A New Year’s Podcast

Happy 2014!

I point you to this little podcast for your Jan 1st enjoyment.

This time last year, Neil Scott’s ill-fated resolution was to record and post a weekly interview with one of his friends. Since I was staying at his house on New Year’s Eve, I would be Episode 1.

For some reason, we weren’t particularly happy with the result and Neil never posted it. But digging it out of the archives today, it’s hard to know what we didn’t like. It’s just a nice little chat between two friends.

I’m surprised by how articulate I am. I remember feeling pointlessly anxious about nothing and hungover from the previous evening’s revelry.

Anyway, it’s a nice little podcast. Have a listen. We talk about New Escapologist a lot, especially the practice of Escapology. Jacob Lund Fisker gets a mention, as do Tom Hodgkinson, Momus, Richard Herring, Matt Caulfield, Leo Babauta, Nicolette Stewart and other heroes of Escapology
