I have decided that for the two year anniversary of Reel Reviews, it is time to tackle one of my all time favorites: Seven Samurai. For a film guy, this is a big deal; to take on one of the all time greatest films is a commitment. I’ll post it on October 17th, the two-year anniversary of my entry into podcasting. Curious how the whole thing started? Here is the first edition of Reel Reviews: Sam Peckinpah’s original, The Getaway. Unlike many, I have kept up every show, including the always embarrassing #1.
Since I was feeling a little nostalgic – here is my first appearance on the Daily Source Code from September 15th 2004. As you might guess, I am asking audio quality questions. [audio:http://mwgblog.com/audio/DSC_MWG_1.mp3]
By the way, anyone want to hear DSC #1? Being early to the podcast game means I have most podcast pioneer’s episode #1. Last week Dave Slusher and I ended up having a great discussion with some folks at the Portable Media Expo explaining the history of podcasting. It is a bit weird to be an authority on the real history of podcasting. I must say, as exciting as it is now, it was also a great time when it was a small community.
Update: OK, so I got delayed. What else is new? I ordered some new gear for the podcast studio and it has not arrived yet. It is something I’d like to use on this episode. Please be patient.
