Toadcast #263 – The Tatcast

posttag Yes, another year, another total shambles of a podcast. Oddly enough, the one time this has been even vaguely together was the one year the BBC happened to show up to film it. How we managed to get it together for that one occasion I have no idea. Maybe the TV cameras scared us into behaving.

Anyhow, this year’s podcast is probably the biggest shambles since the very first SXSW podcast. We are joined, at various times, by Mrs. Toad, Young Ian, Pandy from Gerry Loves Records, Ben Soep, the managers of Tango in the Attic and We Were Promised Jetpacks, as well the BBC’s ultra-credible and in-no-way-inebriated Ally McCrae who definitely wasn’t still a total shambles from St. Mirren’s League Cup win earlier in the day. And that’s before the usual subjects as myself, Vic Galloway, Peej and Stuart from Creative Scotland.

We were a few Margaritas down already, and it only got worse during the podcast, honestly. I am not sure this tells you much about SXSW, but it sure gives you a pretty clear idea of what it does to people.

    Yep, you have Ian to thank for that one. Obvious, but good!

    I keep promising myself ‘next year I’ll make it out there’, then never get around to it… I feel like it’s changed so much since I was initially interested – which is a stupid thing to say as I’ve only the knowledge of it that blogs etc chuck at me every 12months.

    That Holy Esque lot sound interesting, still have no interest in Tango in the Attic.

    Too late on this for anyone to care anyway… (it’s been a day of catching up with podcasts at my desk today).

    It’s changed hugely in the four days since I’ve been going. I think you have to try a lot harder to find weird and interesting stuff these days – as opposed to the massive, commercial stuff – but I do still think it’s there if you have the wherewithal to look for it.
