Today is the one year anniversary of the first episode of the audio version of the Evil Genius Chronicles. I published an episode this morning that I actually did yesterday that has no birthday content whatsoever. I was on the edge of not publishing this one and instead redoing it. The sound was a little off, particularly at the beginning. I have a new Behringer UB802 mixer, and hadn’t noticed that the EQ setting for the high range was all the way down. That led to my original voiceover sounding muffled. Ironic isn’t it, adding better stuff is an initial hit?
I may or may not do another episode today with a little (very little) birthday related content. If it happens tomorrow, I shan’t cry. I was taken a little aback because I thought August 22nd was the day until I checked the records. Thanks to everyone who has been listening all this time, participating on the comment threads, sending me email, buying the stuff packages, supporting the musicians and generally being involved with the EGC community. Forming a community was never a primary goal (and it still isn’t) but I’m delighted that one has sort of formed spontaneously and I think is actually the best, most positive outcome of the whole magilla.
Thanks too to the sponsors. Thanks to iPodderX, who sponsored me for a long time and whose support provided the seed money that kicked off the stuff packages. Thanks to iPod Observer for being the current sponsor and helping out with the expenses. I appreciate it all.
