Lifted from the title page:
"Tonight, we're adding a little something different to the site, our very first Podcast. I thought long and hard about doing a Podcast for the site, and I figured the only way to really know if we should do one is to try one out.
Last Friday night a few of us got together and recorded at Joe's place. I'll be honest, we didn't have to much of a game plan, but the real goal was just to see if we were capable of carrying an entire Podcast. I thought things went better than expected, but I would like for all of you fine people to be the judges. Listen to the Shamoozal Podcast, and then tell us what you think at the Smorgas Board, or send us an e-mail."
If you haven't seen it yet, the front page has gotten a slight overhaul. I think the site has been begging for this type of communication for a while. I still might stick up a title theme here and there for special occasions, but for now I'm going to stick to that format.
Okay, so the Podcast. Steve (Sol) and I were talking about doing a podcast kind of in passing one day. Before we knew it, we figured we would take a stab at it. I asked Joe what he thought about it and he was all about it. For a little something different, I also decided to ask my brother Jim (sithlord) to join in, as he's always "colorful."
We've already listened to it (in the case of Joe and I, several times) and we already know where we can make improvements. However, we really do want an honest opinion from everyone who listens to it. If you didn't like it, be honest with us and let us know.
As I mentioned on the front page, I felt it went better than expected. Remember, none of us are broadcasters, so this podcast is more of a stepping stone. We wanted to get one under our belts belts before I decided to make it a permanent part of the site. As I said, we really want to know what you think, feelings won't be hurt!
Regardless, I'd like to thank Joe for all his help as he really did a lot of work on this. And I want to thank Steve, Jim, and Frank for the work they did on the podcast as well.
Get ready for a completely nerded out experience, and hopefully you'll have a few laughs along the way. Hope you enjoy.
