This week my husband and I recorded our first-ever podcast where I banter a bit with him as he tells the story of his conversion to Mormonism and I read a short essay that I wrote about my favorite cemetery.
The experience of recording my voice for the Internet was discomfiting. I don’t like hearing myself talk, and I was pretty self-conscious in the process. Generally I feel I make a better impression with my writing than with my voice. I am hesitant when I speak, and I have difficulty articulating my thoughts clearly.
However, I am excited about the technology of podcasting. In the future I think it would be wonderful to add some podcasts to the X2 site. For example, I have long thought how lovely it would be to hear Brookewill read her poetry.
So I’m wondering if many of you are avid listeners of podcasts? I’ve just recently, as in the last 2 months, started listening to other ‘casts, and I’ve become quite enamored of this genre. For those of you who are podcast subscribers, perhaps you can share some of your favorites with all of us?
