    I noticed this peculiar clip in the title sequence. Notice how only certain parts of the picture flicker, especially the table cloth and the dress on the lady on the foreground. Recalling a certain bit of film history, I ran the frames through certain filters and got….



    Fantastic work! Can you explain the filters?

    It goes like this - the Kinemacolor process consists of alternating red-green filters on film running at twice the normal speed for both shooting and projection (notice that the black and white clip is practically slow-motion). I figured which frames were which by the tablecloth (it appears white on the red filtered frames) and then colored each frame in the opposite color with a brush set to screen mode. To avoid the glitchy seizure-inducing flicker from having the gif alternate between red and green at high speed as in the original process, I merged the pairs of red-green frames into single full color frames in multiply mode. I finished off with some contrast and color correction to give the clip a more natural appearance.

    Podcasters also like the personal connection they have with fans who listen through ear buds or headphones, which can make shows feel more intimate than other forms of media.

    Mars said he keeps that in mind and mikes himself more closely than he used to. This allows him to use a quieter voice, which he calls a “head voice,” in the hopes of more closely connecting with listeners.

    I like that concept.

    A better view of why we bought another mega wrench. RF! (at Minnesota Public Radio)

    Eamon is one of our engineers for the radio station. Not the knob-fiddling engineer (though he’s good at that, too), but the climb-a-tower-and-make-sound-waves-go-through-the-air engineer. His job is really cool.

    "Women don’t tell us on a regular basis how dangerous it is living and loving us."

    I have this revelation regularly with my wife when she opens up to me about the things that she does to check on her surroundings and safety. I am stunned every time that I’ve never even had to consider the things she takes for granted as precautions.
