The Goddess & The Banana

One of the joys of having a place like Oyster Bay is watching it act like a magnet for such creative people.  Among the many is Yxes Delacroix, whom I met during the Madcow show.  Among her other ventures, Yxes has a regular podcast, “The Goddess and Banana,” with business associate Banana Stein.  I’m still a bit of a newbie in the world of podcasts – honestly, they take a LOT of time to listen to – but it’s clear that this podcast is REALLY well done.  High production values (Skype is REALLY clear – I had no idea), original music….amazing.  And Yxes and Banana have a friendly, conversational tone that makes the show a pleasure to listen to.  (For the uninitiated, the site advertises the podcast as a “classy adult” show – but I haven’t heard anything that I wouldn’t hear on primetime television in the show that I listened to.)

This podcast, like other SL-inspired audio and video – not to mention the countless forum boards, blogs, etc. – is a fascinating testament to the cultural power of Second Life.  I’m just amazed at the depth and breadth of immersion in Second Life.  It really is another world.    If you stumbled upon this blog and haven’t tried SL, give it a try.  Basic accounts are free!
