Disney Buys Lucas - Dork Summit #1



It's the first ever "Dork Summit"!! With the Universe size announcement of Disney buying Lucas Film, Dorktown needed to podcast, fast. So Mikey gathered fellow Star Wars dorks, Bryan Harley, Roque Rodriquez and Lefty Brown to talk about the Disney buyout of Lucas, what the new Star Wars films might look like, what could be added to Disneyland, a beef with TheForce.Net, will Lucas give back to the Central Valley and more dorkness. It's not a Dorktown, it's a Dork Summit!

DORKTOWN'S TOP PODCASTS FROM OCTOBER, 2012

Big change up to Dorktown's Top Podcasts lists. We've really been getting deeper into 'indie' podcasts. So much in fact that we felt the need to expand it out to a top 25 instead of top 10. More exposure to more podcast can't be a bad thing, yeah? We kept the 'mainstream' at 10 because, hey, they really don't need the help from little ol' us. Still we like showing what we're listening to. Also, we graduated Doodie Calls to the Mainstream pods - figured they're getting big enough to be mainstream now.

    Dorktown's Top Podcasts From September, 2012

    What are the top podcasts Dorktown listened to and enjoyed during September 2012? Well the indie podcasts are becoming stronger and stronger and more interesting. Not a lot of change to this month's mainstream list. Let's have a look at them both.

    In mainstream, the continuing storyline of "Emo Kev" gave Smodcast a big boost this month. But Ear Candy was able to hold it off as they are trying some new formatting and beginning to post two shows a week. WTF has fallen into a bit of a rut at the moment, it'll be interesting to see if it comes back on continues to slide.

    DORKTOWN MAINSTREAM PODCAST TOP TEN - SEPTEMBER, 2012
    1. Ear Candy 
    2. Smodcast
    3. Todd Glass
    4. Professor Blastoff
    5. Nerdist
    6. Mohr Stories
    7. WTF - With Marc Maron
    8. ESPN Fantasy Underground
    9. You Made It Weird
    10. The Session
    Others receiving votes: The Duncan Trussell Family Hour, Metal Comedy Midgets.

    In indie, keeping the #1 spot is a show about taking a crap...yep. But Firnecast is still knocking at the door. And look out for Tiny Odd Conversations as they were featured in iTunes "New and Noteworthy" which launched them into the Top 30 of comedy podcasts on iTunes. Crazy stuff. We may have to put them on the Mainstream List if this keeps up.

    Dorktown Top Ten: Podcasts For May

    Dorktown has decided to start a monthly list of what podcasts the Dorktown Podcast crew and select Dorktown listeners have been enjoying (or not enjoying) over the past month. We'll try and average them out the best we can and rank them - although I'm pretty bad at math so don't freak the fuck out if you think something should be ranked higher. It'll be a combo of amount of listening and enjoyment from said listening.

    There will be a Overall Top Ten and a (since we are/love local and indie) Indie Top Ten. And so we're clear, if you're a regular iTunes Top 100-er and/or are part of a major podcast network and have a sponsor (basically if Stamps.com is mentioned on your podcast), then you aint indie (and you probably don't give two shiz about if you're ranked here).

    So let's give this a shot.

    -Mikey

    1. Todd Glass

    6. The Duncan Trussell Family Hour
    7. Professor Blastoff

    There's a lot more I personally listen to and Dorktown contributors listen to, but that's the top for last month. Hey, if you have a suggestion of what Dorks should be listening or not listening to, leave a comment or email mike@dorktown.net. This feature will be back at the end of June with a new Top Ten.

    Dorks In 60 Years - Dorktown #114


    It happened once over at DI60Y: two local fowl-mouthed and swarthy podcasters coming together on one episode. You would have thought these two would've learned from that episode never to 'cross streams' again - too much shit talking for one person's ears to take.
    They did not learn. In this episode of Dorktown, a majority of the DI60Y crew joins Bells, Mikey and Producer B in the Dork studio for a meta local podcast. There's talk of:
    • Bullard parties.
    • Podcast history lessons.
    • DI60Y's beginnings.
    • The crews current local video project, Who Eats Brunch.
    • How do you get free beer?
    • REMOTE: More meta podcasting with the Married Gamers.
    • Manchester Barhouse. 
    • Getting in trouble from podcasting.
    • Local celeb loving and bashing.
    • Will DI60Y make a Swede this time?
    • Pagers ruled.
    • FONZY EYYS.
    Everybody has regrets after this one. You should totally listen.

    Josh & Jaime - Dorktown #105C

    A long running joke on Dorktown is that the engineer/co-host sucks at engineering - and hosting but that's a whole other thing. Sadly this joke isn't written in or on purpose. Random bad audio just seems to happen on the podcast. Mics not working, random buzzing, levels all over the place and even the occasional deleted show.

    Well that's what happened to the Original Dorktown #105, with guest Joshua Tehee. Somehow it got deleted. So Josh was nice enough to come back a week later and record it again... half way through, the file imploded on itself and THAT was deleted, but in a whole NEW way. So what you're (hopefully) going to listen to now is the second half or third attempt at #105-C.


    In this episode you'll hear:

    • Bells and Mikey hanging with Joshua Tehee and Jaime Holt as they talk about their band and how they're playing Fulton 55 Monday night as a fundraiser for Cat House On The Kings.
    • One of the "members" of Mr. Rude calls in.
    • Josh & Jaime play live.
    • Is there somewhere to go on the Fulton Mall?
    • What's a merkin?
    • Josh & Jaime make a big radio related - EXCLUSIVE to Dorktown - announcement.
    • FRESNO "OR GAME".
    • A Fresno FAX story.
    • How did Dorktown get its lame name?
    • Fonzy Eyyys.
