So here we are, two days into the new year. I’ve been thinking about what it’s going to mean for Angry Beanie.

For a start, 2018 is going to be THE year that I complete the Women In STEMM project. I have nine more women stemmistas to interview to hit the target of 20 episodes and I’m in the process of lining them up.

Next I’m going to try and get back into regular podcast production. Nothing too extravagant, just something small to give me that hit of making something on a regular basis. I think that’s important for me. If I leave too long a gap between hits, then I start to fade and the walls come up. I’ll be announcing what this is going to look like soon.

I’m also looking to branch out of podcasting and explore the world of game streaming. As with everything else media wise, I’m interested in the mechanics of the thing. Not just the tech, but what makes a good game streamer, how do they interact with their audience, why do people watch?

I’ve already setup a twitch account at:


Over the next little while I’m going to be fleshing it out and working out some kind of schedule. On the website side of things, I’m still building it out. It turns out that I’m my own worst enemy when it comes to feature creep, but as it turns out that I’m the one who has to build it, I guess that’s okay.

So that’s it for the moment. Provided life doesn’t get in the way too much, I reckon I’ve got a shot at getting through most of the above.
