Thank you to everyone who gave feedback about possibly starting up a new podcast. I had more feedback than I expected and it was all positive and encouraging. I ordered a mic on Friday, recorded some files on Tuesday, and learned a lot about post-production in the last few days. The first episode could be up as early as tomorrow. I need to give everything a final listen, write show notes, and figure out how to get it to iTunes.
