Radio Rothingham by TheArtrix Radio Rothingham by TheArtrix
Listen to Radio Rothingham, the new podcast featuring =Czarine-the-Restless and yours truly. Please ignore the rather undressed WordPress layout, as I will dress it up with a custom header and what have you.

This is intended as the ablum art for the episodes on iTunes and the MP3 itself. I wanted the capture the depressing tone of Rothingham in this, which eliminates the generic "have 'tude" grin that is used quite too much.

So what is Radio Rothingham about, you ask? To be honest, we're not exactly sure, but it is supposed to be a comedy podcast themed around the Rothingham universe, including commercial breaks for typical Rothingham products. So far, we mostly talk about silly anecdotes and popular culture and what have you. Give it a listen and judge for yourself.

This is also available as a variety of print products. Want a Radio Rothingham coffee mug? Sure, why not!

Don't listen to him; we're not German. <_<

And also, we did not record episode 3. I was a bit too busy and I still am. Next weekend I won't be able to record it, simply because I have to play 2 concerts.

I play in an orchestra that's going to perform twice next weekend, each of those performances beingcompletely different, on different stages. So we have to practice during the day and play at night.

@Arjen: Me be sorry, mon... :(

For now, I'm going to focus on me and Czarine, as we're the main hosts, but I'm sure we can use co-hosts down the line, recorded over Skype or in person in the "studio".

Not bad for a first-time broadcast
Adorably awkward, but I liked it

I haven't seen Symbionic Titan, but it looks good.
What do you think about Adventure Time by the way.

Song suggestion: In the Garden of Eden by Iron Butterfly
I know I'm late

I'm looking forward for the next one
Are they all going to be like this, or is there going to be some more in-universe stuff?

Good luck with the project.

Also, awesome picture!

The awkwardness should disparate as we both gain more experience, as I noticed with podcasts I did in the past, and for a first podcast, it still went rather smoothly.

I've seen an episode of Adventure Time, didn't like it as much as the pilot. Then I sort of lost track of it. On the other hand, I really liked Regular Show. The voice acting is excellent, with some nice comedic timing and odd-but-relate-able character designs.

We already try to make it in-universe as we refer to credits and zones/sectors opposed to any real-life currencies or locations (even though it's impossible to avoid both). I think we might use the Rothingham universe to convey anecdotes that never happened and that are too absurd or too outrageous to have happened in real life.

If you're familiar with podcasts and what have you, you should be able to subscribe to it so that you receive episodes automatically. Not sure if it works with iTunes yet, I think =Czarine-the-Restless has to register it first.

Yes, ironically your Skype conversation during today's live-streaming went really well.

Adventure Time is currently my favourite US cartoon.
I guess the fact that the characters personalities had to be expanded for the series needs may have changed the dynamics from the way you preferred it.

While I have only seen few Regular Show episodes, I enjoy it immensely.

Yes, but in the first pod-cast it was still more of a view of the creator.
Not saying that it's a bad thing.

I don't have iTunes or any other services like that, I only listen to pod-casts on the PC when opportunity shows itself.
Still, thanks for the suggestion.

And sorry for replying this late, I've been working on a project most of the day.

It's typical, unrecorded conversations are usually better (or not), perhaps because we're not time constrained and we don't have to force ourselves into subjects. Then again, most comedy podcasts I listen to have live after-shows that they claim to be better too, so I guess it's an universal thing.

As for the whole in-universe thing. It's not easy to pull it off convincingly, and it's more a garnishing than the main course. The Rothingham universe is such a convenient theme to give to the podcast, especially since it really helps to visualize it, as in, instead it's just a show of two dudes talking, you now have this whole franchise to back it up. Anyways, I should put those words into practice and mod the Wordpress site so that it looks more Rothingham-ish.

Yes, being natural definitely helps things

I understand, and it's a nice way of promotion (alto people have to already know you, but still)

When I look at your face I can't help but hear that one raspy-voiced movie announcer... "He drew you pictures. [*scratchy, chaotic image montage*] He filmed a Livestream [*more chaos*] Now...he's on the radio...and he's OUT [*montage*] FOR [*montage*] REVENGE.

[*electric guitar riffs and explosions*]

"Radio Rothingham. Rated R."

Hehe, we did collaborate on making an epic intro... It has explosions, breaking glass, weird noises and Arjen's synthesized voice and whatnot. :P
