Babylon Podcast #132: Rumors, Bargains and Lies (Season 4)

Welcome to Show #132!

Jeffrey called in a voicemail to ask folks to take a moment to remember Norwegian B5 fan Vidar Nilsen, who was also a contributor to Galactic Gateway, and there’s a forum thread where you can post memories and condolences.

Deep Geeking: Tim and Summer chat about “Rumors, Bargains and Lies”. Everyone on B5’s playing an angle, but who’s really running the game and who’s being played?

  1. Please know that what I am about to say comes from a fan, not just of B5, but also this show.

    This was, without a doubt, the hardest to listen to show I have yet to hear. Summer’s audio was either distorted and loud or too soft to make out, and it cycled erratically between the two. Tim’s audio sounded like it was coming over an AM radio broadcast with static and other distractions every time he spoke. The lead-in and promos all sounded fine which lets me know it wasn’t my player or headphones that were at fault.
    Guys, if you can’t put out an episode of quality for whatever reason, wait until you CAN before doing so. To be clear, I am speaking SOLELY of the audio quality, not the content on offer. If quality requires a delay, then we will just have to cope. You should bear in mind that not only are the listeners who are current will suffer if you put out a technically sub-par show, but that all these shows are part of a larger archive that hopefully will be available as long as there are B5 fans.

    Thanks for all your hard work! See you beyond the Rim.


  2. We sometimes have to be able to record with me using Skype to call in because it’s a very long drive from where I live to the studio.

    We don’t know why Jeffrey sounds good on Skype and my connection doesn’t.

  3. Hi, Summer. If you use a router, you might try static port forwarding and turn off 80 and 443 for alternates (Options, Connections). That’s helped my Skype sound.

    If I’m sick, I like Deconstruction because of the enormous scope — makes the sickness seem small and brief — and also Sleeping in Light.
