A few people have suggested I ought to try doing a podcast, and everyone seems to be doing one these days, so I thought I’d give it a go. I’m not sure if I’ll have the time to make a weekly podcast while also writing the blog; right now I have no idea how much effort is involved in this. I’ve bought a good microphone and downloaded some decent editing software so it’s not like I’m just talking into my iPhone, but I’ve got a computer whirring beside me and the room’s a bit echoey, so it might take a few goes to get the sound right. And yeah, the intro music is staying, so don’t bother complaining about that.
So I don’t know what format this podcast will take, in terms of length, content, or regularity. This first one is an experiment, to gauge how my voice sounds and whether anyone would be interested in me talking about other topics. I’ve chosen for my subject a talk I was supposed to give in Washington, DC last year called The Politics of Oil Production: an Engineer’s Perspective.
You can listen and download it below: my intention is to get it into Apple and all the other podcast services in due course. Do have a listen, and let me know what you think.
