LAMBcast #157: Get to Know Your LAMBcasters

by Dylan · March 10, 2013 · Featured, LAMBcast, Podcasts · 4 Comments

interviewIt was just a happy coincidence and/or poor (great?) planning that this show came not only just a week after the Vegas meetup episode, but also happened to feature three people (myself, Jason, and Lindsay) that were there for the meetup.  So the three of us got to know each other a bit more, but to make it more interesting, we were also joined by Nick P. and Jay.  This was an unorthodox show compared to our usual fare, where we’re really only talking about film tangentially, but if you have any interest in getting to know any of us any better, I think you’ll find this an entertaining listen.  It was certainly fun to be a part of, and I hope to do something like it again with some more LAMBcasters..

Also on tap:

* Rants and Raves of the Week
* Name That Film Times Five

A few notes:

* The show can be found, of course, via iTunes – just do a search for “LAMBcast.” Also, I always post a link to the show on the LAMBcast’s Facebook page, and there’s a player there if you’d like to listen online. The direct RSS feed is: http://lambcast.podomatic.com/rss2.xml

* Shows will eventually make their way to the LAMBcast Archives. If you’d ever like to catch up on back episodes, go there.

* If you’re interested, you too can be a LAMBcaster – we love new blood! For more information on the LAMBcast, check out the topic at the LAMB Forums.

The LAMBcast loves feedback, too – if you’d like yours read on a future show, leave it in the comments section at the LAMB. Please visit and like our Facebook page, and finally, we’re on iTunes, and would still love a review, even if it’s a bad one.

Thanks for listening!

    This was a nice episode! I hope you’llmake more of these in the future.
    In the rant and rave discussion there was a lot of talking about commenting. My experience is that there’s a strong connection between how much you comment on other blogs and how many comments you get. And I can’t stress enough how important it is to answer to the comments you get. If no one answers my comments I take it as the blogger didn’t read or didn’t care and I’m very unlikely to bother commenting again.

    • Joel says:

      Agreed! I enjoyed it very much. Those BTS facts were indeed interesting. Just crossing my fingers that no employers were listening in. Hahaha

      As for the commenting part I used to be more of a commenting junkie before when my personal blog where more active then I also had a lot more time to read stuff than I feel I have know. Hence why I don’t comment as often. My take on it is still to leave a comment if I have read something that was worth the time for me.

  2. Dylan Dylan says:

    Very good points on commenting, Jessica. I’d say that those are the two cardinal rules (or guidelines), in fact.

    And yes, I’d like to make more of these shows in the future. I’m very excited to have two new “types” of shows to do regularly, with this and Ask the LAMB. Thought that was a lot of fun, while this is not only fun but also informative.

  3. Dan Heaton says:

    Fun show. Now I really wish that I didn’t have to drop out. It was great to hear more about what some familiar bloggers do when they’re not talking about movies. I’d definitely be interested in joining one of these if it’s done again.

    The commenting discussion was also interesting. I’ve only been doing my blog for two years, but I believe the number of comments is going down overall for blogs. The rise of Twitter is part of it, but I also think the culture is just changing. I can totally sympathize with Jason’s concerns. It’s impossible to predict what will get comments. I’ve gotten a bunch for a really random post and then nothing for one that I feel is my best work. Jessica’s tips are correct and a must for bloggers, but even that isn’t always a guarantee of getting feedback. Like Dylan says in the podcast, there are more blogs to check out, and it’s hard to find the time.
