  1. This want to correct something I said during this side-pod. I said that Red Dead Redemption is based off Gran Turismo 4 engine. I meant to say Grand Theft Auto 4.

    I always get those two mixed up!

  2. You guys are doing a very good job on both pod casts. I would like to give yu guys a big pat on the back for all the work you are doing. THANKS GUYS……

  3. This is purely constructive, I mean no offence but I’m finding it hard to listen to the podcasts (both Full Circle and the side-pod) because it sounds like it’s being read from a script. I don’t know if it is the case that you are reading word-for-word from a script or not but I think it needs to sound more natural.

    I really don’t want to stop listening but at the moment, I really can’t, sorry!

    The content, style etc is great (not fussed about the silly deep voice at the beginning of each segment though!)

  4. Scott, I am very surprised at your comment.

    I can 100% confirm that the main podcast is not produced using a script. Only a few show notes show we know what we need to talk about. We dont prep our debates/discussions. If anything, you can say our show is abit of mess than scripted. The uncut version is very poor. Thanks to the work of Robin, its a listen-able show.

  5. Scott: you really wouldn’t listen to the uncut versions of either show! How you think any of our discussions contain coherent thought, much less a script is beyond me…

    My Side-Pod pieces are from more structured show-notes which I edit down sometimes for blog-posts. When I get the time to record one topic solo, I can actually string a coherent sentence together! Side-pod #2, I didn’t have time to edit the news, you got the best edits of me rushing the fence with least faults.

    The only thing that is accurately scripted is Editing the Podcast. I ain’t doing that ‘off the cuff.’

    If I had Steve Jobs or Mark Shuttleworth’s presentation skills I would be doing more than the odd Podcast… RC

  6. Hi guys, Just want to say i really enjoy your podcasts, Started listen about 2 weeks ago, and now i almost have listen to every episode, from last to first heh, keep up the good work,
    Take care

  7. I just found you guys a couple of weeks ago as well. Great stuff, I’m working my way through back catalog of both the magazines and pod-casts.
    Keep up the good work 🙂
