Real Talk Javascript

Official Description

Real Talk Javascript is:

A weekly podcast where we tackle the challenges facing Web developers today and invite expert guests on the show to share their experience solving concrete problems while building real Web applications.

Sample Episodes

How It Works

  • John Papa schedules interviews with his 1-2 co-hosts plus a guest.
  • They record from wherever they are in the world using Zencastr, which automatically records each person on their computer so you maintain as high a quality audio as possible.
  • John sends me the individual audio tracks over a shared Google Drive with folders organized by episode.
  • I edit out pauses, tech issues, coughs, and other minor touch ups of the conversation. (John and crew use a shorthand of saying “Edit Point” into the recording if they want to speak to me or signal, not surprisingly, an edit point. It works great!)
  • While I’m editing, I’m also putting together the show notes for the episode including episode description, relevant links discussed or mentioned, and timecode / chapter markers for listeners to be able to skip around if needed.
  • John leaves clear edit spots for me to insert one or two sponsor reads – also shared via Google Drive.
  • I export it all mixed down to MP3, set up a new episode in their podcast host Simplecast, and put the episode in draft mode for John or myself to publish on the approved day and time.
  • We track everything that happens on the show with a simple Google Sheets spreadsheet, including which sponsors are needed, recording dates, episode titles, and publishing dates.
