Episode 6 of Upon Further Review!

Well, it’s that time again as we’re here with Episode 6 of the extravaganza we call Upon Further Review! In this show we send a shout out to friends near and far (from the Worcester locale of The Wicked Good Podcast to the far flung regions of Trinidad and Tobago!) and explain our review policy (i.e., they aren’t always going to be glowing!) before addressing our usual smorgasbord of items for review: first, we examine that Internet phenomenon known only as MySpace and ask if it’s really all it’s cracked up to be; second, in the spirit of the season we look at the CamelBak water bottle and wonder if staying hydrated on those long summer hikes is worth potentially supporting the military-industrial complex (yes, we thought it was confusing too); and finally, we get our stopwatches working as we review the One Minute How-To podcast. Please continue to give us your comments, your voice messages, and your general feedback (don’t forget to add yourself to our Frappr map), and please know how grateful we are for your continued support…and spread the word about the show! (As always, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

    Can’t spring for the flight guys but there’s a spare room with a bed in it waiting for your visit :)

    Thanks, Bernadette…maybe you can rent that room out to raise money for our flight? ;) In all seriousness, thanks for the sentiment–we really love Australia, and would like to get back there sooner rather than later.

    Thanks for the review of One Minute How-To. I got exactly what I wanted, which was the impressions of a disinterested third party. This allowed me to hear what someone listening to the show really felt about it, and hear suggestions for making it better – I Appreciate it.

    Cheers –

    Greg, Clea,

    Laughing at my last comment. Didn’t mean to call you “Clean”, Clea. Well, I mean, I’m sure you are clean, but that’s not your name… anyway…

    I think the idea of 1m how to is great. I look forward to checking it out, hopefully with some of your suggestions added. I’m in communications and I know my former manager would have loved that idea – fast, simple, to the point.

    Now, a long pull from my Insurrection Camelbak and then off to MySpace to view a page. By the time I’m finished listening to ep6, it might actually be fully loaded :-)

    – Chris
