A daily podcast with 500+ episodes in Brazilian Portuguese
Me 😬 and some guests in selected episodes
Writing, speaking & audio editing.
As a personal project, I decided to publish bite-sized podcast episodes in a daily basis through my year. The format changed a little as time passed, but the project lived until August 12th 2023.
The format was simple: any person could ask any question anonymously or not through a form in a website. I would get these questions, list them, and answer one by one in a mini podcast — 5 to 10 minutes per episode, tops.
That fueled 525 episodes with themes ranging from polyamory, through communism, to food options in Germany.
I recorded with family, friends, and professional contacts, but most of it is me and a microphone — and an automated editing workflow.
The podcast is recorded in Brazilian Portuguese and still can be listened to at Spotify Podcasts — it has an RSS feed also, for other podcast players.
The current art was created by the artist Silva João, with whom I published the comic Combo Breaker (read for free)
The cover was made by the tattoo artist Janaína Sirena
There wasn't a cover until the illustrator RAVAEL (aka msrapoo) gave me one!
For the questions
This project is also under the "coding" category in my portfolio for a simple reason: building the script used in Audacity to basically automate my editing process was a coding effort.
I even researched how to do it in a CLI, but the results were not that good, so I stayed with Audacity's macro functions.
