Listen to Omar Offendum’s New Day (RIP Nina Simone) by going to the Cosherink.com page and scrolling through the player. Heck, while you’re at it listen to all the tracks.
- Discovery 1 – it’s easy-peasy with the tools (labyrinth and gnome sound-recorder) that came bundled in my Ubuntu 8.04 OS :) and an audio plugin that I already had installed on my blog.
- Discovery 2 – planning is a good thing when it comes to podcasting. And, for those who like to see/read. I’ve included the plan in this post.
- Discovery 3 – I’ll do it again. But
- a) I’d like to teach myself how to use audacity so I can integrate more music and other sound-bytes into the audio. Maybe. I did like the simplicity of the gnome sound-recorder :)
- I’d like to use ogg vorbis instead of mp3 so I’ll have to find another way to integrate the audio into each post. Though again, I do like the simplicity of the plugin I use already – only thing is, it only recognizes mp3.
