FOSS LK - Podcast

(Milinda Arambawela) #61

Apita equipment tika hoya ganna wenava enam ikmanatama.

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #62

My idea exactly. lets record two episods. The Episod 0 (An Intro )and the first one. We can release the Intro on Jan 1st and the Episod 1 is the first week. After that we can go with bi weekly .

Anyway to find the equipments ? After the first ones, we can purchase by seing how it goes. Or else we can purchase directly . My idea is two Mics and a mixr. Lets start this soon.

Any update guys on the gear guys. ?

(Dhanushka C) #65

@milinda can we ask from Kalinga aiya? :thinking:

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #66

@kalinga will help. But we need to find our own stuff ne. this is not a temporary thing ne. So better to find a permement solution. ?

(Dhanushka C) #67

@lokuhetty My idea is to do first one or two with kalinga aiya since he knows how to do this job. During that time we can focus on finding own stuff or podcast partner for the stuff.

@Ruwan told he has equipments. We can start within this week if all of us are okay. And we need 3 or 4 topics.

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #69

Great… i also purchased 4 mics and 2 external soundcards with 2 input each. Its still in transit and will be here in couple of days. Anyway lets start soon. How about my previous suggestions ? for topics…

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #70

We need to complete the following soon…

  1. Logo
  2. Theme Music
  3. Place


E#::0 - The Pilot

Introduction on Freedom podcast and the hosts (2-3 mins)
What is FOSS? (5 - 10 mins)
Some background on FOSS in global status (10 -20 mins)
Some history on Foss on Sri Lanka (10-15 mins)
What is and current status (10 -15 mins)
Current projects and how to contribute. (15 mins)


FOSS news for 2018 - A summary ( 20 mins :News )
Most popular FOSS project - Linux ( 40 mins : Topic of the Day)

The above is a suggestion. The pilot is an Intro to the podcast. The first Episode is the actual first one. In a normal episode, I thought of having 20 minutes of FOSS news and the rest on a Selected Topic.

Shall we do both episodes on the same day?

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #71

Got the two external soundcards. Waiting for 4x Mics. Anyway guys shall we do something ? Soon …

(Dhanushka C) #72

It’s been 10 days. I am taking too much time to reply. Really sorry. Got stuck with some other works. Sure let’s start. I am okay with the topics. Let’s see whether we can have some trending worldwide Foss news to share in between at the time we are recording.

For logo, shall I create something very simple? For the place actually I have no contact for a suitable place.

Ps: recording on same day is okay with me

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #73

yeh lets get over with the logo and the theme music. I just got my ordered
2x USB sound Cards
4x Clipon Mics
Tested them and they work fine with Audacity in Fedora. Sound is not bad and enough for the start. if we do not have professional mixer and mics, these will be enough .

(Dasun K Lokuhetty) #74

We will do a google doc on the news.

About the place . Anybody have a place around SLIIT ? On or off premis of campus … ? Are there anyway to get permission in university ? Is it okay around Malabe ?

BTW i can do a video recording on the same without much editing (freestyle ) and upload to a youtube channel as well.

Any thoughts ?

(Dhanushka C) #75

Sounds good to me. It will take some time for me to reach around malabe since I am coming from bambalapitiya. Anyway okay with me. When can we start??
