Today we recorded our first podcast over the net LIVE in so that anyone could listen to it live as it was being recorded. We recorded another roundtable discussion podcast with several hosts of other podcasts and several of our regular contributors.



Thank you for all that participated.



We did not publicly announce that it was going to be a live on the net recording ahead of time because we were not sure if it was going to work. Today was a trial run. There were many bumps to work out, but I think we did it.



So, in the future we hope to do more and we will let everyone know ahead of time so that we can have more people chiming in, including live listener feedback (i.e. a call-in show).



Once more, I want to thank all that participated in this first one.



Cheers,

Louis

Nah... the next one we will be inviting everyone. This was a roundtable discussion with other podcasters. We were originally going to record as we did when last did a roundtable podcast, all within Skype. But it has its limitations (only so many can be in the conference simultaneously).

We can do live episodes on the net on a regular basis in which would be completely interactive with anyone that wishes to be part of it.

So I hope you will join us then.

Yeah, we can't do anything about the Easter holiday... but we will be recording a live version of the show each week as we review the previous night's new Doctor Who episode. So we hope to continue doing this weekly as we progress through the new 2007 series.

So if you can't make it tomorrow, hopefully you can make it the following week.

Just listened to the Live Podshock - introduced as Podshock 72 but listed as 73.

The sound poor at the start but got progressively better - maybe as people dropped out.

I really enjoyed the 'live' aspect of the show and of course this could mean quicker feedback on episodes as they air.

Definately a great new twist on the 'podcasting' idea.

Hey daveac,

Yeah, it is very rough, ready, and raw... We had to work out the bumps in the beginning... We will try to clean up the audio before it goes out on the feeds.

It is episode 73 by the way... 72 should be out on the feeds very shortly (I am encoding it as I type this message now).

We are recording episode 74 tomorrow ... live on the net!

These live episodes are going to be in addition to our regular podcasts.

They will make their way to the feeds and will be posted here after some post production work. For those adventurous enough can listen to the raw live version on the TalkShoe site if they don't want to wait for the more 'finished' version on the feeds.

Yeah, Australia does present a problem schedule-wise... If we schedule a live show in the evening, it would be better for our friends down under as it will be morning going into afternoon... but it would be the wee hours for our friends in the UK. So perhaps we will alternate the time when possible.

Sigh... I was hoping to participate today, but I have to take my daughter to see "Meet the Robinsons" in 3D.

Oh well... it was a good episode, and I was hoping to talk about it a bit, especially the fact that the three sisters were mis-represented, as we all know they would end up being the inspiration for the three sisters in "MacBeth".

In fact just last night, partially inspired by this episode, and partially because my wife is teaching it in her English Lit classes right now, I watched Roman Polanski's version of MacBeth, which was just wonderful.

In that one, the three sisters are played by two very old women, and one younger, more attractive woman (though they did portray her as being mottled with the black death.)

I wonder if that was the reason one of the witches in this episode was younger while the other two were older?

Anyway, perhaps I'll join y'all next Sunday after the "Fifth Element" episode.

Have fun. I look forward to listening.

Catch you all same time NEXT week, hopefully.

Sean.

Well I half made it.

When I tried to connect on the the TalkShoe page I kept getting 'you are not connected' with a shaded out window that - after clicking on it - clears and I could hear the live podcast but could not join in on the audio.

So I downloaded and re-installed the software again - and still it failed.

It said to 'dial in' but there was nowhere on the page TO dial in.

I heard James say he'd had to connect via Skype so I began to try that.

The instuctions for connecting via Skype didn't seem clear to me - it said:-

dial (number with lots of 77777 in) buyt it turned out the number was for people only if you are already in the USA - so with text help from the 'live podshock' (thanks) I set Skype to dial a US number - but still it wouldn't connect

There were other options with the podcast ID number - and at least two other 'options' - but I didn't know what to do with them. Typing them into Skype got nowhere.

OSo at that point 20 mins into the podcast I decided to just listen in and add my text comments.

Still the whole idea seemed to work - all I need is a 'TalkShoe for Dummies Guide'

Yeah, I think we all need one of those. I am still learning the ins and outs of it all. Sometimes things don't work as expected.

I was disconnected from the conference without knowing I was disconnected... this was because I could still hear everyone and I assumed I could be heard as well... until I realized I was not connected even though I still heard everyone else. When I tried to reconnect, using the keypad on Skype to enter the podcast ID # it kept on stating it was not a valid ID... until I realized it was registering each number on the keypad twice for some reason. I figured out if I muted the microphone on Skype and then keyed in the numbers via the Skype keypad display, it would only register each key press once and then it worked. But this was not the case when I first signed on... I didn't have to mute the microphone on Skype, it just worked.

Very odd stuff.

Oh well, it is cutting edge beta technology... hopefully things will get better as time goes on.

THANK YOU ALL WHO PARTICIPATED (both in the discussion or just listened in as part of the audience).

We will do it again next week.

Louis

Like everyone else, I was (am?) a bit mystified by the whole TalkShoe experience. However, I found the instructional videos "How to use the TalkShoe service" and "How to use the TalkShoe Live! client program" really helpful.

These videos don't really explain the mechanics of physically calling in via Skype very well. (Although the pdf, "How do I connect to TalkShoe using VoIP" is clear for Windows users, if you wanna go that route.)

I'll therefore give here the steps I've used in the hopes that it grows our ranks of participators.


Joining Podshock's weekly Series 3 discussions through Skype (or a regular phone)

This tutorial assumes that you have installed Skype, and that you are able to make outgoing calls with Skype. You will probably, therefore, have to buy one of the plans on Skype that allow outgoing phone calls.

Whether you're using your phone or Skype, you need to set up a TalkShoe account. Click here to begin.

After you complete the first page of the signup process, your user has been created, but in a sense only halfway. You now have a user which can be used to listen in to chats, but not actually to talk or text on them. You need to complete steps 1 and 2 of the second page (currently with a sky blue background). In step 1 you create a PIN number. This number is required to allow you to talk via Skype or your phone (or, indeed VoiP). They recommend that you therefore just make it a very familiar number such as your phone number. Click on SAVE MY PIN when ready.

At the point that your PIN is accepted you have done enough to be able to talk using your telephone.

However, if you want to talk via Skype, you need to continue on to step 2. Here, you'll download the client. The website automatically detects whether you're using a Mac or Windows platform. Once downloaded, install the client according the the instructions provided.

Once installed, find the TalkShoe folder on your computer. Mac users might note that it's a sorta sloppy design for a Mac Ap, in that the application can only be found nested in a folder within the Application directory, along with its support files. The thing you're looking for is labelled, simply, "TalkShoe".

Open TalkShoe.

Given the sloppiness of the Mac design, Mac users might be best advised to right click on the TalkShoe icon in your Dock, once it comes up, and pull down to KEEP IN DOCK. Since the download installs two applications with exactly the same icon, it's probably easiest to bring the one you actually need to the Dock so you can find it easily again later. All users are currently advised that while, theoretically, it shouldn't be necessary to start this application first—in other words, it should be that the website calls this app into use automatically—it would seem that most of our participators are finding more consistent results by using this app to call up the webiste. Indeed, the only visible thing this little app does is to open a window telling you the software is properly installed. It also gives you the option to either JOIN or CREATE a TalkCast. It defaults to JOIN, so keep that selected, and hit the button, GO TO WEBSITE.

This then opens the main BROWSE page on TalkShoe, with the current Live Postcasts on top and the Upcoming ones on bottom. A TalkCast is considered Live from the moment it's 15 minutes prior to its announced start time. So, for intance, this week, Louis had designated that the TalkCast would begin at 1pm EDT. You would have found the Podcast Roundtable in the Live area starting from 12:45pm EDT.

Once a TalkCast has "bubbled up" to the Live area of the Browse page, you can do one of two things with the icon to the right of the TalkCast description. You can choose to JUST listen in. Or you can hit the larger part of the icon and actually join the conversation.

Once you hit this icon, two things are gonna happen. It's going to first check to see whether you're logged in. If not, it will demand you do so. Once satisfied you've logged in, a new browser window will launch, covered by a translucent grey screen with a large black window right in the middle. In this central window will be a series of numbers.

If you're calling in by traditional (or cell) phone, you can dial the number 1-724-444-7444. When TalkShoe answers, it will demand you enter the TALKCAST ID followed by your PIN number. Once you do that you will be connected to the chat, and, so long as you're not muted by Louis, you should be able to freely interact with everyone else.

If you're calling in by Skype, you do much the same. Start a call, and enter the telephone number above. However, the tricky bit (for me at least) was figuring out how to enter the TalkCast ID and PIN. Skype rather bizarrely has two different dialpads. One is what's used to actually place a call. But you can't use that one to enter the ID and PIN. Instead, you need to bring up the dialpad on the connection you've just made to TalkShoe. At the bottom of the window currently connected to +17244447444, you'll see three buttons on the bottom left. One's a pause button, the other is a picture of a microphone (mute button), and the other is a series of regular dots. This is the dialpad key. Click on it, and you'll have a dialpad you can use to enter the Talkcast ID and PIN. Follow the recorded voice's instructions from here on out and you'll soon be chatting away.
All this, of course, is a best-case scenario. In other words, that's how it's supposed to work. But as Louis has pointed out, it is still beta software. We've certainly noted some strange behavior with it.

Louis' "disappearance" from this weeks' recording, for instance, was quite odd. Louis noted last week that after he de-installed TalkShoe, then re-installed it, the second installation didn't work well, so he had to go to yet a third reinstallation. Last week, I thought it was awfully echoy and had, for me, a noticeable delay that made it difficult to figure out where to jump in.

Nevertheless, I think if you follow these instructions (and if I've written them clearly enough), you'll most probably be joining us for the discussion next week!

[/QUOTE]

Snipped main help - but pasted and copied to help me next week.


A couple of points;

I thought the idea of moving from Skype that Ken, Louis and James used before was that that had a limitation of a max of 4 users at once - so how come that limit isn't in effect with Skype + Talkshoe.

I was beginning to think it was this limit of 4 was what had 'blocked me out'

Now - if I read your helpfile correctly (and thanks so much for it) - the reason I couldn't connect is that I've never 'paid' or 'bought' any time or calls with Skype. I only ever use(d) it for talking to my son over the internet ie. Skype user to Skype user.

Your helpfile seems to mean that going the Skype 'dialing' route it is classed as a 'call' unless you used the VoiP - in which case you don't dial the US number.


