So, the blueprint I've come up with, in theory it makes for a great format, as presenters my mate is a professional performer - theatre/radio/tv ads/bands/etc - and I'm... Well, I'm a charming mofo.
It's probably going to be 1/3 scripted 2/3 ad-lib. As for content, I've come up with a system whereby we have almost limitless interesting stuff - even if nothing happened in the world anymore we'd have a year's worth of ammo easy.
The three things we're left with are implementation, branding, and monetisation.
Being subscribed to dozens of podcasts I'm getting a good idea how to deliver best. We were talking about branding tonight, we think we've got a great angle and appeal, kinda like we'll be little known for ages, but we'll produce something that goes viral and all you bastards will be hipster like "I knew of them when they were shitter than they are now".
With a total of three emails and an hour of discussion of the idea between us, we field tested some stuff tonight, and were right away quite pleased with the reception, if we can carry the energy and interest and humour over to a recorded format I reckon we're on a winner.
