JPG Podcast – The Land Before I Understood Time Part Three

JPG Design copy 300x300

My calendar says our last episode was in August. Last week I pushed out a new episode.

It’s kind of special in that it’s the first one from Hong Kong, second I’m joined in person by my good friend Jack Barker. Jack helped me get set up in Hong Kong when I first arrived. Jack’s been here for over two years now so I thought it was a good idea have him join me and stay on topic as much as possible about this special region of China.

We discuss how a little about this area’s history, difference between here and the UK and why HK for the most part is seemingly better for us both. We go off track with some mention of the new James Bond film – Skyfall and we argue the difference between land reclamation and building an artificial island (turns out, there is no difference).

There are no real show notes, other than to check out this wiki article on Hong Kong.

The audio quality takes a hit with this one because it’s being recorded straight off the laptop’s mic. I’ll be looking into getting a better setup before my next guest.

The Land Before I Understood Time Part 3 a) and b).

Parts one and two are in the form of blogs posts which can be found further down this site.

Introducing JPG Podcast

leave a comment »

I’d like to introduce my very own podcast. Set up with two friends of mine, Alex and Adam (Alex can be found online here and here).

‘JPG’, which stands for journalism, photography and geek, is meant to be an extension of this website’s narrative; covering the same topics that I’m mostly interested. I’m getting to the point where I haven’t felt I should write about everything I come across and it is in my mind more engaging when two photographers discuss something like photography apps on the iPad/iPhone. Bringing Alex onboard helps in that sense.

We will be having irregularly timed podcasts, probably one or two a month (bandwidth permitting). Our aim isn’t to be an up-to-the-minute news show, there are enough of them  (and better ones) out there. Again the style of the podcast will be much in the vain of this website, longer analysis, reviews of photography apps and sometimes just a bit of geek discussion. My aim is to get the balance of serious discussion and light hearted discussion right. Overall I want all the topics to be fun, but to be informative at the same time.

The Podcast’s art work is still being worked up. Later today I will create some sort of Podcast page s well.

If you download and listen I hope you stick around as this podcast idea expands, the first show is a bit raw and unplanned (as the title alludes to), but I thank you for listening.


The first episode is titled – ‘The One Where Alex Didn’t Use a Mic‘ (iTunes link). (Non-iTunes link here)

An irregular podcast featuring your host Jonathan, with alternating guests Alex and Adam. In each podcast we’ll talk about what’s happening in the world of journalism, photography, mixed in with plenty of geek; where geek can bring almost literally anything to the discussion table. 

In our first episode we get to grips with podcasting while at the same time discussing what is probably the best iOS Photography Magazine on the Apple App Store in the form of ‘Once Magazine’(but most definitely the best magazine overall), Apple’s 25 Billion Apps promo, a slew of iOS photography Apps for the iPhone and iPad, a curious iPhone case, a music recommendation and a year’s break to Canada.

History of Photography Enhanced Podcast

leave a comment »

I’ve listened to every single one of these and they are an excellent resource if you want to know about the origins and the history of photography.  Starting with photography’s relationship with painting then Camera Obscura and then onto the invention of the Calotype and the Daguerreotype, also highlighting other breakthroughs in photography and then focusing on artists who have shaped the media.

Lectured by Jeff Curto at the College of Dupage, he has put all his lectures online for free and a blog to accompany it providing accompanying resources.  Very interesting and informative but while you can find this information scattered elsewhere on the net, I think it is far more beneficial downloading these because it is all contained in a single enhanced podcast.

Also link to iTunes.
