Audible Althouse #28.

The Blue Christmas Podcast. 36 minutes. (You can stream it right through your computer here.)

UPDATE: If you tried before and found the file way too large, try it now. I needed to change a setting in the software on my new computer.

ANOTHER UPDATE: I notice I said 1418 instead of 418 -- twice! -- referring to St. Augustine. Sorry!

Ann, could you save your podcasts in a more compact form? I still have a wee dialup, and 34 meg is a bit much for 36 minutes of audio...

Russell said...

But it sounds good. Audible Althouse in Stereo Hi-Fi!

Ann Althouse said...

Ron: I have no idea how to do that. I need to be compatible with iTunes and everything. Was this bigger than the others? If so, it's because I'm using the new computer... Hmmm.... I need to figure something out!

Ann Althouse said...

Oh, I just figured it out. Sorry for the format! I needed to change something about iTunes. I'll do a new copy!

It was, to me, your clearest, most natural sounding broadcast yet, requiring turning the volumes all the way up again but this was on my laptop not the thundering beast which lives upstairs.
My, the range of subjects you cover is immense! Thank you very much for doing this.

I'm still working on the sound. I had the new microphone and a more padded space.

My biggest problem was the fan coming on periodically, which required me to stop. I need to find a way to get the thing to go for an hour without that. Any advice?

Pete said...

Yeah, shorter podcasts.

Ann Althouse said...

Pete: Just listen to half, why don't you?

Pete said...

Okay, but which half?

Seriously, I hope my comment came across as tongue-in-cheek. I've been pretty one-note in my criticism but clearly I'm in the minority here. I promise to carve out a block of time in my busy, busy schedule to both download - I have DSL and the download time is still rather lengthy for a 45 minute 'cast - and listen. I don't want to miss any part of the Althouse Experience, if I can help it.

Ann Althouse said...

Pete: only I can have the full Althouse Experience. Sorry, you'll have to miss some of that.

Forget Pete! Longer podcasts!

This one sounds terrific, by he way. The microphone (and your sound-improvement measures) was well worth it.
