My Princess Has MS Podcast: Logo Reveal!

As you probably heard on the show, I’m a huge nerd. Word nerd, Nerd nerd, and Tech nerd. Logos are cool! So I’m busting to reveal our podcast’s new one!!

Makes it feel all real and professional and stuff!
Thanks to my endlessly talented cover and graphics designer Dylan Edwards for this!

Les doesn’t get very excited about such things.

I get very excited about such things. Good colour, cartoon style, appealing visuals…

I know, I get too excited about such things.

Pretty snazzy, huh?

Watch for it on all the Social Things when we announce new episodes each Thursday!

My Princess Has MS: behind the scenes: Episode 1

In which we sum up impressions of our pilot episode. There may be some flirting. Listener discretion is to get over oneself.


Thanks to everyone who have shown us so much amazing support and incredible encouragement! We had no idea this little idea would be so warmly received. Princess is overwhelmed by all the great comments and feedback, and it has given her countless smiles.
Which is really all that matters.

Episode 2 to air Thursday, December 19th!

My Princess Has MS Podcast: Episode 1

So, we’re going to try this podcasting thing!

Click on the link below to listen to the first episode of our new podcast, My Princess Has MS. It’s a bit rough, as it’s our first go at a live, unscripted peek into what it’s like living with Multiple Sclerosis.

As former broadcasters, we’ll be endlessly trying to tweak the audio quality. But we’d love to hear what you think about the content!

Engen Books Podcast, The Write Project, Episode 4: There shall be no other name.

Pseudonyms? Nah. Not unless I turn to writing erotica. And, if I did, I wouldn’t be announcing it here, because such things make my ears blush.

But it was a question posed on The Write Podcast, so I jumped at the chance for a little self-promotion and the opportunity to gab about anything writing.

You can catch the show here:

And if there is ever a Soundcloudpocalypse, here’s an archived copy:

I’m just one guest in a host of other Atlantic Canadian talent who give their opinions about pen names. And they are great people, so you should give them a listen. Spoiler: one person already is using one, but Mary Walsh (yes, THAT Mary Walsh) is not.

Podcast teaser.

Princess and I recently accidentally taped what could be a teaser for a podcast.

After we listened to it, here’s her working description that she wrote, and, I have to say, if I read this on a list, I’d subscribe.

But I’m biased.

Working Description: A fantasy writing, body building, mental health nurse and his MS afflicted, perimenopausal, chronically depressed, anxiety ridden, panic stricken, OCD-bound, neurotic, poodle-obsessed wife discussing their life as empty nesters and dog parents; hopefully, making it sound more interesting than it really is.

We do, however, have broadcasting backgrounds that need not go to waste, so there’s that. Finally, that college diploma gets put to good use.

We have no idea what we’re doing, but it seems like fun, so why not. (That is also the guiding philosophy of our approach to both parenting and being married people).

You can listen to what could be the teaser below:

We’d love to hear what you think. Should we make it a thing?

Engen Books Podcast, The Write Project, Episode 3: The Starving.

The Starving is a great book. It’s a horror western with a Lovecraftian flavour and the brainchild of fellow Atlantic Canadian writer Jon Dobbins. So for all of those reasons, I’m a fan.

Dobbins has many. Some of them are amazing writers themselves. Engen Books’ The Write Project podcast was kind enough to invite me to join them to discuss The Starving on the show.

For posterity (and out of sheer narcissism), I’m archiving the podcasts the show’s host, Matthew Ledrew, dares to put me on, so if there are any issues with the link, you can also listen here:

If you listen, feel free to use my segment to frighten insects out of your house or curdle paint. I’m told my voice can do that. The other writers are amazing Atlantic Canadian talent who are the rising wave of the kind of creative talent this part of the world is becoming known for.

And if the old west is one of your favourite places to experience existential terror, get your copy of The Starving and support an up and coming writer by clicking on the image below.

Engen Books Podcast, The Write Project, Episode 2! (Actually 56, but it’s me, so…)

(Click on the image. It will take you to the Cloud of Sound, wherein the magic lies).

Another episode of Engen Books‘ podcast, The Write Project, in which I blather about big publishing companies I do not work for, thingies King, Lovecraft, Tolkien, my theory about Game of thrones, and writer’s block, in which I foolishly test the literary divine.

Out of sheer existential terror of all things internet and extinction thereof, I made a MP3 thingy. Take THAT, 6-week Soundcloud storage limit! :

(Much editing was required, because, as my wife will tell you, I talk too much).

If your ears are not bleeding (or, if they are, and you’re kind of into that), see my previous post for Episode 1, which is actually Episode 54, but I get too excited about being on podcasts, so it’s 1.

A walk in the dark invites an inescapable terror.

A horror short story in the spirit of Cthulhuian nightmares.
