    This is the first podcast/’aural log’ (whatever) I’ve ever heard.

    I like it more than the occasional read. As natural as it may seem, it produces (an)a “(a)live” effect, which is good. I actually heard it twice or thrice. Yes, your speech is quite clear.

    Obviously, from your short talk, it appears that you tend to side more towards the ‘liberal’ viewpoint although not totally in agreement with everything they maintain. Given just two choices, it seems reasonable to classify one’s political view as liberal or conservative by flexing the rules (that define the two views) a little. So for the most part, you agree with ‘liberal’.

    Although, at the present stage in my life, I personally do not see any point in marital relationships with people of either same or opposite sex, I second your opinion when it comes to being pro gay. That does probably sound contradictory, but given my rather confused state of mind over the past few weeks, it’s probably ‘ok’ as well.

    I have found it immensely difficult to understand women (I will not get into the details). As much as that may have nothing or very little to do with opinions on arbitrary abortion, for now, it suffices to say that I have no comments in that regard.

    Here is a somewhat related read on political standpoints if you’re interested.

    Just curious, why the musical refrains? Is it to set the mood or something? Also, you could try and condense the initial “geek” talk. Hey, it’s totally upto you!

    It’s strange that you haven’t heard any before. I’ve started linking to a few I find fun and check out regularly, titled “For the illiterate”, in the links on the right-hand side on the main page. You can probably check those and others out.

    The musical refrains existed only because… no reason. Most “podcasts” have a starting tune, transition tunes and an ending tune, so I just followed the herd, albeit simplified. Plus, it gave me a chance to play with audacity.

    I didn’t think the initial section was geeky at all. All I said is I used the X5L to record it, and “podcasts” is a misnomer because the Ipod doesn’t figure in at any step, except probably the last step with people listening. Trust me, it could have been an awful lot worse.
