A Small Break From Recording

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012 | Author: Adam

Hey listeners!

Due to technological problems and incredibly busy summer schedules we’ve decided to take another 2-week break from recording the podcast! We should, most definitely, be back in early August with episode 34 (which will be a re-recording #gahhh!). Our sincerest apologies for this inconvenience.

But in the mean-time, why don’t you re-listen to some of our older episodes! Maybe a few film commentaries? All can be found on our Podcast Page! Enjoy!

Furthermore, join our Facebook Group and participate in active chat with many listeners of the show!

And finally, make sure to look forward to Heather’s “Measuring the Time Since Deathly Hallows” blog posts!

Thanks for understanding,

The Potter Pensieve Team

Year 2 In Review – Part 1!

Monday, December 19th, 2011 | Author: Adam

Foreward: We really hope you enjoy reading through all of the events of this year for the Potter Pensieve Podcast. (Hint – watch for underlined words.) And we hope you take part in the challenge as well! For instructions and information on the New Year’s Challenge, click HERE! Good luck!

2011 has practically come and gone and I am jolted to the reality that it has been 2 whole years since The Potter Pensieve Podcast was first started. This year has been just as, if not more, eventful than the last. We’ve had over 20,000 downloads this year, topping those of last year with over 6,000! The year has been a whirlwind of craziness: creativity, originality, new bloggers, recognition, laughs and even sadness. This year certainly developed upon last year and has made our podcasting experience all the better.

With January, 2011, came a whole new feeling. I know it would sound cheesy to call it “wisdom”, so I will just say that it was more “experience”. To say that we’d kept a podcast up and running for an entire year was quite an accomplishment, especially when rummaging through the Harry Potter podcast section on iTunes and noticing that a good 90% of all podcasts had only made to their 5th episode before they quit. Having the show up for a year gave us a sense of confidence that we could keep it up and running for yet another year..and we did!

January began with episode 14, on which Sarah Myers, our Wizarding World blogger (now a Pensieve regular) made her first guest-host appearance on the show! Before recording, Sarah gave us the spiel about how she was incredibly nervous and to just “take it easy” on her. Needless to say, we were shocked when she began recording with us as if she’d been doing it from the very beginning! She got along with all of us: Thio, Emily, Hollie and I, extremely  well and joked with us as if she’d known us forever! When the recording was finished, the general consensus was – “Bring her back!” On episode 14, we also drew the winners of the first New Year’s Challenge and were delighted when we pulled listener (and Thio’s good friend) Kirsten Baumann from the hat. We hope she had a good experience podcasting with us!

With February came a great deal of “technical difficulties”. For starters, the 4 of us came upon the revelation that we should all record our own separate audio tracks. Why we hadn’t done this before? Who knows… The problem with Skyping altogether and recording it as a single audio file is that there are many cuts in the audio, and it is rather difficult to delete coughing, sniffing, and sneezing without deleting the portion of speaking that a person is saying during it. Recording our own audio tracks promised us clarity, and gave the freedom of deleting unwanted sounds from whoever, without interfering with the topics being discussed. So! We gave it a shot, feeling everything would be great, but soon we found that certain podcasters (THIO! *Cough*) had his speakers too loud and picked up all of our sound at a lag. Soon we were presented with yet another editing nightmare. But after a few episodes we finally fixed the issue and found that this new way of recording was perfect.

As we moved in to March the online Harry Potter fandom was evidently becoming more excited more the release of the final Harry Potter film. Blog posts from many different websites began cropping up, presenting “never before seen” images and information from the sets of the film. Comments and speculation surged through the net and it was becoming more clear to us that we needed to add to ourtrusty website “staff”. We opened the blogging applications once more, and eagerly welcomed Katherine, Rhea, Marcel and Christine to the Potter Pensieve team! At once, in all the excitement, blog posts continuously plagued the site with topics pertaining to the new film, and a plethora of other HP related things. It was incredibly awesome to see the site with so much activity, and in the back of my head I questioned whether the website would garner this much attention after the final film had been released…

In March we also successfully completed our look at Prisoner of Azkaban, and in episode 16 we Thio, Emily, Hollie and I started the “big books”. Goblet of Fire was simply fantastic to go through, and as we moved into the spring and summer we were blown away by all of the amazing events that would soon occur…until next post!



The Potter Pensieve #28 – OotP Chapters 7-9

Sunday, December 18th, 2011 | Author: Adam

Thio, Sarah and Adam are in the PPP studio this week! And they’re discussing chapters 7-9 of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! Topics of discussion include:
-Umbridge is looking for a challenge against Harry!
-The Weasleys are truly an admirable family.
-Why Ms. Figg is so “badass” in the book as compared to the movie.
-62442 = MAGIC!
And loads more!
Just a warning to everyone, we decided to keep a couple of slightly cruder jokes in this episode just for some more laughs.
