I have a wee problem with my podcasting.
I bought all my equipment from a bloke on eBay. He swore it was all the latest stuff, but I'm not really very up to date on these things. Now I find I can't get spares because the company went out of business twenty years ago. And they don't make tapes for it any more.
So now I've got to get rid of it and start again. It cost me €25,000 but I'm not totally out of pocket – I've managed to sell it to the RTE Broadcasting Museum for €50. I'm having to make do with an old Philips reel to reel that I found in the attic.
Herself has taken the plunge. She has done her first podcast! So nip over and leave her a message. Don't encourage her too much as she'll get big headed. And I'll have to spend all my time editing tapes and cutting and splicing. She is a bit of a perfectionist and that podcast only took 63 takes and 8 hours of editing. I didn't get any sleep last night.
I went for a walk this morning to clear the head.
I thought I'd try my hand at a short bit of Outside Broadcasting [that’s what we broadcasting people call it!]
