Uh, a bunch of yellow kittens ate my script. Please feel free to leave comments as well as reviews below.

Just 20 minutes of rambling about stuff that I've lived through. 40 years is a long time, and there's plenty of ums and ahs while I describe my recollections of previous US Presidents.

Had to get the ball rolling somehow, and since my eyes are in bad shape just now, didn't wanna read from a script. Hope this isn't too painful to follow....

Not a bad first podcast at all! This was more of what I was expecting when I listened to the second one, pre-vote-time and all. Good mixture of personal and political, as always you have plenty of tales to tell inbetween the opinions. Can't comment on much of the politics, but it was interesting to hear. Feels like you don't really need any audio editing with this either, the sound quality's not bad, no pops or noticeable static (and decent volume). With the loudness wars people keep turning the gains to high and clipping certain frequencies, but all you need to do is turn up the volume if the sound's too low. Anyway, thanks for making this, and looking forward to more! Scripting might keep the red line better, but I like the pace otherwise, it's comfortable and easy to follow. Stays interesting all the way, and ends well. Also meant to comment on that intro in the second one: pretty neat addition there.

I just went down the Wikipedia list, and went back to some mental notes I made before recording. I'll make a better effort to get the audio levels balanced next time, and yeah, sure didn't want to make the mistake of going gain/volume overboard, I get enough of that kinda sound from online gaming over a headset!

Really appreciate the thorough review, and your time spent in listening to this :3

Just listening now. What does "brushing hair with buttered toast" mean? I've heard you use it twice.

Despite lack of script, this is a pleasant and informative listen. I don't mind the ums and ahs. It gives a more comfortable pace to what feels like story time. Despite pauses, and lack of editing, it's unabashedly honest, calm, and an almost comforting overview of history.

I completely agree re: Clinton, as well as on the 911 conspiracy. Nothing was handled correctly, whatsoever. People are still dying today from that rubble.

People mistake mass media for truth. That's why these corporations and politicians can link up freely like they do and get away with it, and why big brother can do whatever they want. It's being concealed.

Re: editing software, you can import audio as another track in Audacity, EQ out most noise, etc. I use Mixcraft for most of my vocal edits just because it's easier to see what I'm doing, and I use Audacity for post-processing.

Great voice. Very very interesting listen, really liked hearing your accounts of all the presidents you've lived through, your thoughts felt very composed too.

I surfed the non-sequiturs mighty close, wasn't easy to recall the linear settings from past to present, but since it was me saying it, needed some kinda context. Sure got iffy towards the end, so much has happened in the past 8 years. Not happy with all the SJW stuff Obama did, especially in the DOJ (or what's left of it). He barely spoke to anyone in the House or Senate, and in that time, the Congress has passed a staggering amount of secret bills... and https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/despite-a-post-snowden-push-for-openness-report-shows-secret-laws-still-abound

very informational! I don't really have anything useful to add/comment on. just some peanut riff-raff. anyway, what the hell is a teacher doing asking a 6 year old who they are gong to vote for. who the f*ck are rutherford b hayes and woodrow wilson? I must say, U.S. history always bored that hell amount of me lol. hey why isn't lewinsky voting for hilary? well, the last Clinton left a bad taste in her mouth. what were you implying about Obama? Agreed, that's why political correctness is bad (and fascist). lol'd @ the tobacco break. peace out


VicariousE responds:

At the time (1979) it seemed weird, but a lot of recently graduated college kids were teaching us then. It was just to show up another fellow teacher was all that was. The banks used to have a program where your student loan rate would be reduced and paid off sooner, if a recent grad did overseas non-profit work or http://usaid.gov/, or if they became teachers for a set amount of years. Wages would be heavily garnished to pay off the loan, but it had the best interest rate going. Oh, and I found this lol http://election.scholastic.com/vote/

Guess I was implying Obama is nothing more than an establishment repressed communist agitator and SJW. The fact is, whoever runs this country, the people will have to be beholden to whoever funded his/her election campaign.

Thanks for listening, though I think the 5 star rating is a bit much for such a seat-of-the-pants single-take *cough!
