Hotstove Virgin No More

Thanks to Greg Staples, Jason Cherniak and James Bow for including me in this weeks Bloggers Hotstove.

So wander over and have a listen, it was a good discussion about last weeks events. Let me know what you think and feel free, over the course of this week, to let me know what you would like discussed next week.

And thanks to Idealist Pragmatist for recommending me.

Listened to you on Bloggers Hotstove. Good job. It was even interesting.

Ditto - very good - kudos to all involved. I love what is happening in the new media.

Thanks herbinator. Glad you liked it. I'm tentatively scheduled to be back on next week, so listen or give me any pointers until then.

I haven't listened to it yet, but I'm so glad you did this. I'm a big fan of the Hotstove, and you're the perfect replacement for Greg Bester.

Mike, I'm glad you participated, and hope you continue to. :)

deanna,

Thanks. I have at least one more week on the back burner...


IP,

Well now I sure have big shoes to fill. No pressure.

;-)

I could not imagine replacing Greg Bester, but I'll certainly give my best while I'm on.

Thanks for the vote of confidence.

I'm pleased to hear you on there , Mike. I thought the show was sorely lacking an NDP point of view after Greg left... I think you'll do just fine.

It'd be nice to get a Green Blogger on there too, I think.

Thanks Scott. I'm not sure how my fellow Blogging Dippers will think I represented them, sicne I disagree with a pretty big policy, but I'll keep trying.

I've been asked by Greg at some point if I'd like to "appear" on it. I'm mulling that answer over... I tend to view myself as expressing my thoughts better in writing then talking.

Great job by all. I will say you do have the "voice" for it, not to mention you know your stuff. You may yet convince me to vote NDP. Okay that may be a stretch...lol

However if you ever became leader of the party you would get my vote!

Thanks Tim. From '86 to '88 I was in Carleton University's School of Journalism with people like CTV's Paula Newton (I knew her as Paula Bozzo) and CBC's Jacque Poitras, to name a few. Back then 'podcasts" meant editing your radio program with a razor blade and scotch tape.


And I have far too many skeletons in my closet to run for office.

Oh and my wife is coinually surprised by the ammount of "stuff" that is in my head, yet I can't remember where I put my car keys.

;)

It was fun though and brought me back.

Mike,

Yeah, that was a damn fine Hotstove!

Oh, and I'm pretty sure that you're supposed to be representing yourself, not your party. I certainly didn't worry about toeing the party line when I was on it. It's actually when various guests start trying to "get out the party message" that I start to find the Hotstove annoying. I mean, it's supposed to sound like four friends chatting over a beer!

James Bow is an on-again, off-again Green Party supporter. And please, no quotas!

They should have a call in whereby listeners can grill the snot out of you guys and really put you on the 'hotstove' so to speak. Now that I'd pay to hear! hahahah

Well, we're limited by our resources. Skype itself can only handle four callers at once, and with me playing the non-partisan voter card, and Greg being the moderator, one of the parties ends up losing out each week. And as for a call-in, that requires us to have a number that somebody could call. Greg makes the calls himself to bring us into the conversation.

 
At 8:50 AM, Blogger Mike said...

James it right, jeff, its a technical limitation of how we do the Hotstove. I do like your idea though. I wonder if there is technology out there that lets one do a "talk radio" type show.

Greg could become the Rush Limbaugh of the north.

;)

Ok, maybe Phil Donahue... :-)

Just found out about this today from Tim, good job on your answers and comments. Are you sure you don't wanna come work for our team?

With this crowd, it would be more like Jerry Springer wouldn't it?
