DOWNLOAD HURR. (so embarrassing for me.)
That’s right, you read it right. SNSDKorean blog has just released a podcast for you lovely readers 😛
We’ve been debating this subject for a few months now and finally went ahead and recorded one last…Friday! Maeniac, dreadtech, ruraldaze, and I all took part in this mock episode. “Soshi and Sones , we are the truth of the world” Please keep in mind this is the first time all of us worked together for the podcast so things might seem kind of awkward, might’ve missed some points, and totally forgot to mention certain news. Go easy on us (:
The total running time of the podcast is about 16 minutes, thanks to Mae for the editing! Drop some comments, let us know what you think, and then vote in the poll so we can decide if we should continue with this podcast thing!
Yeah, so downloading. Thank you 🙂

HURRAY!!! I dont need to go on the internet to read everything now!! i hope this continues!
Where can I hear Seohyun speak French?
You guys did pretty good~ Made me feel like it was some talk show discussing about SNSD haha.
Did you guys used Skype? There was a problem with the volume of voices, some were loud enough but some was hard to hear. XP Keep up the good work!
i enjoyed it :] more!!
Coowl :3. Everyone’s voice was as I expected, except for dread! I heard you once before, but it stays strange. On chatroll you give of this feeling of a more serious person, but when talking you sound so happy (that’s a good thing!) xD
Overall, nice job!:D
LOL sfx olawd.
Thanks for editing, mae!
shall we make this happen again? XD
More and for iTunes hehe
I thought the music at times tended to interrupt you guys. Probably could do with softer (or no) background music
HAHAHA totally awesome!!! I love it….hope you guys would continue to do this =)
@ dreadtech – oh my gosh! I’m totally loving your accent..

to the people voting no more thanks: well at least give us some tips, critiques bout how to better ourselves 😛
i had a hard time hearing some of it. but otherwise, it was interesting XD
Great job guys! Hahaha was heaps funny! Just a note on the voice volumes, was abit tricky to hear everything, but hey thats alright just a minor problem that can be relatively easy to fix! =] So props to you all i wana hear more! =]
Oh yeah baby, I’ve been waiting for something like this! I just finished downloading so I’ll give some feedback when I’ve finished listen.
First thing’s first, I love the song you played in the break. It really appeals to me, so smooth, adore the jazzy feel to it.
It’s interesting because it’s pretty much everything I’d expect from a podcast, yet it I can just listen to it, relax and enjoy myself, which I can’t usually do for whatever reason. It’s a fun way to cap up and discuss SNSD and with the bloggers’ opinions. Sorry dread, I’ve already heard your voice and many like it several days of the week, but Aun’s voice is pretty… nice to listen to… Heh heh…
It’s a good opportunity (for me, at least) to learn more about the dynamics of the group and how things worked in the past. I was interested by the discussion on Seobaby’s new song because of that with how dread was surprised that it was her chosen for a solo at this time.
Music break was a great way to break up the flow of the show, gave me time to process everything that had been said in the first half.
I have to say that my favourite aspect of the podcast is the length. Other podcasts that I used to listen to were all longer and it was just kind of intense on me as the listener. This isn’t too taxing on my time and it’s something that I can fit in if I need to settle down away from my work for a little while. I’m not sure how often you’ll be recording podcasts if this becomes regular, but I think 15-25 minutes is ideal for keeping up to date with the group and also the blogging team.
The background music for that first part of the show was a little too loud to be considered being in the background, which is easily changed though. Perhaps next time have some music that’s not so… hard with the beats? It’s good for the opening, but you should reduce the volume as people start talking, like after the individuals’ introductions. The sfx were pretty funny, a little corny, but they do add to the atmosphere.
If you continue this podcast show, will you be having any special guests? I can’t really think of many guests you’d have other than 1k (because she’s A4M like that), but I’m sure you can come up with some more. Doesn’t need to be every show, but nice every now and then. Some shows have segments, but I don’t think this one particularly needs any.
I can’t wait for more! Good work team! Also – WOOOO CALIFORNIA GIRL!!! (Not sure what kind of girl Mae is, sorry.)
