  1. Don’t be fooled, Erk. In some places in the U.S. (such as Compton) it’s likely that someone would be shot for an iPod. It’s funny that you mentioned Compton. I was going to warn you to stay away from there ’cause I know it’s relatively close to LAX. But riding the train through shouldn’t be a problem. Just don’t get off at the station.

    Here’s a tip: If you’ve got an audio file with information that’s panned hard left/right, you can actually transcode that file from stereo to mono, and the audio will now be heard on both the left and right channels. I know it sounds counter intuitive. But doing this basically flattens the stereo image to one channel, and then the device reading the file (iPod, computer, etc.) sends the same information to both the left and right speakers. It’s not a true stereo image, but at least it’s not being sent to only one speaker. I actually transcoded Erk Pod 176 to mono so it’d be easier to listen to on headphones.
