Frequently Asked Questions
Why are you making this podcast?
We’ve been trying to do something creative together for a really long time (by the way, if you’re interested in some preliminary art for a couple of not-entirely-fleshed-out webcomic ideas, drop us a bell). This year, now that Tash has started working full time, it seemed like an especially good idea to have a project separate from that. And so, many Saturday morning coffees later, we were ready to start making Heaps Funny But!
How do you make the podcast?
We generate sounds with our vocal cords/respiratory system to make words in Australian English and then we send recordings of those words to the internet.
No, I mean, what technology do you use to make it?
We record each episode a couple of weeks in advance using Tash’s very tired old laptop. Yes ,we use the built in microphone. Yes, that’s one of the big no-nos when it comes to podcasting. If you have such a problem with it, why don’t you buy us a better one?
The episodes are edited by Tash using Audacity. And that’s it. Not too fancy but it gets the job done.
Why do you both suck so much?
Why are you both so awesome?
Tash, your voice sounds hot, would you go on a date with me?
Nope. Well… maybe. Are you hot? How do you feel about chocolate-themed dates with very little hanky-panky? What are you views on feminism and intersectionality? Tweet me.
Jam, your voice sounds terrible, would you not go on a date with me?
Nope. Enforced dates for everyone!
Why don’t you have transcripts of your episodes?
We’ve considered the idea of transcripts in the past – we know that they make the podcast way more accessible. However this little project is very much a little something on the side for us at the moment. The time it would take for us to go through and write out a transcript of each episode would probably at least double the amount of time posting an individual episode takes. Because we get no tangible rewards from the podcast, it’s not currently a feasible use of our time.
Should we ever become rich and famous podcasters though, you can be sure we’ll see what we can do!
What would you do in a zombie apocalypse?
Probably not survive. Neither of us are particularly well suited to any society other than our modern, convenient one.