I'm sure I could sort that out BUT another thing is I'd rather just use the one 'connecting' software ie. it seems daft to have to use TalkShoe and yet still have to use Skype. I quite liked being able to 'text' during the live audio - although I didn't always address my replies to the 'right' person.

And lastly there is the audio thing - a little like Louis mentioned - for a while although the software told me (TalkShoe that is) that I wasn't connected I could hear everybody. If I had had got also connected by Skype then my mic which is built into my webcam would have had TalkShoe as its 'focus' not Skype.

So since I don't want to upgrade (at the moment) my Skype profile into paying to dial numbers - I'll try at least for next week to get TalkShoe working as a standalone program.

Sorry for the long answer but there will be others struggling with this I think.

EDIT Quote 'Whether you're using your phone or Skype, you need to set up a TalkShoe account'

Just reading that line again! Doe's that mean you HAVE to use some form of connection alongwith TalkShoe???

Surely you CAN just use TalkShoe ONLY and be fully involved.

Cheers, daveac

Ahhhh. There, y'see, is the rub. It's not a standalone program. It's merely a facilitator for conversation. All it does is allow a way for people to talk together. It has no telephonic abilities of its own. Imagine, for lack of a better comparison, the television show Frasier. On that show, Frasier has a radio program. People call into the program and are filtered onto the radio program by Roz, his producer. She sits there at the mixer, putting people on the air as is appropriate to fill up the dead air. Now she might have a calling list a mile long of people who are connected and waiting to talk, but she's in no way responsible for providing the telephony that allow the people to call in to the show. TalkShoe is essentially Roz. You still need some way of gettin' to talk to Roz. Hence the continued need for Skype, VoIP or a regular telephone.

That explains a lot - Dummies like me need stuff like that spelt out.

I thought we were switching to TalkShoe because of the limitations od Skype - NOT that TalkShoe was an additional 'helper' programme.

So for people outside of the USA - meaning a regular phone call of 1 hour plus is not wallet friendly - is upgrading Skype - buying in 'credits' or whatever the only option - is that different than 'How do I connect to TalkShoe using VoIP'

EDIT Just downloaded and read the PDF - does using SJPhone work differently than Skype ie. not 'dialing' a number as such and paying for useage?

Cheers, daveac[/QUOTE]Actually, that's still true. We did switch to TalkShoe because of Skype limitations on large calling groups. Skype has a theoretical max of 10 participants, but in practice it's apparently lower than that number. Certainly, it has no way to have, as we essentially did today, a "studio audience". TalkShoe is something of a revolution for those wishing to have mass conference calls, and we're currently willing to accept its flaws because there's really nothing else that does quite what it does.

People outside the US have a number of different options. I honestly don't know that much about VoIP or Skype, but they both are technologies which are "real location independent". They both offer ways in which the user can, for all intents and purposes, "appear" to be somewhere else. For instance, with Skype I can buy a telephone number in area codes all over the world. I'm seriously toying with the idea of buying a British telephone number, for instance. You, likewise, can buy Skype plans that allow for cheap per minute rates internationally. My fee for unlimited calls was $30 for the year, and, really, that's nothing, considering I pay more than that for a landline each month.

If TalkShoe were based in England, and I had to pay per minute to get to a London telephone number, I would have to pay about 2¢ a minute or $2.50 per Podshock Roundtable to participate. That's around the price of downloading a TV program from the iTunes store, so I'd say that's a reasonable figure to participate in a global discussion about a television program.

Still, there may be even cheaper options from your cell phone company or VoIP technology. Or maybe the European Skype branch has better international plans for European residents calling to the US than it does for US residents calling to Europe. My investigations haven't taken me that far into things yet. My guess is that James is the guy you really want to talk to about cheap calls to the US.

snipped - info - thanks

I've been back to the Skype home page and onto the 'payments' page and dailed calls to the USA from the UK are just over 1p a minute. So yesterdays podcast which with the 'tinkering and setup' plus podcast time was about 1hr 20 mins or so would be a total cost of 90pence - 1.50 in dollars & cents.

That's OK.

I already have a PayPal account - which seems to be a good way of 'buying' phone credit.

So before next week I'll probably upgrade my Skype and take part that way.

Let's hope sorting out the 'mic' etc. will be OK as well.

Thanks DarthSkeptical - hope all this chatter will help otheres get their heads around it all.

Just to follow along Dave's thought, there are many such devices in the states as well. Usually packaged with Vonage or Skype signup software. Wish there was a way to test out Talkshoe before a live recording though. I was in on the text chat side of things, and that alone is a boon to Podcasters. With the combined knowledge of the listeners to draw on there is no limit to how smart they can sound Wink .

Hi Dave,

I hope the buying Skype Credit works for you, and look forward to hearing from you on next week's podcast.

I'm the listener who made a comment towards the end of the podcast, I'm interested to hear how my sound came through (haven't re-listened to the podcast yet).

FYI I was dialled in from my cellphone, using a bluetooth headset (actually bluetooth headphones with a built-in mic) on the cellphone. I'm in the US, so the call was covered by my cellular minutes.

First time I tried dialling-in, Talkshoe refused to recognise my Talkshoe PIN, but I redialled and it worked fine second time.

I have a convoluted speaker/mic set-up on my computer for Skype, and wasnt quite shure how that'd play with Talkshoe, which is why I used the cellphone instead.

Anyway, technical details aside, it was really fun listening in, and fun (even if I was a little nervous!) piping in with my comments. As they say on talk radio - "long time listener, first time caller" :-)

[QUOTE BY= shirokuro] Hi Dave,

I hope the buying Skype Credit works for you, and look forward to hearing from you on next week's podcast.

I'm the listener who made a comment towards the end of the podcast, I'm interested to hear how my sound came through (haven't re-listened to the podcast yet).

FYI I was dialled in from my cellphone, using a bluetooth headset (actually bluetooth headphones with a built-in mic) on the cellphone. I'm in the US, so the call was covered by my cellular minutes.

First time I tried dialling-in, Talkshoe refused to recognise my Talkshoe PIN, but I redialled and it worked fine second time.

I have a convoluted speaker/mic set-up on my computer for Skype, and wasnt quite shure how that'd play with Talkshoe, which is why I used the cellphone instead.

Anyway, technical details aside, it was really fun listening in, and fun (even if I was a little nervous!) piping in with my comments. As they say on talk radio - "long time listener, first time caller" :-)

Craig[/QUOTE]

Hi Craig - you came through fine - glad you got sorted out.

I went to Tescos (supermarket) to buy the handset - they sell them online but that would take a free days and I wanted to play - I mean - try it out chatting with my son. However they didn't have any in stock.

But I now thought that using a 'phone' I'll have to type with one finger rather than my 'speedy' two fingers.

So I may just but some credit for now - I can always get the phone with more credit later.

Now a little telling off Big Grin - you joined 12/10/05?

I suppose that's 10th Dec but looks like 12th Oct to us Brits - and you've only made 17 posts!!

Come on get posting - we're up to Series 3 - so plenty to have opinions on.

Cheers, daveac

some snipping

Right I've bought 10UKPs of Skype credit (with VAT thats 11.70 UKPs) so thats about 18 dollars credit.
EDIT - it's 11.50 not 11.70

I've added 'Live Podcast' as a contact with 17244447444
as the dial number.

I take it I will then have to put in the ID 23358?

I suppose that number stays the same and doesn't change with each week.

And of course I also need TalkShoe running.

Next week I hope to be better rested for the comments. What is the max unmuted folk at once?

To my understanding, for those that do not have Skype Out minutes or do not have the unlimited annual call-out service from Skype, you can use the Gizmo Project to call into our live podcast recordings for FREE. You do this by using what is known as a SIP number to call into Talkshoe. Basically think of a SIP number like an IP address. Gizmo and other VoIP software phones such as SJPhone and Zap can use SIP to make calls. In fact, Talkshoe themselves are in the early stages working on their very own VoIP software.

The SIP number for Talkshoe is 66.212.134.192.

Although I haven't tested it yet myself, to my understanding using Gizmo Project, you can call out using the SIP number by entering 123@66.212.134.192. Once connected, you will be prompted for the talkcast ID and your Talkshoe ID number... and then you are in.

For those unfamiliar with the Gizmo Project, it is similar to Skype. Both have their pros and cons. Way back when, we did use the Gizmo Project to record our podcasts. Essentially to bring James into the recording from the UK. But once we needed to add multiple people at once is where Gizmo failed and we stuck with using Skype. We haven't used Gizmo in a while, so perhaps they have improved their conferencing functionality. I don't know. But it is not necessary for anyone that wants to call into our live recording.

The Gizmo Project is available for Mac, Windows, and Linux.

Cheers,
Louis

Hi there.

I haven't downloaded/installed the Talkshoe software yet, and I would like to participate in future discussions, but I have a request. Having the roundtable discussion the day after the initial broadcast makes it hard for me, and possibly others, to have seen the episode.

The "torrent of bits" that contains the new episodes usually don't finish downloading until Sunday afternoon for me in Los Angeles and by that time you have already had the discussion of the episode. Would it be possible to have a one week delay to discuss the episode so that more people will have been able to see the episode?

Thanks.

Hi Derek,

Thanks for your feedback. I can appreciate what you are saying. The reason we do it on Sunday, the day after transmission on the BBC is because people had expressed getting the review podcasts as soon as possible. The live version allows for people to receive the raw version of the podcast without any post production within 30 minutes of it being recorded, or alternatively, people can listen live to it while it is being recorded.

We have been considering possibly moving the recording time later on Sunday so that our friends down under in Australia could possibly participate. Due to the time difference, it is the middle of the morning when we record in Australia. If we do it later, it would still be morning there, but later in the morning.

As it is now, being a little bit behind in post production work, the live episode review podcasts - the finished versions (after post-production work) are going on the feeds a couple weeks after the episode originally transmitted. If we waited another week to record it, I fear it would hold it up even further before it goes out on the feeds.

It is a bit of a balancing act.. I am hoping to catch up on some of the post production work if I can so that they are only delayed a week at most instead of two before going out on the feeds.

Also by doing it on Sunday after transmission, the episode we are reviewing is fresh in everyone minds. Perhaps if we do it later on Sunday, it may work out better for yourself and others in similar situations.

Cheers,
Louis

Hi Liyster,

Yeah, that can and does happen sometimes. Valid point. We try to censor ourselves to a degree not to repeat what others may have already pointed out, though sometimes that is hard to do because everyone has their own perspective on any given point or plot element in the episode being reviewed.

We will try to not overlap as much in the future. The good news is that our last live podcast had much more live listener feedback in it. I suspect as we go along and more of our listeners learn about the live shows, we will get more listener feedback in the live shows.

