However, with the National Podcast Post Month in full swing, I just ran out of room. I am going to host the remaining shows elsewhere and post links where you can download them if you like, or if you are a subscriber, you can wait around until I get more freed-up space and these last four shows will then turn up one-by-one on your podcatcher. You may not even notice the lapse.

At any rate, thank you for listening to my silly little show! I love you guys.

Out of Room!
It has been suggested that I come up with another hosting site for the other four remaining NaPodPoMo shows and then post a link once I set them up, so that's what I am going to do. I am strongly considering using Podshow, as Madge from Yeast Radio suggested.

Rest assured, the four remaining shows will be brought back into the Libsyn RSS feed once there is room here for them, so if you are listening to Coffee and Tea Show from iTunes, Zune, or another podcatcher, the shows will just show up a few days late for you.

The whole point of the National Podcast Post Month though is to actually create and post a show every day in November, with nothing said about it being all on the same feed, so technically this is okay. If anyone else has any suggestions though, be sure to leave me some comments. This is really sort of an emergency. But not really.

We talk about Maia going to camp in a swamp, where she deals with large and small frogs, makes track molds and examines owl pellets.

Next we play "Swamp Dingo" by Kevin Christensen, from his album Portion of Space.

Maia has so many things she wants to do. She wants guitar lessons. Also canoeing. Also start babysitting, though Maia will not deal with diapers--baby nor adult. Also watch a lot of anime and play some games.

We got our music tonight from Podshow Podsafe Music Network. We are proud affiliates of and Georgia Podcast Network.

And now here's a podsafe version of "For What It's Worth" by Buffalo Springfield from the Monterey International Pop Festival, recorded 40 years ago during the Summer of Love! Thanks to their label Razor & Tie for making this wonderful recording available.

My daughter says she's having a wonderful time in Costa Rica. She mentioned the deadly Fer-de-lance, which is common where she's staying. I need some monkey photos.

My first song is "Daylight" by The Shakes.

My cat Casper has never been neutered. We never let him out though, so we don't feel all that guilty about it. But now he wants to have a sexy time with my leg. I pushed him away so he peed on my purse and got my wallet, camera case, iRiver case all wet. I can't get the smell out.

A guy hit on me at the international grocery store. That was strange. Nobody hits on me.

I like that store because I can get Pocky, teas, little cookies called Colon Cream, fried pea pods. Today I got some biscuits called Cafeteria Pie.

The Mooney Suzuki performs "99%" from their album Have Mercy.

My Rockypod partner Sean and I are starting a new podcast to alternate with Rocky Horror Pod Show. We haven't completely worked out all the details.

I'm Laura and I'm flying solo tonight. I go off on an emo rant about being exhausted and overworked and problems coworkers are having. Ignore my whining and scratchy voice.


Coffee and Tea Show is back from hiatus and will probably be a mostly solo show from now on, since Sasha and Dwight are otherwise occupied. When they can be on the show, they will be.

CATS is less than one month shy of being a year old. Hard to believe!


A rant about how my brilliant daughter, who is studying the rain forest in Costa Rica, can't write letters.

I play a love song from my buddy, the UK musician and podcaster Graham Holland, which I got from Podshow Podsafe Music Network - "I Breathe Again" is a love song and I felt it was a great choice because I really love you guys.

Man... Blog post Wed, 7 Mar 2007 04:43:00 GMT Laura, Dwight and Sasha No CATS 022007: Pidders, and other things
In this episode Sasha and Laura start out talking about computers. Sasha is learning to use her new Mac laptop. Laura has problems with her computer freezing up when it goes to MySpace, which is lame. There are, of course, more rants about angry sweaters. Old school modems are discussed, such as on that movie You Got Mail, a movie we both sort of hate. Sasha looks for free WiFi.

Sasha was looking at Little Pageant Girl Photoshoppery before she started recording. Sasha used to Photoshop her face into random family portraits. Laura used to worry that Sasha was sad and wistful when she used to do that. Sasha said she used to join Live Journal Rate-Me communities but Laura thought she said "Rape Me communities." Possibly this is a Nirvana reference.

