So, I interviewed @vishnu on #AskScienceMike this week. That’s a first. https://asksciencemike.podbean.com/e/episode-174-this-with-michael-gungor/
1/ As one of the #buddhist6 (lol), I can’t recommend Sharon Salzberg highly enough for anyone who wants to dig deeper into Buddhism. I’ve seen her many times. She’s great for beginners because she makes the concepts and practices extremely accessible. There are lots of videos on YouTube, she has a podcast called “the Metta Hour,” and she’s written a lot of books. Her book “Faith” is one of my favorites and one I’ve heard her recommend often to people.
We’ve got a new episode of #TheLiturgists Podcast today. It’s called “Fear | Live in Nashville,” and I think it’s one of the most powerful shows that we’ve ever done.
You know @audreyassad is a good friend to me because we are both “message in a bottle” style communicators. We’ll toss a message across text or whatever, and just wait for something to float back.
In an age where eveything is measured, tracked, analyzed, and reported in real time, I have to tell you I love how little data I can see about user activity as an admin on a Mastodon instance.
It’s pretty much impossible to collect data here, and this platform is almost worthless from a corporate commincations perspective.
5 stars. I love it.
Today’s #AskScienceMike episode was the second highest first day downloads of all time (behind the Ask the Honey Badger one a couple of weeks ago). Despite taking a break, and then having an erratic schedule, I’m pleased to see people still listen. 🙂
It’s odd though that on such a good day, the iTunes rankings for the show actually got MUCH WORSE. I’ve seen that happen a lot with #TheLiturgists too. We’ll drop a really successful episode and see our iTunes rankins fall.
Facebook is a terrible company.
I want to delete my account so much, but my damn blue check makes it hard for someone to peronsonate me over in that hell hole of a trash fire. https://www.fastcompany.com/90314763/now-facebook-is-allowing-anyone-to-look-you-up-using-your-security-phone-number
Promoting my podcast.
There’s a new #AskSciecneMike, and I had a TON of fun recording it. I’m happier than I’ve been in some time. https://asksciencemike.podbean.com/e/episode-173-depression-a-loving-god-and-jesus-vs-mithra/
Sometimes I log in here and panic—I don’t have many mentions, and worry that the instance isn’t active. But, then I look at the Local timeline, and see lots of people having wonderful conversations.
I’m very excited to have a social platform for The Liturgists that is centered on the people, and not the podcast hosts.
This is an instance for folks who follow The Liturgists Podcast, The Alien & The Robot, and other things The Liturgists create.
