When I podcasted Grizelda in the fall of 2008, I got some complaints about the book’s sound quality. This isn’t too surprising, since I was recording it with a $25 USB microphone in my dorm room. I rubber-banded a Kleenex over the mike head to cut down on room noises.
Anyway, determined to make The Confederacy of Heaven into a better, stronger podcast than Grizelda, I’ve been looking into better sound recording options. Turns out that Carleton’s Cinema and Media Studies department has a sound booth that’s open for student use. For free. All you have to do is sign up for an appointment, so I did, for tomorrow afternoon.
I get to talk into a real microphone tomorrow! I’m going to feel like a DJ.
