Testing FIR at high speed

In FIR #155 yesterday, we spoke of our experiment re show length and our target of aiming for a 60-minute show. We also included an audio comment from Eric Tobler who had a proposal for creating a version of the MP3 file that reduces the show length (time) by a considerable amount.

Eric has generously responded with a version of yesterday’s show that has reduced the length from 69 minutes to just under 43 minutes.

If you’d like to listen and let us know your opinion about this potential solution to show length, download the MP3 and let us know what you think by a leaving a comment to this post. Or you can listen right now from this page:

Thanks. And especially, thanks to Eric.
