Wicked Game


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.


I have a quick and easy, painless and not too figgin' nosy customer survey that I really, really, really need you to go and fill out.

You can go to my podcast "page" [ ], click on the button on the left hand side of the page and anonymously answer a few simple questions.

I really need this.


Feedback comes first, so...

I will be changing this website in order to deal with the reality that most of my visitors are coming to my podcasts from the wider web.

Therefore I am shifting things around, creating a new Wiki site which will become the "forward facing page" for the podcast and any and all advertising I manage to find.

---- "Wicked Karma" by: "Ronnie"

Feed Forward comes next, so...

This is "your" segment.

Say "your" piece on this segment.

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

Drop us an email: "charles at"

---- "Wicked Eyed Mule" by: "Maria Daines"

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...

The new site will have "all" of the episodes, each on its own wiki page, with a calendar index pointing to every episode and in a long list.

That should help you having to scroll so much over the boring bits.

Because of some efficiencies that I can realize by using a wiki, the pages will be shorter but will point to the other things that they should.

I'll resurrect all of the episodes, instead of trimming them down.

There'll also be some sections that are usable by anybody who needs them.

I am launching the MSBWiki on top of the MSBPodcast.

The wiki is meant to be more than a podcast ever could be.

Apart from keeping up everything the podcast currently has, the wiki will feature extras discussed below.

For the podcasts:
  • The YouTube videos will all work.
  • The text will be shorter because I can keep the "boiler plate" segments on their own pages and just provide links to them.
  • The bands songs titles, pictures and websites will be "hot linked"
  • The audio will work of course (but work better if you have QuickTime installed and will work best if you have iTunes installed.)
For advertisers:
  • they'll still be able to do the podcast ads I've been on about for a while now,
  • they'll still be able to do straight CPM ads in audio,
  • they'll now be able to do show sponsorship on the wiki site,
  • they'll now be able to do "episode" sponsorship on the wiki site.
Other things I want to bring to the New Jersey MS Self-Help Group, they'll be able to use:
  • Google Maps for the locations of their meetings.
  • Google Calendars for the timing of their events.
  • Images/pictures of their events.
  • YouTube for recordings of their events.
I am also going to make this available to anyone else with the same needs.

Nothing will change for you the audience but because 85% of you come by the web instead on via iTunes, I am about to make that experience more enjoyable and cohesive for you all.
