Crewcast Radio Broadcast 7: The One Where George Lucas Retires


George Lucas
George Lucas takes a well earned retirement from big biz to get busy in his garage, we wish him luck.
This podcast starts with a conversation already in progress about beloved entertainers who refuse to retire, retired then changed their mind, and finally comes to the man we initially decided to talk about, George Lucas, who is certain about his retirement. I make a huge mistake several times by referring to Frank Miller as Frank Frezetta - OOPS - then we move on to Ray's review of the $99.99 Kobo touch. Spoiler alert: he takes no prisoners.
The rest of the episode provides a rare walk through of the Spinward Fringe novel that was never written between Broadcast 0 and Broadcast 1 - and Ray had something to say about that book's absence.
All in all, it's a great beginning to our discussion of the Science Fiction world, and the beginning of Broadcast 1, which will continue next week.
We have the pleasure of presenting another tune from Walk Off The Earth this week, it's called Money Tree. We just can't seem to get away from this band, and it seems the world is falling under their spell as they continue their tour. Check them out at www.walkofftheearth.com.

Not sure if it was meant to be humorous, but Ray's review of the Kobo ereader was hilarious. Best of luck finding a better solution!

Just a quick comment on the kindle, you can indeed add your own books to it. You can convert them to .mobi with "callibre" and you're all set ;-)

Hi A.M.

Having been working with eBooks since 2004, I know about Calibre and a few other batch processing programs. We just didn't cover anything during this show because we're saving that whole thing for another time.

I just wonder what Ray will think of the process, since his current reader (ancient technology), doesn't require any conversion to read any format. It's going to be a challenge trying to switch him to something more modern!

Thank you for your comments, TwistedSciFi and A.M.!
