LIVE FROM LOCKDOWN: An Evening With Tech’s Message — TM 200

Podcast cover
Read more

A live special episode with a studio audience formed of participants from Europe to Scandinavia to the U.S. to Australia—listening and laughing live, as we present the funniest failures and hottest highlights from the last hundred episodes of Tech’s Message.

Recorded live on Saturday 4 April.

Two-hundred episodes, five years, a million downloads, a global Webby Award nomination and a loyal community of thousands of amazing listeners and Patrons.

It’s not been a bad life for Tech’s Message so far!

But those milestones have coincided with a global pandemic that’s miserable and deadly. We’re locked in our houses, or sick—or both.

The world needs laughter more than it needs two bearded BFFs talking about broadband, so we made episode 200 something really special: a live taping with our Patrons as a live studio audience spread across four continents.

Ian and Nate present a collection of the most lighthearted outtakes, popular rants, opinions about shoehorns, bizarre non-sequiturs and other nostalgic gems from the last 100 episodes of the show.

The clips were edited in advance into eight categories and were played out in front of a virtual audience. They’re joined by Tom Merritt, Andy Hoyle, Marta Svetek, plus dozens of Patreon supporters, friends and family.

Classic Tech's Message: Episode 100 LIVE From May 2017

Podcast cover
Read more

Episode 200 is coming up but in the meantime we're all stuck at home, or at least being bombarded with bad news about Covid-19. So I decided to pull the extremely fun and laughter-filled episode 100 out of the archive for a second run, with a fresh intro from me. For some longer-term listeners, this will hopefully be an enjoyable blast from the past; For newcomers, you may be hearing it for the very first time.

It's also available in video form, as we had a multi-camera film rig for the night too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K97YEQJfanc

The episode was originally taped in May of 2017, so after the Brexit referendum but long before the coronavirus pandemic. Ian and I were joined by several special guests to discuss a wide range of British tech and gaming nostalgia, fun and trivia:

- Vicki Turk, WIRED

- Andy Hoyle, CNET

- Luke Westaway, Outside Xtra

- Katie Collins, CNET

- Special guest James Protheroe of Darran Park Primary School

We taped this episode live in front of an invite-only studio audience at London’s TechHub - big thanks to them for hosting us.

And now, back to my preparations for episode 200...

- EXTRA STORY: The decade (1999-2009) in review, in review!

We take a journey down memory street to a podcast Ian and I recorded 10 years ago this week and see how things have changed. We spent the episode trying to decide what the tech of the decade was, so we’re going to listen to some clips and see if we’d still put these technologies in our list one decade hence. You’ll hear two other voices on occasion, a man called Rory Reid, now at the BBC of course, and Flora Graham, who went on to do great things at New Scientist and the journal Nature.

- The appearance of Robin, the Tech’s Message cat, who has a Christmas message for us
