I want to start one as soon as I get my portable Harddrive.. now I've never done one before but I think it'd be a fun thing to do... and given all the awesome people I met I want to invite them to help or star in the show as well :D Right now I just have a basic Idea of doing a podcast about the happenings on Obsidian and maybe a few other random things in the pen and paper world.. News and such.. interview moderators or Campaign leaders.. And I should be getting a Harddrive this coming month.. depending on whether or not my brother sticks to his promise..

    That's awesome, I've never actually seen a podcast, as there have never been any that I've been interested in/knew about before they happened.

    Gotta come up with a little structure though, otherwise everyone talks over each other, especially if there are a lot of people like there might be with an open podcast.

    Structure would be good, we could always prerecord it as well that way it doesn't happen

    I'm thinking though that one person will host and the others come in when they need to..

    that sounds good, and yeah, pre-recorded is the way to go, we probably need to be able to censor it... :P

    Umami, if you make it informative and inviting, it can be a big boon for Obsidian Portal. If I were you, before you get too far into the development stage, I would send a private message to Micah, Ryan, and/or Dan. Let them know what you would like to do, and see if they have any ideas, requests, or requirements. As Obsidian Portal is kind of Micah's baby, using his site as a venue for a podcast (pies or no pies) kind of means getting his blessing, or at the very least, his consent.

    I will help in whatever capacity I am capable of.

    Sounds intriguing, I'm interested. But I gotta second what Duskreign said: make sure that all of the right people are on board.

    Cheers,

    Definitely, if it's just a gaming podcast, we can do whatever we want, but if we're looking at an Obsidian Portal podcast, we'll have to get the overlord's blessing. Dusk and Sheesh are right, it COULD be a pretty cool thing for OP, but it's their name :).

    Get your proposal/idea together and ask. It would be awesome. Also, why can't you guys be active during normal hours :(

    Curse my having kids and a nighttime sleep cycle.

    When I said that it was bravado. I actually feel quite old and beat sometimes. Especially when I get 3 16 hour days in a row at work.

    Speaking of did anyone see the video Obsidian Portal shared on Facebook this morning? Completely hilarious.

    Also, why aren't more of us friends on FB?

    I'll have to do that.. but I have no idea who they are.. at the very least it could be a gaming podcast..

    It's cool that so many people like the idea though so hopefully they would as well...

    And I do have a kid, she's three.. o.O I just never get enough sleep... lol

    Also the people who are most definately interested in helping out, make yourself known because a proposal won't be impressive if Garaan and I are the only people listed.. or if you just have suggestions in general..

    Jim, look me up and friend me! [email protected]

    And you can throw my name on that list Umami, but unfortunately seeing Duskreign on a list makes people want to burn the list.

    Gaaran, thanks for bringing this to our attention. We're talking it over in our secret bunker.

    This Facebook thing is a treacherous beast... one whose habit I have yet to kick, unfortunately.

    ...It's not a secret bunker if you talk about it! Shhhhh...

    We'd be happy to sponsor a podcast, with name, exposure, and hosting. The main thing we (Dan, Ryan, and I) want to avoid is spreading ourselves too thin. So, all we can give is our blessing and some money to pay for hosting costs. A simple blog/podcast hosting account shouldn't be more than $10/mo, and we'd be happy to cover that. But, what we can't offer is tech support or content. We've got our hands pretty full as is, so you'd be on your own in that department.

    As to the rest, I recommend starting small and growing from there. Imagine how hard it is to get a gaming group together for a weekly game. That's about how hard it is to get a podcast crew together, as well. The smaller the crew, the easier it is to schedule a time.

    Meh, I'll shut up, as I'm out of my core area here. I don't know how to run a podcast.

    Send me a (short!) proposal with the people involved (and contact info), an overall plan (how often, show format, etc), and what you need. I'll look it over and we'll figure out how to proceed. Emphasis on short! No need for a complicated plan up front. We'll figure it out as we go.

    Now back to Dragon Age! I'm catching up on PC games I've missed over the past few years while OP has eaten all my spare time.
