Statement of Purpose

This community is for podfic meta -- what's an effective way to use music, are certain stories more podficcable than others, what tagging data is good and where should it go, for instance -- and podfic reviews. The goal is not to come to a single consensus about what makes a good podfic, but to articulate and debate aesthetic theories about podfic, in the same way that we articulate and debate aesthetic theories about television shows, music, movies, and, to a sadly lesser extent, fanfiction and other fanactivity.

This community is not for concrit or recommendations; those are valuable, but they also lead the discussion to a really producer-centered place. This comm is for those who like meta discussion and podfic, without regard to whether they read, edit, or listen.

The existence of this community may just be the impetus I need to transfer my thoughts on 'Podfic: What Works For Me' from my paper journal to the virtual kind.

Oh, OK. That's good to know. Consider me out of public entries then (sorry!)

How do you feel about non-native speakers recording a podfic?

Like, I'm playing with the thought of doing this fic, but English is not my native tongue. I don't think my pronunciation sucks *that* much, but still...

I like it! There are lots of established podficcers who have English as a second or other language. Individuals can be picky about accents - lots of people won't listen to me reading for American fandoms, and I can't argue with that, but then other people are happy enough to ignore my British accent. Some people will find your accent distracting, others won't mind, others will actively love it.

Hey, so there's a podfic conversation going on here that I've been following all day. I'm not sure if it counts as meta or feeding the trolls at this point so I thought I might mention it here at let someone not as close to it as I am decide :-/ and possibly make a post about it to the comm.
