Secrets of the Lord of the Rings

SQPN SLOTR SQPN has launched a new podcast named ‘The Secrets of the Lord of the Rings‘. I haven’t listened to it yet, but it looks very promising, since their previous Secrets of (Harry Potter and Pirates of the Carribbean) were very interesting as well.

Here is an excerpt from the press release:

“The Secrets of the Lord of the Rings” is a thrilling audio podcast that takes listeners on a voyage through the mythological and religious themes that have made J.R.R. Tolkien’s fictional work loved around the world.

Exciting moment

Tales of Heroes

Every now and then I also play the RTS game Company of Heroes. Or actually I enjoy watching replays from more since I am not that good at it ;). A great show about the game is Tales of Heroes. It has an audio podcast and a video replay review part ! Especially Bridger’s enthusiasm is great ;). Check the show out at

Podcast Priest

Everybody’s favorite priest, Father Roderick of the Daily Breakfast appeared monday night at the dutch late talk show Pauw en Witteman. For anyone who speaks dutch (it would make much sense if you dont know the language), the program can be viewed online at

Very nice appearance by the Podcasting Priest as he was called at this program, telling about how it all started and how he tries to appeal to the common podcast listeners, who dont have to be catholics to enjoy the program.

Podshow Plus

Last week on the 4th of july Podshow Plus went open beta. I was already part of the beta, got a golden ticket to access it through their devcast. And I only logged in twice. It’s layout and how things work is very cumbersome. They implemented some Ajax stuff on the site, but it was riddled with bugs at the time. I logged in again once it went live to the public and the bugs seems to have diminished, but the cumbersome interface remains :(. What is also very annoying is when you go to the podshow home page loud music starts blasting through your speakers and a truckload of commercials start flashing :(. Especially the Casino ones make it look like a cheap site (you know the ones you stumble upon when you mistype ;)).

Basically I am missing the whole point of podshow plus. I dont need their media player (which doesnt work properly on 2 of my systems btw) since I already have iTunes (or any other mp3 player will do just as well, probably better, their player ofcourse has an annoying ad on the bottom). And I certainly dont need the channel of your favourite podcasts, since not all podcasts are in there and I dont want one big feed making a mess of things.

Apparently I am not the only one who thinks this, got some nice reviews below.

There are a lot more, just do a technoratti search and a lot of posts will show up ;).
