I really enjoyed that episode!

- I agree with priscille, we need more Alera in the podcasts! 
- Sounds quality was really great.  It sounds like you are getting more comfortable with each podcast!
- I appreciate the news items at the beginning.
- I'd like to put in a vote for Mickey Finn to be the next guest from the forum on the show.  He has done a great job on the forum, and has introduced me to a couple of new series.

(make sure that you listen to the last 30 seconds of the podcast for some blooper goodness)

So do I.  I think once the TV show's first season is done, there'll be enough of a reduction in New Dresden Stuff, so I'm betting we'll start getting some Alera-ness by episode 9 or 10 of the podcast at the latest.

Two things played into this. 

One, I got a new microphone that does noise cancellation in the hardware, so I didn't have to process out the background white noise this time around.

Two, this was a direct skype-to-skype conversation instead of skype-to-phone, which always seems to be a little lower quality. 

It also helped that Priscellie's got a good voice for podcasting. :)

Good, I'm trying to make sure that the podcast has a "loose" structure of news-then-opinions.

Yep, Mickey's very high on the list.  Priscellie was at the top because she's the one who keeps feeding me the audio captures from the TV show.

I don't put in a blooper reel very often (this is the second one ever), but the ones this time I thought had some genuine comedic value. :)

Got it downloaded but I only got to listen to the first few minutes before I had to leave for work (knew I should have dl'd onto the ipod for work listening...hindsight, oh well).  I have to agree with the sound quality being improved, good hardware is always a worthy investment.  I will look forward to finally putting a voice with a name for Priscellie later today.

I probably worded that strangely.  I meant to say that I enjoyed the news items themselves. 

Whether they were at the beginning or at the end does not matter to me, as long as I get my fix.  :-)

Got it.  Well, you've got my thoughts on format anyway! ;)

Hmmm... I think I'll start listening to these then.  Starting at the first and so on.

Another great episode! It's good to see that we have some Alera love coming soon. I just got my gf to finally read the codex after re-reading it to be able to discuss. While I am thrilled to have White Knight and the show to talk about I want more Alera! December seems like way too far away...

It was great to have a voice to associate with Pricellie, and I am green with nerd-envy!
On thing about her audio: I was picking up a weird pre-echo on her words, like she was speaking from the other side in Poltergeist. I don't know if it was just a bad phone connection or if it was the software. It's the first time I noticed this in an interview and wanted to let you know.

All in all, another great episode, I just hope the next episode isn't in another 4 weeks!  :P

It may be three; we've got three episodes left in the TV series, and I think I want to have the first season sewn up in BB008.

Crap, you figured it out!  All this time, I've been posting from beyond the grave.  I would have gotten away with it too, if not for you meddling kids!

Just listened to it late last nite.  Good Episode.  Way to go Priscellie!

You're an internet star now!! I also love the soundclips Fred.  They're one of my fave parts at the beginning each show.

Listened toi it, but for some reason, some of the conversation with Priscellie wasn't so loud -- I had to turn the speakers and sound card all the way up to hear it. Did anyone have the same problem?

Cool as usual. Nice to hear you, Priscellie!

Some of the conversation sounded quiet, around the 33, 34 minute area? I can't find it now.

I'll try to keep an eye/ear on that in the future.  The volume levels fluctuated a bit over the course of conversation, and I tried to adjust where I could.
