U&F Legion Episode 9 at Patreon

The ninth episode of U&F Legion is now live exclusively at my Patreon page.
Legion is the main story that follows on from U&F Underground. If you’d like to join me at Patreon, my advice is to wait until the start of next month, because Patreon charge you when you sign up for the month you sign up in, and then again at the start of every month thereafter.

The U&F podcast series is available at the US$3 pledge level. Yes, just $3 (or your local currency equivalent) for over 70 U&F podcasts, plus exclusive news podcasts and various other ditties. So make a note in your new 2022 diary to become a patron of mine on January 1st. You know you need it 😁

UF Season 3 E6 & Storm Barra.

As you may have seen in your podcast feed, U&F Season 3 Episode 6 is now live. I mentioned in it that we were about to get clobbered by “bomb cyclone” Storm Barra and that I feared we’d lose power. So far, we’re still connected (which is how I’m able to write this), but it is ROUGH out there. I took the dogs for a walk and on a few occasions the wind almost blew me over. If you’re in Ireland, batten down the hatches and stay safe.

Here’s how Irish broadcaster, RTE are reporting the storm today

U&F Season 3 Episode 5 – Delayed

As the title says, the next episode of U&F S3 is delayed due to a power cut in my area. The electricity has been out all afternoon and only just come on, and since I have a Patreon episode also due today, that’s the work that takes priority. So my apologies to all those who were expecting an episode today. Power outages permitting, Episode 5 will go live tomorrow.

Recording Legion 8, and Waiting …

I’ve been recording U&F Legion episode 8 today. It’s a big chapter. I’ve been recording for an hour and I’m only halfway through. But then some neighbour started up a big power tool (power washer? big drill?) so I had to stop. It’s been buzzing away for about ten minutes now with no sign of stopping, so I thought I’d blog about how I’m sitting here waiting it out.

What’s really annoying is, there’s a big storm coming in tonight and through tomorrow, so that’ll kibosh recording too. Arg! Oh for a soundproof booth, eh? I’ll have to stick it on the wish board or whatever those things are called and dream really hard till I get one.

Sea Swim

I went for a sea swim with my wife on Saturday. Sea was cold, obviously, but once we were dried off and settled down with hot water bottles and coffee, we soon warmed up. Tesco’s ginger chocolate biscuits also helped, as did the sun when it came out shortly after the above pic was taken. You can see the sky clearing in the pic below. A great start to the day.
