it's been a bit of a crazy day here, midweek, we had to get this recorded to keep on track with our schedule for this week -- this day has been a bit of a car crash in some ways, so man threads I feel like a cpu running at 90% encoding a video! in this podcast me and @dayleeo got into our old jobs, what we did, what frustrated us and what we learned from them never to be repeated again! :)
it's been a crazy last few weeks, lots of things going on around here recently, lots of changes, updates, energy shifting between creative work, infrastructure building and brand new client relationships. it's been a difficult week to balance but here we are! :)
Dayle picked an awesome topic this week and in usual fashion we went off about it for nearly an hour, take it as you will, it's been a hectic time over the last week, but while we are 3000 miles apart that's just the way it is -- but change is coming! :)
TOPIC: Podcasts We Listen To & Why
Why do you think Podcasts took so long? // What do you look for in a podcast? // what are the benefits of just having a voice to listen to while solo- digital working? // difference between creating and consuming // any favorite podcasts to shout out? -- so yeah, we kinda went deep on all things aural today.
we actually did a lot of stuff behind the scenes this week, we hooked up some new intros and outros, set up a new podcast for our blockchain modding duties we do every day on the steemhunt.com website, we discuss hiring a remote worker, side projects, quick piece about screenflow 8 and slides4 launching and we even setup a discord channel you can come and tell us that you listen and follow us! -- don't forget to support the show with the lovely new financial feature, we just want to see it show us 99 cents in our wallet, love ya! :)
we both actually had a lot of other things to talk about today but sustainability and heatwaves and storytelling and a whole sh*t ton of other stuff got in their as well about behaviour, consumption and opportunity -- welcome to word bingo!
dayle decided on the topic of timezones today and we ended up talking for an hour about some of our experiences in each others countries while we were there, it's funny how memories are activated when you start talking about time -- while i'm often very grounded and dayle is sky and space we somehow manage to meet in the clouds (digitally of course!)
in today's nearly hour-long episode we talk about dayle's food transition since she's been back home and some of the food startups she's been using to get hold of supplies and to carve out more time now she's had her blood work done.
3000 + miles away from each other, connected via VOIP we managed to make this work, i think this is gonna work out fine, hat tip to 'Couples Therapy' for helping with momentum motivation. ... it certainly does not feel like 90 days apart! :)
it's been six months since @dayleeo was here in the uk. we decided to get one last podcast (this side of the pond) together before she headed out, she's arrived now safe and sound. it was good to get this done, even thou we were sad.
This was recorded in bed using the laptop, we will be taking the laptop and audio podcasting setup with us to @steemcampuk in the hope of having a few chats with steemians at the event or when we are discussing or round tabling of ideas (that’s the hope anyway)
Sometimes you just have to go head down and get stuff done, we both had a solid day, I think @dayleeo managed to shoehorn a bunch more stuff in than I did but overall I productive day, the right momentum at least, something that can be hard to find on a monday — felt that sunday build up helped.
Another just chat and get used to the audio equipment kinda podcast, I’ve been dabbling with OBS and recorded a ten solid live streamer tips today for @dlive and that’s uploaded, props to the guys over there for voting for stuff up — https://dlive.io/video/teamhumble/ba921780-3119-11e8-8c78-95b7c3b77998 if you want to check it out.
Also messed around with new intro graphics to start live streams which I want to improve with some hardcore python scripts at some point but I’m not sure if the Mac version supports them yet.
We went all over the MAP again today in this podcast! :)
Let us know if you are out there and listening! :)
trying to keep up the momentum of the recording daily situation.
we recorded for up to forty-five minutes today and just shot the sh_t.
had a bit of a fail on the soundboard recording and it was actually low so we need to work out why the system sound was quiet and not captured but we will have that working for next time.
@dayleeo had a super focused day and i was a little bit cloudy but still got some stuff done in the end, time to focus up and get through another month, another ten day and boom we are in april, these months are flying by, think i need to take more time out and do some exercise instead of suffering from exhaustion or something! :)
we hope you will come and check us out on steem! :) - find us at http://steemit.com/@teamaudio
it would have been episode five but yesterday I was just so vacant that I could not my brain in gear in work let alone talk for a while on a podcast so left it until today, it’s pretty hard to record a podcast, audio, rants everyday anyway until @dayleeo heads back we are gonna try.
The notion is that if we do it everyday I’m guessing is that we are accountable for it and that it becomes a routine (you know like 30 day challenges) to aim at maintaining it, after all we got the hardware now it seems stupid not to use it.
forgot to mention that we tried playing it back in pocket casts and it works fantastically well, sounds great too, if you can think of anything to improve it let us know, I realise we need like an intro sting and such like but we are working on things bit by bit — I’ve already made graphics (bottom of the post) for where you can find us and subscribe if you so wish — hope you do!
once again, corralled into the mix, dayle got us all locked down to a time and right now she's making fire behind me in the kitchen with some popping herbs in tonights india curry and it's gonna be fire (can't wait)
we are going to attempt to at least do these daily until @dayleeo has to head back to her homelands -- we kinda need to do it, we have a lot to get out between now and then as we go through the mysteries of the visa system and just generally communicating from different sides of the globe that we call planet earth.
today we just go all over the shop, i can't even tell you where we start and where we end -- we went in, beers on a monday (on a school night as we used to say) shooting the shiz about everything. if you listen to the end i thank you for your time and determination, wherever you are in the world. thank you.
we hope you tune in tomorrow. are you out there?
really did not want to record an episode today, i was feeling quite apathetic which brought up an interesting conversation and probable self-reflection about effort, focus and pride, eventually -- the biggest take away however was how upbeat i felt during the audio - aiming for daily!
we just upgraded all the things, our first new podcast together using a great audio interface and some broadcast XLR mics, it's super nice -- we posted this to our main decentralized account (http://steemit.com/@teamaudio) on steemit.com -- pumped to see it going out on multiple locations as well, i hope you will subscribe, looking to do these at very least once a week!
It’s been one year since we were both on the steemit platform. It seems to feel so much more after coming back from steemfest 2 — even thou we are both minnows i really feel this is a community I can bond with!
