I offered a free, 30-minute conference call (with a web component where you could see illustrations of what I described) on four dates in March, 2008.
The subject of this call was "Recording Your Stories: the State of the Art."
Why recordings are more important today than ever.
The latest developments in digital recorders for storytellers
Microphone options for recording your stories
Easy, inexpensive ways to edit your stories - even if you're techno-phobic.
After covering those topics briskly but in helpful, illustrated detail, I then spent a little over 4 minutes describing my upcoming How to Record Your Stories course.
Then I took questions from those attending the call.
The questions were a highlight, as people asked about everything from "do these mics amplify your voice?" to "Will a lavalier mic work with my Olympus recorder?" and "Will my recording represent me well to my customers?"

2) Once the video has loaded fully, you can download the video to your computer and open it. (To download the video, right click in Windows and choose "download" from the pop-up menu—or click the bottom-right triangle in Mac OS X and choose "Save as Source." If those options don't appear in the menu you see, wait a few more minutes while the video loads.)
Once it begins to play, you can resize the screen (depending on the video player on your computer).
