Now slick, digital and massively popular, audiobooks are the fastest growing segment in the publishing industry. But how are they made, what do the economics look like and will audio eventually kill the printed word? This week we’re talking to Laurence Howell from pioneering Amazon-owned company Audible.

Squaregopusher  

Do we have a title race on?! Maybe... While that's potentially happening there's long overdue eagle justice, a feisty Merseyside derby and yet more incredibly confusing mascots. There's also frankly excessive use of a personal shopper, a slick new surface on the Pompey highway and spat feathers from North of the border.

Ep 3. Death Note's Netflix live action is a bad idea, and why anime live actions usually suck  

Joey The Anime Man and AkiDearest need to talk about Death Note becoming a live action on Netflix. There was an online storm after the Trailer was released because a lot of people are pessimistic about it. Some are waiting 'til it comes out (in full) to cast opinions but Joey and Aki aren't so sure. Light has been made to look like a crack addict instead of the cool, slick character he was in the anime. The live action Director, Adam Wingard, worked on The Blair Witch Project reboot, which Joey hated. It only got 30% on Rotten Tomatoes, so others must've agreed. Makes Joey even less excited for the Death Note live action. The only redeeming feature is Willem Dafoe as Ryuk. Joey and Aki think most (if not all) anime live actions suck. What about you?

RW #8 - Dare Iz a Darkside de Redman  

C’est le grand retour des Rewind de NoFun ! En 1994, Jim Carrey est l’homme de l’année. Et justement, Redman a beaucoup de Jim Carrey en lui. Ils ont ce côté clown voire bouffon, crédible uniquement grâce à une énorme maîtrise de leurs arts respectifs, l’un la comédie, l’autre le rap. Redman incarne des personnages dans ses chansons, c’est un storyteller funky, hard core et drôle. Son aisance technique et son charisme font de lui un rappeur les plus emblématiques, tout simplement car il donne l’impression de rapper comme il respire. Sur son album Dare Iz a Darkside sorti en 1994, il joue un personnage schizophrène, entre fiction et réalité, entre gueule de bois et prise de conscience.

