I was very disappointed by this. You barely rammed that book down our throat. I was expecting every bit of dialogue not about Auto Assembly to be advertising shamelessly.

I am listening to this...RIGHT NOW! I like that Dalek sounds like an actual dalek :)


...more thoughts will follow when my ears are full


MY EARS ARE FULL OF PODCAST. Enjoyed that, nice and breezy. Some good critique of the convention itself and (hooray!) not self-indulgent. Like the bouncy, squelchy sounding theme tune. What is that?

You need to do at least two before you can start being self indulgent with nonsensical to anyone who hasn't listened before injokes.

The vocal effect was deliberate, I thought we should **** off the audiophiles as quickly as possible.

EDIT: Though I'm glad it works, it was hard to be objective from my point of view because I knew all the stuff we cut out, I was especially worried about losing what made us going very hysterical towards the end in case it sounded as if we started having a breakdown for no reason.

Yeah, I enjoyed that. Very much. With podcasts it's not necessarily just about the content, but also how engaging it is, what the banter is like, how people bounce off each other.

Despite the sound issues, that was surprisingly smooth for a first attempt. Looking forward to hearing more!

Assumed that was just the Kiddy accent.

Thanks for the kind words, folks. Hound, Dalek and myself recorded a chat about MTMTE 44 this morning. It should be in a presentable form quite soon.

Amusingly when we talked I was the one saying nice things about James Raiz, but a side effect of the edit is that what was me just reminding Mr. Hound of the name of the artist we'd talked about a few minutes before is now basically me going "Bad Dark Cybertron artist? That's Jams Raiz that is".

You'll have to listen to find out!


I think I've got this clickbait thing down pat.


EDIT: I think by the time we started recording it worked out at just over an hour.

I have listened to find out!

Whoop. Another good round table, and I liked hearing Hound's lovely Canadian tones :) Nice balance in the discussion too, and some excellent trivia from Mr Terome about Trevor Hutchinson. Shame Dalek's voice is no longer like a dalek, but I did enjoy the silly way "Podcast Maximus!" was boomed out.

Good show, folks!

Sorry about that - it was difficult to get it so that it came up naturally. I was mainly trying to keep things on track about this issue rather than musing over Dark Cybertron from ages past.

Thanks!

It's true, just over an hour of recording. Then roughly half an hour off-mic. We had a big old chat!

I also see the podcast wound up exactly too long by the length of time it took me to tell the story of what was exactly too long to go in the first podcast that drove us to hysterics. I'm going to start telling that story in every one until it gets in! ;)

Hello friends! I have returned from rarely being sober enough to type to say: I listened to your podcast. It was nice. Well, I listened to episode 1 and will listen to 2 once I've read the appropriate Comicbook issue.

I'm a major, major podcast addict; I listen to them while I do chores and cook, at the gym, at work whenever I can escape customers... So a new one to listen to is very welcome. And it's not about games!

My feedback so far:
you had a nice conversational tone and a sense of humour which is key
You didn't feel over edited, which can be super annoying
The opening and closing bits sounded like Stu was phoning his computer from a 1988 car phone

Hoping this will run and run so I'll have some robo-chat in my rolling list of podcasts. Cheers guys!
I like bears.

Thanks you podcast whore you. The next one (without me on it! I hope they do the PODCAST MAXIMUS thing) talking about toys is currently being edited by Mr Clay.

Terome and I will probably be doing a Chaos Theory retro lookback when I return from hanging out with Sir Roger Moore towards the end of the week.

And we've got something very special lined up for early November.

Bonus points if the quote is from a Bond movie he wasn't in
