Cobbled together by Gazimoff from Mana Obscura and Pewter from The ‘mental Shaman, along with some Skype and a bit of technical dohickery, The Obscurecast is a weekly creation that discusses World of Warcraft. We aim to provide an alternative and interesting viewpoint on the week’s gaming news, as well as a weekly topic and a roundup of the various in-game happenings.
All this gets bundled up in our own blend of humour, wit and banter in order to produce a (usually) one hour long show. We also have the occasional guest to expand upon particular topics. Always random, often chaotic and sometimes even funny.
Season One set out to answer some interesting questions. Can you be friends with someone you’ve never met in person? Can you produce a weekly Skype based music podcast? Hosts Jen (in San Luis Obispo, California, USA), and Colin (in Bath, Somerset, UK), believed the answer to both those questions was “yes”.
With over 10 years of podcasting experience between them and having made frequent appearances on each others individual shows it only seemed a matter of time before they would collaborate on a more permanent basis.
They originally ‘met’ when Colin became a regular commenter, contributor and listener to the Hyper Nonsense podcast that Jen was producing with her husband Shawn. He remained a listener until that show came to an end in 2009 and continued listening to all of the other podcasts that Shawn and Jen have produced since. In turn Jen and Shawn became the most regular listeners and commenters on Colin’s Ourobouros Podcast and remain so to this day.
When Dawnforge Productions started, Jen was the obvious choice to produce the music show. Having worked on All Things Azeroth and having produced the Inside My Head music podcast for 3 years it was a no brainer. In search of a co-host she contacted Colin. He jumped at the chance to do a regular podcast with Jen and the rest, as they say, is history.
Season Two set out to answer some new questions. Can the show work with just one host? How does one make the shows name “Halfway Around the World”, relevant without two hosts, who live “halfway around the world from each other”?
After much consideration, Jen decided to take on this challenge. The solution was to have each episode feature bands and artists who all came from one, specific, country. This kept the “around the world” concept in the podcast. It also made Halfway Around the World a little bit like “Dawnforge Radio”.
Season Three In the middle of season 2, Jen announced on the show that she was looking for a co-host for season 3. Nathan jumped at the chance and immediately left a comment that he was interested. When Jen laid out the guidelines for what she wanted in a new co-host and asked for email from anyone interested, Nathan sent in his email and by the end of October was contacted that he had been chosen for the spot. Jen and Nathan recorded a test podcast in November for National Podcast Post Month with the theme of “positive music”. Over the next month they started throwing out ideas for themes for season 3 and the concept of “opposites” came up. The first episode was recorded January 13th with the topic of Metal songs and non-Metal songs, but the theme for the season was still up in the air. By episode two, Nathan and Jen had brainstormed several opposite themes and decided that they would have enough material to adopt the theme for season 3.
