Re: "Extended Edition" Community Podcast

I won't be able to do something until around tomorrow eveningish. I've only got my internal mic until then anyways.

This sounds pretty great. Put me in the column of folks who will definitely be listening. And if you're ever short a person, I can come off the bench and participate.

As someone who's been a part of this sort of thing before, I'll second Zarban's suggestion about mics. The internal mics on laptops have gotten better in recent years, but getting everyone miked up with even a cheap-y USB mic makes a substantial difference, both in terms of the participants and the listener experience.

I was on the Fulltime Casual podcast for a while. Let's say it was a learning experience.

I've got the next few hours clear. Also, a professional level mic meant for recording vocals. Not a condensator mic, a dynamic one, but it should do the trick just nicely. Also, sound is being processed by a Roland UA-55.

If anybody has a Rock Band/Guitar Hero mic, I find them to be pretty good.

Good idea. I'll ask my friend to borrow one.
While scheduling is rough for me, but usually Wednesdays and Thursdays are best for me.

It's frightfully uninteresting, I'm afraid. The company I worked for had an internal, Skype-powered show, on which nerds like me addressed common tech issues. That, and I'm just a big user of Skype and Google Hangout, enough to where I can definitely attest that group videoconferencing is not as much fun when the sound is less-than-ideal. The flip side is that it's way more fun when everyone's miked-up and broadcasting from a relatively quiet room. Even the most low-end mic goes a long way.

Yep, I was going to say: I've seen people use video game mics/headsets for these purposes, and it worked satisfactorily. If you have one of these, you might be good to go.

Re: "Extended Edition" Community Podcast

I was gonna suggest some sort of trial run at this tonight, but I've only just got back home and I'm rather tired.

Although, feel free to try something out amongst yourselves. It is a community thing after all!

Re: "Extended Edition" Community Podcast

how is everyone's availability? We're looking to record something next Wednesday (24th)

The plan is to start with half hour episodes and record two at a time so half an hour talking about Doctor Who for example then another half hour on the next topic.

Also feel free to post topics you'd like to talk about I'm currently thinking something like:

  • Doctor Who

  • Game of Thrones

  • Summer Movies we're looking forward too

  • Comics we're reading

What do you all think?

Re: "Extended Edition" Community Podcast

Forgive me, but what's the format/method of communication, somebody mentioned Google Hangout? How does that work?

I don't like the sound of my voice so I probably won't engage that way (don't have a mic either), but listening in would be fun.

Re: "Extended Edition" Community Podcast

I've been pricing out mic set ups and should be able to get one by Wednesday and test it out. I'm usually available all day on Wednesday, except between 11-12.

As for Google Hangout, it works through Google+ and you can set up a video/audio chat for Google+ contacts. I think you can set it up then link to it and people can then sign in to it. Teague did that for his music discussion chat. So, I did google.com/hangout and you can start a hang out there. So, whoever hosts it can start it there, then post the link here in the thread, like this:

I work weekdays until about nine, so I won't be able to participate Wednesday unless it happens properly late/early for the rest of the world.  tongue

Re: "Extended Edition" Community Podcast

I don't really have a mic setup, but the one on my laptop is pretty solid, and I have a good internet connection, so that should help. I'm free Wednesday evening, east coast time.

Re: "Extended Edition" Community Podcast

I work weekdays until 4:30pm. That's GMT+1. And I'm not really ready until about 9pm.

But we really should do a test run first.

Yowza, that's late. But ok!

Remind me when the time comes. If it's DW, I don't need to do much prepping. I know most of it tongue

Re: "Extended Edition" Community Podcast

Yes, but is your information and banter entertaining to listen to? An hour of "let me tell you about how knowledgeable I am" isn't going to be of interest to anyone who wasn't on the panel at the time.

Re: "Extended Edition" Community Podcast

Entertaining? I for one plan to spend the entire time complaining about the Teselecta.

Warning: I'm probably rewriting this post as you read it.

I can get Audacity (died with the last computer) and have head phones. Working on a mic set up but not as stressed about it.

So, 5 pm EST, which is 2 PST, do I have that right?

And what is the topic du Jour? Doctor Who? I'll pass for a semi informed fan, who is not has familiar with 11th doctor as 9th and 10th.

Do I qualify?  cool

Re: "Extended Edition" Community Podcast

I think we should do a bit of a test and talk about ourselves and how we got into DiF and what not before going on to Doctor Who or one of the other topics. so we can test the technical set up and format.

and yes that is 2pm PST.

So is that Owen, Fireproof, Dave and myself who can make the recording?

I'll post a Googlehangout link here closer to the time and anyone else who wants to can join can
