The Woman Who Tried To Be Good

by Ferber, Edna

I dreamt last night that I was a reluctant part of some Truman Showy podcasting reality television show, forced to read literature into one of those cellphone hands-free microphones round-the-clock from a text that was projected onto the insides of my eyelids, with the occasional pauses in my reading at chapter breaks to sip coffee or talk to people or, you know, to breathe and stuff. I don’t remember what I was reading, but I’ll bet you appreciated it. At least you better have.

Now, I don’t know from where in the hinterlands of my thick skull one might find the little sliver of grey matter responsible for such subconscious patter, but I’d be tempted to try this someday. Maybe not forever, and not on reality television, no, maybe not. I probably couldn’t even be tempted to go a full day, I don’t think. But maybe for a couple of hours? One day (maybe).

    I listen to your podcast and it was very good. Nice story! I received it from PodcastingNews because I wanted to view some of the more recent podcast and review the style and format of your podcast. Since I am new to podcasting, can you share with me how did you link your podcast directly to your page? Thanks

    Hello Miette!

    I haven’t found your email so I use comments to get in touch with you.

    I’ve just discovered your site today and am very glad about it! I run Incipitblog.com, which is a french site very similar to yours : I’m podcasting free french audio books on it since january, 2006.

    It’s very pleasant to see we share the same idea, I’ve linked to your page!

    Cheers,
    Liseur/Incipitblog
