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.

Get Your Trenchcoats—Amber & Dionne go Live with Damien

This week we went live! That’s right, we had a live audience. Our guest was Newbiewriter host and host of the awesome Newbiewriters website, Damien. Damien’s doing Movember, so support him if you can, he also has a wicked sense of humour and we covered interesting topics such as neighbours having affairs, to, what if people were built like octopi, and how to make pitching your book easy, which may or may not involve bringing a mask to the interview. It was loads of fun to address our listeners’ comments as they typed in the chat room, so thank for joining us (you awesome peeps know who you are). Lucky for everyone else, it is recorded and available at the usual places: itunes, newbiewriters and stitcher. Enjoy episode 43!

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.

Tweep Nation – Amber Tells Dionne the Naked Truth

Hey Everyone! This week our wonderful guest, author Michelle Franco, went AWOL. The gorgeous lady thought the podcast was the day after, but never mind, we’re hauling her arse back on next week. In the meantime, to fill the void, Amber told me about her most embarrassing moment ever, in the history of her life, which occurred this week. Marie, our new friend from France read a poem of Ben Ditmars and we find out why you should always follow the instructions on the bottle of Veet men’s hair removal cream. Join the girls who love to laugh.

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).

Tweep Nation has a Casual Catchup with Susan May

Today for episode 38, Susan May, author, movie and book reviewer extraordinaire, gave us the lowdown on JK Rowling’s new book The Casual Vacancy. We also discussed which movies to see and which to avoid. Amber’s a bit sick so she was unusually quiet until she voiced her objection to doing ‘Days of the Week’—she sure expended some energy then. Susan’s a friendly Aussie who had us laughing, but don’t ever ask her to mind your pets ;). Please join us for the usual laughs and some unusual ones.
