WE START another audio month (#audiomo) running the length of June and I've started scrolling back on my blog to see if I've actually written about the annual event. It's been running more than 10 years now and I think it survives because of community and its low friction point.
Last year I made a Flickr photo album about AudioMo and I think I'll scrape and save some samples this year too.
One of the greatest pleasures of AudioMo is meeting new voices. And another major pleasure is hearing familiar voices from places like Anchor show up again in my earbuds.
Perhaps the best part of AudioMo is hearing and seeing how people have evolved their conversational style. Christian Payne in England, an AudioMo stalwart, continues sharing audio clips throughout the year and he also maintains a lively Substack. Greg Dickson in Canada, mastered the short form audio format and shares snippets of his work with start-ups. Rich Roberts in America appears in my podcatcher using an Audioboom sting on his Anchor podcast while also streaming live from his New York studio. And Stefano (Slandi) Landi in Canada will definitely return with valuable tips about free and open software.
My first AudioMo contribution involves donating a mattress to Ukraine.
