Loved the ambient sounds

Hi Jon,

Very enjoyable. It was fun to be accompanying you on your walk. Thanks for the description of what was going on around you too.

Oh, and some of those headphones sounded interesting, as did the microphone.

Heavy Breathing

Thanks Dave, I enjoyed recording this way but am not a fan of resultant heavy breathing. Planning to record brief outdoor episode today but I think I'll just go sit by the swamp or something.

Not heavy breathing, just breathing.

Didn't bother me. A change in breathing rate is what sometimes happens when humans walk and talk!

I agree with Dave. This was really enjoyable to listen to. The very informal nature of joining you on a walk to work (and hearing commentary about what you saw along the way) was at least as fun as the intended content on headphones, which was also good :). Thanks!
