It’s something we’ve been thinking of doing for a while now, but over the last few weeks we’ve given it much more thought. Finally, I can tell you that Vancity Filming officially has a Podcast.
The idea of a Podcast has been on the cards since we started this website less than a year ago. A lot has happened in that short time, but the podcast idea has always been there. Granted, it’s been on the back burner for some time now but the wait is finally over.
We decided to get a Blue Snowball microphone a few weeks back when we knew we’d be interviewing some people at the Fan Expo as part of our coverage of that event. We had five interviews lined up, but because of time constraints by the PR company, two of the people we were meant to interview were grouped together and we totally missed out on another because of their popularity. We did manage to interview the other two people on our list though, so it wasn’t all bad.
What’s awesome about the Blue Microphone is that we can plug it into the bottom of the iPad 2 and record our interviews using that. We were so impressed with the microphone that we went out and got a second one.
So, that’s our setup for the podcast. Two Blue Snowball Microphones, GarageBand on the MacBook, an iPad 2 and Skype.
I recorded a really brief podcast on Friday in order to get the ball rolling and get it onto iTunes so that we had a base to start from. Our next podcast, and the first “real” one will be released really soon with interviews from Rachel Nichols, Erik Knudsen and Robert Knepper who were all kind enough to give us a moment of their time for our show.
We already have an interview for the following episode in the can and ready to go, but we’ll keep you guessing as to who that guest will be, but I will say that we are happy with that specific interview for many reasons that we’ll go into in that podcast.
For now, you can enjoy the soothing (or not) sound of my voice by heading over to iTunes and listening to The Vancity Filming Podcast.
