I can't believe anybody got the question about what the crowd was cheering in Podcast 9. I still can't figure it out and I know the answer.

Great contest. Flying crows get great mileage.

Bravo for number 12.
Too much editing on Frank's interview though. Why didn't you let his silences

Brian's taken over the interview edits, he's still getting the hang of it. :)

And because someone is a stickler for keeping things tight...

And because we want to pack as much punch as we can into each podcast, and i think most people would agree that the 3 plus minutes of awkwardness on the part of the interviewers/silence on the part of the interviewee is worth an extra song on the podcast, don't you agree?

Heh, guilty as charged. However, I did notice with the program you're using (it's that open source one whose name I can't remember no matter how hard I try, right?) that when you chop something it doesn't smooth it. Which means a lot of clips and stuff. I don't know why they wouldn't have addressed that or added that as an option. I tried to smooth over most of the clicks (the result of a rapid change in level) that I could find but alas.

As for the tightness, it was good in most parts I think, just a few places where sentences were blended together that it was really noticeable. I thought you did a pretty good job in spite of the what-the-bloody-hell-is-it-called program. Audigy. Aud... ACK!

And yes, there are things you definitely want filtered. Like the little singalong we all did...

Audacity is the program. And a lot of the pops and glitches were already there, which i am beginning to suspect happened when the files were transfered, because on my recording of the interview and the one that you edited for the initial Podcast 10 broadcast sound quite different in spots.

And i just am new at this, too. And it is over 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37.77777 Celsius) here and i'm cranky. So, i apologize.

AudACITY! Thank you. That's interesting on the interviews, I wonder if they did accrue some clicks somehow...

I do edit the interviews more than just taking them and clearing silent parts. They get a dosage of compression so we all sound roughly the same volume and a consistent one, and also some FFT noise reduction that is at best hit and miss for that type of noise. So that could also be part of the different sound. But I suppose we could discuss this by email and not bother the poor folks here.

And no need to apologize, you've said nothing wrong. If anything, me saying "he's still getting the hang of it" was rude though not meant to be mean.

Heh heh, you guys are great, airing the dirty podcast details in the Forum. It keeps it real.

But I think you've got it backwards -- you ought to be airing more about the Forum in the podcasts. I've been listening to the podcasts since #1, but only got into the Forum recently (a month or two ago). Reading the Forum religiously, and posting occasionally, has really enhanced my enjoyment of the podcasts, and I think there should be more encouragement for listeners to flock here. As you know, there is so much good information on the Forum, and I think many listeners of the podcasts would take to it like I have. They just don't know it's here.

Maybe I'm full of crap. Maybe you've been plugging the Forum all along, and I just never noticed. If that's the case, well, I'm sorry for the love, I'm sorry for the pain, I'll say I'm sorry, Brian and Dean, again and again.

Thanks for the suggestion Coastline. The reason that i, personally, don't plug the forum too much is that i don't want there to be a feeling of those non-forumers who listen to feel like they are out of the loop (which, duh, they are!). We try to be as inclusive as possible, and i fear that being too forum-centric could turn some listeners off. But don't worry, we still love you.

No worries too, Deaner.

I'm looking forward to some beer and baseball and sleep tonight. Hopefully that'll put me in a better mindset.

As as for airing podcast business on the forum, to paraphrase Banky Edwards, what is the internet for if not slandering others?

Certainly you shouldn't alienate your listeners, but there's a way to tell them there's great information out there without saying they're not part of the club. Then again, I'm just sniping from the sidelines, and couldn't do one-tenth as good a job as you guys do. You guys have done a hell of a job, and get better with every single episode, and many of us are grateful for your blood, sweat and tears -- and time. So I'm shutting up now.

I've noticed little pops before when I was recording with Audacity.

I just found out about this Banky Edwards character this weekend. It somehow makes my nickname seems less original than it once was. :(

A really obscure prize that I suppose you couldn't really arrange to offer would be a soundboard patch at one of these acoustic shows. All it would really take on Frank's side is a call ahead with "we need an open patch on the board for our own use."

