Nah seemed episode related so knock yourself out. Clearly we can't cover everything in 1 episode. I don't know everyone's history, there's sometimes a lot to cover, and it might just not come up during the conversation. So asking questions and giving answers after the episode is to be expected and welcomed!

It's sort of like this recent episode. We didn't really cover enough about idontknow the first run through so I needed a second interview to get enough content to really fill an episode. That's not something I had done before and didn't know if I should considering I didn't give the previous guests that same option. But this is all a new thing. I'm not some experienced professional talk show host and there's no studio. So it's all a work in progress that I hope to get some fun out of and I hope other people have fun with it too.

Wow, stunning story. Loved the bit about giving it out on burnt CDs. It's a familiar story too. The people who actually finish large games either have a lot of free time (unemployment) and motivation (with some unusual reasons), or are very persistent over a long time. (Maybe that's a decent way to pick a guest: someone who's been working on a game for many years.) Losing track of time up till 6am also sounds very familiar! I suggest that the deadline you gave yourself was a pretty important part of remaining so focused. And focus creates motivation too, via reward. Good luck finding other rewarding projects.

When you said your "own podcast", you mean your episode in this podcast? I've forgotten what was said since it was about a month ago that I listened to the whole thing, though I did refresh myself. I'd thought Stone Wings was barely mentioned.

So far, game design is the most engaging, time sucking project I've found. But the passion comes in waves. As for my own podcast, I do one where I talk about songs I've written and recorded. It might be interesting to people who want to live the "artist life" or want to write and record over 50 songs a year every year.

Wow, the PJbebi lore goes deep... really deep. I hadn't heard of an autobiographical podcast before. I'm finding it surprisingly entertaining to listen to these stories interspersed with music, even, vaguely, the technical discussion I can't follow or the lyrics I can't make out.

Going with bullet-point style "questions" ahead of time was absolutely a good idea. Letting the guest mull over their answers a bit before they respond leads to some much more thoughtful back and forth. Also loving the musical interludes by Ravan!

Tried to listen to the most recent podcast but the music was just about painfully loud compared to the voices (with headphones anyway, but I don't really listen to anything without headphones.)

Turned the volume down during the first long stretch of music, back up when talking started, and I just gave up when the ear murdering loud music came back again. Music was good, just too much louder than voice.

I don't think I had this problem with previous ones.

Chiptune music is often like that. You might want to do more than just lower the volume on the music track, like apply a compressor without any make-up gain. I've found that even at low volumes, chiptune can feel grating.

Finally got time to listen to the latest episode. Sword, your interview was enjoyable to listen to

Ravan, I loved your VERY LOUD music. I was listening while doing laundry, and I had to turn the volume up to max to hear the voices, then when a musical interlude would come on, the floor would rumble, and my kid would look around in confusion like we were having an 8-bit earthquake

I'm going to be remastering every episode, hopefully that resolves some of the issues with the earlier episodes.
Anyways, Let me know how the this Special sounds.
Episode 8 is me and Fenrir talking about the RGC. Hope you enjoy it!
Warning! It's an hour long!

Podcasts are getting better, good job Spoon. I'd like to request a kief episode if they're up for it. Katja's Abyss was a great game and everything they've put out since has been super impressive.
