TFG1MIKE 365 – THE GEEKCAST RADIO NETWORK’S TOP 100 TRANSFORMERS CHARACTERS COUNTDOWN! LISTEN HERE!
Originally what is below was a Facebook post…. I wanted to say more with it, hence why it became this blog post. This is how I finished:
“OK FOLKS… PART 6 IS DONE! I’M CALLING IT NOW my grand total editing time has been 100 hours!”
^^^ That was what I wrote on Facebook after I finished the final episode of our Top 100 Transformers characters countdown! And Now I present you with:
The TFG1Mike Method!
- Getting Transformers Audio Clips (BEFORE Recording the podcasts ever happened)! This including watching all 98 episodes of Generation 1, Beast Wars, Beast Machines, TF Animated, TF Prime, and more of the US Based shows.
Cutting the specific audio clips out of the cartoons. (I recorded entire episodes, then went back in and cut the specific clips out.)
The RECORDING of the podcasts, each session lasted 2-4 hours. (So for the sake of my sanity, let’s say recording took 24 Hours in total for Parts 1-6) <—- this includes preamble before and after the recordings, as well as any breaks in between. :-)
The EDITING OF THE PODCASTS – I know this because I kept track, I’d write down when I started and stopped editing on each episode. PARTS 1-4 in total (including promotion of each podcast episode), was 60 hours of “WORK”.
PART 5: THE TOP TWENTY FIVE FACES OF DARKNESS…… I don’t know WHY, but this one took me the longest. And this is where we get to the GRAND TOTAL OF 100 HOURS of WORKING on these. Part 5 was a 33 hour long editing job over three days. 10 Hours the first day, with taking two or three breaks. In total I actually SAT AT MY DESK on DAY 2, for 13 hours straight, only getting up twice I think….. Day 2 and the THIRTEEN HOURS….. is a bit hazy at this point, AND I didn’t even finish the edit! I got to Numbah 7, and I was so delirious and exhausted, I had to STOP. Because I thought I was messing things up in the editing.
Sooooooo…… Part 5 went into DAY 3, and after all said and done there were extra hours of work on it…. But I got it done. We are at THE END OF THE LOW ROAD now, So… WHAT A SUMMER OF 2021, WITH A VERY TRANSFORMATIVE EXPERIENCE, one that BROKE ME mentally on podcasting all together. However in the long run I had fun, and I have a piece of recorded media THAT I AM PROUD OF!

When I say “THIS WAS “WORK””… I had the time, I am a podcast producer, and someone who wanted to be the one to get every little detail of the final product just right. I think it came out pretty damn good! So I’m not trying to complain, or overexaggerate what my part in this project was. I’m just recalling, and remembering the process I went through for you the listeners to hear our latest TOP 100 Project! Here at The GeekCast Radio Network, We each have a part to play in the creation of the content that we produce. Everything with the numbers that OptimusSolo did in order for us to get the actual revealed list, everything Steve/Megatron did with the graphics, and the voiceover work, every. single. co-host, and every. single. contributor should be proud of this. No. Matter. What! THANK YOU ALL!!!! TILL ALL ARE ONE!
