Below is the text version of the audio.
(Show notes are beneath the text.)

 

“A corporation that owns a whole bunch of media properties, online and off. The business started in San Francisco in 1865 with one weekly paper.” Mr. Liaberco frowned. “Oddly enough, the company has always been managed by a maiden aunt and her nephew.”

Nessa leaned against Jack. He wrapped his arm around her waist.

“If Jack is the Pryer’s new owner, and even his editor doesn’t know, how did you find out?” Nessa asked.

“Because I’m the best at what I do. Ask Jack. Sly Liaberco always comes out ahead.”

“Not this time,” Jack said.

SHOW NOTES

We’re new to the Audacity, the sound program we use for our audio recordings, and to sound effects in general. These are our thoughts on the current episode.

Recording. We recorded this segment in three takes, after three practice runs with the microphone off.

Technical. The microphone picked up the sound of rain outside the window, creating too much background noise to get the recording to acceptable final levels.

Comments. The acting was difficult this week. Working on the inflections and almost forgot Mr. Liaberco’s deep drawl.

Story changes. No changes to the written version this week. The sentence structure and words worked well in the switch from text to audio.
