annettle and myself today vaguely planned, recorded, edited and posted the first (hopefully of many) episode in our regular podcast named Is it Nap Time?. You can download the individual episode itself here or you can subscribe to the podcast as a whole here. We’re not listed in the itunes shop podcast directory yet (though we will be) but you can open itunes, click on the Advanced menu, then click “Subscribe to Podcast” and paste http://feeds.feedburner.com/IsItNapTime into the dialog box.
It took around four hours to Plan .. (“What do you want to talk about?” “I dunno. What do you want to talk about?”) .. Record… (“Umm…” [Dead Air] “…Ummmmm”) … Edit … (“Make me sound taller.”) .. and Post the thing to the RSS feed.
Be warned, it’s our first effort – more of a technical trial to make sure that the process we mapped out actually works and produces a fetchable podcast at the end of it. We had loads of issues with mic levels and whatnot, but we figure we’ll learn How To Do It pretty shortly. It’s fairly content-free (especially me talking about Portal .. “Portal is a really neat game. Gosh it’s good. Back to you, Annette!”) this time but as we have to concentrate less on the process, we’ll have more say about the content.
Also, holy shit, we both say “Um” a lot. I fully intend to train myself out of that ASAP. It’s apalling, when you hear it played back.
