In this week's show:
Episode Three is posted, after much delay, and then a last minute disaster. After laboriously editing my interview with the Marriage Equality activist Equality California, Stuart Gaffney earlier this week, I found when I came back to the file later that somehow when i saved it, along with other elements of the show (the intro, the music, etc), the actual interview played really fast, as in "chipmunk voice." Try as I might, I could un-Chipmunk the interview, so then I went back to re-ediit the interview, which consumed about two hours of my saturday nite, only to have Audacity (the sound editing software) totally crash before I'd saved the interview. I thought I was going to have a freaking stroke right then and there, I was so enraged. Instead, I just through together what I did have, which was a couple of great letters from listeners, and some of my own comments related to those letters, and some fun music.
So, it's not exactly what I'd hoped it would be, but it's better than nothing, and it does serve to demostrate that there is definitely a learning curve to this podcasting thing.
One important innovation I brought to the show this week, I've started a yahoo group, as another way that we can start get some discussion started among this community of sexy queers that we are forming together. So, please go check out the yahoo group, and when you subscribe to it, be sure to send me a shout out, telling me a little about yourself, such as what city your in, how you heard about QSW and maybe a topic you'd like to hear addressed on the show. Just click this link to visit the QSWeekly YahooGroup.
This week's closing music is performed by Casey Abrams . It's a catchy little tune called "Nobody's Song." Available at Podsafe Audio.
In upcoming episodes, you can keep your eyes peeled for the freshly re-edited Stuart Gaffney intervieW. Keep your fingers crossed my software will cooperate this time!!
Other topics I'm working on for you... ever look at those ads in the back of the gay rags for studly "full body" massage, with release, or straight-up hustler guys, rent-boys and escorts. I'll be interviewing some local queer sex workers for an insiders look at queer people involved in the world's oldeset profession, Inside the Queer Sex Trade, coming to the QSW in the coming weeks.
Also in the works, an interview with a lesbian Buddhist lay leader who will kick off new recurring segment called, "The Flesh and The Spirit," in which queer people talk about the connections between their spirituality and their sexual selves. Interseting stuff!! So keep coming back... And don't forget to drop me a line and say hello!
Thanks again, for checking our QSW: Episode Three!
Remember, whatever your flavor of crazy maybe, it's all good here at Queer Sex Weekly!!
peace & love,
