Films on the TalkTeen Podcast

In the next few episodes that we will be releasing, we will be talking about some films that we particularly enjoyed.
If you wish to watch any of these films (or indeed - thousands and thousands of others) do not panic! You don't need to buy them. Why not just rent them?
OK - but some of these high street stores are a bit on the expensive side, aren't they? I mean - Blockbuster can charge £4 for one DVD for one night.
We've found (and use) a much better service - where you don't even need to LEAVE YOUR HOUSE. is a fantastic website - where, after becoming a member (and paying around £10 a month) - you can get unlimited DVDs in that month! How cool is that???
Let us explain...
Imagine having access to hundreds of thousands of DVDs, Blu-Ray disks and video games - just at the touch of a button.
Lovefilm is a website where you pay a small amount, then pick any DVDs (or Blu-Ray disks or video games) and add them to your online list. Lovefilm will then, straight away, pick one of the DVDs on the list and send it to you, via the post. It comes the next working day. You watch it. If you like it, you can keep it for as long as you like. There are no late fees. When you send that back (free of charge, they even provide the envelope) - they immediately send you out the next one.
We are on a package where they send us two at a time - and it is absolutely brilliant! We can watch as many DVDs as we want every month, we just send them back after we watch them - and then we get the next one.

It is brilliant and we highly recommend it.

If you are interested in subscribing to Lovefilm - or just seeing more details, please click here to go to their website and subscribe.

Christmas and New Year Competition

As Christmas is only two days away and New Year is only a couple more, we are setting a new competition for you guys.

Basically, we want you to take a picture of you holding a sign that you can download on our website. But we want you to make them as interesting and exciting as possible.

Perhaps you could wear a Santa Hat, or take it with a famous landmark in the background. Perhaps you could get your dog in the photo, or if you are going on holiday, take one there. Whatever you are doing, just take a photo and send it to us.


The best ones will not only win a fantastic eBook, they will also get mentioned on the podcast and get their pictures posted onto the internet! This is a fantastic competition, not to be missed!


Tuesday, December 19, 2006


OK, you may have noticed that we are not making so many episodes of the podcast as usual. OK. Well, we have been suffering from technical difficulties and also other problems (exams, holidays, etc.) and have therefore been unable to make the podcast.

We will hopefully be starting to make loads more episodes after Christmas (hopefully, a christmas present will be able to help us out in making them!) Look out for everything, including new video podcasts as well as audio podcasts, for those lucky listeners who have iPod videos or similar.

So hold on, keep us in iTunes, do not forget about us, we're coming back!

Fantastic Teenage Advice - Josh Shipp

Recently, an internationally known speaker for school assemblies, youth conferences, colleges, and educational events got in touch with us. He has spoken to over ONE MILLION PEOPLE, hosted a REALITY TV SHOW, and has shared the stage with BILL COSBY. Josh has the ability to connect on a rare level, to inspire, motivate and get young people to THINK about their lives.
We think that he was impressed with our podcast (we hope so anyway!) and he said that maybe you guys would like to know about him if anyone ever has any problems.
So if you need any advice about anything at all concerning teenage life, we really recommend that you get in touch with him - he is hugely well-known!
If you do have any thing that you would like his advice on, please click HERE to leave him your problem - or if you would just like to check out his site, please click on his banner underneath.
He has his own podcast, even his own TV series!

Episode 5

Episode 5 came very quickly!!!
Here we are already - only two days after Episode 4. But there's so much to pack into the episodes - we couldn't just do we did two!!!
Hope you like it!!!

Remember: for our competition, for our website and for our blog!

Thursday, July 20, 2006


We've read some of the comments that have been coming in, and we're not sure that they are coming from actual people, and not from an automatic computer thing.
They are talking about things which really have no connection with us at all - they are all about the graphics on our website!
We don't want to know how good the graphics are on our website, and we don't really want to hear all your comments about how good it is. We're interested in the podcast, not our website.
We're going to turn word verication on, so everytime you write a comment, you will have to copy the picture in the box. This is something that computer's cannot do!
Hopefully, this will work!

OK, right!!!

OK, right, this is what we are gonna do.
We don't know who is listening to our podcast - we know that people are, but we don't know who!
So...we will be releasing ONE MORE episode of our podcast! In this podcast, we will be including this message.

After this podcast (Episode 4), there will be no more episodes of TalkTeen, UNLESS you guys tell us that you are listening to it!
We think this is fair - so if you are listening to this podcast, don't think that someone else will say that they are listening to it - you need to come forward, add a comment to this note (to do that, click on the pencil), email us on or enter our competition on our website! We need to know that you are enjoying (or just listening) to our podcast, otherwise there is no point of doing it, is there?
Thank you and please, please, please, leave a comment!
Thank you!

Saturday, June 24, 2006

Come on, our technology is telling us that 11 people signed up yesterday, so where is everyone?

We need you!!!
This is called TalkTeen, we talk about teenagers and things that affect and interest us, but a talk can't be with just one person! Where is everyone?
