Rethinking podcast recording times

This blog is now my diary. I AM HAVING A FABULOUS TIME AT UNI. But it’s probably not worth £27000 (approx 9000BD) over 3 years. Thanks, British voting public. You jerks. Special relativity still doesn’t make sense.

Anyway, yeah, podcast recording times. So last podcast, we essentially made a podcast about nothing. Why was it about nothing? Well, a few reasons. Firstly there wasn’t much news, and with no big releases around, not many of us had actually been playing anything interesting either. Secondly, I didn’t do enough preparation, I was too busy faffing around with vector transformations and mechanics problems. And not understanding special relativity. Normally I have a huge stack of news posts and I pick and choose from them based on who’s in and how long I think the podcast’s going to run for. I didn’t really have such a stack.

For next episode, I’m already starting to prepare earlier, and I’m hoping more interesting stuff happens over the next 2 weeks. Jamie actually did send a good deal of stuff to my email address a short while ago, so I’m also going to have a leaf through that.

The other big thing is time. Here’s the thing – time stops for no man (although if aforementioned man is travelling at a speed close to the speed of light c, it may slow down for observers outside of that man’s reference frame). And I can’t help but feel like our standard recording time is inconvenient for many of our regulars, particularly that it often clashes with work\mealtimes. It’s also not in GLA peaktime (between about 8 and 12PM, GMT), which just seems kinda odd.

To that end, there’s a new poll on the sidebar, so I would be most pleased if y’all could answer it.

Love, Cats


I need an “I’m voting for the one that gets most people in” option >:

I need an “I have no opinion on this topic but I like voting in polls” option.
