Okay, I have a better idea of what this can be now, and its production is imminent. I got a mic, and I'll be recording some kind of intro segment tonight. After that is where you all come in.
 
Each episode will have a broad theme, which will be approached in a number of different ways. If you want to record a solo segment relating to it, send it to me and I'll edit it in. If you want to take part in the group discussion relating to the theme, we'll each agree on a good time and get on skype. I'll record the conversation, edit a bit for dead air and intercut whatever additional segments there are at appropriate moments. There will be other bits and pieces, but this will be the format for this episode at the very least.
 
 
 
 
So here is the theme of episode 1: Your childhood in a glass box. Childhood is over. For some of us that has been true for a while, and for others it is something we are only just realising. What do you miss about it? Do you feel like an adult? Were there any moments that the contrast became especially clear? What do you think about getting older, and what is important to you moving forward? Tell stories about your happiest childhood memories, or about the movies and things that take you back to it. Were you a brat? How often do you feel like you are still a child? Do you wish you were?
 
I think you probably see what I'm getting at.
 
I'm posting this here now to give the people who want to contribute a chance to mull it over a little before we set up a skype convo. I am going to do a few segments/skits that do something funny with the idea, along with my intro and outro bit. I hope this theme gets some of you interested, I think it is a good one to start off with. A lot of us grew up around here, and have changed plenty. It might be good to start off from the perspective of leaving certain things behind and moving onto the new.
 
I want to have this skype conversation by this coming weekend at the latest. It may be difficult to get everyone who wants to be in on it at the same time, so if say 3 of us are available at one time and a different 3 at another, we can do two different conversations and they will both be included. The wider the variety of voices in these parts, the better.

I figure people aren't responding to this cos they read the other topic already but I hope this will still be seen:
 
Who is open on friday to do a skype chat? We can work out times after I get an idea if Friday is a good day. If not, then saturday, and if not, then sunday, but I'll start with fridaY. SO????

this might sound weird but i think i'm gonna ban this right from the start. if you aren't talking you aren't in the chat, and you can get each ep as they come out.
 
okay so tenatively:
 
me
dday
dada
esiann
jmickle
 
+others who are still maybes or haven't replied yet. that isn't a bad group right there, though. a weird one for sure but i think it's a good start. mkk is up for it but i don't have a confirm on the time from her, and i'll see if i can rustle up any of the curmudgeons.

Sorry, guess I wasn't available today after all. But I guess you're doing it saturday anyway? When you give a time make sure to include a timezone. I won't be available most of saturday though (sunday is better) but don't bother waiting for me, I'll just join in on the next episode.
