I’m a Podcaster Now
I have been listening to podcasts for years, but now I have become a podcaster myself. I’ve been a guests on podcasts before. I’ve thought about doing my own for years. I even had a podcast about The Legend of the Seeker set up in iTunes a few years ago, but never did it because I couldn’t find a cohost. Now I’ve finally motivated myself enough to do it. Beginning this month, I’ll be on two introcasts (introductory podcasts).
One is called Intro to Brisco. It’s a podcast about The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. My cohost Caitlin and I are new to the series. I’ve been meaning to watch this show for a while. I bought the DVDs about 3 or 4 years ago, but never got around to them. Now I have a chance. I’ve heard good things about it. Matt and Mel are veterans of the show. We just spend 3 hours recording our first episode. The pilot episode of Brisco was 2 hours and we had lots of feedback.
The other one is called Downbelow: A Babylon 5 IntroCast. As you can probably tell, it’s a podcast about Babylon 5, which is one of my favorite TV shows ever. Cohost Ian is also a veteran and Elisabeth and Heidi are newbies. I’m so excited to introduce people to this show. We’ve released 2 episodes already. The pilot movie was 2 hours and it took a long time to cover it.
I’m having fun so far doing these podcasts. It’s a lot of work. I hope people understand that I’m new and it will take a little while for everyone to become comfortable. I’m learning a lot. I got some new equipment this past week and learning how to properly use it has been a slightly frustrating experience. I’m also learning audio editing using Audacity. Give these shows a try if they sound interested. Constructive criticism is appreciated.
