My First “Podcast”
A while back I purchased a Sony ICD-PX820 voice recorder for a different project I’ve been putting off. (Shame on me.) This morning as I was bicycling in to work I heard the pop-pop-pop of duck hunting. I stopped to take some pictures (photo a day?) and then noticed I had my voice recorder on me.
Listen, if you dare: morning-commute.mp3 (14m13s)
It starts out slow . . . just a test, but as it went along I started pausing recording and stringing together more overt narration. I then managed to trim out a little bit using Audacity. I enjoyed listening, but I am biased. It might be more fun to hear years from now: “Hello, younger Danny!”
- The voice recorder is excellent. One less excuse to start interviewing folks.
- The voice recorder may also be helpful to “jot down ideas” hands-free.
- I thought WordPress had better “podcast” support built in. (Eh?)
- If I want to produce Audio, I should spend a little effort to learn Audacity.
