The idea is to do a podcast. I like podcasts, and they are easy to make. I'll be the 'host' guy, and there will be contributions from anyone who wants to contribute and has the slightest, even the slightest, amount of communicative ability. Flap those jaws. Go ahead. Sound coming out? You might be qualified.
It'll be a variety kind of thing with a few different segments. Right now I am not putting too many restrictions on it, I'll make a first episode, decide what worked and what didn't, and consider any response it gets.
So this topic is to see who will contribute and what you can contribute. If you have a specific idea for an audio segments - comedy, or something - then go ahead and submit that to me and it might go in if it isn't boring or terrible sound quality. There's no point in just putting everything in if some of the submissions aren't any fun or interesting to listen to, so if you do want to do something like that then it'll probably need at least a little effort put into it i.e. write down what you're gonna say roughly beforehand, or do some editing work before you send it over.
Otherwise, if you are comfortable with the idea of a live skype call which I'll be a part of and help direct the conversation a bit, then we can do that. You can also do this with different participants and send it to me and it might go in. I think a good proportion of live back and forth is important in terms of making this feel alive - not just a series of monologues, although like I said with the requisite amount of effort and creativity put into it they can be great.
This is a preliminary topic. I'm going to make this, and how fast it gets done depends on the amount of submissions. If I have to end up doing 90% of the first episode, so be it. If it is good and people see a result I'm sure submissions would become more plentiful. I'm doing this for fun right now, just because I like to make things. This is also a very good idea for core community content if this place was ever to start growing again.
So say whatever you want about the idea or ask questions. Also if you can help out, post here or pm me if you'd rather. I'll update when I'm actively working on the first episode.
