Ep2 - Recapitated Podcast RSSiTunes

Posted June 14, 2013 into Spartacast by John Birmingham

Podcast 2 is out. And this time I turned on the mic! Huzzah!

We have a special guest podgrrl this week, Ms Girl Clumsy who dropped in to talk about the art and science of recapping Game of Thrones before giving way to Mr Wah who had a few things to get off his chest about Star Trek: Into Darkness.

This week's show was sponsored by the one pot breakfast at Bungaow 4171 and as always, or at least until they find out, the Hilltop Hoods opened and closed the gig with some of their best, which you can totally buy here.

Need to fix the IE 10 thing. Means I can't pause during the playback and this caused an issue when there was a child related event during the listen back. IE 10 has been pushed out to Windows 7 and it's the default on Windows 8 and Windows RT.

DNABeast reckons...

Shoot! I thought I'd fixed that. Bloody javascript!

Okay, Here's what was happening. It would load the flash player and autostart. Then it would check to see if the browser could deal with html5 mp3 audio. If it could it would remove the flash player and autostart the html5 player. Now you've got 2 players running and only one presents any controls. Bit of a frustration but it should all work okay now.

FFS what kind of anti-nerd drugs were you guys on?

It was the Botany Bay not the Endeavour. They got on it because they were running away after getting their arse kicked, not because they were off on a voyage on discovery.

Khan didn't kill David. FKN Kruge (Christopher Doc Brown Lloyd) killed him in the NEXT FILM! That's the whole fucking point of Star Trek 6. The KLINGONS KILLED MY SON.

Eugenics Wars were in the 90's. Khan was meant to be from the sub-continent (yet was played with a Latino actor - so if someone from india/pakistan can be played by a latino actor, why not have him played by Benedict)

"sponsored by the one pot breakfast at Bungaow 4171"

By sponsored, do you mean they paid you hard cash or is it free brekkies for life? Enquiring minds and all that

Cheers

John Birmingham is gonna tell you...

Neither, actually. I'm just getting people used to the idea of sponsorship.

Best one yet, during the podcast I think its Dan or Greg who says to Girl Clumsy "your recaps are quite different' and he is correct GC's are different, they are loaded with much more awesome.

I was one of those readers finishing a GoT episode then racing to Fairfax to read GC's recaps and howling in desolated angst when they were late. Glad it was not just me. GC and her recaps should be awarded National Treasure status. They made the separation anxiety from Westeros bearable as Tuesday loomed.

Looking forward to both Agents of Shield and your recaps though JB. You've got a high standard to reach after GC's efforts :)

And following hot on the heels of the Spartacast tester, we have the actual Episode One of the poddy. Still with a few issues (like me not using the right mike). And still feeling a bit creaky, especially at the start. But I figure in four or five eps we'll have settled in.

This week we discuss Pacific Rim, Game of Thrones and jerky.

Props to Dan for getting this together so quickly.

SPARTAcast: JB, DNAbeast and TheWah.

The music topping and tailing Spartacast comes from Hilltops Hoods, The Hard Road. You can buy their awesome shit here.

Geronimo Jerky got all your dried meat needs covered here.

Mini Blarkon liked Real Steel - it's a good Dad/Son movie if the ages are right.

The "cheese drive" you ask about was described in Harry Harrison's Star Smashers of the Galaxy Rangers, a space opera parody that included an interstellar drive accidentally discovered by exposing a piece of cheddar cheese to radiation. The resulting substance was called "cheddite."

I wanna play the next time you do one of these.

Give us a couple of eps to settle in, but I do indeed want to have guest panelists on. And via the wonders of Skype there's no reason they couldn't be from the US or UK or former USSR.

Posted June 7, 2013 into Spartacast by John Birmingham

This is the pilot of the podcast, Spartacast as we're calling it. Recorded a couple of months ago, when Skyfall was just out. It had some technical wobbles, mostly because of my poor mike techique and the large concrete room in which I decided to sit, naked, while recording, and with The Wah away travelling for work, we've only just got back to it.

WTF!?

I've got 2 cast running at once, one with a slight delay so its major echo.

Okay., some coherency. I selected the open podcast player but it opened 2 audio bars within the window. I can turn them on and off independently but this is wrong surely?

DNABeast is gonna tell you...

Posted June 7, 2013

Yes. It's an oddity of IE10. It's on my list of things to do.

I just had a search in iTunes for "Spartacast" as I generally manage my podcasts through iTunes and found some episodes of an old podcast (from 2010) called variously "The Spartacast" or "The Weekly Spartacast". The link for it is here :- http://www.thevictoryformation.com/tag/spartacast/

Hopefully, this won't cause problems with the naming your podcast.

Finally listened to Spartacast pilot. This year is speeding by. Have a lot to catch up on (ie most eps 0-13). Starting at Ep0 and going upwards. One a day will do it. I don't know how you make your $ on these, guys. Nice you've got a sponsor. I guess you've acquired more by now.

Great stuff but man, you all speak quickly. Woah!

Will try Rdio on your recommendation, JB, seeing as I listen to music constantly on my iPhone5 while walking and running. I love music.

Re Bond: Daniel Craig might be craggy but he's still damn sexy.