Oh, by the way, I don’t mean to spam the comments, but who chose ‘Trouble Sleeping’ for the break? I want to know whose music taste I’m admiring.
Mae’s musical tastes, we’re taking turns to pick music form what I know, so it should be fun to pick out who chose which song 😛
I think it’d be better and much hassle free if you could post a streaming one instead of downloading as it’d be taking up time and space. So news isn’t that instant so to speak. Also with podcast, it’s quite hard to read the news since you can’t show complimentary pictures as well. Kinda hard to absorb if we missed out certain points and have to playback instead of written words where we can just read again.
Nevertheless, the idea is there and I believe it can be fine tuned since this is a first!
Ah, the good thing about the podcast is that it doesn’t replace the blog posts! From what I can gather, the team will still continue making their posts like usual, this is more like a discussion show in which they give their thoughts on news that the blog readers will probably already know if they read the blog regularly. This is good for people like me who can’t keep up with the updates on the blog. I get to find out what’s going on in the SoShi world in a compressed package, without having to spend too much time reading. I replayed the podcast about 4 times without even realising anyway…
I agree about the streaming idea. Personally, I prefer downloading because I don’t have to worry about buffering ever again once it’s downloaded and I can keep it on my ipod to listen to whenever, but it would be nice for listeners to have the option.
it’s cool! Do i want more? i don’t know lo…
The bitrate should be higher. 128 at least. 320 is preferable. You can also cut out some of the dead air between one speaker to another. But that will disappear with experience. There is also a leveling issue. Some people are louder than others. Either have the loud people speak softer, soft people speak up, loud ones speak farther away from their mics, the soft ones speak closer or while in editing bring up the decibels on the soft ones and lower down the loud speakers.
While in editing, you can try to edit out the mic popping. But all these things I said before will fix itself with experience. Keep it up and if you guys are looking around for special guests, I am up. That is if you are willing to have a zombie speak.
oh thanks for the catch ToZ i think i did accidentally put the bitrate kinda low..
aun: hmrrmmrmmm…im ng seng aahn,,rmrmmm. or rural daze.
bosslady: hi everyone this is boss lady from snsd korean~~
girlmae: wassup this is jeti maniac mae…(not sure if you said Jetimaniac mae or VJ maniac mae -__-‘ )
hahaha awesome guys! sexy voices are sexy! @__@
yehey! Ive heard boss lady’s voice!
nice sound effect guys!
i feel like you guys are like minor celebrities while hearing this, dread just might have a potential radio DJ potential…nice!nice!
you guys did all this on skype?wow amazing!
the song on the break was nice job its like an official radio station XDDDDDDDDDDDDD
MAE: you should have said “flint oppa” somewhere~~ >__< (ROFLMAOLAWL)
congratulations guys!!!!!i think this is nice job!!, im definitely looking forward for more podcasts!!
i said “dj maniac mae” out of habit.. i meant to just say MAEniac haha
yeah you said that..
i’ve heard all of your voices before except boss, i got confused with your voice and hanWon once, somehow i also get confused wether its you or boss talking there since this is the firstime hearing her…you girls sound a bit the same for me
the only thing distinctive about you is its all small sentences, its just all quick lines hehhe..nice job though! that one welcome line is already a win! XD
I don’t know I couldn’t pay any attention on anything but dread’s accent. And Aun’s awkward “I’m Seung Aun.”
Just joking, let me finish the podcast then I’ll post my thoughts 😛
…my mic went off for some weird reason.. i was talkin a lot OFF AIR to NOBODY. hahah.
Weird. I cant really make out the words. But oh wells, very nice try for the first time. You can actually work on it, sync the ‘replies’ better. Hope to hear something better! Good luck!
i love dreadtech’s accent…aussie’s accents FTW~~
It was really nice!
The idea itself is cool, but I found the mp3 very hard to listen to because your voices were a bit unclear and the background music was too loud.
podcast is such a great idea..hope it really last long…hope more people do know about it…it should be advertised in all snsd eng-sub videos
Lol the beginning is fun xD
Thers like a 2 seconds pause between each line 😛 the podcast’s kinda cool though
