Japanese Lesson #67 – Video Edition!

Greetings everyone! Time for our first video podcast. Of course, this didn’t go off without problems. Noticeably are the following: The sound just stinks. I left our big screen TV on in the room, so you can see flickering on us. Also, because we’re not encoding the show live it took a few days to get it put together. Adobe Premier couldn’t read the file generated by our camera, so I ended up bringing the files to work (shhh don’t tell my boss!).

Hopefully despite all the shortcomings you enjoy our first video podcast.
