OK, I just dropped some cash on podcasting equipment. The plan is to be able to both do on-site interviews here, via the phone or in person, plus go on the road to do interviews and such at meaderies, the MeadFest and other places. So, the inagural GM Podcast (barring shipping delays and product issues) will happen at the International Mead Festival.

What I need from y'all is this: what all should we podcast? I'm thinking meadery owners, the awards, maybe the talks, GM'er interviews. Anything else you'd like to see?

Here's what I got:

Dell Latitude 630M Laptop

Travel Kit:
- Shure SM48S-LC Microphone
- Audio-Technica PRO 8HEx Headset Microphone
- Planet Waves Male 1/8" Stereo-Dual 1/4" Female
- Pro Tec Studio Production Carry-All Bag
- American Recorder (ART) XLR Female to 1/4' 1/8'; Male Mono Adapter Nickel
- Olympus DM-10 Digital Voice Recorder

At Home Setup:
* Alesis Multimix 8USB 8 Channel Mixer
* Cakewalk Pyro 2004 MP3 & CD Maker software
* 2 MXL V63M Condenser Studio Microphones
* 2 Musician's Friend Low Profile Die-cast Mic Stands
* 2 - 20' Lo-Z mic cables
* AKG K44 Headphones

So, if you were thinking about getting a copy of the St. Winston's story (you can use your credit card by clicking the button in the right hand column at http://www.gotmead.com/index.php), or buying something in the GM Gear store, now would be good. This girl is *broke-broke-broke*, and I've spent all my paying work getting this set up. If you know a meadery or brew shop that you think would benefit from an ad, banners are only $30/month, and text ads $10/month. I'm down about $2500 here guys, so push' 'em this way!

Vicky - awaiting arrival of the Podcast stuff so I can figure out how to use it
