The feedback so far has been almost universally appreciative, which is fantastic. That’s the pimping over with, here come the personal comments.

I enjoyed being involved with the production of the first episode particularly as it allowed me to play with audio equipment and editing software, which I really enjoy doing. I hope I don’t get too precious about it in the future, but I like getting it all set up just right and producing a clear recording.

I’m pretty pleased with the end result, although I know it’s not perfect. I need to balance the music level with the speech sections better. I need to ensure we get a higher level recorded in the “studio”. Some edits could have been better, although there’s probably not much more I could do with the stuff recorded on location. There are many in there which aren’t audible at all.

It’s exciting that the whole Ubuntu-UK LoCo can contribute to the show, it will be great to receive content from the wider community. It’ll be interesting to see how much content is forthcoming, but we’ve got lots of ideas for content too. 🙂

It’s been great to watch the team, the four presenters featured on this first show and Schwuk, preparing the website, graphics and back-end. Everyone has done their bit and it’s been great to watch everyone play to their strengths. I am more than happy to leave wordpress tweaking to others if I get to play with audio files. 🙂

Oh, and don’t forget to listen to it:
