I had a backchannel email about the process used to record this show. I'll paste my response below.

===begin, paste=====
I use the "rec" invocation of sox. From memory, something like:
rec -r 44100 ${show}-raw.flac
ctrl-c to quit recording.

save edited file as ${show}-edited.flac

oggenc, no flags. Just "oggenc ${show}-edited.flac"

final preparation for upload:
ogginfo for comment tagging in the ogg container
rename files and .txt as recommended in the README:
