I just noticed that the link is to the uploader. You'll want to change that.

Wow!!

Seems to be an amazing show! Must sit down and listen to it this afternoon when I get home from work.
But the length says something about how far LibriVox has really come in just five years. Absolutely fantastic! Congratulations everyone!

Yes, it's very long. Everybody had a lot to say and it was said with such feeling I didn't want to cut a lot out. I've now added a running order, so people can skip to the sections they are most interested in. Cori will fix the uploader link when she next comes online, as she's the one who is putting it on archive.

EDIT: Oh and if I've left your name out/spelt your name wrong/failed to thank you personally for your contribution, I'm terribly sorry, my brain is still mush after staying up to put this together. Point out my mistakes and I will fix them.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING !!!!!! :thumbs: :clap:

I began listening to the 5-year-podcast, and I couldn't take a pause. I had to listen to all of it in one go!
Lucy, you have done a fantastic job with it, and the result is just marvellous !

Listening to so many Librivoxers telling what LibriVox has been, is and hopefully will be, and how much it means to so many, well it is amazing, and I feel it is a real privilege to be a small part of LibriVox, thank you. :9:

Done listening. Well done!

I'm not sure exactly when I started, but I found myself grinning widely during the "happy anniversary, Librivox" section. Woo hoo! (Oh, and as the daughter of a steam engine enthusiast, the train at the end was great, too!) :wink:

I have listened through Andy's story so far and have loved every minute. Can't wait to hear the rest. Lucy, you're an absolute angel to have spent so much time and energy putting together this wonderful, memorable podcast for us!

And now I've finished listening and I've got to say thanks once again to Lucy and everyone who contributed. I loved every minute of it. I loved hearing all the old familiar voices as well as the voices of the friends I haven't met yet :)

I got all choked up at the end. Oh you dear sweet librivoxers.

(How can it be that I've never heard the Boom-de-ya-da song before??? That was AWESOME!)

*hugs* to everyone!

1:47:26.

WOW. That's one HUMONGOUS podcast! But I enjoyed every minute of it!

Lucy, I really, really appreciate the effort and time you've put into this. Congratulations, this is such an AMAZING podcast! :D

The statistics section was much, much more thorough than anyone else could have managed it, Availle! I'm SO glad I talked you into it :D

I particularly enjoyed KathrynD's section (read by Lucy) :)

The Boom-de-yada song is a pleasure whenever I listen to it :9:

Someone said, "For a long time it was hard to remember what the world was like before the internet. And now it is hard to remember what the internet was like before LibriVox." So true!

I'm so touched by how many volunteers love LibriVox and how LibriVox has touched all their lives in some way.

Thanks again, Lucy, for doing this! :)
Oh, and LOVELY poem too!

We listened to both new podcasts on our drive back to Canada from Boston yesterday. It made me all excited about Librivox again. Stay tuned for news from me re: a librivox related project we are working on at the Ottawa Folk Festival this weekend.

I would like to add my "well done" to Lucy and everyone else who contributed to the 5th anniversary podcast - it was really great to listen to. It's simply amazing what LibriVox has achieved in just five years. My only regret is that I didn't discover it sooner.

Best wishes all.
regards
