    I’ve listened to the AV Rant Podcast for years (as far back dating to Dina as Tom’s co-host). Always love listening to it on my way to work. Been a long time lurker and for the first time ever, I had to throw a comment on this special episode. Just have to say that this is an AMAZING episode and easily one of the best resource for anybody that is willing to dip in the rabbit hole of video archiving. I too have gotten deep into this and have spent a ridiculous amount in acquiring the necessary equipment and tools for it. I second the recommendation of visiting DigitalFAQ to do your research. Read up and ask questions. Just be aware though, if you do join the site and ask questions, have thick skin coz there are a lot of very “passionate” members in that forum that can come off very condescending and curmudgeonly. :). Anyway, Thank you Lee and Rob for putting this together.
