MORE OVERSEAS ADVENTURES IN PODCASTING!

MORE FOR YOU FROM VIENNA...


Hello beasties!

This week I'm sharing some recent podcasts and there will be photos... Don't forget these episodes are not just available at the Soundcloud link - but also on iTunes (Apple Music), Acast, Podbean, Spotify, Overcast, PlayerFM and one or two other locations if you look closely enough!! Anyway - here's the first of two new episodes - the second of which is our episode that I recorded in Vienna back in August.

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 204: AN EAR-WORM NAMED TODD!

Here we are for episode 204! Mr Yeti puts his spin on "Ear-worms" after Toppie Smellie brought up the subject on episode 476 of The Smellcast recently. When Paul gets a tune stuck in his head Yeti Uncle John, Cromitty, Ikk turn to Cuthbert for advice - and when they do they meet an ear-worm who goes by the name of Todd! In our next episode, number 205 we head back to this summer and take a trip to Vienna which is anything but uneventful! Do join us, won't you?! Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. Sound effects by Paul Chandler and Soundbible. Thank you to Toppie Smellie for allowing me to use clips from The Smellcast and also to Tim and James - James and Tim for allowing me to use a version of a message that I sent to Tastes Like Burning (#260). All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2018. Episode 204 was recorded between 4th and the 20th October 2018, with a brief clip from a 1994 Sutton Park episode.

This episode can be downloaded on iTunes, Acast, Podbean and also from Soundcloud at the following link:

Next up - here's one that I've been holding on to since the summer - a little show that I recorded in Vienna back in August...

THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - 205: SHY YETI AND THE MYSTERIES OF VIENNA...

Here we are for episode 205! Paul and Toby head to Vienna for a holiday - accompanied by Cromitty who has some research to do involving an old painting in one of the galleries. It soon becomes evident that Paul's memory of a previous visit to the city is murky and he maybe deliberately hiding something from himself. Can Cromitty crack the mystery of what went on last time as well as learn some of the secrets of his own past!?! Thank you to Toby and Big Fatty for their contributions to this episode. Our next show, number 206 is most probably going to be our live Pride48 show for November 2018! Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments - you can even send me a sound-file and I'll include it on the show. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. Sound effects by Paul Chandler. All content of this episode is Copyright Paul Chandler, 2018. Episode 205 was recorded between 20th August and 4th September 2018.

This episode can be downloaded on iTunes, Acast, Podbean and also from Soundcloud at the following link:

Next up I have a few more photos to share with you which compliment the events of episode 205 and which were taken during my trip to Vienna back in August 2018. 



That last photo is from the painting where Cromitty spotted himself in the portrait! Make of that what you will!

Next time on the show I'll be sharing with you some of what I got up to during my week away around the time of my birthday... Hopefully I'll have been very busy editing and recording new shows; but we shall see!

Anyway, that's all for now; take care - more soon,

Yeti hugs,

Paul (aka Shy Yeti) xx

HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY, NICK!!

I don't have much else to say this post - but there are one or two photos that I've taken in the lead up to Halloween - or cute photos that Toby has taken involving Deeley... (He took the next one - although I took the one at the head of the post!)


I'm not sure that this counts as Halloween-y - it's just me pulling faces in the library podcasting studios during the recording of a future episode of the podcast; there are plenty more shows to come!


These last few are slightly more autumn-y and perhaps a little more spooky... A path through some woods - some mysterious feathers and an abandoned boot! Yiiikes!

 

Well, that's all for now - except for another of Toby's photos of Deeley - something spooky but silly that I saw in a supermarket and an old photo of Nick and I from about Christmas 2003! Oh, and there's an update on what podcast episodes to expect over the next few weeks...

HAPPY SPOOKY HALLOWEEN!!

Take care - more soon,

Yeti hugs,

Paul (aka Shy Yeti) xx
