Please excuse the audio quality in the episode & feel free to skip if it's too painful on the ears. In the episode, I mainly talk about my two most recent cars as I couldn’t think of anything else to talk about off the cuff.

I know you said you didn't need this, but...

I was going to comment on your last show where you said you didn't think any processing was necessary.

While I agree content is king, you might find this tip handy. When I record in noisy environments, I record a few seconds without speaking to pick up the background noise.

The reason for this is so that you can use those seconds as a model for noise reduction in audacity. Only takes a few seconds to process in audacity so it's not much more work.

Since this is a common practice, did you try this?

Great concept for a show... so I pinched it!

I managed to get the gist of what you were trying to say... although I don't believe that any level of processing would have been able to tidy up what was ultimately recorded. I find that in noisy environments, a low gain recorder with the microphone nice and close to your mouth tends to make you heard much better.

I've just uploaded (what will be) episode 2400, where I basically pinch your idea, and drive the 28 miles into my work, and spend most of the time talking about the 14 cars I've had! :-)

When I recorded this show, the only thing I did was push the file through Auphonic to level it out, there was no noise reduction applied... and I do have a fairly noisy car.

I would definitely like to hear another attempt from you at this! :-)
