Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

verityextrapodcastingIt’s a “very special episode” of Verity! Join Deb, Katrina, and Liz as they talk about why they do what they do, how podcasting has changed for them, and what it’s meant to them. Deb calls this one a biscuit episode, and Liz reveals that one of us is really a talking flamingo. It’s a great mix of personal seriousness and silly fun!

  1. Erika:

    Download link connects to last week’s show. Almost got spoiled for “Class” by accident.

    Direct play button is fine.

    This was great fun to listen to. I always like to hear the ‘inside baseball’ of other podcasters, especially the ones that inspired me to start my podcast in the first place. 🙂

    I did SO MUCH research before starting mine and overall I’ve really loved the journey so far. But I do wish I would have known going in how much work it could/would be though — at least for someone who does everything on their own (and, to be fair, someone who probably over-edits things a bit).

    Like the episode I just finished took me a few days to make notes for and then a few days to edit. It was longer than usual — almost 3 hours of raw footage cut down to 1:45ish, mostly just minimizing pauses and taking out throat-clearing or whatever — but it was still quite a bit of work. Not complaining, but just saying that yeah, it can be easy to say ‘Hey, I can do that!’ and quickly realize you’ve taken on something bigger than you imagined! 😉

    Love your podcast! It is really something!

  4. Verities-

    The glimpse behind the curtain this week was very fun to listen to. I especially appreciated your vulnerability.

    BTW-I listen to you every week, whether I comment or not. The reasons you gave for continuing to create the podcast are the same reasons I listen every week. I think I get the better end of the deal, though. Anyway, your time and efforts are greatly appreciated-thank you!

  5. This was fascinating, both technically and for what Kat and Liz had to say about their experience.

    If there is a follow up with Erika on board it would be great to hear about the software, recording and uploading each speaker etc.

  6. To anyone who’s thinking of getting started in podcasting: the first two years of Improvised Radio Theatre with Dice (a role-playing podcast I co-host) were recorded with cheap basic boundary mics from the spares bin, a custom adaptor soldered by a friend to get spatial stereo input, a USB sound pod (£10 or so), and a laptop. We now use a Tascam portable recorder, but that’s basically the only significant equipment expense we’ve ever had. All editing is done in audacity, which has great built-in noise reduction.

    Also to anyone who’s thinking of getting started in podcasting: as the Verities pretty much all said, but especially Liz, if you have something you really want to talk about: do it! It’s fun! It will hardly take over your life at all!

  7. This is such a cool concept. Also, I didn’t know Liz had such a hard time with the podcasting equivalent of “stage fright”… Liz, you are awesome. Don’t let anyone else (even your own anxiety, perish the thought) tell you otherwise. (Especially hearing you say the words “dodgy healers”, LOL.)

    Also, great show, I love listening to it. Hopefully we’ll see more of these in the future.
