Every Episode of The-N.com N-Sider Podcast

I spent almost nine years at Nickelodeon’s networks Noggin 1Now called Nick Jr. and The N 2Now called TeenNick. doing lots of different jobs. Among other stuff, I co-created a sitcom, ran one of the first web radio series, wrote lots of Degrassi specials, blogged, produced online games, and authored promotional tampon fiction. But the part of my job that I consistently enjoyed the most was recording The-N.com’s N-Sider Podcast every week with The-Mary.

The-Mary was head writer and blogger for The-N.com, beloved by the army of teen girls that comprised our audience. I blogged too as The-Seth, to bring a rare male voice into The N and because the network didn’t have to pay me any extra. During an exceptionally boring stretch in the summer of 2006, I decided I needed something new to do, so I IMed Mary and told her that I thought we should start a podcast.

I came up with a pretty simple idea for it, based on three principles: 1) All of The N’s shows premiered new episodes on Friday nights. 2) The episodes were watched by teen girls. 3) Teen girls like to talk on the phone. So every Friday night after the new episodes aired, The-Mary and I would chat on the phone about the shows, then post our conversation online. That was it. 3BTS note for fans: Mary and I never once talked on Friday night. We recorded every episode in advance, usually a couple of days before. The podcast would start with a ring, end with a hang-up, and would feel to the listener like they were just on the phone with friends. Our boss The-Amanda liked the idea but suggested that — as insurance against the very real possibility that Mary and I were super boring — we call up one the network’s stars every week and chat with them too. So we did.

I guess it was a good idea, because The N-Sider Podcast ran for over three years and nearly 150 episodes. 4That’s somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 hours of programming. From June 2006 to August 2009 we had close to 100 guests, some of whom went on to become the shit, or at least some of the shit: Drake, Nina Dobrev, Laila Ali. We cracked the top 20 on iTunes. We once even broadcast a live episode with over a dozen guests at multiple simultaneous locations within the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square, all using just a couple of flip phones. 5Keep in mind that this was 2007, when podcasting was still new. The N-Sider Podcast finished its three-year run a week before Marc Maron’s WTF debuted.

Fans have off-and-on over the last three years asked me if there was a place for them to hear all of the episodes. Now, finally, there is. I tried to be careful putting together this archive, but doubtlessly I messed something up, so please tell me if you find it or have any suggestions for improvement.

Most of all, thank you to everyone who listened to me and The-Mary blabber for so, so long.

So a while back a tweet was reblogged on Kary Degrassi’s site that was from Lauren Collins sharing the news that this podcast was up. From that day I slowly made my way through the Degrassi podcasts. Today I listened to the last one (and The-Seth’s goodbye) and I just wanted to say that I throughly enjoyed the experience, especially since we have an idea about what has happened to these stars ever since. A shining moment was Nina Dobrev gushing about Aislinn Paul, who stars in Heroes: Reborn upon ending her Degrassi career. I hope that more people will be able to find this amazing podcast! A true show that was ahead of its time, indeed.

This took me so far back to my pre-teen/teen years that it hurt my heart lol I stayed up all night and the-n crossed my mind with all the shows I use to watch and the podcast I listened to I am amazed that you are doing this and so thankful that someone out there still cares to give some people a little taste of the-n it was in my opinion the best network out there and it sucks because teen nick never plays the old shows and turned it into a cheesy kid network you are awesome ❤️❤️

Is there any way to listen to the old podcasts ? I used to so be obsessed back in the day and I miss your guys podcast so much. I wanna relive it lol

Thanks Amber. Those episodes are all available on this very page, but it looks like they’re not working in mobile browsers. Until I fix it, you can access them by viewing this page on a computer.

i just realized that my itunes has apparently spit out all my podcasts. thankfully, the files are still on my computer, but they’re in alphabetical order and not chronological. Thank you for this list so now I can get them in order and listen to them again, 10 years later! I also feel like I should watch all the episodes that were new at the time of each podcast. Except Beyond the Break is just nowhere to be found on the entire internet.

Omg i just spent my whole life searching for some shit on the-MA and wound up here. Seth you were one of my favorite mods. My heart is crying right now.
