Here you will find the MP3 files of the Echo Chamber podcast!

When TVTropes released a webseries, as a heavy lurker (jojoscotia) I watched it instantly, and every time a new episode came out.
Not content with merely watching the program, I read the blog, the forum thread, the tropes page, and then, when I discovered it, added Zack’s Character on Twitter. Much to my surprise, he added me back, and then tweeted at me. A few days later, Dana Shaw eamiled me, told me she was a KoLer, and would I like to interview the three main cast for Radio KoL. I did a little dance of joy and then said yes.

So, below are links to the MP3s of two interviews. The first, with Tom and Zach in-character. The second, in three parts, is a full interview with the cast, with many hints for the future!

 

The Echo Chamber interview MP3s are below:

Cast Interview Part 3

I have to apologise for my mic quality. I can’t afford a muffler and I was too excited to remember to point my face away from the microphone. But it’s perfectly audible, and Tom, Zack, and Dana are hilarious!

My first memory?

Age 3: Woodchips. A park. The ground. Excitement. Safety.
My mum tells me this is a trip to Edinburgh Zoo when I was about 3. I loved the woodchips, and was not bothered about the playpark things like the slide and the swings.

More memories.
Before I was 4: A double bed in a medium-sized room. Lying in bed with my mum being silly. David comes in, and I show him how I can wink. He shows me he can do it with either eye. I bury my face in the pillow and force my eye closed, showing him the results. He’s so silly, I’m so proud. I then taught myself to wink with either eye, much like I would again in primary three, but with fingers.
Before I was 4: A sofa, in a large room. It’s a fairly bare room, and I am sitting on a three-seater sofa across from a TV eating cerial. This is all of this memory. Not what was on TV, not what was happening at the time, just sitting there.
Before I was 5: Christmas morning. A huge tree (It’s not, but I was small), a me-sized perfect wicker chair, with a giant teddybear in it. he had a chain. It was love at first sight, and the joy I felt then is still in the back of my head, wrapped up in this memory like a special present. I don’t know when, but he came to be known as Mr Ted, and was my constant companion for about a decade.
Before I was 5: A kitchen. A birthday. A Postman Pat cake. Candles.

 

I have one other memory from this time, but it’s probably a bit long and I’ve run out of time. Next time!
