200. A taste of the show

This week’s show gives you a taste of the live 12 hour marathon that took place to celebrate the 200th Boagworld.

Unless you have been completely ignoring me for the last few weeks, you will know that on the 12th February we streamed a marathon 12 hour live show to celebrate the 200th episode of the boagworld podcast.

Us recording the 200th Boagworld

It was an amazing time with an incredible line up of guests. Everybody was incredibly enthusiastic to be involved and I want to thank them for giving up their time for free.

Feedback has been incredible and I want to particularly thank those who sent emails and tweets congratulating us on the show. My favourite comment came from the forum

I wasn’t expecting to attend a premier web conference with leading authorities in their specialties. Yet, what I received was a top-notch virtual web conference that rivals anything I’ve attended in the past. And it was FREE. I’ve been talking about it with colleagues ever since.

But I missed it!

Unfortunately, not everybody has 12 hours to sit down and listen to a live boagworld show (bizarre I know)! However, we also know that you don’t want to miss out which is why we are releasing the show in 3 formats.

The Taster show

This week’s podcast is a one hour ‘clip show’ that gives you a taste of what the 12 hour marathon was like.

The whole thing!

We didn’t really intend to release the whole show but you guys seem to want it so here it is. Please note however, that the quality is very low. We had to keep the file size down to spare our bandwidth.

Download the entire 12 hour podcast (in low quality audio)

The individual interviews

We will also be releasing the show as a series of bitesize interviews including full transcripts for those unable to listen to audio. These will take time to put together. However, they should become available over the coming weeks.

I hope you enjoy the 200th show and normal service will be resumed next week.

Paul looking tired

  • Liking that new intro music, good work marcus.

  • Nice jingle! :D

  • Oow, like the new sound:)

  • Excellent jingle Marcus, love the “updated” sound & guitar. And great job producing a taste of 12 hours of web goodness. Paul, as Marcus stated before the show and wishing not to balloon your evergrowing ego ;-), great job producing and generating ideas for 200 quality shows. Here’s hoping you never tire of it.

  • Ohhhh, ahhhhhh .. that intro music is PIMP… Love it.

  • Carmen Free

    Nice new intro. Need some mood lighting and a drink with that.

  • Max Bucknell

    I was at my girlfriends house on the 12th, and while I wasn’t prepared to play ill, I was gutted that I couldn’t listen to your podcast live- if I could have I would have stayed off school as well, and I do really want you to release the entire podcast- can’t you just upload the mp3 then let us link to it? I’m sure that the people hardcore enough to listen to it all wouldn’t mind doing that, unless I’m missing something. You must have the space though, you’re a web design agency right?

  • Gary Aston

    Thanks for all you’ve put into the show over the years.

  • 12 hours? You guys are nuts!

    Congratulations on your 200th episode!

  • Great work as always! Love the new jingle as well. Can’t wait to see what you bring us next.

  • Andy Wickes

    Just listened to the hour long preview! Love the new choon and especially the sci fi book reviews!

  • Why not make the full quality version available as a torrent, that should save your bandwidth, let your community share the burden.

    • We did consider that but there are other technical considerations. I won’t bore you :)

  • Brian Chappell

    Firstly, listened to the 200th abridged version this morning. As always excellent stuff and teasing enough to now download the full 12 hours, I’m not sure who’s the bigger glutton for punishment, you for doing it or me for planning to listen to the whole thing.

    Secondly, majorly chuffed to find the Website Owner’s Manual on Safari (Books Online) this afternoon!

    Keep up the good work.

  • Bronson Tobler

    Best start ever – Well done with the words and music Marcus.

  • What, no transcription?


  • Some great little sections in there, just made me want to hear more of it though, especially the chat about rates and how to set them. And have to admit I liked the old music better, sorry Marcus!
