Considering the hurricane situation in the Gulf of Mexico as well as the normal slow-down to news at this time, this week's episode has no interviews to it. A new installment of Tech for Techies is presented relative to interviewing for podcasts and gives some advice for librarians and teacher-librarians who may be involved in such. The program's engineer presented a brief bit about BlogWorldExpo 2008 (e-mail about that can be sent too). A commentary is also presented.
If you want to learn more about the situation with Hurricane Gustav, you can add this URL to your podcatcher to receive audio reports directly from the National Hurricane Center: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/audio/index_podcast.xml. As of the time of posting, updates were being issued regularly by the National Hurricane Center. An expanded listing of resource links can be found at LISNews here.
As an experiment in light of recent discussion, a transcript of this episode is available for purchase. The options exist to secure copies in either print form or electronic form. Pricing was intentionally kept on par, to the extent possible, with that asked by programs hosted by Oprah and Dr. Phil. This is a test to see if there is sufficient interest to back future transcript efforts as such involves diverting time and resources from other efforts.
