Love the Podcast, Sound is Inconsistent

I love this podcast and am so grateful for the show. I listen weekly. I feel like I have a community of readers and writers that I can plug into from wherever. But the sound quality of the recording is inconsistent at best, and inaudible at worst. Sometimes it’s so, so quiet- in the case of Nefertiti Austin’s talk, for example. Even with headphones and in my car it’s hard to hear what she’s saying. And you can never hear the questions the audience asks of the speakers, so you have to intuit what they’re asking from the answers given. Sometimes the show is great. But most of the time I strain to listen. Do right by your speakers and audience-from-afar and check the levels (or something)! Thanks from Florida. :)

Book readings for the rest of us

Living in Phoenix, AZ afforded me the opportunity to meet authors, see bands, and watch movies that weren't availabke in Oklahoma. Now, being back in OK, there are not very many authors coming down to read. It's great to have access to those authors through Skylight's recordings of their book readings. Sometimes the sound has been iffy, but the overall sound quality is good. A very relaxed atmosphere that always features a great writer small (Tao Lin) or big (Joshua Ferris). Crowd usually seems to be intelligent and I've heard very few groan worthy questions to the authors. Podcasts are typically 30-50 minutes featuring a reading followed by a question and answer with one or two authors per reading. Great podcast!
