Hyperlinked History - Here, There, and Everywhere by The Faceless Historian

Time for another wild ride through history! This time we begin in Ancient China with a repeating crossbow, explore more northerly kingdoms, invent modern writing, deal with pirates, have a couple of wars, deal with a monarch, meet a legend, and then just maybe we'll give peace a chance.

See, I told you it'd be a heck of a ride. After all we've got to go Here, There, And Everywhere.

An Interview With The Faceless Historian

On one of my previous shows, I talked about Ignite Phoenix and the whole Ignite thing. Among other things, I said it'd be good for librarians to get into something like this because, in five minutes, you can tell a huge group of people all about your library and/or whatever else you're passionate about.

Dani Cutler, a local Phoenix area podcaster, is working on a series of interviews with people who've presented at Ignite Phoenix. She and I sat down at one of the greatest coffee shops in the Valley of the Sun and talked about libraries and the funny things that happen in them, history, Hyperlinked History, and presenting at Ignite.

So if you have the interest, you can hear my alter ego speak with the lovely and intelligent Dani Cutler over on the Ignite Phoenix Podcast site.

Hyperlinked History - Building a Following by The Faceless Historian

Hi all, and welcome to the show!

We're off on a truly globe spanning historical adventure this time as we discuss how Egyptian pyramids, Greek historians, Persian mailmen, butt kissing British poets, international trade, samurai, taxes, Ben Franklin, and pneumonia have to do with the cultish devotion to... a soft drink?

Sure it sounds strange now, but it's really all about Building a Following.

Hyperlinked History Delayed Until Next Week

As they've said in broadcasting for years, "Due to circumstances beyond our control," Hyperlinked History will be delayed until next Thursday. Nothing bad, but among those "circumstances" is the fact that my ISP is having issues and I've not had Internet connectivity at my house for just under 14 hours now.

So I leave you with another timeless (aka ancient) broadcasting phrase: "Tune in next week" to find out how ancient tombs for divine kings links through time and history to another cultish fascination... with a soft drink.

Hyperlinked History- Starting Point by The Faceless Historian

If I'm counting things correctly, this is the tenth episode of Hyperlinked History! Who would've thought I'd squeeze ten episodes out of this thing? I wanted to throw out a quick thank you to all who've listened and I hope you're enjoying the series at least half as much as I enjoy making it. Big thanks to Stephen, Blake, and the gang here at LISNews too! You can't find better folks to work with.

Hyperlinked History To Change Days

I wanted to send out a heads up to the listeners of the LISNews Netcast Network and fans of Hyperlinked History that I will be changing the day I publish the show online. Due to some schedule changes and the madness that is a summer reading programme, this will be a lot easier for me to get a show up regularly.

Starting this week the show will go online every other Thursday around midnight, Eastern Time. For international folks that's Friday 04:00 UTC.

So when you don't see a show online tomorrow morning, you'll know why. Just wait another 24 hours, that's all!

Hyperlinked History- At The Gates by The Faceless Historian

My sincere apologies for the tardiness on this episode. We had a family issue come up that necessitated traveling and the chaos that goes with it, so I'm just now getting it online.

This time around, The Faceless Historian ushers you down the aisle of history with some key stops in (THIS... IS...) Sparta(!). Then he provides a dash of poetry and weird books before introducing you to a daughter and a unicycling scientist. Where does it end? Well, I suppose you could use Google to find out.

Sometimes, you don't even know if there is barbarian At The Gates.

LISNews Netcast Network Programming Advisory

Due to extenuating circumstances beyond our control, Hyperlinked History will be delayed this week. The program will post by Thursday morning UTC at the latest.
