The DC TV Report Podcast

A Special Report from Agent Carter

The website states the DC TV Report started as a segment on The Wicked Theory podcast, before growing into its own weekly mini-episode, only to then blossom into a full-fledged separate podcast.

What I Gained from Shouting Back from the Void 100 Proxycasts and Counting...

I recently had the privilege of being honored by my friends with a special episode of Our Liner Notes for having infiltrated 100 different podcast episodes. The very definition of “Proxycasting,” a term coined by Bill Sweeney of The Wicked Theory Podcast, which means “Palmer doesn’t need his own podcast, he has yours!”

The Internet History Podcast is the best History Class You Never Took

The Internet History Podcast Hosted by Brian McCullough

From Netscape and the browser wars to the origins of the MP3, the rise of walled gardens such as AOL and Prodigy, the first online advertising, and e-commerce. To the iPhone and the internet in our pockets, and the creation, destruction, and aftermath of the dot com bubble; the Internet History Podcast covers it all and more.

It started back in 2014, on the 20th anniversary of the Internet Era as we know it when Netscape was founded. It made host Brian McCullough want to read a book that summed up the Internet Era. “The only problem was, no such book existed.”
