This was a very random idea on Saturday morning, just before a very busy day offline commenced.  “Hey, no-one’s gotten dibs on this week’s podcast.  What could I do … hmm … ah, I know: something with crazy sci-fi sound effects.”  By that evening, I had some support for it … by Sunday morning I had 4 interviewees lined up … and the audio parts for all 6 people was downloaded ready for editing by Monday evening.  It took until Wednesday night to work out how to fit Holst in … and actually, the way that turned out was plain serendipity. 

Though, GOODNESS, do these things take a long time to put together!  28 mins of audio = the larger part of several hours of tinkering about with it.

And SFFaudio are among the first people to hear and comment on it — which is particularly nice, since I gave them a good plug for the lovely work they do in reviewing and promoting our recordings (in amongst many other people’s, of course.)