Thanks again... Your feedback is well worth more than two quid. Wink

Louis

Ooooo! Asking people to hold their tongue for a week after their most anticipated program has aired is tantamount to torture. I still remember how tortured James was when he had seen a series two episode before Ken and Louis, and tried not to spoil it for them during the recording of the then current episode of Podshock.

It is unfortunate that we live in the ADD era where it is no longer the flavor of the month, or even day, but flavor of the minute. Most people want 'it' now, and if they don't have 'it' in front of them, they will search 'it' out elsewhere. Whatever 'it' is.

If the live discussion doesn't work for you due to scheduling, there is no reason why you can't submit feedback for inclusion in a later show. (Louis, maybe we can have an audio feedback tacked onto the end of the review podcast, in the post-produced version for comments on the prior week's discussion/episode.) And, of course, there is always the forum here on the site. You can potentially interact with more people and go into minutia that could never be covered in the podcast.

As Louis said, it is very difficult to get a worldwide audience call-in show scheduled. By its very nature, Doctor Who is inseparably British, and we were diminished by James's absence last week to give us a British perspective on the episode.

I wonder if it's possible to take down the "raw" versions of the episodes from Talkshoe as each completed episode is made available here and on OG? I've heard from a few local people who are a bit confused about there being two seemingly different versions of episode 73 available for download.

Also, is there a way to better label the episodes on Talkshoe so that people can tell what they're about (round table, episode title) before downloading.

There was some call by listeners to get the new episode reviews ASAP without having to wait for post-production. So the episodes available via TalkShoe are the rough and raw versions which are made available almost immediately after recording. Once the finished episode after post work is complete on it, the raw are replaced with the finished polished version on TalkShoe and the finished versions are put on the main feeds. There is no way to take down episode from TalkShoe at this time (no delete option). Thankfully, we can replace the raw versions with the finished versions though.

Mike[/QUOTE]

The descriptions are fairly simple on TalkShoe. Far more simplified than the finished podcast descriptions on the main feeds and here on our site. I am guessing you mean the title of the episode itself. I suppose we can add the Doctor Who episode title we are reviewing in the podcast episode title. It will get rather long though. I am not sure if TalkShoe puts any limitations on title length. But as for the episode descriptions, I am not sure how much clearer they can be than what they are now. TalkShoe requires you click the little info button ( i ) to see the description... perhaps that is why it is confusing. I will see if we can add the DW episode titles to the podcast titles there.

Ok. Definitely not suggesting that you stop posting the raw versions right after we do them, just looking for a way to better explain to some people what's happening. Good to learn that the versions still on Talkshoe are being replaced replaced with the finished product and that there are not ever two versions available at the same time. Maybe of the raw versions were called "previews" or something similar.

The difficulty comes from this being a situation that is easier to understand that to explain.

I think people who are regulars on this forum know what is going on and for people who just download from OG/iTunes it doesn't really matter but there is a group in the middle who are confused. People who tend to download from this site but are not active members of the forum or do not listen to every episode. They see the Talkshoe links not are not totally following what is happening. The friends who have contacted me fall into this category. Maybe a sticky post at the top of the main page above the latest episode that briefly explains the system while series three is running.

You got it, what you are seeing are the raw live recordings in the flash player (they are also available via the TalkShoe web site). These are raw recordings prior to any post production work. Once they are processed in post, they appear on the main feeds (i.e. iTunes and alike).

The raw unpolished recordings are being offered for those that rather not wait for the finished podcasts that eventually make their way to the main feeds.

Just been listenning to the Live Podcast - and Diane (dmwalling?) was talking about she wished the monster had appeared more slowly - it reminded me of 'Inferno' - where the Professor slowly changes and has to start wearing gloves etc.

Of course these were 4 or 6 episode stories so things could be developed in that way.

So I suppose what I'm saying (glass of red wine in hand EDIT - it is after 10 pm in the UK) is that the new format dictates how the story plays out.

Merlin asking on behalf of all the Dummies here ie. my group of one - is this change/update something needed by just the Podcast 'director (Louis in this instance) or do we all need to download an update?

Or is this an upgrade that just adds functunality to the site itself?

Yes - for Podshock Live 81 all went well.

And for any UK, or indeed non-american members who have been put off join in Talkshoe live and joinin in because of call costs ie. Skype costs about 1.5 pence a minute UK to America (about 1.20 to 1.50 UKPs per show)
EDIT:- and you need to register SkypeOUT and pay up-front to use it to phone in.

Then there is now to option to do it for free. With Merlin' help (thanks again Merlin) I connected with Gizmo.

Yeah, I have been using the Gizmo Project myself the last few weeks as I feel it is a more direct digital connection since it is connecting via IP (SIP) instead of dialing into TalkShoe.

I think we also have gotten to the point with TalkShoe that we can do a live show without having it having to go through post production now. Yeah, it will not be as polished, but it means we can get it out to the feeds quicker.

Though we are now behind in our 'studio' recorded shows. Once we catch up with the pending episodes in post production we will get start doing more regular formatted podcasts.

Don't get too excited. After about number 6, the talkcasts don't seem to have any ratings at all. And the ad suggests you can buy your way into the top. Wonder what the rankings actually are based on, cause it doesn't seem to be review strength or number of reviews . . .



EDIT

Yeah, after listening to the little ad, it really is a bit dishonest. Now, I'm not sure how things are ranked when no money has been given to TalkShoe, but certainly $10 gets ya in the top 10. Wonder what happens when they get 11 shows paying $10?

Quick brief-No one has paid in any catagory yet. Here are the top five ratings criteria for placement within catagory.

Talkcasts are now priority-ordered within categories and searches based on five key criteria: 1) Recorded in last 30 days; 2) At least five recorded episodes; 3) At least one recorded episode; 4) Future episode scheduled; and 5) Custom image.

There are more metrics for the ratings but those are the key 5. If you really want to know the game listen to ep 36 off of this feed-

I just listened to a little bit of yesterday's live recording (DW: Podshock #82)... and there is that damn crackle present when I am speaking again. Angry It was NOT there last week, so I thought I had nipped in the butt. But it seems back again in episode 82.

I had just recorded an audio segment for the post production work for episode 77 earlier... I think the night before. It was not present then. I had not changed any of my settings in the time being, so I don't know why it was back when we recorded yesterday on TalkShoe.

I am obviously not hearing it myself when we record, so if it is there again at the next live recording and you are hearing it live, please let me know before we begin recording. Thanks.

Louis - thanks for working overtime and getting out Podshocks 77 and 78.

I noticed when it got to my bit my picture was included - and that's fine by me - I think I sent you one when I did my first 'Feedback' about the HydeFundraisers.

But the picture seemed pixalated and appart from the obvious (a picture of me doing the damage) the quality doesn't sit right with all your other picture links etc.

Can you comfirm what size works best? it looks like 300x300 - and any file size limit ie. 20k or whatever.

I was thinking then anyone who is happy to have either a photo or a larger (better) copy of their avatar up on screen could put up an image. We (I) could set up a thread just for people to add there perferred 'image'

That is if this idea doesn't make your head explode Big Grin

You say the correct size limits here and then I'm happy to start things off by uploading an optimised picture.

Since you added my picture anyway I hope this suggestion won't add to your work but give you better images ie ready-to-go images for you to drop in on post production.

I think whether this idea goes forward or not should be your decision only - but I'd like to know what others think as well.

I haven't read through this thread at all, so I don't know if this has been commented on already or not. As much as I enjoy the idea of the round-table podcast discussing the previous night's episode, the loss in sound quality is kinda turning me off. I'm about 50 minutes into episode 77 and Louis has some kind of buzzing distortion, the levels on the various guests are very different (some real loud, some real quiet), and the overall quality is a lot lower. Is that something about the Talk Shoe site itself? Or is the original raw feed a much lower bitrate? Or is it the way each person connects into the system? I don't mean to be a wet blanket, but maybe the technology just isn't there yet.

I know it didn't start till after we started recording, because one of the last memories I have before I (again) fell asleep at the mic was asking in chat whether anyone else could hear the static. It always happens though in every recording, and sometimes it's really noisy enough that it makes it hard for me to completely hear what everyone's saying.

Having said that, I really don't think it's you; I noticed it, albeit to a lesser extent, in the one CIA recording I did. It's just Talkshoe or Skype or GIzmo or the interaction of those things. I have friends who have cable telephone service and they say they notice occasional periods of static, too. Could just be the current state of VoIP.

Older Podcasts ie. 70 and earlier show as 64k bits per sec - and Talkshoe recorded ones seem to be at 56k bits per second.

Of course some people are calling in via 'phone' 'Skype Out' or by Gismo 'VOiP'

I think if there is an option to record at 64k that might help - but whilst there are new weekly episodes to 'review' I think is the best way to get the 'recordings' out there.

And of course each week - as this is open to 'all comers' - there will be people (like myself) unsure of any 'tweeks' they can make at their end.

I noticed this week that my contribution sounded 'acceptable' for Podcast via Gizmo - but when I joined 'CIA' afterwards it was much poorer - and it was suggested I switched to Skype Out. Even when I did that the qualtiy was only improved a little.

With CIA though there were maybe 6 or 7 'open mics' rather than Podshocks 4 or so.

I don't know what else to suggest but I doubt Louis could churn out 'studio' Podcasts evey week.

Hi Dave,

That was my fault. I do apologize. I thought I had a better quality photo which I had used in the past for previous feedback segment of yours... but I couldn't find it. I figured I may have saved it off on a DVD disc as I often have to do with these files I amass for the podcast... So I had used a 120x120 icon size pic I had handy of you in the meantime. But my intent was to find the better quality picture before finalizing and sending them out.

Now that you reminded me, I bet I still have them attached to your email message you sent me. I need to fetch it from my email again.

Once again, I do apologise.

Cheers,
Louis

Yeah, it is the quality we are getting from Talkshoe. It is a little baffling as I have heard other podcasts using TalkShoe getting better quality. But yeah. I too find the audio quality to be very frustrating. It is a great service otherwise. But I would be willing to pay for a service (currently TalkShoe is free) if the quality was better.

We will be doing 'studio' podcasts again soon. The main reason we haven't done much recently is due to scheduling, having so many previously recorded podcasts backlogged in post production, and being tied up doing the live shows.

I love the live interaction. We will continue to use TalkShoe to do live shows in some capacity even after the new series comes to close (albeit it may not be weekly). But the audio quality is not really where I would like it to be. To make matters worse, we are all recorded on a single track which makes trying to correct and compensate for the audio quality in post production harder as whatever filtering you may apply to the track, effects all the voices -- so what may aid one voice can make another voice sound even worse.

