Yep, you heard that right. I’m about to launch a new podcasting venture here at RandomConnections. I’ve got several episodes in various stages of research and/or production right now. Most of these are episodes are taken from previous posts, or are based on themes from previous posts. Right now I don’t have a timeline for when each episode will come out, but I’m hoping to have the first episode out within a couple of weeks.
In keeping with the idea of random connections, I’m hoping to include random voices and responses. Here’s how you can help…
Each episode I’ll post a couple of questions and ask for responses. All you have to do is click the big red “Record” button and answer away. I won’t identify anyone, apart from voice, and I can alter that upon request. I also promise to edit and make you sound good.
This doesn’t require much thought. I only need a few seconds for a sound bite. Just say the first thing that pops into your head.
So…ready? Here’s are the questions for the first episode:
2015 is the year the the movie “Back to the Future II” predicted flying cars, hoverboards, and a whole host of other miraculous inventions. Looking back at predictions from that movie and others, please answer one of the following questions. Take your time. You don’t have to leave your name.
UPDATE: I’ve just been made aware that the recording link doesn’t work on either Android phones or iPhones. If you’re going to participate, looks like it will have to be on a laptop or computer. Oh well.
What science fiction inventions or events are you most disappointed that we don’t have, or that didn’t happen?
What invention (within some modicum of practicality) would you LIKE to see in the next 50-100 years?
When you’re ready to respond, just click on the button and record. Be sure to allow access to your microphone.
DISCLAIMER: I reserve the right to edit and omit as I see fit. I’ll do my best to to make you sound good, and I promise not to rearrange your words to make you say something you didn’t. If you leave your e-mail address, I’ll send you a note to let you know when your voice is going to be included in the next episode.
