  • Great to have the show back! Made my morning.

  • There’s a podcast!

    I have been keeping up with Global Voices via RSS feeds and had no idea that there were podcasts. Glad to read that there are, and on my way to iTunes to subscribe.

  • Hamid Tehrani

    Thanks. I hope we have next one in a

  • The music was great, and it really takes alot of work to put that together…you must be stretching Audacity to its limits!…nice variety too…

  • Great that the show is back. Looking forward to be part of it soon.

  • Great content and style!
    I think 30 min. would be a better size, with more room to extend the issues and more time for the music.

  • Many thanks for the generous comments!

    Hamid – one a month is the current plan.

    Ndesanjo and José – how about sending me some Swahili and Brazilian podcasts for the next show?

    And José – I’d do a longer show but it would mean a bigger audio file, and I know people with dial-up already struggle to access the 7-10 MB. On the last couple of shows I did play a full-length song at the end of the show, one of which was by your boss at the Ministry of Culture, but it depends on what I find, and of course I’m also going for regional diversity.

    The solution is probably just to do them more frequently. :)

  • So pleased to see the podcast back! The length doesn’t need extending, it’s a great manageable thing to listen to. thanks!
