Hey Aly, you should really post MP3s. Not all of us have iPods/iTunes. :(

Hmmm...Not sure I know how yet? I was just going with what garageband spits out. I will try to do an mps for the next podcast. I guess I would have to import the finished m4a back into audacity to chrun out an mp3. I imagine i would lose the click track option though...and lots of folks like that. The pics too. If I had more spare cash I guess I could have two feeds...one enhanced and one plain.

As for producing an MP3, it should be trivial from Audacity, as long as you have the LAME encoder dll installed. I also believe it should be an option in Garage Band - The Dawn and Drew Show comes out in MP3, and I'm pretty sure they use Garage Band for all production. BTW, you must know how to make an MP3 since your first two shows are MP3 ;)

However in going with MP3, yes, you would lose chapter markings and any embedded images. So it's a question of what you and your listeners want more - fancy features, but limited playability, or a stripped-down show in a universally playable format. If you can't have both, then it's up to you to decide.

I guess if I'm the first person to complain up until now, you could just stick with the m4a files. If non-iTunes folk really want to listen, Winamp or the Quicktime Player can handle it. Unfortunately that's not a portable option and I, personally, listen to 99% of podcasts away from my computers.

It may be causing you to lose listeners and it may not. Again, at least the option for MP3 would be ideal, but if that's not possible, the world will not end. A hellmouth may open, but the world itself will carry on. :)

Yeah i have the lamelib thingy and can totally do it in audacity. I have been recording and doing the basic editing in audacity then importing into garageband to add click tracks and sound loops. I will try to do the next one in mp3 format and see if anyone complains or numbers improve...I did not realize that the mp4 was so exclusive to itunes...what do you listen on? iriver? on of the phone ones? Maybe I can republish the old ones in mp3 as well...

I listen mostly with an iRiver, or for music casts, MP3s burned to CD-RW. There's no need to repost the old shows in MP3 just for li'l ol' me - I'll listen to those on my laptop.

It might be a question worth asking on your show before you go changing the way you do things. I dunno.
