    Episode 63 — The Sklar Triplets

    Great job guys! However, we need to talk a little bit about Rugby Football before you start saying that "Australian football" is what Danielle is looking for. Rugby is a worldwide sport, that, currently, right now, at this moment, is having it's world cup. Next weekend, Wales and France, and also New Zealand, three countries that are distinctly not Australia will be in the semi-finals. Australia will also be there. Rugby is an umbrella term for two sports that share some similar rules. These general rules are easy to explain. First off, you cannot advance the ball forward using your hands. So, there is no forward passing, which means that running is much more important. Second, you can kick the ball forward. Third, there are no pads, no headwear other than scrum caps, and all hits are legal except neck hits. There are two codes of Rugby Football. Personally, I'm a Union man, so I will be more informed about that one, so it will go second. So, let's talk League. League is a game of advancement much like American Football. There are six downs, allowing the team to hold possession. At the end of each down, a tackle is made, and 10 meters are given from the point of the tackle to the start of the defense. This is the most football like rule. So, the game is very tv friendly, it encourages the players to look like Adonises and it's a lot of fun to watch. League might be a good way in for you guys, because it is a pretty game, and it's very brutal, but similar to American Football. Union is the most brutal, fun, enjoyable game that has ever existed. The only way to lose possession is for the team to lose the ball. If you can contain the ball, you can keep the play going. The players range the entirety of human size, from tiny little prettyboy backs to brutal hard charging forwards. The game is elegance in motion. It's all skill. There is the addition of contested scrums, which means that from time to time, you have two Lincoln Continentals of human beings shoving each other to gain possession of the ball. It's awesome. So, if you guys want, next Friday, watch Wales v. France on NBC, so you can see some Rugby Football Union played at the highest level. And see if Wales can make it to their first final. Matt

    Audio Questions

    I finally bit the bullet and got a Zoom H4n and two Shure SM48s. Now I just have to create some more content. I use Audacity.

    I thought that groups had potential for comedy. Circles, well, that's just a gift. Comedy Bang Bang Circle Jerk is going to be the name of the circle on there, right?

    Episode 13.5 - Minisode 14

    Through a long ass movie, and script rewrites, wasted talent and green screen fights, No trope shall escape my sight, and let my plot be incredibly trite, the hero dumb and the villain slight, Don't even look, not at Green Lanterns light!

    Episode 24 — Who Are Our Superfans?

    I agree with V. about the "comedy" tag. Secondly, before James Adomian leaves, please get him to do an appearance without the characters, and talk to him about what it takes to make a good character and how his mind works. PLEASE!

    The fourth episode has had one of the most high concept insane moments I have ever seen. You have to watch it, because reading about it would spoil it, but seriously, there is some of the funniest things you will ever see on it.

    Welcome

    I'm Matt, I'm a blogger, a 'just starting out' podcaster, and an English Teacher in Korea. Only one of those pays, guess which one. I've been listening since Patton Oswalt came on for the first time, went back and devoured the archives and have listened ever since.
  9. Also, this is the greatest movie ever.
  10. Dwight Yokum and Chocolate were together. Chocolate is his secretary and girlfriend. When he says he has a girl out on the street, he is talking about Chocolate, who we cut to walking down the street.
  11. Howdy Wolfdenizens! I'm an amateur podcaster who is looking to start his first podcast, and would just like some basic advice. I've got a group of three friends with a common interest, and we have a lot of the content worked out, but the technical side is where I am having some trouble. I was hoping to start a discussion about mics and set ups. Here are my basic questions: 1. What compression do you use? Why? 2. What basic software do you use? 3. What kind of mics do you think are best and how much would you spend on them? I know that there are answers sprinkled throughout the Wolf Den, and I am listening through it, but I was hoping to get responses from both pros and amateurs. Thanks a bunch, Matt PS. When I get my cast up and running and have some episodes, I'm, of course, going to be buying some yourcast space on here.