Ken was unavailable for a few weeks as he was moving into a new home. James is now finishing up school and his schedule is a bit tight. But I suspect in a couple weeks, our three schedules may open up a bit for us to get back to doing 'studio' recordings again on a regular basis in which the audio quality will be back to what you are used to with Doctor Who: Podshock. We do have so much to catch up on, especially with feedback and least we not forget or put off the promo contest any further.

In the meantime, things may get worse before they better as after episode 79, the following live podcasts that follow will all be "rough, ready, and raw" -- in other words, they will be going out without any post production work... as-is. Eek! (this was decided as the only way to catch up with all the post-production backlog).

Cheers,
Louis

The overall concept is great, and I would love to take part in one of the live recordings. I'm just not able to acquire the shows in time to watch and then listen/comment. And since I managed to get my wife into the show, I have to wait until we can watch them together (although, she doesn't want to watch part 1 until part 2 is also available so we can watch them back to back...I couldn't wait and secretly watched it by myself while she was out Cool ).

Maybe those in North America that have free weekend minutes should try calling TalkShoe via their cell phones. I would guess that the more IP connections simultaneously, the more issues we will have.

That is exactly what we decided to do with the rest of the live shows starting with episode 80. Taras had suggested it for episode 80 of our podcast as I was already backlogged in post production on the other pending episodes... this enabled us to do another live show even though there was no new Doctor Who episode to review due to it being postponed a week because of Eurovision (or whatever it was). Even though it was a little rough, I thought we could pull it off every week and just do the live shows as a "rough, ready, and raw" podcast. This would actually free up time to do some ''studio' podcasts since the live shows won't be eating up valuable post production time.

So the forthcoming live episodes will be 'rough, ready, and raw' versions if you will (with respects to borrowing that term from James' other podcast) without any post production put into them (except for perhaps cover artwork).

Whereas before, we couldn't get around to doing a 'studio' recording because my time was tied up with post production work, Ken's time was tied up with moving into a new home, and now James' time is a bit strapped with finishing up his Masters' Degree... so I believe an a couple weeks we should be back on a regular routine for 'studio' recordings.

Episodes 80, 81, and 82 should go out to the main feeds by the end of this week. At which point we will be all caught up and in sync with the BBC schedule of reviewing new episodes.

FYI - the numbers in the Overall Rating have no effect in the Stats I posted earlier, yet.

I suppose the closest thing TalkShoe has is the Overall Rating, which at the moment is 4.33 (Max is 5.00) with 18 reviewers. More folk should check out the page, create an account and give a review or better yet a written review.

I believe it takes the date from the first time you rated the show.

je·june (jə-jūn')
adj.
Not interesting; dull: “and there pour forth jejune words and useless empty phrases” (Anthony Trollope).
Lacking maturity; childish: surprised by their jejune responses to our problems.
Lacking in nutrition: a jejune diet.
[From Latin iēiūnus, meager, dry, fasting.]

jejunely je·june'ly adv.
jejuneness je·june'ness n.

I put it forth that it might even be the root of the word Judoon!
All that and JackLass can't even spell the word properly.
Jack should stick to his reality TV and leave we who ponder the universe alone Wink .

I have enjoyed very much the flood of catch up Podshocks.

Sometimes two in a daySmile

I have to say that I am not enjoying the quality of the audio so much but that is more to do with the Talkshoe medium than anything else and nothing to do with the content.

The only problem is that the frequency is postponing my review of Exotron but I am sure you will all liveSmile

I will review and post sometime this week if I am not in a state of ppss (Post Podshock Stress Syndrome) by then

Thanks Bad Wolf...

Today we will put episode 83 which is another live on the net podcast in which we review The Family of Blood. It also means we are completely in sync with the BBC transmissions now.

As for the audio quality.... yeah, we are all disappointed with it. We hope it will improve the TalkShoe service further develops and grows. Right now it is seems like the nature of the beast. One of the reasons we limit callers to just the feedback segments of the show is to curtail on some of the audio degeneration. As it seems the more you add, the more potential audio problems can occur.

Of course, in order to catch up, we released the last few episodes out to the main feeds without any post production cleaning... So they may be even more rough and raw.

But we will be back in the 'studio' to do our regular podcast format fairly soon we hope and we will return with the audio quality you had come to expect from Doctor Who: Podshock.

Louis

Same here! For what its worth, I like the format and that's why I keep coming back since Episode 80 (81 maybe?). I prefer chats/discussions that stay on topic and that's what podshock does best for my taste.

You don't have to dial in, and even when you do dial in you don't have to talk. These his on the Top Ten list are good exposure and I know we Whovians like to have our opinnion on record (even if it's just txt chat).

Yes - please keep listening in.

Some of the quality drop was due to me I think.

With Merlin's help I had corrected my audio settings - but as I logged onto the new broadcast - Gizmo had an update - and a think my 'setting' de-faulted back which resulted in the 'clipping 'dalek' sound of my input.

I hope this weekend I'll be back to my 'northern accent'

TalkShoe Founder and CEO Dave Nelsen has changed how they report their top interactive talkcasts. They now do a top 25 most interactive talkcasts. From what I know of how he views the numbers I believe this is the way it is weighted-

1. Live callers
2. Txt chatters
3. Live audio streamers

This time around for the review of "Blink"
Doctor Who : Podshock LIVE! came in at #11 in the most interactive list.

You know, we had a good deal of people on with us for this episode. I was quite surprised -- pleasantly albeit because I thought it was going to be just the opposite. Due to the time change, I thought we were going to loose people, not gain people. If it were not for the inconvenience of our UK listeners, I would entertain moving the live show to the later time slot such as 7pm EDT. Of course, perhaps the popularity of the story, Blink had something to do with it as well.

We are definitely going back to doing "studio" shows, no doubt. But we will continue the live shows in addition, but perhaps on a less frequent basis. We have tons of stuff piled up for the regular format 'studio' podcasts that we need to get to... including plenty of feedback that has been sent in to us over the time we have been doing the live shows.

In fact, we are hoping to record a regular format show this week sometime, we are still trying to work out fitting it into our schedule to record it.

At the risk of being repetitive in sending praise for the live shows on this thread, the Talkshoe casts are insightful and a fun listen!

Since there are no new episodes being transmitted on the BBC until the Christmas special, we are no longer tied to the Sunday at 1pm (US EDT) slot.

Would Saturday work better?

I was hoping now that the series is over, you'd be going back to the studio podcasts sooner rather than later. I really appreciate the time, effort, and money everybody puts into making these happen. But I'll be honest...I haven't listened for the last 6-7 weeks, because of the audio quality of the Talkshoe stuff. It really is unlistenable (sp? is that even a word?). It pops up each week in my ITunes subscription, and I've just been deleting it...

Yes, it'd be cool sometimes to open it up to a fan roundtable discussion (maybe a monthly event), but Louis/Ken/James is where it all started, and that's where I think it should stay...the rest of us can chime in with comments via the forums.

I know others have mentioned similar drawbacks with the Talkshoe stuff, too, and I don't mean to jump on the bashing bandwagon, but I just wanted to give my 2 cents.

The sound quality is getting better with Talkshoe... albeit not as fast as we would like, the last episode I believe demonstrates that there is an improvement, as well I as I did some slight post-production work on the levels.

We are going to be doing regular 'studio' podcasts again as well. We already have one in post-production. Hopefully that will be finished this weekend.

I know others have mentioned similar drawbacks with the Talkshoe stuff, too, and I don't mean to jump on the bashing bandwagon, but I just wanted to give my 2 cents.[/QUOTE]

As someone who is just a listener and not a participant in the talkshoe shows, SGB, I'll second Louis's comment that the sound quality has definitely improved over the last few weeks, so it might be worthwhile you giving it another listen and see if you find it any more acceptable.

Though the difference in volume from speaker to speaker still keeps me on my toes - often Ken will sound really quiet so I'll turn the volume right up, then someone else will start speaking and my ear drums nearly burst from how loud it is!

Also, not sure if this has already been suggested by anyone, but -

While I would like "studio" shows to resume being the standard podcast now that series 3 has stopped screening, I think it would be cool if we kept having a live talkshoe podcast once every month or so, which could be a roundtable review and discussion of a nominated classic Who story. The next story for discussion could be announced at the end of the preceding live podcast so that people have time to locate the DVD and watch it over the next month. So it would operate kind of like a book club.

Besides being another chance for us all to rabbit on, it would be a great way to introduce the classic series to those newer fans who often ask for viewing tips. Plus, over the last few months of series 3 reviews in the forums, one of the interesting discussions has been the continuing debate about how new Who stories stand up to classic Who - how they're different, and how sometimes we might view the classic series through rose-coloured glasses. So continuing the talkshow review shows - but focussing now on classic stories - is also a way of continuing to re-assess the modern series in the context of the show's full 40 year-plus history.

What does everyone think?

Hear hear! this gets my vote. Whilst I like the Live shows I don't think they would be so interesting if it wasn't a discussion of a particular story. I much prefer the studio shows just because it sounds so damn professional. I tried a lot of Who podcasts before I found Podshock and the quality always put me off. Call me a snob if you like but listening to someone doing a Doctor Who podcast whilst also watching the Superbowl in his living room doesn't really interest me.
Plus I miss the banter and sound effects from the studio shows. I really really miss George Takei's "Oh my". That always makes me smile.

Just read on Outpost Gallifrey:-

'Those who missed the 45-minute compilation of all the episodes of the Totally Doctor Who animated series, The Infinite Quest, can catch it again when it is repeated on the CBBC channel at 5pm on Sunday 8th July.'

How's that for timing - it finishes just 15 minutes before the Podcast starts - to talk about 'The Infinite Quest'

Yes, No, and not exactly.

We are doing studio recordings and will continue with the live recordings but we still haven't worked out the new schedule for them.

We do have a studio show already recorded which is just waiting to be processed in post production. I am hoping I will have time this weekend for it. So it may or may not come out before the next live show.

We will be doing our usual studio recorded episodes back on a regular basis again... so that will be resuming... but we are not discontinuing the live shows either. So perhaps you may be getting twice the amount of Doctor Who: Podshock for the same price. Wink

Louis

Even numbered episodes 'studio based' and odd numbered 'Live episodes' - on alternate weeks.

But what will there be to discuss when no-Who is airing?

