Episode 3 of the Schnauzer Logic Podcast Posted... Best Episode EVER! (so far...)

Sonovista, my friends! Episode 3 of the Schnauzer Logic Podcast is online and ready for your ears!

A great show, we laughed ourselves silly... and we hope you will too! All the details to follow, but first some major thanks... Although Schnauzer Logic is produced by folks with broadcast and voice acting experience, sometimes you need a little something 'extra' to make a segment work... When we were at KSCO, we had access to a lot of great voices (announcers and other air personalities), but with a podcast, you're on your own... But the internet changes everything and while searching for voice resources i came across a site for Voice Overs and Production called where some talented folks share ideas, bits, and Their Voices!!! Now for the past few weeks I've had an idea for a Brokeback Schnauzer bit, but wasn't sure how to put it all together... Tuesday night it hit me, so i went into the studio and stayed up util about 1am, and wrote and put together a sweet opening segment... but something wasn't quite right... it was certainly good enough, but missing that "In A World..." voice... so i went over to radiodaddy and posted my take, and a request for some voices... and WOW... two folks came through with killer audio... First, many thanks to Brian Hart of Brian Hart Productions... Brian came through with "the voice", and so its his voice you'll hear in this week's opening audio. But after the show was done, and we came back from dinner, there was a second take from Alan Bainbridge of Vox Junction in the UK, and that was amazing too! So amazing that i felt like i had to produce a trailer using his voice as well, and I'm thinking we'll play it in the coming weeks...

Anyway, as a reader of the Blog, you can hear all three versions, and send us an email (robin[at]schnauzerlogic[dot]com) or post a comment in the blog and let us know which you like best!

1. Brian Hart's Brokeback Schnauzer

2. Alan Bainbridge's Brokeback Schnauzer

3. Robin's Brokeback Schnauzer

and not to put too fine a point on it, but i wrote the copy and was still amazed at how each artist interpreted it for themselves... its not just reading!

OK... on to the show... if you've listened to the first two, you'll find this episode to be the best so far... i give it a solid A (maybe an A- for running a bit long)... and there are two reaons for the improvement... first, the 'newness' has worn off, and we're all getting back into our 'on-air' groove... second, we had the time to sit and do some show prep together before we went into the studio... talking around ideas, and writing down a list of topics and notes means a lot fewer "umm.ummm"s... so if you're doing a podcast, write stuff down!

And because we had notes, we covered a lot of ground... so for those keeping track, this week we discuss the Dick Cheney incident, Parviz's youthful visit to the Mustang Ranch, my apology to Heather Graham (and my promise to watch and report on every one of her movies), the Spotsylvania County, VA massage parlor sting, who would win in a death-cage match between Toto and The Clash, TomKat, AmIdol, MaryMans, TransAmerica (and why everyone keeps asking Robin did she see it and how did she like it!), and much more... Plus, we had another great selection of tunes from where we showcased the following bands:

First Break - Casino66 from Sweden and their song Restarting

Second Break - Lens Lens from Tokyo, Japan and their song Flower of Fence

Third Break - Ray O'Hara from Austin Texas and his song Hole in my Pocket

Fourth Break - Ashley Nelson from Boston Massachusetts and her song Radio

And there you go!

Next week, John DeKoven plays Win John DeKoven's Money, and we'll get to those guys from Modesto (promise!)

But until then...

Show Up
Pay Attention
Tell The Truth
And Don't Be Attached To The Outcome