Why do people like MySpace when Live Journal is so much better and easier to use?
MySpace is now even making its way into bathroom graffiti.

Wouldn't it be ironic if TrimSpa was Anna Nicole's killer? Britney is now the designated crazy white trash celebrity. Sasha is in a really easy class this semester with tests involving Britney and K-Fed. Laura explained to Dwight why she calls Quiznos "Jizz-nos."

There's a new yuppie-urban Walmart nearby. Weird.

CATS 021107: Sean from Rockypod visits and rants
Sean visits from Rockypod and rants about the sort of people who go to adult cons, people who buy all kinds of bling and can't afford to buy good clothes for their kids, people who rice up their car from stuff they buy at Pep Boys, people who have sex with plushies, Apple, Georgia's car tax, etc. Don't be offended!

Sasha will be in the next show.

Today's music is from "Goth Chick" by Baron Von Lichtenstein (aka Jim Stiene) from his album "Banned By The Ass Clown Regime." You can find his MySpace here.

Sasha has an old man sweater and it angers up her blood. It riles her and makes her feel like a jerk. She's also in a bad mood because of house hunting. A house they looked at had mildew on the walls.

Sasha and Laura are heading off to go to see LDOD play Rocky Horror at Plaza Theater with Rusty and Amber from Georgia Podcast Network. Rusty is to lose his Rocky virginity.

Sasha's getting plenty of hours at her job but Laura's job is pretty skimpy on hours lately.

Sasha brings up The Road to El Dorado. (Laura and Sean actually "reviewed" that movie on Rockypod earlier.)

Different LiveJournal communities are brought up: porn_macros, bad_porn_2, wtf_omgz, stupid_free, getoffmyspace.

Laura just opened a MySpace for Podcamp Atlanta and a LiveJournal community as well.

Sasha's enjoying Photobucket.

Laura brings up Coffee and Tea Show's Google hits, namely "Penis," "Crush" and "Torture." Sasha thinks we should blog "inflation fetish." Sasha finds Coffee and Tea Show under "Sasha's Mom."

Sasha inscribed her 4th generation iPod with the phrase: "I'll never get an iPod."

Some people are calling the new Apple iPhone the Jesus Phone. We'll never afford it anyway.

Laura plays "Jack Attack" by the band Don't Harass Betty, from their self-titled album.

Laura and Sasha then try to wake up Carmen, who listens to this show.

The final music is by Stephanie Harger, who sings "The Thought of You."

Today's music is from Podsafe Music Network.

Our opening number is from DJ Bunnyboy, who kindly created the Javaman mix for Laura for her birthday back in August. It was time to dust it off and replay it. Awesome, isn't it?

Anyway, it's our 30th episode! Happy New Year! And thank goodness the holidays are over because its been rough.

Sasha went to a new year party but they forgot to drink. Laura stayed home with her family and watched all the episodes of Firefly with her daughter Halley. She thought they were "cute" but Sasha says Laura will be attacked by Browncoats for that.

We tell our resolutions. Sasha reveals she doesn't like piercers or dentists.

We're starting in one corner of the yard and rolling it up like carpet, pulling up roots as we go. It's slow going and we are all very sore and scraped up. It's a lot of hard work for four out-of-shape people. If we were less scrupulous and had more money, we'd be tempted to hire some of the men who hire themselves out as day laborers.

We just ate some pizza and took a little break, but now it's back to the yardwork. Any tips to make this go easier? Can we just compost the ivy or do we need to bag it up and carry it to the curb?

CATS 112806: Bah Humbug A big thanks to George Hrab for the intro.

I'm Laura and I'm doing the show without Dwight or Sasha tonight.

I don't like Christmas. It's just a lot of pressure and I fail at Christmas traditions, besides I'm not religious. I do like other holidays though.

I play "Christmas Here on Mars" by the girl group Bubble from the EP Bubble & Black Halos Xmas 2001.

