Episode 10 of TMJ Podcast – Another Perfect World (Jorien van Nes)

It’s been a few months since the last podcast but we’ve had the perfect excuse to produce Episode 10, with the Metaplace launch of the virtual worlds documentary, Another Perfect World. I received a preview copy of the movie yesterday and was impressed with its breadth and quality.

The podcast is devoted to an interview with Another Perfect World‘s Co-Director, Jorien van Nes, who provides her thoughts on the film and virtual worlds more broadly. Enjoy:

Episode 1 of TMJ Podcast

It’s taken a while but I’m proud to announce that first edition of the Metaverse Journal Podcast is now available:

[display_podcast]

We’re working on being listed in the podcast directory of iTunes but in the meantime, you can subscribe to the podcast RSS feed here. As Jovin very handily says in the comments below, pasting the link into iTunes (‘Advanced’ menu – ‘Subscribe to Podcast’) will get you subscribed within iTunes anyway.

The running sheet for Episode 1:

1. Introduction
2. News roundup
3. Book reviews
4. Editorial: Telstra and ABC one year on
5. Wrap-up

As I mention in the podcast, its ongoing success will depend on you – post a comment here on what you liked / disliked about the first edition and what other stuff you’d like to hear. If you wanted to submit your own audio snippets for inclusion, they’ll be used as well. Think of it as your audio soapbox.

All feedback appreciated though I already know I have some improvement to do in terms of audio production and my own delivery ;) For the tech-heads, the podcast was recorded using a trial version of Ubercaster. I was so impressed with it that I’ve now purchased it – it’s well worth a look if podcasting’s your thing.
