Today Jerry and I are doing our third pre-production test-recording session for the podcast. In the first recordings, we were basically zero-drafting: not concerning ourselves with final product, just listening for feeling, for rhythm, for a sense of what works and a sense of how our rapport translates to recording.
Today I aim to have some basic production sheets prepared ahead of time. At this point, I know what I want our first half-dozen or so episodes to cover. So today we're going to do pre-production takes on at least two of those and see what we learn.
If all goes well, these will be our final test recordings. After this, I think we'll have learned enough that we'll be ready to move the project into actual production.
Later in the week, I'll share some thoughts about how today went.
