Applications for the podcast are now closed.
I've taken all of your availabilities into consideration, and I've assigned each of you to one of the two interview calls. (The first time was unpopular, so I've removed it.) Once again, all times are in CST.
2am the 4th of February:
6pm the 4th of February:
I'll be contacting each of you to organise our Skype calls. If you haven't done so already and have achieved Regular status on the forum, it would make my life a lot easier if you joined the Kazamatsuri.org Skype chat, so I can easily find you and add you to the interview groups. If you're not a regular yet, don't stress, just send me a PM or I'll contact you myself and we can work it out.
A few notes. I've included the previous members of the Kazamatsuri.org podcast here, despite already knowing them well enough to not need them to do an interview. Regardless, I'd still like them to be a part of the interview process so I can ask them questions to help determine whether I'd like them to be involved in future podcast episodes or not. They'll also just be around to help guide the interview process as members who already know the ins and outs of the podcast. Keep in mind, just because they've already had plenty of time on the podcast, that doesn't automatically mean they won't be in future episodes - they have as much a right to join the crew as any of you! So in other words, if you want to be on the podcast, they're the standard you have to meet!
Another note. There are one or two members who expressed interest who have yet to give me their availability for the group interviews. While applications are closed, I'm willing to grant them a little leniency if they are able to provide me with their availability with ample notice before the recordings start. If that's you, then please let me know your availability asap and I'll try to slot you in with the others!
And to everybody who was interested in applying, applications may be closed, but don't be too discouraged. I encourage members who are eager to participate in the podcast to express their interest here regardless, in case any future openings in the podcast do arise. We'll be keeping an eye on this topic, so feel free to state your case, and who knows, you might be invited to an interview in the future, with the possibility of joining us on the podcast!
I think that covers about everything. To all who applied, I look forward to seeing you in the interviews! If you have any questions or concerns, don't be afraid to message me and I'll do whatever I can to help.