Terapidjur på planet: Ekots Johan Bergendorff i Los Angeles  

Utrikeskrönikan 13 mars med Johan Bergendorff Los Angeles flygplats, måndag. Kön till säkerhetskontrollen ser ut att vara oändligt lång. Det verkar förresten finnas flera köer och nån sorts smitväg, antagligen för passagerare som betalt extra för att slippa stå här och svettas. Står jag ens i rätt led? Planet går om en timme. Jag blickar upp mot en reklamskylt på väggen. Kaptenen har nu tänt skylten för svansviftning står det. Med tillägget: på LAX, som flygplatsen förkortas, så hjälper husdjur till att stressa av passagerare. Jag skakar på huvudet, eftersom jag minns hur det var på en flygning från Kairo till Wien härom veckan. Plötsligt började passagerarna bakom mig att ropa oroligt, stoppa den, akta tror jag att de sa på lite olika språk. Så känner jag hur nått stryker förbi mitt ben, blixtsnabbt. Ett litet djur med lång svans, är det en råtta? En österrikisk flygvärdinna ger barskt order att vi ska försöka fånga den livrädda katten som smitit ur sin transportväska. Jag sa till henne att hon absolut inte fick öppna på blixtlåset, förklarar flygvärdinnan och blänger ilsket på en blossande röd småbarnsmamma som står handfallen i mittgången. Passageraren bakom mig förklarar att hon har kattallergi och absolut inte kan fånga in missen. Själv gör jag ett försök, men den är hal som en ål, och jag vill inte nypa tag för hårt på fel ställe nere vid golvet utan att se den. Jag har inte lust att få ett infekterat kattbett och i värsta fall rabies. Efter att katten sprungit ett antal gånger förbi mina ben, så kryper flygvärdinnan ned på kabingolvet och in under stolsraden bakom och lyckas få tag på nackskinnet på kattstackarn. Småbarnsmamman tar den i famn och lovar att genast stoppa ned i transportväskan och stänga noga. Snart infinner sig åter lugnet. Ja utom dem som är flygrädda då, uppskattningsvis nånstans mellan tio och 20 procent av passagerarna i kabinen. Väl igenom säkerhetskontrollen här i Los Angeles frågar jag vad den där svansviftningsskylten som reklamen talade om egentligen innebär. Det visar sig vara ett program som funnits nu i fyra år där frivilliga tar med sina terapihundar som vanligen är på sjukhus hit till terminalen. Stressade passagerare kan klappar hundarna och får en vänlig slick som bot för sin ångest. Men ombord på planen kommer alltså inte de fyrbenta terapeuterna, så reklamen är missledande. Levande djur ombord kan ju dessutom som i mitt kattexempel snarare öka stresspåslaget. Den som sett filmen ”Snakes on planes”, där ett hundratal giftormar smugglas ombord på ett plan på väg hit till Los Angeles och sedan släpps lösa i kabinen, vet vad jag talar. Den vanligaste metoden för folk att klara sin flygrädsla verkar vara att dricka alkohol eller ta lugnande tabletter före start. Men en amerikansk studie tyder på att det kan öka fobin vid nästa flygning. Så varför inte ta med robotkatter ombord? Priset har sjunkit till under en tusenlapp styck för dessa jamande och spinnande hightech mjukisdjur. Vetenskapliga studier tyder på att de ökar välbefinnandet hos dementa. Äldreboenden både i New York och Kalifornien har köpt in säckvis till de boende. Jag tänker mig att kabinpersonalen inte bara delar ut hörlurar till filmvisningen utan också en bedårande robotvalp eller kattunge i knät för dem som behöver stilla sin oro. Naturligtvis med en knapp på magen så att den kan sättas i flight mode vid start och landning. Johan Bergendorff, global hälsokorrespondent johan.bergendroff@sverigesradio.se

The CBS Radio Mystery Theater - The Slick And The Dead (01-23-76)  


The Slick And The Dead (Aired January 23, 1976)
The CBS Radio Mystery Theater (or CBSRMT) was an ambitious and sustained attempt to revive the great drama of old-time radio in the 1970s. Created by Himan Brown (who had by then become a radio legend due to his work on Inner Sanctum Mysteries and other shows dating back to the 1930s), and aired on affiliate stations across the CBS Radio network, the series began its long run on January 6, 1974. The final episode ran on December 31, 1982. The show was broadcast nightly and ran for one hour, including commercials. Typically, a week consisted of three to four new episodes, with the remainder of the week filled out with reruns. There were a total of 1399 original episodes broadcast. The total number of broadcasts, including reruns, was 2969. The late E.G. Marshall hosted the program every year but the final one, when actress Tammy Grimes took over. Each episode began with the ominous sound of a creaking door, slowly opening to invite listeners in for the evening's adventure. At the end of each show, the door would swing shut, with Marshall signing off, "Until next time, pleasant...dreams?" THIS EPISODE: January 23, 1976. Program #420. CBS network. "The Slick and The Dead". Sponsored by: True Value Hardware, Luden's Cough Drops, Buick, Contac. E. G. Marshall (host), Ian Martin (writer), Russell Horton, Rosemary Rice, Mandel Kramer, Josephine Premice, Earl Hammond. 45:28. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.


