The New Story Wrap Up… Podcast 19

Last Wednesday, Clarence, Darren and Kathy and I were joined by Cheryl Oakes as we put a wrap on our series about telling the new story. In reality, it’s hard to wrap up so the stories will continue.

My apologies to Jeff Utecht and others who waited patiently for the Skypecast to begin. Not completely understanding how Skypecast works, I went ahead and began the conference call as I usually have done only to realize that you need to login on the Skypecast website. My bad.

Also you’ll notice I’m linking to the file on Internet archive rather than the nifty little podpress player I used in earlier podcasts. This is because podpress files must be encoded with a sample rate in multiples of 11.025 kHz or else it sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks. I tried for hours to get this done in Audacity but failed miserably. I did it with the previous podcasts but not sure what I did differently. If anyone can help, please let me know. I followed this tutorial but it didn’t seem to help.

One Pingback/Trackback

  • Hi Dean, Nice job with the editing! Although I think the whole conversation about skypecast could be a show sometime! I enjoyed listening to the show, it is nice to put a voice with all the words and faces I’ve come to know. Hope to be online with you all again soon.
    Check out my 3rd graders voice and reflections about standardized online tests we have taken.
    It is my highpoint of this week.
    Over and out. Cheryl

  • Hey Dean, no worries. Thanks for posting the podcast so we can all enjoy the conversation.



  • Hey Darren… anytime you wanna bring those shownotes skills somewhere else… you let me know!

    Would love to do a show on podcasting… and get into the specifics of getting the audio right. I have a feeling that if we get the whole community together, we’ll have all the info we need. Bit from you guys… little bit elsewhere… in the mean time, we’ve got a list of stuff over at

  • Boy Dean — did you hit the nail on the head when you suggested that the blogosphere allows us to read from a group of all stars who we would love to bring together in one school — but what’s wonderful about the blogosphere is that we can all collaborate without being under the same roof, or hemisphere for that matter. Great series — Thanks!

    Arvind Grover and I are interviewing Chris Lehmann at on Friday, June 11, 2006 at 12:00pm EST — We just graduated from the Webcast Academy — and this will be our first EdTechTalk Webcast. We hope to continue telling the new story there!
