Hey still looking for people to be on the show? If so I am always up for it as long as its like at a reasonable time for the east coast.

Still looking for topics? How about the following
New school year are you excited or stressing
Video games that you cant wait for in the new couple of months
New concerts that you are or would like to go to
Conventions that you have or are going to

Actually, I had meant to post here a few days ago with a question directed at Staff.
Since Nox is no longer about to do the radio segment, will you be finding a new host anytime soon to give it another go, or will the segment be dropped, or will it depend on some factors amongst the forum community?
Meh.

I hope they keep it going, and if it comes to the point where they may stop the show due to not having a host, I would be happy to help in some way, even if its just editing the shows audio.

Whatever you guys would like to do. None of the admins have the time to run this, so it's completely member generated. If someone really wants to step up and take over, than discuss it and figure it out.

To add to Spaz's note, there unfortunately there hasn't been any plans to revive FTR since Nox's leave, and finding a trusty, capable host that can dedicate time to planning to each radio segment will be a lengthy process that would have to involve discussion with a staff member in voice so we can figure out who can pick up as host from there.
I'm willing to act as a mediator of sorts, possibly even come up with some sort of interview in voice, along with any other staff members who'd be willing to help.

Anyone who's interested in picking up the job as host is more than welcome to message any staff member if interested, I'm sure we can work something out if we find enough interest in participation as well as a new host. Keep in mind though that being a host requires a good mindset when speaking; think about how a radio host would sound like, in other words. You'd also need Skype, since that's what we traditionally use to host calls.

Edit: Split posts to General Discussion thread

I hope someone can host because I have 0 idea what it would take how much it would cost etc. And with me getting my new charity idea off the ground and moving back to ohio soon I just cant host.

Well there's really no cost, it's just a recording of a Skype call with several users at one time; everyone would just require a headset to speak with. The recording will then be edited by the host, then given to an admin to be submitted for everyone else to listen to

Ok skype recording seems simple but still I have 0 idea of how editing would work lol. I thought it was something completly different of how to host it. Still I bet that the editing could take 3+ hours.

I'll be willing to edit the recording if the host can't do it.

Its a pain really. I would be more than happy to host the show, but diffrent factors would make it hard for me. One, Im not even sure if I would be allowed to host because Im fairly new to the site. Two, the time it would take to organize and get a rough script put together would be hard with all the stuff I have to do in the new school year. Three, and probably most important, nobody in my family knows Im furry, and it would be hard to do everything while there out. Especially, pre-determained events such as the show itself, because it would be awqward if I got into a conversation about the fandom with my Mom standing outside my room... I have all the basic equitment required, and I know how to use it all, but if I were to do it all, I would need someone at my side to help me out when I couldnt do something.

I could host it with ease! I have the software to record and edit the call, a whole list of ideas for many future episodes, and I love skype parties. I'm always glad to help the FT community with ANYTHING it needs.

:D Have you contacted a staff member yet about it? And as I said in the previous posts, I would be happy to help if you need it, I just couldnt run the show all by myself.

I think having help would be a great thing to have! Because it would be hard to run FTR single-handedly.
