As I mentioned yesterday, I did my first live participation in a podcast last night. Well, we al discussed the topic live, but the discussion was recorded and will be made available as a podcast in the not-too-distant future. It was with the fine folks over at SF Signal and it was so much fun. They are all smart and funny. It was great to be able to participate. What’s more, it was nice to actually get to hear the voices of the people whose stuff I read on SF Signal day-in and day-out. Ain’t the Internet grand?
These guys will probably laugh at me when they read this, but I was pretty nervous leading up to this event. I generally don’t have a problem speaking in front of large groups. I’ve done it at work plenty of times, and I’ve done it for other things as well. But get me in a virtual conference call with a bunch of other science fiction fans, writers, bloggers, reviewers, podcasters and I get a little star-struck and nervous. Go figure. It was really a lot of fun and I hope I get to do it again sometime soon.
And of course, when the podcast goes live, I’ll let you know.
