Article for consideration
I have been addicted to podcasts for about 3 years now and always wanted to produce my own but I didn’t know how to do it or what subject on which to do it. I have a few passions. Comic Books, Baseball, History, and Axis & Allies. Since the first three are widely covered by some great podcasts, I decided to go with the last one, but how? It occurred to me that all I really had to do was record my friends and I as we play the game every other Sunday. I got a new laptop for Christmas and bought a decent microphone, downloaded a couple free programs for editing and decided to teach myself how to do this. The Dicetruction Podcast is the result.
Every other Sunday, my friends, Ray and Isaac Mann and I play different versions of A&A and have recorded our exploits. I edit them and post them up on my feed site and now I have a podcast.
This show is not for everyone and may in fact not really be for anyone but if you want to kill some time listening to a bunch of drunken fools play A&A, tell (sometimes) funny stories, and roll dice, then give it a listen. Best of all it’s free!
You can listen to it on my blog: http://dicetruction.blogspot.com which also has game summaries, pictures of our painted pieces as well as a link to the podcast feed site http://dicetruction.podbean.com/ where you can download the episodes. We are also on iTunes. Whether you like the podcast or hate it you can also post comments on the blog and let us know what you think, and if you’re on Twitter you can follow us there @Dicetruction where I try to post pictures and round by round action as we play.
We currently have 5 episodes out ranging from 1-2 hours long though I hope to keep most under 1.5 hours sometimes they are a bit longer.
I should let you know that the language is quite vulgar and we do not take ourselves very seriously until the last round when one side smells the blood in the water and we don’t play without copious juice of the barley. This is a game that the three of us love very much and we will continue to produce episodes regardless of audience participation, however, again if you do listen don’t be shy! Let us know what you think, good, or bad at the blog site:
Thanks for listening!
