About 2 years ago, back when my commute was first affecting my life, twitter follower TheHussman suggested I try doing a podcast while I drove. Given that I generally have an hour and a half or so of driving twice a day (so 3 hours total) the idea did appeal to me, but at the time I was not sure I could manage it. All I have, after all, is a cell phone.
I decided to give it a try today, and this is what occurred. Now that I have done it I have a few ideas on how to do it better, but the question is this: SHOULD I? The audio quality is never going to be great unless I get a lapel mic of some sort, plus the wind noise you hear is my cars AC (Its Florida, that aint getting turned off). Its unstructured, raw, and completely at random.
But is it interesting?
I discuss the Ion Fury debacle in this, my anniversary (today!), a bit about Control, and a few other things as well as random asides as I sit in traffic.
Ideas for future podcasts:
I could in theory do this weekly. What I was thinking was on Saturday's opening up the next week to Topic ideas from you fine patrons, as well as finding a couple of things I wanna discuss. Record on Monday on my way home, post it here, release to the world on Thursday. This again gives you Patrons another reward (have me discuss your topic!) plus more content, and maximization of my free time. Obviously I will want to get an intro and outro, and do some light editing like adding in a midroll ad of some sort if I choose, but otherwise it will be as it sounds here: raw, messy, and random as hell.
