Happy Halloween!

We've just posted Episode VIII- Our Halloween episode. Greg even got attacked by a vicious house spider during the taping of the show!

We talk about Andy's trip to Comicon in San Diego and visit to the Winchester house in San Jose. Also, a quick follow up to the North Carolina "Sewer Monster", and a funny and strange story of a fishing boat crew that lands a big, ugly and angry giant sea eel with a mouth full of sharp teeth!

Also, we talk about the strange idea that European Physicists are trying to create particles that don't want to exist.

As usual, we'd like any feedback you have for us- anything from technical details to story idea.

Episode VII

Show of hands, how many of you would like to see me getting my butt kicked? Well, how about a couple of pictures of it? How about an interview with the guy who did it? Your dreams have come true. I do a two part interview with Eugene Robinson, author of "Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Ass Kicking But Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked For Asking" and lead singer of Oxbow.

Caveat: I flew solo on this one as Greg was away taking care of some family business. Also, I had some technical difficulties with my mic and some feedback of my audio on Skype. I don't think it's too bad and Eugene comes through clear. He's the interesting part of it anyway.

Out 6th Show!

We've just recorded our 6th show! This one is shorter than usual, about 45 minutes long. It's just Andy & Me shooting the breeze and talking about a few interesting stories:

* The very unusual story of Brooke Greenberg, the little girl who doesn't age
* A wallet, lost in Oregon in 1946 is returned to it's owner after 63 years!
* Another lost wallet story, this one lost in NYC in 1982 and returned after 27 years
* The internet sensation, the North Carolina Sewer Monster (what RCB podcast would be complete without a monster story??)

Looks like something from an old episode of Star Trek, huh?

Episode V

After some followups to stories we talked about in the last podcast we jump right in to our interview. Greg and I interview a honest-to-goodness PHD: geneticist Dr. Jeanette Hyer of the University of California San Francisco. A number of subjects are covered including government funding, the promise and danger of biotechnology, popular misconceptions about genetics, and more. 

Don't think that because we've interviewed a scientist that we're all professional and stuff though. Greg's phone rings a couple times (popular guy) and, although she tried to hide from her family, Jeanette's kids track her down and interrupt her while she's on the phone with us. Man, I remember doing that as a kid. Sorry mom.

Episode IV Is Up!

No interviews in this episode, but we cover a few interesting and different topics:

* Montauk Monster Follow Up
* Bill Gates Releases Mosquitos at a Conference
* "Biohackers"
* Australian SETI Team Finds Possible Sign of Intelligence
* "Urban Phantom" Visits Seattle
* The Funny Stuff That Shows Up on Greg's Street

I (Greg) finally bought a decent microphone, so this is our best-sounding podcast so far!

As always, feel free to contact us for advice or to suggest a topic.


The "Urban Phantom" may look something like this:

Episode III

If we were dating this podcast this would be the date where the podcast would have to put out. We are at number 3!

In this episode Greg and I have our first political exchange about the whole tea party phenomenon. Greg went to a couple locally and I just sat around and offered my criticism. We also talked about cancer fighting video games, phantom limbs, and the weirdness around Montauk, Long Island. I think my favorite part is the interview with my mom at the end of the show. She relates a strange story from before I was born, and, no, I'm not an alien baby.

Our apologies for the heavy breathing sounds emanating from Greg's cheapo mike. He sounds a bit like Darth Vader's geeky younger brother. We're getting him a better mike for the next show.


Update (Greg)- A pic of the Montauk Monster:

Episode II

Hi All,

In Episode II, we conduct our first interview! We interview my uncle, Eric Miller, who is the author of Passion for Murder the Homicidal Deeds of Dr. Sigmund Freud. We start the episode with a brief discussion of Wil Wheaton's talk at the 2009 Seattle Comicom, and the bulk of the Episode is taken up by the interview.

Please excuse the quirks in this audio file (mp3)... During the interview, Andy and I can only be heard on one channel, while Eric is on both. Andy is looking into fixing it. Additionally, a most annoying "thump" is heard when Andy speaks (ask him about it).

Thanks for listening!
