As you guys should by now, one of my passions is anything space related & one of the things to help establish that passion over the last few years is Spacevidcast.com.
There are a lot of people that find the coverage of space related issues, stuffy & boring, well Spacevidcast blows that notion out of the water.
About four years ago, I discovered Spacevidcast purely by accident, when I was trying to find decent quality videos of shuttle launches. This led me to Spacevidcast's YouTube channel, where I found all kinds of interesting stuff.
OK, so you are still unsure about what Spacevidcast is? Let me tell you a bit more about it.
Husband & wife team, Benjamin & Cariann Higginbotham, have been hosting the Weekly LIVE show for the last Six years. Their motto is "Making Space Commonplace" & bring you a non biased look at what is happening in space exploration, not just NASA but all the space agencies & independent commercial ventures.
The latest Season (Season 6) has recently started & with a revamped studio & branding, & new for 2013, Spacevidcast's shows will be broadcast LIVE on YouTube.
You can catch the Weekly LIVE show on Saturday nights at 21:00 UTC (that's GMT for non space peeps) on their YouTube channel or if you want to contribute to the show, at Spacevidcast.com, where you can join the live chatroom.
As I write this blog entry, I am sitting around waiting for a plumber to come & rectify some problems we have in the bathroom. Once again, we have been given a window of anytime between 12pm - 4pm. I have jobs I need to do but I can't in case they show up.
My new Zoom H2N recorder & Shock Mount / Pop Filter for the Studio microphone have arrived over the last couple of days.
All I'm waiting for now is the Soundlab Desk Microphone Stand, which is odd because the Shock mount arrived before & was sent from overseas?
Hopefully now I have the new recorder, I can make better recordings whilst out & about. The Sony that I have is OK for plugging into the mixer & recording the show on, but I'm not 100% happy with it for field recording.
The Sony has served The Garbage POD well over the last year, considering it was bought as a cheap replacement for the Tascam DR-07, after I dropped it.
The Garbage POD is now on YouTube!
One of our listeners pointed out to us, that many podcasts are now appearing on YouTube. After looking into this, I have started to transfer the shows into a video format for the YouTube generation, hopefully, that will introduce The Garbage POD to a new audience.
To take a look at our YouTube Channel by clicking on the highlighted text or by clicking on the YouTube social media button, on the top right corner of the website (next to where it says "Your Input Is Our Output")
Also, I have replaced the audio player on the last 4 Garbage POD episodes with a YouTube Player for a trial period, get in touch & let us know what you think?
