Ericast 216 - Chad Discusses iMovie

Click here to listen to this week's episode!

It's Listener Feedback Week! Again! And this time we actually catch up to the last listener feedback we had... from Chad, who explains to me that doing cutaways in iMovie 11 is actually possible.  That sends us off on tangents about the "first follower" and "leadership lessons from the dancing guy" that we discussed last fall, and then we border on a dive into the philosophy of education before I decided to stop.

How's that for an outline?

By the way, on the audio topic, I'm still using Audacity and didn't touch the levels of any of my audio at all.  No compression, no normalization, nothing.  That means, among other things, that Chad's call has audio levels that are a smidge low... but that's part of the "what does an episode sound when we do absolutely no processing" experiment.

We also mention the Podcast Answer Man (Cliff Ravenscraft) and his course which, now that I think about it, I ought to go through to see if I can pick up any tips.

And we work in the somewhat-apocryphal tale of Nina Archabal (or was it Sharon Sayles Belton?) preserving the ruins of the Washburn Mill in Minneapolis (which became the Mill City Museum).

What a ride. But would you expect anything less from the Ericast?
