Hi there. We’re calling this page the “Blog”, but it’s really just an assortment of posts that aren’t the podcast.. Still, there’s lots of fun video links posts to read and watch, and some other great surprises.

Sneaky Dragon’s Personal Podcast for You!

by David Dedrick on February 18, 2018

As promised, Jason Dedrick, the winner of our Personal Podcast contest, has posted our special guest episode of The Gentlemen of Elegant Leisure on the website and on their iTunes feed.

The Gentlemen wrote:

What is this? Didn’t the Gentlemen of Elegant Leisure already do an Episode 42? OF course they did, but it didn’t take! There was a microphone “issue”. It was a complete disaster, but then, fate stepped in. The timeline is as follows . . .

Jan 6 – Gentleman Jason is a guest on the Sneaky Dragon podcast, episode #318. While on the podcast, the hosts David Dedrick and Ian Boothby promote their “Personal Podcast” contest.

Jan 8 – Elvis Presley’s birthday.

Jan 9 – The Gentlemen of Elegant Leisure record their episode #42, “Are You Thirsty Tonight?” The “theme” is Elvis Presley inspired cocktails. They record the entire show on the wrong microphone. They do not notice.

Jan 13 – The Gentlemen of Elegant Leisure’s upload day! During the upload, the error in recording is discovered. At first there is sadness followed by anger, but then . . .INSPIRATION HITS! Jason records a super short, super quick version of Episode 42, and more importantly, ENTERS the “Personal Podcast” contest.

Weeks pass.

Feb 3 – The unthinkable happens. Jason wins the “Personal Podcast” contest! Dave is sad.

Feb 8 – The Sneaky Dragon podcast records a new G of EL episode #42.

And record it we did – complete with cocktails! Yucky, yucky cocktails… (Well, Ian liked one of them.) You can hear it all here on the website or, better yet, subscribe  on iTunes or via Stitcher.

Please give their other episodes a listen. We know you enjoy Jason on Sneaky Dragon so we know you’ll get a kick out of The Gentlemen!

Hi, Sneakers. This is an especially sad post to write today. Our very good friend and a great friend to the show, Mike Roberds, unexpectedly passed away late Sunday night.

We’re not sure if you remember way back to Episode 100 – our first live anniversary show with guests David M. and Ben Mills – but it was at that show that Nina Matsumoto handed me an envelope with the instruction that I not open it until she had gone. When I opened it I […]

46 years ago today, Neil Armstrong stepped onto the surface of the moon. In honour of this historic event, Hergé sent Neil Armstrong an amusing drawing that simultaneously celebrated this historic achievement and shone a little reflected glory on the Tintin books. A year later, the French weekly Paris-Match asked Hergé to create a strip […]

Show Notes – The Blue Lotus

April 29, 2015

When I started putting together this edition of the show notes, I thought there wouldn’t be much to say about The Blue Lotus. Hergé actually changed the book very little during its updating to colour in 1946. It had a special place it had in his life, but it is also a watershed moment in his […]
