PotterCast 213: Look At Us Now

Posted by: Edward
January 18, 2010, 03:18 PM

The PotterCast 213th episode of PotterCast, our Harry Potter podcast, is now online for your audible (and now visual) enjoyment.  This week, the PotterCasters are excited to bring you a new feature: Video of the LiveStream recording of PotterCast.  Available on the iTunes feed, and as a direct download, this experimental feature lets you see the video from the LiveStream recordings of the show.  As always, this episode starts off with the latest Potter news, including the "Very Potter Sequel" announcement, JKR as the Scotswoman of the Decade, a new LEGO Harry Potter trailer, the Leakies winners, and much more.  Next, Potter Pundits returns with a segment on your choice of a character-centric segment, discussing the always intriging character of Luna Lovegood.  Following the Pundits, the Melissa, John, and Frak return with a new Bit-by-Bit, covering the first half of Chapter 23 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  Finally, the drums bring the show to a close, with more on the LiveStream recordings, three questions from the audience, and much more!

As a reminder, the LeakyCon DVD, which will be available to pre-order soon, will also include all wizard rock performances from our conference.  If you like live wizard rock, be sure to reserve your copy of the upcoming LeakyCon Live Album of the wizard rock live shows at our LeakyCon 2009 conference.  To listen, just hit the "Play" button on the right side of the page (->), or use iTunes, or direct download.

Cool! Looking forward to the Pundits; Luna is such a great character. Also like the bit by bit segments.

like others have stated. The audio is split. At first I thought something was wrong cause I typically only were the left earbud and could only hear John and Frak. The split is a nice effect but I would suggest giving it a percentage like 30/70 and 70/30.
Good podcast and I really enjoy the addition of the punduits.

As others have stated, the sound panning is quite annoying in my opinion. I’m used to hearing spoken voice in mono usually, or that the panning is slightly more centered and not as extreme in this case. I would at least have the voice bleed over a bit to the other headphone (Mel’s voice from the right spills out in the left too, and the vice versa with Frak and John).
