For the past 3 weeks or so, I have been involved with a very interesting experiment into the world of podcasting. I decided I wanted to become more intimately acquainted with the local Orlando art scene, and maybe I wanted to have some intelligent discussion too. A good friend of mine, who has taken to calling herself Myla Goldberg on the show, does the show with me, and we call it "You Can't Spell Crapface Without PFA". What does PFA stand for? Well, "if you have to ask, we don't care", but it is the Pretentious Fucks Alliance. We are self-important twenty-something kids with something to say, and we want to get some creative and interesting people on the show, talk about what they do, and have some honest intelligent discussion.
If you are thinking this is your kind of show, you might be right, but you might not. One of the goals of the show is to make it exactly what we want, which could mean we alienate some people in the process. At the present time, we don't have recorded intros, theme music, skype conversations or any of the features that so many podcasts have adopted in the past 18 months. We are just ourselves.
One thing that is a bit different from the TWiTs and Pottercasts of the world is that our show is actually trying to help the positive creative and expressive curve in our community. We are trying to get people excited about local music, film, art and anything else we believe in. Has anyone else done this before? Maybe, but I was never entertained by their offerings. One thing you have to consider - will someone subscribe to it? I certainly hope so. I think we will find our audience.
