The SG Show #56 - An Eventful Year

2011-11-07 :: steveandsam@gmail.com (Sam and Steve, steveandsam@gmail.com)

Listen to the latest show.

As promised, we've recorded yet ANOTHER show this year.  Will this mean a return to the weekly schedule we had when Sam was 7 years old?  Will Sarah make more appearances?  Will Sophie show up on the mic as much as old Annie did?   Time will tell.

In this show, Sam talks about what it's like in high school, some Podcasts he's listening to and more.

Note to parents:  This show includes a discussion of Sam's hospital visit.  He's fine and we don't talk about the seriousness of the issue, but be aware that we do talk about it.

Also, there's another blooper clip at the end.  People seemed to like it last time. …

The SG Show #55 - Here, But Not Forgotten

2011-01-10 :: steveandsam@gmail.com (Sam and Steve, steveandsam@gmail.com)

Listen to the latest show.

Well, it's 2011 and ...

wait! It's 2011?? And we did our last show in April of 2009. Hm, this isn't much of a weekly show, is it?

We're joined by another S on The SG Show this episode.

And, we made a New Year's resolution. We will do more shows!

Thanks to everyone who wrote to us, letting us know we still have friends out there around the world who look forward to The SG Show.

(Be sure to listen all the way to the end for a special SG Show blooper clip.)

The SG Show #54 - Four Years Later: Checking in with Steve and Sam

2009-04-05 :: steveandsam@gmail.com (Sam and Steve, steveandsam@gmail.com)

Listen to the latest show.

Looking at the Podcast rig collecting dust in the upstairs closet, Sam commented that it's been a looooong time since we've visited with our Podcast friends. So we cleared some time on the spring calendar this past Saturday, and fired up the microphones again.

On this episode of The SG Show, we talk about what Sam's been up to over the past year, including a discussion of Sam's favorite time of year -- summer vacation.

Here are some links to things we talk about on this week's show:

More about the great writer and poet Edgar Allan Poe.

More information about Michael Jackson, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee.

L. Frank Baum was the author of the 15 different Wizard of Oz series of books. The book Wicked was written by Gregory Maguire. …

The SG Show #51 - Two Years and Still Here

2007-06-07 :: steveandsam@gmail.com (Sam and Steve, steveandsam@gmail.com)


Listen to our latest show.



The secret word for this show is "hiatus." The quiz is on hiatus this episode.

Someone (hint: our engineer) pushed the wrong button on our email and erased a bunch of messages we were meaning to get to. If you sent us something, please send it again. And sorry!

The Children of the Lamp series is what Sam is reading now. The book he talked about on the show is The Akhenaten Adventure. Check it out at your local library!

Together, we're also reading Les Miserables, after Sam became interested in the story behind the score of the Broadway musical. We're on page 127 now! Only 1328 pages to go!


Lastly, Sam serenades us at the end of the show with a song on his violin. He's just started learning, and he's practicing regularly now. One day when he's playing Carnegie Hall you can say you heard him way back when. …
