A sound which reverberates in my ears these days. It’s been three weeks since ‘Movie Time’ started on G Caffè. The other day I saw a young girl listening to the G Caffè podcast on her phone. I have to tell you it made me really happy to see that.
Movies and I have a special connection. I don’t know how this started but since it has, I have fallen in love with podcasting, movies releases and reviews. When I did the 1st Episode on the 17th of May – I was happy as a kid to see it go online on SoundCloud. Though to be frank I sort of did not like hearing my own voice on record… have never liked it somehow on tape … else I simply love it.
Well I must tell you what all happens while I record. Before I start, I give instructions to one and all that I am recording and absolute silence should be maintained but glitches do happen. Just when I have done the perfect recording and as I finish, someone will walk in and I need to do it all over again. If I manage that then I forget to save it and need to do it again. And yes just when I’m recording, the doggie MUST bark the loudest … and the horns and loudspeakers must honk and play. Phew…
As I did my 2nd episode on 24th of May, I had learnt some tricks of the trade and I started involving people around me, so now they all know how to maintain silence during podcasting. [Hear the 2nd one on SoundCloud.]
The 3rd episode went on air on the 31st of May and was hilarious as I had to bribe one and all and give the doggies a bone each so I could record.
All said and done it is a journey I’m so enjoying and learning everyday. The next episode comes this day so let me write about it as I have a sore throat and though I know my voice would be sexy but it would be very dangerous in case you guys fall in love with me. So the 4th episode of 7th June for you my dear gcaffians:
