Thanks for the submissions!

I'm not going to be able to work on this until later next week anyway, so let's push back the deadline to Wednesday, November 28th. :)

Thanks, Tricia, that went very well. It's a big encouragement for potential PLers.

..... but ..... thinking of PLing, you have a repeat of one of AlgiePug's pieces. From "Effective prooflistening ..." to "... and how this should be done." from 10.16-10.52 and from 16.26 to 16.57. It doesn't need correcting, as all the contributions could stand repeating.

She did that on purpose, so we could all practice a spot of PLing. (And also to see if we were actually paying attention!) :lol:

But seriously, I loved this podcast, Tricia! It shines a bit of light into a corner of LV that is often overlooked and taken for granted. Bravo! :clap:

Now I'm imagining a series of podcasts looking at other neglected talents that we all rely on without thinking about them much: the folks who are the go-to people for tech questions, the ones who specialize in finding obscure authors' death dates and researching PD-ness, the folks who design our covers, the ones who fill our Book Suggestions thread with so many enticements -- There are so many ways people contribute to LV other than reading. Recognizing the Proof-Listeners could just a beginning!

GAH! Are you serious? :shock: I listened to that thing through several times, and I even had a fresh set of ears PL it for me (especially for pacing, volume, etc., but I'm very surprised she didn't catch the repeat)!

Yeah, it was intentional.

It was the podcast's Easter egg.

Yeah, that's it. :oops:

Thanks to the contributors! Without them stepping up, this would never have gotten anywhere.

And I was finally able to use a bit of that Alfred Hitchco... errr, Funeral March of a Marionette recording I'd been saving up to use somewhere, when I discovered it was PD! 8-)

It's wonderfully cut together! :clap: That was just the right thing to relax this evening, that podcast gave me a smile, especially the end with the sublime message :thumbs:

Great. :clap:
I enjoyed listening to this podcast and learned a lot from it. I am new in LV and, as any novice, am always asking myself what am I doing right or wrong when reading or PLing. Today I found this wonderful piece of good work to answer some of my doubts :9:
Thank you all :)
Of course I will volunteer for much more PLing. I will volunteer...Iwill volunteer...
