My listeners will know that I wanted to record something at Boardgamegeek.con, and I finally got that chance in the final hours of the event: an interview with Aldie and Derk about the convention itself. Aldie had agreed to it as early as Friday, but those guys were just so busy throughout the weekend that we didn't get an opportunity until the very end. They were pretty fried, but probably pretty satisfied, too.
To have three voices on my podcast was a new technological development, and it turned out to require no more than an extension of my existing low-ball recording equipment. Remember how I just connect a $15 PC headset to my laptop's audio-in jack to record . . . and for the second voice I only need a $3 splitter and second audio headset? Well, what do you think I did for the third voice? Another splitter and headset. That's right, a splitter into a splitter. No mixer required. What do you think of the audio?
This is the first of a couple shows I'm doing on the con. The second will be my own impressions of the games I played, what I thought of the convention itself, etc.
