What does it take?

   So I totally failed. No date has been confirmed. I'll be trying to get a hold of them today to set a date though so all is not over as of yet!
   I've become a bit lost in the organization of whatever we are to be. It's easy to see we need the founders/co-owners, editing and we can all be producers on some level... But what else? Do we need to decide who's going to handle the online marketing? Should there be more than one of us? Probably, seeing how small we are. I think a lot of these questions can be answered once we sit down.
   The plan so far is to get everyone in one room, get the mic settings right, and record us as we discuss these exact issues. Every time we get together to discuss it I'll record the sessions and save them. I'll use these meetings to create the Let's Make A Podcast? podcast. It will be similar to Start Up (a podcast by Gimlet about Alex Grunberg(sp?) about him starting up a media company) but instead of a project by an all ready known creator, it would follow our group. Who has almost NO clout. Seems legit right? Even if we fail, it should do well because it's the internet. People love watching others fail.
   So what does it take to create content? It's a hard thing to find tips for. Crafting a program for entertainment/education seems like a delicate art (unless you go to YouTube) and just jumping into the world of online media seems like a naive thing to do. But who cares!? It's the internet.
