Thanks, will keep this in mind.  

Hey! I think it is going to be a while before I feel confident enough to
actually do this.  

Maybe in 2017 after I retire?

Greetings Rose.

You can go to:
www.goldwave.com

Their application is really tiny for what it does, so even dialup users can
download it fairly quickly. It's a trial, but here's how the trial
works:
You can run the program sans limitations under the trial. You are allowed
250 commands before the program stops working. Once you've breached the 250
command limit, simply close the program and open it again. This is
completely legal and endorsed by the author(s) of the program.

There are several areas where you can find tips and information on how to
operate the Goldwave sound editing program. If you need help finding a
source of information or even if you just need an answer to a question
without having to go digging through loads of documentation, feel free to
ask. I'm no expert with the program, but I have used it fairly frequently.

What's nice about Goldwave (and several other audio editing packages as
well) is that you can record your podcast in multiple files, then bring them
all into Goldwave for editing. Doing it this way makes editing a lot easier
(in my opinion), since less time is required to process each portion. You
can edit MP3's with the program, but note that it will first decompress the
file before opening which requires some time.

It's a nice little program, and has been an indispensable part of my audio
editing hobbies (along with the three or four other programs that also fall
into that category).

Kai

He does not have any of those programs on his computer that I know of, and
neither do I.  Thanks, I will get there but it may take a while as we have
busy lives.  

We actually went looking for a recording program the other day at Best Buy
and wee actually sort of surprised at the lack of software titles, seems
they don't have nearly as may options as they once had.

Rose and all,

Another option would be for you to do your career podcast on a tape 
recorder; then, if your husband has a PC and it has something like Recall 
Pro or Sound Forge or Studio Recorder or some other recording software on 
it, he could set his input to line input, and record to a .wav or mp3 file, 
directly from your tape.

I did this with some stuff I did for Main Menu on ACB Radio; true, it didn't

come out too well due to my lack of experience at the time, but it's 
possible. I don't know if your husband even has a computer, so it may not 
even be possible to record directly from a tape, but it's just a thought.

Mary
