"And here you thought I sounded like Gomer Pyle".

So welcome to a new direction for the website. For your listening enjoyment I present:

The first podcast from The Special Project

This is mostly a chance to get my feet wet and to try to make sure I'm using all of the tools properly. Download it, give it a listen and marvel at details of Robert Louis Stevenson's life you never imagined. Music and other elements that will make things a bit warmer will be in the next one.

If you're interested in the technical details I recorded it at my desk using the Snowball microphone and Audacity software. The only background noise I spotted was the slight whir of the computer fans but hopefully it won't detract too much.

After you've had a chance to give it a listen let me know what you think. After I get the next one finished I'll have the RSS 2.0 feed up and submitted to iTunes.



A problem in uploading caused the file to go wonky towards the end. I am uploading a corrected version so if you were lucky enough to get the wonky version just try it again.
