Yes, this is the one episode name that I completely and utterly hijacked simply because JEANNE IS BACK. Yes, the muppet sounding woman from episode one except…she’s intelligible now! It’s my win. MY. WIN.
No, I’m not competitive. Particularly not with something that I can’t possibly lose because it’s obviously not a competition. Why do you ask?
For those starting out on audacity and wanting to make something sound like a radio, do not, I repeat, do not, use the walkie-talkie filter. Make your own. Youtube is the devil and it will tell you how to do it. Actually, just, here:
Like really. Now I have the effect and you can understand me. Win-win.
I abuse the shit out of this technique.
Anyway, the struggle this week was finding episode appropriate music…my response to that was “ehhh…fuck it”. Real life rarely has appropriate background music and I love Otis McDonald’s royalty free swag…sue me.
Listening rates have been doubling recently…and I have no idea why…like…who’s talking about this? I know I was on a reddit chain a while ago but this is…different.
Anyway, I also realized that download numbers =/= the number of listeners. I have no fucking clue how many people are listening to my stuff. Just…nada…do the 85 subscribers on one station actually listen, are even half of them just streaming so I can’t get the numbers?? Do 75% of them just collect podcasts like candies and let them fill up the little homescreen?
The world may never know.
Anyway, my goal is to pick up the mini episodes again this week. I want to do two, but we’ll see. I’m excited to be getting back to them now that my schedule has stabilized.
