Last Sunday Janet and I went to the Bricklayers Arms in London to meet the folks from Podshow - namely Mr. Curry, Mr. Bloom and Mr. Jacobs. A thoroughly splendid time was had by all. We managed to speak to all of them and jolly nice chaps they are too! It was good to meet all the Britcaster and Podcast User Magazine folks too.
It's funny but we've been visiting Britcaster for some months now and the PUM has been going nearly 4 months and I've only met people once! Janet has been twice but that's *another* story!
So, I thought I'd post a few pictures with a few comments. Some of these are ours, some are other peoples.
First off, above is a picture courtesy of Neil Ford. It so rare for anyone to get a decent picture of us together. Thanks Neil!
Next up is a picture of Janet with the Amazing Mr. Pinfield (rt) and the Delightful Mr. Pegg (left). Janet is the grinning loony in the middle.
Although Paul Pinfield is from oop-North he remains a top chap. Adrian Pegg is just an all round top chap. Roger Smalls t-shirts courtesy of the Britcaster Shop
Here is Kris Jacobs from Podshow talking to Paul Nicholls (PodcastPaul). Kris is in a suit because - as I understand it - although HE came to London safe and sound the conventional way his bags went on an altogether different route around the world. I've travelled a fair bit and I have seen what missing bags can do! And it's such a pain.
Last but not least here is Janet holding court with her disciples...
From left to right, the lovely Patricia Paay, Ron Bloom, Adam Curry (red glasses), Janet (red T-shirt) and Darren Wall. I'm hoping it's an optical illusion but it doesn't half look like they are ALL looking at her...
Finally, finally....."Look into my eyes, look into my eyes, the eyes, the eyes, not around the eyes, don't look around my eyes, look into my eyes, you're under."
"Podshow is not evil. Podshow is a force for good. We are all nice people to do business with"
"You're back in the room"
It's just the flash red-eye but with Adam's glasses it just made me chuckle!
Seriously though a wonderful time was had by all and we look forward to many more.
It was good to meet the Podshow guys and wives and Ron, Adam and Kris certainly opened up in many conversations about their plans for the future and how they see Podshow and podcasting developing in the next few months. Pleasure to meet you all!
