    You've no doubt heard of GBAtemp's critically acclaimed podcast, the Tempcast, a weekly program we produce to discuss gaming, homebrew, and all the other things which matter to our community. Now is your chance to contribute!

    We are seeking new members who are interested in participating in these discussions on at least a semi-regular basis.

    Requirements:
    -You are interested in discussing gaming and other topics relevant to GBAtemp
    -You have a decent mic and aren't recording in an area with ridiculous background noise (on top of a moving train, in the front row of a heavy metal concert, in the pits of hell)
    -Your schedule allows at least a few Friday evenings (~7-12 EDT) each month for recording, which generally take about two hours

    If you qualify:
    You'll need to send us a clip, it should be at least a minute long talking about whatever you desire, preferably something that you're knowledgeable about. Be aware that we'll use this clip to determine your mic quality, charisma, insight, comprehensibility, and so one, so make it good (use bullet points if necessary, not a script). You can record yourself using Vocaroo, Audacity, the Windows default sound recorder, or whatever recording software that tickles your fancy. All that matters is that an attachment or link ends up in the inbox of 'gbatempcast(AT)gmail(DOT)com' with the subject line "Podcast Crew".

    Don't be shy, we'd love to listen to your beautiful voice.

    Once I get a better mic, I'll try out. It was pretty fun being on the "Lost" podcast. Gah it took Nick forever to do the Mario intro.

    I would be interested, but I am a very shy person and lack a good mic.

    Go for it, you don't need a crazy expensive mic to sound good. Check here for some ~$20 headsets.
    Well one of those things is easily fixable :P.

    At least once a month, the most important thing being that you could tell us when you will be available a week in advance.

    Hmm, okay. I am very interested. Do you still want me to send you a clip? You've heard me before, but I can send a clip if you'd like.

    Is it mandatory that it be 7 EDT? I could manage friday, but only around 7 PST. (I think that's 10 EDT).

    The time is two hours sometime between 7-12, if you could make it at 10-12 that would be fine.

    I'd absolutely would LOVE to be on the tempcast, but since you guys are tedious motherfuckers and always record in 3-4 am in my area, I must ignore this great proposition.

    I would probably do this. My VOIP headset should suffice, I think.
