The Ken and Squip Show

Podcasting has been getting quite a bit of attention lately, but I haven't had much time to listen or learn about it. For those not already in the know, podcasting is something like home-made radio, in the same way that blogging is home-made journalism. People create podcasts, which can then be downloaded and listened to on your iPod (hence the name) or other .mp3 player.

Before going on vacation I downloaded several editions of the Ken and Squip Show. They describe themselves thusly:

The Ken and Squip Show, created in October of 2004, is a bicoastal comedy podcast featuring Kenster J and Cindy C. (aka 'squipper' or 'squip'.) Seat-of-the-pants banter is the name of the game for our audio program. It's news, gossip, technology, new music and sex -- a cornucopia of some, all, or none of the those.

Squip is also the proprieter of Dusting My Brain, long-time resident of my sidebar. You may remember her as the winner of a loaf of Rocket Jones cinnamon raisin bread a while back. Since she's still around, I assume that it didn't poison her... although I haven't heard from her since then... hmmmm...

Anyway, I listed to the podcasts and I gotta tell you, I'm hooked. These two are funny as hell. Their humor is often juvenile and the entire show is definitely R-rated. In fact, Apple's iTunes has censored their title because it contains the word "intercourse"! Gotta love that.

Among the highlights was an apology from another podcaster who inadvertantly lost the link to Ken and Squip on his site without realizing it (that's the short version). When he realized what had happened, he apologized to them via his podcast, and believe me, it was the King of all apologies. I had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard.

About the only thing I would change is that Cindy should spend more time talking about her breasts. But hey, that's just me. Oh, and I deserve a shout out, just because.

So yes, I recommend downloading the Ken and Squip Show and giving it a listen. I'll be checking out other podcasts, including the Simian Syndicate, because he's earned a shot after that hilarious apology. Blue, I'm still cracking up over:

I am lower than dinosaur shit. And not poop from some giant mean-ass carnivore, but shit from some pussy plant-eating dinosaur.

That's not an exact quote, but it's close. Yo, Blue, I should get a shout out from you too. Just because.

Oh Ted, you have no idea how wonderful it was to read your post this morning. I'd had a dreadful night (nothing THAT bad, though there was a full moon last night and I can blame unpleasantries on that) and your words just - just - I'm sooooo very happy you enjoyed our little show. Thank you, thank you, thank you (shoutout to come!)

Meanwhile, I have indeed been keeping up with your blog but I've suffered from that quiet thing lately - plus being forced to use dialup while waiting for cable to come fix my broadband connection. I didn't realize I've been so rude and haven't commented here since the bread. [I think it might have something to do with the fact that I inhaled the loaf and have had trouble fitting on my chair now.] Sorry and I'll try to be better about commenting here.

Ted - thank you again -- you really made my day and it was just great of you. *hug*

p.s. Blue lives in Virginia. Just thought I'd throw that in :-)

I knew he lived in Virginia because he owns a riding lawnmower. We all do, even if we live in townhouses. The trick is, we'll do the entire neighborhood because what's the point of having a riding lawnmower if it only takes 2 minutes to cut the grass?

Mine has RATO packs on it. ;) (google it)

The Squipper sent me a note about your post and I saw it this morning. Too bad I didn't check my email before I recorded our new show this weekend or I would have rendered appropriate shout-outs in the current show, but rest assured they will reside accordingly in the next one!

Thanks for the kind words!