Even though this podcast is called The Coffee and Tea Show, it is more of a comedy discussion and indie music show. But we do drink coffee and/or tea during production. Tonight I am drinking Kroger store brand coffee. Why? Cuz I am broke. However, I did grind the beans, so nyah!

I play the great Texas blues piece "Coffee Man" by Calvin Owens from his album The House Is Burnin'.

We had a really good Thanksgiving with the inlaws. No problems. We're all fat and happy.

I play "Honey-Bee" from the Scottish singer Super 8 from his album Daysaver.

The music I played tonight comes from Podshow Podsafe Music Network. Coffee and Tea Show is a member of and, so check them all out!

Podcast Listening Recommendation! Noisely.  I wondered what that was and was really impressed.

It's a web-based player from the podcast directory YouLoud. You go to the site and type a few words of your interests, and the site does the rest. This would be a good way to try out some podcasts and have something playing while you do other work on your computer.

I am very impressed. Does anyone else have any other easy-peasey sources for podcast listeners like this?

CATS 112106: Voter fraud, Bible verses and yummy Thankgiving food This show was recorded way back on November 5th, but computer problems (i.e. bad power supply) precluded editing the show and uploading it in a timely manner. In fact, we haven't been able to record Coffee and Tea Show for a while! But hopefully everything has been taken care of and we'll soon be back to a regular recording schedule. We really missed you guys!

Tonight's show consists of our guest podcaster Daniel, Dwight and Laura.

We start out with a discussion of possible voter fraud due to electronic voting.

First song: "Liberty Jones" by The Shakes.

Our next topic of discussion is Fundamentalism. Also what is our favorite Thanksgiving food. We discuss our favorite Bible verses because we're wacky like that. Daniel points out that the Bible was polytheistic at first. Green bean casserole is pretty darn good. According to the Bible you shouldn't mix fabrics and you should have blue tassels. Who wants a vibrating shaver? Everyone must miss Sasha so much. Chestnuts are pretty nice.

Laura has been enjoying the Hellbound Alleee podcast lately. It's a smart pro-secular-thought show with quirky music in the Mondo Diablo episodes.

Suddenly a demon is summoned.

The Coffee and Tea Show is part of and Podsafe Music Network supplied tonight's musical interludes.

Last song: "Coffee Shop" by Smallfish from their album What If.

If you miss the sound of my voice, you can always catch Sean and me on Rockypod because I am still trying to get that show online through hook or crook, but this show is my baby--my first podcast--and it feels neglected. I haven't called Sasha to see if she wants to record lately because of the computer issues.

Once you start podcasting regularly you start thinking about it all the time. You want to save your stories for the show. You listen to people tell you things because you want to pass those tales on. I feel like we have so much to say but someone slapped duct tape over our mouths.

Anyway, I have a couple of people lined up as guests on the show as soon as I can confirm a time to get together with them. I think you'll like them!

My computer is down and has been for about two weeks. I am waiting for a new power supply to come in (it has been hard to find one--the computer is a 1999 Sawtooth Mac G4 and there were 2 versions of the power supply made for that year. Needless to say, pricey as well.).

I do have a show in the works but haven't been able to post it or even get to it. Sasha's been very busy with school and hasn't been able record for a while but Dwight and his friend Daniel helped me record a show.

Bear with me folks, and keep subscribed. I love you all and miss you.

Life as a bohobo Today I went to the grocery store where a little boy pointed me out to his mother and said, "Momma, Halloween is over and that lady still has her Halloween costume on."

But I feel pretty good though because right before that a lady came up to me and asked me what color my hair was because it was so beautiful.

We're going to be working on Podcamp Atlanta today at 9:00 Eastern with an online meetup. We wanted face-to-face at Java Monkey in Decatur, but that was nixed because so many of the organizers live way north of there. I think that some of us still plan to meet there next Sunday though.

I can hardly wait. We plan to have Podcamp in March, though details are still being worked out. Anyone in the south who either has a show or wants to start a podcast would do well to attend this free event.

