Today was a challenging day, podcast-wise: Zencastr, the ostensibly "easier way" of conducting high-quality audio interviews over the Internet, failed me for the second time this month (third if you include the week-long breakdown of their support process). What should have been an-hour long interview ended up becoming a day-long process of reconstructing what i asked my interviewee, so I could rerecord questions for post-production insertion. So f#*% Zencastr.

 

Fortunately the day got better once I checked my mail and found two future podcast subjects awaiting me.

 

Coupled with the book on top (the author of which I'm interviewing on Monday), it looks as though I have some quality reading ahead of me -- and hopefully some worthwhile podcasts for people to enjoy soon afterward.
