Podcast: First Attempt (Snapshots (Teen Lois): No Good Advice  
Okay, you guys asked for it, here it is.


Actually, this is our first attempt. This is a scene in one of our upcoming oneshots in the Snapshots 'verse, which is also canon for IAL as to Lois' teenage years. The scene Anissa is reading involves Perry and Ella discussing sixteen-year-old Lois after she's gotten her job at the Planet and that Ella is worried about her. Now, this is just a test and we wanted to take the opportunity to use something you've never heard to try it out.

So let us know what you think. :D

Podfic presentation request/suggestions
Hi, Charles here :)

I would like to make a request if that's alright. Could you please post a written version of the fic when you post the podfic? I find it easier and better to read along with the narrator than just listening. I like pictures and music to add to the experience :) Perhaps you can add music to the podcast and pictures to the written fic at the same time. I realize this is rather ambitious, and don't want to seem ungrateful. Ya'll do such a wonderful job already, but since you're branching out, I thought maybe the extra media would be a nice addition :) For the music you might just want it to be background or maybe a sound effect for key areas of the story like a song when Kala sings. On a technical note, the volume was very low. I don't know if that was intentional or not, but it was kind of hard for me to hear.

I'd like to finish by saying I realize ya'll aren't trying to make a radio show, but since this sounded so good, I hope you will consider my thoughts and keep doing what ya'll do so well :)

P.S. I have a copy of "World's Finest Classics Superman with Batman and Robin on Radio" from the Smithsonian Historical Performances collection. If ever you get the chance to hear it, (it sounds like the old George Reeve tv show), it might give ya'll some good ideas :)

Re: Podfic presentation request/suggestions
Wow, those are some pretty good ideas, Charles, but keep in mind that we are just starting out with it. Hopefully we will to the point in which we can do all of the fancy stuff. At this point, we're just lucky if we can find the ON button.

I'm going to take these down for future use and fully intend to look up the radio shows on Thursday.

Thanks, love!

That was quite cool. I have to say I'm not generally used to listening to stories being read out loud but I did enjoy that. Although it gave me kind of a shock when I played it the first time because OMG was your voice clear Anissa, I've only ever heard you on the phone posts and I almost didn't recognize you! Your voice is actually one of the nicest I've heard. (The nicest is of course David Tennant with his natural Scottish accent- seriously I would be happy with a podcast of him reading the phone book...*sigh*)

Hearing things out loud is surprising sometimes as well, apparently I've been pronouncing Lois' last name wrong for a while (hehe, sorry) and you say 'Kala' different from what I thought it was as well, almost like how I'd say the name 'Kayla'. Not that that really has anything to do with the podfic, I just thought it was interesting.

Can't wait for more. *cough*IAL*cough*

Lois: IAL :: Lois Clark :: Kisskalalanekent on April 20th, 2009 05:14 pm (UTC)
I really think it turned out pretty good, especially for a first try. She did incredibly good with little editing. With my luck, I'll be stumbling all over the place when it comes my turn. *facepalm*

Hmmm, now I'd really love to see how everyone thinks things are pronounced. I remember that there were quite a few people that were stunned to realize how Kal's name was said in LS, especially as Clark was one of the ones mispronouncing it!


Clark couldn’t help smiling. “Yes, I’ve seen Kala pout. She’s strong-willed like her mother, too.”

Lucy sighed. “Clark … you’re practically family. Could you please learn how to pronounce the girl’s name?”

“Oh, dear God,” Ron groaned. “Lucy, will you lay off?”

Clark just looked confused. “What? But, I don’t call her Kayla…”

“No, Lois will disembowel anyone who does,” Lucy said with a trace of annoyance. It was obvious she’d given this speech in the past. “But she lets the other slide, I have no idea why. Once my sister crossed the Atlantic, she started letting people call the girl Kalla. It’s Kala. One ‘l’ like the difference between ‘all’ and ‘Al’. Kal-a. Real simple to correct, but she just lets everyone go on mispronouncing it like she doesn’t care.”

Clark felt hot, then icy cold. Kala. Like Kal-El. Oh. My. God. She … she named Kala after me… I wonder if … black hair from the father… I’m not human, another species entirely, could they really be mine? She would’ve told me. She would’ve told me this morning. Lois has no reason to hide that from me if they are mine…

We wrote that after we realized that everyone was saying it wrong. ;) *LOL*

And yes, there are plans to try one of the IAL soon. I'm actually looking forward to doing more. :D

"Kala. Like Kal-El."

Hmmm, that's interesting because I did think it was supposed to be said like Kal-El. Now I'm really interested to see how you pronounce Kal-El because I'm thinking it might be an accent thing as well, I remember the first time I heard someone on Smallville say 'Kara' I was like "OMG, that's how you guys say it?!?!" and that's not an uncommon name over here so I knew how it was pronounced in NZ. (Although I understand why so many people had trouble- Kala does seem like an awkward name when you first see it- no offense (it's better than those stupid names like My'kle (which is supposed to be said like Micheal)(wow, look at these parentheses (can you tell I like them?)))). Okay, I'll stop now (really):P.

Wow, that was great! I really enjoyed hearing Anissa read it - she's got a great voice for it. :D I might end up getting into this podfic thing after all... :))
