You my remember the audioblog I made in June of last year. I can’t even remember what I said, and I really don’t want to listen to it again. When I came up with the idea I thought it was so great, but I didn’t feel to good when I actually recorded myself. But it appears now I have come full circle.
I got into podcasting recently when I purchased the iPod nano. Come to think of it, I should probably keep an OPML online of all the podcasts I listen to. I’ll do that sometime this week. Anyway, this sudden realization that podcasts are actually awesome and people listen got me to rethink about my audioblog idea. Before you knew it, my roommate and I had started a podcast.
You see, when I get home from work, we talk about all kinds of things. And our friends often remark about how entertaining our conversations are. I don’t understand what they’re talking about, but apparently standard conversational fare for us has been called “pure sex” by others. Who are we to deny the world its need for pure sex?
The problem we had with the podcast was coming up with a name. We came up with some good names like “renaissance geeks” and such, but that didn’t pan out. Rym thought “teh show” was a good name, but I felt it implied some sort of connection to l33t kiddies. But then, I rememberd a previous Idea of mine. You know those late night TV shows hosted by guys who have last names beginning with the letter “L”? I always felt there should be a show like that just for geeks. So we settled on “GeekNights with Rym + Scott”.
The website for the podcast is www.frontrowcrew.com. In college our group of friends was known as the front row crew because we sat in the front row of anime club ever week. That site is shaping up to be sort of a community blog that ties us all together on the Internet. The podcast is just the first, and primary, thing that will be hosted there. However, because of iTunes and such, we had to seperate and reformat our podcast feed using feedburner. So the GeekNights podcast feed is at a different URL.
I hope you enjoy the podcast, but if you don’t I wont force you to listen to it. And I doubt that the podcast will diminish the content posted to this blog. If anything it will be quite the opposite.
