The International Kit - A new podcast for the Mechanical Keyboards community - Episode 1


#1

Welcome to The International Kit, a new podcast about mechanical keyboards incorporating a European perspective!

Hosted by @egla and @kwerdenker, we want to bring something a bit different from the existing options to the community. The International Kit is an audio only podcast focusing on one topic per episode which we’ll talk more in-depth about. We also incorporate the European perspective on things, since we feel this is a point of view currently underrepresented. Hopefully more often than not, we’ll be supported in this by a guest or two and for our very first episode we were lucky enough to have the well known @Jae-3soteric join us as we talk a bit about himself, the behemoth of a keyboard the H7 and how it is running a GB for the first time. Jae was a real blast to talk to and his insights into what makes a successful GB could be valuable for anyone who might plan to do something similar in the future.

Since we’re still waiting on Apple to review us for distribution on their podcast directory but didn’t want to postpone putting out this episode any longer, you can currently listen to it by either getting it directly from our site here or by subscribing to our RSS feed in your podcast or reader app of choice.

We’d be happy to see you on our Discord server and talk with you about the episode, the project or anything else keyboard related. You can also find us on Twitter under @the_int_kit or Reddit as /u/international_kit. We also plan to do some keyboard related streams/ videos in the upcoming future and for that were are on Youtube and Twitch.

Thank you for your interest and we’re looking forward to all your comments, suggestions and other input!
