The beginning of a podcast adventure

It's been great fun of late producing the Australia Desk report for the Airplane Geeks Podcast along with my friend Grant.  Its been a sharp learning curve, and getting the reports down to a short segment for the Geeks has proven to be more of a challenge each week.

We're finding that each recording session produces close to an hour of talk, perhaps half of which is usable for the podcast.  The problem comes when I have to make the decision over what stays in, and what goes out.  I'm quickly coming to the conclusion that a 30 minute show is become quite feasible.  I have wanted to do a podcast of my own for a couple of years now, but didn't think I could do it to any reasonable standard, however, many of the positive comments we've received lately have encouraged me to think that maybe, just maybe, I could do it after all.

Along with Grant, the plans for an Australia Pacific centred aviation podcast are beginning to take shape.  I hope to do a "pilot" episode in the next couple of weeks and see how it goes.

Any suggestions and feedback would be more than welcome as we go along.   We'll keep you posted on developments.

  1. Well, the Airplane Geeks are solidly behind you and Grant on this. Even though we're based in the US, we get a lot of positive comments about the Australia Desk reports, and you guys are doing a fantastic job. It also seems that there are a lot of aviators and aviation enthusiasts down your way so I think the audience is there.

    So best of luck with the project! I'm looking forward to the day when I can subscribe to a podcast from you!

    Best regards.
