New Project: Planning a Podcast

Podcasting has always interested me. Over the last ten years or so I’ve had the thought of starting one cross my mind. But two things have held me back: choosing a topic and the “usual podcast format/formula” has always struck me as a bit boring. While stories told on public radio held my attention, podcasts seem to leave the tedious parts in. That’s one reason for the relative silence on this blog lately (the other being health related).

I converted the 44.1k/16bit .wav file to .mp3 with GarageBand.
