January 17th, 2021 | Recorded a podcast

Today I recorded my first podcast, with a maker friend of mine, Lachlan.

It's not an interview. Not a formal conversation. No agenda. Just a chat.

We recorded one hour and the time flew by.

Then I edited the footage. Took about ~2 hours to do it.

Now I'm trying to upload to YouTube, but I have YouTube blocked on my laptop. Will have to find a turn around. How stupid.

I usually hate to watch or listen to myself and cringe a lot when I do, but I was forced to do it while editing the video.

Luckily, it wasn't as bad as I was afraid it would be. It was bearable, for the most part.

A few take aways:
- My setup is good enough for now
- A one hour conversation is not too hard to hold
- Took me around 20 minutes to stop being awkward and loosen up
- I cut Lachlan off a few times, which sucks
