Tell us what you think of TPP!

Survey_Promo_2015Hey listeners of the Three Patch Podcast! We want to hear from you, and we’ve set up a survey to help you do it. Whether you’ve heard every episode or only check out the interesting bits, it would be awesome if you clicked through to tell us something of:

  • Who you are
  • What you do in fandom
  • What you think about the podcast
  • What you want to hear next
  • And who really buys the milk for 221b

The survey is anonymous, should take 10 to 15 minutes to fill out, and at the end you can sign up for giveaway of some awesome Sherlock-themed toilet spray by Foxestacado (which totally works–con bathrooms have never smelled so sweet.)

We’ll be sharing your answers to many questions, and the more fans that participate, the more we will all know about our community. It’s open until June 30th, but there is no time like the present, so check it out today!

    To be honest, there are segments that are a real turn-off for me, but I know they’re popular with others so I’m ok just skipping over them. Thanks so much for the timestamps that help me enjoy the segments I love.

    The one thing I beg of you, and this will benefit all listeners, is to run your audio file through Levelator before compressing and publishing it. Once the file’s been compressed and published I can’t Levelate it for myself. Your audio levels vary widely, with each person’s audio at an entirely different level. I’ve had to purchase a specialized podcast player that normalizes voice levels, but I’m sure not everyone who wants to listen can do that. On the other hand, Levelator is free software that is very simple to use and would benefit everyone.

    Thanks for considering my suggestion. Please know that I love your show … if I didn’t I’d just unsub without bothering to tell you why. Love you guys!

      Hi Karell,

      Thank you for your feedback.

      On the topic of time stamps: Based on a suggestion from the forementioned survey, we’ve just changed the ordering of the show notes so it should be even easier to find the segments you want to hear.

      On the topic of levels within episodes: We do (usually) use levelator for individual segments, but it is not applied to the whole podcast as the algorithm does horrible things to music. This podcast is assembled by a large team of volunteers with a wide range of audio production experience, and the effort to improve the audio quality is an ongoing process of sharing methods and knowledge as we go. Audacity’s lack of native RMS estimator made it impossible to set segments to a standard level, but we have recently found a relevant plug-in and are in the process of establishing relevant protocols.

      Thanks for sticking with us!
