Eleven Dubcast: The Wizard

By Luke Zimmermann on September 15, 2011 at 12:00 pm

The theme of this party's the industrial age and we came in dressed as a train wreck. No seriously, it isn't an online weblog iPodbroadcast without a horrible, crippling series of laughably (somewhat) embarrassing technical difficulties. We reserved today to have all of our challenges and tribulations in the year plus of doing this bad boy served on a silver platter.

First things first, our fearless cohost one Johnny Ginter suffered at the hands of AEP arbitrarily electing to cut his power 2 hours before recording just because they could. This resulted in him being crammed in his car, with a cigarette lighter phone charger just keeping him barely afloat and one half of our usual podcast equation tempered if not for a bit. The other? Well… Heh, the digital mixing program we usually use to make online calls interact with our fancy schmancy mics and ultimately wind up in the recording program on different tracks so we can make the whole thing happen? It chose to fatal error out when no one was paying attention. HA HA! TECHNOLOGY!

The end result is what you hear today. If you make it through the whole damn thing, well, you're an 11W Dubcast super hero and I will personally serve you an adult beverage (legal age permitting) at Eat Too Brutus.

For the show itself? We valiantly fight against post Toledo stress disorder in rehashing that game as well as discuss the HERP DERP HERP DERP that was Notre Dame-Michigan (plus a few other games that caught our attention). Our guest this week, bless her heart, was the venerable Janie Campbell of NBC Miami. She talks about Jacory Harris' mind state going into the big contest, a few potential playmakers for the Canes, her (and Canes fans everywhere)'s feelings on Al Golden, and whether there's any real *shiver* "swag" left in the U. Lastly we lay out the early parameters for what ultimately turns out to be quite the friendly wager.

Ordinarily pre-prep, recording, and editing these bad boys is about a 3 hours process. This took 5, yet sounds 1.5 times (at least) worst! If you're still brave enough to endure a sonic landscape where sometimes it sounds like I'm yelling, sometimes the other two folks can't be heard, and 100% of the experience is suboptimal, click play underneath. Right click save as here to download if that helps get our low-fi explosion into your ear drums faster. You can always also check us out on the iTunes store as well.
