You are correct. I can say with some degree of certainty that this will not be recorded, nor will it be public. The reasoning is the same as it has always been with FtB and the response to Actual Play recordings:
1) We would find it awkward, and this is something we're doing for fun.
2) It wouldn't actually help anyone understand our play styles better, because we wouldn't be ourselves if we knew a thousand people were listening.
2b) This is a specific problem here, as one of the reasons this concept started was for the hosts that don't regularly game with each other to better understand each other's gaming styles. We can't do that realistically if we all have our "game faces" on because the podcast listeners can hear us.
The viewable discussion forum was about as close to AP as we were all willing to get, so it was sort of a "meet you in the middle" (insert Pat and Chris "meat in the middle" remark here) for the listeners that want us to do AP recordings.
