Episode 001: A Day Late and a Dollar Short

Instructables Podcast Here is the inaugural episode of the Instructables Podcast: How Do I?

We received a lot of what we referred to as housekeeping questions that we felt we should just take care of straight away to get them out in the open. We hope those lay out more clearly what we're doing, and what we're hoping for. We had a two technical glitches where Jake's mic was cutting him off in case you're curious why there's some weird buzzing/cut noises mid way into the file.

The two questions we received dealt with adding smoke or sparks to toys and creating vehicles that are powered by the wind.

Jake and I both had songs we thought would be fun to have as an intro or outro and in the end I just made the decision to use a loop from Garageband (as it was on my computer). It's free, no one is going to get angry, and if something else comes up in the future, we can always update.

We're incredibly unprofessional, as you'll gather from our introductions and closings. We might get better at that as we go along, but I don't expect that's going to happen. As it happens, I absolutely love our opening/closing remarks, but that might just be me.
