Hey guys! A couple of friends and I decided we wanted to start a podcast together, and we've come up with it! Here's some of our info:
So the main selling point of our podcast, as opposed to Pokemon Podcast's It's Super Effective or the Bouncing Wailords, is that we are the more competitive Pokemon oriented podcast, whereas ISE focuses a lot on general Pokemon and the TCG, while BW focuses on the anime. StriatonRadio also has elements of the anime, and general Pokemon topics, but two of our most popular segments, Random Encounter and Battle Subway, have heavy Competitive influences.
The Podcast was originally started up by Justin (me), David (Tala-) and Robert (pokeotaku). However, we eventually got on some guests who became permanent members. Ren (Renasaur), Kristina, and Omen (SilentOmen). Omen has become StriatonRadio's unofficial Public Relations Officer.
A normale épisode of StriatonRadio generally looks like this.
1. Intro - Basically we introduce the podcast, and the people on the episode.
2. Pokemon Jokes - Tell a quick, "punny," joke related to Pokemon.
3. News - Cover some recent news, both to keep listeners updated in case they missed something and to provoke any conversation that may spur from the news.
4. Random Encounter - We talk about a randomly selected Pokemon. Usually we cover basic facts on the Pokemon (most of it useless) and then we start the Competitive breakdown.
5. Break - Play some cool music. Nice break from the talking.
6. Lab Report - We as a podcast talk about some random topic on Pokemon, ranging from Competitive Pokemon stuff to just general Pokemon stuff.
7. PokeNav - We randomly select a city in the games, and we talk about it.
8. Teachy TV - We talk about the latest episode of the anime in America. That way, for those who want to watch the anime, the episode will already be out and they'll have seen it, so they won't get it spoiled, and at the same time, if someone doesn't want to watch the oddities that some people have problems with in the anime, they can at least know what's going on.
9. Author's Cafe - An old segment that we don't usually cover anymore, but it's still there in the event that we have a cool fan fic to talk about.
10. Passerby Analytics - The cast asks a weekly question that the listeners will hopefully answer, to be read on the next episode.
11. Trainer Journals - The people on the podcast tell stories about their current Pokemon adventures. Basically just what are people up to Pokemon-wise.
12. Plugs - The people on the podcast plug themselves, letting listeners know where they can get into contact with the podcasters.
13. Podcast Plugging - Brief talk on site stuff, mostly where to find the site on the various social networks.
We also do Battle Subway episodes, where the listeners submit their teams to the podcast, and we go over them on the podcast, making suggestions or giving praises.
The episodes do tend to be somewhat lengthy, but that's the beauty of modern day technology. There's a pause button.
