LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #22

This week's episode brings another installment of Tech for Techies as well as a commentary and a word from the audio engineer. The episode ran short as we had to handle the loss of a previously planned interview. An administrative trivia note at the end of the episode noted that next week's episode will post at the usual time in the usual way notwithstanding there being a holiday in the United States.

LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #21

This week's episode has a bit of a Rod Serling inspired feel to it. As the podcast is not a video one, we can control neither the horizontal nor the vertical. We can present a different look at things, though. The podcast opens with a zeitgeist check by the podcast audio production engineer. An interview with Blake Carver follows with the fifth installment of Tech for Techies soon thereafter. The podcast audio production engineer wrapped up the episode. As to the nature of any potential Ghoulardi-inspired podcast, the production team has no known plans. To contact Stephen via Skype, the button below may be useful: Skype Me™!

LISTen: The LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #18

This week's episode was an attempt at recording live with a chance for listener participants. Some times it helps, though, to remember to actually hit record on the audio recorder even if the live stream itself is recording. The recording of both takes can be found at: http://lisnews.org/node/29852. This week's episode was a live discussion of bridging the digital divide from the perspective of the United States. The episode served as a test for libraries who wanted to see how such technology could be utilized without investing a ton of money. While not easy, this might provide a practical example for consideration.
