Posts Tagged ‘John Jewitt’

I am slowly beginning work on my epic historical podcast and step one is reading John Jewitt’s first person account of his stay on Vancouver Island.  Luckily his book is over 200 years old so it is free on the internet.  I have only read the introduction written by another Doctor years later.  He traveled to Vancouver Island in the 1860s, and his account of our region is amazing.  So worth the time to read.

The Adventures of John Jewitt

Last night was a rough one.  Madelyn has a cold so that means everyone has a cold.  She’d sleep for maybe an hour, then up wailing.  I battled her most the night then finally said, fuck it, and we got up.

Her nose is all boogery…. ewwwwww.

I am working on a few projects right now.

1) Satan on The Zone

for the past couple of hallowe’ens on the Zone, our producer Sheldon has produced these caller tags with Satan yapping on the radio.  Last year I took it to the next level by having Satan host my entire program… this year… it’ll be a produced hallowe’en extravaganza!

2) Explorations in Recorded Sound

I am still working to develop a radio show of heritage artists.  I did some work last night on maybe my 5th or 6th installment.  I like this show so far and will cut it as a demo version of the show and found a way to post it online for feedback.  This show might appeal more to your Mom and Dad… but if you like music like I do, there be something there for you.  The show I am working on right now is heavy on CCR and Roy Orbison.

3)  I am considering a run for city council here in Esquimalt.  Just not sure if I am ready to campaign right now to win.  I have been researching and trying to understand some of the issues that will matter to rate-payers in Esquimalt.

4) I am obsessed with John Jewitt’s adventures on Vancouver Island back in the early 1800’s… long before Fort Camosun or Judge Begbie or any of that.

Everything you need ot know about John Jewitt.

Wouldn’t that make a rad Canadian movie?

Today on the show, I am going to talk to a student at Reynolds (I hope) that says all the talk about how much money Oak Bay and Claremount raised for the Tour De Rock doesn’t matter because her school crushed them both… combined!

and I might try to get the talking head from Butchart Gardens on the show to try and explain to me how $22.50 to look at flowers is a good price.

I will need to admit to the man that we had a good time.. but after lunch, the cost for our family was like $80!  yikes… seems like the sorta place designed for aristocrats.  Get it?  Aristocrats!

The Times Colonist’s Iain Hunter nailed this one right on the head.

This is an election campaign, not TV game show
