PLA Radio Episode #8

PLA Radio Episode #8 Released

5/14/2006 - A listener emails a question about social engineering Blockbuster Videos, claiming that it's now nearly impossible. I spend a couple evenings calling every Blockbuster Video in Orange County to prove him wrong. This show is a collection of some of the more informative and entertaining of those calls, plus some voicemails, promos and the best cactus mix you've ever heard. This podcast is 29 minutes long and is about 27.2 megs.

The piano music played throughout this episode is the theme from The O.C., also known as Califoria by Phantom Planet. The Cactus Mix background track is by Jay-Z and is called Squeeze 1st. The song on the end is California Love by Tupac and Dr. Dre.

Bonus Outtake! There were a ton of calls made to the various Blockbusters around Orange County but I couldn't play them all or the show would have been really long and boring. One of the more amusing clips was my girlfriend Jammie attempting to social engineer a Blockbuster out of their password. It was her first attempt ever at social engineering anything and you get to hear her whine a bunch and shake and get cold sweats as I give her a pep talk. Click here to listen to it.

EPISODE #3 - Deaf Relay Operators

TTY TDD
This episode features my new co-host Mary, a relay operator. It also features songs, skits, messages, commentary, commercials and raps all performed by deaf relay operators. It's approximately 17 minutes long and the download is 15,597 kb. Click here to listen to it.

Most of the relay voicemail messages played are more than 10 years old. The message involving the terrorist blowing up a commuter airline, done in 1994, was left on my own voicemail by myself while hanging out in the Portland, Oregon airport. "Mahmoad" was my roommate's name. Other messages were left on my home answering machine by PLA readers that I don't know. Thanks to RTF who made the Shakesphere promo for us a couple years ago.

The people over at the Deaf Relay Message Board aren't too amused with this episode! Be sure to stop by and say hello to the board moderator, Clear-Conscience. There's some great messages there relating to relay prank calls and a lot of the ops think that they're vigilantes and will call back the pranksters.
