Anyone else out there doing one? It would be lovely to compare notes.

I do but I'm just responsible for organising dates for recording sessions and trying not to get incoherently drunk while trying to be funny. Heavy lifting is done by one of my co-conspirators.

What is your podcast about.

I read newspaper articles from 50, 100 and 150 years ago. The goal is to provide a media-centric context for history, because so often the view we get of history from a modern source bears little resemblance to how people at the time saw it. I strive to be funny in my own non-comedian way, but I have no illusions about it ever being entertaining. I'm doing it as a creative outlet and a distraction from existential dread. Beyond that, I just want to respect history and promote the importance of historical context. It's all me, and I'm learning as I go. I do a tremendous amount of research, and the recording and editing takes me freaking forever because I've never before spoken in front of a mic to speak of. I spend about 20 hours making a one-hour episode.

Do you find it comes naturally to be funny within that format?

Sitting in a room drinking beer and trying to make the other two guy laugh does come pretty naturally to me. That's part of our group dynamic though. I did try once to record a solo piece but just ended up hating myself for days.

Go on, lets have a link to your podcast.

Ha! I can relate.

Here's mine. I'm proud of the latest two episodes: 17 because I was so angry and passionate that I think it's relatively listenable, and 18 because it represents what I want the podcast to be.

I've been thinking of starting one about the paranormal. I wouldn't know where to start though. I have a mic from my youtube channel days but I don't know how best to set everything up, how to record/edit, let alone how to check mics for others on said podcast...oh yeah I would also need to find members to be on the podcast.

Any thoughts or suggestions from people who have podcasted or currently podcast?
