Just scouting out for local people who may be interested in a sort of bite sized podcast project I'm looking into starting up. I've started this little page/account that will essentially be a recording amongst a few friends at a time whereby we just talk about games, music, film, comics, board games, or anything pop culture related. I would like this to be a very unscripted/loosely formatted affair that focuses on just general chit chat and bullshitting with one another about anything entertainment related. It'd not be a massive commitment, just a form of expression to get your opinions out there to the world! I call this a 'bite sized podcast' due to the fact I intend on the content being audio/videos covering just one subject at a time. This not only makes things easier to manage, but it also means if you happen to have, say, 25-30 minutes to spare and want to talk about something, you can just jump in, record your session and get back to whatever you wanted to do. I'm not trying to think too big or anything at this point - it's just an idea. Micro podcasts for those who don't wish to listen to 1hr+ audio recording to hear about 20 minutes of discussion about something they're interested in. On top of that, I've listened to many a podcast where one or two participants would have absolutely no idea or experience with whatever product the others are talking about. I think that's good, to an extent, as it offers an outsider perspective - but for example, I have no real interest in comics or board games. Rather than omit them from the show, how about we just get people who ARE interested and can offer a good discussion? This would be quick to edit and manage, in, out, boom, done.

To keep things interesting, I'm looking for a wide variety of personalities. Local would just make things easier of course. Before any recording would be done, it'd be good to get to know some of you guys to build a little chemistry and see where things go. People who are comfortable just talking to others and own a good microphone are obviously a plus.

It's still up in the air, and things may change (I'm very open to suggestions and ideas!) but I'm just looking to see if anyone out there would be interested. We gots logos and everything! :)

P.M me or leave a message if interested.

I've always wanted to create/participate in such a podcast, due to my love of PlayerOne, CheapAssGamer and the old 1up shows.

I'd recommend a meetup for you though, because of how important chemistry is in these things.

I'd love to participate, but I'd need to get a mic. Generally I'm free in the evenings, but work has been keeping me later and later. I'll keep you posted though.

So I don't know if anyone has ever been to Chupacabra off 6th downtown. They used to be a so-so Mexican restaurant that competed with the Iron Cactus (which is right across the street).

Anyway, they've completely revamped their menu lately and I went after a request from my wife and I must say...

It's really quite good now! They're simply tacos and enchiladas now, kind of went for the Torchy's style of weird and wild tacos and the two I had were really quite good. I might even say better than Torchy's, and about $4 a pop. They've also got a really good beer list (which they had before, but the food was meh).

Anyway, if you're downtown and feel like tacos and a beer, I'd recommend them.

Good luck organizing us fewer than a week in advance, haha. Austin-GAF is bar-none the laziest lot in the community.

FYI I work at 4am, so going out is basically never an option for me except the day before my day off. I'll try to make a social session though, considering you really want to do the podcast.

Alright who's down for drinks next week? I'm thinking Wednesday or Thursday at Sherlock's, but I'm open to suggestions. Or the weekend, if that works better for people.

What say y'all? Would be super causal.

As for what we could do. We got Pinballz as the old standby. Someone recommended Emerald Tavern which is beer and boardgames. Or we could all just go out for a drink. Or recommend something.

You may have just volunteered yourself as a fall-back plan. :P

Probably late afternoon/early evening. I know people have errands and shit they have to run during the weekends (I do, too). So probably after 4 or 5. At least, that's my opinion, anyway.
