Recorded at: Nick and Benji's
Nick and Benji are our regular podcast presenters. The podcast itself has been around for a number of years, with a number of presenters, but Nick seems to have stuck with it the longest, mainly because he's been with Big Finish since the very beginning, back in 1998.
Through the magic of the internet, Nick and Benji record in their respective home studios, chatting over Zoom, then the two recordings are married up in post-production. It is this method of recording that made Nick realize that the 2020 pandemic lockdown would not be a barrier to Big Finish continuing its full-cast drama recordings. Hence, during lockdown, Big Finish's actors recorded at home, sending their recordings to the sound designers to be cleaned-up, standardised and edited together. Various enhancements of this method have been put into practice since then.
If you haven't yet heard the Big Finish Podcast, here are some of the other themes and conversations that have featured over the years... Field Marshal Montgomery, the 'Singing Man' from the 1950s, catchphrases like 'Stop Don't Move!', 'Buck up!' and 'Don't tell my trousers!' and much, much more... (frighteningly more). Some of them return from time to time, but who knows what further nonsense the future will offer.
There are, of course, lashings of behind-the-scenes and upcoming news items, as well as fulsome comments by our loyal listeners, via the Listeners' Emails address firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Big Finish Podcast is released every week, on Sunday. You can download or stream it from its place on the home page or catch it here in its official Podcast Range.
You can, of course, subscribe to it through iTunes or through your usual podcast app.
