Hear This: On Digital Media, Episode #8

John Federico

Episode #8 of On Digital Media was posted on Friday. I had to ask my friendly neighborhood audio engineer to tweak it. Apparently, both my mic and Chia-Lin's were a bit over-modulated. The same friendly neighborhood audio engineer is supposed to be in attendance for this week's episode to help me get my act together...
