# 1 PvP Podcast Idea/Casting!
04-23-2013, 11:37 PM
I have a dream!

Well, more of a stupid idea that won't go away, but it's been nagging me for a while now that there is very little radio content on Trek Radio, or a podcast that discusses the meat and bones about builds, ships, and the mechanics of STO.

So, I would like to start now.

However, I would not want to do it alone. First of all, I have somewhat limited experience with technical of podcasting. Second, I work better and am more humorous when i have another personality I can bounce off of. So I would like to know if anyone form the PVP community would like to join me. Anyone from Bootcamp or from any of the big PVP fleets would be welcome. Basic qualifications are

1) Being a STO PVP player, but also players other content.
2) Detailed knowledge of STO mechanics and has decent build.
3) Humorous
4) Hard core (but level headed) Trekkie. (By level headed, i mean that you have seen alot fo the shows, all the movies, can quote the ranks and positions of all the members of all the crews... yet you recognize the limitations of the game and how it cannot represent everything in game.
4) Good radio voice/personality

However, the specifics of the taste of show will be up to negotiation once we have some host available. Obviously alot of this will be based on personalities match and how everything works out, so we will see.

Reply below if you have anything to add or if you want to "audition". I will also be contacting the Bootcamp crew about this for a possible syndication or partnership.

Answering on behalf of Boot Camp, I will say that this is a really cool idea. If you are interested in discussing how we can partner together on this, send me an email (sargon.priorityone@gmail.com). Additionally, the leadership team of Boot Camp will have a meeting this Saturday on the Boot Camp TS at the following times:

5.4.2013 (Sat., May 4th, 2013): 10pm/2200 CEST (Berlin)/4pm EDT (Boston)/3pm CDT (Minneapolis)

I can't make you any promises or commitments at this point, since our primary goal will remain our monthly classes and seminars, but I do think that many of our goals are similar.

You are correct that there are no shows that deal with these topics exclusively. Priority One has a really interesting segment called, "Field Notes," which has probed PvP at various points.

http://priorityonepodcast.com/

In fact, the Priority One team has often used Boot Camp coaches to host these sessions. Regulus, Pug01, Pax, Eryon, Shane, and even myself (they were scraping the bottom of the barrel to be sure when they asked me) have/will be involved in Field Notes. You might consider listening to these segments to get ideas.

If you decide to go forward with this, I urge you to consider the following:

- Try to include as many fleets as possible. Make it an inter-fleet "circus" that revels in diversity and that stands firmly upon the grounds of neutrality. You will (1) win more supporters to your cause in this way and, if done correctly, (2) perhaps help to mend old wounds. I'm not saying you should avoid controversy, only that you should navigate its waters with wisdom and with an eye toward the greater good of the community.

- Avoid the temptation to cover inter-fleet politics and gossip. Foster friendship, teamwork, and community.

- Related to this last point, try to avoid alienating fleets and individuals by classifying consoles, play styles, powers, etc. as as "P2W," "cheesy," "no skill," etc. IIf this community's manifold discussions about the problems with STO PvP have demonstrated anything it is that there is no Archimedean point from which to develop an "ethics" of PvP. We have to work with what we have, and there are many different views on what is "appropriate." Respect the pluralism.

Awesome to hear such a positive response to this. I have already began email contact with Sargon and will be attending that TS meeting on Saturday. As for the cohost idea, I will need to discuss this with Bootcamp and see where they stand on it and if they have any coaches that are also decent radio personalities. But otherwise, I'll keep an eye out for anyone who expresses interest.

Thanks guys! Lets get this things started.
