Okay, so I guess I lied when I said that this would probably be a shorter podcast. Whoops! Completely unintentional, I assure you.

Also said protégé when I meant prodigy. Close enough, right?

Special thanks to every single person involved in the various facets of the NGADM! You know who you are. And you're amazing.

Background Music: Edge of the Blade, Forever Fantasy 2015, and Gunslinger's Code: Keep Moving Forward.

You make me blush

ChronoNomad responds:

Then my work here is done.

Aww yeah! Just as well-produced as the first one. Not quite as concise, but that's understandable. :) I wish we could have an ongoing discussion podcast with at least a couple of the judges that breaks down all the match-ups. Maybe that's more realistic for future rounds.

I appreciate the advert for the NGUAC, as well as your acknowledgement of the good sportsmanship at around the 5-minute mark.

The music in the background is amazing, of course, but personally I think the guitar music toward the beginning and the uplifting VGM at around 4:00 work better than the light piano music at 3:00 or so. The vocals aren't particularly fast-paced, so when the music gives the podcast some drive and energy, I think it works best.

I'm looking forward to your future podcasts about the NGADM, though. The competitors also probably really appreciate the biweekly injection of positivity. :)

ChronoNomad responds:

Yeah, I think this is pretty good for just freewheeling without any kind of script or anything, and I don't want it to make it too dry by making it overly professional. I am seriously considering adding match-ups in later rounds to the podcast, but I don't want to butcher anyone's pseudonyms, so we'll have to see.

You are very welcome! Just trying to spread the word in my own little way. :D

Yeah, I totally know what you're saying, but then there are others who have mentioned how much they enjoy the softer, more Fantasy-inspired music. I knew pretty instinctively what I wanted to use for the intro and ending, but the centerpiece was a bit more of a question mark. Believe it or not, it's tough to find musical puzzle pieces that fit the overall length of the podcast well. In this one I ended up having a bit more silence, but that seems to work out okay.

Awesome! These do seem to be surprisingly well-received, so I might as well keep cranking them out. I think we can all use the infusion of positive vibes, no doubt. Thank you for the stellar review!

This is better than the first podcast! Music is like oxygen to me too, lol. I'm almost always listening to a song or instrumental. I have a small handful of playlists on YouTube that I have to listen to.

Have you ever been a radio DJ? Because as I listened, it seemed like I was listening to internet radio. =) Smooth music transitions and good choices. I still like the mellow fantasy-theme-like instrumental of yours.

I'll be sure to check out the auditions that made it into round one, and read the insightful reviews from the judges. I might look at some that did not make it.

ChronoNomad responds:

Aw, thanks! I think the quality of the recording has certainly improved over the previous one. I often refer to the music I listen to as the "soundtrack of my life." And I've got plenty of good music stockpiled all over (which definitely includes on YouTube) that I can play on a whim. But I also enjoy the music of nature quite a bit, as well. Wind, birdsong, and the rhythm of rain are a few of my favorites.

I have not actually been a radio DJ, though I've given it serious thought before. I think it could be pretty awesome, actually. But I have done voice acting and voice over work, enjoy singing, and usually do quite well in any job that requires speaking with others, either in person or on the phone.

I'm glad to hear that the background music fit well and transitioned nicely. I quite love the Fantasy-themed tracks, as well. With a podcast of this length, I really wanted to start out with something strong, then move on to a more mellow feel, and finish with something encouraging.

Great! Ectisity was kind enough to put together a playlist of the Audition tracks that earned a spot in the Round of 64, so I would suggest heading over to his profile for easy access. The rest are easy enough to find thanks to the comprehensive Newgrounds search bar.

Thanks once again for dropping by, and I really appreciate your feedback! *Hugs*

Nice ;)

ChronoNomad responds:

Thanks! :D

You're an entertaining speaker. and I enjoyed the podcast. I'm looking forward to hearing the upcoming tracks, and reading the judges' reviews, which I learned a lot from in previous years. I'll miss Step's reviews though :(

ChronoNomad responds:

Thanks, BlueOceans! I'm glad that you enjoyed listening. It's also great to hear that you're going to keep up with the NGADM, and I want you to know that I was personally rooting for you. Sticking with your first track may have been a better choice, but hey--who knows? That's the risk of changing tracks midstream.

We all miss Step and his unbelievably in-depth reviews! I did try to convince him to actually enter the contest this year, but he's just way too busy. Such is life.
