Piss-Funny Writing-Related Podcast—Tweep Nation

tweeplogofinal

Ok, so the heading is a tad crass, but that’s what you get when you listen to Tweep Nation. Amber Norrgard and I have been recording Tweep Nation for the past year and a half. Every week we interview authors and we’ve been known to interview a musician and next week is an artist. I guarantee this podcast will teach you something and make you laugh (maybe at the same time). We discuss writing, publishing, life and any manner of inappropriate things (too inappropriate to name here).

Just a word of warning, or maybe this will be the thing that makes you listen, we do swear and ruin things for people: fairly floss has been likened to clown pubes, we will make you paranoid about wee germs in public toilets, one of our guests lost his virginity to a midget in a threesome, and some of our guests have shot people (so has Amber, come to think of it).

If you’re still intrigued and need a laugh, you can download the awesome Tweep Nation podcast from iTunes, Stitcher and Newbiewriters.

Ciao, and beware the wee germs.

Tweep Nation Rocks the Depend now We’re LIVE

tweeplogofinal

Ok, you can say it: Dionne’s been lazy. I’m sorry but I’ve been so busy I didn’t post last week’s awesome Tweep Nation Podcast on my blog *holds hand out for a smack* (I originally typed ‘for smack’ but that just sounded wrong). Anyway, last week, episode 44, we entertained author Jason McIntyre. He was so cool (loved the Canadian accent) and he was super obliging and married Bobbi Jo on air with Amber officiating in her reverend capacity. Unfortunately Bobbi Jo had to leave when her dealer came to the door.

This week was our third live-streamed show, and Dance on Fire author, Jimmy Garcia, agreed to be our victim. His second book has recently been released, Flash Point, and has a super interesting premise. You should check it out :). He was patient and listened while Amber and I talked sex drive, spooky whistling and what constitutes being a slut. Oh dear, will we ever behave? (I think not, so don’t hold your breath).

You can listen on all the usual places (iTunes, stitcher and Newbiewriters) or you can join us live, at the time of our demise, every week—Friday night US time, Saturday morning Aus time. If you join the live chatroom we can see your comments in real time. We’d love to see you there cause it rocks! Look out for times on @TweepNation1 as we’ll update it every week (as times can change) :).

Amber & Dionne get Serious with Author Edward Lazellari

Our Awesome guest on Tweep Nation today is traditionally published author, Edward Lazellari. He’s a New York author who is about to release the second book in his urban fantasy series. The first book, Awakenings, was super awesome (look out for my review). He’s worked as an artist for Marvel Comics and apparently he’s the reason Amber failed geometry—listen to find out why. Edward also has some great advice for those of you who dream of being successful at writing. An inspirational and entertaining interview. Don’t miss it! Go now! (sorry, was that too bossy?)

Just a reminder, if you can’t listen on iTunes we’re also on Newbiewriters.com and Stitcher.

Amber gets Clicky with Dionne & Michelle’s Blobs

Our uber awesome guest today was author, Michelle Franco. She has been a long-time Twitter friend of Amber & I and has appeared on Tweep Nation once before. Michelle writes zombie stories and has two books out, her latest is Where Will You Hide. She was very patient while Amber clicked her mouse like there was no tomorrow: I, on the other hand, was ready to send Amber to podcast heaven. She really knows how to push my buttons. Gee, how did I manage to write so many cliches into one blog post? It’s skill I suppose. Join the Tweep Nation podcast for hysterics, hysterectomies and histrionics and occasionally you may hear something intelligent between the swear words.

Author Colin Chadwick Announces Dionne is a Genius & Amber Snorts

It was so cool on the Tweep Nation podcast today because we had fellow Aussie author Colin Chadwick. We chatted about his fantasy series and the first book Soulhunters, his vegetable garden, and my new alcohol habit. Listen to my tiny tantrum when Amber’s clicking drives me bat-shit. Find out what happened when Amber went to the post office. Gear up for some giggles because we are funny (if you haven’t already heard).

Amber & Dionne explore Bellybuttons, Jeebers and Ordainment with Author Donna Cavanagh

Another chukleworthy episode of Tweep Nation. Our guest today is author and journalist, Donna Cavanagh. I’ve actually reviewed her book, Try and Avoid the Speed Bumps, on my website. I loved her book. She’s a funny lady so it’s no surprise that we share the same birthday ;). Topics discussed today include being a reverend, bellybutton displacement, Jesus and his robe and the godawful reality tv show Honey Boo Boo (I’m shuddering as I type this). One last thing—please, if you enjoy our show, vote for us in the Stitcher podcast awards. We are always hoping for more listeners, and we need your help :). Thanks guys, hope you enjoy this week’s show!

Amber & Dionne get the Giggles with Charity Parkerson

Serenity now! Amber was at our guest’s house for this Tweep Nation podcast and god it was hard work! It was like being the only sober person in the room or the only adult in a daycare centre *sigh*. I did survive, though, barely. Bobbi Jo popped in to keep me company for a few minutes—I wish she’d stayed. Listen in to hear what erotica writer, Charity Parkerson, is up to at the moment. Please forgive us for this podcast.
