Is it working? Do we have contact? Holding steady? Good!

Hey, folks. We’ve managed to get the Wayback Machine up again and we’re ready for another trip into podcasting’s past. This time we are headed to February 20th, 2011 and the release of Galley Table Episode Twenty-Three. This episode features special guest Dan Sawyer sharing his expertise at story telling for film and audio and some of the lessons he has learned in making his living with writing. Fortunately Dan is an interesting and entertaining conversationalist so it doesn’t come off as a dry lecture. In fact I think this is one of the funnest Galley Table episodes we’ve ever done.

And, of course, I’ve pulled out some fun highlights of the show:

  • “He is having babies, so he is qualified now.”
  • “It was the most annoying voice I’ve ever heard.” “Oh, Gilbert Godfrey.”
  • “I hate to make this the Nathan Lowell show, but…”
  • “Life is too short for that. I’ve got a lot of stories to tell.”
  • “You need to go into it thinking, even if this fails, am I better off in the long run than if I hadn’t done it at all.”
  • “Expect to fail, then any success is just gravy!”
  • “There is a difference between getting a return and getting money.”
  • “I’m going to start writing to day because in a couple of years I’m going to be a Mid-List Author!”
  • “Writers, like all artists, tend to be spectacularly poor at business.”
  • “We think of these as our babies but not as our products.”
  • “You have to raise your darlings and then sell them off for scientific experiments.”
  • “Never hire anyone to do a job you couldn’t do if you needed to.”
  • “I’m not always in the same mood as the story.”
  • “Anyone who gets on top tends to want to become the next Jim Jones.”
  • “I almost got arrested bringing tea through an airport on the way to Balticon.”
  • “And they still didn’t think of bringing the drug sniffy dogs!”
  • “The guards were all around him, but he disarmed them with his tongue.”
  • “I have a large cranial capacity.”
  • “I want to hear more hat talk!”
  • “I’ve heard you should mainline these podcasts before showing up.”
  • “It’s what I get for being a stowaway.”
  • “Stop violating the laws of physics, dammit!”
  • “He has an old soul he keeps in a jar.”
  • “You are a veritable font of bad television.”
  • “Edit that out, my brain skipped a track.”
  • “Maybe I need to drink more.”

I hope you enjoy listening to the episode. Everyone, have a good weekend, and hopefully we’ll get the Wayback Machine to fire up again next Monday.
