About a month ago I realized I needed to work on my audio chops, and one of the hardest things — I’ve been told — is doing audio/radio by yourself.
As a decidedly non-tech savvy individual, I decided to stick true to my roots as I forge out into the audio and podcast world. I started my own podcast.
But it’s not like any other podcast I’ve ever encountered. Simply put, I lay my iPhone on my desk in my home office, and talk for up to 15 minutes while recording a ‘video’ which is simply the camera recording my lovely Ikea desk.
Then, I upload the video to YouTube.
At a cost of $0 — the iPhone is a sunk cost, and I use my old one — I’ve created a podcast that, while decidedly low-tech, is easy for people to listen to, and easy for me to track just how many people have listened.
And to date, not a whole lot. But hopefully as I improve, so too will the numbers. At least I’m getting experience. Today, I’m going to embed the four episodes which I’ve already recorded, for ease of viewing, and for people to get a feel for my concept.
As always, please feel free to leave comments (constructive criticisms if you will) below. Thanks.
