Let’s Have a Conversation

As a podcaster, I’m in monologue mode. I’m largely limited to my thoughts & my feelings, and more importantly, my experience. Of course, I do what I can to research others’ ideas and experience. I’m involved in homesteader groups and forums. But I don’t do the podcast just to hear the sound of my own voice. I value feedback. I prefer a dialogue.

You can share in this conversation in the following ways:

Leave a Post Reply

Each blog post has the ability for you to post comments or questions for that particular post. Please note that these comments are public. Just scroll to the bottom of the post page you wish to comment on, where it says, “Enter your comment here…”, just enter your question or comment and select the “Post Comment” button. If you are not logged into WordPress, you may be prompted for your user info. That’s it!

Contact Page

If you prefer to keep your comment or question private, just select the Contact tab on the menu bar at the top of the Higher Octave site. Follow the directions on that page to submit your comment.


I’m always available via email: lance.knoechel@higher-octave.com and responsive, so if you do not hear back from me within a few days, it may have gone into the spam folder. Try using the Contact page above.


This is a great tool, especially for podcasters. SpeakPipe allows you to leave a voicemail via the Higher Octave website. If you would like to leave a voice message that may be included in future episodes, this is the way to do it. Just select the “Send Voicemail” badge on the far right middle of the Higher Octave web site and follow the directions. Of course, your computer will need a microphone. The voicemail message is currently limited to 90 seconds, so be brief and to the point. SpeakPipe will give you the opportunity to review your message and redo it if necessary.

If you are using an iPhone or iPad, you will need to have the free SpeakPipe IOS app installed. Just click on the link here.

Since I’m not an Android or Windows phone user, I’m not sure of the process yet for those devices. But if you select the SpeakPipe button, it may prompt you to install the software. I’d love to hear from you on how that works out.
