MessageHello Rose,
My name is Maria Rios, and if you've heard Lynnette's podcasts, I am the M A 
half of Malyn.  I just wanted to say that this afternoon Lynne played your 
podcast over our stereo, and I totally enjoyed it.  I also was a medical 
transcriptionist for a good portion of my working life and like you, had my ups 
and downs with it.  

Well, it's getting kind of late, and I have a PowerPoint class in the morning, 
so I'd better get to bed.  Lynne has asked me on several occasions to do a 
career podcast or a life history one, so perhaps someday soon I will tell all.  

Take care,

  Funny, but I don't think I could ever do anything like that.  I am still 
having problems with digital recording, wished I could have edited my career 
cast but at this point don't have the software and more importantly the know 
how for that.

  Oh no!  *grinning*
  You found me out.  Back about 15 years ago, when I was in highschool, my 
class produced a small newspaper, meant only for the school to read.  One of 
the house parrents wanted a copy of it for herself, so while I was making a 
letter tape to someone back at home, she knocked on my door and asked if she 
could come in.  I completely forgot that I was recording.  She asked me about 
the paper, and said that she wanted one, and that she had found one on a 
teacher's desk, and that was how she found out about it.  I asked if she wanted 
print or braille, and she said it didn't matter.  Then she left the room.
  I remembered that I was recording, and I had a dual cassette, so decided to 
have a bit of fun.

  I started recording, and said, "OK miss Manard, you wanted to talk to me 
about the joints you found in the top of my closet?"  Then I inserted her 
saying, "Yes."  I asked her what she wanted to say about it, and she said, "I 
want one."  I asked her why she didn't smoke one as soon as she found it, and 
she said she didn't have time, but that she had found one on Miss Boars desk.  
I told her that the conversation was being recorded and asked her if she cared, 
and she said, "Oh, it don't matter."  There was a lot more to it than that, but 
those are the hi-lites.  The whole conversation never happened, but I sure had 
an hour of intertainment putting it all together.  Teenagers will do just about

  Hi all,

  It's late and I need to quit to be able to get up reasonably early tomorrow 
since I have a grocery delivery and want to start holiday baking. I need to 
check out copyright and stuff on the various podcast storage sites; am leaning 
more toward libsyn but have also looked at ourmedia. I feel a bit more 
comfortable with libsyn but I suppose there are good and bad aspects to each 
site. I know there's a blind podcaster e-mail list someplace but not sure I 
want to join anything else since BCT and the 4 or 5 other lists keep things 
flowing just about right; not too hectic but plenty to keep things interesting. 
So I will have to do a bit more checking; I'd rather not have somebody run off 
with my stuff and claim it's theirs, but then it makes sense to just podcast 
public domain stuff anyway. I like things to be rated G, so to speak, but still 
get nervous about what people can use and how they can use it. I heard a scary 
news story about how technology is so good now that they can take tiny snippets 
and words from interviews, re-arrange them and make the person say something he 
didn't really say. Somebody was doing that with John Lennon, of all people, 
just taking sounds and phrases and words and combining them into things he 
never really said, but it's in his own voice.

  Ok, I'd better quit thinking about this. Why is it that at night it's so easy 
to come up with this weird stuff! Tomorrow I'll have forgotten all about it or 
think it's silly. But it isn't, really; there's a relevant point to it.
