Samuel's Persiflage

This month’s Persiflage Puzzle has two words of five and one letters respectively. The clue is “the second word has no vowels”

The main crux of this episode is an interview with world-renowned technology broadcaster Leo Laporte.

Samuel and Leo discuss the upcoming new version of Windows, Windows Vista, and competing operating systems (Leo is a big fan of Apple Mac). Leo is doing some pioneering work in the field of podcasting, and has managed to attract advertisers, Samuel and Leo discuss the success of Leo’s podcast empire and what the future has in store for podcasting and citizen media.

Samuel then pulls a few more letters out of the hat and puts them in the Persiflage Puzzle, pretty much giving away the answer in the process.

The listener feedback is quite sparse this month, Lenny has downloaded iTunes and wants to know how to subscribe to Samuel’s Persiflage, whilst 2CC’s Mike Welsh has sent us a song.

There are a couple thoughts this month, and Samuel starts to babble, so the end music starts to play and Samuel reveals the answer the the Persiflage Puzzle before saying goodbye…or to be more precise “tada”.

The Samuel’s Persiflage #8 file itself is available here, and is 58:26 in length (53.5MB) 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 6.68MB

For those of you who are using podcast software to receive your podcasts, the feed can be found here and if you are using iTunes you can subscribe to Samuel’s Persiflage by clicking here.
