Turns Out the Soviet Union was Good for Something After All!

I've been struggling with the audio renditions of my Garrison Center commentaries. For some reason, every host I try wants to cut them a fraction of a second short, clipping off the last syllable or two.

While writing this morning's piece -- on the nanny state versus "free-range kids" -- it occurred to me that ending the audio version with some kind of neutral noise might fix the problem. I thought about using the old, familiar TV "test tone," but I couldn't find it in the frequency I wanted. And then I came across something better. The reading closes with the beep produced by the old Sputnik satellite. Thanks, Nikita!