Circumstances have been such that I haven't been able to get this show edited and online until now. I apologize. However, this is our 25th show! Who'da thunk?

This is a pets episode. Laura had two dogs and a bunch of rats (42) die recently.

Sasha tells about her pet dove Phineas Gage. She had a red claw crab named Crunchy Pete, who died fairly recently.

Laura's grandfather forced her family to have quails when they were kids. Laura isn't sure why.

Sasha had an aunt who would kill and eat pet chickens that had names. This reminds Laura and Sasha of how traumatic it is to pick out a live lobster to eat (Laura is glad to be a vegetarian.).

Laura's daughter Halley bit a small fish when she was little.

Laura's cat bothered everyone because she wanted to sleep on top of the monitor since the house was cold. She complained throughout the show.

Sasha's dad stepped on a goldfish once.

Laura used to play with baby turtles at a Kresge's dime store in East Tennessee in the early '60s when she was a little kid unless the clerks yelled at her.

Sasha liked to harass parakeets at Woolworth's.

Sasha doesn't like to pet potbelly pigs. Sturgeon are good to pet. Laura likes it when minnows nibble on you in mountain streams.

Canada geese and swans are intimidating.

A discussion about the children's section at Zoo Atlanta.

Short intro, due to having to pick up Maia. Don't worry folks, Sasha's still around. She's been really busy with work and finals.

Does anyone have any experience with editing really long sound pieces? We have a three-hour recording from Sasha that needs to be edited down and don't know if any of our software will even open it.

Our first song from is "Greasy Coffee Beans" by Robert Morgan Fisher from his album Follow a Hunch.

Halley is going on a trip to Costa Rica possibly.

We discuss Project Runway. That show is full of outrageous product placement and nasty accusations.

Laura redyed her hair. It is now burgandy and purple.

Dwight is eating diabetic candy and is in danger of getting the trots.

Our friend Daniel calls. He discusses a book he's writing. We heard from our friend Ray in Eugene, Oregon who is planning to marry his latest prisoner girlfriend. Daniel is a prison nurse, so he knows a lot about it. Daniel now is trying out Linux because we all agree we hate Windows Genuine Advantage. We also diss Republicans. The call ends in a barrage of bad jokes.

We haven't been able to record too many episodes lately because nobody can get together at the same time. Also Laura's working on Rocky Horror Pod Show which has a far stricter release schedule.

We're going to Clermont Lounge to celebrate Sasha's birthday tonight. If I can get a recording, I'll post it at the end (and indeed it is!).

Laura and Coffee and Tea Show got a great mention on Graham Holland's "It's a Frogs Life Acoustic Podcast" episode 6. Laura got a "Golden Graham" award. Heh heh.

Laura's old dog Shadow died on Friday. He had been getting old and sick and Laura waited until she was sure to take him to the vet to be put down and then it was too late. Laura tells stories about Shadow.

Tonight's music from is "Diatomaceous Earth" from The Blue Vagrants on their album Some Kind of Paradise.

Tonight, we have a visitor in the studio: Sasha's buddy Kaitee. The show is therefore totally out of control, you may notice.

Sasha's sunburn.

Backlit portraits are for sale on Buford Highway. Also, Twin Tower pictures with clouds that look like spaceships are available for purchase there as well.

Sasha's desire to wear Kaitee's skin is brought up.

CATS 091206: Travel time! Much of this show was recorded while stuck in a horrific rainy traffic jam in Buckhead. Gah, it was dreadful. But we recorded a lot of it in the car.

In traffic, we talk about how hungry we are, the state of grocery stores in Atlanta, point out sex shops and other stores, look for places to eat (we eventually eat at Taco Bell), and sing.

Finally we get back and talk about bikes we had as kids and what our bikes looked like. Laura tells about her mom's WWII-era burning desire for a bike and how she couldn't get one due to steel rationing.

