how long is a podcast?
« on: August 01, 2012, 08:23:30 PM »
i'm fighting with ryan haupt.
he says that my show is about an hour long regularly, sometimes more.
because that's how long the audio file is.

i say that my show is about half an hour long. because that's the amount of time between the music intro and outtro.

who is right?

(keep in mind that he also thinks that it's fine to walk on all fours like an ape instead of bipedally like a gentleman)

Do you not count the extras after the outro? I think you have to count that as part of the show.

booooooo.

i don't have to count them because they aren't necessary.
you don't learn anything from them aside from how much fun we have while we are making the sausages.

So ... isn't part of the show to get the fun across? I mean I wouldn't want to miss the outro and would count it very much part of the show

You guys rock. Ben is quite the fool for thinking you'd turn against me.
I tweet, I tumbl, I read, I drink, and I write.

Not necessarily in that order, though.

Ben, your show is never long enough! the stuff after the outro music is sometimes the best part!

Sorry, Ben!

I think of them more like appendices - the show stands alone without them.  They're the extra bits that were best left out in order to get the concepts across concisely, but you know you're gonna wanna listen, because that's where the fun and the interesting sidetracks are.

I think of the show as being about 25min long - just the bit in between the intro and the outro music.
