The Drew and Mike Happy Three-Quarters Hour!

Sunday, November 11, 2007
Like I mentioned near the end of yesterday's entry, there was something that I intended to share with all you fine folks out there reading both my blog and Drew's End of the Bench. To tell you the truth, we'd been talking about this as far back as the NHL Draft, when we met one another for the first time. While only conversing about it every so often, it was still something we'd both been wanting to give a shot.

So, yesterday night, after some rather on-the-fly planning, we came together to watch the Blue Jackets' face the Predators down in Nashville ...

... then podcast!

Some readers may recall several months ago, when I gave solo podcasting a shot. Honestly, although I got some positive comments about it, it just didn't feel right doing something all on my own. There's no one to work with, let alone converse with. The better way to do it, at least for someone like me, is to set up something with someone else, and feed off of one another's comments and dialogue.

When the topic was brought up again sometime during the pre-season, I admit that while at first I was excited, no sooner had we both agreed to get moving on doing a podcast, the Jackets' beat writers of Tom Reed and Aaron Portzline came right out of the blue with their own podcast, Cannon Fodder. I truly felt a little dejected, and actually was bothered by the notion that some people may just assume we were copying them, when in reality this had been in the planning stages since June.

In any event, this was my first ever podcast with anyone else, and I'm pretty sure it was Drew's as well, so go easy on the both of us. This baby clocks in at around 45 minutes, and is about 42 MB in size. I should also mention that due to technical constraints (i.e. my own ignorance), we were forced to record ourselves on our own laptops, and then splice the files together so that they sounded like an actual, back and forth conversation. It still came out well enough, although you'll probably notice that at times, there's somewhere around 0.3 seconds in delay between one of our microphone's picking up the other person talking, and that person actually talking. Forgive me, I'm a simpleton!

Since I lack my own host, I sadly can't just make it a Hotlink, and instead must rely on Megaupload, much like I did before. So simply follow these directions to download, and enjoy:

1) Type in the three letter keycode that appears at the top right, then hit enter.
2) Wait 45 seconds while you are put in que to download.
3) Download, and enjoy.