This leads us to 9/11/01. Dwight was working server support at that time and the folks at the World Trade Center were big customers. Sasha tells about freaky 9/11 commemorative coins she saw on TV. Right after 9/11, many patriotic Americans hung flags on their cars but left them there so long the flags were faded and shredded, which IMHO is disrespectful. Sasha brings up flags on clothing and Laura tells about the Reuters photos of George and Laura Bush stepping on the flag carpet, apparently grinding the flag under their heels. Ahem, Mr. President.

We then admire a statuette of a Canadian mountie we have in the studio. We are all about the awesomeness of Jodhpur pants.

It's a wonder we reached adulthood!

Sasha found a book on Victorian games by Patrick Beaver called The Victorian Parlor Game Book which you can find on Amazon. We have a section called Victorians Play the Darndest Games. Two games Sasha found particularly hilarious: Poor Pussy and Guessing Blind Man.

More discussion on the original Volkswagon Beetle and then we play "Emma's Urban Friend" from 50 Dollar Fine, which was Chris Hoover's old band.

This show was originally recorded before Dragon*con.

In this episode, a kitchen mishap forces us to venture out to eat dinner and podcast at the same time. We choose to eat at Elwood's Pizza in Brookhaven, a neighborhood in Atlanta a little north of Buckhead on Peachtree. Fantastic 'za! Check out their website. Go.

It's kind of noisy there and you hear us chewing and talking at the same time. What a great show! Hee hee!

We discuss what we did over the weekend, which was Dragon*con, of course. Sasha went as a hugging pirate and became famous for that. She went to a pirate party and hung out with her pirate homies. Yar!

Laura worked security operations and when she was off, she went to podcasting panels and saw the first annual Parsec awards. She took in panels on women podcasters, podcasting fiction and tools of the trade as well. Derek and Swoopy of Skepticality did a great job.

Sasha had a great time with the exception of creepy guys who bothered her on Sunday night. They made her nervous. Why do these guys think that girls enjoy feeling threatened? Are they stupid?


Mad props and give a listen to these fine podcasts: Tag in the Seam, Georgia Podcast Network: Mostly ITP, Four Minute Warning, Skepticality, Mikeypod, Geek Fu Action Grip...oh, that's enough for now. Also listen to Rocky Horror Pod Show, Laura's other podcast.

Tonight's topic is nature.

Sasha, Dwight and Laura come up with a strange performance, where each writes separately and then they put it all together. Then we all argue about who did the worst job on the play.

By the way, you should never trust pandas.

Muffinbread 02 A new Muffinbread is up! Call (206) 338-6194 to leave a comment for Maia-- I'm sure she'd appreciate it.

Like the first Muffinbread, this episode is family-friendly. Maia came up with the story and wrote it all, though she and Sasha improvised quite a bit.

In this episode, Muffinbread falls asleep and has a strange dream, in which the monkey Blueberry can talk-- with a British accent. Well, at least as much of an accent as Madonna. Blueberry's voice is a lot like Sasha's after a bender.

Muffinbread is unable to fly in her dream.

In a musical sequence, Maia leads Sasha and Halley on a musical journey exploring her eyebrow. The song is dirgelike and mournful. You may become depressed. I know I did.

CATS 080406: Mixed Bag of Baconaise Voice Mail: 206-338-6194

We were asked by a guy on MySpace to post more pictures of ourselves. Sasha came over and we took at lot of photos in the emo teen MySpace style. I posted them on our MySpace Pics if you want to go look at them. You have to be a member to see them. I don't make the rules!

Last Saturday, after Rocky Horror, we all went to IHOP, as is our habit. I brought the iRiver and this is the result. On this you'll hear mostly Sasha and Jevocas, with Hoover, Matt, Connie the waitress and me. Please excuse the poor sound quality.

We have a winner of the sound effects contest. Let me know who you are so you can get your prize.

Tonight's music is "Woolly Mammoth" by Robert Farrell, from his album Sun House Fury. This can be found at

Tonight's topic is brother-in-laws and other folks you can count on to use their skills to help you out of a jam.

