The Daily Affirmation

ashaelashael Registered User new member
Hey all, I realize this is a stretch but I thought I'd ask here. I don't know if anyone remembers when Scott Kurtz and Kris Straub used to do a podcast called the Daily Affirmation with Scott and Kris. It's my brother's and my favorite podcast of all time and it's tradition that whenever we get together we listen to it. Unfortunately, and much to our despair, it's no longer on iTunes or indeed any other service to which we have access. It's nowhere else online because everything links to the iTunes version. It's a real bonding thing for the both of us and I miss it terribly.

Does anybody have any way of listening to it? I realize this is a hugely unlikely thing given that people don't tend to save podcasts and that it was made a decade ago. But if by some small miracle somebody saved it to their drive I would be ecstatic to hear it again.

Thanks.

    Itunes is free?

    Power Hour?
    Daily Affirmation?

    edit: Did you try them from your computer instead of a device?

    edit2: it looks like the actual recording that the various spots sourced from, talkshow, no longer have the files. they're a straight 404 there. IIRC, iTunes doesn't host the files, they just link to them from hosted services.

    Your best bet for something like that would be to e-mail Kris Straub.

    Or Kurtz, but I imagine if anyone has a backup of those files it would be Straub.

    I actually did email Straub, haven't gotten an answer but I wasn't really expecting one given how weird of a request this was. Per tastydonuts' advice I emailed TalkShoe as well but I'm not exactly holding my breath. Thanks anyway, guys, I appreciate it

    Straub was at PAX East, so he might be behind on responding to emails and such so don't give up just yet.

    Hey, I know this is late (by like 2+ years), but I did save a copy of all 84 episodes of Daily Affirmation on my PC when they took it off itunes/talkshoe - it was one of my favourites as well... they were saved on my iTunes so I added them to my iPod and saved them as .mp3s.

    Not sure the best way to share them with you, but I would hate it if I couldn't relisten to certain episodes (i.e "A Real Nightmare" and "Ahhhh... Oop" come to mind).

    @ashael Since @Kozality already necro'ed the thread, I'll add that I still have them on an iPod classic that works... No idea how to go about getting them off it or share it online, but if someone can walk me through that I can act as a second backup source.

    Google Drive is free up to 15GB, I believe?

    Could make a new Google account and share.

    Hi, just letting everyone know I haven't forgotten about this thread. Since it looks like it's gonna fall to me, I'll try to get them up on a Google Drive by Friday.

    I've never listened to the podcast in question, but this seems like something someone could put onto archive.org eventually. I know they have all of (or at least most of) 1up.com's old podcasts, so it seems like a logical place to put something like this. I just don't know what the requirements are, if any, for uploading something there.

    Good news! I made a shared Google drive folder. The files have weird iPod character-string names, but if you add the files to your mp3 player of choice they will have the metadata like the episode names & numbers, etc (at least it works in iTunes).

    Bad news! I seem to be missing 8 of the 84 episodes (the folder has a txt file with the list):
    • 41
    • 46
    • 48
    • 52
    • 74
    • 80
    • 82
    • 83
    Fortunately both of the ones Kozality mentioned are present. The only episode I can recall that's missing is the reverse-prank call one. Not sure what the other missing ones could be. @Kozality any chance you can upload the remaining 8?

    I am currently creating a g-account with all eps and will give access to Dinny as soon as they are uploaded. They can share after the transfer is done and all eps will be available. Hopefully in the next couple of hours.

    I also have all 40 of the Kris and Scott Power Hour episodes that were on iTunes and 80+ Webcomics Weekly if anyone is interested... let me know here otherwise they will die with me I suppose.

    Oh man, that's awesome! Thanks a bunch @Kozality .

    I never got around to checking out the power hour, that would be pretty interesting.

    Regarding Webcomics Weekly, for the most part people can use the archive on Brad Guigar's webcomics.com site. I just went through the whole thing myself and all but one episode work (the site has a paywall for its articles, but the WW podcasts are available to everyone for free). The only episode that's dead there is Webcomics Weekly #79 - Reputation. Also #5 is missing, but IIRC they lost the audio for it before it was ever released, and forgot to adjust the numbering, so there never was a 5 (I believe Dave Kellett explains that somewhere in episode 8).

    Yes. #5 is missing and was never uploaded. #79 however I have, also the 4 episodes that were Kickstarter bonuses for Brad's updated "The Webcomics Handbook" tiers (plus webcomics confidential and Webcomics Live both from 2007).

    I'll see what I can do about creating another account with access to all the PA adjacent podcasts I can. May take a while as I have some life stuff to do, but I will be sure to post here when it happens.

    There is the link! All the episodes are there, named and numbered. Thanks a bunch to Kozality for the uploads!

    (*EDIT*) This was not working before. Please give it a red hot try now.
