I've noticed that my podcasts tend to be a much smaller file size than most other people's too. I'm not using Audacity. I use the Sound Recorder
that comes with Windows to do most of my recordings. Any mixing or sound effects I have to do, I'll use a free version of Goldwave. And to convert
WAVs to MP3s I downloaded "Smartwavconverter". It's not the full version so there is a limitation and it only converts 60% of your file, so you
have to add extra silence to the end until it converts all of it, but it's easy enough for me to put up with.
I haven't even bothered changing settings yet. Next podcast I'll try to get it as ridiculously low quality as possible, without it sounding bad.
I'd appreciate it if other people turn their quality down too a bit, because I have this dumb 2 GB limit on my monthly bandwidth or something like
that, so if it goes over I have to pay extra and the smaller the files, the better off I am
I dunno what the Live vs Hold on your podcasts means. Did you start/record the file yesterday and upload it today? Or it might be because you have
under 200 posts so a mod has to approve your uploads, whereas most people doing podcasts have been here a bit longer and get them put up automatically
And that "Yar-coffin"*cough*"Yarc-o-fin" thing happening so many times makes me think you were doing that on purpose.
Excellent myth-dispelling, Akashic
. I feel kind of dumb for starting this when it is already being discussed on the Meditation podcast though
Just one thing, Pt 1 at 3:20 you say "There have been hundreds of people who try astral projection". I'd like to guess that it's more like
hundreds of thousands
Booked time with God... this should be interesting. I look forward to it
