    Great to see, that there are more VC related podcasts to come – thanks! But…

    The quality of the recording is bad, sounds a bit like as it was recorded in a bathroom.

    But the good news is – there are professional podcasters who might help you improve that. A famous one, if not the most famous in Germany is Tim Pritlove. Please see http://der-lautsprecher.de/ , http://metaebene.me or consult him directly. His podcasts not only cover real interesting topics, they also sound like good music with only little expenditure or invest on production. He also made podcasts “how to podcast”.

    So, LDV – please LDP now as well


  2. Thanks for the tips Chris. I think my mic choice was the main issue, and I have a few others I can try out. I will also check out your links and do some additional research on audio quality. I expect it will slowly improve over the next few podcasts as I try different things.

    I agree with the earlier comment…very bad audio. As McLuhan once noted, the medium is the message. Bad audio undermines credibility of presentation, not matter how enlightened the content.

    Looking at the recording in an editor I see that it’s narrowband. Stop that! In the VidConf realm HDVoice rules.

    Your office sounds like a drywall box. Most rooms are a drywall box of some kind. The only thing that sounds worse than a drywall box is a drywall box with a bunch of windows to make it ever more lively.

    A speakerphone in a drywall box is a recipe for bad audio.


    Wear a headset, preferably one with a boom microphone. It doesn’t matter if you use a nice desk phone, soft phone or smart phone…wear a headset…with a boom mic. The resulting mic placement will minimise the impact of the room.
