedule done this weekend. I’ll probably start working on them this Friday night. (I am planning on recording the 2 monthly episodes we do of GF The Comic Book Episodes in one night every month. We do the same thing over at Trek1701. I’ll also be tweaking the comic book episodes format a bit making it less ‘news’ more discussion. Geek Fallout will continue to be a weekly podcast. Anyway if you have any questions or concerns let me know. Thanks!”

Again I can see how crazy things might get after awhile with 4 podcasts and being a family man at the same time. It will be missed, but who knows what the future holds. Geek Fallout, Geek Fallout The Comic Book Episodes and Trek1701 will carry on. We’ll be making more updates as times go on. Thank you all for the support!!
