That is a great idea.  You are so creative, no wonder you were
successful at Big blue.  Look forward to hearing the Nutcracker.

That was a great podcast, very enjoyable and thought provoking. I am
sure a lot of people can relate to your wild travel experiences! The
chimes used for separating topics are so lovely, and I love the music
you added. Did you do that with sound layering or multi-tracking? I
would guess Sound Forge lets you add a recording to another recording,
or put music in the background while you're recording your discussion. I
am looking at wave pad; I think that's the name of the program I
downloaded. Is anyone else using that? I've got a project in mind which
would require sound layering. I thought it would be fun to read the
story of the nutcracker (am waiting for the book from Seedlings braille
books); it's about 78 braille pages, but I thought that in addition to
just reading it, why not put music from the Nutcracker ballet behind the
appropriate parts of the book? It might work out, and it might not, but
it sure looks like it would be fun to do, and I'd need to do sound
layering so things could be properly timed. I could do it with a mixer
but it would be sort of a mess, and sort of hit and miss.
We'll see what happens, but let's hope something does; at least it can
get started. If the book turns out to not be what I think it will be,
then at least it was an idea. But wouldn't it be fun to finally do a
sound seeing tour of what everybody sees performed every year? Why
should all of us blind folks be left out of the fun? 
Any thoughts from any of you are most welcome of course. And thanks a