I know I'll probably make myself unpopular saying this but I think the live Podcasts need a short break now. I attend several local Who-groups and spread the word of Podshock throughout them. However, more and more people at these groups are now telling me they have given up on Podshock (for the time being) as they really don't like the live Podshocks - or at least aspects of them. I've urged them to register here and post what they do and don't about them but as the forum is very 'pro' live Podshocks I think most are reluctant to air such views.

Personally, I've enjoyed some - hated others - from a listeners point of view, who is unable to make the scheduled live timeslot, I found the longer episodes could grate rather as often there was some repetitiveness. I'm sure the experience is better if you're able to listen in 'live' rather than 'live after the event'. I did find it a bit cluttered sometimes as well.

In summary I would be pleased if they were rested for a couple of months - perhaps instead we could have more 'guest hosts' for sections of the regular Podshocks taken from the pool of regular 'live' contributors?

I get a similar reaction when talking to people at DWNY meets. Many feel that the podcast, both live and studio versions, are way too long. Others feel very uncomfortable with the way the hosts respond to some callers. Still others feel that there are just to many incorrect statments made on the podcasts regarding the classic series or production details, etc. I do not necessarily agree with all of these observations, but we should consider all of them.

I personally would like the podcast to be 60 to 70 minutes in length. This is an optimal episode length. If there is just too much material, then maybe breaking an episode into two parts may change perceptions. Listening to other podcasts, there are still many people that burn podcasts to CD, most likely to play in their car CD player during their commutes.

Firstly let me agree with a couple of points.

Yes the Live podcast has been long recently - perhaps too long - but I would expect this to now shorten naturally as Series 3 has now ended in the UK.

The sound quality which put people off is slowly getting better - though I wish TalkShoe would at least move up to 64k per sec.

I agree that they may not need to be weekly Live podcasts - fortnightly or even monthly (at least during the Summer months)

But as to other things said - I think we need to (jointly) decide what is the focus, or idea behind 'live podcasts'

a) Is it to allow like-minded people to enjoy a 'live' disscussion and interactive 'text chat' in a friendly and 'open-to-all' forum - which is also recorded for themselves and others to catch at a later date to either hear for the first time or to check back on.

b) Is it a group of like-minded people producing 'a recorded audio show' for people to download and enjoy.

c) - and my view - a coming together of people from around the world who get a buzz from participating in the live 'text chat' and audio input on our favourite show - whilst keeping in mind that many hundreds (thousands?) of others can listen at a later date and take enjoyment from it.

d) for those that enjoy listenning to audio content given with the listener as the sole focus then the Studio based Podshock is definately the better format.

e) can and should both options be catered for and how should that balance be reached.

Cheers, dac

Yeah, after this weekend, the live shows will be less frequent, and since they will not reviewing episodes hot on the hells of them being transmitted, they will be much shorter. The live shows started off well in terms of running length, but as the series reached the climax and series finale, the live podcasts ran longer than scheduled. And since they went out without any editing, in order to get them out in a timely fashion, there were obviously not cut down or trimmed down at all in post production.

Future podcasts (live and studio) should all be shorter. I've been advocating for shorter shows for some time now.

The live shows perhaps will go to a biweekly or monthly schedule, it hasn't been determined yet.

Ken, James, and I are long time fans of the series with an obvious passion for it, but we never proclaimed to be experts. So I am sure we have made errors in our comments about the series in some podcasts. It is bound to happen. If we had, we would like to correct them for our listeners if we are made of aware of them. None of us are K9 after all... memories can be faulty at times. It's one of the great things about having the live chat during our live shows is that if an error is made on one of our parts, often one of our listeners will catch it and post the correction in chat which we can address it right in the very same live show.

Keep the feedback coming in.. both pros and cons, it is all appreciated. We certainly don't want to do the podcast in a bottle so to speak.

Cheers,
Louis

I agree that it is fair to take all views into account, but I feel that a few of these comments are in danger of taking the efforts of Ken, James and esp. Louis for granted.

As a casual, but keen viewer of Who since the late 70s - rather than long-term/hard core fan, someone who isn't a member of a fan group of any kind (nor wants to be), nor indeed someone who owns a headset/microphone, or knows how to operate Skype or Talkshoe - I really have enjoyed both the prerecorded and live shows and don't really care how long they last. Long may they both continue!

I love the flexible structure and the occasional rambles and rants of both the regular cast and the guest contributors. Please keep going as you are guys, I'd hate it if this excellent Podcast became too glossy and polished and starting to sound like every other overproduced TV and radio show.

As to those who think its too long, perhaps they could listen in portions, or skip ahead a little, I'm sure that as consumers of a completely free service that you can find some way of coping with an extra 30mins now and again Rolling Eyes .

I really enjoy Ken, James and Louis's passion for the show and I'd hate for that to be constrained by the feeling that the listeners are pressuring them to finish in under an hour, or scrutinising them for factual inaccuracies. Its exactly that kind of pedantic nonesense which has always kept me away from fan groups - until I discovered Podshock.

If 20 mins is all you can spare Louis, then you make the podcast how you want. If you want to ramble on for 1hr, 30mins with additional bad puns and bizzare tangents then I'm with you all the way too! Laughing Out Loud

Common guys, how much time and effort is put in for free by all the contributors to the show. I'm so grateful that this show exists and that people like Louis are willing to give up their time so freely to edit and produce such a fantastic piece of broadcasting.

I admire the democractic and inclusive attitude promoted here, but I don't think the format should be overly dictated by us 'free' listeners who don't have to spend hours actually producing the show. As far as I'm concerned I'm just evesdropping and I love the fact that podcasts like this are made to such high standards without having to pander to sponsors, or viewing figures, or the whims of the massess.

I've been pretty dismayed with this series of Who, but taking part in the forums and downloading the latest Podcasts has made even the poor episodes a really enjoyable experience. If I didn't like some of it then I just skip ahead or turn it off.

Louis sounds like the kind of nice guy who will try and please everyone, but I hope you don't take these demands placed on you too seriously. You're the one who puts the effort in so you produce whatever you like (live or prercorded) for however long you can!

Thanks to everyone who has put in the work here and has rekindled my interest in Doctor Who!

In short: it aint broke, so don't fix it. I'm an adult and I can turn off, skip ahead, and generally manage any episodes I don't like. I'm just very glad that there are people out there willing to make um.

That said, I would be very happy to have a regular Live Podshock as well... But that is because I am greedy and want my cake and eat it Twisted Evil .

Whatever you do I will be listening! I am currently unemployed due to being made redundant but when a job comes my way I will be making a donation to show my appreciation...

I've heard a similar reaction from local Toronto folks and those who come out to the Toronto Tavern each month. I think some of the divide may be between people who have a regular group of people who they talk to about Doctor Who and those who do not.

Can I just say...DITTO! to the above two comments.

I mainly listen to Podshock at work and can get in 2 or 3 a day (with interuptions as I am in a management situation) I have also carted Podshock on the road with me on my 45 minute one-way commute to work when without my handy dandy audiobooks.

I love them and the sponteanousness (is that a word?) of them. And the length of the shows are not an issue with me.

I listened to it live yesterday and that was a lot of fun. Thanks guys for furthering my enjoyment of the Doctor!

I enjoy botht he studio and Live Podshocks. I think the Live ones served a purpose in getting immediate response and commentary for the season episodes. However, I also miss the banter of Ken, Louis, and James and the wonderful Big Finish reviews, interviews, etc submitted by listeners.

I like the idea of a once a month Live recorded chat.

Maybe we could do one on the music of Murray Gold, the special effects of the Mill, etc. Some of the production bits we usually don't have time for in reviewing the content of episodes.

EDITED to add: I also love the super long podshocks. If I can't listen in one go I just break them up.

as Talkshoe hosts can you - if you think it's a good idea that is - suggest in the Talkshoe Forum that on either the Talkshoe main page or the 'Upcoming' page:-

here

they put up a 'clock' showing the EDT time ie. their time.

I often look for interesting 'Up-coming' Podcast and I can't work out how much later they'll be.

If I can see a clock - and I know 'my time' - I can figure out - Oh, it's starting in 30mins or whatever.

When I've been logged in to Talkshoe I've still not got into the Forum to post.

As a casual, but keen viewer of Who since the late 70s - rather than long-term/hard core fan, someone who isn't a member of a fan group of any kind (nor wants to be), nor indeed someone who owns a headset/microphone, or knows how to operate Skype or Talkshoe - I really have enjoyed both the prerecorded and live shows and don't really care how long they last. Long may they both continue!

I love the flexible structure and the occasional rambles and rants of both the regular cast and the guest contributors. Please keep going as you are guys, I'd hate it if this excellent Podcast became too glossy and polished and starting to sound like every other overproduced TV and radio show.

As to those who think its too long, perhaps they could listen in portions, or skip ahead a little, I'm sure that as consumers of a completely free service that you can find some way of coping with an extra 30mins now and again Rolling Eyes .

I really enjoy Ken, James and Louis's passion for the show and I'd hate for that to be constrained by the feeling that the listeners are pressuring them to finish in under an hour, or scrutinising them for factual inaccuracies. Its exactly that kind of pedantic nonesense which has always kept me away from fan groups - until I discovered Podshock.

If 20 mins is all you can spare Louis, then you make the podcast how you want. If you want to ramble on for 1hr, 30mins with additional bad puns and bizzare tangents then I'm with you all the way too! Laughing Out Loud

Common guys, how much time and effort is put in for free by all the contributors to the show. I'm so grateful that this show exists and that people like Louis are willing to give up their time so freely to edit and produce such a fantastic piece of broadcasting.

I admire the democractic and inclusive attitude promoted here, but I don't think the format should be overly dictated by us 'free' listeners who don't have to spend hours actually producing the show. As far as I'm concerned I'm just evesdropping and I love the fact that podcasts like this are made to such high standards without having to pander to sponsors, or viewing figures, or the whims of the massess.

I've been pretty dismayed with this series of Who, but taking part in the forums and downloading the latest Podcasts has made even the poor episodes a really enjoyable experience. If I didn't like some of it then I just skip ahead or turn it off.

Louis sounds like the kind of nice guy who will try and please everyone, but I hope you don't take these demands placed on you too seriously. You're the one who puts the effort in so you produce whatever you like (live or prercorded) for however long you can!

Thanks to everyone who has put in the work here and has rekindled my interest in Doctor Who!

In short: it aint broke, so don't fix it. I'm an adult and I can turn off, skip ahead, and generally manage any episodes I don't like. I'm just very glad that there are people out there willing to make um.
[/QUOTE]

Hear hear!!!

