Episode 1

So, this is our first attempt at doing a “real podcast”. Obviously, we’re still getting some stuff worked out audio-wise: Brice’s horrible mic, Stanley’s Rickety behind chair, and Aaron apparently wanting to include the sounds of Normal, Illinois in the background of his audio. And someone who just WON’T STOP CLICKING THEIR MOUSE! I think we got most of the stuff edited out, but it’s not like we’re professionals. We’ll get better as we go….maybe…we hope…

Anyway, this first podcast starts our “Music Madness” tournament where we pick between head-to-head pairings of songs that were released (or became popular) during 2012 (and early 2013). The songs are broken up into 4 regions (just like the NCAA tournament). The first episode starts in the Northern region:

#9 One Direction – Live While We’re Young

#5 Taylor Swift – We are never ever getting back together
