    GlimmerCast Episode 9 - The Fanfare


    Hey this is episode 9 of the GlimmerCast - The Fanfare.In this episode we sit down and interview Jessica Shumaker, the executive editor of the GlimmerCast. Due to the length of the interview and the utter lack of olivet-news to discuss, we've kept the rest of the episode pretty light this week.In announcements, we're looking for new segments/new helpers with the show, so if you have any ideas or would like to be a part, let me know at shale2@olivet.eduAs an update on those of you waiting for the 4th episode of the's not coming, sorry. Basically, we must have stopped recording before we were actually done, so it awkwardly ends mid-sentence. If you have an insatiable addiction to our cast (which im assuming most of you have) I can e-mail the mp3 of unfinished 'lost chronicle' to you. Lastly, Jessica's email is just in case you didnt catch it in the interview.Cheers,Scott

    So it's day three (saturday) of winter break and we're continuing on with our travel chronicles...sort of.See, basically, it snowed, and my car can't handle that very well, so we weren't able to make it as far north as we wanted...but we can pretend, right?In this episode we talk about what it would be like to be in the UP, interview some locals, and compare the Mackinac bridge to the proposed Olivet bridge.FOR THOSE OF YOU NEW TO THE GLIMMERCAST:If you would like to listen to older episodes, check our blog at .

    GlimmerCast Chronicles Day 2 - Perry, MI


    It's day TWO of the epic GlimmerCast Chronicles as we wind our way through michigan. On today's podcast we explored the small town of Perry, northeast of lansing, Josh bought a donut, and flipped through the latest edition of the glimmerglass.Tomorrow we're getting up early and driving up to Houghton to stay the night at Michigan Tech...we'll be podcasting along the way, and taking a pit stop in Mackinac to interview some locals and see some sights. With any luck I'll find a spare michigan license plate along the way to start building my collection of a license plate from every state.Add us as a fan on facebook (search glimmercast) or check back the blog for photos uploaded soon, and we'll be uploading tomorrow's cast tomorrow night if we have internet access.Enjoy!Scott

    The GlimmerCast Chronicles - Day One


    It's officially winter break and Dustin and I have taken our beloved podcast on the road...more specifically, to Michigan, the U.P., and (later) Wisconsin. Dustin, Myself, and our cohorts Josh Hjort (yort) and Alex Green are taking the computer and microphones (and cameras) everywhere we go, talking about whatever we see. In this episode we make a pit stop in Olivet, MI, and finally land at home "base" in Perry, MI where dustin and Alex reside. We'll be uploading as often as we get the chance and pictures will be forthcoming (I forgot to bring my cable with me, so that will probably wait until we get back to Bourbonnais).Tell your friends!

    GlimmerCast Episode 7 - The Untitled


    Alright! It's been a long Christmas break (and then some extra days off at the end of it) but the GlimmerCast is BACK! We've got some new theme music for our introduction that we've put together, so we hope you like that.Unfortunately, there hasn't been a whole lot going on around Olivet lately (that we really knew about) so we filled a bit of this episode with long overdue movie discussion, so we hope you liked that. Also, in this episodes "If I were in Charge" -- Olivet's Open House Policy.We hope you like the episode, let us know what you think! My e-mail, as always, is, so let us know what's going on in your world, and we'll talk about it.-Scott

    GlimmerCast Episode 6 - The Live One


    Ok so here it is (finally) --our 'live' episode of the glimmercast.Basically, Dustin and I set up shop outside of the comfort of glimmercast studios (aka my apartment) and took our microphones down into the red room on monday, Dec. 8 and recorded our podcast in front of a crowd. If you weren't there it might be hard to track with everything that was going on, so I apologize in advance for the craziness of the audio in the episode. In the future when we do live podcasts we will make sure to set up crowd mics to pick up what other people are saying better, along with organizing the format in a stricter way so we don't get a ton of people talking over one another.Regardless, it was a fun night and we talked about a ton of different stuff to close out the podcasting before break.Here in the next week or so I'm going to record a small episode to tide everyone over until we all return to Olivet in January.Enjoy!-ScottEDIT: It seems that for whatever reason the audio completely tanks after about 18 minutes. I went b

    GlimmerCast Episode 5 - The Call Out


    So it's thanksgiving break and we decided that that's not going to stop us from releasing a new episode of the GlimmerCast.Now, I know last episode we promised to come at you with an interview with Brandon Bauman (of the collapsed lung variety), but we had to rush this episode out the door a little bit. See, usually we record on monday nights, but I decided to sluff off and head home early on friday afternoon so we had to record thursday night instead. I promise you that at some point in the future we WILL have that interview, and various other special correspondences. Additionally, we have gotten quite a bit of feedback lately that I left out of this episode, but I promise that the listener feedback segment will be back in Episode 6.SPEAKING OF EPISODE 6!! It's going to be LIVE! Yes, thats right, we're going to record a live episode in the red room on our regular date of recordings, monday night. This will be Monday, December 8th.Other things to note: Our listener contest is halfway through, and we have 47
