Alright, progress has been made! I have a rudimentary website set up for my new podcast. You can hit it by going to www.thecrashcast.com.
I am hoping to have the first installment ready for your download within a week, or so. It's gonna be a solo-act for a while, as this keeps editing time down and ensures a consistent weekly broadcast.
The progress thus far is:
1. Domain name registered
2. Intro and Lead-out music composed
3. All software obtained
Thanks go out to my little brother, Jonny, for composing some interesting music!
This has really become a family affair! While Jonny (who is just fresh out of high school and now enjoying the challenge of his freshman year of college) is the most accomplished musician in the family, my little brother, Jamie (about to graduate from college), is definitely the artist of this clan. He is working on the digital art that will adorn the site, as well as any promotional items down the line. In keeping with the theme of drawing from my family's resources (and FREE resources, I might add!), my younger brother Ron (also in college) will be helping to administer the web sites. Of my four brothers and one sister, I'm the only one that's never been to college! LOL
I have been kicking around various formats and subjects to cover. Right now (of course this is subject to change) I am expecting to keep the shows on the shorter side. I am wanting to offer as much information as I can to help all of you listeners out with hints and tips, deals I find while scowering the 'net, and answering any questions that you guys can throw at me. Since the PhlatBoyz have ushered in a CNC machine that has got to be one of the greatest things to happen to the RC hobby in recent memory, and the membership of the "PhlatClub" has significantly grown as of late, I am going to try to dedicate one show a month dedicated to this great technology. As the show grows, the PhlatCast episode will be an addition to the weekly installments as a "bonus" episode rather than one of the weekly segments.
If there is anything that you would like to see me cover in the show, please feel free to post here as a 'comment', or as always, you can email me direct at crash.hancockATgmail.com. I want this to be a show that you all look forward to listening to as much as I look forward to making it! I am, by no means, an expert, but I have been playing the RC game for a long time. If I cannot answer your question, I will will find the answer!
I am also planning to suppliment the show with "how to" videos as I go to best demonstrate any techniques I use that you may like to see.
I have another domain registered that will, in the future, replace this blog. I have enjoyed the blogspot experience, but as my skills in creating for the web increase, I plan to construct a site that is more conducive (read flexible) to supporting the show.
Again, thanks to all of you that have written emails urging me to forge ahead in this podcast endeavor. I expected to get a few emails from the RCFC listeners, but nothing could have prepared me for the hundreds I received! If you sent an email and I didn't respond, it's only because there are just so many that I haven't had the time! LOL You guys are awesome!!!
Stay tuned for more updates!
