TS Podcast After Hours #01 – The Pilot

TS-AH-LogoI am happy to announce a spinoff series of the Tokyo Swallows Podcast, which I’m calling the TS Podcast After Hours. The main podcast with Dave and Chris isn’t going anywhere, but I’ve started this spinoff to cover topics that aren’t necessarily suited to the monthly roundup format of the main podcast. One of the main driving forces behind this project is my desire to improve my audio editing skills and this project will allow me to work on various skills. This first episode is a simple edited conversation, but I hope to improve the production as I learn new tricks. I hope this project will help people pass time during the offseason, and Dan and I would appreciate any comments or requests for future episodes!
