Not bad for a first run, a lot of podcasts only find their footing after like 20+ eps or some shit.
Yay, feedback! :D
It's pretty hard to find any of that on YouTube, so I just go by analytics.
I listened to the whole thing. It feels too sparse and unfocused, you should have points ready to go through, you don't need to follow them strictly or anything but it needs drive, even the most lax conversational podcasts feel like they have more direction even if they are 90% digressions simply because they do emphasise their jumping off points. I like listening to people just shooting the shit as much as any highly produced audio show, but this seemed borderline awkward at times.
I agree, it did feel borderline awkward at times. The problem was we ran the first 45 minutes and xsplit wasn't picking up the Skype audio so we had to restart. We simply ran out of topics by that point and it started to feel a little awkward. The first 45 minutes were great, no awkwardness and many laughs were had. Too bad nobody will ever see it :(
I agree with the "hit these points" though I think it should be very vague... Something like "let's check out some new game releases" instead of "did you hear about this?" (maybe some of that) - I really just want to sit back and have a good time with a few people on-air. The entertainment value, I've found, comes from that :)
It was cool that you had Xelu on about CJ though that was some choice content. This is one man's opinion, it is supposed to be a form of entertainment after all right? I dunno \_(ツ)_/
Hey, any man's opinion is just as valid as the others'
Are you the one who introduces it?
So far i'm the one who starts it all off, yeah. There's a bunch of pre-podcast talk and general BS that goes on so I can play with audio levels, but once we start everyone's quiet until I say the intro line.
Is the 'host' roster set or is it just whoever is available?
The host will always be me unless i'm unavailable, then it's Lyzen. If not him, then that means two out of the four casters are gone and there won't be a podcast that week.
If so does that mean it's not going to be released at fixed intervals(weekly? Is the time fixed at an hour (give or take a minute or two)?
Should be every Friday at about 4 PM MST though usually somebody's late, so give it a few minutes.
Is it on iTunes? Is there an RSS feed? Will either of these things happen in the foreseeable future?
I don't think there will be an RSS or iTunes version, YouTube tends to cover both of those. iTunes probably never because there are some visual things occasionally involved, though we'll try to avoid those as much as possible.
Is a guest a requirement for every episode?
Nope, though it's nice if we can get one; and we do try.
Do you record separately while in a call then lay the recordings over each other or do you just record the call?
I use XSplit's local recording setting, which dumps everything into one file.
I listen to like 20 podcasts a week so I guess that's why I'm p interested in what you're doing, assuming it get's better with each episode (it will) I'll evangelise it however I can (we flash regs gotta represent nahmsayin'?)
Yay, thanks :D
