GeekCorps Mali volunteer Josh Borts wrote this pdf about using a USB enabled flash devices with a mic-in to record audio in the field. He also recommends using Mandrake Linux (user friendly Linux distro) and Audacity (great free audio editing software) to edit and prepare the audio for local radio stations. Cool idea! I’ve been having a hard time finding one of these USB flash audio recorders with a mic-in. Most of them have line-in only.
