Media for Shows

Bumper Show One

Choice One

Choice Two


No clue. Thinking like an hour? Is that too long?

Maybe 3 halves Car Talk style.

  • Conversation with a poet
  • Have a theme, read some of our poems
  • Share some poets we are reading

Go with the #Walkmyworld style of a poet

  • Organize show around a particular poet
  • Read some of their poems
  • Share anything we wrote similar

Notes on Set up

First Show

  • got keys from grant potter
  • uploaded all prereorded poems as a track

screenshot of audio tracks being added

  • using audio hijack for livestream

Audio Hijack did not work. First I tried to interrupt someone's stream. Misread timezones. I was trying tp be ready on time. Learned you should buffer a live show with a block of time and have tracks or something scheduled to play.

Second Show

  • Still messed up my recording.
  • Kevin's voice was light
  • I forgot to add the system audio to record on OBS for part of the show
  • Split Kevin into a track and boosted audio
  • Was not live
  • I could not get streaming working

Third Show

  • Show changed from documentary poetry to “Can images rhyme”
  • Will not be live
  • Recorded with Sarah
  • Kevin and Sheri sent in audio responses to four poems
  • I need to learn more about editing garage band.
    • I should have listened through each persons clipped. Then listen again and then spliced each individual into an overarching art
    • I again messed up recording with Sarah. I recorded system audio but there seems to be a fade in and out to each time Sarah talked. I recorded using screencastomatic and then exported the audio clip only.
    • Next time each person will be asked to also record their mic locally and then upload the file to the wiki,.
    • I thought I had the show edited once but all my clips got out of order and the linear arrangement got messed up. This made me go through the entire show. I heard one hiccup where I used the same clipped twice. I need to learn how to add space in a track and have all other tracks shift with it.
  • The poem readings feel dry. I miss our back and fourth. If another show has to be four separate prerecorded sessions I am going to ask everyone to post audio responses to each other's poem a week ahead of time.
