It’s rough, it’s a little boring in spots, and there are way too many "uhm’s and Ah’s", but it is, after all, my first try. Please be gentle with me! It’s also a bit long and may take a minute to start playing.  I promise that future audio posts will be MUCH shorter!   Here …

First Audio attempt

Welcome/ Shazzer Speaking (PUN) I’ve been interested in audio blogging for a long time but just hadn’t gotten around to gathering up the tools to do it.
