So, I've been thinking about this for the last few weeks. I know some of you are going to groan and say, but Aeryx you big dummy, your last attempt at the podcast wasn't that great and was only great because of the other people, Aloli chief among them, and I would say yes, you are correct.
I do think we learned a lot of positive things from the podcast though. I think overall it was a success and we had a lot of great episodes. Also still not opposed to Aloli continuing to do her Midnight Press if she ever gets time and still wants to.
My new idea is not really a podcast, its going to be more of a Show. I've went ahead and made a Twitch account separate from my own main one, which we would be using for said show.
It would be a live stream, however, I also can use the Ankyrean Archives Youtube account I made for the podcast(mostly for the gmail at the time), and use it as a real Archives like in the name, and upload the recordings of the live streams on said Youtube account for people to catch later. Also know how and can if its desired rip the audio out of the recording and still make a podcast feed.
What would this be called, and what would it be about, you ask?
I would be using a name that some other people shot down when we were trying to figure out what to call the podcast, because I like it. The Weekly Milestone.
I've already spent time making the scenes and layouts in OBS for this. I've done the best I can with what art/technical skills I have, and I think it looks alright. One thing I'd be wanting to do as we go along, for anyone who is interested or has the copies, is to put up previous or future Artisanal Contributions up as a slideshow for the Starting Soon or BRB scenes, and so forth.
I'm completely willing and ready to be on webcam for this, that's part of the fun. Any guests or people who want to come on can too as well, or they can choose not to. I've already got it setup to have a spectralizer graph for someone's voice if they just want to do voice with me on the show.
The show will have certain set segments, and then of course it will just have times where we talk about whatever we want to talk about. I'd also like to do credit giveaways either just for people sticking it out until the end of the show, or as we go along, we could do some Aetolia trivia. I can even make it different prizes, perhaps you'd like gold equivalent, etc.
Any donations would be split in half for buying upgrades for the show(better camera, better mic, etc) and also for the credit giveaways, with the initial giveaways being funded by myself until either I can fund it with donations or the Pools decide to help us out with it.
I'd really like this to be about fun every week, while having some sort of consistent thing to look forward to as well. A lot of my immediate contacts/friends from Aetolia are obviously from my tether, so I would really need Shadow to help me out here again. I don't want this to be a show just about Spirit or whatever.
I would also be streaming my Mudlet client during the show as the background, in case we want to show anything inparticular we're talking about in the game, and so forth. Would take the necessary precautions of having tells off, all channels off, etc etc. I think it could be a good teaching tool though.
Anyways, if anyone has any ideas, please post them in the thread. If anyone thinks this should be a Monthly Milestone, post it(I have had this thought too). I just think it'd be way easier on Twitch to make my own content and fun if things are slow in Aetolia than in just a voice podcast format. Chat interaction is super important.
As I wrote in the other OOC thread, I will be moving back home across country, driving by myself this time(and the first time), starting June 30th, so I will be a bit tired after that to do the first show on July 3rd/4th, so that's probably a no go. More likely to be able to do the first one the following week.
That's all, I guess. Maybe noone has any interest in this, maybe they have more interest than the podcast had, I dunno. Lets see what happens!
