Diving Twitchward

October 24, 2018 Leave a comment

In today’s podcast I talk about my recent leap into the media phenomenon that is Twitch streaming. I discuss some of the things I find interesting about the platform and how it’s affected my gaming habits.

I Am Not Dead

MoreEyesA quick update to let you know I’m still among the living and to watch for more content soon!

EDITIf anyone is in any doubt about the subject of this post in future, it turns out my friend Chris has kindly provided us with a resource that we can check at any time around the clock to see if I am, in fact, dead. Many thanks to her for thinking of it!

Tenebrous

red-green-and-blue-eyeHowdy! I’ve got a bit of a storytelling experiment to share with you. I’ve put together three short pieces of semi-abstract audio fiction for you to listen to. I’ve linked them down below the audio for this entry’s podcast. Listen to them in any order you like – I’m curious to know if that makes a difference or not – and let me know what you think in the comments or via e-mail (JimRyanMedia at gmail.com).

(Also – I’ll be doing a live version of Crucible at Realms at ConCarolinas 2015! Right now it’s listed as Jim Ryan Media Podcast on the schedule. Come by and build a world with us, whydon’tcha?)

Tales From Black Friday

BFI thought I’d end up with no posts this month, but just as I was giving up hope, I stumbled across the hysterical brilliance of the #TalesFromBlackFriday hashtag and felt the need to share it. 🙂

Pining for the Aughts

September 28, 2014 Leave a comment

OperatorI ramble for a while trying to put my finger on exactly what it is that bothers me about the way social media has changed since the late 00’s.

UPDATE: Since recording this, I’ve gone ahead and joined Ello. Here’s my page for anyone who’s currently in the Beta and wants to look me up there and say `ello: https://ello.co/otherdoc (cockney slang not required, but appreciated…) 😉

FIREOnce again a lot of craziness has been going on so I haven’t had time to put together a proper episode. So here’s another monologue! (Which, as it happens, appears in my book Abduction Etiquette!) 😉

Archive Audio: The White Liner!

May 28, 2014 Leave a comment

micI once again find myself trying to ski ahead of a deadline avalanche, so I didn’t have time to do a regular topic this week. So instead, here’s more audio from the vault! This is a faux commercial I came up with in broadcasting school to advertise a faux car. I hope it is to your liking!

Now Entering Headspace

May 20, 2014 1 comment

headspaceWhen I try to come up for a name for a fictional person, place or thing, it can sometimes take me quite a while because I don’t want to choose a name that’s already taking up a big chunk of the public’s mental real estate. In this episode I have a bit of a ramble about the way I try to approach people’s headspace as a writer, with the occasional divergence into madness and mimicry.

Monologue: BASILISK!

May 13, 2014 Leave a comment

BasiliskSo, it seems I managed to utterly fail to prepare a topic this week, so here’s something from my audio archives: a monologue in which I try to sell you a DNA-altering protein drink. I hope it is to your liking!

(DISCLAIMER: No basilisks, legendary or otherwise, were harmed in the making of this recording!)

Interview: Stephen Hood – Storium

storiumFor this blogcast’s 50th episode, I interview Stephen Hood, one of the creators of Storium, a new online storytelling game. It looks to be a project that will tickle the fancies of writers and gamers alike! It came to my attention when I saw huge numbers of writerfolk and gamerfolk from all over my social media talking about it. The game has a Kickstarter running as of this post, but there are only a few days left to pledge so go check it out now!
