So I figured I'd grace you all with yet another CN radio talk show from someone who probably enjoys this game a little too much (me). The format of my show is very simple. I'm doing it a lot like a real world political talk radio show - that is, I get on the air for an hour, spout my opinion on different matters, have guests and callers and play some music in between segments. I did a trial run of the show tonight, in which I discussed the CSN-DT debacle and all the stuff associated with it. A bunch of people enjoyed it and I really liked hearing myself talk. It's called "Magnet's Soapbox" and I'm going to do it every Tuesday night at 11 PM CN server time (it should last an hour or so, but if it crosses over update, I'd put on some music from 11:59 until at least 12:15 server time during wars). For those who are interested, you can find it at this link. Sorry that I don't have my own SHOUTcast server, but I'm a college student and whatever money I have isn't going towards this. So if you're interested in listening, you'll have to install the Windows Media Player for Firefox plugin. It's pretty handy anyway.
If anyone (preferably AirMe or bros or someone else who has done a show like this) is willing to be very nice and help me figure out how to do callers and guests with Skype or Ventrilo, as well as recording the show for later listening, I'd be very very grateful. As far as those guests go, if you're interested in being one, leave a comment here talking about your perspective on current events and why you can offer something interesting and new to the program that people would enjoy. The way callers are going to work is pretty simple, I think: I'll have someone in the IRC channel (it's currently being run out of #DT, but I'll register my own channel when I feel like it and post it here) for you to query and he/she will determine if you have something of worth to add to what is being discussed (you don't have to agree with me, I like debates), then I'll connect you during a music break and we'll talk for a few, then I'll disconnect you.
I'm going to try to be a bit different from other shows by just having it explicitly my own IC opinion and avoiding OOC-style analysis, there are people out there who already do it and they do it better than me, so hopefully people enjoy either agreeing with me or enjoy hating the way I think. I also don't feel the need to come across as aloof, so I won't be avoiding getting mud on my boots and blatantly insulting those who I feel deserve insulting and calling those out who I feel deserve calling out. Pretty much, I want this to be a fun hour of distraction from what's becoming a pretty difficult semester for me and a good time for anyone who decides to listen to me yap about whatever I yap about.
Hope you guys listen, and if you want to talk about it on IRC, you can find me in #DT as either Maghammad[DT] or MaGneT[DT]. Don't hesitate to query or PM me
I've been approached by a few people who can't get the link to work - that's because it's for live shows only. I'm not live at the moment and I didn't record the last show
Also, IRC channel is #TheSoapBox
