Apologies for not updating in a while but I’ve been off experimenting with podcasting and recently people have been asking what’s the situation with the blog.  Well I think it’s been long enough and I’m going to start posting again some of which, well a lot of it probably, will be about podcasting, but not all and my less than laser sharp opinion on all things will be switched on again. 

For example I hadn’t seen the latest James Bond film until a few days ago after taking advantage of a free loveFilm voucher.  It’s brilliant and in this post Jason Bourne world is at long last the direction Bond movies should move in, Die Another Day was a bit pants in comparison…OK a lot pants!

After resisting for what seems like ages, because I didn’t see the point…and I still not sure I do, I’ve joined Twitter and of course I’m bored to tears with Facebook.  Find me at

Oh yeah the Podcast.  It can be found on iTunes, just search for “Binge Thinking” or at or for the RSS types amongst you   I’ve now published four episodes about the history of the US Constitution and number five, hopefully out in the next week, is the first of a two parter about the Battle of Britain.

Podcast Number 3

Posted in History, podcast by Tony C on September 11, 2007

Podcast number 3 is complete and is the longest so far at 33 mins.  I think it’s probably the best sounding one too, I’ve managed to slow down a bit and played around with faux voices for the quotes etc.  I hope like it.

I’ve a huge amount about creating Podcasts in a very short space of time…

My 2nd Podcast

Posted in History, podcast by Tony C on August 19, 2007

This weekend saw Podcast number two issue forth from the modest studio called Bedroom 3.  My brain still works faster than my mouth and I’m not sure I build a completely convincing story but there is still part three.

My First Podcast

Posted in History, podcast by Tony C on August 14, 2007

Last weekend I sat down and recorded my first Podcast, it’s not particularly slick but hey it is a first attempt.  My reason having a go was firstly to try it out the process and secondly to respond to a few interesting threads on Dan Carlin’s rather excellent discussion forum.   Dan has does two excellent Podcasts, Hardcore History and Common Sense with Dan Carlin and listening to him gave me the push I needed to have a go.  It’s the first of a few I have in mind which will attempt to draw a historical thread between the American Founding Fathers and two English republicans, Simon de Montford and Oliver Cromwell. 

Anyway I keep being told I have a face for Radio…

If you’d like to listen you can download it from the rather neat Skydrive site here.
