  1. Bill,

    Good podcast and I have just started reading your book. Great job! Did you change your mic again? Your S's have returned to being annoyingly raspy.

  2. Bill, there's a specific device called a "de-esser" that I first heard about when Frank Zappa talked about his studio techniques. It's not a notch filter that stays in place statically, but is impulse-activated. Your particular way of speaking is coveted among bluegrass musicians. Ralph Stanley, the famous banjo player and singer has a whistling "s" that gives him cred in the bluegrass music community. Unfortunately that cred doesn't transfer into podcasting. No windscreen can solve this issue--it is simply the way you speak and it's fine with us. You do produce a very high SPL at that frequency, however. I advise listeners to listen through WinAmp, using "Soft FM" compression. It's a free plugin that does the trick.
    I'll listen to you on the treadmill this evening and see what happens. Best 73,
    Jonathan KC7FYS
