Put the show back on the road

Time to pump out a quick one and get packed and out of here… thanks to KMarie and Trev for hosting the party! And thanks to my loveliest for letting me take the laptop on “vacation”. I’m including an audio clip from the Cobert Report (a first) and speak to receiving my first comment spam (moderated to bitbucket) and why the spammers can’t win in the long run. Some progress in post-production, obviously not quite what we want but better than ever I think.

Special bonus edition: let the convo continue!

Bleh I had show notes all drafted but then decided to just speak them into the podcast… so what’s left? Hyperlinks:

Music is “Ulanbator” by Happy Elf published by WM Recordings.

You could read this for context of the conversation we’re having (but don’t bother listening to it as my message is included in this ep.

Audio excerpt from the Sept 10 ep of EGC. Follow that link to find Mark Foreman and Robert G. Parent, cool?

…I guess is it!

Back at ya, Dave

Interview fun with KMarie

Wherein Rob spends a few minutes with my sister “KMarie” and listens to her recite large portions of a WHOLE CHAPTER from memory for the bible verse of the day (1 Cor 13), almost but not quite says “who cares about accuracy in the bible” (oops), sends a shout out and mad props to Dad, and discusses her upcoming huge changes in her life in that she’s about to start a new job and also is preparing to adjust the television viewing habits of herself and her family, mentions the Zen TV Experiment (Google it), discovers his sister has the same bedtime habit he does, talks about the weather while he stalls for time dialing in the next portion of the show, plays the awe-inspiring lead-in to one of my favorite podcasts Evil Genius Chronicles, discusses the power of no-edit podcast production, introduces the Creative Commons license (and the need to state the license for my show), and speaks to the future of copyright… oh and I guess I take a passing slam about restrictive copyrights in the Christian Recording Industry which I will need to revisit soon.

[I flubbed the first take (forgot to hit pause and actually record the show). After the ep you hear here (ha) we shut of the mic and KMarie stated she now understands what I trying to explain when I told her the verve is lost by a second take… she rocked 1 Cor 13 in the first attempt. Oh well. I’m continuing to struggle with mic levels and the like, but hope to master this sort of thing soon, heh.]

Interview Fun with Neal Guye

Wherein Rob reaches out to Neal for some content, by way of some feedback acknowledgment including some high-value informationally-dense soundbites, discussion of trying to find some true high-value content, why you won’t be hearing much about current events on RRR, then provokes the censors for the first time in response to a new thought about ancient podcasters, and listens to an interesting story about jerks and an uncomfortable moment and a need to forgive, an escape, a copyright violation, some minutes on the tech at hand, then puts the show on the road and answers the question “what’s he smoking”, speaks to another option, and quitting, and calls it a show.

[There’s a weird gap about 10 minutes in, I don’t know what happened, must have kicked the recorder or something… anyway I think you can pretty much understand everything he says, and though I would like this to sound even better… I think it’s good enough. Do you agree?]

Immediate feedback (and delay)

Wherein Rob responds to feedback received (nearly immediately and thanks SO much!) from the first episode, and answers “so how do you record it” and speaks to why he’s doing a podcast (and not something else), plugs BitBlaster Internet Services and acknowledges the need for actual content.

The verse of the day is Colossians 1:17. Music is “Bingo in the Country” by Happy Elf published by WM Recordings.

[This was not my best episode ever (ha ha cracking myself up here) but I did put it in the can quickly (and then bogged getting it produced and uploaded). I almost said “not good enough” but who am I kidding, it’s gonna take practice and time before I’ll have my chops down. So yes, I’ll take Neal and George’s advice — plus others I heard from after I recorded this — and put it out there and move on to the next ep. Before I could release it I did hear from a bunch of others… more than one of you said I needed to put a little more attention on the mix volume levels. This one is better that way and hopefully satisfactory].

Do let me know what you think! 🙂

It’s all experimental anyway…

My lunch hour is almost over so I had to move quick… and I’m working at home and unshowered so it’ll all make sense when you see it. I’m assuming you either have iTunes or are a Linux hacker with mad skillz… if that’s not the case do let me know. Not too shabby, from idea to conception in under half an hour. Of course it’s goofy but that’s fine for the moment.

Item #1 on my Why list answers the first obvious question… a more interesting question is, do you even want to see video?

Video!

Open voicemail to Dave Slusher: Why?

Hello Dave,

Attached please find my response to your question “why do you podcast”. This was a fun exercise for me (and I know at least one of my listeners will appreciate the density of information in my short clip to you). Best wishes for your session!

Rob

[META: it’s all meta anyway… the brilliant part of having no set format is I’m free to wander away from it even before it gels 🙂 My “podcasting buddy” Dave Slusher asked his listeners and here’s my answer… might as well share with my vast listening audience]

Why podcast?

Feed fun

Should anyone care to, please subscribe to http://feeds.feedburner.com/RobsRoadtripRadio (the happy RSS icon on the right) and not the RSS link below. I’m out of gas but will come back soon and fix this all up nice… and the raw RSS feed will change. The Feedburner link should be good indefinitely. If nothing else, this additional layer of separation is a nice value-add from Feedburner… and they seem to do a lot more so enjoy!

[I think I hid the raw WordPress URL so nevermind… with that, I’m going to bed!]
