The Doctor Who Grumpcast

Postby ericthehalfabee » Mon Mar 05, 2018 1:11 pm

As per my post in the ME thread.

Well because there's been quite a lot going on in the last few weeks, Servo and I have decided to discuss it all in person, record the conversation, then publish that conversation in what the kids call "a podcast" (which forever reminds me of Nestor's plan in The Twin Dilemma.)

We'll be running through various missing episode things (as well as DW in general) to include:

Femi-Who, the costume, the logo
New Target novels
Bluray boxsets
The Whotalk Phil Morris commentary and the state of the Omnirumour.
Web 3 shenanigans
Enemy (and further) SE's
Long players being stored in Macra cans
Blue reflections
Charles Norton's M&W restoration

We're feeling very grumpy about most of it, so it will be nice to get it off our chests.

Anyway - if anyone has any thoughts about stuff and would like to drop Servo or me a line for it to be read out/discussed, then fire away via PM. We'll be recording this week and hopefully publishing soon after, so watch this space. :D

Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

As long as you're being brutal and merciless you've got another listener here. :)

I expect witty insults and plenty of sarcasm :D

Nifty idea. Look forward to it!

Burn your boats on the shore and don't take any prisoners.

Also, sub-contract out the editing, for the sake of your sanity!
Have a listen to 42 to Doomsday, a new podcast hosted by me and Mark. We chat about Doctor Who. Hardly innovative, but lots of fun (hopefully!)

I've been playing with editing - took me an hour or two to sort out the pre-recorded intro with lots of tracks/sound effects etc. And while it was loads of fun, I can certainly see syncing, editing and all that stuff quickly becoming a bore, even though the mechanics will get quicker as I get used to Audacity.

I'll go through the pain for this one, then if we do another down the line I might farm it out (to the other half!) I can certainly appreciate the pain gone into making 42 to Doomsday the slick product it now is.

Alternately we could just warts and all ramble on for a couple of hours. Umm nah.

Download the killerringer plug-in if you want Dalek voices for whatever reason.

I understand it's been recorded? Any thoughts on method(s) of release?

It has indeed - and edited, now it's being checked for naughtiness by others.

No plans to do a blog, or social media accounts. The plan is just to upload to a hosting site and put the link here.

Don't usually listen to these sorts of things (I was persuaded by the promise of bitching :D ) but enjoyed that. :)
(Doctor Who) has been hijacked and redefined as a lucrative modern franchise. They've literally taken a square peg and painfully made it fit a round hole by taking enormous liberties with much of its fundamental essence. There's no turning back now.

I know I made a couple of behind the scenes contributions, but even so I thought it was a really good listen; miles ahead of some of the podcasts I've listened to on a regular basis, and on a par with some of the bigger names. With the plus that you're less earnest and more about having fun. You got more assured as the podcast continued, particularly when you hit the Omnirumour, and I thought the double act worked well. I'm sure that if you decided to put out something in the same vein each month you'd build up a good audience. And the "grumpy old fans" market is pretty big and probably underserved right now.
Something Who is a podcast with many episodes:
https://somethingwho.podbean.com/

Most recently:
Episode 17, where I chat with Chris Chapman
Episode 18, where I chat with Toby Hadoke
Episode 19, where we discuss The Faceless Ones and The Idiot's Lantern
Episode 20, Missing Episodes with Steven Schapansky
