Samuel’s Persiflage Episode Number Eleven has sprung into life (possibly chased by singing sheep), and is waiting for you to download it. There is also a low quality version for the bandwidth impaired here.

This month’s Persiflage Puzzle has three words of nine, three, and five letters respectively. The clue is “The first person to write about Santa’s wife, Mrs. Claus”.
As we rapidly approach Christmas, it is hard not to talk about it, and this month we chat with Bill Grady, host of You Are The Guest about what Christmas means to him, and how it affects people around the world. Bill shares a funny Christmas story from his childhood, and the interview is quite possibly the first purposefully “networked” interview in the history of podcasting, having previously appeared in a slightly different version on You Are The Guest #68
Samuel seems to have found some Christmas music to replace the normal music, and the original Samuel’s Persiflage intro is in there somewhere.
There is also some feedback.
All listeners are invited to send in more feedback, both in written and audio format. As per usual feedback can be sent to email@example.com (text, MP3, Wave or Ogg Vorbis), spoken feedback by clicking here or on the button below would be great, or leave a comment below.
The Samuel’s Persiflage #11 file itself is available here, and is 1:08:49 in length (63.0MB) at 128kbps stereo. The 128kbps format was decided upon because it produces a very good sound quality, and doesn’t “flatten” any music used in the podcast. I do, however, acknowledge that this is just unreasonable for dial-up, so a 16kbps mono file is also available here. The sound quality isn’t as good, but some people like it. The low quality version is 7.87MB
Podcast related questions and comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or left in the comments section of this post. Spoken feedback is preferred (but not mandated) and can be sent either in MP3, Wave or Ogg Vorbis format, or sent even more easily by clicking the button below and following the prompts.
The Best of Samuel’s Persiflage for 2005/2006 will be released on New Years Day (in theory), with regular episodes resuming later in January. From the Samuel’s Persiflage production team (OK, so there is only one person, and he is the executive producer and presenter) have a great Christmas and New Year, take it easy, and I look forward to your company on Samuel’s Persiflage in the new year.
