The first Shabogan Graffiti podcast (Shabcast) was an astounding success, breaking all previous known podcasting records and propelling its creator to instant stardom. And it's back for a sequel, like Ace Ventura. In this month's Shabcast, Jack Graham (writer of the Shabogan Graffiti blog) interviews his other friend, the amazing Josh Marsfelder, writer of the resolutely different and clever Star Trek blog Vaka Rangi. Well, actually what happens is that Josh interviews himself and Jack sits back and listens. And the podcast is all the better for it, what with Josh being so informed and enthusiastic about subjects as diverse as Trek, the obscure Japanese Anime masterpiece Dirty Pair, Polynesian culture and Lacanian criticism. In this episode, you get just part of an immensely long (and ongoing) discussion. Never has hardcore nerdery sounded so intellectually respectable. (P.S. - We had some mic and software problems during our chat, which show up about 1hr 4mins into this episode. Jack tried to find a way of cutting the offending passage, but it was annoyingly crucial for the context. Having said that, the problem isn't too bad, and only occurs intermittently for a minute or two. So, stick with it.) (P.P.S - In the podcast I say that I'm going to call it 'The Joshening', but I decided against that as it turns out... though I now wish I'd decided to call it 'Q and A' instead.)
