Q & A with the guys from Retsutalk
When did you start podcasting?
Why did you start podcasting?
Our fan base from YouTube sent us requests to begin doing a podcast show to supplement our videos and allow us to talk more in-depth on a variety of topics.
What’s your show about?
Our show is focused on the Internet sensation known as “Let’s Play” which fuses video game interactivity by proxy with the personalities, whether informative or humorous, of the people who do them.
In other words, we talk about people who talk over video games. Also, we talk about video games, too. The show is very loosely structured though, and conversations tend to go just about anywhere.
What’s your podcasting set-up? Hardware, software, CMS, etc.
We talk remotely via Skype and each record our audio independently using Audacity. We use Blue Yeti microphones to capture our audio. We then edit/sync the audio files in Audacity and export the final product from there.
How have you promoted your podcast?
Our YouTube channel, Twitter page, and Facebook fan page.
What do you know now that you wish you knew when you started?
We had some positive feedback from our first few episodes since we got to use what we felt were some of our best topics. But after doing over a dozen episodes over a long span of time, it’s easy to unintentionally retread that ground or go into less interesting derails.
Repeating content can be frustrating for listeners who want newer content. So what we’ve learned is that while it’s fun to just go in without a gameplan, it’s really better to stay at least a little organized, focused, and have a feel for what we want to talk about before hitting record.
If any of guys are interested in a great entry video for their channel, check out the first of this four part series where they make fun of the 1992 DOS game Darkseed.
Of course you can also subscribe to their podcast.
