PS Cast: Audio Experiment

Posted in Other,PSCast:S2 by Ziggy Wednesday January 14, 2015 at 00:15

You might well point out that this whole podcast thing is really just one big experiment, but this episode is even more-so. I’m not going to transcribe it. I was trying to record audio by using my headphones as a microphone. It didn’t work super great, but it creates pretty good binaural stereo, so there’s that. Listen if you want to, I think I had some interesting things to say somewhere in there.


PS Cast: God and Fear

Today I talk about Japan’s Work Ethic compared to the one in the US.

[Terrible Musical Intro]

Welcome to a rainy day Paul Spooner Podcast.

So I was thinking about the way that people have… [musical intro continues] Hmm, I may have to continue this another time.

So I’ve been considering how people in Japan have a different attitude toward work than people in America. (When I say “America” I mean the United States of America, but it’s easier to just say “America”, maybe I should just say “The US”) They have a different attitude toward work… not necessarily a better one, and I think that it’s easy to be like “Ohh, the Japanese have a BETTER attitude!” It’s better in ways, but it’s also worse in ways.
