Oh boy. Poetry. This is sightly terrifying, but I guess I'll volunteer for book 4. I know my dad liked Whitman -- he'd be proud of me for attempting this one.

I suggest podcasting the bowdlerized version, since it is likely to end up in a child's ears. I'd rather my son hear the "clean" version for now -- not because the word is a bad influence or something, but because it's startling and uncomfortable for kids to hear what they know as a "bad word" in a ...

I printed out my Psmith chapters from a .txt file, and am reading Road to Oz straight from an actual (gasp) book. I like to be able to mark with pencil or stickynote where I left off at the last recording session. I considered reading off my pda (no page-turn noises) but neither text was formatted w...

I totally sympathise. I read my chapters of Psmith without having listened to the other readers, and I was a bit worried. But I figured a) hey I'm a volunteer -- I'll just do my best and if I really really suck, someone awesome can re-record my chapters and b) I'll bet every single one of us is at l...

I set my iBook on the coffee table and sit on the floor so I can position my mouth as near the built-in pinhole mic as possible. There's some noise and it certainly doesn't sound like a professional recording, but it's tolerable. I just ordered a "MacMice MicFlex USB Microphone" ($30-ish) from power...
