There are 4 versions of this talk on the R4A server. The numbering is wonky...don't ask:

(OK, I'll tell you, but it will have to be our little secret...Shhhh. I forgot to lower the bitrate on the "individual use" versions. and when I tried to upload the corrected files, the system renumbered the versions. I made this same error on the subsequent two projects I uploaded to R4A, but I'm not going to try to fix this until I figure out how to not end up with renumbered versions.

Remember...don't tell anyone!)

Version 1: The full talk (minus the audience questions) optimized for RADIO PLAY (-24 LUFS Mp3).

Version 3: A 58 minute RADIO READY edit (-24 LUFS Mp3). Includes my intro and outro.

Version 4: The full talk (minus the audience questions) optimized for INDIVIDUAL USE (-19 LUFS Mp3). Identical content to Version 1, but a louder file encoded at a lower bitrate so it uses less storage space on your device.

Version 5: A 58 minute edit of the talk optimized for INDIVIDUAL USE (-19 LUFS Mp3). Identical content to Version 2, but a louder file encoded at a lower bitrate so it uses less storage space on your device.

Would you like to:

1. Download all or part of the Essential Dissent archive in a few clicks via OneDrive?

2. Access my audio in .wav format, which is the highest quality and preferred if you do your own edits for later conversion to a different format?

3. Download episodes that have disappeared from R4A?

4. Access extras such as conference journals which give more detailed information about the presenters, panels and sponsoring organizations?

5. Continue doing all of the above even if R4A becomes defunct?

Send an email to wvought at gmail dot com, requesting the archive link. Include Essential Dissent Archive in the subject line.

If you’re affiliated with a radio station, please tell me your radio station’s call letters and the name of your show. If you’re a podcaster, please tell me the name of your podcast. And if you’re an end user who just wants to stream or download some interesting audio, that’s cool too.

The link will give you access to the Essential Dissent archive (including all subsequent episodes) for as long as the archive is available on OneDrive. (If I ever have reason to move the archive I'll send you the new link.)

A big advantage of this system is that if R4A ever stops working or vanishes altogether, I’ll still be able to post new episodes to the archive, and you’ll still be able to download them. In that case I'll send a notification when I post a new episode (but you can opt out of receiving notifications at any time).

You are welcome to share the link with others, but since I will then not have their email address they will not receive notifications, nor will I be able to send them a new link should that become necessary. It’s best to have them contact me to be added to my email list.

No spam, no fee, no BS, and I’ll remove your email address from my list upon request.
