New podcast devoted to Trek lit
 
Hi all,

I am very excited to announce a new podcast devoted to the world of Trek lit (and more) starting Sunday, June 19, 9 am EST. We already have some interviews scheduled with some about a half dozen very prominent Trek authors, and I sincerely hope to line up more in the future. If you get the chance, please tune in! I think you'll enjoy!

Me too. Can you say anything about which authors you have lined up?

Re: New podcast devoted to Trek lit
 
So far we have David Mack, Dayton Ward, Kevin Dilmore, and Marco Palmieri lined up to discuss the Vanguard series, David Mack will talk in a seperate interview about Destiny and post-Destiny Trek lit, we have Keith R.A. DeCandido lined up and more on the way.

I am really hoping we can do a live feed from the Las Vegas convention. :drool:

Sounds interesting. I'll have to check it out.

BTW, why does he call himself Gettysburg7? I'm a bit of a Civil War buff, so I'm curious.

Valin,

I call myself that because in addition to being a Trek fan, I am also a Soldier, and my unit is stationed in Gettysburg, Pa., and as the senior NCO in my unit my callsign on the radio is Gettysburg7. :)

Since you are a bit of a USCW buff, my job is of historian, so you can imagine my being based in Gettysburg....

So, I've listened to the first episode of the podcast. Some thoughts:

  • after the technical difficulties were dealt with and whenever you stayed on topic the show was pretty good
  • you probably shouldn't acknowledge every person coming into the instance where your STO characters are, as it disrupts the flow of the show, especially for those who don't play STO, and I had the feeling that you were forgetting what you were talking about before those "interruptions".
  • don't know if it was just me, but the audio and video were lagging pretty badly most of the time
  • had a chance to plug Unreality SF, which was a plus ;)

How do I get this podcast to listen to?

I've been to the site
http://www.livestream.com/cerberusfilms
hours after the podcast was broadcasted and I can watch 2 videos made of the start of the podcast (first 20 minutes). But it definitely seems like the podcast continued on after that point.
How do I get to listen to more?
Do I need to sign up as a member and be logged in?
Is it only available at time of broadcast and not after?

Just a few questions for someone new to podcasts.

Re: New podcast devoted to Trek lit
 
I listened to the live broadcast, so no idea what's up with the recording.

But the show was about 3 1/2 hours long , so it definitely continued after the 20 minutes that are available at the moment. No idea why the rest isn't on the site. :confused:

ETA: I made Nick M aware of the missing parts on Twitter.

^The rest of the show is up now.

Defcon,

Thank you for the feedback, and in our after show discussion we discussed our commenting on people entering the room. I know for me that was just the excitment of seeing people from the west coast actually got up at 6 am their time to listen to us. :) A very valid point though.

I think the lag may have been a livestream issue, I was listening to another show later and there was the same issue.

I went and bought a new headset yesterday, so hopefully my sound will be a lot clearer.

I am glad you enjoye, and we will get better as any show does (well, you hope the show does!). Already plotting next Sunday, and some good things in store.

I would like to thanks those that listened, and Teri said to also send her appreciation. We may get a little sidetracked (the discussion about Sisko was not Trek lit, but I think it was a good debate about our viewpoints on that subject) but we really love Trek books and hope that came through.

Thanks again everyone!

I understand that. I was just talking from an outsider's (I have only played STO for a week or so during the Beta) standpoint. Maybe having little "roll-calls" after the bio-breaks would be a good compromise?

Probably, the recording sounds fine. :)

Yeah it did come through.

All I could think during the Sisko discussion was that Teri will absolutely hate the Sisko portions of Rough Beasts of Empire if she hasn't already read it. :rommie:

Sorry, I was a bit confused initially. (Maybe I still am)

So this isn't really a podcast, but a Vlog.

I was looking around for an .mp3 download link for 5 minutes and still haven't found one, if it exists.

I'm interested in your show, but I'm more interested in an audio-version I can have on in the background while doing other things.

Again, if I missed the download link, and just haven't seen the right links, please let me know. It's not extremely clear where your show is located and which video is the Show for the week.
