Podcast 2006.1: Why podcasting? Podcast Rigs, the underground blogosphere, Dirtyspoke, and how I stained my underwear.

Filed as Podcasts on July 30, 2006 10:05 pm

Welcome to our first official podcast here at The Blog Herald. We’re excited to launch this new portion of our coverage of the blogosphere and hope that you find it interesting as well.

You can subscribe directly to our podcast feed.

As you’ll hear me discuss in the podcast, our professional grade equipment isn’t here yet – and we’re still learning how to use the audio editing software that we’re testing – but we are off to a good start.

We plan on posting a few podcasts a week – and perhaps more as we bring some others into the podcasting fold here at The Blog Herald.

We’re also interested in doing voice interviews (Skype is acceptable as well) of those in the blogosphere. Drop us a note if you’re interested.

    Always good to see someone else adding podcasting to their blog. However, I noticed some audio inconsistencies in the first five minutes. If you aren’t monitoring your vocals as you go, I’d suggest starting. Good luck to you.

    Hi,

    Thanks – we definately have some work to do but it’s a start. We’ll get better – and the professional gear is on the way… ;)

    Thanks for the kind words,
    M

    Pretty good job, Matt – well done.

    As the first commenter said, you had some small issues with sound consistentcy throughout – but I know nothing about podcating so can’t help you out :-)

    I like the concept – I could easily listen to a 20 minutes show that included 10-15 short pieces of blogging news with your opinions after each piece (and when I say opinon I mean a real opinion ie: make it colorful).

    I wouldn’t want you to go on too long with a story though – make ‘em quick and snappy – maybe incorporate a small 2-3 second interlude sound bit between them – and make sure you keep to a regular schedule: one thing I hate with many podcasts is they start great: 1 show a week, week-in, week-out and then they get lazy and it’s a show there and a show here.

    Anyhow, just my 2 cents and keep it up – I’m subscribed.

    That was fabulous. Cheers on your first podcast. It was informative.

    You did great! Gilmore gang! Haha!

    Thanks for the kind words all – I expect we’ll do a brief one later this week (new equipment arrives on Wednesday), then we’ll take a hiatus until we’re up and running full speed the following week.

    We’ll get on a regular schedule soon.

    thanks!

    I liked the abundant show reference links that I was able to click while you were “plogging” ..
