Occasionally I am asked how people can contribute to the podcast. Here are some words.
The contributors to the podcast are mainly bloggers because I prefer things to be mostly “from the audience perspective”. I am happy to do (and have done a few) interviews and would do more but I don’t want to be too much of an insider.
We record on Sundays, usually at 10:0am or sometimes 6:30pm via Skype.
I prepare a shared Google document on Fridays where I include a list of shows I’ve seen and a master list of current London shows that we haven’t reviewed.
The idea is that people are supposed to fill in plays they’ve seen so that we can come up with a run-list. However what normally happens now is that I compile a list of shows that regular contributors have reviewed or mentioned on twitter and suggest ones that more than one of us have seen as well as the master list. This list is included in an email sent out with the shared document.
Ideally I like to do about 4 show discussions and have the podcast last just over half an hour but it really depends on what people have seen and what they feel enthused about.
I don’t enforce real names on the podcast so contributors like RevStan, WebCowgirl and Phil from the WestEnd Whingers are identified with those names rather than their actual or full names.
