For anyone new to podcasting I’d recommend listening to this episode.
At Podcast Academy 2, held in 2006, The Conversations Network’s founder and Gigavox Media’s CTO, Doug Kaye, goes back to basics about podcasting. What started out as a hobby turned into the recording of hundreds of events, which otherwise would have evaporated without being heard. Kaye comments on how IT Conversations got started, and explains why he and other got into podcasting.
For some it is a passion, for others a means of promoting a message, for others still it is a means to archiving and distributing the vast wealth of events happening every single day. The numbers are up, millions of new listeners participate each month. Podcasting is filling the on-demand niche of topics that regular broadcasters would never be able to deliver.
The fact that podcasts are immensely popular is not enough, however. With many new podcasts each day, learning the basics is still a necessity. From finding events which interest you, to recording, producing and publishing podcasts via the internet, Kaye highlights some of the key points a beginner podcaster needs to know. Most important of all, however, is to get out there and do it, don’t get bogged down with specifics and be willing to change and experiment.
