And for my 100th podfic (I'm counting the micro-podfics individually, but not their translations, even if they're all posted together), I give you a repod of my very first podfic. I've fiddled with it in the past and I did record it once more back in November, but I'm only posting this version (from March).
This podfic went though a few versions over the years. I recorded the first one back in June 2012, my very first podfic. I hated the sound of my own voice back then and barely got though the editing process - there was a lot of noise, because I was using an older version of Audacity and it was hard to get the right amount of noise reduction, and I had a couple of repeat lines left in, because I didn't have the patience to listen to myself all the way though after I thought I was done editing. I then went back to it and edited it in November of that year, after Lunchee gave it a listen and pointed out what was wrong - that's the version that's still up in the original post. Then, in November 2013 I re-recorded it to track my progress, but I never posted it - I had switched to a better mic, but I didn't have a pop-filter yet and I thought it was too distracting. This version I recorded this March with another mic, as my 100th podfic.
The current version is 5 minutes longer than the first - my reading pace has slowed down considerably since then. I've also started enjoying editing a lot more than than I expected. I made a post here with all the differences, including screencaps of the waveforms and samples from all three versions.
