The Anti-Rant Podcast is Live

Yeah, I actually did it. You thought I was full of it, didn't you? Well, I have an honest-to-goodness podcast now. I actually have a good deal of stuff previously recorded that will gradually migrate there, but for now there is some new content to listen to there. You can either listen directly on the Anti-Rant blog thing, download the mp3s, or use the RSS feed to subscribe with your favorite podcast aggregate app.

The podcast is not listed yet on iTunes because my destestation of Apple is both passionate and undying. However, I know it'll get more exposure there so I'll try to get it in their directory eventually.

If you're wondering at all why I am doing this, the short answer is that I want more practice speaking and reading aloud so I can hopefully become a better orator. My writing skills are decent enough at this point, and when I do write I generally want to work on fiction. Anything more tied to real life tends to either be condensed into a tweet or morphed into a spoken piece of this podcast.

I could see continuing to write here for certain things, but for the most part I think we can call this the end of an era, and joyously the start of a new one. If anyone is genuinely disappointed to see me writing less here, I'm sorry to disappoint but I hope you'll at least give my other endeavors a try. (I say endeavors plural because there's still a novel I'm working on, plus that one other thing that's still too far from completion to hype at this point)

That's it. I don't know when I'll have more updates here, but just in case, I'd better go out with one more well-wishing sign-off. Peace and love, dear readers. I hope you'll become listeners as well.
