Ep 23: Perfectly Good Podcast – Songs Cut

PrintHere at Perfectly Good Podcast we hate leaving people out, and if songs were people that’s exactly what happened. Well over 200 people were left out in fact, so this episode we go about shining a light on some of those… people… OK this analogy is falling over now.

We’re doing two songs that aren’t in the book OK?!

But in a shocking twist we also get off track and attempt to find Scod a new segment that he can call his own. Were we successful? You decide…

Episode Notes:

20:06 – It’s Social Norm, back with a NEW BUMPER

Episode 22: Perfectly Good Podcast – Parties

Episode 20: Perfectly Good Podcast – Brevity

PrintWith so many rambling episodes that just go on and on, Tripod decide to mix it up by keeping this one to the length of the average commute. Why? Totally not because we ran out of time and needed to get to a sound check. We even managed to fit in three (short) songs – more bang for your minute!

AND IT’S OUR 20th EPISODE!

No time to celebrate though…

Episode Notes:

00:00 – Scod actually brought his family to work. His daughter was super well behaved.

Episode 19: Perfectly Good Podcast – Technology

PrintTechnology. It’s everywhere. It’s in every part of our lives. You’re even reading this via the power of technology and you didn’t even realise it. That’s the power of technology.

In this episode we delve into the technical world of technology and hear complex narratives on the subject in song form via “The Wheel” and “Playing Online”. We also get a meaty Mailbag, some “live” bumpers and Poggo decides to give a poor arranging lesson, however being without his computer he uses the next best thing – Tripod.

Episode Notes:

00:00 – I really wish that these were made up bits, but we just press record and this happens EVERY TIME.

05:48 – It wouldn’t be an episode about technology without a Gatesy’s Audio Corner!

12:14 – Scod drops a bombshell

Episode 18: Perfectly Good Podcast – Lady Robots Part 2

PrintWe’re back with Part 2 of “Lady Robots”!

In this episode Poggo gets a little Hollywood and recaps Part 1 with a stunning amount of copyright infringement before moving onto a new Cyber Bag™ with the usual mixed results. It’s at this point that we pick up where we left off – Tripod stuck in a jail (gaol?) cell on an alien planet. But what happens next??

We only feature one song this podcast; the delightful and heartfelt “We’ll Make It Work” with Yon, however there was so much “singing” during the Cyber Bag™ that we thought you’d probably heard enough by then…

Episode Notes:

00:00 – It’s a recap of Part 1, with all the Hollywood special effects that Poggo could steal muster.

05:15 – Probably the most undisciplined opening bumper we’ve ever endured.

07:06 – *Some* was public domain. Points for knowing where some of the music/sfx came from.

08:42 – It’s the Cyber Bag™!

18:51 – We embark on a dangerous (and painful) exercise where we find Yon, Gatesy and Scod’s vocal range. Poggo is arbiter. Let’s see who “wins” music.

26:13 – We resume “Lady Robots” with Part 2.

39:57 – Live performance of “We’ll Make It Work”.

59:45 – And we made it!

1:03:30 – Special announcement coming soon!

Episode 17: Perfectly Good Podcast – Lady Robots Part 1

PrintThis week we venture deep into a classic Tripod show “Lady Robots”. But so thorough is our re-telling of the tale that we decide to present this in-depth discussion in two parts. HERE IS PART 1.

In this episode we hear live performances of “This Is My Last Transmission”, and in a uncharacteristic error, we hear a(nother) live version of “Someday The Lord” (first heard on this podcast back in Episode 3!). Sometimes a cappella can not be contained to one single performance… How good is Tripod’s a cappella this time? Only Poggo can lay down his righteous judgement.

And of course, this episode would not be complete without reviewing how our intrepid Merch Captain Gatesy is doing with the veritable landslide of merch orders he received since last episode. He was not in a good way when we found him…

Episode Notes:

00:00 – The orders never stopped, and neither did Gatesy’s mind as it slowly slid into Merch-Madness™

8:30 – There we are, it only took eight and a half minutes to get to the introduction of topic of the show. Tight!

13:21 – Yon’s stack hat has pride of place in the Tripod Clubhouse

15:52 – Haven’t been to PAX Aus? Check it out HERE!

17:40 – Bonus Song!

18:34 – Let’s start from the top with ACT 1, as retold by the lovely Yon.

19:41 – End of ACT 1, Begin ACT 2

20:33 – Live performance of This Is My Last Transmission

32:10 – Poggo sets a trap…

33:06 – Write in on Twitter or Facebook if you think that was even vaguely a harmonica.

34:38 – Live performance of Someday The Lord

38:04 – Apologies for redoing a tune we have heard before. Tripod will be disciplined later.

38:34 – It’s Andrew from the FUTURE, ready to be a jerk.

39:33 – OK ok… that was pretty darn good, especially given Yon had to pick those starting notes out of nowhere.

44:43 – Gatesy’s Merch Corner BUMPER. This time it’s short and to the point. We mark Gatesy on his progress.

52:27 – It’s a new stock BUMPER – T-SHIRTS! Check out Tripod’s merch store here:
