What to know about Pokemon Go

As Holiday World’s resident geezer, I clearly remember when Pokemon first made an appearance in popular culture. Somewhere in the back of a closet shelf at home we no doubt still have piles of Pokemon collector cards and battery-drained Game Boys. Memories of cherished days with youngsters growing up.

A rainy-day podcast

After having all too much fun creating our own podcast this spring, we got a call (a tweet, actually) from Zach and Noah at the Evansville Courier & Press. It seems they have a podcast, too. Called Canvass, it’s usually filled with politics and the latest opinions about breaking news stories. But with the start…

Podcast: The one with the fast-talking New Yorker

Every time we sit down to record a new episode, it is with the determination to keep the length at less than an hour. And every time, we fail. Stephen came up with a good idea – he pulled out a portion of one of our longer discussions and will create a mini-episode for next…

“I watched your podcast”

^ Been hearing that phrase a lot lately. (Thanks for tuning in!) Until I realized I was being obnoxious and stopped, I had corrected several “viewers” to remind them that a podcast is audio only. (In a nutshell, our podcast is an online on-demand talk radio show.) Then Stephen came up with the idea to create…

Podcast premiere!

All I can say is … we hope you have a long commute. Somehow, we got it stuck in our heads that most people listen to podcasts while on their daily commute – or to liven up their treadmill experience. We thought 20-30 minutes would work just fine for a podcast episode. Maybe twice that…
