The Ghost in the Machine

I recorded a new podcast this week. The software I'm using to mix it is GarageBand on my iMac. It's all going smoothly except for one problem: I'm having a terrible time with Siri. I can't get her to leave me alone. 

It wouldn't be so bad, but the artist does a lot of work with manipulated paper, and so every time Siri hears "cut" or "paste," well..., you can imagine what happens next. I'm wrestling with a bunch of audio fragments that are self-generated. And they're spawning like virtual rabbits.

On the plus side, the podcast is great. If only I can banish the ghost in the machine.
