Well we have recorded the first Global Geek Podcast.
It was fun and we had a blast. The only thing that kept going through my brain was I hope this is OK. Yes I was nervous and I am not sure how it came across. In fact we both had fun, and I guess that’s what podcasting is all about; for me anyway.
Technically, Hot Recorder behaved itself so that was good, we didn’t loose the whole show with that barfing. Sebastian had some trouble with his microphone initially. Mine was set and sounded good. But then Sebastian “hacked” Skype to allow him to control the audio settings so that his audio was loud enough. But the big mistake on my part was not then doing another test to make sure I was loud enough compared with me. I wasn’t. I was not inaudible though just a lot softer then I would have like to be. But I guess if that’s the biggest mistake we made then it did not go badly at all.
This show was basically an intro show, nothing too hard or challenging. We talked about what we have been doing and what we had done to prepare for the show. Played a bit of music which is cool. While we joked around a fair bit I hope that we can talk about some serious topics when we need to. But it was a blast and a good way to ease into the whole thing. Just don’t know if people will listen to the whole thing! I hope they do. I guess that’s what it is like for anyone that does anything public; an author hoping that their book will get read, a musician hoping that someone will buy the album.
Anyway be kind, the first show so don’t hammer it too badly! I am hoping to have the show up in the next 24 hours.