Sasha needs a brother-in-law who's a hitman. Another handy one would be a lawyer, one who runs a handy meth lab and would let you buy your meth at cost, and one who is a movie producer.

Topic changes to Laura, Dwight, Halley and Maia's trip to Alaska, where Laura suffered a case of mistaken identity.

Laura tells a dirty joke.

Laura and Sasha are going to Dragon*con this year and hope to meet other podcasters. For the first time, there is a Podcasting Track.

The Sound Effects Contest appears to be a bust, but you can still get your MP3s in by August 1 to win.

Tonight's musical guest: Mean Gene Kelton and The Diehards sing "My Baby Don't Wear No Panties" from their album "Most Requested." They are brought to you by and have been getting a lot of attention on the internets lately. Check them out.

Muffinbread 01 This is a special podcast made by Laura and Dwight's youngest daughter Maia, with help by Sasha and Maia's older sister Halley. We haven't figured out a good way to host or promote this yet, but we think it's fantastic and want everyone to hear it.

Maia is 11 years old and is going into the sixth grade. She made the opening music in Apple Garageband 3 and recorded herself singing the lyrics she wrote three times and then mixing the tracks together. She also wrote and directed the episode, though Sasha did some improv with the Nana Gatt character. Halley sang backup and edited the piece.

Maia has created half of another episode and has some ideas for other podcasts. She would love some feedback-- either here, on the MySpace, via email at or from the CATS listener line (206) 338-6194. Any feedback we receive we'll pass on to her.

Thanks for listening!

CATS 070806: A Modest Proposal Voicemail: (206) 338-6194

Recently, the secret documents of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, the Columbine killers were revealed to the Denver Post under the Freedom of Information Act. They are quite chilling to everyone who reads them, which of course leads us to reading Jonathan Swift's dark satire "A Modest Proposal" when we were all in school.

We all come up with ways to cynically reduce the population, to reduce the poor so the rich can prosper. Remember, this is satire, folks!


Our sound effects contest continues. We need your wacked- out sound effects! Please send them to our email address at The files need to be in MP3 format. The contest is only open to folks 18 and up, though if you are younger, you still can send in your MP3-- you just won't win the prize, which is 80s-era VHS-format Korean dollar store porn, only watched once! For that matter, the prize will only be sent in the continental US.

Some music provided tonight is from the Podshow Podsafe Music Network. Check it out at Tonight's artist is George Hrab, performing "She Suffers From Superlatives" from his album "Interrobang."

CATS 070506: Retro Strippers Voicemail: (206) 338-6194

Laura, Dwight, Sasha, and our friend Michael took Halley to the infamous Atlanta strip club The Clermont Lounge for Halley's 21st birthday. The strippers there are famous for not having regular stripper looks--there are ladies of all ages, weights, state of inking and birth genders performing there. It's great! We'll go again and bring listeners along as well!

We're announcing a contest in which listeners create sound effects in MP3 format and email them to us at The winner will receive some 80s softcore porn we bought at a Korean dollar store and only watched once. It's called "Foxy Blondes, Brunettes, and Redheads." We believe it was filmed in the mid-eighties and it is in VHS format, naturally. So the contest is only open to 18-and-up and is limited to the continental United States. The winner will be announced in August. We'll play everything we receive, though.

Tonight's music is from Beau Hall and is called "Superhot Lady Cop." It comes to us from the Podshow Podsafe Music Network.

Was Screech in a fight with Danny Bonaduce? Sasha loved David Duchovny. Sasha loved David Bowie from Labyrinth. Dwight liked Danny Bonaduce? He loved Darryl Hannah. Actually he loved Jane Fonda in Klute. He loved Rachael Welch in One Million Years B.C. Sasha crushed on Billy Corgan. She once saw a cop at Marietta Diner who resembled him.

What is a crush?

Dwight's penis is brought up, again.

Atlanta's Gay Pride parade is better than Atlanta's 4th of July and Christmas Parades. Sasha danced with a drag queen.
