Kitchen Table Netrunner - Podcast


#1

Hey everyone,

My wife and I finally decided our love for Netrunner outweighs our inexperience with creating content, so we’re launching a podcast we’ve been talking about for months - Kitchen Table Netrunner. What better time than now as the game is entering this new phase of life!

Who might want to listen to this? Anyone who wants to talk to other people about Netrunner more than they have the opportunity to, and who is feeling a gap in their soul with all the wonderful existing podcasts winding down, might want to give this a shot. Also people who love Netrunner and aren’t yet great at it, this is a podcast at your level.

I would love to hear any feedback. Most notably, I have basically no idea what I’m doing as far as the audio and hosting side of podcasting, and I’m trying to improve. For example, expect music intros eventually. At the moment our only computer is a Chromebook, which seems like it might be terrible for editing and mastering audio. We’re willing to spend some money to create a better setup, so if any of you have experience that goes beyond what a quick Google search would reveal, I’d love your advice. Hopefully that doesn’t lower the bar on expectations too far.

Happy listening!

Also if anyone can guide me on how to do that cool block link thing that all the good podcasts do, I would seem like less of a scrub.

So the first thing I think I noticed is the white noise in the background that the mic is picking up. I suspect it’s a microphone issue. I don’t know enough about audio or recording equipment to say definitively. :frowning:

Next thing I think about is Editing. You might want to go back through and edit down the pauses or gaps in conversation.

Other than those two things, the audio was fine, surprisingly. It sounds like you’re using one microphone to record with, so getting the same volume from both participants was good.

Little disappointed in the non-competitive viewpoint, pretty noticeable with Watch the World Burn evaluation… Card’s completely nuts against CtM. Planned Assault helps with the 1/deck thing, too. But I mean, it’s called Kitchen Table Netrunner. Competitive content is not expected. :smiley:

Congrats on 12 years of marriage tho :smiley:

Will definitely have a listen. Just one thing I noticed though - the episode title says “Magus Opus” rather than Magnum Opus. Dunno if maybe that’s intentional and will make sense once I listen. :slight_smile:

Love folks who put content out into the world–I actually view it as an incredibly vulnerable and brave thing to do.

Will take a listen and give some thoughts. Having seen other 'casts grow and “find their footing” is always a neat thing to watch and be a part of.

  1. Audio issues, both base quality and editing, are things I’d definitely like to improve. I feel totally confused, not about individual pieces of gear, but about how to create a decent audio ecosystem. I get the vibe that Blue Snowball + MacBook + Garage Band is the next meaningful notch above recording on my phone, but I haven’t owned an Apple computer in 20 years. Advice welcome.

  2. Typo feedback also welcome, that one got past the editor.

  3. As/if we get better, the podcast will be more competitive. This is a goal of mine, as I’d love to have broader appeal (and win more often). I haven’t spent enough time thinking about CtM (though they occasionally haunt my nightmares, and the thread here this week has helped), and while I did see the appeal there I didn’t grasp the card pool enough to think of the Planned Assault synergy overcoming the one per deck issue. Thanks for the criticism, and look forward to us missing other important interactions in the future.

  4. Also people are serious when they say this community is the best. 2018 is a hard time to put content on the internet and have a good time, and this has been really encouraging. Thanks for all the feedback so far!

My spouse has virtually no understanding of Netrunner, other than it causes me to burn food because I try to get in “one more Jnet” while cooking, and that it’s expensive (“was expensive,” I’d argue) but keeps me mostly docile and out of trouble.

Well done for giving it a shot as a couple. I bet you learn a lot about your partner when you sit down after dinner and they go “I’ve always wanted to try Potential Unleashed.”

It wasn’t on Overcast so I downloaded the PodBean app, but I’ll give it a listen. I’m always up for another Netrunner podcast.
