Do you listen to the podcasts regularly?
How far have you listened in? The first episodes were very poor audio quality. Seth complained about the encoding rate, and eventually was able to record better audio.

I feel your frustration, but Linux is 1/2 the consumer usage of Mac OS, and it doesn't make sense for Microsoft or Apple to Dev for an open source platform.

I'm right up to date with the podcasts. I usually listen within the week that they were recorded.
I don't wanna sound like I'm complaining - especially being new in the forums. Just high-lighting the big difference in audio quality between the podcasts and audiobook.
With the amount of bandwidth available to most users these days there really isn't any need for blogtalk to use such severe compression in their audio encodes.

Despite all that - the podcasts are completely 'listenable' and I enjoy almost every one of them. :-)

I assume the audio book was recorded in Seth's home studio where he does the podcasts. It would be great if they could up the bitrate on their encodes or if Blogtalk radio had an option to use aac encoding instead of mp3 which would give a better quality at a lower bitrate.
well,i'm glad he doesn't.
I won't strain my heavily used dataplan and download aroind 50 mb just to listen to seth talk for an hour.
Oe if podcastradio will support higher bitrates,as long as seth keeps his show in the lower quality available as well.
Or aac encoding would be an option.

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....

Not like I used too. But I when I do start up again I listen to all of them in a row. I think I might call in one day. Consider

I've not listened in a couple of weeks.

I am listening to science and history podcasts these days. I do enjoy The scathing atheist mostly. I like the attitude.

Seth is very polite to theists. But I don't share the love. I have difficulty respecting theists of any stripe. Deep down I consider them all dumb arses.

I was never a theist. Cannot even imagine it??? Blink

RE: Do you listen to the podcasts regularly?
There are a few callers that call - a lot - and I have gotten bored with the time given them. A couple topics have left me cold, so I just delete them. But I do at least check out all of them.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy
