I’m so excited about creating my first podcast, well technically it wasn’t a podcast, just an audio file. To make it a podcast I would need to attach an RSS feed to it so that people can subscribe … but it was the first step.
I attended some training this week which ran through what makes a great podcast/audio recording, how to go about interviewing people and how to edit the material you get.
We listened to some great examples of recordings people had made and it’s so much more powerful to hear someone talking than reading through a written report or letter. There’s a huge amount of potential for voluntary and community groups and for relatively little money.
It was pretty scary being let loose on the London public, some people REALLY don’t want to be interviewed!
I think we all came away with really good stuff and I can’t wait to get cracking on ICT Hub resources and give them the audio treatment.
[That’s so weird – someone on radio 4 just said “podcast” in my ear]
