Last night I got to meet up with Keith McNally, of XO and I Have A Ham Radio fame and hangout for a bit. We got to reminisce and share our different experiences of living in New York City and compare and contrast them. We also got to see a free comedy show at the Kniting Club in Brooklyn in the neighborhood of Williamsburg. I had heard earlier that day that Marc Maron was going to be doing a guest spot before heading back to CA and thought it would be a great way for Keith to start out his week back in the Big Apple.
Not only did we get to see him that night but thanks to series of events we actually got to share a booth with Marc Maron and talk to him for a bit before the show began. I took a picture to commemorate the night and I got some stickers from Maron for his podcast, WTF With Marc Maron. It was a great night to say the least.
One more note before I go. One of things Keith got to talk to Maron was about his inability to embrace New York City. Marc told him how it isn’t hard once you come up with a system to make the city achieve whatever it is you want to do and how great the city could be once you figure it all out. Then after he finished talking up NYC, in his next breath he talked about how he wasn’t going to be living here anymore and essentially how he couldn’t wait to go back to CA. So far for trying to convince Keith about how great the Big Apple is.
For anyone who is a fan of podcasts and wanted the ability to stream their favorite shows like a radio station a la pandora, Stitcher is the website for you. If you have an iPhone, Blackberry, Palm Pre/Pixi or Android phone, there is also an app to make streaming easier. I had heard of this program a few months ago (right when I first got my iPhone) but they seemed to had a limited amount of shows to choose from.
Then lo and behold, when I checked out Marc Maron’s website recently, I realized that they have been adding more content and that they now had the option for podcasters to request that they add their shows on their directory as well. I immediately emailed them and can now proudly say, The Julio From NY Show is now available on Stitcher as well. Please support them and my show as well by clicking on the Stitcher badge below, signing up and adding my show to your favorites.
