I guess the key is: do they help? Do people find them of value? Should I continue down this path?
I suppose this could be one of those things where there could be a million people trying to learn german and 4% of them find this stuff helpful. But that's 40,000 people. A lot! So maybe the question shouldn't be a democracy sort of thing, but more of a "is there enough interest" sort of thing.
And part of the devious plot is the idea that if this is of value to people trying to learn german, maybe there will be lots of people out there that have never heard of permaculture before and so we will infect more brains with this information. (BWA HA HA HA HA!)
Susanne is game to do more, provided that we get sufficient feedback that people actually think it helps and they will listen to more. Maybe that's the thing to do: just look at the numbers of downloads.
...maybe it's just a slow-growing thing. Being one of your pod people, (who emulate you in insane levels of busy-ness,) I'm interested in the German-ish (oid?) podcast, but only discovered it this morning. My goal is similar, to be able to read Sepp Holzer's work in the original and to be able to help you achieve galactic domination. Perhaps there's a way to more widely distribute your first three podcasts in other venues that would hook in folks interested in German for other reasons and follow up if we can develop a demand... and eventually podify them as well.
What? There were more... I listened to the first one and liked it.
I tried to learn German few years ago and found that Lingq.com had a pretty good concept. They have many articles and their associated audio versions. You listen to the same article over and over again and you can read it too. After a while you pick up more an more words. It is totally free and they have a large library of articles. Unfortunately no articles on permaculture.
I have been listening to Part One and remembering learning German in high school a verrrry long time ago. We struggled with the 't-s' sound until our teacher made us all say 'pizza' ten times then drop the 'pi' from it lol.
