One thing that I know is I have no idea what I am getting myself into, but when has that ever stopped me before. Ever since my We’re JK Podcast Review the idea of podcasting has lingered in my skull. Now I hate my voice like most people, so if I hear myself after recoding anything it’s an instant delete. I would be crazy to do a podcast, hating myself in the ways I do ever so much, not to mention my lack of any speaking skills. Still I tweet, text, and email buddies asking if they will be guests, hell I don’t even know how it would work across country in every way possible. To my surprise nearly everybody is excited over my new venture, in fact even supportive in agreeing to be guests. I am not sure how to start conversations or what to even converse about on a podcast with people I only know from text conversations. I’m going into this with not much to lose though. If it works out then it could be a lot of fun. There is only so much you can run from disliking aspects of yourself before you have to face it. I will have more word on the subject of my future podcasting at a later date. Keep a eye out.
The podcast is about three guys Jeff, Matt, and Keith. Two have retail jobs in electronics departments so be prepared to chuckle at all of the bad work day stories, hell I would listen to it if it was only those. One guy looks up at his previous work at the Taco Bell drive-thru window and really really makes you wish you started your adult life at a fast food joint like that. There is talk about a penis and tits shaped soap brand in the works from the artist personality in the show. Now if you are a bachelor or just a lonely housewife this would be the soap for you, although using it in the housewife sense might not be the best of ideas. The guys have much respect for Ellen Page and her hotness, I agree with the mutual opinion there. It’s turning out to be a dorm room type chat podcast, not scripted and a three main guys just shooting the shit with each other. With Clear inspiration from Kevin Smith’s ‘S.I.R’, these foul mouthed guys are pretty damn entertaining. I started the first episode thinking that it was going to be a badly scripted piece of garbage much like all the other new podcasts popping up every minute, and once it ended I had to listen to the rest. If you listen to the first episode you can decide if you like it for yourself. www.werejk.com
Below is a interview I conducted with Jeff Takeover about the podcast:
This actually has been something i’ve wanted to do for a while, I started listening to The Nerdist in october 2010 right before I had gotten knee surgery, I started getting into only their podcasts a lot, it gave me something to listen to while I was in the hospital or doctors office which was pretty often. I heard kevin smith on their podcast and I almost pissed myself laughing. I checked his podcast out and started listening to everything he did. It got my mind off of all the crap that was going on at that time in my life, since last may I had been trying to make a soccer podcast with two of my friends but they never had time and for some reason realized my brother is a funny guy so I asked him to join in and he was totally game then he invited his friend Matt to join us and we had amazing chemistry and it just felt like we were all hanging out telling each other funny stories. It’s really the hilight of my week because I can forget all the junk that happened and just hang out and laugh I hope there is no end date because It’s something I really enjoy. It’s not really a project for school, the website portion is but the other part isn’t.
