Submit questions for Podcast Episode #9


The “Male Sack” was a huge success last time. Your questions were fantastically geeky and created some great moments on the HE Podcast. Let’s go ahead and make this a regular thing. Hit me with your questions. Same format as last time.

I know this is short notice but it’s been a busy week.

BIG ANNOUCNEMENT coming next week. Sit tight.

(remember I won’t answer your questions in the comments. We’ll save them for the show.)


We are going to be interviewing (hopefully) the guy who owns the house where Joss Whedon filmed scenes for “Dr. Horrible“. He probably can’t say much, but if you have questions for him, let us know.

Give me your delicious brain ideas!

We’ve talked about this 40 or 1000 times but now I’m doing it. We need QUESTIONS from THE READERS for THE HIJINKS ENSUE PODCAST.


Please post your questions in the comments of this thread. I won’t respond here. Rather, I will save them and read them during the show. Then, here’s the tricky part, we’ll answer them!

Feel free to add on to each other’s questions and such. I want to make the Podcast more interactive and get some audience participation.

What can you ask? Anything, everything, whateverthing!

If you are a regular reader/listener you know what we normally talk about. Here are some topics we have extensive knowledge on:

  • TV – Lost, Battlestar, Firely, The Buffyverse, The Office, 30 Rock, Arrested D., Star Trek, ALL 80’s and 90’s shows, any scifi or geek show…even Sliders
  • Movies – Upcomming movies, trailers, geek favs from days gone by, you name it
  • Gaming – we have two co-hosts in the gaming industry. Ask them about that.
  • Comics – I’m reading Astonishing X-Men, Buffy and Angel. Eli is reading everything else.
  • HijiNKS Ensue – Questions about the comic? Let me know.
  • Technology – Macs, Apple, Steve Jobs, Macs, iPhones, Macs… you know.. techology.
  • Life – relationships, jobs, sex, personal stuff, etc. We might not answer these, but there’s no harm in trying.

As a bonus, you may also request the manner in which the question is answered. For instance, you can request that your question be answered by Yoda addressing Frodo. Or that Eli’s grandma answer it. Or that Josh answer it in Sexy-German(tm). Ask me to answer the question in the song styling of your choice (I probably won’t do it). Get creative.

If you want to be a part of the HijiNKS Ensue Podcast, here’s a way to get started. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

iTunes Feed for the Hijinks Ensue Podcast

Just got the email from Steve. The iTunes Feed for the Hijinks Ensue Podcast is live!


If you subscribe via RSS you will get all the posts in the Podcast Category which will include each episode of the Podcast. This is the route to go if you want to listen in your browser, or download the MP3.

If you subscribe via iTunes, Steve Jobs will lovingly gift wrap and hand deliver each Hijinks Ensue Podcast to your door in a crystal box atop a satin pillow filled with goose down.


Thursday new comics will resume their regular schedule. Saturday we will be recording a new podcast so PLEASE send in your questions, thoughts and ideas to podcast(at)hijinksensue(dot)com.

Podcasting is harder than it sounds

Hijinks Ensue giveth and Hijinks Ensue taketh away. Monday it will taketh away a new comic and giveth you a podcast. This initial Podcastery took up most of my weekend, so I’ll only be doing one comic this week (Thursday). Having never done this before, there was a tonne of trial and error. Josh and Eli came over on Saturday to record. We spent about an hour setting up and working through technical difficulties. A few false starts, then we winged it (wung it?). I will post the fruits of our labor first thing Monday.

I am working on the iTunes feed for the podcast but you can have the podcast RSS feed right now. You can also get the podcasts, along with comics and blog posts in the regular “everything” RSS feed.

So how did it go?


Having a funny conversation when no one is listening = easy. Having a funny conversation when you feel like you have to = teh h4rdz. I had plans to talk about topics, read mail from you guys and, oh I don’t know, have coherent discourse that human beings could understand. Well, I forgot all the topics, and forgot to read the emails. Speaking of, I am saving those for next time, so if you emailed with a question I will get to them. I did read and almost answer a question from Kip. I think I came off sounding like I was being a dick to Kip. I wasn’t trying to. I was just confused and frightened.

Things should go smoother next time. I think the more questions we have to answer, the better we will do. So email your questions to podcast(at) You can even email a recording of a question and we might play it on the show.

Of the 3 of us, Eli was the most pleased with how things turned out. He was riding that train wreck off into the sunset with a shit eating grin on his face. Every time I threatened to cut something out, he baulked and insisted “the worse it is, the better it is.” That must be what they teach you in Mexican public schools.

Anyway, give it a listen and let me know what you think. I really do appreciate the emails and comments I got with suggestions and questions. There were some really good questions and I hope to answer them next week.

You can download/ listen to the podcast here.

I swear to god we’re doing a Podcast

OK, I’ve confirmed this with the brain trust, and we ARE recording a Podcast tomorrow. I promise this is (probably) not a fake out. If it goes well (or goes at all) I would like to make this a regular feature of the site. This inaugural episode will feature the core HE crew (me, Eli and Josh).

How can you contrubite? You can send emails/questions between right now and Saturday morning to podcast(at)hijinksensue(dot)com. What should you submit?

  • Questions you would like us to answer regarding TV, Movies, teh webz, Comicbooks, Apple, techology, scifi, geek stuff, etc.
  • Ideas for names for the podcast. YES, you can help name the Podcast
  • Your recommendations for where you think I should host the podcast. I want cheap-as-free, itunes subscriptions, RSS, little to no adds
  • Whatever else you can think of that might make for good conversation

Other ideas? Feel free to email or leave a comment. I want this to be fun and… that’s all.
