04 Jason Magbanua – [email protected] Chat

about this episode: who doesn’t know our guest for our 4th installment?  Jason Magbanua is notably the only Filipino wedding supplier thus far accorded a “celebrity status” which was, in a way, confirmed by this article on trending celebrity dads based on Google Philippines’ search data.  In this epsiode, JMag recounts his beginnings as a struggling videographer a little over decade ago, to his journey to where he is in his craft and career today.Although we have extensively covered Jason’s history and influence among his fellow videographers in the [email protected] VideoFest – BIO: Jason Magbanua, it is still nice to hear the story straight from the guy. :)This was the easiest episode to edit.  There was hardly a need to splice anything with a guest like him.  Seeing how comfortably Benz and Jason were seated on the couch in the [email protected] Chatroom gives a glimpse of the casual and cozy setting we do out interview/kwentuhan.:) postscript: Right-click this link to save Episode 4. subscribe to [email protected] Chat via iTunes to automatically download our latest episodes. visit and LIKE the [email protected] Chat page in FB for related updates. 🙂

03 Teddy Manuel – [email protected] Chat

In [email protected] Chat by weddingLeave a Comment

about this episode: for our third run into podcasting, we moved from a coffee shop in Thompson Square in Morato, into the basement of the same complex where Mark Laccay’s studio is located. Here was where we recorded our interview with florist/event stylist, Teddy Manuel. Being witness to our casual chat with Jong in the cofeeshop, he was quite intimidated seeing the studio setup. The cozy couch is where Benz & Teddy sat, while I was relegated in a corner sitting on a monobloc. Not that I mind. I just wanted to paint a clearer picture for our listeners. :DWhen it was decided that the studio would be the permanent location of each podcast recording, Mark nicknamed the place as ‘[email protected] Chatroom.’  Witty and very internet age.

02 John Mateos Ong – [email protected] Chat

In [email protected] Chat by wedding_blogLeave a Comment

about this episode: for our sophomore outing, we invited our friend, John Mateos Ong (founder, ImagineNation Photography and Wang Video) to be our guest.  As we wanted to avoid you guys hearing our baby cry in the background like what happened in our pilot episode, we decided to chat and record in a coffeeshop for the feel and ambiance.BIG MISTAKE!The sound of the blenders and the chatting in another table made the sound quality suffer.  Benz was telling me that listening to the raw file was distracting with all the noise.  Props to our Mark Laccay (our sound engineer/editor) who did wonders to make our voices standout with all the noise in the background. 🙂 postscript: Right-click this link to save Episode 2.

01 Threelogy – [email protected] Chat

Welcome to the pilot episode of [email protected] Chat – The WeddingsAtWork.com Podcast! What’s a podcast?  Basically it’s talk radio on the internet except that the audio content is downloaded instead of streamed live. Why a podcast?  Benz is a fan of travel podcasts.  She’s one person who has kept her classic iPod for such contents while the one in her phone remain underutilized.  For my part, I (with my neighbor and scooter buddy, Mark Laccay) conceptualized and hosted Pinoy Scooter Podcast (about scooter riding in the Philippines).  It’s actually thru Mark’s technical assistance that we were finally able to push trough with [email protected]’s very own podcast. about this podcast:  From the get-go, Benz & I wanted the show’s feel to be very casual.  No set questions nor cue cards.  More like the way we’d chat with friends, say, over coffee.  Listening to an episode would feel like eavesdropping to other people’s conversation, only with consent. ;)You may listen to on your computer by clicking ?
