Welcome to the first episode of Aqua Road Radio. My name is Shravan. You can read all about me to the right side of this page. I’ve been around playing MapleStory since the beta testing of Global MapleStory, but at the time didn’t realize that it was a beta. -_- In fact, I didn’t know until last summer (Summer ’06), when everyone was saying that Maple Global’s only been out for about a year and I knew that I played before that.
Anyway….this episode is more or less just an introduction to Aqua Road Radio. So I’m sure you’re all wondering what this podcast will be about. Well…of course we’ll have news of events, updates, and other such things, but mostly, I see this podcast as being more of me ranting on a subject and then asking you guys to e-mail me your opinions on it. If you have stories of amusing, funny, awkward, or weird moments, please send me an e-mail about it and I might read your story on the podcast. You can also record your own MP3 of your story, if you prefer, and e-mail me that instead. I can slip that right into the podcast and you could have your voice featured. I say “might” and “could” because I can’t guarantee that if you send me something, it’ll end up on Aqua Road Radio. Please keep in mind that it has nothing to do against you, but I can’t put up like 60 (I’m being optimistic…) or so responses in one podcast.
But Aqua Road Radio is more for you guys than me. I mean…you’re the ones listening to it. So let me know what you want to listen to. Give me suggestions and I’ll see if I can incorporate them into the podcast somehow. The first few podcasts are going to be more or less experimental anyway, to get it to the point where you guys actually want to listen to it. ^_^
As it stands, it looks like I’ll be posting a new episode about every 2 weeks. I’ll probably record them on a weekend and put it out early that week. Also, if you’re reading this, I’m sure you know by now, but the blog for the Aqua Road Radio is at http://aquaroadradio.blogspot.com. I’ve also talked quite a bit about e-mail. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well…I believe that wraps up this episode. I hope to hear from you guys and hopefully, you’ll hear from me again in a couple of weeks. ^_^
EDIT: I’d like to apologize to MapleCast, which was the first MapleStory podcast. MapleCast has 4 episodes released:
Episode 001: 7/30/06
Episode 002: 8/10/06
Episode 003: 8/13/06
Episode 004: 12/6/06 (titled “A New Beginning”, though they haven’t posted since)
However, they were still first. So I will be coming up with a new catch phrase and the banner for this blog will be changed to reflect that. Sorry again MapleCast.
