COL449: 10 YEARS OLD!?!

In this episode of Cubs Out Loud, the cubs celebrate the tenth anniversary of the podcast. That’s right! In 2008, a group of guys were brought together and COL was born. Since then, the show has had several co-hosts, guests, topics, and a whole lot of fun! As the guys reminiscence on the shows of COL past, learn a little more about the history and what’s in the works for the future. It’s a decade of dubious debauchery.

Getting It Together

As we gradually get everything together to create the Cubs Out Loud Podcast, I thought I’d run you all what we’re doing.

We decided that it would take more equipment and be much more expensive if we tried a recording all in the same place. The show would sound much better if we recorded over Skype using USB headsets. So that was the first purchase.

Tim went on a search the other day and found the
Plantronics .Audio™ 470 USB Headset

and John and I ordered the Plantronics .Audio 400 DSP Foldable PC Headset

Plantronics .Audio 400 DSP Foldable PC Headset

Next, we downloaded Skype and Tim and I started testing it out. I don’t have my headset yet but I did have something to try with it. Well, we’re still working on getting Tim’s working right and I’m sure that John and I will have to do the same thing when we gets ours.

Headsets, Check
Skype, Check
Recording Solution, hmm, after much deliberation I ended up getting Übercaster.

I tried getting Garageband set up to record Skype but I was having too many problems and I had a coupon code for 10% off Übercaster but it expired on 12/31/07 so I had to make a decision. I’m happy with my decision as it’s easy as pie to get the cast recorded through Übercaster. I can’t wait for us all to have our headsets, have a successful Skype conference, and make a successful recording.

The only things I need right now is Album Art (any artists out there?), and opening and closing theme music. Now John’s working on a logo which we’ll be able to use for the Album Art on the cast and we have a Garageband Jingle for the opening and closing theme music for now but I’d prefer some Bear Made Music. As we develop the podcast, we may need some more jingles. I’m thinking about a Picks Segment if someone wants to make something for that. Just let us know.

Wow, that’s a lot of information. Thanks for staying with us and you’ll hear from us soon.
