Today’s the day when I point you, Dear Reader, to the latest Shut Up, We’re Talking. And strut about like a peacock, ’cause I got to be on it.
The discussion revolved around two topics: the impending transition of D&D Online to a free-to-play, and the Xfire stats I posted last week. The other panelist was Anjin from the Bullet Points Blog, another great source of news and insight. Much good dicussion was had, many good points were raised, and a good time was had by all. Give it a listen.
This is the first time I’ve been on a podcast, but it’s something I’ve thought about doing on an ongoing basis. There are steps that’d need to be taken first, of course, starting with me getting just a little more comfortable behind the microphone, so as to stop stammering like a nimrod and starting everything off with “um”s and “ah”s. And second, of course, would be the microphone itself. For SUWT I used my headset mike, which is a pretty decent headset mike, but sounded, to my ear, very tinny on the actual broadcast. I do have another microphone which is also kind of a cheapie, but I can only use it with the laptop for unclear technical reasons.
I’ve played around a bit with Audacity to the point where I think I could edit and assemble a podcast passably well, but the holdup has generally been a dearth of material, in that I have generally already blogged about stuff I want to talk about, and I don’t want to go over the same material again. It’s another project for the future, for now.
