GeekNights Monday - Vacuum Cleaners

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the humble vacuum cleaner.You definitely don't want to be in a situation where a shop vac would be the solution to your problem and you do not have a shop vac. Also these are "not a scam." In the news, necrobotic spiders are a thing, Amazon continues to rush toward being a full-on dystopian megacorb, and Netflix has 90 seconds to get your attention.

The audio tracks in the main bit of this episode are misaligned. You are artificially talking over each other and I don’t car enough about vacuum cleaners to listen to it this way.


I double checked and they are 100% aligned. The audio in the show is exactly what we recorded to within 50ms.

That must be how we talked in this episode.

I checked the uploaded final file and the original sequence (since I keep the original raw track-separated sequences for a year).

Green is my raw audio direct from the microphone.

Orange is Scott’s locally recorded raw audio from his microphone (sent to me after the show).

Gray is Scott’s audio as I hear it while we’re recording, synched with mine.

Is there a difference in the audio if you listen to the YouTube version? That one sounded just fine to me.
