    Some comradely advice: up your production values!

    At least for the one talk I tried to listen to (The Howard Moss one) the sound quality sounded like it was recorded at the bottom of a swimming pool! If you want some up-to-date advice on cheap but high-quality recorders and lapel mics, I can be of service. Badly done stuff is not a good look.

    Howard’s talk was recorded at Summer School through the venue’s microphones, so in a different way to the other talks which are much clearer.

    “Howard’s talk was recorded at Summer School through the venue’s microphones, so in a different way to the other talks which are much clearer.”

    Sadly, Howard’s talk is a bit echoey but it is still listenable.

    I guess it’s a variation on the old joke directed at the SPGB :

    ‘We knew they held their party conferences in telephone boxes but now it appears they hold their public meetings in echo chambers . . .’

    It’s the way I tell them.
