Raging Titter Radio

This is probably as honest as I’ll ever be about what I’m trying to accomplish with my podcast, Raging Titter Radio. I have always had a lot of thoughts and I’m often overwhelmed by them. Since I was a kid, I imagined my thoughts as balloons, too many comic books I suppose. Anyway, I try to chase them down and grab them before they float away forever. The easiest way to hang onto them is to tie the strings together. If I can tie enough balloons together, I can float away. That’s Raging Titter Radio. Oh and there’s always a top notch indie band playing a great song that's thematically relevant. [more inside]

White Star Balloons Amateur Atlantic Flight

Tonight, Thursday, at 8pm EDT (0000 Fri UTC), in Spaceport, Indiana, White Star Balloons will launch a robotic balloon up into the jet stream, hoping to be the first amateur team to ever fly a small balloon all the way across the Atlantic Ocean and land it on the other side--whether that be Europe, Africa, or points east. No amateur team has ever done this. The farthest amateur flight so far sank 200 miles short of Ireland in 2008. Join us for the launch tonight and track the flight for the next three days! With a little help from Metafilter, I wrote and designed an identification label message for the balloon in sixteen different languages.
