      Librivox Community Podcast Show #57
— Ductapeguy’s Podversary

This episode of the Librivox Community Podcast marks my (ductapeguy’s) one year anniversary of podcasting. To celebrate, Jim Mowatt and I had a wide ranging skype conversation. I really consider being a Librivox volunteer and helping to produce the community podcast was my University of Podcasting. During the conversation we talk about current news around the Librivox community, as well as my other podcasts, For the Sake of the Song, and White Trash Land.

Sean’s Really Bad Review

Sean and Jim discuss a terrible user review Sean received on and the librivoxian response to it. The discussion continued into the time honored, “What if I suck?” into styles of reading and the privilege and responsibility it is to be a reader of another person’s words.

My buddy Russ Clayton was in Midland a few weeks ago playing at the Books for Brunch Festival. While we were in beautiful Little Lake Park, we recorded a new episode of Russ’ Children’s program for Youtube, RussTV. Russ also has a youtube channel, russy67, for his singer-songwriter material for grown-ups.
