After spending the weekend at Northern Voice, Sunday night we went to a podcast meetup in Coal Harbor. This was convened by Mark Blevis from the Canadian Podcast Buffet. I have to say, podcasters are really down to earth, they don’t have blogs and they all wear glasses. At least these were my impressions based on the lovely group that shared a 4QT pitcher of beer at TC Lions Pub.
John kept track of most of the business cards so I’m sure in his post about the event, he’ll have all the links. I monopolized most of Shyam’s time (he’s from the Foreskin Radio podcast) since we both discovered we have common friends back in good ‘ol Surrey.
Yesterday John and I took some time for ourselves. We went our for some excellent Mexican food, treated ourselves to Margaritas and got some ice cream to take home. My first year as a Bollwitt, and him being a Vancouverite, has been the most challenging of my life. Nothing comes easy, it’s always an uphill battle. We are real with each other, we don’t sugar coat, although we can be pretty sappy at times. I’m looking forward to everything we have yet to come up against because although some things break you down, you build back up and become stronger. That’s what I’d like to think, anyway.
