#ldconf Podcast: our Obama fringe in full

Liberal Democrat Voice at Conference

Now that we are home, and have access to slightly more reliably computers than our trusty laptops using the over-subscribed conference centre network, we can poke around a bit more and find out what was stopping us bringing your the recording of our highly successful fringe meeting last night.

If you were following our twitter feed, you may already have seen a series of short messages giving the outline, but we are now very pleased to bring our the full recording.

As our twitter readers will know, we booked a woefully inadequate room for the fringe: all but alone in our time slot, far more than the 60 we had seats for came to hear our speakers. Conference centre staff, concerned for the safety of those present, asked us to remove half of the people in the room, then removed a dividing wall so that we could have twice the space planned. And this, too, was not big enough for all who came, and we had a large number of people standing.

As you join the evening, the wall had just fallen, people sat down, and Alix asked the audience for a show of hands – who’s read the site? and who never has? The audio recording cannot unfortunately show the answer – which was about half and half. And that’s actually a good thing: the reason we thought it was worth paying a fair amount of money to hold a fringe meeting was to expose Lib Dem Voice to still more of our core audience.

Do enjoy the recording – and let us know what you think.

    “…we booked a woefully inadequate room for the fringe…”

    But don’t you know that’s a long-standing Conference tradition? LDV has arrived!
