BCC Zeitcast 57: What’s Really Happening In China

Although I swore that this podcast would never see the light of day, public protests and private threats helped me change my mind. In this episode, Matsby and GST join me for a (short) discussion of the Church’s recent talks with Chinese officials.

Sort of.

You see, GST’s microphone didn’t work, so we had to get his commentary over instant message.

  1. You people asked for it. Don’t blame me.

  2. Cynthia L. says:

    Wow, I know I suck when I’m too sucky to make the cut on the sucky zeitcast! Oh man, pour some lemon juice on it.

  3. Cynthia L. says:

    You forgot to announce extra-special guest Stephen Hawking! Wait, isn’t he in the news right now for writing an atheist book.

  4. Cynthia, you never sent me your audio file! Pour your own stinking lemon juice!

  5. Cynthia L. says:

    Oh whoops, my bad.

  6. It may have sucked, but it funny-sucked!

  7. great opener.

  8. GST + Messenger = awesome

  9. It wasn’t THAT bad.

  10. This is embarrassing. Me going on and on (bombing) with weak jokes about a subject Scott isn’t familiar with. The good thing is nobody’s going to listen to it

  11. The good news is I’m prepared for throat cancer.

  12. Yeah, none of us are listening to it even as we type. Take comfort in the knowledge that this is funnier than it would be if I were ever on a Zeitcast.

  13. I hope you appreciate that I refer to the capital of China as Peking. It took me years to switch over from Peiping.

  14. Who knew Stephen Hawking was funny.

  15. Latter-day Guy says:

    14, He was a scream on Family Guy… though now I wonder if that might have been just an impersonator.

  16. I think if a Speak&Spell were used as the voice of GST, it would give the zeitcast a real edge. Consider it for next time.

  17. StillConfused says:

    Tik Tok on the side blog is awesome. Just sayin

  18. Cynthia L. says:

    Tik Tok was on fmhJanet’s facebook wall, and I knew it must immediately be shared as widely as possible.

  19. Yep, that TOS Tic Tok is brilliant.

  20. You know, I listened to this podcast finally (against my better judgment), and I noticed a couple of mistakes.

    1. I never introduced GST. This is because I introduced him during the first 1/2 hour, when SB2 was on, and forgot to do it again after she left.

    2. We only got 4 of Matt’s Top 5 list. I don’t know how I managed to skip one, but I think we did.

    Of course, these mistakes pale in comparison to the larger mistake of trying to keep recording after GST’s mic failed to work.

  21. gst carries the day (with the able assistance of some text-to-speech software)!

    I’m not sure I understand any better what’s happening in China after listening, however. In fact, I’m more confused.

  22. Well, I did listen to the whole thing.

  23. Stephanie,
    You have my condolences.

  24. Scott… Dude… Sigh.

    On the bright side, Michael Jackson got regularized and it worked for him…

  25. It was glorious.
