WOWS Podcast to Return

After a 4 year hiatus (that’s what it was, we didn’t split up like INSERT BOY/GIRL BAND HERE) the WOWS Podcast presented by myself (Jimbo) and Fisher (not myself) will be back wasting more webspace and more of your time (should you choose to listen) very soon. Here’s everything you need to not really know about our triumphant return.

Where did you go?

I’d like to say that we went to live in some mountains in Malaysia, met a podcasting Jedi called Yoga (also a brand of microphone) who taught us a unique set of skills to turn us into the best podcasters in the Western Hemisphere, but actually we both just got busy with work, getting married, moving houses and most recently for me, having a baby. I’d like to take the credit but it was actually my wife who did 95% of that last bit. 

Why return now?

We want to spend less time with our wives  reignite our creative flair. We feel like we have a lot to offer the world. Take Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump, they are both pretty topical and widely talked about,  but Fisher and I both have better hair cuts, more natural chemistry and I think we could trade even better insults with each other. Admittedly we don’t have the nuclear capabilility to reach America but we have upgraded our podcasting system and we think that with some effort we could break America but not in the same way Kim Jong-un wants to.  Before we attempt to break America we are just going to send some podcasts over Japan first, just as a warm up. 

What can we expect?

A bloody good podcast. Topical with a side order of wit. Unfortunately there could be the occasional “dad joke” now I have the license. While we want to retain some of the qualities  that made episodes 1-9 a roaring success with at least over 12 listens per episode (I personally listened 3 times they were that good) we are also going to introduce some new regular features and a different show theme per episode.  If you would like to suggest a theme we are happy to consider, 4 years ago we were bombarded with requests for a “silent” themed episode.

When will the first new podcast be?

When I last spoke to Fisher we agreed we would get to work when he has finished cricket. I think he has finished now so as soon as I’ve finished my tea we’ll make a start.

We will meet up and plan the podcast on a Monday, record the podcast on Tuesday, we’ll be making love on Wednesday, and on Thursday and Friday and Saturday so we’ll probably release the podcast on Sunday. If Craig David can come back from the showbiz wilderness than so can we. 

Being serious now, we’d like to release a new episode every 2 weeks on a Wednesday/Thursday evening. There’s no Eastenders on a Wednesday so there’s a potential audience we can tap into there.

Where can I keep up to date with all this exciting new podcasting?

I knew you would ask that. You can keep an eye on the Waste Of Webspace website (right here) we usually post something every 2-4 years so you’ll never have to wait too long for an update.

Or there’s our twitter @WasteOfWebspace which we use so often that we forgot the password to it. There’s also a Facebook page which I only remembered existed recently. 

Or our personal accounts where you can read my tweets about baby poo and wheelie bin collection dates or Fishers cricket success and late, over crowded trains.

@CFishTank

In the mean time check out the original WOWS Podcast episodes 1-9 which are now so out of date that a lot of the celebrities we talk about in them have now died or are in prison. So I suppose we are winning because that didn’t happen to us in our 4 year absence.

#TechTweetsNowtOnTV

This week Jimbo (@JimboStudios) and Fisher (@CFishTank) tweeted all about technology from the old to new!

Jimbo (@JimboStudios)

Blender – “I apologised for the mix up”

Laser eye surgery – I once went to a seminar about this but I didn’t see the point and couldn’t focus

Astro Turf – this invention unfortunately doesn’t help Astronauts play football in space

Toaster – when talking about technology with my friends, this seems to pop up quite often

E-Mail – stands for electronic mail. The first email I sent was a package with a battery and wire in it

Pocket Calculator – this is an excellent device for working out how many pockets you have

Light Bulb – very important invention, it was one of those candle moments hovering above the inventors head at the time

Fridge – Me and my ex girlfriend split up because she didnt let me buy a new one of these. She was frigid

Push up bra – people wrongly assumed this invention would go tits up

Escalator – I once saw a fight start on one of these. I could tell trouble was going to escalate

Blender – I once accidentally put someone else’s fruit into my blender, I apologised for the mix up

Compass – I find this really useful. When I get lost I can draw a perfect circle

Fisher (@CFishTank)

Smartphone – mine wears a shirt and tie

GPRS system – I can’t find mine

Microwaves – a friend of mine asked me how powerful my Microwave was – I don’t know Watt he was talking about..

Sending a fax – Jimmy Savile used to offer to do this for people – he’d say, “Jim’ll fax it”

HD TV – the definition of this is perfect – the dictionary have got it spot on…

Electric Guitars – these were invented in the 1950’s and they struck a chord with musicians..

Computer Monitor – I know someone who had unprotected sex with one of these – he then had to go to the VDU clinic…

Black box – these record flight information from planes and they’re also John Terry’s least favourite type of box

Personal Computers – are more commonly know as PC’s – Gary Glitter’s was once taken away by a PC.

AM radios – I only listen to these before midday…

Smartphones – mine wears a shirt and tie

Fax number – I often get these confused – I suppose I should get my fax right…

A Fridge – I once had a big argument with someone about one of these – in the end, I told them to chill..

And some Tweets from our #TweetsNowtOnTV followers

Transformer – circuit board component that turns into a giant robot – @a_gosnay

PC – I had a headache when I was using a PC someone told me I should have had a tablet – @jo_miller70
