New and Notable!

At time of posting, UK CardCast (my trading card podcast) is being featured on the 'New and Notable' ribbon on iTunes (in the Games & Hobbies section) and it is also at number 16 in the "Today's Top Podcasts' in Games & Hobbies/Hobbies...

To be honest, I only ever thought a couple of people would listen to the thing once I put it online, so the fact that over 100 people have downloaded episode 01, and 20 or so people have gone for episode 02 in the week since I posted it is fantastic!
Now, of course, I have to think aobut episode 03...

The Show

I had great fun on Sunday - courtesy of the Daily Star (and it's not often that I can say that!)
The tabloid had a token collect thing a couple of weeks ago - collect two tokens, stick them to a coupon printed in the paper and you got free entry to Star Wars Celebration Europe at the London ExCel, Docklands (which took place last weekend) I don't usually get the Daily Star, but a friend on NSU Card Talk, John the Hat, had a spare and he very kindly sent it to me.
There is a full report on what I saw at the show, with pictures, on the NSU Card Talk board and I'll also be covering it in the next episode of the UK CardCast podcast (including a couple of card related interviews!) which should be online by the end of this week, but to summarise - Wow!
Great show, and I seriously hope this is used by other show organisers as the model for how shows SHOULD be...

C'est CardCast, est Arrive!

So I managed, after a lot of trial an error, to finish the first episode of the podcast, and it is online now at CardCast.co.uk - it has been submitted to a number of Podcast Directories, including Yahoo and iTunes, and I've been talking about it in a number of places. Already, there have been 52 downloads!!! And that's BEFORE iTunes has accepted it...

Nearly here...

It's been 10 months since I last posted here about the podcast, and I finally have some news ro report - it is nearly here! Last weekend I recorded (via Skype) an interview with Harris Toser, the Production Manager of Non-Sport Update magazine (thanks Harris!) and I also updated the website for the podcast (which you can find here:http://www.cardcast.co.uk/
I'm currently working on the introduction and news segments and I hope to have the first episode online by the end of this week.
