After all the nicecast changing and testing of effects I’ve been doing the audio on this one is pretty rough.
I also got some, quite a few, sections of silence.

Not sure where they came from, I am putting it down to nicecast flakyness, perhaps due to the fact I’ve been hammering it (had a crash just before broadcast).

A second attempt at ds106 radio. 10 minute broadcast. A chance to think about chickens, the madness of ds106 and plans for some more podcasts.

Embarrassing moment here when Martha Burtis’s name left my head and left me mumbling. (note, names on notes).
