    #31 - Beyond the Scene: Fanedits with Bobson Dugnutt

    Everyone loves themselves a good movie, just like a good realtime-rendered scene - and as we do with the latter, some people take their passion obscenely far in making their favourite movies the best they can be. We talk with Bobson Dugnutt about fanedits, a small scene that might seem familiar in all but its final products.

    #29 - Gimmicks and Satire in Demos with jco

    #29 - Gimmicks and Satire in Demos with jco

    Whether it is to divert expectations, provoke, bend the rules or simply have a good time and be creative: humour, satire and gimmicks are a long-standing tradition in the demoscene.

    But is there more to it than just blatant knee-slappers and cheap audience-pleasing? Does humour free oneself from too many expectations and limitations? Or is it limiting in its own ways?
    With the topic so close to his own heart, okkie chats with jco, who has been leaving audiences somewhere between laughing and confused about story-driven productions with characters such as Kevin and Evilbot, all while also developing impressive tool chains and technologically apt productions that don't have to hide behind the absurdity... or do they?

    #28 - An hour-long string of Outtakes and a Year-Wrap - with Shana and lug00ber

    #28 - An hour-long string of Outtakes and a Year-Wrap - with Shana and lug00ber

    It was the end of the year, so our producers joined the hosts to wind down, have some fun and reminisce about their first year as part of the team.

    We give some insights and thoughts from behind the scenes, talk about our favourite episodes, parties and anything that happened in 2022 - and give some first hints what's to come for 2023.

    #27 - Bonfire Special: Competitions with Kiero and Hoffman

    #27 - Bonfire Special: Competitions with Kiero and Hoffman

    After long summer nights, it's getting cold outside again and the demoparty calendar gets sparser. In this special, we invite two guests to discuss a topic intimately, as you might catch the conversation close to a bonfire after a good compo night:

    Our two guests hardly need an introduction - Kiero (MadWizards, Elude) and H0ffman (Logicoma, Unstable Label) share their experiences, feelings and anecdotes about competitions.

    Do they release for the fun of it, or to win? Do they still get compo jitters? Do they ever feel dissatisfied with a production? Is our voting system fair? Do they namevote? And how do they work towards that moment, when their prod is finally shown at the bigscreen?

    #26 - A Dive Into the Scene’s Psychology with Tom

    #26 - A Dive Into the Scene’s Psychology with Tom

    Welcome to our biggest episode yet!

    We can all agree sceners are a peculiar bunch, and our scene is a community like no other, juggling creativity and technical prowess, often even within the same individuals.

    What does it do with us to create, compete and socialise in this environment, and how can we take care of our own and others’ wellbeing?

    We explore the psychology behind the demoscene, demoparties and demomaking with Tom, who does not just create amazing Atari-demos with Genesis Project, Effect and SMFX, but also lectures on Community Psychology at the University of Leeds.

    We appreciate that even two hours can’t do justice to all angles of this complex topic. If you would like to share your thoughts, stories and questions, send them to zineradioshow@scene.org or to our social media accounts. If you are interested and we receive enough feedback, we might produce a follow-up in the future.
