Title: Anyone tried to produce their own podcast?
Post by: Super Famicom on October 22, 2006, 12:39:45 pm
Blogging keeps me busy but I thought I'd try to record a podcast. I got all the software set, worked out how to publish it to iTunes, came to record and it's just so difficult.

It's like recording an hour long voicemail message to someone you really want to impress!

Having tried it myself makes me appreciate what Steve does even more, I'll have another go, as soon as I get over my stage fright...!

Have you considered using a program like Audacity to record your podcast in sections and then stitching it together later?

And you don't absolutely have to be a whole hour, do you?

I would suggest practicing in Audacity too and doing no more than 30 mins. Try not to think that your doing something in front of others but just relax and talk like you normally would.

I also think it sounds better if it's coming from you and not from a piece of paper. I think even if it means there's a couple of stutters and 'um's and 'ah's it sounds much friendly if you're saying what you think with a few que notes rather than writing a speach and reading it out to us. Might as well stick to the blog if you do that.

careful with the Um and uh's though, you don't need to script it but just have some notes and sort of a running sheet to say where you intend on going with what you are saying.

Neosound FX is really good and you can edit out all the um's and ah's

I just started one on Talkshoe to get things going. I'll move to something more feature-filled as it grows, but it allows live call-ins using Skype or land line, live chat, etc., and it's free! Here's the URL:

I had one going on for a while. Work kicked my a$$ though and had to stop doing it for a while.

All it took was a few hours of planning a week. It's pretty rewarding once people start listening. Make sure you use all the podcasting resources you can find to promote yourself. Mine was on the front Yahoo.com/podcasts page for a few weeks. Good luck :)
