Perhaps this sign is just lost?

Really, my first thought was, "Hey, a payphone – you don’t see many of those anymore!"

My temporary podcasting kit is proving to be very attractive in terms of convenience and portability. Microphone, mini-disc recorder and a laptop running Audacity. A 15 minute podcast takes about 30 minutes to produce this way (excluding research and preparation). 10 minutes recording (music is added later), 10 minutes post-production and encoding the MP3, 10 minutes uploading, publishing to blog and updating the feed (which I do manually).
Because I am currently without broadband at home, I do the upload and publishing from a public wifi hotspot.
What’s missing? Not much. I can’t do phone interviews with this gear. When I had my full studio setup, I used a PC running Skype and an external sound mixer. (I probably need to buy some kind of telephone hybrid now that I no longer have broadband.) Using a mixer allowed me to mix other sounds (such as music) in live which saves on the editing later – but in my case, because the podcast is so short, it’s actually quicker to import a 5 minute MP3 into Audacity than it is to sit there while it plays in real time!

From the days when Mobile Phones weren’t quite as mobile, I guess.
