We did a podcast!

Rob and I shared another first today; we recorded the inaugural Adventures With Words podcast.  Rob now has the unenviable job of editing it together to make into something broadcastable, then we’ll release it into the wild of the iTunes Podcast section at some point in the near future.

Here’s Rob pretending to look busy after we’d finished.

Our topic was The Lord of the Rings – my task was to persuade Rob to give it another try after he found the first book a bit on the dull side.  Obviously, I told him the second and third volumes pick up the pace, we discussed some favourite passages, the fact that Tolkein was a discover writer and alluded to the homoerotic undertones of the relationship between Frodo and Sam.

I’m really pleased with how it went. We recorded the audio using Audacity, then Rob’s going to import that into Garage Band so we can bookend it with some of the excellent free-to-use loops, making it sound (in theory) a little more professional.  If you’d like to listen to it when it’s released, you’ll be able to subscribe to it on iTunes, plus you can follow updates from the blog at www.adventureswithwords.com and on Twitter at @wordadventures.
