Now, with audio clarity


The Ministry of Geek received an unexpected email from the iTunes store (no, it wasn’t a “Cease and Desist” order) asking to feature our podcast on iTunes! We’re definitely thrilled (and baffled) so keep an eye out for us in the next week or so…though we’re not entirely sure what it means to be ‘featured’. Even more remarkable was that we managed to rank #1 in the Technology Tech News section for a brief time!

Our latest episode was recorded with the newly acquired Snowball microphone and it’s made a big improvement to the audio quality. In this episode we ponder just how evil Google has become, discuss the acquisition of our own budget spy-plane, try desperately hard not to talk about Apple products, and lament some questionable tech purchases. Check it out.

  1. Yes – the new microphone makes all the difference. There's a lot less echo now. Entertaining stuff guys.Just a small tip – try not to talk over one another though, it can be difficult at times to understand the dialogue with both of you clucking away at the same time.

  2. Thanks Mr Brillo. Glad you are enjoying it, and thanks for the tip. We will work on a turn-taking protocol to avoid noisy crosstalk and podcast attenuation! Cheers.

  3. Better audio by far. And for the Martin fans – http://www.ipenz.co.nz/pickering/

  4. Cheers Tricky 'o) We've still got a bit of volume tweaking to do which we'll have sorted next episode. Thanks for the Martin reference — was planning on attending the Wellington talk next week.

  5. How awesome is the Blue Snowball!??Prob one of the best purchases i ever made.

    • Hi Noodlez,

      Yes, the Snowball is really awesome! That coupled with some tweaks in Episode 5 to Garageband means that we’re clear and louder so we’re finally getting things sorted. We’re certainly happy with the upgrade!

      We really hope you’re enjoying the show and keep listening! ‘o)

    Microphone makes a great difference – good call. Instead of a touchpad you guys should trial the swiftpoint mouse -http://www.asiapacific.futuremouse.com.

    • Hi Elcaro,

      Thanks! That swiftpoint mouse is…kind of weird. Looks like it never got enough food as a baby and had its growth stunted! Intriguing, nonetheless.

      Cheers,
