Episode 4: Fear

Episode 4: Fear

This week, I talk about fear and doing, talking about productivity, I consider when it’s time to set aside the to-do list and just take the leap.

I also briefly discuss my workflow for writing, and making this podcast, both of which definitely aren’t ideal but work for me.

I also give a mention to my new pet project over at Take An Ad’ Break where in the coming weeks and months you’ll be able to find commentary from me on some of the most awesome and most appalling adverts on television plus coverage of advertising in other mediums.

Just want to say hello

Hello from me, this is my fun new project the Scatterbrain podcast - a short form podcast about technology.

This is something I’ve wanted to do for a really long time and now I’ve finally got my hands on a beautiful new iPhone 4 and I thought now would be a good time to just go ahead and do it. I’m currently using the built in voice memos app so I apologize if the sound quality isn’t completely satisfactory.

There’s no clear release schedule for the show, the plan is to record whenever I have something to say. I’m intending to cover a lot of technology stuff, but also design and advertising amongst other things.

Since i’ve now found the knack to hosting the podcast using a combination of Dropbox and Tumblr1 it’s up and online, you can follow here and simply click the link at the start of each episode to listen, you can also subscribe via RSS or in iTunes, apologies for the lack of artwork and other metadata, something has gone amiss on the Feedburner end and it will hopefully be sorted soon. If you’re the type who likes to have the artwork, for the time being you can download it here, it should be easy to add by going to Get Info > Artwork.

If you’re one of those cool guys like myself who uses Instacast though, the feed seems to be working perfectly through them, so if you’re wanting the full monty with metadata and all, add the feed: pcast://feeds.feedburner.com/scatterbrainpodcast and try to enjoy.

Once again, I have to thank Myke Hurley of Enough, The Bro Show, App Orchard, 11 Minutes and The Hurley Bird, all under the umbrella of 70 Decibels, and Ian Broome who does a great podcast called Chat Broome, they don’t know who I am but both of them inspired me to get started and do this, for better or for worse!


  1. I’m going to try and get a post up about just that as well, since it’s hard to figure out initially but is obviously a good way to get started with a podcast on the cheap.
