I thought it was probably about time we did another podcast, so Erin and I did another podcast.

In this podcast we discuss the pros and cons of producing Doctor Who audio drama as a fan project, rather than as part of a licensed company. These include no money (pro!), no money (con!), no money (pro!), no money (con!), no money (pro!), and no Paul McGann (boo).

Also includes a rough clip of episode 6: 'Paths to Victory' by [livejournal.com profile] birdsarecalling

It's been a while, but [livejournal.com profile] radio_sonic is back with another podcast.

[livejournal.com profile] aralias, [livejournal.com profile] vonquixote, and (briefly) [livejournal.com profile] x_los discuss what's been going on in the Radiosonic world, including thoughts on acting, Cybermen, and the episode 5 readthrough. This podcast also comes with a free clip of almost none of the final actors from this scene in a scene from episode 5: Terror/Destiny/Children of the Jayhawks by [livejournal.com profile] neveralarch

Radiosonic Podcast 3: What's Up? Long Time, No See by radiosonic

A few weeks ago [livejournal.com profile] x_los, [livejournal.com profile] vonquixote, [livejournal.com profile] ashteth (aka Jon's girlfriend/Henchman #2 in an episode as yet undisclosed), and I sat down in two different places and watched the original 'Scream of the Shalka' webcasts all the way through. We had thoughts and said them out loud and recorded them, and now if you want to listen to these thoughts they are uploaded to the internet in the form of podcasts.

Each section starts right at the beginning of the episode (with the BBCi logo), and goes on approximately the episode ends. Part 5 goes on for substantially longer than that.

As a disclaimer I'd like to mention that the best part of 'Scream of the Shalka' is its dialogue, which we couldn't really hear. So we focused on the plotting and the animation, which, as you may know, is not the best part of Shalka. Any harping on about slow moving plot or REG eyebrow is done with affection.

Here are the commentary parts:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5
Part 6
They're also on iTunes for download.

You can watch Shalka either at the BBC official website or Dailymotion or YouTube.

The first official recording (rather than the rough readthrough) is done, and goes out to editors some time later this month.

In other news, you can now subscribe to our podcasts on iTunes!

Partly to celebrate this, and partly because I had it knocking around and meant to post it some time, here's another mini-podcast. I couldn't work out how to paste this into the longer 'Writers and Influences' podcast, but it properly belongs there. It's a quick discussion of the Gothic novel, our Doctor Who, and the Gothic novel and Doctor Who in general. Largely conducted by [livejournal.com profile] x_los and [livejournal.com profile] bagheera_san.

Radiosonic Podcast: 2.5 (Influences - the Gothic) by radiosonic

It's time for the second Radiosonic podcast! Chatting in real time about their influences are [livejournal.com profile] aralias, [livejournal.com profile] x_los, [livejournal.com profile] bagheera_san, and [livejournal.com profile] neveralarch, with the help of [livejournal.com profile] bessyboo as technical support, time keeper, and thinker of thoughts. Talking to us from the past or the future are [livejournal.com profile] vonquixote and [livejournal.com profile] birdsarecalling. This podcast is about what influences the Radiosonic writers, in particular: what we stole from Doctor Who and Big Finish (consciously or unconsciously) and what we chose not to steal.

The podcast also contains two rough clips of the first episode to go into production, episode 2: The Shackles of the Wolf. These clips are from the very first readthrough with the actors. The director has yet to issue direction, the pacing is off thanks to Skype's lag and my dodgy cutting, the audio quality is bad, and the sound effects are being read in by the Production Manager. Nevertheless, it seemed a nice thing to put into the podcast since we have these clips, and it should be interesting to see how radically different the scenes sound by the time the episode is actually finished.

N.B. Although we talk about the relative gayness of the writing team and our roots in fanfiction, it is worth noting that there is no explicit Doctor/Master slash in series 1.

Please enjoy the podcast.

What we didn't say in the podcast is that there are more audition pieces up. Check out this post for UK, USA, and Australian accent parts, ranging from major characters in the episode to news reader types.

Also - the production team recruitment post is always open.

In this post you will find the first ever Radiosonic Podcast! It is hosted by me, [livejournal.com profile] aralias (Line Producer, and writer of episodes 2 and 3) and [livejournal.com profile] bessyboo (Production Manager and general organiser of things), and you can find it below.

In this podcast we talk about BIG FINISH who we are, what we're doing, why we're doing it, why Shalka is cool, why Alison is a good companion (though more on this later, I think), BIG FINISH, what the episodes are going to be, how we're going to do them, and how you can get involved if you want to (we want you to). Also, I may talk about Big Finish a bit*.

Anyway - here's the podcast.

* 'Spare Parts' is written by Marc Platt, who also wrote 'Relative Dimensions'. Both are very good.

Although this podcast will become a regular thing, the impetus behind this particular episode was [livejournal.com profile] pod_aware's seventh day challenge.

Podfic as a fan art is still relatively small, even if it's growing quickly. There are positive steps that can be taken to help podfic as a fan art grow. To learn how check out [livejournal.com profile] pod_aware on LJ or DW.
