The Scare Your Friends Podcast: HELP WANTED!!
« on: 08:02:47 PM 01/07/16 »
So, I'm officially using this thread as an advertisement. An AD looking for new "Friends"/ guests to be on the Scare Your Friends Podcast.

I'm posting this for the future because I've made up my mind on a few things. This was never supposed to be anything more than my friends IRL, talking about creepypasta. But this podcast has begun to pick up some steam and has actually gained a very small following of regular listeners. This is far a self-handed compliment to myself, I know that I still have a long way to go but this podcast is the first thing I've made that seems to stick and get some form of consistent attention.

This is all thanks to websites like youtube, twitter, facebook, soundcloud, toospooky.com, the midnight marinara forum, and this one - Bonus Lives. So, I've decided to focus on this podcast as my top priority for all content-related purposes. However, by the end of January, I will be back in college and away from my friends - if this is going to work I need to adapt in my ways.

For those of you who have not heard it, Scare Your Friends is a creepypasta podcast where my friends and I read creepypasta and talk about what we read. So far, only I have read the stories in advance (to pick them out for the show) while all my friends read them completely blind - their reactions are a key part of the experience. There has been three episodes posted so far which have all been posted my my main channel: Skill Flea Circus.

I've been hesitating to record a "skype" edition of Scare Your Friends. I need to figure out a proper setup before I head back to college and will need some initial volunteers to help me get things settled in. It's important for me to get many different kinds of guests - from casual creepypasta readers to more experienced ones. Especially from you, the community of BonusLives.com! Why you ask? My only prerequisite for anyone interested in collabing on this podcast is to have a semi-decent mic. Most of the regulars on this forum have their own YouTube related channels with videos on them, so the majority of you already have the "mic" step covered!

Anyone who comes on as a guest will, of course, be credited and have whatever they want linked/credited in my video descriptions. Please message me or simply reply to this post if you are in fact interested. My skype is "skill_flea" and you can add me if you want. You can also recommend stories to me - stories that I may not have read yet, and ones I would consider reading for the first time on a live podcast.

*At this time, I can't say when I will start actively recruiting but consider this the first step. And if you think you're not experienced enough to do this then don't worry about it - I've only been on like three of these myself!  ;)

I am definitly up for this. I am somewhat knowledgeable about horror but not creepypastas so I think I may have something decent to bring to the table. Also I think we have the same mic (blue yeti) so I'm definitly set there.

Also when do you plan on trying to get another one? I'd hate for this to run out of steam.

Its a logitech headset. Not that great, but like I always say, you gotta start somewhere!

Logitech works fine for me - until the wires eventually fall out. Every headset, the wires drop out. -_-