Having misread a post by CoF elsewhere, I thought--for a second--that Frank was having the shows recorded himself. That got me daydreaming about a few soundboard recordings emerging from this (heretofore) rare solo acoustic tour. Oh well.

Hey why wouldn't he take his ukulÚlÚ on tour? It's really fine to travel, it's light and solid.
And we had just a "taste" of Frank playing it on the album...

Anyone know who the 2 Nashville guys are that are joining him on this tour? Any guesses?

Tiven said it somewhere. Duane Jarvis and Billy Block I think.
If we had it right, Billy Block is the drummer on If Yr Poison and Dog Sleep (and more), and Duane Jarvis plays the guitar on Raider Man and In The Time of My Ruin. So, good choice I say...

I just burned my first FB.net podcast compilation. Awesome! 22 tracks (just like TOTY by the way), including the Nadine, Coastline and St. Francis demos, and the NJ and SK accents as bonuses. Now I know I'll die a happy man.

To be honest we're behind on it and I think it will be a feat if we get it out in time (aka tomorrow).

Another fine podcasting effort, sirs. And an easy (one-part) trivia question, though you didn't say where to send the answer.

You're right, I've been getting emails, Brian has, and our podcast email address has, but don't worry, they're all valid addresses. Can't believe how many people have got this wrong, though. :P

BTW, Ben was awesome to talk to and had some really cool insights, it's a shame we (Brian) had to shave it down.

Any chance of finding out who won, or is that not to be "revealed" until the next episode? (Great podcast as usual by the way)

I echo this wholeheartedly. It is somewhat of a shame that an hour and a half of great conversation had to be distilled down to 12 minutes.

Lucky No.13!! Great interview with Ben. Any chance of a future Podcast with more of his interview. The 33 1/3 books are excellent and it was great to hear Ben plug "Funhouse." Besides the "Doolittle" book, the one for David Bowie's "Low" is equally excellent and real interesting story of him and Iggy hiding out in Berlin and basically recording 2 albums at once. Great job again you enlightening cats you.

Excellent, excellent, good, nice and wondeful job, fellas. I especially (and usually) appreciate the interview and unreleased gem (the DitS demo). You have never failed to provide a nice--never boring--flow. You both have an obvious knack for this.

A little bit of a question/request/suggestion:

I know it's extremely picky of me, but I would love for you to keep the interview segments less "we're conducting this interview right now, really. No, seriously--we mean it." With this I am referring to stuffing apparently not quite representative post-production questions before answers, as if it went down in that way. I'm obviously being presumptuous here. An example seemed to be when you asked something like "What info about a song smacked you in the face?" This, coupled with the "not quite responding to the question" answer came over as distracting to me. Especially since it appears that you guys did tape it "live" beforehand.

Obviously you have to edit these things and make them flow properly, but would you ever consider approaching the snippets that aren't actually "live" more like a bird's eye view of an interview? You could say something like "In one instance, Ben tells us he was particularly taken aback by Frank's candor" then launch the bit about the #13 Baby story.

Yeah, I know. Super nitpickily critical.

Get me not wrong. The content is always solid. It's always beefy, and descends on the ears like manna.

Peace and Love and Recycle and Act Locally and Jesus and Buddha and Jain the Quain of Laive and all that. OK?

Hmm...interesting suggestion. We will definetely talk about it. For the Ben interview in particular, Ben talked quite a bit - and all of it was good. We didn't re-record any questions, or anything of the sort - we just edited out some of the pauses and whatnot - but the questions and answers are as authentic as good broadcast will allow them to be (does that make sense?). The only time we ever 're-ask' a question is if one of us is particularly stutter-y and/or unintelligable. I know this may sound like bullshit, but there were no re-recordings of questions to suit an answer. Scout's honor.
