Podcasting Pull-through

Podcasting, although an enjoyable experience, I must say, has not been as technically pleasing to me as I would have hoped. Six weeks ago, when the first podcast was due, I couldn't get the files to upload from the recorder to my computer. I finally got things sorted out with Dr. Jerz and attempted my feat again. No luck. I still couldn't get the damned thing to upload from my computer. Long story short, because I really don't feel like reminiscing and reliving my frustration, a very kind friend helped me to solve my technical issues and I now have two finished, polished podcasts. (Which are saved in three different places; I'm not taking any chances).

Actually being able to work more with the audacity software was something I enjoyed. I couldn't believe how long it took to edit an 8 minute file; I liked it though. I even got to the point where I began to recognize when my interviewee was saying "um".

Dr. Jerz commented on the sound quality of my podcast and how it was evenly spaced and the other comments included: "very technical, nearly perfect sound quality", "good quality, good interviewee". These comments were on an anonymous basis, but they did come from my peers in my EL200 class.
