realization: while i really dislike podcasts that try to sound TOO much like terrestrial radio with lots of planned bits and songs, etc, i find that i even MORE dislike podcasts with bad sound or badly produced audio. it's not THAT hard to get a couple of decent headsets and eq' the end results to come up with an acceptable audio end product. examples of good sound production? check out whole wheat radio or pull with both hands.... just because it's freeform and shit doesn't mean the sound quality is unimportant. if anything, the freeform format should demand a higher audio standard by its very nature. it's something you want to show off to the rest of the world or at the least, use to demonstrate your expertise in something... be it talking sports, talking movies or just talking... because that's why most people do podcasts when you get right down to it... because they think they can be better djs/talk hosts than the people who really do it on the radio. and the funny part is, on the whole, they're right. i'll take an episode of dawn & drew or a whole wheat radio rant anyday over the howard stern show or bob & tom. i'd love to see jim and esther do a 6 hour shift on a real terrestrial radio station while playing the music THEY want to play... but i'm rambling again. just needed to get that off my chest.
