Podfic from the [community profile] chromatic_podfic community is now being posted! Go check it out!

I dipped my toes into the waters of podficcing and recorded a few.

I did [archiveofourown.org profile] glass_icarus' Filial Daughters, a fic for Saving Face (podfic, apologies for my terrible American-accented Mandarin), as well as my own The Journey West (podfic).

And! The most fun part was teaming up with [personal profile] thistleingrey and [personal profile] troisroyaumes to do my 21st Century Girls (podfic), in which we got to sing to cheesy girl band music, pretend to be characters pretending to be Sailor Senshi Zodiac Senshi, and act out dramatic meetings under floating sakura petals! Tari also has a making of post. Ahaha, I hope it is even a percentage as fun listening to as it was to record!

I didn't really realize before recording this that people generally prefer a single reader and sometimes music and sometimes not, ditto with authors recording their own works. Ah well? On the other hand, I think doing my first podfic with friends made me less embarrassed to emote and act out stuff and be completely dorky, which hopefully helped in the other two I did afterward. Also, I talk really really fast!

And if anyone has feedback re: the audio quality for the Saving Face and American Gods podfic, it would be highly appreciated! This podfic thing is very fun to do, and now I have several more lined up that I think would be incredibly fun, but I wanted to see if the audio quality of my current microphone is okay, or if I should wait to get a nicer microphone before recording more.
