Dossier of Importancy Pod Stories at Purple Thistle

Gist: As i am undergoing an epically wonderful slog of personal archeology, i love the part where i find new treasures, less-so is tidying up already created things, but (as you maybe know), i’ve migrated 13+ sites/feeds/channels into one mega site (almost 5000 mixed-media posts) a few years back (thanks Duane).

I tell you this because: sometimes there are “errors and omissions” – broken links, missing images, duplicate posts, mis-categorization etc. Sometimes these are import errors, typos or sloppiness by me or helpers (often hired by Upworker etc.)

For example, recently (Dec. 2020) David G. noticed the audio embed for the “Taos Hi-jacking Incident” was borked (there was an extra “http”) and i also noticed the url slug didn’t follow my conventions. Thanks to his noticing, these are fixed. I have a spreadsheet to track such things (yes, its true, me a spreadsheet!).

Oh i should mention, most all the pods from “Choogle On with Uncle Weed” and “Postcard from Gravelly Beach” series, as well as the “grab bag” of lectures, spiels, riffs etc as “Community Feasthouse” are hosted on Internet Archive for future proofing. i.e.:

So two more things:

1) If you find errors and omissions, please submit on errors and omissions form (natch)

2) You should totally listen to the story of the night at gunpoint. When i recorded the riff year’s ago, i’d fallen out of touch with the co-conspirator Sooby Ahmed, but now back in touch and he can confirm and extrapolate any details required. 

Update: Sooby errr “Sohaib” says, 

listened to and with a nostalgia that took me back. While others were feeling beat and on the road we hit a bump! The generation its been or so since is less the surprise than this incident. I think it went well though. Thanks for recapturing!

Whatcha think?