I have enjoyed both the Live and studio based podcast but I think my preference is the studio based episodes. I think this is partially due to the fact that I enjoy listening to Louis, Ken and James discuss things amongst themselves without the pressure of having to ensure that all the callers have time to make their point of view. It seems much more relaxed (apart from poor Louis who has to do all the post production... which I and many others appreciate immensley by the way). I also find that it is more humourous and easy to listen to and I enjoy listening to the Big Finish reviews from such people as Darth Skeptical and others.
When I first discovered Podshock I found myself listening to all the "back catalogue" and found myself listening to 4 or 5 a day (I am currently suffering from withdrawal symptoms and can hardly type because of the shakes!).

That said, I would be very happy to have a regular Live Podshock as well... But that is because I am greedy and want my cake and eat it Twisted Evil .

Whatever you do I will be listening! I am currently unemployed due to being made redundant but when a job comes my way I will be making a donation to show my appreciation... Until then let me take this opportunity to offer my deep thanks to Louis, Ken and James for their hard work in producing such a fine Podcast!!![/QUOTE]

I got a job... Yay!!!

Just checking out Podshock on Talkshoe:-

here

And at the bottom there are reviews people have posted on the show.

The newest one however seems to be just an advert for the reviewers own podcast - not a review at all.

Doesn't seem right to me - I wonder if it could be removed. It's basically Spam.

Now I'm not saying you remove 'bad' reviews etc. - but this post just seems a misuse (or abuse) of the review option.

Yes, but the majority of the "good" reviews are mostly from participants, which is hardly "fair and balanced", either. Wouldn't worry about it too much: TalkShoe's entire set of practices to rate and review its podcasts incentivizes bias of one kind or another.

Yep, we recorded a studio podcast today... that is episode 93. It is a feedback-only episode since so much feedback has accumulated over the past few months that we were doing mostly live shows. We also recorded an Aftershock episode as well...

I am still up from yesterday, so as soon as I get some shut-eye behind me, I can still getting these episodes out there through post-production.

Thanks... I did get some sleep last night (about 6 hours... which was all the sleep I had for the entire weekend for the most part).

Man, I was really tired... my sentence in my previous message made less sense than they usually do... "as soon as I get some shut-eye behind me, I can still getting these episodes out there through post-production." Oh my... "I can still getting these episodes..." what the hell was that? LOL

Wow... and if that was bad, I can imagine how this podcast is that we recorded yesterday under those conditions came out.

It's probably going to need plenty of post work done to it... LOL. Well, actually it will regardless of my condition during the recording of it since it contains so much audio feedback in it.

Anyway... yeah it was sort of surprise on late Saturday night seeing the glaring sun outside realizing it was Sunday morning already. I tried to squeeze a few hours of sleep before the podcast but by that time, I just couldn't fall asleep being overtired and all.

Taras, if post those new astronomy photos you took to your site, please give a heads up. I am glad you got some time away to get some stargazing done. Let me know if you ever see any of my relatives out there. Wink

Can I ask Louis - will the 'studio' episodes of Podshock ie. Podshock 91 - be added to the Talkshoe page?

I'm thinking there may be people who only check there and will miss out on your (Ken and James included) professional podcasts.

Or will the studio and Live podcasts stay - maybe done alternately - be listed diferently?

I have thought about it. I haven't really conclusively decided on it yet. If we did, we would be essentially maintaining three different feeds with the same content. It also complicates further any stats and log keeping on distribution of the podcasts.

Hi Louis - you wanted suggestions for the next Podshock Live recording - which I think you've numbered 95, although if you are alternating with Studios one's I thought it would more likely be number 96.

I think I did mention something like this before but can't remember such an episode happenning (perhaps I even said it on CIA)

Anyway the topic idea is:-

'My Dr Who Collecting Mania'

In Darth's voice :-)

'Whether your collection is just a small number of books and videos or an all encompassing catalogue that includes everything from a replica of the second Doctor's recorder to Rose's Union Jack T-shirt or from a Slitheen Whoopie cushion to a Tardis USB Hub - confess to your passion and seek absolution amonsed like-minded friends.....It's Dr Who Podshock!'

Cheers, daveac

[/QUOTE]

Due to scheduling conflicts, we may not record a studio show next week... that is why the next live show is numbered 95. Of course that could change if we do manage to record a studio show within that time period.

Be sure to put the Live show topic suggestions in the other thread asking about it... Only because I will probably only refer to that thread when looking for suggestions.

Collecting and collectables is a valid topic, one that can be explored perhaps in a show. Though I wonder if we would risk alienating listeners that are fans of the series, but have no interest in the merchandising / collecting aspects of being a fan.

But hey, we could tackle it for show.

A quick question for Louis or other Talkshoe hosts (West?)

When I checkout shows that are 'LIVE' some have a 'Listen Only' button as well as join in next to them.

Without Logging in I can just listen to those - but not to others. Is that under the control of the Host?
ie. can he set it either way?

Also does the Host know about these 'Listen only' people as I'm assuming they are not listed in any way on the Chat page.

Just interested, daveac

[/QUOTE]
If the host is dialed in to the show, the 'Listen only" button will be active for any show. There has been a recent upsurge of shows that, although scheduled, the host does not start the show. The host can get a report after the show that has the stats for the show, those stats include the number of "streamers" (the folk that used the listen only option. During the show there is no way of determining the number of streamers.

One thing, (and if its already been mentioned in this thread, apologies, but its a LONG thread and I ain't reading through all of it, lol), but you could do with a final polish on sound etc. On our poddy thingy, (www.staggeringstories.net) I go through it with a fine tooth comb, editing out gaps and the odd um and er - I know ya can't really do it with an interview, but around that you could polish and get the thing rattling along happily Smile

New TalkShoe client release scheduled for tomorow morning 9/7/07.

Just an FYI so you can't say you wern't WARNED Wink .

New TalkShoe client version is starting on Friday morning starting at about 2 AM EDT. So with server upgrades and client upgrades going on I highly recomend that you find a show Friday evening or far in advance of the Troughton call in on TalkShoe. The client software is an auto push so as soon as you launch the client it takes care of itself, just not sure if this one will require (documented or not) a reboot to work properly. So you have been warned, find a live show to come into to test the new version. Best guess between 7 AM EDT Friday and as far before 1 PM EDT on Sunday as you can get. Will post more when I have a consolidated blurb.

Cheers,
Mike M.

Thanks for asking me to help out yesterday. it was an absolute pleasure. I have loved podshock for more episodes than I care to remember. lol

The length of the show was always perfect for me as (at the time) I lived 120 miles from my GF when I first started listening and you and the team were my passengers on the long weekend drive thanks to an Itrip and a car stereo.

if you ever need help just shout.

However... I wont be around on the 21st of October as I am getting married and the show will be recorded at the same time as the best man will be making his speech so My bride may just get a little annoyed if i wander off and come on line and talk about Tom Baker.

Dont worry. Doctor Who wont be that far from my thoughts. Song for Ten has been added to the Evening play list and I more than suspect I will have a toy sonic screwdriver hidden in my coat (The Sf equivalent of a comfort blanket.) and my wedding coat makes me looks more than a little like a clockwork android... (and also like Ian Holms Hobit if I take the coat off...so its not all good).

Did the 'dandy doctor' impress you - any particular story that you enjoyed?

I mentioned this on Sunday's live show.... but for those that were not there live.. or had not heard the raw recording of it yet. We will most likely be postponing the scheduled November 4th live show due to the scheduling conflict with the United Fan Con. We hope to be in Massachusetts with Wendy Padbury (Doctor Who companion Zoe Heriot) that weekend.

The November 4th live show would have been the Peter Davison era review, so it will be pushed back to the next live show which would be in the following two weeks.

The next live show on October 21st is still on, we are set to review Tom Baker. I haven't had a chance to update the web site promo on our front page yet.

However... I wont be around on the 21st of October as I am getting married and the show will be recorded at the same time as the best man will be making his speech so My bride may just get a little annoyed if i wander off and come on line and talk about Tom Baker.
[/QUOTE]

I just wanted to send out my personal congratulations on your wedding!!!! That's great news. I also have to drive a few hours on weekends to see my girlfriend and your podcast has been a good friend and kept me highly entertained on my journeys. I've listened to your doctor-specific episodes multiple times.

I also wanted to apologize for missing out on the podcast this past Sunday. I was really looking forward to participating. Unfortunately, it was 10am on the West Coast and my girlfriend still asleeping in my tiny apartment, so I had to quietly read my latest copy of Mojo Magazine instead. Despite the issues with talkshoe, it was absolutely fantastic. Everyone did a fantastic job.

I mean, I know I am a female, but I don't know if you were refering...oh anyway...I was really looking forward to this one...I am about 1/2 way through watching the Pertwee years (as I have been playing catch up the past...3 months? And...

Someone called me 15 minutes before the show started, and talked...and talked...so I missed the show.

I am so bummed I have missed the Hartnell and Troughton shows as well (live) I could have contributed. Now you guys will probably be way ahead of me on the next podcast...

Oh well, what's a girl to do?[/QUOTE]

Yes - you were one of those missed!

'What's a a girl to do?'

Well for a start - post in this thread or start a new one.

How are you enjoying the third doctor stories? Do you agree with what you heard on the Live Podshock?

Did the 'dandy doctor' impress you - any particular story that you enjoyed?

Louis - when we've gone through all 10 doctors - and maybe a Unit one - how about a 'Catch up' Podshock where people can give their thoughts of any of the last 10 - last 100 Podshocks?

Cheers, daveac
[/QUOTE]

Hey Dave!

I have been enjoying the 3rd doctor so far...my next episode to watch is the Mutants. I have to admit, with so many episodes focused on UNIT and the Master...they are starting to get a bit jumbled in my head (and I could be cramming them way to close together, but why watch Doctor Who in moderation?)

I love how active Pertwee's Doctor is, he will take on anything; hopping on jet skis, repelling, kung fu fighting multiple people...he is ready to GO!

My fave story so far is "Inferno", I really like parallel universe stories. I liked "The Daemons" too, partly because of the archaeology aspect of the story and for some reason I really liked the character of the local "white witch" and how she knew something was going down, but no one listened to her 'cos she was the local nutter.

In general, I have been enjoying my trek into classic Who. I have liked all three of the first three doctors...and then I am also partial to any Dalek story. LOL

In the Live Podcast I think we end up agreeing that 'Inferno' would be the best story (of the 3rd Doctor) to show new fans.

That 'white witch' lady in 'Daemons' - the actress who played her - nearly always did 'scatty auntie' parts in childrens Tv in the '70's & '80's

Loved the Master in it to 'Oh mote it be' - and Bok.

