Firing up the podcasts of hi-jinks, poetry and adventures since 2005 / commercial-free and crafted with affection

Background: Since 2005 with Clubside Breakfast Time podcast (prob one of the 1st 100 pods in existence), I’ve hand-crafted plenty of audio dispatches for personal/artistic amusement and also for business/work gigs (mostly not listed here).

Recently, did a big “podcast migration and tidy up” process//project to move most of the audio files to Internet Archive, standardize post format (including ensuring cover art, description and choice of download or “play in browser” and added to loads of podcatcher/broadcast/whatever channels/apps.

Anyhow, what follows is a clearinghouse of podcasts and locations. If notice any errors or omissions, please let me know,

Postcards from Gravelly Beach – Spoken word literature featuring counter-culture literary stalwarts from the Russians to the Beats – read by host Dave Thorvald Olson – along with original freeverse poetry, fiction and expository writing, with occasional rambling discourse and conversation.

Since August 2005, each episode is carefully homegrown – recorded spontaneously at some splendid locale and backed by an eclectic assortment of music. No commercials, shout-outs, begs for reviews, plugs, endorsements, just hanging out while i read and talk somewhere, and then some music, sometimes.
