  1. I’ve heard it three times now (the first listen through and then checking the MP3 and Ogg Vorbis encodings – not nearly as many times as Tony, who did another great job on the editing) and I’m very pleased with this podcast. Perhaps our best yet. Even on the third listen I was picking up on a few bits I hadn’t really taken in the first two times!! Overall, certainly a lot better than Podcast 3! One for us to be proud of! Thanks to both Andy and Tony, it was great fun to do and listen to!

  2. Heh, the Nightmare is over!! I’m gonna do a musing about the past two podcasts as I feel they deserve one all to themselves..I swear somebody, somewhere, decided to make things as tricky as possible for me – let’s put it this way, Adam didn’t get the final, 32bit mixed wav file till yesterday mid-morning. Atrocious!

    I have to admit though, pod 1-4 is certainly a lot better then pod 1-3 and yeah, possibly is the best of the bunch so far. I’m starting to think we’ve caught Trek movie syndrome as our even numbered pods are far better then our odd numbered ones….at least last time we discovered that one person doing most of the talking was a Bad Thing – it needs to be all three of us with maybe one of us leading it. How people managed to listen to me going on about conventions all that time is beyond me….
