Good actual evening!
Back in the old days of 2010, I had decided to create a video game podcast focusing on reviewing and news. At this point in time, I really don’t remember what it was called, but I did a lot of research on creating it, how to edit audio correctly, where to put the episode up so people could find it, etc. I even found a like-minded soul on a forum to co-host with me, things were looking up, I was finally going to create something where people could hear my voice and listen to what I had to say.
Flash forward to the release of the first episode, I get an email from someone who wants to join podcasts. See at the time people were only really recording and uploading them, but this guy, let’s call him Josh, was streaming the recording out to a website (not Twitch). Now, this was a good few years before streaming IRL (In Real Life) was a thing.
I was blown away with the idea, plus of course, having more co-hosts to talk to was a huge bonus to me. And so a new podcast was formed. I was finally able to say what I wanted to and laugh with people who had similar thoughts and ideas. It was fun!
Unfortunately life catches up to us all and in this case, it caught up incredibly fast. We only ended up airing about 4 episodes suddenly everyone was kind of hit with a whirlwind of problems. Hey, it happens and I enjoyed my time on the show and made some friends that I followed throughout the years.
Anyway, yesterday I get a message from Josh (Who I haven’t talked to since 2010) asking me if I was still interested in creating a podcast. Now, I don’t know if anyone reading this has gone back and read any of my posts but, hell yes, please, I want to make a podcast. I knew I was going to accept even if it was just as an audio editor or something, I wanted to be involved. An hour-long phone call later and I was convinced that this is something worth putting my time into.
See back in 2010, Josh put a lot of effort into the show but now… Well, now it has become a passion and a job for him. I believe Kevin Smith (The director & Podcaster) once said “Surround yourself with people that have the same push and drive for creating as you”, well it was something along those lines anyway.
So here I am, nervous but excited that I get to work with someone as talented as him and I get to fill in that desire to create and be heard.
