Professional quality +1

Some notes:

1. I don't get the point of the whole "woods" joke thing.

2. Infest's voice was a little quieter than the rest. Not that bad, but worth noting.

3. Laugh guys! Sometimes it felt like you guys were trying to quiet your laughter. Share your laughter! You laughed a lot, but it always felt hushed.

4. Great job on the shout-outs. Makes it feel very relevant.

5. SAT for Asylum? Lol!

6. Mentioning the dog while in the video... eh... it just took me out of focus of the video.

7. Btw, I consider CODZL canon. 8-)

8. Super soldiers?! Grr.

But still, very well done.

Thank you for the comments, MMX & KAZ! We really appreciate it. We will definitely take what you say into great consideration for improvement. :)

My voice actually was hushed because I didn't have a mic, so the quality was original a bit distorted on my end. Thus, some aftereffects allowed it to be received much clearly but with a bit of a volume drop.

Great job for getting this up & running guys. I'll listen to this tonight.

What happened to the first thread? I went to listen to it & it was gone?

From all the reviews it sounds like you did a pretty good job!

Good job on the podcast guys.

My only complaint (probably the only person who has a problem with it) is that it was just to long. You had certain topics, and I was wondering when you'd get to them at times.

Suggestion, split the pod cast up into smaller sections. Can still be 1 podcast, but just split up for easier listening. Of course, that's only if you guys want to. Not sure about everyone, but I'm just not a fan of sitting there for long bits of time listening to something. My mind starts wondering and I start losing focus and get bored unfortunately.

Just finished listening & I think you guys did a great job.

Everyone was confident, no-one sounded nervous at any point. There were a few dead air moments but you saw it coming & someone caught it. It seemed to flow pretty well, though it was long & I normally don't get 40 mins to listen to it straight through. 20 minute episodes would be my ideal. Maybe have a bit more of a script rather than just topics which you are going to cover, or if you had time do a practise run through.

You may have been a little off on some storyline aspects, if your going to cover a certain topics maybe refer to a particular thread or write a script for it.

All in all I think you guys did a superb job & I thank you all for taking the time to record, upload & set all of this up. A few improvements or implementations like this is what CoDz needs.

Stay Calm & Kill Zombies. (great finishing catch phrase)

P.S. Flammen. You have a great hosting voice.

I disagree with PINNAZ and Rissole. I loved the length of it. In fact, professional podcasts are often much longer than what you've got. Btw, in the old days of radio, you didn't just sit there and stare at the radio. You listened to it as you did something else. You can hardly say you're too busy, because you can only say you're busy if you are audibly fixed in your task. If it doesn't matter what sound is playing, this podcast is a good way to pass the time.

This I think is to be seen like a TV show. Not tiny little bite-size segments. If you don't have time for a TV show, then you won't have time for this. Splitting it up I think would be awful.

Also, i think there should NOT be a script. There should be a general idea, but have you ever heard of a podcast having a script? The ideas need to flow naturally, which will not happen if there is what is "supposed" to be said.

Lastly, I don't think their inaccuracies were that far off. Hardly worth mentioning really. Its to be expected. We're human. I don't think it's fair to make them study it beforehand. A podcast is supposed to be natural and down-to-earth, and if you made it a written, scripted exam, it would lose that.

I listen to podcasts from scientists, and I could see many similarities between them and this. I think it would be harmful to make those similarities go away.

Btw, Flammenwerfer, referring to how I said I believe CODZL is canon, I know there are others that aren't so sure about that. But I'd be willing to make my case sometime (not in this thread most likely; in the appropriate setting) if you would like.

nice, we'll have to use ye olde abbey road.

i'm so stoked that people dig this. the constructive criticism is fantastic. we'll work on being more concise. How does about 10 minutes per topic sound? Rest assured that this may spill over here or there.

We go by a very loose "script", more so to keep us on track - it's kind of like an itinerary. The whole point is for it to be more like a conversation - we're going for an extemporaneous feel. here's the actual "script" we used for the first episode:

> Introduction

→ Current CoDz events

locked asylum, youtube intro debate, ...

→ Topics of the week

international zombie center, shangri-la confirmed on mars?, water map / autec

→ Questions by followers

do a promotion for this

→ Upcoming stuff

video content, gameplays, strategies, guest hosts:richybabess next week

→ Ending

so does anyone have any topics/threads they'd like talked about in the next episode?

doesn't have to be a topic/thread, can be a question... really anything at all.

Glad to see that many people enjoyed this podcast. :)

Like GRILL said, we need some content suggested by you guys (and gals) that we can discuss. Also, we'd like some formal/informal questions as well towards the end of the podcast. We'll take virtually anything for that part, so don't be afraid to PM one of us or post it on here so we can answer it. :)
