Category: The Lost Revisited Now

I had an idea on twitter today : A Lost podcasting swap-fest.  I know what you are thinking.  Heath, you already go on 500 podcasts every other week.  Yes, I’ve been on Donald Is Lost, Lost Mythos, Keys to lost, The Black Rock, etc.  But this Lost podcatsing swap idea is totally different.

What if you could listen to The Smoke Hatch next week but instead of Steve and Matt, it was Matt and Anna in Indiana?  What if you downloaded Donald is Lost and heard Alex from “It Only Ends Once” doing the finer things club and making Mikail voices?  It would be kind of fun, right?

It’s the last season of Lost and the podcasting community pumps out many mnay podcasts per week for your Lost analyzing enjoyment.  But what I’m proposing will be something fun for you and us podcasters. 

Now this podcasting swap is not just Heath Solo going onto the Lost Mythos podcast as a guest.  It is a complete swap.  Let me give you an example :  As host of the Lost Revisited Now, I will not be allowed to do my own podcast for one week.  I have to host another podcast.  But you have to keep the format of the podcast you are swapping to.  If I swap to the Smoke Hatch, I would have to follow the Smoke Hatch’s format : drinking, cursing and talking Lost like they would.  And if Matt from the Smoke Hatch hosted the Lost Revisited Now, he would do the show with Wendy, do my exact intro “Live from California (Pennsylvania for Matt) and Connecticut its The Lost Revisited Now, episode 99…” He would also do Lost Alums, etc.  So we are swapping out one host for another to make things interesting for out Lost podcasting listeners.  And it will make it fun for us podcasters  too.  So when you download The Lost Revisited Now, you would have Matt and Wendy doing the show.  Sound fun?  But the catch is whomever swaps, we have to make sure you act as if you are not guest hosting.  Pretend that you have always hosted this podcast, kind of like Lost alt parallel timeline.  Got it?

I’m working with Steve from the Smoke Hatch it getting a list of podcasters who want in.  We are looking to do it on or around April 1st, April fool’s day, per Anna In Indiana’s idea. 

If you are a podcaster and are interested in participating :

contact Heath :

How fun would it be to hear Jay and Jen on the transmission or Ryan and Jack on the Jay and Jack show?  I sure like it…



Monday January 25, 2010 2pm est on talkshoe, The Lost Revisited Now  goes live with special guests from The Lost Mythos Theory cast.  They will tackle 108 questions you need to know for Season 6.  Will they be answered?  Will they not?  Have they been answered?  Are these the questions we need to ask?  Well, a long time ago, on a blog far far away, Ms. Wendy wrote on her bunnies blog 108 questions of Lost.  SO we decided to podcast about her list, what has been answered and what ones have not, and add new questions to what will and will not be answered in season 6.

To follow along at home, here is the list for Ms. Wendy’s blog :

I’m fairly certain that we’ll get the answers to questions like ” What is the Island?”, “What is the Smoke Monster?” and ” What went wrong after the O6 left?” But before LOST “closes its doors forever”, here is a “shopping list” of some goodies ( in various levels of “importance”) I hope I can pick up on the way out. (These are in no particular order.)

1. The Red Shirt Episode : Not “Nikki and Paulo” but actual extras , folks like “Log Carrying Guy”, “Blue Stripped Half-Shirt Girl” and “Bald Guy That Looks Like Lance Kerwin“. They crashed on the Island as well, and as Arzt said “We’re people too”. I think it would be cool to see some humorous, but significant, connections to the other Losties and the Island that would explain their “longevity” .

2. The Vincent episode : If this one actually sees the light of day, I suspect it will be near, if not THE, very end. That dog’s up to something…I can FEEL it!

3. The Black Rock Episode: Big ship in the middle of the Island that is of interest to Widmore…Yeah, needs some airtime.

On the road again.....

The Lost Ramble On 4 : Hiatus edition was very much a success.  The podcast ran for 6 hours plus and we had a strong all-star podcaster presence .  We had some of our usual suspects : Anna and Denise from Jacob’s CabinDonald from Donald is Lost,  Mr. Bill from Behind the Cutting EdgeNancy Drew from Lostaholics and Axel Foley from Lost Mythos Theory castMatt from Keys to Lost dropped by before his Saturday nite gig. 

We also had some podcasters who made their TLRNow debut : Matt and Steve from The Smoke Hatch.  It was great to finally talk shop with them.  I’m a big fan of The Smoke Hatch and what they do.  Matt stayed till the end with us, he really kept the podcast going.  Thanks my brotha!

Karen from The Odi podcast stopped by.  She only could be around for the beginning but it was an honor to finally speak with her.  She has more knowledge about Lost then anyone I know (not counting Ms. Wendy & ND, lol) and really expresses that Lost passion we all have.  I love her work and you can check out her site :

The excitement of the evening was having our favorite dynamic duo from Hawaii on : Ryan and Jen from The Transmission.  Their podcast is the first one I have ever called into.  They are very well respected in the Lost community.  Why?  Not only do they have the absolute best Lost podcast out there, but they are so kind and down to earth.  They are real people.  Though there was some audio issues at times, when they speak you listen.  Finally we got to talk Lost with them.  Me and Ms. Wendy are so thankful they took the time to hang out with us.  Thanks Ryan and Jen.  Thank you for all that you do for us.  You truly are A+!

Ryan, Desmond and Jen!

Ryan, Desmond and Jen!
