Here’s a double-shot of UNLOCKED to get back into the swing after too many months locked down due to COVID; and this spin is a little different. Two new class rosters, new location on the Yard (Chapel clerks, REPRESENT!), and a new stress on teaching the art of podcasting. Previous episodes have focused on the what the guys had to say. Starting with Episode 9, the guys are also learning how to say what they want to say. That means learning how to record, proper mic technique, how to edit in the digital space, as well as more abstract things like how to use these tools to construct a suitable sonic space for the listener…but first comes learning what plug goes in which input, how to adjust gain to limit room noise, how to politely tell a roomful of your cohorts to shut the f*** up!
In this episode, we meet the (mostly) new B Yard class. Tracy Paul returns from the Dining Hall, but everyone else is new to the scene. And every second of recording and editing was done by guys in the class.
