Hardware for creating podcast episodes

In this podcast I list and describe the hardware I use to create digital audio files. I do not have an extensive list of hardware and none of the sound boards or various microphones called for by many pundits...my goal has been to use hardware I have or only purchase equipment that has multiple roles beyond creating podcasts.My next episode will include the software I use to create podcasts....stay tuned.

Sound tour of a car rally in the woods

This audio is my first attempt at a sound tour, sharing the sounds and feelings of being at a car rally. I had my iPod with a mic in my hand as my friend Marilyn, her son's family, and myself enjoyed watching a car rally through the graveled country roads in Dent County Missouri. I captured several bits-and-pieces of the sounds and conversations. Two months later, I selected audio files to share with you the feeling of "being there".
