In our golden age of learning and sharing, podcasting is playing a powerful role in connecting people with ideas as well as each other. In this kickoff session to our podcasting experience, we’ll explore podcasting from the perspective of both podcast consumer and producer. On the consumption side, we’ll highlight different podcasting examples, podcatching apps, and techniques for using smart assistants (Google Home / Alexa) to enjoy as well as subscribe to podcasts. On the production side, we’ll highlight software tools and apps for podcast recording, editing, normalization and publishing. We’ll cover the basics of podcasting technology requirements as well as tips for planning, storyboarding, interviewing, and finding or creating audio for your episodes. We’ll also highlight ways YouTube can be used as a podcasting / webshow platform, and efficient workflows for converting web video to compressed, download-friendly audio.
