the showhole 0016: zencastrdisaster

Recorded 6/13/2017


It's the first (and probably last) time we tried recording this in Zencastr. Things did not go so great. Brent's file was about seven minutes shorter than ours. I thought, that's OK, he'll be gone for either seven minutes at the beginning or end of the podcast. Wrong! There were gaps all through the show. I have no idea how that happened. It would go fine for five minutes and then Brent would be thirty seconds ahead of us. Also, Jasen and I have audio drops all through the show. 

I was tempted to trash this but I decided, hey, what a great ad for this podcasting software. I might as well piece it together as well as I could and just put it out there. So, enjoy all of the weird, awkward silences spread around all three of us. We were actually saying things, I promise!

the showhole 0014: a great shame

Recorded 5/22/2017


"Yes, I'm a Colonel. I'm fabulously rich. I am a magnate of the restaurant industry, my dear, the king of an empire that I built with my bare hands. I took a sabbatical from my duties in order to see the world, see what else could possibly be out there, and on the course of my journey I found what I was looking for."

Her heart fluttered wildly in the space of his pauses. In spite of everything, she found herself hanging on his every word.

The holenotes took a ton of time. So did editing this podcast. That's why I've decided to do both differently. How? First, instead of going through the episode minute by minute and taking meticulous notes for the holenotes, I am going to write whatever I want for each episode. Maybe it will sort of make sense, like this week. Maybe I will write about my favorite brand of toilet paper. Who knows. Second, instead of going through the episode minute by minute meticulously editing, I'm going to take a quick pass (also know as the good ole college try) to clean some things up and add in some sound clips that may or may not have anything to do with the actual things we have discussed in the episode. Basically, whatever I have an idea to throw in there is what you're going to get. Also, the embarassing stuff I normally edit out stays in! The burps, farts, inappropriate personal insults and borderline gross XXX comments - you get it all unless it was so truly horrible that I wrote down on my index card that it absolutely, positively has to go!

What does all of this mean for you, the listener? You'll get the episode a lot faster. That's great, right? Sure, it will be a bit sloppier and a lot less polished. So what? You're not coming here for perfection. You're coming here for a tiny escape from the drudgery that is your boring life. Face it, that's what you want, that's what you need and, by golly, that's what you're going to get.
