So, this week’s episode has been lost as well. That makes 2 weeks in a row where we haven’t been able to publish an episode, which is pretty shitty. Less shitty is the fact that we’ve figured out what’s been going on, which means it (hopefully) shouldn’t happen in the future.
It turns out that Audacity, which we all use for recording the podcast and I use for editing it once we’re done, had been corrupting my project files. Nobody else’s, just mine. Having tried updating Audacity and messing around with the project files generated by the new version, it looks like that should do the trick. It’s not for sure though, so I’m going to arrange an alternative recording/editing option, just in case it all falls down again.
Once again, we’re sorry we can’t bring you an episode this week, but we should be back for real this week.
Nobody really asked me these questions, but the answers will be helpful regardless.
Is the podcast in iTunes?
Not yet. The RSS feed has been created (about 2 hours prior to this) and it just needs to go through submission to iTunes. It’ll be soon.
What’s up with the audio quality?
We’re using a pretty tricky recording technique. Trying to record a 4-way conversation over the internet isn’t the easiest thing to get right. We’re each recording ourselves while we’re on a Google Hangout, then I edit the 4 individual audio files into 1 final audio file, which is the finished episode.
Also, considering we’re 2 episodes in, we haven’t made a call to go and buy high quality microphones just yet.
This website is pretty sparse, isn’t it?
My intention was to get the podcast out there, so we can start to (hopefully) build an audience. The website, like the podcast, will grow and improve over time.
