The SG Show #17 - Seasons

Listen to the latest show.


Steve's heading out on a business trip for a few weeks and Sam's back to school, so we're trying to tie up our unfinished business in this episode.

Note: Helloo Denmark!

Here are some links to things discussed in the show:

The comics Sam referred to:

Foxtrot
Baby Blues
Garfield

The Internet is a great source of research for our quiz questions, but be careful. You can't believe everything you always read on the computer. Make sure you do LOTS of research and check the sources of your material.

Facts About Sherlock Holmes
Why is it that when its winter in the United States, it's summer in Australia?
Do dogs age seven years for each year of human life?


Lastly, here are links to equipment we use to record the Podcast. We definitely need our friends from Podsqod to give us some lessons in making this production sound better for you!

Recorder:

Sony Minidisc recorder. Note: Steve records directly into his computer at work using an M-Audio duo USB interface and it works great!

Microphones:

Steve: Electrovoice RE-20. Kind of expensive, but the sound quality is worth it. You should definitely get the shockmount for this which will quiet any desk-pounding you may do during the show.

Sam: DT290-80 headset mic. It's over $100, but sounds good (when the wearer is not overly figity).

Occasionally, we use a mixer, a cheap, but good Behringer, as recommended by our friends at Whole Wheat Radio.

And then for editing we use both Sony's Sound Forge and Adobe Audition 1.5. Sound Forge doesn't handle multiple tracks, like when you're trying to fade in music, so that's mostly what we use Audition for.

We're looking for a good compressor/limiter to help keep the dog/baby/telephone sounds out of the background, and something that will keep the recordings not as "noisy." If you have any suggestions, please let us know! We want to sound good for you!
