Tavern Chat Podcast - Putting the Idea to the The Tavern's Community

I like what Tim Shirt's did with the Gothridge Manor Podcast. I've also been seriously looking at doing some Youtube videos. Like, to the point of researching editing software.

Then I started looking at the podcast host that Tim was using - Anchor.fm. It more than a host, it's a full podcasting suite. Works well with phones using the Anchor app and makes bringing in others to the podcast a breeze.

I think I'm sold ;)

The question becomes, what kind of podcast does The Tavern's Community want from a podcast coming from your OSR Bartender?

- Short (5 to 15 minutes per episode) 4 to 7 times a week

- Longer (30 to 60 minutes per episode) 4 to 8 times a month

- A combination of the above - short episodes for news and gaming thoughts and blog recaps, longer episodes with guests

I'm thinking I'd talk about recent posts at The Tavern, interesting posts from other gaming blogs and forums, gaming news (not all of which is appropriate for the blog but the podcast could direct you on where to find current newsworthy stories not covered at The Tavern) and other assorted sundries.

Me, I'm leaning towards a combination of long and short episodes myself.

Give me your thoughts in the comments below and vote in the survey in the upper right corner of this page.


  1. Do short ones several times a week with a long episode once a week.

  2. Dude. You should do what you can keep up with. You don't listen to my anchor podcast? Shame on you.

    1. I listened to one of yours the other day. Do you recommend Erik use the schlong format(short and long)?

  3. Just my own personal preference, and perhaps because of my older demographic, but I don't listen to podcasts. YouTube channels, yes, if the videos are under 30 minutes, but that's just me.

  4. If you’re looking for a collaborator I humbly offer my services.

  5. Short, 15 minutes is long. Listen to a few of the podcast and see if you are still interested after 15 minutes. I'm betting you will not be.

    And I cannot wait to hear your trials and tribulations with anchor. I've begrudgingly attempted to use the app for times over the last I don't know half a year or so. Every time there interphase is so poorly designed it pisses me off and I delete the app. Then Jason Hobbs drags me back Kicking and Screaming promising me that they made it better, every time it is marginally better, but it still sucks.

  6. What happened to the one you used to do with Teh Badger?

  7. Glad to hear it, do what suits you best.
