This is the start.

I just don’t know of what.

Well, I mean, I do know. It’s going to be the website where I am going to post the links so people can listen to the Podcast that I am going to create with my friends.

But I don’t know where that will lead.

Most likely it will just be a few people who listen out of morbid curiosity, who happen to be friends of mine, for a few weeks. After that it will teeter off. Oh well. I’m out the cost of a few old microphones, adapters and microphone stands. That and I’ll have managed to fill the void in my brain that thrives on producing something that has been left desolate after I stopped working at the student paper.

If, though, people actually do listen to this thing for a while, I’ll consider it a success. When it comes down to it, I’m doing this because it is something I have always wanted to do. I’ve been interested in talk radio since middle school. I grew up an avid listener of Orlando’s 104.1 WTKS, an entertainment-based talk radio station. I went to college really wanting to do radio, but I was lured away by the potentials of journalism.

If only I knew.

Recently though I have become a really big fan of Podcasts around town. The main one being A Mediocre Time with Tom and Dan (www.TomandDan.com), who was the subject of an article I wrote for the student newspaper at UCF. When I was talking to those guys,  they talked about how great of a medium a Podcast is, as it is readily accessible by tons of potential listeners and dirt-cheap to get off the ground. Eventually the words they were saying sunk in, and I decided to give it a go, because I had the things I needed.

Computer, check. Some microphones, check. A friend who knows how to do audio things? Check.

Really interesting people telling funny stories and having funny conversations? Oh, you bet that is a check.

If you are looking for in-depth commentary about political matters, this is not the Podcast for you.

What this will be is a collection of the moronic, interesting and pointless things my friends and I talk about nearly any time you put us in the same vicinity. Except they will be recorded for you all to enjoy.

So, hopefully, with a handful of junk electronics and nothing to really say, we can make something you all will enjoy.

    This sounds awesome, I’m looking forward to it. Are you going to be using that graphic in the banner for the podcast? It did a great job of grabbing my attention. Has a retro look to it.

  2. Thanks man, I really appreciate the kind words. I hope you like the Podcast.

  3. Oh, and yeah, this is our banner. Helvetica makes everything pretty.