Discópolis 9667 - 1970 (65) Jefferson Starship - 27/02/17  

Jefferson Starship y Pentangle en el episodio 65 de la serie sobre 1970. Ambos grupos publicaron sendos discos conceptuales en noviembre de nuestro año. El primero en realidad era un disco de Paul Kantner y su pareja Grace Slick hecho tras la desbandada absoluta de Jefferson Airplane. Se quedaron solos y empezaron a grabar cosas en el área de San Francisco. Grace Slick comenzó a escribir basándose en el libro Los Hijos de Matusalen de Robert A. Heinlein. Le salió una epopeya donde los hippies buscaban la utopía en el espacio exterior ya que la tierra estaba dominada por la violencia y el caos. El resultado es bueno pero con mucho texto. Solo el tema Starship, donde brilla Jerry García, ofrece buenos solos de guitarra y un piano muy elemental de Grace.- En el mismo momento pero en Gran Bretaña el quinteto Pentangle publicó su cuarto disco donde la cara b del elepé la ocupaba una balada, Jack Orion, también con mucho texto. El protagonista es un buen violinista que se lleva a las chicas de calle. Lo destacable es cómo el quinteto mantiene la tensión en una balada donde no se pueden hacer muchas florituras debido a su estructura literaria y melódico. La balada europea es similar a nuestro romance. Los músicos salvan la monotonía: Jacqy McShee, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Danny Thompson y Terry Cox, casi ná.

Funny Books by Robert Morgan | Saturday, February 25, 2017 | The Writer's Almanac with Garrison Keillor  

Because my parents had denied me comic books as sordid and salacious, I would sneak a look at those of friends, the bold and bright slick covers, pages rough as news and inked in pinks and greens and blues as cowboys shouted in balloons and Indian yells were printed on the clouds. I borrowed books... Read more »

Richard Diamond Private Detective - The Pete Rocco Case (10-04-50)  


The Pete Rocco Case (Aired October 4, 1950)
Richard Diamond, Private Detective came to NBC in 1949. Diamond was a slick, sophisticated detective, with a sharp tongue for folks who needed it. Diamond enjoyed the detective life, but not as much as entertaining his girl, Helen Asher. After each show, he would croon a number to his Park Avenue sweetheart. Mr. Powell, a former song and dance man, was perfect for the role. He added an extra dimension to the 40's hokey private eye drama. Diamond was a rough gumshoe that would often get knocked on the head with a revolver butt or other items. His counterpart on the police force was Lt. Levinson who often accepted Diamond's help reluctantly. Levinson would claim to get stomach trouble whenever Diamond would call him and would take bicarbonate to settle his aching stomach. Although they always seem at odds with each other, Diamond and Levinson were best friends. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. THIS EPISODE: October 4, 1950. NBC network. "The Pete Rocco Case". Sponsored by: Rexall. When Peter Rocco escapes from jail to kill Diamond, Rocco's mother hires Diamond to return her son to prison! Dick sings, "A Little Bit Independent" after the story. Dick Powell, Frank Worth (music director), Jaime del Valle (transcriber), Bill Forman (announcer), June Allyson. 28:19.

#060: Andrew Hallam (Part Two): The Nine Rules of Wealth You Should Have Learned in School  

Andrew Hallam grew a million-dollar investment portfolio on a schoolteacher's salary by his mid-30's.


In his bestselling book, Millionaire Teacher, he describes these nine lessons in detail.


He shares these nine rules on this podcast, and his ideas are so substantive that -- for the first time -- I decided to release his interview as a two-part series.


In last week's episode, Andrew shared the first three rules of building wealth. This week, Andrew dives into the final six rules that can turn middle-class people into millionaires.


Here's a sneak peek:


    •    #1: Learn how to think and spend like a millionaire.
    •    #2: Start investing early. Time is your greatest investment ally.
    •    #3: Choose low-cost index funds. Small fees pack big punches.
    •    #4: Understand your inner psychology. Conquer the enemy in the mirror.
    •    #5: Learn how to build a balanced, responsible portfolio.
    •    #6: Create an indexed account, no matter where you live.
    •    #7: Don't resign yourself to taking this journey alone.
    •    #8: Inoculate yourself against slick sales rhetoric.
    •    #9: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.


These rules may sound simple, but our discussion took an advanced turn. Andrew and I dive deep into thorny topics like hedge funds, casinos, and human psychology.


Enjoy this two-part series, and don't forget to check out Andrew's excellent book, Millionaire Teacher.
