The “Week of Palmer…” You’d think it was orchestrated, but it really wasn’t.
Starting on Sunday January 17th with Our Liner Notes followed by The Wicked Theory Podcast on Monday January 18th, 7 Days A Geek on Tuesday January 19th and ending with Reasons Are Several on January 21st, the “Week of Palmer” occurred as an unplanned, welcome period of time with shout outs, stories and questions on four different podcasts.
So, to thank them all for their support I am recapping the best of these moments from during the “Week of Palmer.”
During Our Liner Notes Episode 9, featuring special guest Diamond Dave Maier, Diamond Dave said “Agent Palmer is a really cool guy,” which was after he lamented the fact that he had yet to hear my guest spot on that very podcast during Episode 6 titled “Agents of New York.” Now, it is no secret that I have been a follower of Our Liner Notes since the podcast’s inception and I thoroughly enjoy the guests and stories chosen by hosts Paul Maier and Chris Maier.
That wasn’t the only mention I had on that show either. Towards the end of the episode Chris reveals to Paul that I sent the show two e-mails, which Paul “would like to see.” Besides telling them they are doing a wonderful job, I also encouraged Chris to start a podcast with his wife Kristin, who has been the only two-time guest on Our Liner Notes.
The chemistry that Chris and Kristin have on mic is fantastic and I’m not alone in thinking so. Diamond Dave is also in my corner suggesting that the couple take their talents to their very own forum.
Now, the shout outs from Our Liner Notes may have been unplanned and an unexpected surprise, but the second podcast during the Week of Palmer, was expected as I had sent a reply to an invitation I received from The Wicked Theory Podcast.
That communiqué was me accepting an invitation from the boys to appear in person on their show. Something I hope to do in the not too distant future. My reply was read during Episode 36, which was in response to my being called out on Episode 35, in which they Dom wondered “when’s Palmer gonna come to town?”
Then came the third podcast to mention Palmer during the week, 7 Days A Geek’s episode 131. There were two sections of the podcast in which Grant (TK1) and Jay (The Angry Ginger) brought me up. The first was about having my “dirty fingers in everything” and my love for podcasting and being behind the scenes. But my favorite part of that discussion is when The Angry Ginger asks “can we go back to the days when Palmer drove you crazy? Because that made better podcasting.”
And let’s face it, Ginger’s not wrong.
The second section was when Grant reveals to the public that I am an “Executive Producer,” of 7 Days A Geek, and give me a plug when talking about the Star Wars polls we ran for that episode.
Finally, the grand finale for the “Week of Palmer” was 45 minutes of Reasons Are Several’s Episode 100 devoted to the 14 questions I sent in for that special anniversary edition of the podcast. Reasons Are Several did in fact ask listeners to send in questions, I just happened to send in a few more than everyone else. But that doesn’t mean my questions were necessarily the best, listen to it and you be the judge.
So that was the “Week of Palmer.”
Whether I sent something in or just came up, I thank Our Liner Notes, Wicked Theory, 7 Days A Geek, and Reasons Are Several for making this week possible.
