GeoGearHeads 197: Caching Solo II

customLogo.gifOCNA Admin DudleyGrunt and his good friend NativTXN (Denise) were recently on the GeoGearHeads Podcast episode 197, talking Solo Caching. A libsyn embed of the show is at the bottom of this post. This show is not about OCNA, but we like to promote DG, whom we believe to be the most prolific guest in Geocaching Podcasting history. šŸ™‚Ā  You’ll notice we did not refer to NativTXN as an OCNA Admin. This is because she got way too busy in life, and stepped down from her position with us in mid August 2015. Our records (a post in our forums)Ā  indicate she was announced as a member of the OCNA Team on May 1st 2012. We thank her for her 3+ years of service!

OCNA Admin DudleyGrunt on the Cache and Release Geocaching Podcast

candrOCNA Admin DudleyGrunt appeared on yet another Geocaching Podcast on Sunday August 9th, 2015: The Cache and Release Geocaching podcast. DG was mainly on the show to talk about our website and our 5th anniversary contest, but he and host Michael Miller discuss several topics, including recent Geocaching News, and Geowoodstock. The Cache and Release Geocaching Podcast is recorded on Sunday Nights. It was created with a very simple goal in mind: ToĀ inform and entertain. The show, produced weekly, will keep listeners up to date with the latest geocaching news and related subjects. Listeners will also have the opportunity to listen to interviews that broaden the scope of the show by bringing in other geocachersĀ and pundits.Ā In addition, the Cache and Release Podcast seeks to entertain listeners with topical and off topical commentary and subject matter. The end result should be a show that is well produced and considered a leader not only within the geocaching community, but alsoĀ within the podcasting community.

You can listen to the audio version on their website, or subscribe to it through iTunes, RSS, or Android, watch the shows on YouTube, and check them out on FaceBook, Google+, Pinterest and Twitter.

OCNA Admin DudleyGrunt on The Geocaching Podcast 5/6/15

gcpcoverartOCNA’s longest tenured Admin, DudleyGrunt, is an official fill in host on The Geocaching Podcast, and fulfilled those duties for the first time on Wednesday, May 6th, 2015 on episode 401. In addition to discussing our site’s new Challenge caches with host HeadHardHat and fellow co-host Taz427, they also discuss two Terracaching.com Cyber caches which support very worthy causes. Those being DG’s own 2015 Walk to Defeat ALS Cyber Cache (which supports defeating ALS, and more specifically, the team Ben’s Buddies in honor of DG’s Father) and St. Baldrickā€™s 2015 Cyber Cache (which supports childhood Cancer research, and more specifically, Team OConnellz). You can listen to (and watch) the video version of the whole show below. There is the usual pre-show banter, but the actual show starts at the 6:40 mark.
