A couple of months ago, my SciBling David Dobbs and I recorded about an hour of discussion for Bloggingheads.tv. We talked mainly about science journalism, but also about journalism in general, about the future of the book, etc.
Unfortunately, Dave’s half of the file got broken beyond repair, so the show never aired. I kept my half of the file and did not really know what to do with it. So, recently I downloaded Audacity and tried my hand at editing the audio part of the file, trying to cut out the silences (during which Dave was talking) and dialogues that would be intelligible without Dave’s part of the file.
Here is the very first part, just a brief (1 minute and 38 seconds) introduction to myself and my job. Thus, my very first podcast, which (after popular vote on FriendFeed decided) will be called ClockCast. I will try to find some time (as I am learning to tackle Audacity!) to edit and post the rest of the file in the near future (I am not, for now, promising any kind of regularity for posting these, until I feel comfortable with the medium and the technology):
