A change of scenery for Carol and Steve as they drive to the health club in the Beetle.
Why does it look so white when you look out the car window? An exposure issue with my Canon S400 that I used to shoot this episode. User error I'm sure.
After shooting, I was watching an old episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, from 2000, for guidance on how to use music in the show, and saw a very similar rear view mirror shot. That show is great.
I used Apple's Soundtrack application to make the music. I think it turned out pretty well.
In the show, I mentioned that I was going to listen to some shows on my iPod. For those of you who don't know, you can use software on your computer to automatically download shows that you are intertested in, and then load them onto your iPod. This is called podcasting.
The total time for all these podcasts was 4.6 hours. That's becuse Chris Pirillo's first show was three hours long. Hey Chris, you've got to send out your shows in little chunks.
Keep those comments coming! I love hearing from you AND forwarding the comments along to Carol. That way she believes me when I tell her that people are watching. ;-)

From their site:
Your clients will be prompted to download a small applet, which will improve their download rates. They will immediately notice much faster load times and better download performance, as they will be downloading your link from a number of different sources. Even if your original link is not popular, the service quality to your clients will be the same.
Each of your users will pull from multiple local Red Swoosh peers simultaneously. This results in download and streaming speeds that will dwarf what they can get from the typical web server. On average our customers are able to deliver files at 3 times the speed to their users using Swoosh Mirror.
