The 6.5 Questions
1. How long have you been podcasting?
We have been podcasting since September of last year. In reality I think we started earlier, but neither of us are web or internet savvy so we basically had no idea how to get our show out there. Thanks (ironically) to sites like Podcastalley, we were able to learn through the resources available on that site.
2. How many shows have you done?
To date we have done 16 shows. We tried doing 2 shows per week, but that didn't actually work out for us. We wanted to make our podcast more "digestible" for the listeners who prefer to listen to the entire show in one sitting, but it ended up being two 1 hour shows per week rather than the 2 half hour shows we had hoped for. We are also releasing enhanced versions of our Podcast which has proven to be very popular.
3. How has your quality/performance changed since your first show?
Ultimately I think the quality remains the same. Initially I figured i wouldn't use a pop filter, but later decided that rolling off the bass wasn't enough. So if anything, thats the only thing thats changed concerning the audio quality. As for the performance, the show has changed greatly from episode 1 to episode 2. This is primarily due to the fact that on show 2, I gots me a co-host. I like having her there because the dynamic between the two of us makes the show much more entertaining. As time went on, we both became more comfortable with the format of the show and therefore sounded more at ease.
4. What podcasts do you listen to and which are your favorites?
We enjoy a wide variety of podcasts. Some off the top of my head are: 808Talk, HawaiiUP, AudioMidi.com, and any music podcast that brings new music to the table. I personally enjoy listening to the new type of comedy that was previously unavailable on conventional radio, some of which include: Nobody Likes Onions, the RBPC show, and Keith and the Girl. Of course I cannot make a list complete without listing Adam Curry's podcasts. I really like the fact that podcasting gives a voice to musicians who previously were silenced by the RIAA. Nothing against The Majors, but it's nice to hear what else is out there as far as music is concerned.
5. Tell us about your show and who should be listening to it?
Of course people from Hawaii should listen to our show, but as time goes on we seem to be reaching a much larger audience. It seems difficult to pinpoint demographic when it comes to podcasting. The DoctorTrey.com show seems to have no problem crossing the Pacific Ocean to reach mainland listeners. Most of our listeners on the Mainland seem to listen on the bus and on the subways, so I would like to send out an open invitation to all bus and subway riders to check out our show!
6. What is your background (especially if relevant to your podcast)?
Jroq is actually a musician. She sings and plays drums with a group called Kanalo. She also released a solo CD called Jroq Vs. Dr. Trey back in 2004. That cd produced by myself won the Hawai'i music awards R & B album of the year. I am by trade a music producer/engineer. I own and run a recording studio called The Doctor's Office. A few years back, I was named "Producer of the Year" by the Hawai'i Music Awards, and around that time Berkleemusic.com got me featured in Mix magazine. Incidentally, for all the new podcast producers out there, Berkleemusic.com is a great way to learn about the basics of recording which is something that can greatly enhance the quality of your podcasts. All the background music, theme song etc. was created in house, and it's actually a service that we are preparing to offer other podcasters.
6.5 Is there anything else your listeners should know about you, your show, etc?
The reason that we podcast is because we love music. In fact our regular guest hosts are musicians as well. Tiki, plays with the musical group Milo Shade and Mailani is from a group called Keahiwai.
