After a a hiatus of more than a year, I’m finally back on the podcasting wagon again with a new episode of Take Control of Podcasting on the Mac, the companion podcast to my ebook of the same name. I’m doing something fun with the newly revitalized show. I am going to be building a home studio for myself including buying new audio hardware, creating a better acoustic space, learning more about audio plugins so I can produce better sound, and experimenting with new hardware. But rather than just doing this and producing a new show with the better technology, I am going to podcast the process. I will talk about my research, what I have found, what I am looking at, solicit opinions, interview other podcasters and slowly add in the changes so people can see how the show improves (or at least evolves) over time. In this way, we all learn together. At least, that’s the plan. This process will be a nice lead-in to our presentation at the New Media Expo this summer as well.
I have to be honest: it felt good to do a show. There’s a reason I took up this hobby in the first place. It’s nice to be reminded of that and have a chance to play again.
