Technical Notes:

Once you think you have things worked out with microphones, stands, recording interfaces….well, things change. Welcome to podcasting. I’m still working out the set-up with two new microphones and the banging you’ll hear in this podcast was from us tapping the desk when we made a point. Unfortunately, the microphone picked it up and amplified it.  So, the mix is a bit “tinny” but it eliminates the big booms that might come across the podcast.
