So last year a couple of cool duders and I made a Giant Bomb GOTY Community Podcast. I loved it and wished to do more with the same team. Unfortunately we never really agreed on doing another one. I've been waiting to do something like this for a long time now and I've finally decided to pull the trigger. I'd like to do a podcast that discusses video games and other things. Those other things could be Giant Bomb community related(like interviewing more well-known duders on the site or talking about Giant Bomb in general). The podcast would mostly be a couple of people just talking about games. This podcast doesn't have to be weekly as I understand that many of you are busy living your lives. I don't want to create a podcast that has to be a commitment. However, I'd like for the podcast to at least be done monthly. Games are a big enough subject to tackle so I'd like it to be focused on our play time with them and generally discussing the news around them. If you'd like to be a part of this then let me know in the comments below. Before doing that here's a handy list of things that you should have in order for me to consider you.
What you should have/know before being a part of this podcast
In order to make things easy for scheduling it'd be ideal for you to live in the United States. It'd be perfect if you lived in the east coast.
- You should have a decent mic. Nothing fancy, but I won't be accepting laptop mics.
- Must have a wide range of gaming knowledge(basically know what you're talking about when discussing games).
- If you're good at recording audio through skype than that'd be great
- Must play some games that have come out this year or at least play games. If you hate games then you probably don't want to be a part of this.
- Please be active on the site and pay attention to your PM's. Don't leave us hanging when we have to record. If you want to be a part of this then try to make it for every recording.
- We'll be using skype for the podcast so have an account for it.
- Be sure that you have enough time to do this
- Have fun, duder.
- The maximum limit of people that I'd like to be on the podcast is 5.
If you're interested be sure to say why you'd like to be a part of this in detail(just saying yes won't cut it). We'll need someone that is great at recording audio over skype and making that into a podcast. Anyone that can do that should let me know. Please don't be a dick about this and try to post about things that don't relate to the main topic. I'd like to make this be as easy as possible. Hopefully I'll round up a couple of duders and post a podcast. :)
EDIT: This podcast will not be a GOTY. It'll be an hour gaming podcast based on our playtime plus gaming news.
