The 6.5 Questions
1. How long have you been podcasting?
We officially launched in January 2005 with our interview with Spoken Word "icon" Henry Rollins and haven't looked back. Before podcasting was podcasting we had many audio interviews which we posted to the site. Podcasting has enabled us to bring this to the next level and make it the foundation for a show.
2. How many shows have you done?
Around 30 shows. A mix of interviews, 'talk radio' style shows, updates, and reports from places like Sundance.
3. How has your quality/performance changed since your first show?
Absolutely. When we first started off I was doing everything with a USB mic which I think cost all of $20. After things got rolling we made the investment in a nice mic and mixer and a speaker phone which gave a real clear and natural voice. We've since also invested in a set up for podcasting when we're on the road (Iriver + squid audio).
4. What podcasts do you listen to and which are your favorites?
Viva Podcast - Greg and Lisa are fantastic
The Bitterest Pill - Dan Klas is extremely entertaining
Croncast - Betsy and Kris always entertain
The Chris Pirillo Show - Chris and Jake always seem to be asking the right questions to the right people
Sex Geeks - Rob and Lindsay have some of the smartest discussions about sex I've ever heard
Reel Reviews - Because Michael Geoghegan was the guy who helped us get off our butts and start podcasting
5. Tell us about your show and who should be listening to it?
DVD Talk Radio features a collection of: Interviews with Actors, Directors, and other DVD related luminaries; regular segments covering aspects of the DVD universe; and special live broadcasts from DVD events and film festivals with a "hype-free" look at movies and the people who make them. Anyone who loves movies and hearing people talk intelligently about them should listen to DVD Talk Radio.
6. What is your background (especially if relevant to your podcast)?
Aside from my formal education in Film, I've run the largest online DVD site for the past six years. My goal with our site and podcast has always been to connect people with good film, especially ones which can get lost in the shuffle or overlooked. I am an avid movie viewer, a fan of cinema, but not the kind of fan who quotes every line from my favorite movie.
6.5 Is there anything else your listeners should know about you, your show, etc?
We take our listener feedback extremely seriously. We're always looking for suggestions on who we should be interviewing, the kinds of topics people would like to hear and what things we should add. Also we promise not to waste your time. Our goal isn't to show you what we know, but to help you find out the things you'd like to check out on DVD.
