In Pod We Trust

I want to take a brief pause to marvel at the 21st century phenomenon that is the podcast. Every week I sit in my PJs in LA and talk into my computer, Georgia and Jane do the same in New York, and puppetmaster Michael B engineers the whole shebang from his underground lair somewhere in the environs of Pittsburgh, PA. Through a peculiar alchemy involving iChat, Garageband and various hallucinogens, the four of us somehow conjure up our very own podcast week after week and set it adrift into the internet ether (okay, iTunes). Why, you ask? Umm...I dunno, it seemed like a cool thing to do. We were trying to think of fun ways to reach new RED DOORS fans, and it was either this or streaking through lower Manhattan with "RED DOORS Opens Sept. 8th!" painted on our posteriors.

Blogging, vlogging, MySpace-ing, reality television - it all fulfills some basic human need to be seen and heard. The proliferation of these activities has led me to the inevitable conclusion: soon, there will be no more audience. We will no longer be spectators or even voyeurs, just a vast pool of performers, orators, and bloviators engaged in an endless cultural dialogue made an order of magnitude more meta with each new technological tangent. I mean, here I am blogging about our podcasts - yikes, I think I just blew my own mind. Or was that a braingasm? I guess if you have to ask...

So yeah, we're jumping on the podcast wagon. Solipsistic? Maybe. Narcissistic? Definitely. Entertaining? I certainly hope so. If you want to let us know what you think, feel free to ping us on MySpace - email is soooo 2004...

Song du jour: "Can I Stay" from Ray LaMontagne's new album. Real men rock out with string quartets.
