We start the show by saying ta-ra to the wife and daughters and starting on our walk.
Note to self: record an HPR episode about coffee
This episode inspired by jonkulp's emergency HPR episode entitled "biking2work", as mentioned on his GNUsocial post: http://micro.fragdev.com/notice/1425116
I give a brief introduction to who I am, and where I live.
Neewer Lapel Microphones from Amazon UK http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B005DOTSM4/
The lapel mic issue at our church. £1.50 a piece, rather than £25+ for an official replacement.
Background to my 7½ year podcasting history:
Other music podcasts too
Note to self: record an HPR episode on my journey into podcasting
Note to self: record an HPR episode on my journey into Linux
Metric vs Imperial measurements
Note to self: record an HPR episode on variances between different measurement systems
A comparison between my Nexus 7 and my Olympus DM-3 recorder, both with and without the lapel mic. http://media.thelovebug.org/u/thelovebug/m/lapel-microphone-comparisons/
Small glitch in the recording resulted in about 5 seconds being dropped, so it sounds a little disjointed at one point
Opinion around acceptable audio quality.
"If you can hear it, it's good enough."
Note to self: record an HPR episode on Auphonic and how to improve audio quality with very little effort
What would happen if Alex slipped and rolled down the hill.
Alex gives a quick introduction to himself.
He's also the slowest human in history.
I did run this episode through Auphonic, which didn't do a bad job in the slightest.
Settings used: Adaptive Leveler, Filtering, Noise and hum reduction set to Auto.
According to the processing results, hum reduction wasn't needed.
It would appear as though I've promised Ken 5 new shows - no pressure, eh.
