[Pdx-pm] Future of podcasting is dim! (was: Re: What I Learned at OSCON -- August meeting announcement)

Just an FYI for the meeting tomorrow:  the podcast transceiver is
broken.  FreeGeek is unfortunately a bit too chaotic to reliably leave
equipment without a great risk of breakage.  The microphone is pretty
much on its last legs, and the receiver now seems to be completely
dead.  I think FOSCON (damn rubyists) killed it.  So, my question is:
are people interested in the podcasts at all?  I really don't want to
spend the money on another wireless microphone set that will probably
get destroyed again if no one cares or listens to these.  If people do
find the podcast useful, would anyone be interested in contributing a
few bucks to buy another microphone?  They are $80 at Frys.

So, informal survey: do you like the podcasts?  Do you listen to them
from time to time?  Would you like to see them continue, or would you
prefer that we save our valuable tubes for more important things like
porn and internet gambling?
