As an avid podcast listener, I've been hankering for a return the world of audio conversations. What always trips me up is the amount of time it takes to accomplish "post-production" on podcasts. So I've decided to forego complications and simply try to record a weekly Facebook Live conversation that will be shared "as is", stumbles and all.
