    Dear Miette,

    I love the podcast. But may I make two suggestions?

    (1) Could you encode at less than 128 kbps to reduce the file size of your readings? (Some of us are still on slower connections!)

    (2) Is there a way to turn up the volume on the podcasts?

    Otherwise, please remain exactly as you are. Thank you!

    Hello Steven (and other darling listeners):

    When beneath my feet the bridge over podcasting’s bubbled waters broke, I fell in, head-first. I was dogmatically determined to be a vigilante about it, never to learn sound editing or cleanup techniques, just to read and post. But: there are others who share your sentiment, and as you might be able to tell, I have (and I’m reluctant to admit) been learning these very things. I’ll get it one of these days; until then, I learn a little each time. I’ll take your advice on the next recordings (maybe even post high/low bandwidth versions, now that I’m becoming an audio geek… er, pro.)

    To the adorable Ms L’derh:

    Fantastic idea on the party– though in my case, I’ll bet they’d show up for the chips-and-beer, and forget the books they owe me. In other news, you are very good for my ego.

    I’ve often thought about posting a wish list, but it seems, I don’t know, a little greedy. I should instead post a link to send books to charity or something. Then again, one little link can’t hurt anybody? (You’ve found my weakness.) So, should anyone ever feel so inclined, you can start here (by no means comprehensive or arranged by preference, but…):

    Though something more practical might be Sound Editing For Dummies and Absolute Obdurate Snots Who Until Very Recently Have Refused to Learn Sound Editing Techniques.

    Oh, dear, Miette!

    I accidentally incinerated your last email (and address). Would it be too much to ask for you to send it to me again? I’d like to get started…

Please comment with your real name using good manners.
