Binaural audio recording has always fascinated me since I first heard it and learned about it college oh so many years ago. In 1992, a binaural microphone setup cost $10,000 or move. Bad news, in 2016, a Neumann KU 100 Dummy Head Microphone costs $8,000, but there are several cheaper alternatives.
A lot of people ask me what podcasts I subscribe to. Zach Woolf and I did a recent Major Spoilers Top Five episode where we run down our top five shows, but people are still wondering what else is on my list.
I’m working on something for podcasters, and those that want to podcast. I think it will be a good resource for everyone, and will pull back the curtain a bit on what we do on the Major Spoilers Podcast Network. But I need your help.
Since 2005 I’ve been podcasting my thoughts to the world. It started with The Coolness Roundup that I co-hosted with Charlie White, and has since grown to include seven weekly shows on the Major Spoilers Podcast Network. Over the years, the gear that I use to record podcasts has changed, but for the last four years, I’ve settled on a couple of different setups for the various shows I produced.
This is an aside to something else I’m working on.
I was really surprised at the feedback following my first podcasting article, and the number or requests for additional information. You asked for it, and now you’re getting it.
Podcasting is now old school. It’s been around long enough that the bleeding edge, and early adopters have established methods and procedures that now make it easy for others to jump on the bandwagon. You can be a podcaster too, and in this installment I’ll cover some of the gear you’ll need to think about getting as you jump through the hoops on your way to building your own podcasting empire.
About once a week, I receive a request in the Major Spoilers Mailbox asking to spill the secrets of the Major Spoilers Podcast and Critical Hit: A Major Spoilers Dungeons and Dragons Podcast. The great thing about podcasts is the cost of entry is really low, but you might want to run through this Top Ten list before deciding to jump on the podcasting wagon.
On this drive home, I comment about poor shooting and how learning from one’s mistakes and practicing leads to more satisfaction and excitement in everything you do.
More inane drivel from the middle of nowhere as I drive home from another basketball game. This time around I tackle resolutions and goals and how playing it S.M.A.R.T. can help you achieve anything.
Thought I would take a swing at an audio blog where I just give thoughts on the goings on in my life. In this first outing I drive home from a basketball game and complain that weather people are right 50% of the time.
