I am so very happy to share with the CB community my new podcast entitles Shackles, Burlap, & Lies. It's dedicated to entertainment rigging and the people in it. The intent is to bring experienced riggers and their stories to the masses and try to demystify the realm of rigging.

There are two episodes currently published. Episode 00 is an introduction. Episode 01 features my friend Yanna Kiriacopoulos, a rigger originally from RI who is now living in the Netherlands. We talk about how she got into the biz, what tours she has done, and a whole lot of other topics.

Please take a listen. PLEASE provide feedback via what ever platform you listen on. And please pass this along to your friends.

I hope you all enjoy the listen!

Ethan

You’re welcome! I recognize the into is a little hot, and my guests might not always have the best mic as we have to record via social distance platforms. But it can only get better right. At least from a fidelity standpoint, content could go in the tank.

I listened to episode 1 today. Passed it on to the women in my department. As soon as Yanna started talking about being short and rigging, I knew which former protege (who has also gigged with Cirque) HAD to listen. I’m 6’2”, and training Megan (5’2”) made me have to adapt and re-evaluate my training methods for a certain sailing ship we climb.

I just finished listening to the first two episodes and loved them! Nicely done Ethan!
Is there a way for a decrepit, non Cell equipped, geezer to listen / watch Pod casts on his WIN 10 / Google Chrome desktop PC?
Toodleoo!

THANK YOU! It's 1:36 a.m.; I've listened from 0 through 2 non-stop, appreciated, learned, enjoyed, and I'm still chortling about why riggers' brains sell for 20 times the cost of electricians' brains. I'm retired from the IBEW and I'm sitting here thinking how many people I need to e-mail that to before I can get any sleep tonight. I'm sorely tempted to plow on into #3 but I suppose I ought to save something for later today.

It's been great to put a brain, personality and voice to the name.
Toodleoo!

@RonHebbard any podcast that has their act together has a website and the ability to then listen to them directly from the site is pretty common. Sometimes there is even bonus material on the site.

One of my favorite podcasts is "99% Invisible" it's about the oddities and hidden bits of design and life. Listen to these three to get a sense of how wide ranging and fascinating the show is :

I'm subscribed and enjoying the podcast as well.

Google Podcasts doesn't always automatically download it though.
