With all the recent talk about podcasts, you may have wondered how you can create your own. How can you record and distribute via podcast whatever valauble things you have to say? We have recently come across some helpful material that seemed worth highlighting for you.
At Boston University, Podcast Academy recently held a two-day seminar, led by seasoned technology veterans, that offered a very comprehensive overview of the craft. The topics covered here ranged from getting started with recording, editing and publishing podcasts; to developing a personal style; to working with the right equipment; to knowing how to get podcasts listed in search engines and also monetize them. You can review and stream all of the presentations in video from this page. Plus you can also find here copies of the PDFs used in these talks. This is an excellent resource for starting out.
Apple's Podcast Recipe
Given that Apple helped more than anyone to give life to podcasting, it only makes sense that they would offer some primers. You can find here a three-part seminar created by Apple experts, who offer their wisdom on how to create a great-sounding podcast, produce a professional show, and then promote it. These presentations are also available in video, and they are free. However, you do need to register with Apple before you can start watching the presentations.
Nuts and Bolts Primers
The materials above don't really walk you through the actual technical mechanics of creating a podcast, so we have added here a few primers that will really give you the real nuts and bolts.
If you closely review all of these materials, you should soon be ready to develop your first podcast, create a professional sound, and bring it to listeners who will benefit from what you have to say. If you know of any other great resources that should be added to this collection, feel free to let us know.
