    This Sunday's live podcast will cover the latest Doctor Who news (i.e. discussing the latest casting news for the next series) as well as reviewing the animated adventure The Infinite Quest.

    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 an earlier or later show work better for most of our listeners?

    Would Saturday work better?

    Thanks for the continued support and interest.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    I would prefer we kept to Sunday but I'm flexable on time.

    Currently it's 6pm BST (GMT +1)

    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.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    I for one like the aspect of LIVE. Keeping everyone on their toes as it were, I know it's not very "New Media" of me but I like everyone having imput into what's going on wheather it's on mic or not. It's all a matter of prefrence, audio quality aside, I like the multitude of fact and opinion generated by the TalkShoe interface.

    Cheers,
    Mike M.

    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.

    Bollocks...sir.

    From what people have said, it sounds like the audio quality has improved from when I last tuned in...I'll give it another go and see what's up.

    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'

    So is it back to the 'usual' format now or is Podshock remaining permanently as a live - round table Podcast?

    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

    Cheers,
    Louis

    Well I hope you (we)continue with both.

    How about fortnightly.

    I mean by that a Podcast each week but:-

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