So, the more I think about it the more I'm sure I'm going to try and do a podcast. The enthusiasm from simply mentioning it was heartening and it will assist in my plans for New Eden cultural domination. The podcast won't be launched until the late fall / early winter. I don't want to try and start a major undertaking during the summer silly season.
The most important part of a podcast is the name. Ok, not really; the most important part is the content, but the name is the most important thing I can do now right now.
Andrew suggested "Geeks In Space". Its not grabbing me. For one thing, its very generic and I would like something a bit more Eve-centric. So I had some ideas:
After Action Report
Call To Arms
Broadcasts from the Ninveah
Will Shoot For ISK
Will Kill For ISK
Caldari Underground Radio
Council of Stellar Mismanagement
(New one: Achille's Belly Button from Andrew as he walked by... I really need to close my office door.)
Vote in the comments! (Note: I reserve the right to ignore all of you)
As for content, I really like the format of Shut Up We're Talking where they pick some topics beforehand and discuss them on the podcast, giving opinions and discussing it from their points of view. I would like to do the same thing but mostly Eve-centric. I'm thinking myself hosting with a rotating group of guests depending on availability, etc.
I don't want it to become a huge part of my free time so I am aiming for a bi-weekly posting schedule with the podcast, maybe monthly if that proves to be too hectic. I don't want my gaming time to be completely replaced by recording and editing !
So there you have it, a draft of the idea. And comments or suggestions would be welcome.
