Drive to Dragon Con 2015, Brainstorming a Podcast

Here’s our improvised podcast while driving to DragonCon 2015!

The first question that raises it’s head is “What is the purpose of a podcast?”

In the past, we’ve done brainstorming, as well as just chatting about what’s going on with our lives. A behind-the-scenes tour, if you will – or a self-covering band!

So how do you create a podcast for a band that only meets once or twice a year? Do we just go for the general chatting about life and work, or do we go for something completely off-the-wall? We don’t have much time together, so outrageous skits and dashing fight scenes aren’t really options…

But these options of chatting about TV and our lives are all boring… a good setup is usually starting off with news, followed by an intro, and then the meat of the podcast. Informing, entertaining, evergreen. Crazy idea – we could do skits, but ask our audience to send in suggestions of what they’d like to see! Improv, parodies, rambling, actual dialogue, commentary – who knows!

Or we could just start classifying everything either Lilliputian or Brobdingnagian.

Basically, the moral of the story, this podcast is about us podcasting and the purpose of our podcasts.
