- I want the podcast to sound professional, as if it was syndicated as part of a larger network. Even if it's not, it definitely gets the attention of someone who might otherwise just ignore it. This means that the podcast will need to have:
- Opening Music for the intro, small riffs for the bumpers, and closing music for the outtro. I'd consider creative commons, but I'd be leery of non-commercial or share-alike licenses. Attribution won't be a problem, though.
- Discrete sections, including the opening, commentary, news, main topic, mail, tip, conclusion, and closing.
- A steady release rate, preferably weekly.
- An easily-remembered name.
- A primary domain name (something.com).
- A content-managed website, preferably with a forum and a show notes section.
- Co-hosts with some experience in the fields I'll be covering (dialog sounds more natural than prepared scripts, and it would help to have someone coming from a creative background, as opposed to my extensive Linux background.)
- I want to focus on the audio technologies in Linux. I am comfortable with:
- Jack (for sound channel manipulation)
- Ardour (for recording and mixing)
- LADSPA, LV2, and VST plugins (for audio filtering)
- Jamin (for mastering the final).
- I want to cover topics regarding the professional creative use of Linux. There are a lot of podcasts out there that cover Linux for technicians and business people, I want to focus on the creative tools of Linux. At first, I intend to focus on audio production (such as creating podcasts in Linux... how's that for meta?), but I have spent time getting comfortable with programs in other fields of creative endeavour, such as writing, computer graphics, and video.

Here I am, preparing to begin a podcast from Linux. There are a few things I am sure I want:
