Members Only Sneak Preview – Recap Podcast

Don’t usually do Members only things (yet), mostly because we haven’t had members for very long.  But since we are moving into podcasting, I thought it was only right to let the paying customers get first crack at listening to it.

Sooo.  All you VIP’s who already have the password, please rip it to shreds in the comments so I can make it better.  Thanks!

I have run the site since 2005. And I have to say I am pretty damn proud of it. I wrote the book Whalewolf (sold on Smashwords.com) and am not even close to tired so I am just going to keep going. I was born in Portland, Maine and I currently live in New York and Charlotte, North Carolina. I keep hoping that at some point all these weird rebels are gonna say: "SURPRISE!" and act normal. Eight years and counting....

    dat intro music though -- kind of long but I like it. The in-between stories/segment musics are also long, IMHO…and I like musics on podcasts, they make it more interesting. BUT, you want to use up as much time you have in your slot, for content. So maybe make ’em shorter.

    Sounds kinda tinny, but only saying that because podcast snobs usually say things like that. I can’t tell you have the a/c running though at all. If you’re concerned about this (I’m not) try recording in a room with some soft surfaces -- like more carpeting or drapes. And back off the mic a bit more, it’s giving slight feedback (and don’t feel like you need to annunciate/speak too deliberately) . I can hear you fine.

    Also, really only podcasting? I liked the writing, though. Who told you to stop writing? Please say there will still be writing.

    Otherwise, rock ON!

      Then I will keep it. I think I need a regular intro instead of describing the show. Maybe put some lazers in it.

      I had them at 15 seconds in and out but I will shorten them.

      I will keep tinkering. And I wanted to cover the walls with fur anyway so now is my chance!

      OMG no not only! I had to do a ton of actual work but I am getting back on track now. 🙂

      Otherwise, rock ON!

    Can I just say something about the sound quality?

    Ok, I’ve listened.

    You’re a naturally funny guy. This by itself is not enough to make up for the awful, terrible intro/outro music.

    The sound quality is pretty bad…the music is just a little too loud when you’re talking. I think you should make Bobby Jo Woods buy you a Blue Yeti to make up for steering you the wrong way with that music, which could doom your entire empire.

    You really have a knack for delivering stories, but sometimes it was a little bit ramble-y, and felt like you were reading headlines, without really having anything to comment on, or anything more than a superficial opinion. I think you have better in you. Now go out there and do it!

      Fair enough. And the rambly parts were when I was rambling. Unless I write the jokes ahead of time, that part will either need another person in it to bounce things off of. Find me better music, Mister Drum Face!

    I’m recommending a segment with Jenn and Aaron Gililand, possibly with dating advice.

    The breaks between are toooooo long but you already know that. All you need to make your ramblings better are me telling you to STFU and move on, or mocking your dumb opinions. Otherwise I basically agree although apparently I have a territory unsophisticated ear because I really didn’t have a problem with the sound quality. *Cancels plans for music career.*

    I don’t steer anyone but myself, Roger Sherman. At least I spelled your name correctly.

    Anyway, I wasn’t going to insult Acadia on his choice of um…music. I have strong opinions, but I’m learning not to make people cry with them.

    Anyway, it wasn’t that bad. I mean, it didn’t make me turn off the podcast and go to your mom’s webcam site. And yes, I’m still talking to you, Roger.

    PPS -- I can probably afford fur more than I can afford to buy a Yeti mic. My blood isn’t that rich. Maybe we can find someone to hunt you an actual yeti and get the fur that way? IDK.

    Everyone’s given much of the feedback I had. I will say, though, that if your podcast was a sine wave, it would be pretty flat. IMHO, you need to have a sprinkling of higher-energy segments -- otherwise I’m listening to NPR, but funnier. 😉

    You should record each of us shouting slurs at you and play them at random throughout the cast. Also, god told me to say this.
    Additionally, death metal might add some needed tension for the audience. And, “Never found any gold” would be a great title. Finally, gateway snack would be a great nickname. Doctors are stupid

    Stay Fray gets two accounts? WHORE!

    Also, why are Ryan Gosling and Tory Spelling on the sidebar of this atrocity? Those two are a couple of Hollywood’s oogliest people.

      That was a thing that just pulled in pics from the galleries -- but it takes up too much room so I am taking it out. And I can’t help how whorey Stay Fray is. I’M NOT A WIZARD!

Let us know what you think. Being on-topic is NOT required.
