    How’s the budget, can you guys possibly afford a decent microphone for your video camera? Audio is video, as they say.

    That video is useless. I can’t understand what the subject is saying.

    Why would you post it?

    It doesn’t cost anything to conduct an interview indoors. Y’all need to compare this with what City of Ate is doing. Today has a cooking lesson on pork rillettes from Brian Luscher. Why doesn’t Side Dish step up and deliver content of that quality?

    This isn’t so bad it’s good, it’s just plain bad. For a website that thinks it so greatly popular. How much is a friggin’ windscreen anyway?

    I’m just happy to see that Mr. Chalk is using a new, higher resolution camera. Much, much better video now.

    Worthless subject and worthless video