Also, did she ever imagine while working on Doctor Who that it would be such a long lasting show and how much the fans care about the actors on the show?

OK, now that I typed them out they seem lame, and I am sure she has answered these a million times...

Hi there.

I always forget about tuning to the live shows as they are happening. I'm just used to listening to the shows on my iPod. However, I wish that I had remembered about the 8th Doctor show because I have a lot of information about the U.S. broadcast.

Also, it turns out that a friend of a friend of mine owns the McGann TARDIS console. No kidding. He is in the entertainment industry like myself and he was friends with the designer who decided a couple of years ago that he couldn't afford to keep the set piece in storage any longer, so this guy paid to have the movie's TARDIS console shipped to his house to go along with his Dalek and Cyberman original props.

If someone can tell me how to post an image to the forum then I can post the picture for you.

That is a pity - we needed more input on that show.

And pictures of the console would be great both in a thread in the Eight Doctor section of the Forum AND in the site's Media Gallery.

In fact Uploading to the Media Gallery would be the easiest as you can upload from your PC

The other method is to join say a PhotoBucket site and upload to that - then link to here. (size limits are 1024x768 for free use I think)

Or is there a better way - Louis?

Unfortunately, this weekend is also the same weekend in which we are appearing live at I-CON. So we are doing a show in front of a live audience there. There was some thought of also doing it live over the net, but I don't think it would be feasible to do technically given the set up at Stony Brook where I-CON is taking place.

So we had to push the live show over the net to the following weekend. We will do two short shows covering episodes 1 and 2 of the 2008 series geared to the UK audience and those elsewhere that are able to see the episode. Next month, after it shows in North America, we can do another half show for US audiences. The two then will be merged into one before it goes out.

It's kludgy, I know. It would be far better if the transmission dates were closer together in the UK and US... but we are trying to cater to both fans this way the best we can.

So at this point, it is set for the 13th of April.

Cheers,
Louis

Thanks Louis and Dave, feels a little odd writing to both of you after listening to you both so often!

Looking forward to the 13th and hope I'll be brave enough to talk, I'm a little nervous but hope to be able to chip in a few comments, you're all so enthusiastic and friendly, I also find Michael (Tin Dog) strangely reflective of many of my opinions, possible because we're more or less the same age.

I might dip into the CIA this week, so far I've stuck with Podshock really because of limited time that and the time slot suits me more than CIA (when it follows Podshock).

Really looking forward to the next 13 Saturdays I've got a good feeling in my bones, I suspect it'll build up to the second half of the season much like last year. Todays Radio times really got me in the mood :-)

Yep, that is right. I explained in another posting.

Since there was no resolution on how to address both the US and UK audiences... We are going to try to do our best for both audiences by recording a short live segment after each UK transmission of an episode of the 2008 series, and then a few weeks later when that same DW episode is shown in the US (on the Sci-Fi Channel for example) we will record another short live segment reviewing that episode for the US audiences. The two segments will then be edited into one podcast and put out on the feeds (of course the live Talkshoe feed will go our immediately).

I admit it is not the best solution. I really wish the US and UK showings of each episode were closer together so we can just do it all in one show. But I somehow doubt that UK listeners and listeners that make it their business to see the episodes as they are transmitted on the BBC will really want to be reviewing and discussing them a month later when they make it to the US shores, as they will rather be discussing the more current episodes.

The reason why there are two scheduled for the 13th is simply because there was no way to schedule one for this Sunday with I-CON taking place with us doing a live show there (in front of a live audience that is, not live on Talkshoe). If I-CON had scheduled us for Saturday instead, it would worked as we could have done the live show there today, and then do the live show over Talkshoe on Sunday.

So instead, we will play catchup next week by recording two segments. One on episode 1 and one on episode 2 of the 2008 series.

I hope that was not too confusing.

Cheers,
Louis

P.S. - Plus, I need to schedule the new live spin off podcast which will most likely premiere on Saturday, April 12th.

Due to problems with Talkshoe, we will have to re-schedule our live show reviewing "The Fires of Pompeii" (the first of two (one for UK listeners, followed by other for US listeners after it shows on Sci-Fi Channel)).

I am guessing it will a live show on Saturday to review "The Fires of Pompeii" and then we will record our review of episode 3 on Sunday.

Let's hope Talkshoe cooperates.

If we do something like this again on the same day, we will be sure to space the shows out so that there are hours apart at the minimum. That or simply record them both in one recording on Talkshoe and then edit them into two in post-production. The only reason this was done this way to begin with is so that those who may not have seen one of the episodes would be assured not get any spoilers... having them contained separately seemed like a better way to go to assure people that they won't accidently hear spoilers.

Louis

This Saturday (26th April) we are recording the 2nd live segment reviewing Partners in Crime for the those that are catching the new series on the Sci-Fi Channel.

It was originally scheduled for 12 noon, but it had be rescheduled to that night (8pm) because it would have conflicted with Ken and myself being at the Pod Camp NYC expo.

Though I am not sure how well a 8pm timeslot on a Saturday would work for the targeted audience. Perhaps we should do it earlier on Sunday? I don't want to get into the same trouble with Talkshoe as happened last week though with one show stuck in limbo and we couldn't start the second show.

Any thoughts from those watching it on the Sci-Fi Channel?

Cheers,
Louis

There's 2 lined up!

One on Saturday 'Review of "Partners in Crime" (Sci-Fi Channel)'

Sunday 'Review of episode 4 of the 2008 Series'

Cheers, daveac[/QUOTE]

(replying from another thread)

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Saturday segment may need to be rescheduled. I will have a better idea how things are going to pan out for this weekend by tomorrow I hope.

At this time, the Sunday live segment should still be a go.

I will do my best to keep everyone posted.

OK.. I promised I would keep everyone posted. I think both Saturday and Sunday's scheduled recordings can go on as planned.

In fact, I may now have some leeway in the Saturday's schedule that we can move the show to better time perhaps.

I had to cancel my appearance at PodCampNYC due to circumstances that had arose this week. I hope to attend next time.

If it stays at 8pm EST - 1am here in the UK I'll drop in to listen (and try not to butt in too much)

(EDIT - Of course it needs to go out at the best time you can fix for the US viewers.)

Maybe even James won't be studying at that time of night.

It was originally moved to 8pm because during the day I and possibly Ken would have been at the PodCamp NYC expo today. I didn't expect to be able to record the live segment until this evening. As it turns out, due to a death in the family, I had cancelled my registration for PodCamp NYC today as I wouldn't be able to attend. So I am not at PodCamp NYC right now.

So far, I have heard nothing from the US fans following the series on the Sci-Fi Channel as to tonight's time slot. Yah or Na.

I would had liked to have promoted it better as well, but I just didn't have the time this week. We will see what happens tonight... we will see who if anyone shows for the Sci-Fi Channel live review segment... That reminds me, I should send out email reminders now about it.

It can be confusing... I have to remind myself what feed will be what at times. This is what is being planned at this time:

1) Main Feed - Enhanced Podcasts (studio and limited live review shows)

2) Main Feed - Plain MP3 podcasts (studio and limited live review shows)

3) Doctor Who: Podshock Unbound (live open topic shows)

4) Video Feed - Video podcasts (coming soon)

5) Doctor Who: Podshock Live (raw unedited live review shows only)


The "live review shows" are the live over-the-net podcasts in which review the new episodes as they are transmitted. They will be limited to 14 per year (as per the BBC), actually next year only 4 or 5 since it will not be a full series in 2009.

As for number 5 - the raw unedited live review shows only feed this will serve the same purpose it serves today, it will enable people to get the live review shows immediately as they are recorded. They will be raw and unedited. It is essentially only for those that don't want to wait for the finished episode to appear on the main feeds.

Doctor Who: Podshock Unbound is going to be "unedited and raw" as well. These will simply go out as they are recorded. I don't want to take post-production time away from the main feed shows for this spin-off podcast. This podcast is really for those that enjoy the live over the net format and want to listen to and/or participate on it. It will be a regular weekly one hour show.

The video podcast will be just that, but it won't have any of the audio shows on the feed and there will be no set schedule when there will be a video episode.

So basically the 3 audio feeds we have now, will expand to 4. Then we will also be adding a video feed, bringing the total podcast feeds to 5. But the 2 main feeds will be identical except for the format (AAC Enhanced Podcast on one and plain MP3 on the other). So people will either subscribe to one or the other, but not both.

I hope that clears things up a bit for everyone including myself.

Cheers,
Louis

Question [/QUOTE]

We had trouble getting the Sci-Fi Channel viewers to attend. Although it just have been a scheduling thing. Perhaps the following morning after the episode airs just was not the best time to have the Sci-Fi Channel viewers live segment recording. But a better time hasn't really come to the surface.

Then I figured the spin-off live podcast could serve that need. But recent changes with Talkshoe has us reconsidering the idea of adding a new live show.

At this point now I am unsure how to include them.

Perhaps they are not visiting this thread either thinking it may contain spoilers. I should start a separate thread for Sci-Fi Channel viewers to solicit their input on the situation.

Louis

I was up late because I was determined to get some editing work done. I didn't complete the task I set out to do yesterday, but I at least I got some work done on it. I needed to do at least that much before I could even think of retiring for the night, no matter how tired I might be.

If I could just obtain some Sontaran technology so I can produce a clone of myself just to handle post-production work, it would really work out for me. Though I may be crossing the line into enslavement... even clones have (or need) rights as well.

Anyway, today is another day... I think.

[/QUOTE]That's an achievement, and it should of course be noted. However, I do feel obliged to point out that as we've been climbing at TalkShoe, our numbers have dramatically slipped at PodcastAlley. We used to be solidly ranked in the top 20 of all Film/TV podcasts, and were clearly the #1 Doctor Who-related podcast. Those days, sadly, are past. Still, it's remarkable that we haven't even gained 50 votes in the last year, nor have we gotten a comment over there in about a year. During 2006/7 we'd typically get about a comment a month. All this seems to suggest, however imprecisely, that we've stopped attracting new listeners.

I wonder sometimes if we're really still a podcast or just a publicly accessible conference call. While that call is still fun, It bothers me somewhat to hear the Podshock Live! recordings being referred to as, simply, "Podshock", cause they're not the same animal, any more than a kitten is a lion.

Indeed. That's the whole discussion from earlier in the year. They really are two completely different animals. Podshock was an audio magazine but it is now an audio message board/forum and increases of tens or hundreds or participants or listeners on one side have resulted in losses of thousands of listeners on the other.

