MikeyPod 19 | Houston Farmer’s Market

Last week, Riding with the Window Down’s Chris Doelle and I combined forces to bring you a soundseeing tour of the Houston Farmer’s Market. Here’s who we ran into:

Honi from Jolie Vue Farms.
Anita from A Remarkable Experience
Janet from ???? (sorry, I didn’t write anything down)
Gus- again I didn’t catch the name of his farm, but his story gives a strong argument for organic farming.
Janice from Words and Foods. I bought her Potato, Orange and Rosemary Soup. It kicked ass.
Robin from Central City Co-op

sidenote: i need to get my audio better. any suggestions? I think what I need is possibly a new soundcard? maybe a mixer? pre-amp? compressor? There is this high pitch that creeps in and I can’t figure out where it is coming from, and my voice sounds too soft, but if I turn it up, the whistle gets louder too. I welcome any suggestions.
