Bit more guestblogging – and a surprise

Header: Wired UK - GameDad

It’s funny how one thing can lead to another, on the net.

About a month ago, I spotted an interesting tweet that someone I follow had ‘retweeted’. I followed the tweet back to the writer, to read more of what they had to say. They happened to be a writer for Wired UK, the anglo offshoot of the famous US magazine. And they’d mentioned something called a ‘GeekDad’ blog, which was looking for contributors.

I sent a few emails, wrote some demo posts, and recently had my first GeekDad post published.

'Time Travel Cassette' blog post

Then last week, a blogger on the Wired U.S. site linked to the post. But that’s not where the story ends. Early this week, I was contacted by a producer for the Tom Dunne show – a morning talkback show heard across Ireland on Newstalk 106-108FM. They’d read my post, and wanted me to come onair to chat about it.

If you’d like to hear me talking ‘old school cassettes’ and other retro things, I should be on Friday morning (25th March) at 10.30am, Dublin time. Non-Irish readers: You’ll be able to stream the audio live. (If it’s ‘in the middle of the night’ – in your timezone – I’ll upload an archive audio link, afterwards.)

    Thanks guys; I’ve added a ‘listen live’ link to the above post, if anyone outside Ireland wants to do so.🙂

    Great interview Gabe! Lovely story about your Dad’s storytelling.

    My dad found a tape he made a *long* time ago, and in the background is my mother speaking which was surreal for us as she died 11 years ago.

      Thanks Donncha, and again, for your kind ‘tweet out’ just beforehand.

      Hopefully a few listeners have a look around their cupboards and shoeboxes, listen to some old tapes, and make a few discoveries of their own….
