Episode #211 Shownotes

Until the NFL takes it down, here's a video of the Superbowl halftime show. The 'Incident' happens at approx. 8:20.


I'm still looking for submissions for my 5th Anniversary show on the 25th of February. You can send track suggestions and mp3 introductions to ourobouros.podcast[at]gmail.com.


Only two relatively uninspired videos this week. At least The Foreign Resort seemed to have some fun on the streets of Copenhagen.

2. The Diction - Advantage
3. Kick To Kill - Mushroom Cloud

Episode #210 Shownotes

In the period between finishing recording and finishing editing, developments have happened. Now when you attempt to upload to Mevio, instead of simply saying the account has been suspended you are told that following a review, podcasts were found that fall outside the Mevio terms of service. Instead of dealing with the podcasts involved they suspended lots of accounts and are asking people to re-submit. This screenshot is from somebody else, but I got exactly the same message. I will almost certainly be having an extended rant about this next week.

Here is the post from TechCrunch that is closest to explaining what happened to Mevio. Other than the corporate-speak above that you only see if you're an affected podcaster, we still have no official word from Mevio. Here is a link to the press release that is referenced in the article and on my show. (The link used in the TechCruch post has been removed.) I'd be interested to know how many of the hits that got Mevio it's 'Top 15 Ranking' were for the audio podcasts it has unceremoniously dumped.


Only two videos this week, but both of them are pretty cool. The Haiku provide us with a video that unfortunately will be all too familiar to our short attention span world and Symphony of Science does his usual thing of viral video making featuring the 'lead vocals' of the awesome Neil DeGrasse Tyson.

Ourobouros Podcast #210 - Fuck Mevio

1. MayOrWest - Angels Never Age
2. The Silence Industry - We
3. Alice Rock - Robotic Perfection
4. Canon Logic - No Domino
5. The Haiku - To The Night
6. Symphony Of Science - Onward To The Edge

Fuck Mevio

If you read my shownotes for the last episode you will know that I've been having terrible issues with my podcast hosting.

My very good friend Rowley Cutler of the Dark Compass Podcast produced this video that sums up very nicely my feelings at the moment.



Believe me when I say that I will be ranting about this at the weekend.
