Now that you’re aware of Paul and Storm Talk About Some Stuff for Five to Ten Minutes (On Average), we thought we’d make note of a few things. The format is still evolving somewhat; but we have developed a few…well, maybe not rules, but…call them “operating principles.” We’re listing them here (and updating them as necessary) so that we don’t have to go back over any of them every time we do the show.
So then; until we arbitrarily change them:
- Barring schedule conflicts, we will always attempt to record the show on Monday evenings, and release it as soon as it’s edited and ready (usually late Monday evenings or Tuesday mornings)
- The intro music will always be “The By Cracky Beat” from Lowney’s Chocolates. (Find the song and more info here)
- The outro music will always be “Carry Me Back to Old Virginny” by the Tom-Terry Trio
- We assume that, if you’re listening to the podcast, you have at least a basic familiarity with us, our music, and what we do. If you don’t, please see the Paul and Storm FAQ
- We may occasionally play our own music, but probably rarely, and always for “a good reason”
- We make more than occasional references to Jonathan Coulton, who we sometimes travel with and open for. If for some odd reason you don’t know who he is, his website is here
- We also sometimes reference the BOB & TOM syndicated radio show, which you should visit here
- “Poochie” refers to other people talking about us, which we discuss in detail in Episode 001
- “Acknowledgment Day” is September 2 (discussed in Episode 006), and represents the date on which Felicia Day acknowledged our existence. That having happened, we declared a new goal: having Paul McCartney notice us, by way of Joss Whedon. The numbers in “Whedon Watch” and “McCartney Watch” represent the level of seismic activity that might lead to us achieving each goal.
- Donations sent to the podcast will go towards recording costs, pizza, and other things that we need or like. In return, you have our eternal gratitude.
- Yes, we are aware that the show is longer than 5-10 minutes (actual time = 15-20 min); enough with the emails already. If you need a proper justification, then the 5-10 minutes (on average) refers to how long we discuss any one topic.
