(Some Messed Up People)   This Podcast stinks. Subby could use some suggestions to help clean it up. Any help appreciated. You might want to start after Episode 2. Got an hour or two?   (cyrilmccoypodcast.com ) divider line

I would cut down on the swearing. I do tend to have quite a large library of colourful metaphors at my use.
But still- want to get popular ? Find new words. Pacing is okay, topics are kinda not my bag. You two do seem to flow well together. Audio seemed good to me. Balanced . Gave it 5 .5 minutes and bailed when you talked about the Ramones. Not my favourite band either, but I would NEVER make things up or guesstimate about them. Its called show prep- take 5 minutes and read.

Hey- you asked. Best of Luck

I have to agree with alienated. The best advice that you could possibly be given regarding your podcasting is to read instead.

rooftop235: Angry Mancave. Model yourself after them.


Oh yes, by all means copy the other guys. That has worked brilliantly for Hollywood, hasn't it? Sorry, but doing what another podcast is doing is stupid advice. Learning from it is great, and good advice, but then find a way to use what you have learned to develop something in line with your own poersonality and talents. Modeling yourself after it is what you do if you have no originality or creativity, in which case you should go back to square one and read a book.

Balchinian: Sorry, but doing what another podcast is doing is stupid advice.


i agree

most podcasts use music or spoken words to express their ideas

you should use high pitched screeching noises

i can't think of another podcast that is dedicated to high pitched screeching noises

Your pacing needs to pick up and flow. Have a cup of coffee or something. The half-awake thing doesn't work- likewise the heavy breathing into the microphone. Practice your dialogue before you record; you had some good stuff in there, but there was a lot of filler to get through. Also? Some actuals would be good- bring in some of the music you're talking about. That background is kinda empty. Stats are good, but too much explanation isn't. Your audience either knows what you're talking about, or it shouldn't be in the broadcast; well, unless you can bring it into bite-sized pieces. (and a side note; Bitzkrieg Bop, not 'pop'.)

Scripting
Pacing
Keep on topic, or at least transition smoothly/logically.
Background sound/something other than just talk.

You may not like the guy, but check out Jesse Thorn and Bullseye. You can do that.

(note: don't copy Jesse- just use some of his techniques)
