Advancing up the curve

Follow-up to The Podcast learning curve from Contemplating the Frame

Latest podcast – link

I hope that the sound level is a bit better on the latest release – I played with the file in Audacity before encoding and this should have bumped up the volume. There may be additional distortion on the file, but hopefully this is minimal.

In other news, this was the first interview I have done for this rather than Richard Fern, the voice on the other two. Wow – was this an eye opener. I could not beileve the number of times I said:

  • "Ummm"
  • "Sort of"
  • "Kind of"
  • "I mean"

and the reappearance of a slight Bristol accent at points.

Most of the editing was removing my stumbling questioning – Daničle Joly was great!

Also, we are now listed in iTunes – search on Warwick and you will find us!

As this is the first non-science based release, I hope that people find it interesting.

I cannot confirm rumours that there will be a blooper reel for christmas…

    The sound level is much better. The difference in sound quality between your voice and Daničle's is quite large. Is that a microphone issue or a genuine voice issue:-) Do you have the two voices on separate tracks or as just one track? If they are separate, it might be worth playing with the EQ on Daničle's track – back off the high frequencies just a little, and boost the mid a bit, maybe?

    You need to be careful with those edits – there's an obvious glitch at about 7:25.

  3. Interestingly the studio is not setup to record an interview in this way – so we are having to play with EQ as we go along to get something usable.

    As to the glitch – oops

  4. Sorry, when I say oops I mean – I hoped no-one would pick that up!

    I have relatives in France, living in Paris, so the issues discussed in the podcast are of some interest.

    BTW, I thought you did very well. If you listen to the usual "major" interviewers on the BBC (John Humphries, Paxo, etc.) they perhaps don't punctuate their questions with quite so many occurances or "sort of", "errr", etc. but it does still happen. Listen carefully to Today or Newsnight. For a first time, it is pretty impressive. I wouldn't do anywhere near so well! And next time, you'll do it better still…
