Just wanted to open up the floor for suggestions about how I can make the podcast fresh or improve it in some way.
So far suggestions have included:
-Changing to a live format and having a live chat room during the podcast.
-Adding a Co-host.
-Highlighting a thread on the forums each week.
Until Spirit Blade Productions enables me to quit working any side gigs, a live format and regular co-host are unfortunately off the table, since I can't record the podcast at the same time every week due to other responsibilities. (Subbing, watching the kids while my wife works, etc.)
However, I've gotten a number of positive remarks from listeners who enjoyed the community submitted content recently. So I'd like to affirm again my interest in getting recorded or "phoned in" reviews or geek related commentary for the show! I LOVE having you guys involved that way! And I'll also look for opportunities now and then to bring someone else into the room to converse with me on a topic.
I really like the idea of highlighting a forum thread. I've decided to make that my default on the weeks where I don't get any other kinds of messages from the listening community. (But don't let that stop you from sending an e-mail for phone message! I LOVE getting those!)
Any other thoughts? Segments I've used before you'd like to have more of? An idea for a new segment? A change in the music and transitions? More topic-based "In Search Of Truth" segments? Whatever's on your mind, I'd like to hear it!
