Hi Bob

Live from my bathroom:

Duration 01:11

The best parts are the ums and ers, which lend a charming verisimilitude.

All the best
Martin

Martin!

It's wonderful. So articulate, erudite and very natural-sounding. The ums and ers (barely noticeable) do indeed make it sound like you are speaking spontaneously.

Thanks very much for sending this. It'll give added flavor and meaning to the podcast and it's practice for your making an audio contribution to the future poetry and drama podcasts. More on that later.

Cheers,
Bob

Very interesting! Made an hour of cleaning the bathroom much more enjoyable.
So little space, so much to say.

I was job hunting online while listen. It made the chore less depressing. Thanks for a great podcast! :clap:

:clap: Fantastic podcast Bob and everybody. It was great to reminisce about the early podcasts, but also to reflect upon what Librivox has become. :9:

Thanks, Sean and Ruth. And thanks for contributing and helping to make it a good podcast. It's a privilege to share the podcast with all of you, whom I know and have listened to on the podcasts continuously for months now. Sean, I know everyone looks forward to part two of your colloquy with Jim. And Ruth, yes, that piece on the origin of the podcast is a really absurdist gem.

Thanks again so much for supporting and helping me with this podcast and the whole LV experience!
