Hi, I’m Miriam. I design, blog, and instruct over at miriamfelton.com.

I love podcasts. I spend most of my day listening to podcasts while I work. From RadioLab, Stuff you Missed in History Class, Welcome to Night Vale, and many many others. I love the medium. I love the glimpse of other people’s lives. I want to contribute to it.

I was thinking about this a lot this last week or two and then yesterday at 2 am I woke up with an idea. An idea that I could turn into a podcast. So here we go. This is a crazy endeavor considering I know nothing about microphones or digital audio recording, or iTunes uploads. So while I’m figuring this out, go listen to some other podcasts, then come back and see me.
