Dispatches from the Communal Bathroom
« on: 01 June, 2015, 17:38:24 »
A podcast by Sam Bradley and his friend Chris Delamere, always worth a listen, especially as the latest instalment even has to do with kendama:

I actually got around to subscribing to this.
First episode was too rambly, so I skipped to the second (ditto), then to the 5th (the one with kendama). Ah, still a bit rambly, but better. Interesting kendama feature/interview. I've listened to number 6 too now, but with a little bit of skimming forwards here and there. Get your episodes down to sub-45 minutes, and be more aggressive with your editing, guys. I'll give it a few more listens when I have some time...

@SamB
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

Hooray!

I recommend listening to the newer episodes first and only going way back if you want to follow our journey from the start. Everybody's first few episodes suck a bit and we are no exception!

We're improving! This one is a good one I think, one where we started finding our rhythm.

A-ha! Here is where we could go on for hours and hours of "Sam's Theories of Podcasting".
BUT from my perspective our podcast is pretty experimental, we have very few restrictions, sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn't but that's OK because we are independent and not answering to anyone but our listeners and ourselves.

With that said I think my favourite episodes so far are our most and least edited:

Episode 10 - Pizza weekend (recorded over a weekend and heavily edited in order to make any sense)
http://www.communalbathroom.com/episodes/episode-10.shtml
Episode 12 - Unflushed, Unbrushed and Unpumiced (recorded in one go and entirely unedited)
http://www.communalbathroom.com/episodes/episode-12.shtml

It's a very fun and satisfying thing to make and I'm always happy that anyone listens!

ALSO you can send us literally anything (preferably audio) and we will put it on the show:
communalbathroom@gmail.com
BKO 2011 - 2nd, SRC 2011 - 2nd,  SRC 2012 - 2nd, EJC 2012 (unicorns) - 2nd, SRC 2013 - 2nd, BKO 2013 - 3rd - Always the bridesmaid...
