Hi Marsha and welcome to BCT. I think I remember seeing your name on some other lists. You're not alone on not knowing how to do a podcast so don't worry. I myself am very interested in this kind of thing and really enjoy listening to the podcasts up on the BCT website.

I am a medical transcriptionist who also likes to listen to podcasts. My husband, James, who is also subscribed to this list is also a great fan of yours. I know that Larry has told us he has wanted to give us step-by-steps on submitting a podcast. However, I do not even know how to go about recording one, let alone submitting a podcast. I know that Adam Curie has some stuff on that but I need this thing even more simple than that as I am what is called technically challenged when it comes to that. I have heard all about the digital recorders out there but don't know which to pick as being the most accessible and also able to do what you want it to do. Again, thank you for answering my questions. By the way, I also liked your career podcast you made back in September or October, Lisa. That was a good one.

I'm 28 years old and live in Florida. I'm originally from Louisiana but moved to Florida when I was a small child. I've been blind since birth. I still live with my parents but am very independent and can take care of myself. The only problem I have is transportation. My parents both work and we have no public transportation where I live. There's a place called ride solutions but they pick favorites to pick up and see me as a bother. I don't have a social life and there is no organization where I live. I'm in the house most of the time and I know that's not real healthy but I don't have a choice unless I move out but I'm not financially or mentally ready for that. No job opportunities here either. I'd sure love to work so I can move out and live in my own apartment and get myself a kitty cat since my folks won't let me keep one here. I suffer from severe depression but am working on getting off this medication cause I'm tired of taking them and my stupid shrink is being a total pain in the neck. I'm single and would love to meet some singles in my area which is Palatka which is an hour from St. Augustine. I also love listening to podcasts. I hope to start my own someday. Well I think that's all for now but I'm glad to be here.
