Dog Days of Podcasting: The Swimming Lesson

Dog Days of Podcasting

It’s almost midnight, and I had no plans for anything specific to post today, but then I wrote this right before friends came for dinner.

Here’s an excerpt of The Swimming Lesson:

“Don’t let go, Dad!” The boy shrieks as his father tugs him further away from the steps.

“I’ve got you,” the man assures. “Kick your feet. I promise I won’t let go.”

The boy kicks furiously, sending frothy water in every direction, while his father holds his hands, and walks backwards in circles, providing momentum and balance for his child.

Dog Days of Podcasting

I’m late to the Dog Days of Podcasting party, but I’ve been following it as a listener since it started.

At first, I was intimidated, because while I’ve been involved in lots of other people’s podcasts and audio dramas, I’ve never really done one of my own.

SoundCloud, though, allows me to record stuff right from my iPad – and I’m enough of a technology geek that the notion appealed to me.

So, here’s my first entry. Please be kind.
