One opinion on “JobCast: Requirements for Getting and Keeping a Job When You’re Blind

  1. Hey there, Darrell. Thanks for the plug for my podcast. The mics that I’m using are a set of older radio shack mics which I do believe are little audiotechnicas. They are omnidirectional, and each one is the size of the eraser head of a pencil. They are clipped to somewhere on the body with little alligator clips, or you can actually put them behind your ears without the clips, and that works quite beautifully. I put them on my sleeves when I’m wearing a sweatsuit, or when I have on a polo shirt, I put one on each collar. That’s how I get the binaural sound. They terminate into an eighth-inch plug, and they fit right into the Iriver with its external mic setting set. There you go. By the way, I just listened to the really neat marriage proposal, and that was just so totally awesome, dude! Abby and I were in a movie theater with the lights down low when I proposed to her. I held her left hand behind her back; slipped on that little engagement ring; and then I popped the question. You could have heard her squeal all the way out the front door, right out there where the popcorn and stuff was! It was great! Anyway, congratulations to you both. I hope this message is helpful to you, and good luck on finding some mics. Try and see what you can find there. They have some of the best, from what I’ve heard. All the best from our house to yours!
