A weekend full of recording

Looks like we actually pulled it off!

Our first (real) Podcast went live this past Saturday, with Keith and Z hosting the show. No specific topics were really talked about - we used it more as a platform to discuss our thoughts on what the show could be and what we feel could be topics that will be worth talking about.

We followed this up on Sunday with Keith, Keyvan, and Z discussing sports, mainly centered around Kobe's retirement, Steph Curry, GOAT NBA players, cricket (yes that cricket), and athlete longevity in sports. All of these can be found in the archive section of the site, as well as on our SoundCloud account (simply click "play podcast" from the home screen to get directed to our latest podcast".)

We also had a group of friends come on by thru the weekend for a little bit of fun. These will be posted in the excerpts section of the site.

All in all - a great weekend. We think this is something we'll enjoy doing for quite a while. Looking forward to gathering some steam!

The 1st one

Tomorrow is the day.

We are looking forward to recording our first podcast tomorrow. Obviously, being the first one we'll do, it's going to be an experiment to see what works. Our main goal is to keep the atmosphere as conversational as possible. We've built a structure that will focus on a couple things:

- Quick Discussion: We will discuss the day's drink for the podcast in order to prime the discussion around our topics (I mean the website does have the word degenerate in it after all, no?). We will also have a quick discussion about something or other.

- Current Events: We will pick a topic or two that is currently dominating the headlines. These could be domestic (United States), or around the world. The group will have a conversation about the topic and float around their opinions.

- Broad Subject: We will pick a primary subject or topic that has very far-reaching implications. We will try and focus this around a fundamental area that is highly impactful to society in some way.

Obviously, this is subject to change. As the weeks roll by we'll adjust and play to our strengths and try to reduce the weaknesses as much as possible. Yes, shutting down the podcast is one of the actions if one of our weaknesses is "really bad at podcasts".

In addition to the podcasts, we will have contributors write some posts about various topics. Again, these can span various areas. We will tag and categorize them appropriately so it will make it easy for you all to browse and search. As the site grows (hopefully), we will look to change and adjust our viewing formats so that it makes navigation easy. Our priority is to make content available to everyone in the most clean and accessible way possible.

We will look to upload podcasts on a weekly basis. Posts will be more sporadic, but we will aim to have content available on a regular basis.
