Today is an exciting day for you all. Today marks the launch of the very first Steveitude podcast. Blog + Podcast = Blogcast. Yes, ladies and gentlemen prepare for The Blogcast of Steveitude.
Episode one features everything you love about the blog minus all that boring reading you usually have to do. Our special musical guests are The Empty Seven. They play us Sunshine, Silhouettes (Blogcast Exclusive) and cover La Roux's 'In For The Kill'. I also talk to them about their influences, songwriting process and answer the question that has been on everyone's lips - 'what is Shane?'. Kerry also talked extensively about her need to pee but we decided to cut that out. In addition there is a reading from Lawrence Stevens' new novel, poetry from Sam T and all the latest news in Steveitude. So what are you waiting for?
Download it now!
Once you're in the link just click on Download file and you're away. It is in MP3 format and is about 50mb. It'll take probably between 10 and 15 minutes to download.
This is very exciting for everyone here at The Fortress as this is a completely new venture for us all so PLEASE tell us what you think of it. We realise that the file is probably too big and on a couple of the skits the sound quality could be better but this is a learning process for us. The download situation isn't great either but that has to do with the size of the thing. These are all things we know for next time. Oh yes, there will be a next time.
The podcast is written, directed and co-produced by me (Steve!). The Empty Seven are made up of Stewie Brown, Shane Buxton, Kerry Fisher, Rhodri 'Hot Rod' Hart and Dan Turner please check them out here. The concept for Breaky Spready Go is from the twisted mind of Oly Le Feuvre. Harass him at your will. Additional voices from Kerry Fisher, Rhodri Hart and Dan Turner. Biggest thanks have to go to Dan again for co-producing and editing. Thanks Dan!
So that's it. Have a listen, tell me what you think via Facebook, e-mail, text or ideally the comments section here. I'm going to go sleep now.
