Disclaimer! Disclaimer! Disclaimer!

MSBPodcast is "not" any kind of a medical podcast.

It is by and for MSers.

Its purpose is to keep us entertained, to explain our symptoms, to remark on our discoveries, and to raise the general consciousness about our disease.

The path to illness is shadowy, murky and rough strewn.

The path to wellness is lit by the lamp of knowledge.


Feedback comes first, so...

I'm now testing the crap out of the wiki.

But I'm not going to give out the URL just yet.

It's got no content and I want to give the Societies and the Chapters a reason to go.


Hole...ey crap! Who are you people who just showed up on the site and downloaded like mad?

I'll take it was fewer people downloading "all" of the old episodes (But its still and awesome blip to have appear on my stats.)

Feed Forward comes next, so...

This is "your" segment.

Say "your" piece on this segment.

Share with other MSers whatever "you" want to share.

Okay. I have got some food news for you.

I first heard about "BaconSalt" [ ] on the March 19, 2008 episode "OtakuGeneration" [ ] (#145 in case you want to upload it,) and dang if it didn't sound like a great idea.

It didn't hurt that the guys were taking boring old plastic-tasting packing pop corn and turning them into baco-licious kernels, and talking about how good it was and munching on 'em and ... Well you get the mouth watering idea. [slurp ... droo-ool!]

Now, I'm as curious as the next guy, (okay, maybe a bit more, [okay, okay, a lot more,]) so I got in touch with the makers of Bacon Salt, [ ] Justin Esch and Dave Lefkow.

I bought a variety pack with my own money, so this not a paid promo or product placement or anything like that. They're not a sponsor or anything like that (if only, if only.["sob"])

I'm friends with a chef who shares my opinion of salt, which is that, salt is fine in moderation and to cook with (when it enhances the flavor,) but once the food is cooked, salt just tastes like salt.

And salt does all kinds of nasty things to your blood pressure.

But what about when the salt is "flavored"?

What about when the salt is flavored with "Bacon"? (Hmm, "Baconny baconness.")

Now, I'm able to watch my salt intake, but this makes it "worth" watching.

No more salting things just because I'm trying to get some flavor out of them, or eating "blah" food. ("Boiling meat" in anything is a terrible thing that I'm convinced only sadists and wastrels do.)

This turns anything, heck, everything into something with "baconny goodness".

Try some, or try a variety pack like I did, of Bacon Salt, [ ] and reach your own conclusions. And if you do tell 'em you heard it on the MSBPodcast or write is as a comment on the order.

Oh...And this is killer...

Its "Kosher" to boot.

---- "Wasserfall" by: "Susis Maenner"

Feed Me comes third, so...

Do you have a therapy, product, good or service that is of interest to MSers?

Consider advertising on this podcast.

Reminders on this segment only cost $0.03 per reminder per download of an episode. (A $30CPM targeted at MSers.)

It can/should lead to a full ad, in text, audio or video, which costs $3.00 per download.

That sounds expensive until you do the math and realize that if nobody downloads it it costs you nothing, unlike print, where you often can't even get an ad in to the specialized journals, or radio or TV where you'd just be wasting your money with the 0.0833% MSers rate of return. (That's about six times "below" the level of "statistical noise".)

But MSBPodcast is 100% in your market, and you only pay per download of your material.

No play, no pay.

Reach the MSers who would buy your therapy, product, good or service, with-out having to waste your advertising money on anyone who is "not" interested...

Ya know, I've been going over some of my old shows and, damn those were good.

I may have been worse off (this was back when I was still pissed off, I "hated" self-injection [I still do but now this podcast lets me vent and to hopefully get beyond just venting,] and I still hadn't discovered anything about neuro-plasticity,) but damn, musically those shows were "good".

---- "Brackwasserrezept - GermanHipHop" by: "Brackwasser"


Now I'm "not" taking any "kudos" for the artists.

They wrote the songs, played the instruments and sang the words.

All I did was gather up the songs into some shows.

But it doesn't take away from the fact that those shows sounded great.

They sounded so great that I've shuffled the deck and I'm bringing some of the tunes back with some new palaver in between the songs.

---- "Nur der Filter - GermanHipHop" by: "Brackwasser"


Damn. I may have my head firmly planted in my butt psychically but there was nothing wrong with my ears.

---- "Salz in Deinen Augen - GermanHipHop" by: "Brackwasser"


And this episodes music was brought to you courtesy of Christoph [ ] who's a German podcaster who was nice enough to reach out. (Man we're really "world wide.")

You'll be hearing some more suggestion by him in later episodes.

Kosher Bacon Salt ... MAN! For that alone, you have to Love America. Now, we just need to get that stuff into the Middle East ... bring them to their knees with FLAVOR!

Sure do gotta love America... :-)

And if you do order some, just to try it out, like I did, do remember to mention the show on the order.

(I'm trying to make them see just how effective podcasting is [though, after the first order, the stuff pretty much sells itself [you just have to be strong enough not to put the stuff everywhere and on everything. {Like I said and wrote, its easier to control that automatic "salt shaker" behavior when the stuff actually has got some flavor, (rather than the automatic shaking that you do when the salt and the food under it simply has no taste.)}])
