I mentioned at the end of PDP #13 that I used a new microphone; however, I believe I need to work on my microphone technique to get more out of it (I think I stayed too far away from it). So while I hope you still hear an improvement, I think that me having to use a compression filter on the audio files introduced a few problems of its own. Remember I'm a new podcaster so please bear with me as I tweak each show as I learn more and more about how to create them.
I'm also considering creating MP3s at a slightly higher bit rate, which would make the file size bigger. For instance PDP #13 was only 8.5 Mb in size even though it was one of my longer podcasts at about 35 minutes. If I go with a higher rate the file size could jump up to 16 Mb or even 33 Mb.
Is file size a huge consideration for you?
