Hi, this is Mel and Patience talking to you, but some of this is in third person to make it sound more like we’re professional writer ladies, and less like this has been written on the floor in pyjamas.
Last week, Patience and Mel launched Episode 1 of ‘The Minutes’ podcast on the world, and by Patience and Mel, we actually mean John from The Grates. Who is an Internet wizard, and knows which computer buttons to press to make the podcast take off its invisibility cloak and be seen by the world in iTunes, thanks John!
Also thank you; yes you, sir/madam/highly intelligent super dog that’s hacked into your owners laptop to read this. We had a beaut little debut with ‘The Minutes’ peaking at number 3 in the Top Podcasts chart. What? I know! Number 3? Yep. Totez. For realsies. Our faces were stuck on yay face all last Thursday and Friday as we watched The Minutes chug up the iTunes chart, we were so surprised that we took even screen shots of our podcast when it hit number 3 (for our mum’s fridges).
It was a super exciting day; it was more exciting than when someone says ‘I can’t eat all these chips’. We wish to say a big thanks to everyone who downloaded it and then yapped about us on Twitter.
Last Thursday The Minutes was all over twitter, like glandular fever at a Blue Light Disco, thanks to your support.
We even got some lovely reviews:
“If a podcast was to drink milo. Eat organic donughts, and bathe in dugong oil it would turn into something as energetic and awesome as The Minutes is. Can’t wait for the next one!” Calum Scorgie, 5 stars.
“A synergistically witty pair of blatherers. Recommend you have a listen” Matredeemed, 5 stars.
And from Mel’s mum, ‘Well if the iTunes computer people think the home radio thing you make with that Patience girl is good, it must be, they know what they’re doing’. Ah Mum, thanks for trying.
Episode 2 will be out on 8 September! Woo! In episode 2 Patience tells Mel about the time she met Lil John/What happened on the set of The Grates new film clip ‘Sweet Dreams’?/ Mel lived with someone who kept chocolate under lock and key/ The girls discuss John Travolta’s departure from the Qantas Inflight Safety videos/ And heapz more.
In the meantime, catch Patience on Talkin Bout Your Generation Wednesday 31st August at 8.30pm on Network Ten with Josh Thomas, and if you’ve got foxtel, you do? Well, Patience is also hosting Channel [V] all this week. Lucky you, having foxtel and all, talk about flash.
Mel and Pae
