Production thoughts

So tried something new with this week’s Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap – a little post-production tool recommended by the first lady of podcasting Mur Lafferty.[1] The tool is Levelator and it “fixed” our voices quite well. People complaining that we’re too quiet should be pleasantly surprised this week.

It does make my pauses when speaking a little jarring. Something I need to work on, I suppose, is my speaking style so I’m not quite so Shatner-esque when I’m thinking. Or I need to edit the HELL out of the podcast and remove every quarter-to-half second pause I take when finding the right words.

But other than that, I think we’re getting the hang of things. We’ve got some ideas for upcoming shows, and the response, so far, has been fantastic. Thanks for listening, and feel free to send in suggestions, disagreements, and comments!

[1] Go read her new story Marco and the Red Granny – I’m eagerly awaiting the text of part three.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
