Awkward Compliment

Postby Lucre » Thu Dec 18, 2014 12:50 am

I love your readings guys. You blow the librivox recordings out of the water and even give some of the classic audiobook readings a run for their money. When I downloaded the first episode I thought it was gonna be like geekly book club but I was surprised by how willing I was to listen to a story I had heard before. I listen to a lot of audio fiction and you guys have the knack. Consider submitting some of this stuff to librivox!

If anyone else here listens to a lot of audiobooks or anything I'd also love recommendations!
It's just a show... I should really just relax.

I have listened to one audio book, aside from Teddy Rubskin back in the day, Ready Player One. I recommend it if you like Will Wheaton's voice.

If you're looking for a good story, the podcast "We're Alive: A Story of Survival" was, for me, the audio equivalent of a page-turner. The first story line has concluded, but the creators are working on more short stories within that universe.

Another podcast audio drama I'm listening to now is "The Leviathan Chronicles." It's a bit more fantastical as sci-fi goes and not as well written or produced as We're Alive or even Cthulhu and Friends, so it's a bit harder to listen to in bulk.

Other audiobooks I've listened to that were well-read include John Scalzi's "Old Man's War" series, A Song of Ice and Fire, and Jar-Jar Martin's story compilation-cum-biography Dreamsongs.

Other than that I tend to listen to a lot of podcasts: All the Geekly shows, a couple other actual-plays like Crit Juice, science podcasts like Skeptics' Guide to the Universe and StarTalk, Welcome to Night Vale, several Tested.com shows like "Still Untitled: The Adam Savage Project..."

Yeah, I put a lot of stuff in my ear holes. That's what a quiet solo 2nd shift will do to you. And now that my phone can play things at 1.5-2x, I'm thinking of skimming back through Ice and Fire again.

Did you mean Teddy Ruxpin? "Teddy Rubskin" sounds like a knockoff that was not meant for children. :o

Unfortunately you are correct it's a typo. I'm sure I'd have a whole different outlook on life if it wasn't.

A Warning about releasing your material on librivox. All librivox material is released under public domain, and their material is frequently snatched up by audible, who in turn sell the readings for profit.

Yeah I've been researching copyrights laws and creative commons because I want to start a sci-fi or shadowrun podcast with a 80s movie soundtrack to it.

I'm mainly looking to edit and produce a podcast. Would like to play in it, but that would take time from editing. Would be cool to get a team of editors to work on a podcast or two. I have about 5 hours at night of free time.
