Audioblog for Sept 28, 2004

Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the audioblog for September 28, 2004. I talk about the schedule change and how I’m not doing 7 shows a week anymore; I discuss WebTalkRadio, Mitch Ratcliffe and BoardGameGeek; I play some listener feedback and we talk about how one can follow conversations that span across multiple podcast fies; I talk a little about Hugo Schottman’s setup; I discuss Doc Searls and use of the term “podcasting”; and finally I betray my heritage as a country boy by playing a pure C&W song.

There are crackly things in this episode, and I’m almost certain that it is because of Garage Band hogging so much CPU that Audacity couldn’t keep up with the recording. I need to fix that and get it out of the loop.

  1. I’m all for your new schedule. As it was, I was starting to look very hard at my playlist and figure out what had to go, since my drivetime is about the only time I have during the week in which to listen, and more and more podcasts are starting up. I need time to check the new ones out, but I do enjoy your show, so I’ll be looking forward to the “Evil Genius Chronicles Weekend Edition”.

  2. You mention in this edition that you’re interested in ways to search audio programs. Of course, the long term solution is to incorporate speech recognition. The medium-term solution is to modify the audio editing application so that it also generates the comments in the XML wrapper, and includes in that wrapper notes which are added during the editing process. I suppose the short-term solution is to actually work from a script when you record your program, and then to post the script (and include time indexes).

    I predict that if PODcasts are actually going to become a widespread medium, professional-quality writing for the ear is going to be a part of the better productions. Except for live breaking news, all professional broadcast journalists and comentators work from scripts. They normally hand their scripts off to producers to edit the final story or newscast. If, no when, PODcasting makes it to MP3-playing cell phones and other non-geek appliances, there will be major players who work this way.
