-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm doing a SHORT AND SNAPPY 10th anniversary podcast with contributions from as many of you as possible squeezed in.

EVERYONE is welcome - readers, listeners, cover-makers, forum users... everyone - and I'd be particularly pleased to hear from people who have never appeared in a podcast before.

F U N is the watchword, please! There will, of course, be musical interludes :lol:.

Upload your contributions by 31st July to the RuthieG folder and name them podcast10anni_[yourinitials].mp3

Come on - you can spare a minute, can't you? :thumbs:

Ruth

Do you mean that contributions should be no more than 1 minute long?

Don't get me wrong - I should like the 10th anniversary podcast to be a special one, but I didn't get much feedback in the planning thread, and with the best will in the world I don't have time myself to put together anything complex this year. However, if anyone else would like to host a more ambitious podcast, I will step back very, very willingly :). Anyone?

I know LibriVox doesn't solicit contributions as a rule, but I'd like to encourage it in a 10th anniversary podcast. Is that acceptable?

What exactly is the kind of thing you want us to say? Like why we like LibriVox, etc?

Anything you like that's LV-related! Here are just a few ideas:

    How you found LibriVox
    Why you like LibriVox
    Your first recording
    Your latest recording
    Your favourite listen
    How you overcame a problem
    Ideas for the future
    Someone that's helped you
    Things that have amused you
    Things that have surprised you
    Things that you have discovered

Ruth

Will Hugh McGuire be contributing to this podcast? Might be nice. :)

Here's a bit from me, which I'm a bit leery of sending, as it might be just too silly. (But you did say "FUN is the watchword" -- so it's your own doing!)

https://librivox.org/uploads/ruthieg/podcast10anni_mk.mp3

I'm aware that it's too long at 2:10. But my dad insisted that the very bits I wanted to cut out just happened to be the bits he wanted left in. So rather than argue between us, we will leave it up to you, Ruthie. When you make up the podcast, you use whichever bits you want and freely cut out the rest.

Thank you so much, Mary and Maria :). We all need a bit of silliness, Maria, and I look forward to it! :D

Gosh, there aren't a lot of contributions to this podcast yet. Surely there are dozens of us LibriVoxers who have something to say for this important anniversary!!!
