Audible Althouse, #10.

We're up to the double digits in podcasts, with episode #10. I forgot to reset the tempo, so I had to fit it into 30 minutes or so. Here it is.

And you make it fun to read and leave comments on your blog, Ann. Very sweet.

Mark Daniels said...

What's with these third person references to yourself at the beginning of the podcast? It's funny. It sounds like the famous Jimmy episode of the 'Seinfeld' show, about which I've heard but never actually seen. The difference is that you use your last name.

Douglas MacArthur also referred to himself in the third person inveterately. Eisenhower writes about this hilariously in his book, 'At Ease.'

Daniels is going to close this comment now. Daniels needs to get ready for bed. Daniels is tired and must not be deterred from getting a good night's sleep.

Fun 'cast, by the way.

That was, by far, your most dramatic ending! Maybe some technological contraint is needed to avoid Facultyesque Rambling!

Your 'Harriet Meirs fakey blog voice' would be a good startup sound!

Guy Murray said...

Ann, I love that you and Gordon Smith Blog in Faculty meetings! First things first I say! Likely the best use of time as well! You sound like a great law professor (yeah I listened to the pod cast too) I just fininshed up a revocable trust and needed to unwind. I wish I had you for Constitutional Law way back when!

Thanks for a great blog!

You sound like a cook. I keep thinking of recipes as you speak.

Ann Althouse said...

Mark: The third person references are the voice of my imaginary critic.

Goesh: What?

Goesh said...

I should have elaborated - sorry - your voice reminded me of a cook show hostess I heard some time back. It made me think of black beans, cabbage, rice when brought to boil, lots of curry is thrown in and a strong dash of hot sauce.

I listened to your podcast for the first time and think I prefer the Ann Althouse voice that I "hear" when I read your writings. It's not BAD like, say, listening to Burt Bacharach sing his own songs, but I for one will be sticking to the written voice I've come to enjoy every day.

Podcast #9 reviewed at woai.com. I'll be back for more!

Ann Althouse said...

Thanks, Cyber Bob. That was funny. I didn't know where you were going with that, but I read it to the end, which is worth at least a C in my book. "She sounds like she been through some very hard times, and this hidden emotion in her voice keeps me listening." Hmmm.... Will Althouse ever tell us about the hard times? Anyway, that was a dog, not a duck, in the street.

Finally got around to listening to podcast #10. A bright moment for me was when you took a sip of wine. It came to me that you should have an emoticon or some icon that you use while writing the blog to denote "sip time" that way we could all enjoy a sip with you.! Something like Little Green Footballs' Friday Night Drinking Thread. If we read the blog in the morning, we could always substitute orange juice for the wine. At least most of us.

Enjoyed the rest of the podcast as well! Have you thought about occasionally interviewing friends, faculty, or other parties? You have such a wide range of interests, it would be fun to hear you as interviewer.

I much prefer the 30 minute podcast formats. I can multi-task 30 minutes so much better than an hour. Using a 30 minute chunk, even if it meant [dare I say it?] a *third* podcast for the week would actually increase the podcast time to 1.5 hours/week. Given your high volume blogging, I almost think it merits high volume podcasting.

Thanks Ann - another entertaining podcast with the unique Althousian touches - in this case the scampering squirrels.

I have been listening from #1 and you certainly sound more comfortable and relaxed. I think the wine helps too. I personally prefer a cabernet when listening to the podcast and catching up on the blogs.
