Fullcast Podcast Episode 6

In the second half of an interview with Rish Outfield and Big Anklevich of The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine, we discuss getting involved in the podcasting community.  Some show notes:

We’ve been recording with the MP3 Skype Recorder since Episode 4.

Go to Audio Drama Talk to find a variety of audio drama podcasts.

Consider the Podiobooks Community when looking for eager voices.

For those new to The Dunesteef, a good starting point would be their reading of A Place So Foreign by Cory Doctorow.

Finally, Bryan spoke at length about the “wall of sound”.  He was talking primarily about the use of separate frequency ranges for overlapping sounds in order to avoid having them mask eachother, allowing them to both be loud and concurrently audible.  Historically, the “wall of sound” involves simultaneous playing of the same sounds on multiple instruments, which is sort of the opposite.  We’ll just have to have Dan on again sometime to clarify its use in audio fiction.
