A Host Acquired, featuring Excuses


I know you’re wondering when the next half-hour(ish) of aural goodness is going to make its way into your ear canal. Well, have I got news for you!


I recently switched podcast hosts and I think (I hope) I’ve finally got everything in order, so you can look forward to downloading even more of this garbage very soon.

I’ve been assured that this will all happen seamlessly but because I trust absolutely no one, I would highly recommend re-subscribing via your favorite podcast app using this link:


If for some reason you end up with double the subscription, YAY, that just means more fake listeners for me. In theory, this shouldn’t happen but if it does, simply unsubscribe from the original and use the new one.

Apologies for being a pain in the ass. I’m trying to make all of this about 100% easier on myself so that I have more time to record stuff and spend less time dicking around with it all.


UPDATE: I am told that Google podcasts is being a bit of a dick. My solution here would be simple: don’t use Google podcasts. I’ve been around awhile and there’s no platform more listener and creator hostile than Google podcasts. It’s crap. I know you aren’t using Google Music, right? I mean, no one is. You’re either a Spotify person or an Apple person (and the latter generally always use the Apple Podcasts app). Use those. Or, alternately, use Amazon or one of the other dozen or so choices that the link above gives you if you click the “More…” button. Trust me, you’ll be much happier and your podcast-listening experience will improve as a result. Really.

A Recording Made, featuring Silence

So, about that new podcast episode…

We recorded it today. Really. And what I ended up with was 65 solid minutes of Sabrina Miller’s side of the conversation, and zero minutes of my side. In true Sabrina fashion, she offered to do the whole damn thing over again but by that point I was struggling to figure out what I did wrong. Turns out I can simply blame Skype.

Sorry. We’ll do another next weekend and make a proper comeback on January 25th.

I promise.

The best laid plans of mice and men…

…often go awry.

As of Friday, March 20, 2020 at 12:30pm Pacific, I have 3 episodes recorded, uploaded and ready to go. Impatiently awaiting approval from the Apple Podcasts store.

Sorry. I tried texting Tim Cook but all I got back was some bullshit about the new iPad.

Check back Monday. They never approve things over the weekend.

You’re early

Patience is a virtue that you clearly don’t possess.

It’s ok, don’t worry, I don’t either.

The first episode of New Portland Sucks will be available Friday, March 20th, 2020 both here and at all of the places one normally goes and subscribes to podcasts – there are so many fuckin’ places to get podcasts these days, aren’t there?

After that there will be new episodes twice a week, probably on Tuesdays and Fridays.

And before you ask, yes, there are plans to re-release all of the old episodes of PDX Sucks, Suck It, and Morning Submission. 🤪 Yes, I still have all of them because I’m a packrat when it comes to crap like that. Look for those in late May, 2020.

Thank you.
