I just listened to your #5 podcast--great work!
Two things, not criticisms but will hopefully make your show a little better.
1.) The mic is heavily panned to the left side. If you listen with headphones it is super quiet in the right side and much louder in the left.
2.) There is a quiet but pervasive buzzing throughout. It sounds like an old-time computer or dot printer--it is probably from your cable connection. Or sometimes with longer cables noise can be introduced through the resistance in the wiring.
Keep up the excellent work!
Thanks for the feedback! Interesting, I wear headphones when recording and do not notice a pan problem. And the buzz is probably My iMac which sits right behind my Mic. I'll see what I can do to fix this. And thanks!
Excellent pod cast! Thank you for sharing!
Chuck, loved this!! Very informative. Thanks for doing these podcasts.
Hi Chuck! 🙂 About your walmart excursions - have you ever tried their canned greens? They do in a pinch. Especially when traveling, or for hurricane evacuation to the shelter, You know they won't have ANYTHING vegan there, well, they do have an apple or piece of fruit sometimes). The Great Value brand actually have some of their greens with just the greens, water, sea salt. (I know - the salt issue - but in a pinch, it helps, I just don't use salt when I'm adding the greens to the pot of food. And as the doctors say, at least you are eating your greens. 🙂 🙂 Loving your podcasts - I'm binge listening...on to the next one...
Thanks for this - couple of questions: do you make popcorn and if so how do you make it? I’ve been popping it on the stove, using a little coconut oil. And I also have bad tap water so I opted to buy a Pur water system pitcher. The filters are plastic and not recyclable - a friend told me about another brand that you only change the filter once a year which is more appealing, would have to research. I appreciate you!
