John Hodgman at Cody’s Books

Posted in audio recording, johnhodgman, jonathancoulton at 8:56 pm by pronoiac

On the 12th of October, John Hodgman visited Cody’s Books in San Francisco, for the tour of the paperback Areas of my Expertise. He’s also the PC in the Mac ads, & he’s a correspondent on the Daily Show, & he has a blog.

There is some good video of this event, from kwc.org (the first 40 minutes!) & from Violet Blue (some short segments).

Here are the mp3 & AAC/M4B versions; they’re both 22meg, 32kbps, recorded at 22khz. I was close to the back of the crowd.

I tried out an audio compressor, instead of tweaking audio volume envelopes throughout.

Update, 2007-02-07: Gee, I should’ve mentioned Jonathan Coulton before. I put in chapters:

  • 0:00 – setting up
  • 2:40 – intro
  • 17:40 – Mall of America
  • 28:05 – Hobo Matters
  • 41:53 – John & Jonathan rest
  • 48:19 – Q & A
