In the late 90s to early 2000s, I found on Napster a techno (possibly trance?) song which had a quote from Carl Sagan's "Contact". It was not a sample from the movie. This dialogue does not appear in the movie. [more inside]

Hacking around sound cancellation on Google+ and Skype: Two tier question here about a related problem. Firstly, a way to sidetrack the software audio limits of a Google+ Hangout. Secondly, a way to stop Skype from cancelling out audio from one half of a conversation. [more inside]
Uploading audio from weekly church sermons to online playback site (speaking only, no music). That part is simple. Getting the audio files from several different churches in different locations (even cross-country) is the tough part. How to set up a relatively dummy-proof system to record and transmit audio files to me? [more inside]
I've been invited to participate in a fancy East Coast sound-art conference in a few weeks. I'm across the country. They don't have ISDN. What's the best way for me to participate live and interactively via the Internet? (Audio, obviously, not just text.) [more inside]
A friend of mine asked: "Back when I did tech support, there was an audio file that made its way around the office and the (somewhat nascent) internet. A woman was shrieking about having been on hold for over an hour, and she says the phrase, "... you help me now, or it's war, buddy!" Can anyone help me hunt this down? It has to be out there somewhere! Thanks!"
Can I listen to NBA basketball games on internet streaming audio? Specifically the Portland Trailblazers, but other might feel differently. Their radio station is 95.5 The Game but when I clicked during a game the other day, there was a talk show on.
What is the best software for recording streaming AM radio stations? There are late night shows on, some that have podcasts but some that don't. I want to 'set it and forget it' and have the results in an mp3 format.

Is there any free software to capture audio broadcasts from the internet? I am a novice. I am not sure how to go about it. There are a few sites that will play through real audio but i would like to capture a file in a format such as mp3 to my desktop that I can burn to disc to listen in my car. Sorry for the lack of technical terms. I am new to trying to do this and am not sure where to look or how to do it. I run an IMac with OS 10.5.2...Thanks for your time!
Why can't I listen to conference calls on Yahoo Finance? (using Mac Safari/Firefox) [more inside]
Important Skype Issue! I primarily use Skype for voicemails, however I am getting lots of complaints that Skype's line is busy. Every time I open Skype the preferences are set to only allow calls from people in my contact list. I keep setting them to allow calls from anyone and they keep going back to only accepting calls from people in my contacts list. [more inside]
Know any good alternatives to Odeo? I love the simplicity of Odeo and use it to email audio instructions. However, Odeo seems overloaded and it can take days to upload recordings. Who else has entered this space and is servicing it better than Odeo?
Low latency, medium fidelity, jam sessions on the internet. NINJAM is too buggy :( [more inside]

Hi all, longtime lurker, first-time poster. I’m keen to sort out our home with digital radio access, but some seemingly incompatible demands have got me stuck. [more inside]
I spend most of my work day listening to interview and essay type radio shows on the internet. My favorite, of course, is This American Life. I also love Fresh Air . I've checked out Radio 4 a little, and sometimes I listen to Democracy Now and even more rarely Air America. Keeping in mind what I already like, what else would you recommend I listen to? [more inside]
How can I down load music, specifically streaming audio, from the Internet? Are there are programs that can capture the audio and save it directly to your computer in a common format, that is, anything that I can later burn into a CD?
I'm looking for an inexpensive set-up to allow me to do portable podcasting. Is there a good combination of MP3 player and microphone that can be had for less than, say, $350 that would still result in decent audio quality? [more inside]
Laptops (again). I want to buy one. Specifically, I want to know which laptop is the best for multi-track audio editing (and why). Aditionally, which software should I use if I want to create stories "pro" enough for radio journalism? Do I have to get pricey studio stuff? Finally, when people out there submit already-produced audio stories to say BBC, NPR, PRI, Pacifica . . . is there a simple way to send the files via email? What kind of file would it have to be?
I'm looking for streaming Japanese-language talk or news radio. Specifically, I'm looking for a live feed rather than short clips (the latter of which I seem to find tons of), and preferably low-bandwidth audio-only rather than video. I don't read Japanese, so searching is difficult.
What's the difference between podcasting and mp3blogging?
What is the best software for a radio station to use when streaming live audio via the internet? Similarly, what piece of software do most individuals use to listen to webcasts? [MI] [more inside]
