We Have a Technical #3: A Friggin' Academy Award
Alright kids, here’s the third installment of ID:UD’s new podcast! It looks as though our new podcast hosting platform is up and running, so we should be able to keep episodes of We Have a Technical coming without worrying about snapping the blog’s regular hosting plan all Macho Man Slim Jim style. This week, we talk about the much ballyhooed return LP from Nine Inch Nails, Hesitation Marks, as well as the new EP from Caustic, Coprophagia/Consummatia. There’s also some talk at the end about the recently announced seventh Festival Kinetik, and the role that we’ll be playing in it. Stream from the fancy player below, or download from this link right here!
As always, we’re keen to hear what you have to say about this new dimension of the ID:UD experience, so leave any and all comments or suggestions in the comments section below, or fire us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
0:00: Our theme music is “Black Cross (Dead When I Found Her Remix)” by ∆AIMON, available from Artoffact records.

Have to say that hearing the intro music was a lovely surprise, loved that remix, and the whole “Flatliner” album, ever since I first heard it (which was probably because you recommended it). 😛
Great podcast generally, too.
Thanks for listening! We love that that mix nicely communicates key aspects of both bands (both of which we love and always want to support).
i’ve looked up and down the page about (let’s estimate) 3 times, and i still can’t find a GODDAMN LINK TO SUBSCRIBE TO THE FUCKING PODCAST. it says “podcast” up there. it says. there’s even an ever-loving libsyn link. but NO RSS WITH AUDIO ENCLOSUREs. help.
Our apologies! We’re in the process of getting the podcast vetted by iTunes, which should hopefully help. The hardcoded “podcast” link at the top seems to have trouble displaying content from more than one WordPress cat…which wasn’t really an issue when we were only doing mixtapes, not podcasts. We’ll be addressing that when we and our webmaster give the site a do over in the next month or so. As for RSS, we’re brand-spanking new to libsyn, but we should be able to get that sussed shortly; keep an eye on the Twitter.
…Okay, here’s an RSS feed!
I AM TOTALLY FUCKING SUBSCRIBED NOW. glad you made it an actual podcast. (subscriptions are pretty much the only way I’m delivered episodes of *any* show.) Having it on iTunes is nice, too, but it’s not the way I discover podcasts, to offer but one example case. Having the feed link on your site, and linking to the site in a twitter post sealed it for me. and thanks very much for the nice reply, Bruce.
