I just discovered that podcasts are actually quite entertaining, and I wondered if it wouldn't be nice if we brought out a Spiderweb podcast every month, in which we summarize what happened over the last month with Spiderweb, it's games, the forums etc.

What do you guys think?

Who would narrate it?

I do enjoy podcasts, and this could be interesting. Maybe have a different host each month?

There's not enough activity on the BoA and OBoE front to warrant a podcast. It'd be kinda interesting if there was a short podcast showcasing the artistic talents of members, but I can only think of several members where a podcast would be an appropriate medium. It's a neat idea, but I don't think the community is nearly big enough.

The narrator point is probably the biggest problem of all. For as far as I have seen a lot of people are either busy or too weird to be trusted. What we can discuss, though, isn't that big a problem. At least, for the first few episodes, after that it may indeed get a bit more problematic...

I'd download it...

Just do it and post a link on the boards...we'll see how it works out.

Thuryl is the obvious choice for narrator. I mean hell, we could make a whole episode of him just saying "Bonus Army."

We could have mutliple narrators. I mean, listening to just one person all the time and his opinions seems a bit boring to me. Maybe we should have it like IMG's podcast, and have two or three people talking to each other, who exchange opinions, take turns in telling the news, etc. That'd maybe work out best.

Possible subject could be the following:
- General news from SW
- New stuff that came out in the last month (scenarios, walkthroughs, whatever)
- BoA/BoE scenario reviews reviewed (maybe even let the scenario designer tell what he thinks of the reviews?)

I actually do think this could be something, but we should only bring out a podcast when circumstances warrant it, and not just do one because we have to every month.

It is far easier to do it yourself, and then announce it, than it would be to recruit consensus.

I don't know much about podcasts, but I can only see this working if long distance collaboration was possible. Kel, Salmon, and Aran debating some obtuse spiderweb topic verbally might be interesting, but someone ranting on their own probably wouldn't be.

Except that for the next two weeks, my day will be composed of 10 hours studying statistics, 3 hours travel, 2 hours eating, 8 hours sleeping and at least 2 hours working on stats exercises. Add it up, subtract it from 24, divide it by 3 (Polaris and xkcd) and you get the amount of time I could dedicate to Spiderweb if I distributed it fairly.

No, this is not a calculation error. It comes to negative 20 minutes. I grossly blew my budget on making this post. Buh-bye.

Does that mean that we owe you time? ;)

Sadly, it just means that Aran will waste the entire period of time designing another bot to do his posting and mod work on this forum.

I'll bet Aran's already cutting some time from sleeping. Damn net-addicts.

It actually sounds like it could be a lot of fun. I like the idea of having a different person doing them, but I don't really see it working. Most of us either are too busy, don't own a microphone, or just don't feel like doing it. Thus, the options will be limited. I don't know, I think Thad should be the person to do it. Or at least to start it, and if you feel like being next you could record it and talk to him about it.

I don't know if this would be any help, but I have a Ventrilo server, if this would help with the multiple people angle.

Right... I'm still not convinced about all of this. But then again, why not. If there's some sort of call for it, then it can't hurt.
