First, I want to apologize for the lack of podcast episode updates. During the time the website has been down, I’ve gone through two Blue Yeti mics that have made for some poor quality recordings. I’ve been pretty unhappy with how they’ve turned out, and that’s just sucked the enthusiasm I had for producing new content. Just relistening to them for editing makes me sad. And for further injury, the podcast has been delisted from the iTunes store since the RSS feed was dead while our hosting was down.
But all it not lost. While the Yeti microphone is out, I’ve decided to pursue a better podcasting set up that is more ideal for our group recordings, both in person and over Skype. Due to life problems, funding is a little bit lower than I’d like at the moment, but I will get our new podcasting gear in the near future. It’ll just happen slowly. No, I’m not planning to do a Kickstarter for this (which is the popular thing to do these days), especially since I have nothing to offer in terms of backer rewards. What I mean by slow is, well, it’ll be a gradual acquiring of all the pieces, and luckily there’s an upcoming Black Friday sale for some of the more major parts. And if you subscribed to the podcast in the past on iTunes, you can still get the episodes updated to your iTunes (at least, I did), or you can listen to them on our website. We’re still trying to get our podcast relisted on the iTunes store.
We’re still recording, although not as timely as I’d like. We have four in the can that need editing, and I am definitely planning to have all of those out before my next convention: New York Comic Con. Yes, I will be attending solo and joining the One Piece Podcast in covering and enjoying this con. Viz is also planning some Ranma 1/2 events, and you know that Shonen Jump has some sort of fan meet up planned as well. So if you’re out in the East Coast for that convention, I hope to see you there!