Most people who already take part in the live forum style shows or participate in the forum...but by any count a tiny minority of those who used to listen to Podshock. It was that very mixture that drove away a large percentage of the Podshock audience. I don't think most have a strong opinion as many, or perhaps most, of them just don't bother listening anymore. Unfortunately blunt but unfortunately true.

It happened very organically and out of necessity but in retrospect mixing two very different formats turned out to not be a good idea and I think the emergence of one effectively killed off the other.

I have been out of the Podshock loop since series 3 ended last year. Basically b/c I didn't have the equipment to gather and store podcasts. But as of about 2 weeks ago I am back and catching up. And I was wondering why the most recent feed on the main Podshock line was dated so long ago. This whole live feed business was completely new news to me. But now that I have heard my fair share of both feeds there are things that I like and dislike with each format.

With the Live format I like to listen to the whole online forum conference call kind of thing. With the old traditional Podshock format, my favorite part usually was when the online participants would round robin discuss the current or classic episode of the week. Also, the fact that the live shows require considerable less post-production and the relative speed in which they come out is another asset. Also they tend to get more to the point right away compared to the old format. Also I've wanted desperately to participate in a live broadcast myself and put in my own spin on things. Although I've been a Doctor Who fan since 1983, but never in my life have I ever been able to discuss it with another serious fan directly or in person. I just haven't known any others. This forum here has been my only outlet during all my years of being quite a die hard fan, and my participation just started back in 2005.

But alas yes, the old format had it's charm as well. I starting listening to Podshock since show #1 and for some reason I always liked how Louis first improvised that typewriter sound effect when they started doing the news segment and kept it going for quite some time in following episodes. But ever since that typewriter sound effect went away I miss it soooo much! But yes, the release time for the traditional shows was a bit much and a pain.

So in the end I love both formats. Yes, I think a healthy mix of both would be ideal, but considering we are/were just in the middle of an active season it's totally understandable that the Live format would dominate right now.

But I must add one more thing. Ever since I discovered the Live feed, I always felt it should have it's own name and be more like a companion, sister, or supplement show to Podshock. Like Doctor Who: EarthCast or something like that. I think that sounds nice, especially since you like to refer to it as being an international podcast.

From what we've heard from those more involved in the podcast world it does sound like the statistic do indicate that overall downloads/listeners are down.

Just as valuable is I think the anecdotal evidence that a number of us have mentioned in recent months. My anecdotal observation is that 100% of my friends who were listening to Podshock have stopped.

The live forums are a nice community but they are one that is of interest mainly to those who take part and a circle around them.

So now that the current season/series is concluded any plans for future shows?

Perhaps take some time off from the weekly grind for a little bit, yes?

dont worry about podcast ally.

there seems to be huge issues with that site. nothing is updating and its all over the place.

listeners are down a bit. Ive lost some since the start of season 4 but I gained MUCH more than that at the start who seem to have stayed.

Maybe the BBC comentry is effecting the numbers?

yeah a few weeks off.

however... isnt there some sort of Jump con thing to keep you occupied? lol

From what we've heard from those more involved in the podcast world it does sound like the statistic do indicate that overall downloads/listeners are down.

Just as valuable is I think the anecdotal evidence that a number of us have mentioned in recent months. My anecdotal observation is that 100% of my friends who were listening to Podshock have stopped.[/QUOTE]
As I posted a while ago in this very thread, this is also the feedback I've been getting from various group meet ups.

[QUOTE BY= MikeD] The live forums are a nice community but they are one that is of interest mainly to those who take part and a circle around them.

Mike[/QUOTE]
CORRECT - I couldn't have put it better myself! I used to be very active in this forum, what I loved about the site was the small and friendly feel about it versus the bigger forums which seemed rather daunting to a newbie to that particular site.

However, I now feel that as a result of the 'Live Podshocks' this site has lost some of it's charm, the forum seems, to a degree, to revolve around the live shows and if you're either not able to join in with the live show for what ever reason or you just don't like the live show then you don't feel part of the community. For example, just look at some of the threads after new episodes have aired with folks stating they can't wait to discuss the episodes in the live show or worse, saying they won't post what they think because they're saving it for the show. I'm not for one moment saying I wouldn't be made welcome if I was to participate in one of the live shows (I'm sure I would be) but not everybody is able to, or wants to, dial in.

Your comment in a previous post about it seeming more like a conference call now seem (to me) to hit the nail square on the head. I find this a great shame because I used to love PodShock but now, if I'm totally honest, I just skip through most episodes (i haven't bothered with any of the series 4 shows). I think the Live shows would benefit greatly from having a Time limit (say one hours), this would help to focus peoples comments and keep the show tighter. Sorry guys but I hate it when somebody joins the chat just to say they've got nothing to say other than "I thought it was a great episode" or "I wanted to say I agree with Fred's comment" etc... It seems very much that the show is being made for the small number who participate rather than the larger number of people downloading the show.

All of the above is, course, all in my most humble opinion.

And there are others that would agree.

A couple of points to mention - this is a smaller community - there are usually only 110 to 120 active posters.

The Live podcast this week had over 100 callers.

The Live podcast is only a few hours after the airring of the episode - less than a day - so it doesn't stop people holding back for long. In fact many 'listenners' will say they have 'only just' finnished watching the episode as the cast starts.

And all this 'bunching' around the podcast is only for the 13 weeks of the UK airring ...no doubt things will move back to the LIVE show only being every two weeks.

It is a pity that the times won't suit everybody - but when Louis offered a second slot for the US screenings - not that many new people showed up.

Cheers, daveac

this past Sunday was the first time I've been able to listen to the LIVE Podcast actually LIVE! I had a lot of fun, watching the chatting (until I gave in and JOINED in) and listening to the behind the scenes at the beginning before it all kicked off. Unfortunately I was sitting in the airport waiting for a delayed flight, so I didn't get to listen to the whole thing and didn't get the chance to join the queue to talk before they let us get onto the plane and take off (only five hours late on a three hour flight to NYC, not bad - but I would have rather waited at home - only five miles from the airport - than in an airport with the rest of humanity!)

Still -- tech problems aside, a fun time!

give us a chance to mull over the whole season/series and then see them all with fresh eyes.

I'd promise to join in but given the state of my pc (and now my dead ipod too!!!! Frown ) I cant promise to join you all. (which REALLY annoys me)

Well, I thought we could have combined in last week's live show... But if we had, it would probably have been a 6 hour podcast, as it were, it was close to 3.

Ken and I discussed doing it this weekend, but I think Michael (Tin Dog) has tuned into our thought process. So perhaps we will schedule it after a little respite. It won't be this week (tomorrow) and next week is JumpCon Boston. So perhaps sometime after that though.

[QUOTE BY= shockeye07] I really enjoy listening to the podacasts but Louis, do you think you could turn up the volume on your microphone this week ? sometimes I can barely hear you. I download the show off Talk shoe & listen on my iPod.[/QUOTE]

Is it that low on the Talkshoe recordings? I hadn't realize since I haven't had the chance to listen to any of their recordings yet.

It's a shame since I am now not sure if I will ever have put this series of live shows through post production as was originally planned in the beginning of it.

I am simply telling people to grab them off the live feed at this point.

Hmm...

Oh well, I need to decide what I am going to do with all these live shows as far as post-production goes.

My audio should have been better in the last few weeks. As I had discovered that I had moved the microphone at some point on its boom and it was being misdirected. It is corrected now though.

Louis

[QUOTE BY= DarthSkeptical] ...
I wonder sometimes if we're really still a podcast or just a publicly accessible conference call. While that call is still fun, It bothers me somewhat to hear the Podshock Live! recordings being referred to as, simply, "Podshock", cause they're not the same animal, any more than a kitten is a lion.[/QUOTE]

As previously reported, Doctor Who: Podshock will have its spin off podcast exclusively for live over-the-net shows. This was going to be Doctor Who: Podshock Unbound... but essentially it has been put on a hold for the time being. Meanwhile the live shows since April (this year's series reviews) will be rolled up into the separate live feed (either the existing Talkshoe feed or the Unbound one) and be renamed Doctor Who: Podshock LIVE. So it will have it's on identity in so far that it is the live version of the podcast.

Meanwhile the main feed will be the more "traditional" Doctor Who: Podshock podcast. It will be mostly studio shows, but will also include the live IN PERSON shows we do in front of a live audience. Such as those at I-CON and Gallifrey and the upcoming JumpCon ones. Perhaps an occasional SPECIAL live over-the-net show here and there.

This way those that are not intereseted in the live over-the-net shows, won't have them on the same feed as the regular show. Those interested in the live over-the-net shows will need to subscribe to them either on the Talkshoe RAW feed or possibly a forthcoming separate live feed (which may have more finished versions of them on it).

We are hoping this solution will provide the best of all worlds for everyone.

Now that the 2008 series (AKA "Series 4") has come to an end, and with that so have our live podcasts reviewing them, we can now focus more on the studio shows again.

Cheers,
Louis

Don't do anything more that for iTunes than put up the PodShock standard image with maybe a different number for each and a 20 second disclaimer at the beginning of each 'rough, ready & raw'

I would be happy to do some basic 'cleanup' work on any if you wish - though I'd need a way to get the 'tweeked' audio back to you.

I know ive said it before but i feel that the live sows are just as much a part of podshock as the studio ones. Im with dave.

just shove the talkshoe shows through a sound enhancement software. I think Tony G sent me some free stuff. and then upload them as part of the main feed.

Ifg people dont want to listen. then they will wait for a live show.

aything else is over complicating things

Not to be picky, but I think he was looking for the reviews of the show for the Sci-Fi Channel viewers, There was to be a review for the UK screening of the show and then when the show aired in the US (via Sci-fi) there was to be another show.

Unfortunately after the second episode aired in the US there were no more aditional reviews for the show. It just seemed redundant to do so. Everything that could have been said was fairly well covered in the review of the BBC broadcast of the show.

However the reviews for the BBC feed are pretty entertaining so enjoy them.

BTW: There still isn't a full-year review for the 4th series (season) of the show but I'd be surprised if Louis, Ken and James weren't waiting for the series to complete in the US before doing so. So look for that to happen (I hope).

Did they ever do a series 4 recap live podcast? I had been holding off on burning my last DVD-R of the final eps and usually include the series recap Podshock. Near as I can tell, there wasn't one but I may have missed it.

Just recently, I've threw the idea out there to the Doctor Who: Podshock crew about scheduling a show recapping the 2008 series. I haven't received any feedback on it. I was beginning to feel that perhaps the time had passed for it.

Perhaps I should have been asking our listeners and subscribers. From this posting, I can gather that maybe there still is interest in doing a recap show.
