1/20/2006 - My feet are in Boston, my blog in New York, but my heart is in New Zealand
Among the best podcasts I have listened to so far is a serial called Claybourne. Doled out in 5 minute segments...
[Note - the incredible variety of range of lengths of podcasts is one of the merits of this new media. It's available whether you have an hour, or 20 minutes or 5 minutes to kill]
...it is the story of a typical Yank (read: American) who finds himself traveling from the foreign culture of New Zealand to the far more foreign culture of the Maori (the native New Zealanders).
I haven't progressed too far into it, but here's what I like so far:
- It is produced, with a soundtrack and some special effects
- They do the tease well, where they unveil just enough each episode, be it about the spookiness or the relationships.
Definitely worth the 5 minutes.
14,100 suspense filled steps today. Cheers,
PS - More than my heart may be in New Zealand. I f memory serves, the Happy Kiwi is there as well...
