hey there, listeners. Ghosts in the machine? It seems early to come up with a demonym.

Do you have a favourite episode of the show? If so, why? I'm talking to my old radio station and might hand them a couple episodes to play in any gaps they really need CanCon for. I'm thinking "just like lost but everyone is Hurley", the EVE online one, and then probably the emojigeddon and swatting ones.

More approachable to less 'online' types than you or I is good. Any suggestions?

"Just like lost but everyone is Hurley" is a good choice because I think it is easy to understand, and inherently funny. That is probably my favorite episode, just ahead of the Eve Online episode. I think cockygate would work as well because the average person should be able to understand copyright disputes.

Honestly I think The Well, though entirely about internet community, is more about the human element, which is highly relatable.

ETA: Is Splinternet being considered as well? Because the one on China's internet security is VERY good.

E14: i felt i should just go to japan and die there.

SPLINTERNET is delayed until mid-August (i'm not kidding, two a year is almost too many), so I dug deep into my show ideas archive and pulled out a real doozy; I won't spoil it too much but obviously the title (a direct quote from my research, like many of Ephemera's titles) gives away some of the story, but just who "i" is, and why he wants to die in Japan, are kind of a slow burn that I think is audacious in its scope.

NB: incels ahead. you have been forewarned

Pretty interesting episode.  Until you  mentioned  you posted  pics, I did assume anon was making all that shit up,  but now I  guess I  don't. You did a great job feigning sympathy for this  assclown during the narration.  What's your secret?

ClaraTinSoldier, September 07, 2019, 12:29:02 am
other people are already doing it and I think it's not really in keeping with the archival focus I'm trying for. May I suggest:
Chapo did an interview with my boy Stefan Heck about how he killed the Renner app
Stefan also did a good breakdown on his very good podcast Blocked Party, which I really like, and not just because it's chock full of local Vancouver talk. If you want a more freewheeling discussion I think the chapo one is for you and if you want comedy and a more detailed breakdown I would listen to the most recent blocked party ep, with Guy Branum as the guest.

I'm sure Reply All will do an episode about it in like a month once they hear about it, too

Ps Splinternet this weekend and the regular ephemera by the end of the month. The next regular episode is about graveyards and mourning!
