If you are a regular reader of the rail you would have noticed that all goes quiet on on Rooster’s Rail from about Sunday through Tuesday. Give or take. Well the reason is that I am usually recording, editing, uploading and writing show notes for The Global Geek Podcast. No time for blogging.
The podcast is out early this week! So here I am on a Monday night blogging and it feels great. Although it might not happen every week! I have refined just how I do things a bit better now. I or I should say we now as Knightwise has decided to join The Global Geek Podcast as a regular co-host and partner in crime and infamy! That is huge and I am very, grateful for his belief in the podcast and that he wants to be a part of it. Anyway, it looks like we can meet on-line and get the show recorded in about one hour and 10 minutes. That means that I can edit the show the same night and finish it the next day. We are hoping to streamline the details behind the scenes even further to cut down on time.
I heard a podcast the other day that said for every minute that you record and broadcast means four minutes of time. That’s time researching the stories, recording, editing, uploading and writing show notes. So my podcast is about an hour. That works out to be four hours. That is about right if things went smoothly. Which they never do. In addition it does not take into account my OCD and my attention to detail if not perfection. So suffice to say it takes longer than that! (a lot longer…)
I think the show is great this week. The content is good and we announce a sponsor for the show. We feel privileged to have the support of a company and we hope to do them proud of their association with podcasting. This is important. Companies and businesses need to feel that they have confidence in podcasting and podcasters to deliver. Otherwise we won’t get the support that makes shows like ours possible; or networks like
We are very excited about this show and for that reason you should check it out. Make sure you listen in to be in the running to win stuff! It is a celebration of our 20th show!! In addition check out the links at the bottom of the show notes to download for free the music that was used in the podcast for that week. Have a listen to the previous shows as well, same applies; the details are at the end of the show notes for each show. Great song this week called “Alone” – it is the backing track at the end of the show. Check it out, great song.
I am not going to tell you everything about the show, I have to give you some reasons for listening! So go have a listen and a laugh with us.
Damn, I love podcasting!
